 Friendly welcome, usual facilities, immaculate.

Some pitches quite a slope though most are flat or almost flat.

Great area for walks though weather was very wet so non tried.

Fly Fishing at Kilnsey craggy is nearby.

 The usual high standards are present at Wharfedale Caravan Club Site. Facilities are immaculate and wardens are very welcoming and helpful.

Location is perfect for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Lovely walks along the River Wharfe.

Walk into Grassington takes 40 minutes (mostly pavement walking and up and down hill).

Itís one of those sites we will return to often as there is so much to see in the area.

 Cant Fault this site, reception was very friendly and welcome, plenty of pitches to choose from, level and sloping, whatever we wanted.

We picked a nice level pitch near the dog walk gate pitch 89.

Immaculate toilet block with unisex service toilet. Lots of service points one with dog/cycle wash. Endless walks nearby.

Beautiful Grassington on your doorstep. Great site.

Will be back, can't wait !

 We stayed here previously in August 2020 and my review from then should be in the reviews below, however, I thought I would add a few additional observations from this trip.

When we arrived this year the site had plenty of pitches free so we were able to choose one to suit us, but as we drove around, one thing that we noticed particularly was that a large number of the pitches slope quite significantly from front to back. Most appear to be reasonably level, or only requiring a small amount of levelling from side to side, but the front to back slope on many of them was quite extensive. We even saw a number of Caravans who had had to put several blocks below their front or back corner steadies to enable them to reach the ground! We were fortunate to get a pitch where we didnít need any other equipment to level although our back studies were almost fully extended and the nose of the caravan almost on the ground to find a level.

We took an ordinance survey map with us this time and found some really lovely walks in the area, some start directly from the site, however there are a number of other walks which start from neighbouring villages, about a five to ten minute drive away. Most of these villages have a lay-by for walkers to park up in before they head off up into the fells. If you like circular walks of between seven and 10 miles, you should definitely find plenty to suit here, however we noticed that there seems to be a shortage of circular walks of under 5 miles apart from the standard walk back and forwards to Grassington Village or up and down to the river.

The toilet block was open to use the toilets and wash basins only, the showers were closed, however everything was very well organised with maximum numbers allowed inside at any one time and a band system to ensure that this was adhered to. Everything was very clean and tidy and people seems to be observing social distancing. The Wardens were friendly and helpful on arrival and carefully explained the COVID rules.

As a second visit to the site, we enjoyed this just as much as we enjoyed our first visit, and hopefully we will be back again later this year to try out some more of the Fell walks in the area.

 Easy check-in & new rules explained well,

Clean toilet block/facilities felt completely safe & enjoyed our stay

Will be back to explore further.

We walked from the site to Burnsall for lunch at the Red Lion approx 4 miles easy walk from Campsite, if you donít want to make the return journey check public transport as limited & taxis tend to come from Skipton so charge accordingly.

I wish the caravan club would implement a 2 night minimum stay either Friday & Sat or Sat & Sunday people seem to block book in advance and cancel last minute at the required 72hrs only managed to secure booking less than 24hrs before we departed.

This is not directed at this site but merely an observation of how the club operates which affects popular sites.

 Great site, for walking, which if yo have a dog is very good. Close to Grassington which has a good selection of pubs/ restaurants.

The garage up the road has a Spar attached which is bigger and better stocked than it looks.

 This was our first visit to the Wharfedale CMC site and it definitely wonít be our last. The site is very typical of CMC sites, mostly hard standing with a few grass pitches. Many of the pitches are sloping slightly so you may need levellers but the pitches are a good size.

We didnít use the shower block because of Covid19 so I canít comment on it.

We donít have children so donít pay that much attention to play areas but there was definitely a reasonably sized play park with a couple of picnic tables beside it.

The wardens were very friendly and the site was well organised.

The location of the site is excellent. It is about 8 miles north of Skipton and about 2 miles from Grassington. The walk to Grassington is partly across fields for the first mile which was really nice but the second mile is along a footpath beside the main road which is less interesting! There are also a number of nice walks directly from the site. We only got to explore a couple of these but look forward to trying some more in future.

The site is directly adjacent to a much larger mobile home park with a mix of both holiday and residential park homes. This site has a pub/restaurant and leisure centre in the complex which I believe people staying on the CMC site can use. We had a walk up to have a look at the pub for future reference but didnít use it this time as we are still a bit nervous about Covid19 as we are both classed as vulnerable. It looked pretty good with lots of outdoor seating.

We really enjoyed our short stay and look forward to going back again soon.

 Lovely site, lovely area for walking with great views.

Really friendly wardens.

About 1 and half miles into Grassington but you can cut across if you want to get to the river, it brings you out by Linton Falls.

The only negative I have about the site is that the showers have a very fine spray which when it gets to your body is Luke warm despite having the temp control on full, also a right pain trying to wash shampoo and conditioner out of long hair.

We stay on a lot of CAMC sites and the showers are one of the reasons we choose over independent sites.

Not sure if there is a problem with pressure or they are just trying to save water, if the latter then itís false economy as I had to use my own shower in caravan.

 This is nice site, located about 2 miles from Grassington. The village is lovely and worth visiting.

Excellent hill walking around the site and the local disused quarry is worth exploring.

The Long Ashes complex next door has a great pub and you can also use their spa facilities at an addition price.
