*Family-friendly site within the grounds of Yorkshire Wildlife Park
*Easy access from the M18; discounted entry to the wildlife park
*Bar in the Mess Tent, Camp Lion shop and Oasis Kids Play Area

Heres the chance for the whole family to go completely wild… in the nicest possible way of course. Now you and the kids can stay overnight at Camp Lion at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, the ‘wildest family-friendly campsite in South Yorkshire, and wake up to birdsong and the truly unforgettable sound of African lions roaring…

Come along to Camp Lion and you`ll be staying in a spacious grass meadow within the grounds of Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Booking a stay entitles you to exclusive discounted multi-day entry to the park, and additional discounted days can be added during your stay - please just ask at the Camp Lion office.

Even after the park closes for the day, you can look forward to organised games and evening activities under the cover of Camp Lion Lodge Mess Tent, where theres a licensed bar and snacks on offer too.

Available Pitch Types
*Tent/Touring/Motorhome non-electric grass pitches x 78
*Bell Tents (Sleeping 2-4) x 20

Modern toilet and hot shower facilities. A dedicated pot wash area for dish washing is also available.

Site facilities also include a breakfast den, access to the Oasis Kids Outdoor Play Area and Camp Lion Shop, where you can pick up anything vital that got left behind at home.

There`s also plenty of space to let the kids have a good run around (and hopefully tire themselves out ready for a good night`s sleep…)

Camp Lion is a doddle to get to as well, being just five minutes drive from Junction 3 of the M18 and 20 minutes from the centre of Doncaster.

Nearby Attractions

So what awaits you when you stay at Yorkshire Wildlife Park? Well, for a start your stay includes exclusive evening use of the Oasis Play Area and the Masai Pizza House at Giraffes - the latter is a dead cert for happy family dining with the kids.

Theres loads more to do as well: encounter red pandas from the Himalayas, hyenas from Ethiopia and seals frolicking in the water at Point Lobos. Or how about booking polar bear experiences or going walkabout with wallabies?

With all this excitement, its highly unlikely that youll be able to persuade the family away from the animals, but Yorkshire does have many other excellent attractions, including alfresco exhibitions at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (45 minutes drive) and high-octane rides at Gullivers Valley Theme Park (25 minutes). Most kids also love the chance to mess about and get dirty on tractors and bulldozers at Diggerland Yorkshire (40 minutes).
