 Had a two day break with my 13 year old son on this campsite. The site is basic, clean and quiet, just how we like it, but I thought the £12 a night was a bit steep for a two man tent and a added 80p for a 4min shower was a bit much, but your paying for the location which is fantastic. Malham cove on your door step and gordale scar a short walk away, and if you are up to it the climb out of the gorge is a must. There is two local pubs, a outdoor shop and a small general shop just a few minutes walk down the road. This area is a must to visit, but I hope this campsite doesn't price its self out off the market. ( cheaper in the lakes )

 Very good site been here a dozen times. The site is split into 2, one for the tent and car and on the other just tents.
Very good prices too, its the best campsite in malham. Toilets and showers very clean and tidy. Owners Mr and Mrs Moon very friendly.
Only a 5 mins walk to the village centre plus other good walks.

 8 of us stayed here for the half term week. It is a great base for the fabulous walks in the area, and the four children we had with us enjoyed their time there very much. The facilities are basic, but adequate. There are many signs around the campsite, as previously stated on the review.
Most of which are repeated - the one I found the most amusing was about buying your shower tokens before a certain time(I think it was 5pm)??! The showers (of which there are 2 of, were fairly clean, but very expensive for a 4 minute shower!) 
All in all, we had a very relaxing time and enjoyed a fabulous meal at the Lister Arms, as well as having a well deserved pint of Black Sheep after our walk to Janet's Foss and completing the Malham Safari with the children.

 Stayed for three nights the weekend after Easter. The weather was perfect. Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are unique examples of the finest Yorkshire scenery. The camp site is right in the middle of it. We parked the car on Friday morning and did not move it until Monday afternoon.  
A large, slightly sloping grassy field divided in two. One half for tents only, cars in the car park and the other for tents and cars together. A good idea. Toilets and showers are basic but clean.  Free hot water for washing up and in the wash basins. 70p token a little steep for the showers but four minutes is long enough for a good shower. Farmer and his wife easy to chat with. Late on Sunday there were only two tents left on the site and the Farmer actually asked us if we minded him cutting the grass around our tent!  There are lots of hand written A4 laminated signs about but no more than anywhere else. If we were all the considerate campers that we claim to be then there would be a few less.  Malham is 5 minutes walk down the road and both Pubs sell good food and beer. I class this as a real campers campsite and if you have been camping for forty years like me then you will know what I mean.

 We stayed just one night at this campsite and it was really impressed with it.  The field is fairly big to pitch plenty of tents and the toilets & showers are right nearby - these were fairly basic but okay for a short-term stay.  There are 2 pubs within walking distance - literally a short 5 minute walk away (always an added bonus).  The Buck was by far the better one - the food was really tasty and large portions.  The only thing I wasn't keen on was the walk back to the site at night as it was pitch black and there are no street lights or anything, apart from that I found it an enjoyable site to visit and would definitely go back.

 I had the pleasure of staying at this camp site in October; although the web site says it's not open to camper vans, that's only because of the lack of electric hook-up; if all you need works on gas or battery, it's not a problem.

Don't be put off by the apparently unwelcoming nature of the place; there are fierce notices posted EVERYwhere, a more comprehensive array of do's and don'ts (mostly don'ts) you'd be unlikely to find anywhere else outside Sellafield. My personal favourites were the twin signs forbidding us from touching or throwing stones into a large mound of slowly rotting vegetables stationed near the shower block. A hard impulse to resist, but I managed somehow. The showers themselves are fine, but the lights switch off when the 70p token runs out; no allowance there for getting dressed too (that's extra, unless of course you manage to take a shower in daylight).

A word about Malham itself : any village that boasts a pub selling Real Ale is worth visiting for that reason alone, in my view. Here there are, splendidly, TWO pubs offering that vital service; of these, the Buck has undoubtedly the better food, and a splendid Malt Whisky selection to boot.

 Stayed for two nights, facilities basic but adequate. Surroundings perfect. If like us you are looking for peace and quiet then go during the week, lots of children at weekends. Malham is a dog owners delight,the nearby pubs both accept pets which made the evenings very enjoyable. I would thoroughly recommend this site.

Reviewer: Debbie+Steve 1 review from this member

 We have just camped for four nights over the Bank Holiday weekend. We arrived on Thursday night but by Friday teatime the campsite was full although they still accept hikers. For two adults and a german shepherd and it cost £10.50 each night. Showers are 70p per token and last approx 5 mins. The toilets, showers and wash up areas are very basic with a lot of cobwebs and spiders! But they served their purpose, were reasonably clean and always had loo roll available. It is a very picturesque campsite ideally situated for walking and around the corner from Malham Cove. Also nearby is Janet's Foss waterfall and Gordale Scar both worth a visit and take your camera. The campsite is also a 5 minute walk to two very good pubs. The Buck Inn was our favourite and pulled an excellent pint of Old Peculiar and welcomed our muddy dog in the Hikers Bar. We usually finished up there after a long walk with a pint and a large plate of homemade meat pie and chips which we had twice it is so good! There is also a walking shop, general shop selling papers and sweets and a good cafe for breakfast. The only downside was there was a lot of wasps around our tent. We did pitch near the stream but the wasps were an annoyance. And there was a lot of children but it was the Bank Holiday! Overall we would certainly recommend this campsite and will return again soon.

 Small 'no frills' campsite in attractive location on edge of Malham village. Good value for money - £10.50 per pitch per night for a small dome tent for 2 people plus 70p tokens for showers (queues possible). - 10 minutes walk from Malham Cove - 5 minutes to village centre which has two good pubs and a cafe serving wholesome food. Excellent base for walking around Malham. Would return for a short stay

 Stayed here for the weekend quite a few of us. The lady wasn't very helpful when we first arrived and although we had booked to all be together it turned out to be a free for all as far as pitching went no marked areas luckly we managed to all get together. The site has stunning views of the cove but isn't the most even site i've ever stayed on. The shower tokens have to be the most expensive i've ever known at 70 pence a go I needed 1 for a shower 1 to dry my hair and 1 to straighten it so not cheep! The facilitys although clean where basic all in all I would probably try somewhere else next time.
