 First time here and will not be our last.

A great site, very clean and staff are very friendly. Great size pitches.

Limited facilities in these times.

Very tasty pizza van on Saturdays.

Bus stop directly outside of the campsite for link to York.

 3rd time to this site, we were met by a very jolly man who got on his bike and we followed to be shown our pitch,

Adult only side, pitches are fully serviced,

Toilets, showers very clean and heated, oven baked pizza van on a Sat night which are beautiful,

Bus stop outside gate,

Little shop that sells most of your needs.

Cant fault this park.

Will be back.

 We've just returned from this lovely site.

Improvements have been made which look obvious, well done!

This is the 8th time we've been on this site but 1st time since new owners took over. The wardens were pleasant but didn't see a lot of them.

The facilities were open, every other toilet & shower open. Everyone seemed to adhere to the social distancing rules.

I was a bit disappointed that our family couldn't join us for the day, as we usually have a family bbq. There were plenty of family / groups of friends together.

 Lovely spot just outside York and very near to the Designer outlet, the village is a short walk away and the local pub.

We stayed with friends who had a tent and we had a caravan and it was nice to be able to pitch next to each other in the Adult section, ours was hard standing and level and the tent was tucked into the corner next to us which we felt was a bonus being able to camp near each other.

The toilets were busy at early morning but we used our own facilities, our friends said they only had to wait a short while to get a shower, probably due to the fact that not all showers and toilets are open due to corona virus social distancing measures.

A Pizza van arrives on a Saturday evening and is good value for money if you don't wish to cook.

Some lovely walks down by the lock but watch out for the geese and duck poo !

We had a lovely time and will certainly return in the near future.

 Easy access from the Main Rd, large well maintained pitches and nicely laid out with plenty of space.

The owners were really friendly and helpful, the toilet/shower facilities were well maintained and immaculate.

We really enjoyed the short walk to the Lock and the beautiful scenery around.

This was our first caravan trip and we couldn't have asked for a better site,

We most certainly will be returning.

 Nice location, bus stops outside site gates so very handy for trip into York or Selby or to outlet shopping centre. Return adult fare to York £4.40.

Well laid out site good location beside river and lock nice for scenery and walk.

Pitches are hard standing and ours was level. Nice space between pitches, decent on site shop.

Only downsides for me was, 10amp hook up so careful with electric use and toilet shower block was cool (we were there in November) otherwise loved the site and has motorhome service point.

We will return in spring, summer next year to experience the walks and cycle tracks.

 We have been to naburn a few times now and will continue to come back as it's a lovely site.

Plenty of room for the caravan with all the amenities you could want very clean and tidy.

There's a bus stop just outside the site and your in York within 20 minutes or just behind the site is the lock where you can get the boat into York for £13 return and is well worth it, the captain gave us a tour guide as we sailed down the river

The pub in the village serves lovely home cooked food I do recommend the steak and ale pie

All round smashing site.

 Booked on line Tuesday morning for the Wednesday for two nights. Really easy on line system to book.

We know York quite well but didnít know of the Naburn Lock area and it didnít fail to impress.

Site really clean and well laid out. On arrival we were told that we had pitch 56 for our tent and it turned out to be a good choice. A good size area, level, electric and water close by, and easy access to toilet and shower block. We liked the fact the site had a security barrier with key code.

Just a short drive in to York. Walking distance to the Marina and local pub The Blacksmith Arms where we enjoyed an evening meal.

Interesting walk to Naburn Lock and seeing the power of the water flow over the weir. If you do a bit of searching on YouTube you will find videos of how bad the area floods, especially the campsite. Considering what you see it makes you appreciate what a good job the owners do on keeping the site up and running in such a pristine way.

Really enjoyed our 2 nights here especially with the weather being kind to us. Very relaxing as kids had gone back to school and the site was probably a third full with people of a mature age as we are.

Will definitely be back.

 We stayed for 2 nights, weekend, booked by phone, £30 deposit to pay. Well laid out and clean and tidy gardens. Made welcome and given a choice of pitches, we really wanted the adult bit but it was fully booked, they did come and tell us of a cancellation later on but we were too settled by then, good of them to let us know though. We were also given a bus timetable, thereís a good service from right outside the site into York. There is a small site shop for essentials. Noticed some road noise. Some good walks from the site by the river.

We went to the nearest pub for tea, The Blacksmiths Arms, approximately 1/2 mile walk, good choice of beers and the simple food was tasty and well presented.

The site was very busy as youíd expect in school holidays and as we were in the family part expected to see and hear children but not to have them tearing round the site on bikes and setting up football matches on their pitches. Late in the evening a huge jamboree set up opposite us but thankfully that broke up before 11 pm and after that it was quiet.

The compact toilet block got quite busy as expected with that volume of users, it seemed to be cleaned regularly, plenty of places to get water and take rubbish/ recycling, the motorhome greywaste drain is with the Elsan point.

 Had a couple of nights here very nice site. Facilities are spotless and never had to queue to use either the toilets or showers. Easy 10-15 minute walk to village pub.

Nice circular walk from the locks. Bus stops to York- Selby right outside the gate.
