After turning off opposite a retail development, Riverside just seems to magically apear when most will be reaching for the map.

I loved the enclosed nature of this site, surrounded by high level trees, shelter certainly isn't a problem.

Facilities are clean and staff are friendly.

The on site bar is always a welcome addition for when you just can't be bothered to go back out.

A perfect city break with a touch of escapism. Would return time and time again. Dog friendly too!

This is the eleventh year we have stayed at this site. Both convenient for the A38 as well as Plymouth City itself.

Welcoming reception and facilities for late comers overnight before going to pre-booked pitch.

From this site it is easily accessible to the Park and Ride and roads into Cornwall and various scenic parts of Devon

The site is well kept and we have seen quite a few changes over the years. There is now a residential section on the site which is not intrusive to the site.

All the showers and toilet areas have been refurbished and there is now facilities for Motor homes and caravans with tanks and direct water supply as well as waste water outlets.

Level pitches on grass, Hard standing and gravel are well maintained and plenty of room between units.

A well kept pool which is deep enough to stand up in and swim. Heated and alongside is a small child's pool. Nice laid out patio area.

The restaurant is very welcome with a varied menu of freshly cooked food. Our highlight of the week was the Sunday Carvery which is a really good value for the price and includes sweet.

The Bar is well stocked and run by Steve, offering a full range of cost effective prices. Entertainment is laid on at various evenings of the week.

We shall continue to use this site in future years.

We stayed here for the Jubilee Bank holiday weekend so we could be near to our daughter at Plymouth Uni.

To be honest there was nothing wrong with the site but we just didn't really like it.

The site itself is very open plan and the pitches are of a reasonable size.

The electric hook up was ok but tripped too easily if you turned too much on (must have been low ampage) Also the site itself kept tripping out and took ages to sort out.

The shop had a very limited variety of stock and we did not use it as there is a Sainsburys close by.

The Bar looked alright if very dated. We did use the takeaway and to be honest it was not brilliant, the fish was obviously frozen (Supermarket type battered fish) and as such not that good value for money, although the portions of Scampi were huge.

It was too cold to use the pool, I did go for a look and it looked a little tired but functional and clean.

The shower blocks were clean but there were little in the way of facilities to hang your cloths whilst taking a shower.

There is a superb area beside the site for dog walks along the river and my pair loved swimming in the river so that was great.

Our biggest problem was very noisy and inconsiderate campers which the wardens did nothing about. Music was loud until after 11:30 and some were still up parting till gone 01:30. I complained the next day but this seemed to make no difference.

The combination of noisy people and the weather prompted us to leave a day early.

All in all I would not return to this site as it just felt a little TLC was missing.

We came down to celebrate my birthday and see how the city had changed in the 20 years since I was at Uni there.

The site is in a great location, don't be put off by the proximity to Marsh Mills roundabout and the trading estate. You are surrounded by trees in a well sheltered site with just a little local noise on the side road from teenagers going back and forth to the local football field behind.

Easy walk to the Park and Ride with lunch at Capt. Jasper's and the Aquarium after. It's a city so everything you need (food, tent spares, Halfords, etc) is nearby.

Out of the city Dartmoor Zoo is a good day out (and they are linked to the Aquarium so saver tickets available) and there are good beaches within 20 minutes drive.

Spotless toilet block and plenty of space on our pitch; but we were almost out of season so none of it was put under pressure.

Unfortunately we did have to leave early but we will definitely be going back.

We were surprised at the construction work going on considering that the site is opened all year round. We were not told about the construction work until we had paid. Told also about the dogs had to be exercised off site, not a very welcoming tone as we did not know whether that we literally had to take the dog in the car to off site and they were not allowed to put a paw down, this was clarified in their handout, nevertheless that could have been said at the time as we didn't feel welcome.

It appeared that none of the facilities were open, but to be fair they had stated that in some of their advertising, however it is important to make the user feel welcome, especially during construction work, moreover this was quite an expensive site in relation to the others we visited.

The area is a very good site and it has many walks along the riverside, the site allows great access to north Cornwall, Plymouth and Plympton, the camper will easily have wonderful days out in Plymouth which is steeped in history. Give yourself plenty of time here for days out and value for money shopping in Plymouth City Centre.

Two Supermarket superstores are close by, so you have the choice selection of food, clothing and electrical. However there is nothing like the town centre to give you retail therapy!

This site is a must stay and gives you great access much of the surrounding attractions. We will go there again.

Excellent site for visiting Plymouth with the P&R bus service a 20 min. Walk although last bus back is 6-30 pm. If a later bus back is required then the No. 21/22 drops off by the MacDonalds near the campsite, this bus can be picked up by Poundland on The Royal Parade.

As it was closed season the site facilities were shut so found it very peaceful and relaxing with only the Tawny Owl from the surrounding trees keeping me awake at night.

Thought the toilet/showers were clean and modern and had no trouble with the hot water. There is a cycle track to the city centre.

Had a peek at the closed club house and noticed they do real ale which is unusual and perhaps worthy of a visit sometime in the future, thought the reception friendly and helpful.
