Stayed for a couple of days as we had friends visiting the area. The setting is lovely and has the wow factor but the sound of the motorway was too much.

The toilet/showers were very clean but I was disappointed to have to pay to use the hairdryer as I had brought my own but was unable to plug them in without paying! Expensive site for what you got (prob ok if you fish but we don't and no discount for not fishing) There appeared to be 2 fields for camping and one was ages away from the toilet block.

We were made to feel like outsiders. It is obviously a fishing place and I am sure if you go fishing there, or have your caravan sited there, then you'll not be ignored. We went to the bar to wait for a taxi to the local pub at Dolphinholme (amazing place. Do go) and were told we had to order from the other bar. We went through to the other bar and no one was there. The same person appeared 5 mins later to take our order! How weird.

We did eat breakfast which was ok but rather greasy and again ignored in favour of regulars. Missed the food ordering time by 2 mins and was just handed a takeaway menu for a local pizza place.

Shame. We continue to look for a local campsite were we can become regulars.

We were a group of 4 adults and had a long weekend there, we didn't fish just went to have a get away

Our pitch was on a gentle slope but noticed most of the pitches I saw were on some kinda slope, the ground was well draining and easy enough to peg down into, even though we were close to some trees

The bar and Saturday night entertainment was great and there was even football on, the toilets and showers were cleaned regularly and plenty of loo roll, the only thing was a lack shelf in the shower for toiletries and the water from the shower did wet my shoes even though it was a cubicle with a shower curtain

ALL the staff were friendly and polite and the fresh free range eggs were great

Thinking of looking into going back and having a sample of the fishing tuition

Only giving 6/10 for facilities because we didn't fish and it is a fishery but what I did use was great

Not a site for us. If it wasn't for the fishing lakes we wouldn't have stayed!

M6 sounded as if it ran through the site, building work done on the house on site so a lot of machinery noise all day and the gravel hardstanding area was unappealing.

On a positive note - the lakes are stunning and an oasis amongst the noise, simply beautiful! If we could have stayed on the waters edge, then it would have been heaven. The children's play area looked well equipped (we didn't have children to test them out), the showers were good (according to my hubby) and there were constant ground maintainance to keep the place looking tidy. We didn't use the pub, shop or restaurant, so I can't comment on those.

This is only our experience and other reviews will & do say differently. It's all down to personal tastes.

If fishing is your thing, then this is the place for you.

Stayed here last year for a weekend as me and wife decided to bust out the camping gear again after several years.

Great site facility's, showers and toilets where very clean and plenty of hot water and the on site shop sells all the basics.

It has its own on site pub which is reasonably priced and also sell a great selection of hot food ( love the kebabs by the way ).

Children's play area looks good and well maintained, tent pitches are on a gentle slope but do not cause any problems.

There are nice walks around the fishing lakes and great views of the surrounding area.

All in all we had a great weekend break here and will definitely be returning in the future

Loveley site with great walks around the lakes Good areas for children playing and good facilities. Came to this site as our previous frequented site has new management, price increase and sitting out at night round a small stove fire have been stopped leaving nothing other than to sit in your caravan.

Wyreseide provide holiday type entertainment at night so kids and adults alike have something to do. Felt like we had been on a holiday. A little regimental on the caravan section but we got round this. Close to good tourist areas, Garstang and Lancaster on the doorstep. Will definitely be back.

This was my first camping trip in about 15 years and the first time my two children (6 and 4) have ever been.

We arrived at Wyreside early afternoon on the Friday and after being greeted and welcomed to the site were shown to the upper pitch area as this had the drier ground. The ground was still a little bit soggy but that's hardly surprising after the incessant rain.

It took us a little longer than the 12 mins. pitching time stated on the bag of our new Icarus 500 tent, but we soon had it pitched and were set for the weekend.

The camp-grounds themselves are very well maintained, set in some beautiful scenery and are exceptionally clean, the staff always seemed to be busy cleaning something and they clearly take great pride in their site.

The facilities were spotless, the showers were clean and hot and there seemed to be plenty of them (admittedly, the site was not particularly busy). The staff were very approachable and helpful as well as being very good with the children.

My two young daughters loved the site, they liked walking with us round the lakes; they loved the playground and thought the kids' karaoke on Saturday night was great. Sally made their night!

I cannot fault this site and will definitely be back; I would highly recommend to anyone.
