Clifton Campville is a village and civil parish in Staffordshire, England. It lies on the River Mease, about 10 miles (16 km) east of the City of Lichfield, 6 miles (10 km) west of Measham and 7 miles (11 km) north of Tamworth. The village lies very close to Stafforshire's borders with Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Warwickshire. In 2001 the parish had a population of 764.

In 1848 the parish included both Haunton and Harlaston, and also Chilcote in Derbyshire. Clifton itself then had a population of 341, while the population of the whole parish was 921 on 6,300 acres (25 km2). The core parish of Clifton and Haunton covered around 3,000 acres (12 km2) in 1851. Nowadays the Church of England parish still includes Haunton and Chilcote, and also Statfold.

The parish became part of Tamworth Poor Law Union in 1836; in 1866 Harlaston became a civil parish in its own right. In 1894 Clifton-with-Haunton became a civil parish within the newly constituted Tamworth Rural District. The civil parish became part of Lichfield Rural District during the boundary changes of 1934. In 1974 it became part of the new non-metropolitan district of Lichfield. The parish council meets jointly with the neighbouring parish of Thorpe-Constantine.
