We visited Riverside Campsite for 8 days in July 2015. The site was busy, however there was plenty room for everyone, and we never felt crowded. Neil and his wife that run the site were extremely welcoming, and couldn't do enough for us.

The site itself is set in a lovely location, the end of the caravan park borders a lovely big park, complete with children's play park, bowling green and bandstand. The river runs the whole length of the park, and there are several paths round it. The park is located only a few minute's walk from a very reasonable and well stocked store, and the town is only a few minutes in the other direction. There are swimming baths located within walking distance of the park, and a few places to eat. Within easy driving distance are several attractions, including Mother Shipton's Cave and Lightwater Valley theme park.

Riverside is spotlessly clean, the owners take care and pride in their site, and make their vistors feel like valued friends. The toilet blocks were kept very clean, as were the shower rooms, and there was plenty of hot water available. The site does not have a games room or similar, however free wifi is available for guests as long as they are near the reception area, and dish washing facilities, and a very cheap laundry are provided for use.

The only negative is that I am told that the site is quite low voltage - we did not have any problems ourselves, but it did take a while to charge phones etc, and my brother couldn't use his electric grill.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site to anyone visiting the area, and will personally go out of my way to visit here again as soon as I can.

Just returned from this lovely little site. The owners are very friendly, facilities extremely clean. My only niggle is showers were extremely hot. It is very close to the little town with its array of small shops. There are some pleasant walks from the site in all directions. We found a lovely italian restaurant, Ollys, which was very nice, lovely food and atmosphere. We will certainly book in at this site again. Keep up the good work.

We had a lovely few nights here. Welcomed by possibly the friendliest warden we've seen in our first year of campervanning.

When we talked about walks in the area he even lent us his own copy of a book of walks even though they also had books on sale.

The site was literally only steps from Pately Bridge High Street and its various pubs, shops and cafes.

The river runs right next to the site and there are superb walks around the area.

The showers etc were modern and clean together with a good washing up area.

Buses also go through the town(and also run quite late) so it would be a great base to visit other places including Harrogate and Ripon.

In conclusion we'd definitely return to this site, preferably for longer than this time.

A very nice tidy site. Wardens are friendly and helpful, Site has many hard standings and is flat throughout the pitching area. The river Nidd runs beside the site with a path alongside. Also adjoining the site is a playfield and playground with bandstand and bowling green. The village with numerous shops is a gentle 5 minute stroll along the riverside path.

The toilets/showers are up 12 steps and are dated but very clean, a disabled toilet and shower is a ground level up a slight slope, washing up and laundry facilities are also at this level. An hourly bus service to Harrogate is in the nearby village with extra bus service to other places are available on Sundays and bank holidays. There are lots of walks around the area which is very scenic.

One downside is the road noise from the road running along the top of the site. Care should be taken in choosing a route to this site to avoid the long narrow twisting downhill road from the west.

We have stayed on three separate occasions at this site on a whim because it is only 20 mins from home!

The managers are always friendly and helpful and run a tight ship. Some comments on here say it is a bit 'formal' and I guess it is because units are placed carefully to maximise the space available. Bear in mind that next door is the municipal park with full size footsie pitch, bowling green, a huuuuuge children's play park and delightful riverside walks. So if you get your kicks from 'enjoying' your kids cycling in and out of caravans and clattering their frisbee against your car, take them next door!

Great couple of pubs just 3 mins away and a fab Indian restaurant and a takeaway across the road plus a Spar that stays open until 10.

However, just 20 min drive into Ripon and there is a great choice of eateries, whether pub grub, French cuisine, Italian, Thai, Indian and that's just on Kirkgate near the beautiful Cathedral (where Lewis Carroll got inspiration for Alice in Wonderland). Definitely worth a visit.

Been visiting this site for lots of years through an uncle of mine and decided to visit again in 2011 as I have a family of mine own now and only fond memories of the place. Well its lost nothing of its charm and beauty, what a great little site loved our couple of stays over the last few years again. Very clean and friendly, will always go back as lots to do around local area. Village is beautiful and some great fishing in the river nidd that runs adjacent to the site for fishing enthusiasts.
