Does anyone happen to know if there is still any evidence of the camp standing?

Given that the site is still a holiday resort I would think it's entirely possible that at least some remnants are still there (maybe some internal roads, steps, walls or other such things)?

I did search this about two years ago with little results.

I'm up for a trip to have a look if anyone fancies it.

I fancy it but I have no idea when I'll find the money to go. Obviously for me all my overseas trips are to Britain which has to be a higher priority for me than anywhere else I'd like to go.

When I win the lottery though, it's definitely on the agenda!

I just looked up "old bahama bay" on google earth.

I am assuming this is probably the Butlin's site as it has a marina and what looks like a hotel. Not certain though.

This was the best image I could get unfortunately so impossible to identify any possible Bulin's features.

Yahoo maps was much better, but I couldn't get any closer than this and strangely, there's a big chunk missing right across the middle of the resort!
