Linton Lock Leisure Ways is a charming caravan park in a river marina, found a short distance outside of York in the village of Linton-on-Ouse. The park is close to the banks of the River Ouse itself and welcomes motorhomes, touring campervans, and tents onto the site. There is one static caravan for hire, subject to availability. A number of seasonal pitches are available, if you'd like to leave your caravan parked here all year round!
Electric hook-ups are available at Linton Lock and there are some large hardstandings big enough even for long motorhomes. While there are no fully serviced super pitches available at the site, there are water and sanitary facilities available, and the positioning of the hedgerows on site means that each pitch offers privacy to guests staying at Linton Lock Leisure Ways.
The campsite and village are both wonderful locations for anyone who prefers quiet and relaxed camping and caravan holidays, away from the all-action, lively types of campsites. The park is within easy reach of some exceptional local attractions for anyone who would like to let their hair down, off-site.
What attracts many to Linton Lock Leisure Ways is the beauty of the surrounding area, along with the weir and salmon leap. There are miles of countryside around with varying degrees of terrain to explore on foot or on a bicycle. There are plenty of places to go if you enjoy fishing or a round of golf close to the park. Meanwhile the surrounding towns and villages all have their share of pubs and eateries, where guests can enjoy drinks, meals and takeaways. Guests who are feeling energetic can even plot out a scenic riverside cycle route into York and make their way into the city that way.

The views were pretty good over the river but the grass in the field we were in was far to long and looked pretty poor, the toilet and shower blocks were also poor, one toilet for men! The male shower block was very good but the female was one was really shabby and dirty. This wasn't a cheap site by any means £20.00 with hook up and certainly wasn't worth the money, will not be returning in the near future, a good outlook let down by the facilities.
