Clitheroe Camping and Caravanning Club Site is ideally situated in the heart of the Ribble Valley. Stood on the banks of the River Ribble, our site is one of the most popular caravan parks in Lancashire, and is open from late March to early December. We have a large number of pitches available for motorhomes, touring caravans, and tents, with serviced pitches, including with electricity hook-ups, available for use. We also have washing up and chemical disposal facilities on our site, as well as Wi-Fi access for guests. Clitheroe Camping and Caravanning Club Site is also pet friendly and offers wide open spaces for pets to run around in.
The park itself sits a short distance outside the town of Clitheroe, which is accessible via car or on foot in a matter of minutes. The town is famous for the Norman Keep that still stands there from the 12th century, it overlooks the town and offers dramatic views of the surrounding area.
If you want to head to the big city for shopping or cosmopolitan bars and restaurants, you are only a short train ride away from Manchester. Alternatively, if you want to hit the famed seaside towns of England’s west coast, you can always jump in the car and check out Morecambe, Blackpool, and many other towns in that direction.
To the north of the site, The Forest of Bowland offers miles of beautiful unspoiled landscape to explore at your leisure. You’ll be able to hire bicycles if you don’t want to tackle it on foot, while horse riding is another popular pursuit than many people choose to do while staying with us.
Speaking of animals, you can get up close and personal with some of the biggest and scariest ones on Earth by spending the day at Knowsley Safari Park, which is home to lions, tigers, and many more amazing creatures from across the world.
Other nearby towns such as Burnley feature museums and attractions, and our park is truly a great base for exploring the heart of Lancashire, whether in the shape of the towns to the south or in the greenery to the north, including the Yorkshire Dales and the rolling countryside on the doorstep of Clitheroe Camping and Caravanning Club Site.
A stay at our well-sheltered park allows you to switch off and relax, but also puts you in arm’s reach of the English coast and some of the most desirable greenery to be found anywhere in the country.

Excellent site for families. Very quiet in evenings, pitches are not too close to each other. Facilities are lovely and clean and the people are all friendly. Lovely location by the side of a river with small pitch and put near by and a swimming pool accross the road. Great pub with fayre 10 minute walk away overall 10/10
