We've just come back from a lovely weekend break at the Harrogate Caravan Park. We were greeted on arrival by the friendly wardens who showed us to our pitch. The pitch was spacious, level, well drained and nearby trees provided shelter. I would advise taking hard ground pegs as the pegs didn't want to go in below 3'.

The pot wash was good with hot water on tap. There were plenty of showers and toilets which were always spotlessly clean. The changing area within the shower cubicles has limited space so be advised to take a plastic bag in to hang clothing. The adjustable showers were free and had a plentiful supply of hot water.

The site was within easy walking distance of a large Sainsbury's store but the adjacent Fodder store supplied a fantastic range of high quality groceries for something a bit more special. We would particularly recommend the Fodder sausages and burgers, lovely for the BBQ. The store also had a restaurant serving excellent food. There was a pub a short walk away also serving food but we didn't try it out on this occasion.

We found Harrogate Caravan Park to be an excellent base for anyone wanting to visit Harrogate and the surrounding areas. We will definitely make a return visit.

Harrogate Caravan Park is located on the site of the Great Yorkshire Agricultural Showground just a mile of so outside the town. It has hardstanding for caravans laid out around the central circular roadway, with tent pitchs available around the perimeter fence beyond.

It is a well-tended site with superb, well-maintained amenities centrally located and never too far to stroll to from anyone's plot. Showers are large, free to use and with plenty of hot water.

Although plots are located quite close together, it didn't seem unduly claustrophic. Maybe this was because it was a beautifil warm evening and everyone was in a laid back frame of mind; or whether the nature of the site is such that few people probably holiday there, most (like us) either overnighting on the way to somewhere else, or attending events at the Showground, or just weekend sightseeing in Harrogate.

Out and about, Harrogate is a popular tourist haunt, with lots of coffee shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants, though with prices to match its exclusive status. Likewise, parking in the town is quite expensive, so if you have a free bus pass use it - both to travel in, and to catch the frequent, high-quality Service 36 connecting bus to Leeds. Alternatively, there are lots of cycle trails criss-crossing the site - including a virtually traffic-free route into the town centre. Wetherby and Knaresborough are also a short drive away.

For provisioning, there is a large Sainsburys superstore at the entrance to the Showground, along with an adjacent service station. There is also a small pub restaurant about ten minutes walk across the meadow.

A minor criticism is the elsan/grey water disposal point, which (while undercover) involves hauling the wastemaster or cassette up onto quite a high lip to empty it.

Harrogate Caravan Park is therefore a well-run, conveniently-situated campsite with friendly and helpful wardens, and that is good value (16 per night for hardstanding and ehu), making it an ideal base for either exploring the town or as a stop-over on the great trek from the South to the North along the A1M.

This was our first camping trip, Myself and my daughter stayed here for 1 night. After looking at local campsites this fitted the bill and had very good reviews.

I'm very pleased we chose this site, ideal location, very friendly and helpful staff. Very very clean facilities and all for a very reasonable price

I'll certainly be going back and would recommend the site for any first time campers :-)

A very pleasant level site with good approach roads, within easy reach of the town and on a bus route. Recently reopened with new/refurbished modern toilet block including good showers - kept very clean and smart and with a separate Disabled facility. Hard standing and grass pitches. The site wasn't full but the hot water ran out at the end of one morning. No playground but a safe environment well away from the main road. There is a handy food store and restaurant next door plus a large Sainsburys within walking distance. Excellent location for the Great Yorkshire Show, the International Conference Centre and exploring Nidderdale. The wardens are cheerful, friendly and helpful and make people very welcome with maps, bus timetables, information etc. Will happily return.

Had an excellent stay at Harrogate Caravan Park. The owners gave us a warm welcome the second we arrived. Had pitch 11 which had electric hook up and it was very well kept. The toilets and showers were very clean, Showers were lovely and hot even when they were all being used at the same time. There is a washing machine and dryer, wash up area and the usual waste water/elsan/drinking water points.

All facilities were first rate and I couldn't fault it at all. Next time we are in Harrogate we will definitely be going back to this park.

Also worth noting there is a convenient cafe and organic type shop next door and also a Sainsbury's and a bus into town at the end of the road. Perfectly situated. Well done you guys. Great little caravan park.

A very nice little site which is well laid out. The toilet/shower block are exelent and there was always plenty of hot water. A very large super market a few minutes up the road. We had bad luck with the weather when we were hit with a thunder storm which caused a bit flooding around the tent. The owners of site were great coming out in the rain to see if everyone was alright. Problem was sorted out in no time.
