Stayed for 2 weeks in June 2014. Was a bit worried at first as I had read reviews, plus a friend of mine had shown me a face book page which made me very worried about going to Winkups.
Arrived there about 4pm and it only took 5 minutes to book in Eileen the receptionist couldn't have been more helpful nothing seemed to be too much for her - she seems to have the patience of a saint ! Caravan was spotless, far better than we really expected for a dog friendly caravan, but I think it will need replacing in a year or two. The park for the kids was adequate and litter and dog muck free but would be nice if they added a few more things in the park for kids to do. Used the pool a few times and the kids loved it, didn't see any signs of too much chlorine which we had been worried about after reading reviews. Was interested to read that another reviewer that also stayed in June said the pool was shut all week, we were there for 2 weeks and it was open all the time we were there and a friend who also went in June after we had returned home said that it had been open all the time she was there. The shop was adequate but rather over priced so we avoided using it and instead used one 5 minutes walk down the road just past Sonnys Bar. The chip shop was ok cant complain about the food BUT the prices were again a bit too high so we just used a different one down the road.
The main club at the weekends was good, bar staff were very polite and cheerful, bar prices could have been lower but clubs on holiday parks are never the cheapest are they ? Also there is a good choice of bars down the road if you want a change. The amusement arcade just down the road has a café which does good cheap meals if that's your thing. The sports bar is nice but the chairs are a bit on the hard side ! This camp is by no means perfect but I think some of the reviews are a bit unfair and maybe exaggerated but that's just my opinion. Overall you get what you pay for and I really cant find anything major to complain about. Much to my surprise the bin area was clean and tidy most of the time from what I saw, the biggest problem with the bins is the people who just throw their rubbish on the ground rather than lifting the lid and putting their refuse in the bins ! I would encourage friends and relatives to use this camp.I was surprised by how much we enjoyed it - as I said before we were worried about going after reading all the reviews on here and face book -glad we took the risk !
