I heartily concur with everything Sarahjane & Jason said, but would like to add that the shop prices are very reasonable and I saved £12 on the price of a gas heater compared to the Argos price. The site itself is set in beautiful surroundings and is well maintained with excellent amenities. Definitely a site to use again and again!

I was pitched on the rally field which is about 5-10 minutes from the shop and amenity block, depending on age and fitness. I found it very easy to pitch, but would recommend the use of Delta pegs for the guys and plastic pegs for other pegging points though I'm sure pin pegs will be adequate in summer when the soil is drier.

Lovely site set in beautiful surroundings. clean and warm toilet block with hot FREE showers which where used after a muddy mountain biking session at Sherwood pines just 5mins up the road. We stayed in the rally field which was well drained up until our time to leave which was then very wet but fun.

Had use of the hut which a 40th birthday party was held and was warm and very clean. Excellent shop on site which sold loads of camping stuff,food,sweets and ice creams for the kids. Very clean and tidy dog walk and looked like most people bagged and binned.

Will return to this site in the near future and its only 30mins up the road too.

Lovely site which we'll go back to! Toilet block nearest us not open when we where there at first but they got it sorted and open in no time so no trek to the loos in the rain! Good showers and lots of room, free hairdryer was a bonus too. Only negative bit was that the site was badly lit where we were, Riverside hardstanding pitches, which made it awkward and a bit scarey at night for the kids to go to the loo - there seemed to be lots of regular low level lights but none were working.
Nice big pitches although we were there at a very quiet time of year and can imagine it gets very busy in high season. Watch the river if you have kids as its fast flowing but has great wildlife including ducks, geese, owls and woodpeckers.
Shop was very reasonable for camping/caravanning stuff and lots of bargains and essentials till you got to the supermarket although they did say on arrival that it was low stocked at this time of year.
Leisure centre nr Edwinstowe was great - flume slide included with cafe etc, kids loved it. Nearest chippy/kebabs etc a 5 min drive to Old Clipstone. Nearest pub Dog and Duck was a lot more upmarket than we expected but they welcomed us although we felt somewhat underdressed - food gorgeous, kids menu, and very reasonable. All in all a big hit - handy for Sherwood forest visitor centre where you can have a go at archery and see the Major Oak etc - lovely eatery there too!

Very good and clean site, just a word of warning they say they have these digital TV channels, well all I can say is the picture is very poor indeed. Tried using own aerial and I could not get any picture on that at all, you have been warned. The toilets and shower block was very clean indeed and the on site shop was well stocked as well.

After a time consuming journey in the heavy rain we eventually found the site (which is easy to find)
When we booked we were given a grass pitch, on our arrival we found the field to be to soggy so we pulled onto the nearest hard standing pitch (and hoped no one arrived during the night)
found reception very helpful next morning, although we had to move this wasn't a problem as we got a beautiful riverside pitch.
Campsite beautifully kept. Toilets and showers immaculate (a bit chilly in the morning).
The shop on site is little sparse on food essentials but good range of shops in  either direction.
Tried Ma Hubbard's cheep and cheerful ok with three hungry teenagers.
Edwinstowe has some nice shops and the visitor centre well worth a visit.
Hubby and boys fished at the local lakes, which they thoroughly enjoyed( not bad prices).
The caravan parts on site where amazingly cheep or is it because we are ripped off in the south.
we hope to return when the weather improves over all a nice peaceful location.

This site is our week-end get away, as it is only 15 minutes from home, not cheap at £17 per night, but you can see where the money goes, as this site over the years has seen massive improvement, although its always been a good site.
 We will use this for our week-ends away, as well as other close sites to us

Stayed here for a week. It was larger than I imagined and I usually prefer smaller sites. That said this was fairly well organised, the pitch area was large too. The area we were in had a great play area for our kids who were never out of it when we were there. The shop was ok, but not much fresh food, however there was a supermarket nearby. Toilets and showers were ok.

Being my first time camping I was worried about arriving late but we informed them before hand and they said they would leave the pitch instructions on the door.  We arrived and found our instructions on the door and drove around the campsite and as we got to our pitch number, we found we had absolutely loads of room to pitch our tent (and it was a large six man tent) and park our car beside us. The toilet / shower block appeared always clean was was just in the next section of the campsite with only a minute walk (not a problem) the pot wash room was located in the same place and always had very hot water to clean those messy pots and pans.  
There is a Tesco and a Asda nearby which was such a help. My only niggle if you like was that the playground didn't have a swing for a young child (my 3 year old son is unable to walk and can only go on the young children's swings in a playground) but he had a fantastic time camping and I enjoyed our stay here and the peaceful nights we had too, despite the wind and rain but hey that's the UK weather But will definitely come back here.

A lovely relaxing site and picturesque surroundings. We camped in the rally field which was rather open to the elements very windy despite it being 28 degrees outside, which was a bit of a downfall. The toilets and showers were at least 10 minute walk away but were of a high standard, although in fairness to the site this was pointed out when i booked and they advised to take a potty for the kids, which we did!

The best part of the site was definitely located further down along the river which was largely taken up by caravans and smaller tents requiring electric hookup, our vango Diablo 600 would not have fitted on these pitches so be warned if you have a large tent.

The shop was stocked with the basics and cheap camping equipment too. A van also sold hot food a certain times of the day, but we did not try this.

South Forest leisure centre is about a five minute drive away and has a family friendly swimming pool ,although does not come cheap at nearly £14 for 2 adults and 2 children the youngest being only 2 years, but did cool us off at least.

Overall a nice site.

Reviewer: Adie.platts 7 reviews from this member

Decided at teatime on Friday night to take our new caravan away for a trial run, and managed to get a pitch last minute. When we arrived the whole site seemed so welcoming, and the staff were to prove extremely helpful. Hardly saw the kids for the two days we were there, plenty for them to do and explore (bought 2 way radios for this reason!!) Found all of the amenities clean and warm, no complaints. So all in all, being that we live 30 mins away, will definitely be going back to the tranquil surroundings of Sherwood and forgetting the worries of the world!
