If you are coming on Friday 17th afternoon/evening:
There are no gates or barriers at the club so arrive whenever you like. The postcode is PE31 7RB.
From the south take the A149. After the roundabout for Dersingham and before the roundabout for Snettisham turn left onto Beach Road. Proceed 1½ miles you will go over the flood defence bank. Continue to the forecourt of Snettisham Caravan Park, a big white Snettisham Caravan Park clubhouse confronts you. Go left across the forecourt leaving caravan park to the right. There an unmade road forks; go right leaving the lake on your left. Keep on this road. You should see boat masts of the Sailing Club ahead. Youve arrived.
NB there are many caravan parks on Beach Road; make sure you are looking for the correct one. If you haven't gone over the flood bank you haven't gone far enough.
At the club drive up over the sea bank onto the grass beach field. Park your boat on the right (north) side of the field. If you have a camper van park it on the right.
If you are camping pitch your tent to the left (south) side to the south of the containers and amongst the parked dinghies or on the grass bank that abuts the beach. Members are willing to accommodate visitors. Enquire by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Otherwise, this is a good place to look VisitWestNorfolk.com
TOP TIPS FOR CAMPERS:
The beach is shingle beneath the grass. A hammer is the best way to get pegs in the ground.
It's mid-summer so light very early, which wakes up the oyster catchers which make a lot of noise. Youll probably sleep better with an eye mask and earplugs.

Friday: 6:00 pm onwards.
