The site was fairly basic. The showers and toilets were reasonably clean but the shower curtains were covered in mildew and there was no seat to sit on to assist when putting on socks and shoes. No hairdryer. Just felt that a little more thought could have gone in to make the experience a bit more user friendly. There was nowhere to eat on the campsite at the time we were there. We did not know the area and it was only due to some help from other campers that we were directed to a local pub. We were also concerned that if we went out of the campsite it might have been difficult to get back in as there was nobody around to ask after we arrived. Nice place to walk dogs but predominantly used by people who enjoy the fishing I would suggest.

We arrived as a small party of Dads and our teenage kids, from the point we hit the reception to book in the staff were polite, helpful, and even at the end of day were never to put out to help, a gentlman named Bob who I assume owns the site is a great guy, unlike most site wardens he individually greeted his guests and escorted them to their pitches where he was only too willing to advise set up and locations of ammenities, he wizzed up and down on his quad and checked all was well and made time to chat with campers, all I can say is get yourself booked on this site, the staff are fab, the site is fab, there's a great bar with food served all day and even food delivered to your pitch or fishing spot, we had a great time and we thank Bob and all the wonderful staff at Wyreside for making it that way.

Stayed her for one night to visit our Daughter at university. Location for access to Lancaster is excellent, whilst still being in the countryside. The views are beautiful, and the staff very friendly and helpful. Some reviews mention being made to feel like outsiders, as the number of members/season pitch holders clearly outnumbers the one off visitors. That said, we got a very warm welcome from staff and regulars alike. All were keen to chat to us and make us feel welcome. We were very disappointed with our pitch, and would have moved it we were staying any longer. Their website boasts 'grass electric pitches for caravans, campervans and motor homes. ' We were directed to pitch on what I can only describe as a car park. The MAJORITY of the site is covered in hardcore, with green small patches punctuating it at intervals. It's not really safe for children to play on. Some of the residents have even installed their own astro turf. It was a heck of a walk over the hardcore to the facilities. Leave your flip flops at home campers, this is proper walking boot material! That said, the club house was friendly, and basic fare available at reasonable prices. The facilities were clean and well cared for, and the pitch price is about right for the facilities available. The hosts have planned an extensive entertainment programme for the year, but sorry guys, I don't think we will be returning to enjoy it. The hadcore puts us off.

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.
