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.

My wife and I have just spent a lovely week at riverside and thought it was a very nice site with good facilities.

The park and ride is only about a ten to fifteen minute walk away and if fine then a short cut using the riverside path is recommended with the possibility of spotting the Kingfisher flying by as we did on a couple of occasions.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the meals in the restaurant were excellent, plentiful and very reasonably priced.

Will definitely visit again.

Stayed here for 7 nights and had a great time. The pitch was just a little bit bigger than the tent but allowed the car to be parked next to the tent.

The toilets were clean but the showers had no temperature control and the sinks were scalding hot.

The play area for the kids kept them amused and mostly in the shade with the trees. The swimming pool was heated but not much.

My only complaint about the pool area was the dirt around the pool. This was due to people being allowed in the area with their shoes dragging dirt in. When you were coming out of the pool your feet were filthy. A small foot pool and shoe racks would have solved this problem.

Also kids were cycling around the pool adding to the problem. To be fair to the owners the pool isn't supervised, intending parents to do the supervision but this doesn't seem to work as kids were there unsupervised.

Go into the Barbican in Plymouth and get the ferry to Cawsand in Cornwall for the day. Its a cheep day out and a nice wee boat ride.
