Welcome to the Roch Valley District Association (RVDA) website.

As part of the Camping and Caravanning Club, RVDA are a group of campers comprising families, couples and singles of all ages dedicated to caravanning, meeting and socialising with friends and like minded people and enjoying the great outdoors.
We camp most weekends throughout the summer months and even a few in winter.
Please feel free to peruse our web site to find out what we get up to.
Any feedback you choose to provide will be well received, and, should you wish to join us on the field, you are assured of a warm RVDA welcome.

For more information about Rally Camping, see the FAQ page

A message from the Chairman

On behalf of the Roch Valley District Association (RVDA) of the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) may I welcome you to our website.  
We are a family friendly group with a vibrant Youth section. Our regular weekend meets take place over a widespread area of the North West of England attempting to cater for members near and far. Our meets cover a  variety of activities including family walks, visits to local places of interest, sports, fun & games on the field and, of course, sociable and often entertaining gatherings in the evenings.
DA meets, like ours, are an affordable form of camping. We regularly camp on defined farm rally fields, rally sites attached to official campsites or maybe sited adjacent to a village hall for evening ‘get togethers’, especially in the winter months.

Every weekend we camp, we aim to create an enjoyable and friendly atmosphere and I can assure everyone of a warm welcome on the field any meet.
If you are a member of the Camping and Caravanning Club and would like to join us, whether in a Tent, Trailer-Tent, Motor-Home or Caravan, please see our list of meets for the 2016 season and feel free to come along.

May I wish you all an enjoyable time when camping with us.

  Chairman's Pitch 2016

Welcome to the Roch Valley DA rally programme for 2016.

 The programme for this year once again gives a wide variety of locations where you can camp at affordable prices and still have the luxury of beautiful locations within the days travel or even walking distance. Notwithstanding this you also have the benefit of a Roch Valley DA

welcome on the field. The season starts early in January with a popular winter rally site at Warton Cricket Club, near Carnforth, a site close to the renowned Nature Reserve, Leighton Moss, recently seen on the BBC Autumn Watch. The rally season continues around the North West of England returning to our well established Christmas and New Year meets at Whittingham and Goosnargh SSC. Both our Temporary Holiday Sites (THS) are superbly situated on the edge of two of the best National Parks in the country. The first being the very popular Spital Farm Kendal, just outside the Lake District NP in July and the second covering the August Bank Holiday at Langcliffe, Settle.

 A couple of new rally sites have been added to the calendar with Swallowdale Farm, Goostrey, a great spot for visiting Jodrell Bank and Park fold near Jumbles reservoir outside Bolton, a lovely area in the East Lancashire hills.

 I’m sure there’s something for everyone in our 2016 programme, so have a browse in the booklet and I look forward to seeing many old and new friends of the Camping and Caravanning fraternity out on the field. Have a great season camping with the Roch Valley DA


 Please review our list of rallies detailed here in our 2016 programme. I am sure there are some which will interest you and give you reason the camp with us, perhaps for its location, the time of the year or your travel plans, but may I also additionally offer a warm welcome from the Roch Valley DA and all its members.

Remember Rally camping with the Camping and Caravanning Club is sold as an affordable means of camping, but with its friendly atmosphere its there for the enjoyment of all members and we would encourage you to come and give it a try if you haven’t done so before.

For further details throughout the year you can keep updated via our website www.rvda.info or even befriend us on Facebook, just search for Roch Valley DA or click on the facebook link.
