This lovely park nestles on the banks of the river Ure encircled by the beautiful rolling countryside of North Yorkshire. The park is a few minutes walk from the historic market town of Ripon, with its magnificent Cathedral, Local shops, Public houses and restaurants.
There are grass and hard-standing pitches here, with electric meters. They are all located close to the amenities such as the bar, shop and reception, shower block and toilets. It's a great base for exploring the West and South of Yorkshire, with the Yorkshire Dales a short drive away, Lightwater Valley Theme Park also very close, plus the history and culture of Ripon.
Barrier controlled entry
Ideally placed as a base for you to explore the Yorkshire Dales or the Yorkshire Moors.
Within half an hours drive are the lovely town of Harrogate, with its superb gardens, Ripley Castle, Knaresborough and Thirsk with its market and horse racing.
A little further afield is the ancient walled city of York with its world famous "shambles" shopping area.

we stayed 4 nights had a great time. toilets cleaned every day, showers excellent always hot water. staff very friendly and helpful but best of all was what it cost for our electric useage. the electric is metered and you buy your cards when you arrive. We were advised to get 5x£1 cards and use them as we needed them. We ran our electric as we do on any other site (electric oven, kettle, toaster, lights) and in total for the 4 nights we used £3.00. Excellent value when you realise what other sites charge.

Lovely caravan park but the wardens at this park seem to make their own rules which they won't bend at all they could be the spoiling of this park.Toilets and shower block not as clean as they could be.

We booked at this park as a group of 3 families, 2 in caravans and 1 tent. We appreciate that tents and caravans cannot always be placed together and accept this, however as we paid most of the monies for the stay prior to arrival we expected that our pitches were booked and could be placed together for the caravans. One of our party arrived later than the others, and were greated by a less than helpful staff member dictating that pitches could not be together. One of the party were crammed in at the top end of the park and the other at the bottem. With both having young children this made it very awkward at bedtime. There were empty pitches next to one of the vans and we really couldn't see a problem with the pitches being placed closer together, however it seemed like it was their rules or nothing, despite the fact that we were paying customers.
If we hadn't explained that we wanted to be together then I could understand, however we did so at the time of booking, all forms went in togteher, the 1st to arrived asked if we could be and then we also did on arrival. 1st come 1st served is all we kept hearing.
Whilst we were at the site we found the chemical waste blocking up a fresh water drain. err!!!
