Welcome all to the ROCH Valley District Association (RVDA) website.

As part of the Camping and Caravanning Club, RVDA are a group of campers comprising of families, couples and individuals of all ages dedicated to caravanning, socialising and meeting with friends of other DA'S who enjoy the great outdoors.
We camp most weekends throughout the Spring/Summer and Autumn months, and even in winter, with social events in Club rooms and Halls.

Please feel free to peruse our web site and site booklet to find out what we have planned for the year.
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.

A message from the Chairman and Committee

On behalf of the Roch Valley District Association (RVDA) of the Camping and Caravanning Club (C&CC) may I welcome you to our website.
We are a family friendly group with regular weekend meets taking place over a widespread area of the North West of England.
We attempt to cater for members near and far, Lancashire, Cheshire etc. 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 2017 season or contact me by e-mail or phone for any further details.

May I wish you all an enjoyable time and experience, when camping with us and we look forward to you all camping with us again on some future occasion.

ROCH Valley DA

Welcome all units and DA's to our 

Halloween Meet at Hamilton House Farm,

St Michael's on Wyre.


Welcome all, to the ROCH Valley DA 2017 Camping Season. 

Many of the sites this year are the ones that we have camped with previously, within the North West and Cheshire.

The 2017 camping season programme includes 5 sites that we have not visited for a number of years.

You will note that many weekend meets have now been extended by popular demand to 3, 4 or 5 night meets, plus we have extended our THS at Spital Farm, at Kendal to 23 nights.

These extended meets have been booked to accommodate our members and of course visitors  from other DA’s, all who have expressed their wishes to have an extended weekends or Bank Holiday/THS with us, rather than limit a meet to 2 nights or a weekend.

I have also included in our meet programme The ‘FEAST OF LANTERNS’ at DALE HEY at Ribchester 12th - 15th October 2017, An old tradition of the DA and its members.

The Theme for the F.O.L. will be announced at the A.G.M. in March 2017  and Published on this website and facebook.

There are new sites and locations which it is our intention to book for 2018 to make an even more varied camping programme for the near future.

I am looking forward to the 2017 season, and the support of all our Stewards, Members and visitors.

I would like to thank all the RVDA committee members for all their support in 2016 and I’m sure with the combination of our DA Members we will have another successful year in our 2017  Camping Calendar Season.

I look forward to seeing you all at our meets and on site very soon,

Best Regards to all,

Chris Riding
