 This is a very good campsite on the banks of the River Ure. There is plenty to do and even more now that www.Go2h2o.Co.Uk are based there where they offer climbing, kayaking / canoeing and archery.

Toilets and Showers are reasonable and they do their job. It does seem quite strict with regards to arrival and departure times. But nevertheless a gem of a site.

 What a fab site (really shouldn't say that - you will all want to go now!). Very peaceful by the River Ure - we had a Premium Pitch on the Millhouse section with electric hook up. Plenty of space between caravans, good shop on site for essentials, clean toilets/showers (a must!). Not too expensive we had a three night break and enjoyed the surrounding countryside.
Fairly close to Harrogate/Ripon. Fab market on a Sunday at Catterick Race Course (free entry & parking!). We are NT members & managed to get to see Fountain Abbey and there were plenty of other places of interest for all the family.

 Very spacious site with good location by river. The site was full when we stayed, but if you were prepared to go down the far end of the field then you could get loads of space for your tent. There are hedges separating the different areas of the site which creates some privacy. It was therefore very peaceful at night, although if you had been nearer the facilities, then there were quite a lot of large groups. The main toilet/shower block was not really adequate for the numbers staying and there were problems with the boiler when we were there so there was no hot water for a while. However, there is a smaller toilet block near reception which was always quiet and clean with a good hot water supply if you were prepared for quite a walk from your pitch.

 This is just an excellent site. It is set in a beautiful location next to a river that suits for paddling, swimming, boating, canoeing etc., and will keep the family entertained all day in good weather.

The site itself is beautiful, with lovely fields interspersed with trees stretching down the river, as a great access road winds through the middle. There's just loads of space to pitch your tent, including some serviced tent pitches if available.

The toilet and shower facilities are good, although if you pitch right down the bottom you've got a bit of a distance to get to them.

There's a small playground, but really it is not necessary: our kids enjoy the river and exploring the wooded areas far too much to be interested in anything else, and there's space to get your cricket or rounders set out for some family games.

The site has a good little shop with very friendly and helpful managers.

And you're a stone's throw away from Lightwater Valley, the car boot fair at North Stainley on the cricket pitch, Ripon and Masham around the corner, a short 1 mile walk along the river to West Tanfield and there's a superb pub by the river with a wonderful beer garden and great food.

We live only 25 minutes away, and come here time and again for weekend breaks, because although it is a little pricey, it is worth every penny and we have found nowhere that compares to give us an excellent family time.

 What a good site ! Very friendly staff and helpful. Well drained camping area, bearing in mind the wet weather we had before we went. Showers and washing area were fine, quite busy when went.no waiting .Fridge in the info shed which is very welcome when under canvas, telephone , shop with basics , check out the local Masham sausages( I don't do sausages,but have to say they were good.) Great for messing in the river, my daughter loved the site and we will be back again, with a dingy. Very quite on a night after dark. Great for touring the local area. Play park is a sand pit and small slide for toddlers.

 Last minute booking for 2 families with largish tents. They managed to fit us in. Although the site was then full we had loads of space on a perfectly flat site. Kids really enjoyed it (Age 4 - 10) played on bikes , cricket and were able to muck around on a small beach next to the river. Toilet block was excellent and although the site was full plenty of free hot water and no queue for showers. Great weekend.

 Perfect site for visiting surrounding area, not much for children, playpark rubbish. Shower block not big enough when site busy had to queue for a shower!. Staff friendly and helpful. Visit the Staveley Arms in North Stainley  for a great meal and a warm welcome, great chipshop in nearby Masham. Visit Lightwater Valley and the Forbidden Corner - great for kids and adults.

 This is the first time me and my family have been camping and I can say we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The camp site was spot on, toilets and shower block were spotless at all times of the day.  I liked the fact we could pick our own pitch, every one was very friendly and helpful, will definitely visit again!

Reviewer: Chris1980 2 reviews from this member

 This was the first time I camped outside of the lake district, I found the site to be excellent.  A nice private pitch was easy to find on a bank holiday weekend.
The facilities on the site are good although it would be far better if the shop was open all day and served food.
The showers etc were good and clean, although busy.
The only thing I didn't like was the scenery, it was bland and the site its self is in the middle of nowhere.  I am used to the fantastic views from the Scotgate park in cumbria and the views on this site were very dull.
Overall a good site for a short stay, I will try again.

Reviewer: Streets 1 review from this member

 A warm welcoming site with fabulous views over the nearby river Ure. We were kept entertained by the brown trout that could be viewed easily from within the 'van. We found it to be well kept, with warm, clean facilities. Plenty of room - good grassy pitches. Well signposted. As we were there early in the season it wasn't very busy and was also therefore quiet. Just how we like it.
An on site shop supplying essentials as well as a kayaking facility for the water sports enthusiasts.
Children would need to be kept busy with the river and local wildlife spotting as there is not a huge amount on site for them.
However this is a safe and well maintained site, great for watching the bird life on the river. We had a great time.
