We stayed here for one night and it was almost full. As its in the centre of York City its an ideal spot right next to the riverside. The Warden asked us to find a pitch and report back but told us to park facing the road for health and safety. ( Caravan Club sites always have more rules than any other ). The showers etc were well kept and the site was very quiet at night and you don't hear any passing traffic. We asked to stay another day but no room available. Its very hard to book in here due to location. We would try again and spend more time in York.

Just spent two nights at Rowntree Park, all the facilities you would expect from a CC site.

For a winter break it was ideal for me and the wife with the added bonus of location location location. Easy walking distance to all the York must see and does.

Wardens seemed friendly and unobtrusive.

If you fancy a few beers pop to The Swan pub a few minutes stroll from the site, very friendly with a great selection of real ales, dog and children friendly.

Moving off on a tangent, the CC recommend that the site is accessed from the south of York via the A64/ A19 through Fulford, for me travelling from the North East this would have added around 20 miles to the journey.

Our route was A19 to York ring road,picking up the A59 after a couple of roundabouts,this takes you to the city walls at Micklegate where you do a sharp right at the Punchbowl pub and a few hundred yards later you will arrive at your destination.

Very easy route with no tight spots.

We have just enjoyed our maiden voyage in our new motorhome and chose this site for its closeness to York and advertised facilities. We were not disappointed in any way. Facilities very adequate. Plenty of showers. Site nice and wardens very helpful. Close to York itself on the riverside so short walking distance to pubs, shops and restaurants. All we could wish for in a weekend break. Will use this site again for sure.

Just returned home having spent Christmas week here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Location for York is why this site is so popular as a 10 minute walk puts you right in the city centre. Only downside was the wintery weather but that didn't seem to put anyone off as site filled up as Christmas approached. Great park next door with swings etc for the kids. Shops,takeaways et c 5 mins walk out of back gate [you get a key on arrival] and 3 good pubs nearby selling proper beer!. Read reviews regarding wardens being unfriendly and officious but this really wasn't the case, they were doing a great job in very difficult conditions whilst we were there although I did see a chap have to move his caravan after setting up because his van was about 4 foot away from the white marker peg that they ask you line your van up with but they do tell you when you check in so there's no excuse. All in all a nice site in a great location. A tip-follow their directions from the A64 and A19 and you wont have any problems.

Having checked the CC website for space for the last 3 months this site appeared to be permanently fully booked. We turned up on the off chance and 'Site Full' sign was out. Even so popped into the reception and yes no problems can fit you in for 2 nights.

The Site Full board seems to stay out always - but there were spaces and others turned up and go on - why not move the board if there are spaces???

The lady warden on reception was friendly and helpful. The toilets look a bit dated but clean, plenty of hot water in showers but low pressure.

Overall a good site where its best point is it's location - less than 10 minutes into York city centre. At 15.70 for 2 adults it is great value for money.

Reviewer: Wsseaman 58 reviews from this member

The site is opposite the river and easy to find. I was slightly anxious having read other reviews about flooding but even after a whole day of rain the pitches drained well so don't let this put you off. The pitches are generously wide but not very deep and our 7m motorhome just fitted in nicely. They are all hardstanding and separated by hedging. The site is very quiet, although you do get some noise from the park next door but it wasn't intrusive. The park is excellent for children, with a separate play area, tennis courts, fenced skateboard area and football pitch. Further on (out of the park) it opens up and dogs can be let off lead. The wardens weren't overly friendly but were very efficient and yes, they are up and about just after 8am so don't bank on a lie-in! Internet access is an eye-watering 5.00 for 5 hours but this can be used anytime on any caravan club site. There is a locked gate at the rear of the site (you get a key) which gives quick access to a supermarket, various take-aways and bakery. York town centre is an easy ten minute walk and the coastal towns of Filey, Bridlington and Scarborough are only about an hours drive. There is also a designer outlet shop 10 mins drive from York. We are hoping to visit again next year.
