Excellent site with good facilities

Plenty of room between pitches. Toilets were clean and there was plenty of hot water.

The kids loved it, the pirate ship area & woodland play areas kept them entertained for hours. We stayed for 5 days and each night it was quiet at 10pm, so no problem getting the kids to sleep. Plenty of open space for games. Tennis courts are free to use and they even provided rackets if you didn't have any. 2 swimming pools (1 for toddlers & the other for everyone else) which did not seem to get crowded at any point during our stay.

There is some where to eat but thought it was a bit expensive for what was offered

I wanted to update the reviews of this site, whilst agreeing with most of the positive comments below.

Firstly, it appears to have changed its name to River Dart Adventures. but there is no real change to the campsite.

The whole setting of the camp is wonderful - between two sets of hills, feeling like it's miles from anywhere (but less than a mile to Ashburton). The facilities for children are absolutely great - three separate park areas, one with a water theme (inc pirate boat), one with a fort and aerial runway, and a third with a jugle theme.

Staff seem pleasant, and the toilets and showers are excellent. Our pitch, in theory, was small, but in fact we were told to use what ever space we needed.

On the downside:
- the site has a significant slope
- it is possible to be some distance from a toilet
- the lower field gets flooded
- the shop and cafe are unremarkable
- the shower block 'fused' regularly

In summary, not perfect, but one of the best sites we have been to.

I can highly recommend this site. Pitches are spacious and not too crowded, facilities are excellent, the pirate ship and wooded play areas ensured we hardly saw the kids. There is also plently of open space for games and nice walks.It is pricey but worth it for all the extras. The only downside was the resturant which serves cafeteria style food at overinflated prices - unsurprisingly it wasn't very popular whilst we were there, bit of a missed opportunity on the part of the owners. However everything else was excellent - we will definitely be back.

Have visited twice now and endorse the previous comments. Excellent campsite with fantastic facilities for the kids. Was rather pricey but worth it! 2 shower blocks, one with famiy bathroom (fantastic). All hot water and washing up facilities free and facilties kept clean. Pitches are spacious and we found no problems with noise at night etc. Campsite does have small inclines and some pitches are on a slight hill but not enough to cause any problems. Snack bar and bar serving food on site. Great food in bar, not too expensive and portions are massive!! (2 could share 1 meal!!)
Camp shop opens at 8am and sells papers, bread etc... not a fantastic selection but just enough to do. Nearby is Ashburton (1 mile) with small Spar, open late and various shops inc takeaways and there is a big Tesco's about 7 miles away in Newton Abbott. Coast is 10 miles away (Paignton). All in all we thoroughly recommend this site and would hvae no hesitation in returning!!

I have no intention of telling you how great this place is - or there'll be no chance of getting booked in to go there again, and again and again!!!!

Fantastic site with fabulous water play area for kids including pirate ship with its own "plank". Play areas are a real delight and the facilities are excellent - certainly enough to keep the family fully amused. The River Dart Country Park also offers "adventures" for kids which inlcude an indoor climbing wall, special super zip line, canooing plus various other stunt-like activities which do cost extra but are reasonable value. The toilets/showers were very good with individual vanity cubicles and showers were FOC. The club house offers three pool tables, reasonable arcade style games and an adaquate lunch/evening menu. In high season there are two videos shown per night at 7pm & 9pm on a very large screen - perfect for the children and gives the adults a bit of peace & quiet. During our time we were offered such films as "Shrek", "Free Willy", "Lilo & Stitch" & "Cats and Dogs". There is a small snack bar at lunchtimes which is marginally cheaper, an excellent shop and a small but good swimming pool available to campers only. Every activity is supervised. Pitches are spacious and have good drainage. We paid around £200 for the week which is rather expensive, but with all on offer turned out to be good value. The only downside for us was that we probably picked the only week of the summer holidays where it rained every single day! The scenery is beautiful and lush - perhaps the rain is responsible for that! I am more than happy to recommend this site, despite the rain!
