We don't usually use large campsites but circumstaces (other prebooked site waterlogged) brought us here for our first weekend away of the year and we were delighted with the site, facilities, the owners/staff and the nearby village, all of which far exceeded our expectations of a large site. Well worth the money.

Just spent a week here at Riverside. Toilets spotless, showers spotless, staff could not be more helpful. Would definitely visit again and would recommend this site to anybody. Thanks again Riverside staff for helping us have a great holiday. If I may make a suggestion maybe for future investment a swimming pool would be a great advantage to the site but that's a personnel preference and not a criticism.

Just returned from a fantastic break at Riverside High Bentham. The staff could not have been more helpful adjusting our booking and providing excellent service. The campsite is also linked to the local golf club with very reasonable rates and half price offer for campers. The site was immaculate, lovely riverside location and beautiful walking in the locality.

We will most definitely be visiting again very soon. Special thanks to the owner for the communication before booking, advice on golf and providing excellent info.

Stayed here for two nights late Sept 2012.

As we were staying with friends who we'd never caravanned with before - them in a huge Bailey Senator us in a little dinky old Elddis - we opted to go nextdoor to them and so on a fully serviced pitch - with tv aerial, fresh and waste water on hard standing tarmacked / gravel pitch. We bought the bits to become 'fully serviced' and loved it! No filling up water or being concerned if the wastemaster was full, bliss.

It's a nice, well organised site. Not normally what we'd go for (we're fans of farm / CL / CS sites that are 10 a night) but nice nonetheless. Big rest area when you arrive. Lovely welcoming informative staff.

Pitches were big enough, with plenty of room, for car van and awning. No views really to speak of, other than other vans, and a fair few statics to drive through before the touring pitches, but very well kept grounds, if a bit steep speed bumps.

Shower block was awesome, with an aircraft departure lounge feeling, with piped music! Plenty of room, clean, tidy etc.

Nothing to complain about really, apart from huge list or rules and regs on back of welcome leaflet.

We also struggled to get a signal on SKY and ended up bouncing the signal off our neighbours van (!) (leads for the sites aerial supply can be hired).

Good for kids as playground, and safe speed limit respected.

Nice walk into village (good 10 mins) and we went to Horse and Farrier pub both nights (great place, lovely cosy feel, kid friendly, decent beer, great welcoming staff).

Stayed here for a few days as it was in striking distance to take kids to Kendal, Windermere and Blackpool.

All in all I was impressed with this site. Friendly staff and in a nice setting. Great play park for kids. We asked for a pitch close to the park and were accommodated.

However the only down side was another caravan was place right in front of us which prevented us from keeping an eye on the youngsters.

Its probably worth paying the extra fore the fully serviced hard standing pitches if you'd prefer not to have your space closed in a bit.

Bentham is a nice village with a co-op and bakers and a few pubs. Railway station is also close by.

Toilet block and showers are excellent with family shower rooms, ideal if you have young children. TV points worked well on the EHU pitches.

I'd certainly use the site again if I was in the north of the Yorkshire Dales.

Had seen this site when trawling though places to visit and then a local radio station had a 2nights for 1 offer so we took took advantage of it(otherwise we thought it was quite expensive for what we needed)!

The site was easy to get to off the M6, nice big arrival area and lovely level hardstanding pitches. They take a 10 deposit for the shower / toilet block key but it is immaculate!

There's a small shop on site with all your essentials but its only a short walk up to the village for bigger shops and pubs etc.

OH found the on site fishing good, with sheltered pegs. But interestingly no maggots allowed?

Looked like there was a good play area for the kids although we had no need to use it!

Lovely walks along the riverside but watch out for young livestock as they were quite frisky!

We look forward to returning soon!
