Alan Rogers Awards – Results 2011
The Alan Rogers Campsite Awards were launched in 2004 and have proved a great success.
Our awards have a broad scope and before committing to our winners, we carefully consider more than 2,000 campsites featured in our guides, taking into account comments from our site assessors, our head office team and, of course, our readers.
Our award winners come from the four corners of Europe, from southern Portugal to Croatia, and this year we are making awards to campsites in 10 different countries.
Needless to say, it’s an extremely difficult task to choose our eventual winners, but we believe that we have identified a number of campsites with truly outstanding characteristics.
In each case, we have selected an outright winner, along with two highly commended runners-up. Listed below are full details of each of our award categories and our winners for 2011.
Alan Rogers Progress Award 2011
This award reflects the hard work and commitment undertaken by particular site owners to improve and upgrade their site.
Alan Rogers Welcome Award 2011
This award takes account of sites offering a particularly friendly welcome and maintaining a friendly ambience throughout readers’ holidays.
DE3670 Camping Hopfensee - Germany
IR9650 Woodlands Park Touring Caravan & Camping Park - Ireland
Alan Rogers Active Holiday Award 2011
This award reflects sites in outstanding locations which are ideally suited for active holidays, notably walking or cycling, but which could extend to include such activities as winter sports or watersports.
Alan Rogers Innovation Award 2011
Our Innovation Award acknowledges campsites with creative and original concepts, possibly with features which are unique, and cannot therefore be found elsewhere. We have identified innovation both in campsite amenities and also in rentable accommodation.

Alan Rogers Family Site Award 2011
Many sites claim to be child friendly but this award acknowledges the sites we feel to be the very best in this respect.
Alan Rogers Readers’ Award 2011
We believe our Readers’ Award to be the most important. We simply invite our readers (by means of an on-line poll at www.alanrogers.com) to nominate the site they enjoyed most.
