Located on One of the North's best-known mature coarse fisheries, The Oaks Lakes Caravan Park is adjacent to ten match and pleasure fishing lakes.
Whether you want to fish or just have a quiet relaxing break beside the Yorkshire moors, we are the place to come as all our pitches are super-sized hardstanding and include electric hook-up.
Please note due to the quiet nature of fishing we are an adults-only, No Dog park.
With easy access roads from the A1 and A19 and central to the north's major towns and cities, including York, Leeds and Harrogate, there is something here for everyone.
Types of fish in the lakes include carp, tench, bream, roach, rudd, gudgeon, perch, barble, ide, crucian, carb, golden tench and golden orfe.
We also have a specimen fishing lake with grass carp to 25lbs, ghost carp to 26lbs and common mirrors to 28lbs.
Caravanners and campers can benefit from reduced fishing day tickets which can be purchased on the day at the side of the lake.
We do not have fishing equipment for hire but we do sell it in the on-site fully stocked tackle shop. Next to this we have a cafe serving hot and cold food. Both are open every day all year round.
If you don't want to fish then there is plenty to do whatever time of the year you visit.
