The park has 60 grass pitches that welcome motorhomes, touring caravans, and tents, while there is also an overflow area that expands the park capacity to over 200 pitches during race meetings at the Donington Park Circuit.

Hard standing pitches are available; there are 24 such pitches for caravans and motorhomes less than seven metres long, with another four for larger caravans and motorhomes exceeding this length. 50 of the pitches on the site benefit from 10 amp electric hook-ups so guests can plug in and enjoy the highest level of comfort and convenience afforded by their own motorhomes and caravans during their stay. Additional facilities available at the park include toilet and shower blocks, chemical waste disposal points, and Wi-Fi internet. Shower tokens cost £1 a time. During major race meetings the tent campers will be able to use a separate field. For security and to avoid disturbances at night the entrance barrier is locked from 11pm to 8am.

Pets are also able to go along to the site to enjoy a break with their owners, while on-site barbecues are permitted on the condition that they’re well raised from the ground to avoid fire hazards.

If you're camping, suggest you do not stay here. The camping area is directly under the flight path of all manner of aeroplanes taking off from the east midlands airport all night and early morning. You will not sleep. To add insult to the exorbitant £20 per person camping fee, you are required to pay £1 extra for a five minute shower in ancient and substandard shower block located a long walk away. To add to the miserable stay, the food served in the so-called restaurant was close to inedible and the beer the most expensive we've paid while in UK.
