Riverside Caravan Park is a small, picturesque site found close to the centre of the historic town of Worksop. The site is beautifully landscaped and combines lush lawn with woodland and flower beds to create an idyllic feel across the whole park. The park has 60 pitches in total, featuring “all weather” pitches along with hard standing pitches for guests wishing to use them.
Riverside Caravan Park Worksop welcomes motorhomes, tents, and touring caravans, and all the pitches have electric hook-ups. Guests are welcome to bring pets with them to stay on the site.
If you enjoy fishing as part of your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Nottinghamshire, this could be the campsite for great fishing holidays. The campsite is bordered to the north by the River Ryton, and a short distance away is the Chesterfield Canal, which offers a number of wonderful fishing points, while Sandhill Lake offers another great fishing spot a short distance from the canal.
Worksop is a thriving market town with a different market operating almost every day. This feature, allied to a selection of modern chain stores and restaurants, makes it worthwhile to visit Worksop for a unique day out. With each day offering a different event or experience, this Nottinghamshire town is definitely somewhere to explore more than once.
Make Riverside Caravan Park your ideal retreat for exploring Worksop, Nottingham, the Peaks, Sheffield and Lincoln. This campsite is in a beautiful part of the world, which combines a sense of history and culture with the wild, untamed outdoors, to magical effect.
Facilities available on-site for guests’ comfort and convenience during their camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Worksop include a tourist information hut that doubles as a shop, waste disposal points, and a free library.
Guests also have free access to Worksop Cricket and Sports Club during their stay, which sits on the riverbank opposite Riverside Caravan Park.
The town also has a range of attractions worth discovering. The Chesterfield Canal is great for fishing and also offers a wonderful flat route for gentle walks that will lead you to several other significant spots around town. Your canalside stroll can also lead you to woodland and open spaces if you're keen to explore further. The Chesterfield Canal also connects to the River Trent to the east.
Worksop Priory Church is a 12th century building great for visiting and popular with tourists, while Mr Straw’s House is a National Trust Property and one of Worksop’s busiest tourist attractions (http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/mr-straws-house). The house shows how people lived in the 1920s and it's best to get there early to ensure you avoid the rush!
Culture lovers should head to the outskirts of Worksop and take in the Harley Gallery, which has a nationally recognised museum and craft shop, while Clumber Park and Thorseby Hall are other brilliant historic buildings on most must see lists in Worksop. Clumber Park also offers acres of countryside and parkland to explore, while lovers of the outdoors are encouraged to head to the nearby Creswell Crags.
Making Riverside Caravan Park in Worksop your base makes good sense if you would like to visit Sheffield and Nottingham. Both are easily reached, while a cross country drive takes guests to another popular market town, Lincoln, with its castle, museum of rural life, beautiful cathedral and the river.
Visit Robin Hood Country – Sherwood Forest – while you're enjoying your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Nottinghamshire.
Visit the Peak District National Park while you're on holiday in Worksop, too. The Peak District offers plenty to do for those looking to get active outdoors, with miles of walking and cycling routes as well as opportunities for relaxing with a picnic and enjoying the surrounding area.

I have used this camp site on numerous occasions and I have found the staff very friendly & helpfull. The facillities have always been imacculate and the site is always kept spotless. unfortunatley some of the people that have used the site in the recent past have had a bitching session because they could not get there own way & have tried so demean this beautiful canmpsite with there petty childish squables between fellow caravners. All I can say is its time they grew up and stop throwing there rattles out of there COTS. This campsite & staff get a well deserved 100% for the work & effort they put in. HEY don't just take my word give it a try .........................

Me and my family have been going to riverside for over a year and we have loved every trip. It is within walking distance of the town centre and canal where my sons go fishing. The site wardens take pride in the site and are very helpful. The toilet and shower blocks are kept very clean however there is no disabled toilet in the mens and neither mens or womens have a disabled shower. There is a little club that site visitors can go in and there is cricket and bowls to sit and watch.

we have stayed at this caravan park numerous times, and have found it to be clean and tidy, we have never found the showers or toilets in a mess, we think it is quiet and relaxing, a superbly run place by people who take a pride in what they do.i would personally recommend it to everyone.
