Lovely place to stay, we camped there during the very last weekend of the season (end sept). A large group of us met there for a friends birthday it was lovely, even though not everything was open being end of season such as the canoeing, climbing wall pool etc, and the shop didn't have much stock but we were readily prepared for that, there was still enough activities to keep us occupied such as the the assult course in the woods (so much fun and free too!)

Toilet/shower block not the best in the world, but it was a busy place, and staff chose such an awkward time to come and clean (1st thing in the morning on leaving day!) so there was a big queue by the time they were done!

We have since been back there for a charity fun day as its only and hour or so away, and it made us think about booking another camping trip there in the summer!

We loved it here. We booked without really studying the site plan and we were very fortunate with are pitch which was in a lovely location and absoulutely huge. I thought there was loads to do both free and things to pay for although reasonably prices. It is a place that covers all age groups.

The area is great with lots of other places to visit close by if that's what you want to do.

The cafe was good, the shop ok and I was really impressed with facilities. There are plenty of showers, toilets etc and they were constantly cleaned by an army of people and then appeared to be checked by someone else. It rained a lot whilst we were there but other than grass which no one could help they were spotless.

A couple of recommendations, wetsuits for little ones as water activities are abundant and beach shoes for everyone going in the lake.

Visited last month for a week for the first time. Arrival was a little tricky down a single track road when caravan met motorhome! Thankfully the motorhome was able to reverse to a slightly wider point in the road.

Pitch was large with plenty of room for car, caravan, awning with plenty of room left for the kids to play.

Fantastic site loads for the kids to do, canoeing, kayaks, wall climbing, play lake, water zorbs (giant blow up beach balls you could climb into and float on the river), obstacle course. Pub/bar on site was good and not bad value. Shop sold the basics. Toilet block was just about passable. Unfortunately they don't leave mop buckets in the block like on some other sites so instead of people mopping the floor after theyve been in the shower, we ended up getting into a shower cubicle that had a muddy grass covered floor. On site swimming pool was okay, could do with a bit of a refurb. Would definitely visit this site again as activities for the kids were fantastic.

We stayed here for the first time & would definitely like to return.It is a gem of a place with beautiful grounds & lots of activities for children.Although it was high season the wait for some paying activities was minimal.There was also plenty of free activities to entertain too. We ate at the on site bar and the food was reasonable & tasted good.Shower blocks are looking tired & could do with being renovated though to be fair some other campers amaze me with their treatment of the facilities.A nightly round to ensure noise is kept down would be helpful too as persons behind us were very loud until about 1am.We didn't complain to them as there must have been 12/15 of them which can be quite intimidating when they appear worse for drink.Having said that though I would hope they are in the minority and did have a lovely time.

Great site with so much for children (and young at heart adults!) to do you don't need to venture outside of the park! We were pleased with our pitch which was level and private. I recommend the Sunday carvery - best we have had in ages.
The toilet block was average in cleanliness but this to be expected on such a large site. I think the toilets were a bit of a trek especially if you have young children. Worth checking the site layout before booking to make sure the facilities aren't too far away.
Swimming pool closes at 4pm which is a shame. The weather was lovely one day. We arrived 3.50pm not knowing the pool was about to be closed and got removed after just 5 mins!

On arrival down a small stretch of single file rd we arrived at river dart. Once paid and allocated our pitch we started to level our caravan and what a job it was.We had a chock under the caravan and it was right on the top and the van was still un level it took us around 20mins just to decide which way to put the van for the best level as we would be here for a week but Alas we never managed it.:-(

The pitch size we had was huge including in the pitch price a small pop up tent and gazebo

The weather wasn't that bad but when it did rain we had loads to do from zip wire 3 tokens £1 each, water zorbing 5 tokens (NEW), canoeing, adventure park, lake with its own very small beach (needed more cleaner sand) tree climbing 9 tokens etc

Showers and toilets where spotless and very warm and hot.

Restaurant on site which was very reasonable in price for food and drinks.

Small shop which sold the norm, bread milk sweets etc.

All in all an excellent site whether its windy,sunny,raining loads to do for kids and adults alike.
