The site is off the main A38 and will signposted from this road. Located in beautiful grounds which are well looked after, all the pitches are flat.

The welcome I received was ok, not overly friendly nor unfriendly, and administration was done quickly.

Pitch size was ok, but if I had brought my Montana 6 it wouldn't have fitted, but then again I didn't specify I was in a large tent when booking. It rained heavily while I was here and I didn't see any flooding or pitches which hadn't drained well.

There is a club house which was closed but I see previous reviews seem positive.

There are two shower blocks. The one nearest the entrance has 3 or 4 showers all of which have a weak pressure and you can't adjust the temperature which is a pain as I found the water way to hot. The other block in the middle has higher pressure showers and again you can't adjust the too hot, imo, temperature. Both blocks are a little tired but perfectly ok.

Dish washing facilities were fine with hot water available all the time.

The campsite is on an approach path for an airport and so far I have a low flying helicopter at 7am and a largish jet at 7.30am, so have no choice but to be awake (grrr).

Would I come again: yes

We stayed here whilst visiting Plymouth as it is a convenient site for the town. The site is located beyond a retail / industrial site in a pleasant area of woodland.
Not overly friendly and I would describe the site as tired - facilities in need of attention: shower cubicles inadequate although clean. We were rushed off our pitch on the morning of departure because they wanted to fell a tree which made me feel harassed. However I expect it would be a lovely site for families in the summer when the pool and facilities are open.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at riverside camp site. It is set in lovely surroundings considering its location.

Very easy to get into plymouth which there is plenty to see and do.

Showers and toilets were always clean, plenty of hot water.

The grounds were always tidy and staff were very friendly.

Children enjoyed the park and the swimming pool was a great hit.

Would definitely go back again.

Just returned from a week's stay at Riverside and were sadly disappointed.

There was no dog exercising area even though I had rung prior to booking our holiday to check that there was. Dogs must be exercised offsite.

After arriving at lunchtime we were surprised to find the camp shop didn't even sell bread so wouldn't recommend arriving without a trip to nearby Sainsburys.

We were appalled to find only 3 fire extinguishers on site that were not condemned!

The play area was fine for our 6 year old but frankly unusable for our 2 year old and also not fully fenced off even though situated alongside the entrance road to the site.

The swimming pool was one of the main selling points of the site and we were unhappy to find the main pool was icy cold and not filtered. After questioning staff we were told first time that it was on and we couldn't expect it to be hot. When we asked a second time we were told that they had run out of gas for the pool but it was now sorted. The pool was still not working when we left.

Their claims to being a 'quiet, secluded site' were laughable as the nights were backed by noise from the road, rail and airport.

Showers and toilets were basic but clean. Would recommend they invest in better bins as every morning we were greeted by rubbish strewn all over toilet block area by animals/birds.

Reviewer: Markandjacob 2 reviews from this member

This was mine and jacobs first proper camping experience. We had to go to Plymouth to pick up a new car so decided to lug the tent down on the train. Picked up the car and stumbled upon this site. We arrived in rain, reception staff were very friendly and within a few minutes we had our pitch (21 for the night) which was level and under a tree. The site is tranquil and had a friendly feel. The shower block was basic and could probably do with modernising but the showers were warm and reasonably clean.

We popped in to Plymouth and had the best faggots,chips and peas known to man! (Barbican fish bar.Try it!) we returned to the site and jacob went to the games room while I had a beer. There was Bingo going on which seemed fun and everyone was having a good time. The staff were friendly and bar prices good. We were going to stay another night but, when I returned from the shower in the morning, the rain was so bad the tent began to leak! So we decided to pack up.

Overall, for a first experience albeit just one night, we had a good time and if I were down that way again I would go back.

A very well kept site with level pitches and good shelter for the tents.

Has an outside play area for the kids as well as an indoor room. TV room restaurant and bar. Don't expect gourmet but prices reflect this and are very reasonable. A great pool area although advertised as heated it was freezing!

The shower block was ok but showers never really made it to hot. Very good washing up and Laundry area.

With a big supermarket a 5 minute drive this site is well worth it to explore Plymouth and surrounding countryside. Owner has embarked upon an ambitious chalet building scheme so half the site seems lost to tents and vans but cannot knock the half that is left at all.

Kids loved it and we would definitely return.
