First time visit to this site and loved every minute. The location, views and surrounding area are amazing. We set up on the river view field next to the river overlooking the lock and weir which was gorgeous to wake to.

The site facilities are excellent and mostly new and we never had to wait for the showers, the grassed areas were well kept although part of our pitch had been re-seeded following wear but didn't cause any problems.

The small cafe / bar on site is lovely and the homemade chips or chilli Nachos are well worth a try. York was close by and the park and ride made shopping easy.

We will be going back to this well run site and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet site with amazing views.

We visited here for 6 nights during August with our 2 children 11 and 6 and 2 dogs. Pitch was overlooking the river and was plenty big enough for the caravan, awning and partitioning windbreaks.

Only downside was there was a large mudpatch in the middle of the riverside field, which was a bit pongy. We used 5 worth of electricity and that was using the electric kettle, 2 TV's and the fridge, lights etc.

But beware the way the pitches are means that your hook up may be in the middle of someone else's pitch so if you need to top up the electricity (you have to buy cards) you might have to go onto next doors pitch.

On site pub is nice, quite cheap and there are plenty of local walks, pubs etc. Toilets/showers are clean although the 20 minutes for the shower is way too long and they don't drain that well.

York is close by and we used the park and ride which is 2. 60 per adult, kids are free and that includes all day parking and the buses run every 10 mins.

Another bonus is most tourist venues (jorvik etc. ) is admission gives 12 months return visits so we will come back next year. (personally, I thought Jorvik was way overpriced but check out DIG, the kids loved it)

Very picturesque site, but tents seem to be a second thought. This site seems primarily for static, caravans and motor homes and then where these units could not go, tents were given the space.

We were directed to a very flat area, but this had the overflow gate for the river. On a wet bank holiday weekend, this could be worrying, but they were not used.

The managers, were helpful. There is a cafe on site, which is not linked to the site.

There is no play area, but space to run around and play games.

The facilities are a bit limited. From our pitch it was a bit of a hike to the toilets and showers. (Our neighbours went up in their car)

There were 2 toilets for the ladies and 2 showers in the ladies and gents. There were queues to use the toilets and showers some of the time.

The showers cost 1, which is a bit steep, even though they are on for about 20 min, which is far to long for most people. The washing up facilities are equally limited with a single Belfast sink, that was not undercover, with a narrow shelf to put washed and dry pots. There were often queues to use this solitary sink.

There is no shop on site, but a local shop 10 minutes walk away, if you turn left out of the site. There are also 3 very nice pubs. Turn left and there is a pub 15 minutes walk away, turn right and there are 2 more, 20 minutes walk away.

The site is also very handy as a base to visit York and the surrounding area.

We spent 4 nights at this site which is only a 10 minute drive into York.

We were allocated a large pitch in the corner of the electric hook up field and noticed immediately that we were a good 500 - 600 metres away from the toilet and shower facilities.

The site soon filled with other campers with tourers and tents sharing the same field but it never looked overcrowded.

The cafe/pub on the site is excellent and the food is superb. Children can help open and close the lock if they wish which our kids loved.

We took 4 dogs and there are numerous footpaths and fields for walking, one of which goes to Newton on Ouse (20 minutes walk) where the Blacksmiths Arms is highly recommended.

All in all a good cheap site but the only let down is the long walk to the toilet facilities and lack of them (1 toilet and 2 wet rooms in the Gents, 2 toilets and 2 wet rooms in the ladies)

Excellent location, overlooking river and lock, good walks along river and to local village. Some pitches look directly over river, you can launch own boat from site for a small fee and also fish from site. Never used toilet or showers as we have own facilities in our caravan.

Owners of the site and the cafe/bar very friendly and accommodating our little girl was rushed into hospital and they helped to look after our dogs and unit whilst we were in and out of hospital. Will definitely be returning soon.

Pros

We just got home from a great 2 nights at this site. We where met with a smile and shown the facilities on the way to the pitch. We where in the 'main camping field'. On arrival there was just 3 other tents in the field and we had no problem finding a spot for the tent. Quite even ground other than the dip for the sluice gate run off.

The site has obviously had a lot of money spent on it recently, new fencing and gates round all the fields, lovely wet rooms and loos that where spotless. Even a decent 20p operate hair drier!

The showers are 1 for 20, bit of a waste for me as I had no other female who could nip in after me. I can just about drag out 10 mins! The entry to the showers/loos is by number entry system now, no key fobs, but you do have to remember the number at 3am (not an easy task!) Our field was a fair walk from the loos so I had to ask my son well in advance if he needed to go!

We didn't use the cafe bar but it did look good, lovely views over the river and lock.

Cons

The main field is a bit cut off by the mound (flood defences) between it and the electric field.

Long walk to the loos

Flies!

The main field has the flood gate entering it with a ditch for water to get to the flood plain. There was stagnate water by the gates and also a small stream running through a fenced off area in the middle of the field. Obviously that means flies and mozzies! Take you spray for the tent and yourself as we had hundreds of flies sharing the tent!

We will be returning, but maybe next time we will have a riverside pitch not the main field. My 5 year old loved it, we did too so a HIT! oh and only 15 a night !
