Theres a great feeling of spaciousness here, for the site is on 20 acres within 4000 acres of parkland where you can walk, cycle or ride. Children will enjoy Clumber Park as it is part of what was once Sherwood Forest, and there are plenty of reminders of the Forests most famous resident, Robin Hood.

This was the first time, we have used a club site. The site was clean and tidy. We arrived at 8pm on Friday night. We had brought our four bikes with us, by the time we had got settled onto our pitch, the bike shed was closed and locked. We never thought it was a problem, due to signs saying CCTV on site (which later we found was untrue).
The next morning, one of our bikes had been stolen, even though we padlocked the four bikes together, the thieves just cut through the lock. Two more families lost bikes on that Friday night.
After looking on the internet (Google “bikes stolen at clumber park”) this campsite has a major problems with thieves mainly bikes and it is a regularly occurrence and my complaint is that the wardens never stressed the importance to lock the bikes away in the shed (I spoke to two). Also, the opening and closing times of the bike shed are to suit the wardens and not the visitors (7.30pm locking of the shed and 9am opening of the shed). If we got to the shed in time, it would not have fit our bikes as it only stores fifty bikes, personally I think this unacceptable when the site has 180 pitches. Also, on the booking confirmation we should of been informed (the confirmation did mention about the parvo virus-style infection for dogs but nothing about any thefts). The police had put some notices in the toilets, but we did not see them, as we use the toilet in the caravan. Also, I am glad we did not use the toilet in the middle of the night, if there are thieves about!
Due to this weekend, it has spoilt been a member with the caravan club, as we have had a couple of weekend at CL sites.
If you are planning to go Clumber Park site, DO NOT take your bikes. The site is an excellent site but has a problem with thieves.

Beautiful site set in the grounds of Clumber Park. Fabulous cycling routes and walks around the area which made for a very relaxing stay.
The site itself is quite large but very well laid out. The pitches are large with plenty of room for caravan, awning and space to sit. We backed on to a large green area which was lovely to sit and relax.
The washblocks were the usual CC standard. Clean and fresh with plenty of cubicles.
We were warned about bike theft in the area and advised to lock our bikes in the provided safe storage area which we did. This is very well used and becomes quite full but is worth it for peace of mind.
Fish and chip van on Friday evenings which was well worth it and very well used.
We will be returning. This is an excellent site in our opinion.

On the face of it this is a great site with wonderful pitches in the heart of a thick forest and with all the necessary cc facilities. The nearby national trust attractions and the walking and cycling in the area make for a great break. However, this site is flawed in that there is a huge problem here with theft. The site is in close proximity to an area of Worksop, from which organised gangs are systematically targeting the campers. There is a longstanding problem with bike theft. The site provides a bike lock up and if you do not use it your bikes will definitely be stolen - ours were taken even though they were secured to our van by a hefty cable lock so take heed. Do not leave anything of value in your awning or unattended. It's a great shame but I guess it's just down to the location. Be on your guard if you visit...
Our first visit will only be one of many. The glorious scenery and views are breathtaking. Pitches are spacious and well maintained. The previous problems with the thefts of bikes have been addressed and the helpful wardens now supply a safe storage area overnight. My 2 children of 6 and 9 loved the swing park which in all our 15 years of caravaning is the best one yet in the caravan club sites. Toilets are very clean and have more than adequate showering facilities.
The park itself is set near Sherwood Forest and a visit to the Robin Hood Centre is a must (about 15 mins away). We also spent the day in Nottingham which took about 30 mins and was well worth a visit as the shopping was brillant.
Overall this site was a hit - great location, friendly helpful wardens and perfect pitches. We have out it in our schedule for next year.

Visited in September, great site set in a lovely setting, showers spotless facilities first class, site full this weekend . Pitches ample for twin axle and awning. Good dog walks in the forest, national trust site well worth a visit. Friday night fish and chips is a must, £5 but well worth it, fish was gigantic!

The pitches are decent sizes for all outfits and easy to acsses .

Clumber Park Caravan Club Site, Worksop, Nottinghamshire
This is one of our top 3 weekend spots as it’s within the 2 hour Friday night rush for arrival. The site is nestled amongst Clumber park and caters for every need, kids play area, great shower blocks, superb pitches and the site is big enough for adult only caravanner’s to disappear away from the noise of the children’s area and enjoy seclusion within the woodland. The site shop is open all day, and we can’t a say bad thing about the wardens, all helpful and friendly. Clumber Park itself offers everything, a multitude of walks and cycle routes from 3 to 10 miles all on easy going pathways so no need for serious hiking gear, and all can be followed direct from the camp site however still plenty of hard core routes for the OS reading rambler. It has a Cycle hire centre, National Trust shops and restaurant (the tea and scones are highly recommended) and a short drive away is the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre.
We stayed here in October 2007...just for one night on our way up to Loch Ness. It is such a beautiful site, so peaceful. We would have like to stay longer. We will certainly return. Apart from having all the usual facilities the whole site was beautifully laid out and the site wardens couldn't have been more welcoming.
What can I say! This is one of our all time favourite parks. It's everything you'd expect from a top-of-the-range Caravan Club site and more.
Pitches are organised into clearings in the woodland setting, so you can rarely see more than half a dozen other vans at any one time.
Easy access into Clumber park (part of Sherwood Forest) and a whole range of activities including cycle hire, visitor centre, and wonderful walks.
Book early as it gets full very quickly in school holidays.
