 Stayed for one night over the bank holiday weekend - the site is compact yet some of the pitches are quite roomy. We booked a non awning pitch and were very happy.

5-10 minutes walk right along the river brings you out in lots of green space, 5-10 minutes walk left brings you out in the city.

The site is in a fantastic location for seeing the city.

Fish and chips from the Fishermanís Wife 5 minutes away were a welcome treat on a rainy evening.

 We had a lovely stay at York Caravan Park, lovely spacious area for our Motorhome all with small hedges in between to give you a bit of privacy.

A fishing lake on site as well. Bus runs every half hour into York which stops right outside.

We will definitely use this park again.

 Very well situated. Excellent facilities and quiet.

Good for walking into York and all the main tourist areas.

Cycle friendly too with dog walks outside.

 One of, if not the, very best sites we have ever visited in the UK.

On the pricey side as a non-member (£36) but from the friendly professional welcome, the pristine showers & WC facilities, pitches & layout,

It is a high quality experience especially being a 5 min walk to the city centre.

 This site is in a fantastic location. As others have said purely functional with as many pitches crammed in as possible, glorified car park really.

We arrived early after travelling in very bad weather, as the site is in central York and traffic can be bad itís difficult to time the journey to arrive exactly on time. Be aware there is no movement at all with the 12 check in time.

Disappointed with the service on site, the wardens were so rude and poorly organised. They desperately need some customer service training. I understand itís a busy site but if customers annoy them just by being there maybe they need to work on a quieter one.

On the plus side the toilet block was clean, this is obviously where their strengths lie. As a fellow Yorkshire man Iím so disappointed that this is the welcome travellers will get when booking in here.

Reviewer: Grumpyoldcamper 5 reviews from this member

 If you are looking for a short break to visit the tourist attractions in central York this site makes a good base. You can leave the car and walk/cycle for miles. It is rather like camping in a glorified car park, however people looking for a more rural setting will, hopefully have the sense to look elsewhere.

Trying to get out of the centre of York to venture further afield takes forever. And if you are thinking of going east on the A64, be prepared for long delays. Manoeuvring a caravan onto some of the pitches can be challenging. (Not all caravanners choose to have motor movers fitted).

The fact that many of the pitches do not follow the more common practise of parking cars on the opposite side of the van to the awning adds to the problems. Units backing onto each other are, at least separated by a low hedge. However, sitting outside, staring at the back of a motor home less than 3m away is not everyoneís cup of tea.

Booking a pitch can also also a problem. Like many Ďpopularí sites, weekends are booked up months in advance so anyone looking for a longer stay has little chance of success. At the time of writing there were no weekend pitches available at all. If you do decide to come here pick your arrival time and day carefully.

Departures have to be no later than 11. 15 to try to avoid congestion on the narrow approach road. But if too many vans arrive at the same time and anyone is trying to go in the opposite direction (there is a public car park next to the site), itís chaos.

Reviewer: Masham 3 reviews from this member

 Great site, all hard standing, almost in the very centre of the city. Pleasant riverside walks adjacent to the site.

Drive over grey waste for motorhomes, but only one, so thereís sometimes a queue for this.

Facilities are excellent, clean and warm and entry by key.

Barrier entry and exit to the site.

Usual exacting caravan club pitching guidance on decent size pitches.

Expensive but then it is almost in the city centre. Difficult to get booked in as people tend to block book ahead for this site.

 We only had four nights here and enjoyed the central location. We approached from the south on the A19 as it is a little better than the other approaches.

Pitches without awning space are small, we had one of the larger ones. Well maintained and great staff.

There are building works next door but it did not bother us, my only concern was when I reported seeing two rats come onto the site from the direction of the river back and headed for the refuse area.

I told the office about this the following day and they did not seemed concerned, replying 'we are monitoring this' There were no signs of poison bait boxes in or around the refuse area. They did not bother me but I do know a lot of ladies who would not like coming across rats on the site.

Toilet block is not new and the amount of space for each shower varies along with the depth of the seat in the shower.

Well worth a visit.

 The best thing about this site is the location. Short walk into York city centre makes it perfect for a city break.

It's not most picturesque site and the pitches are tight, but who goes to York to sit outside their caravan!?

Wardens seemed less friendly than our last visit, but they were working flat out to cope with the Friday influx.
