Reviewer: Medloc 1 review from this member

 The location was tremendous, a choice of sites by the river or away in the field

The ability to have a fire was great

I liked the quiet and it gave me access to some fantastic cycling terrain

The staff were friendly and you could buy provision if you forgot

I would go again when next in area

 Fab site, beautiful location, friendly and helpful staff. We have stayed here a few times and have always enjoyed.

Good clean facilities, you can borrow fire pits, small shop on site. Gorgeous walks direct from the site, for all levels.

Nice walk across a few field to Muker village, where there is a pub, tea room and art/craft shops.

Reviewer: Proudl 1 review from this member

 Fab location, true campsite, great hosts. Highly recommend and will be my go-to campsite. Perfect. Great, local walks.

Muker is a lovely little village, approx a 10 min walk via a path, not by road thankfully, with a shop and a couple of pubs.

 Campsite is open (pre-book only just now) with full Covid measures in place. Lots of space during our midweek stay, though staff said itíd be busy at the weekend. Campsite shop is open.

Toilets open, showers closed (only reason for lower facilities rating). Little White bus appears to be running an on-request service but didn't try it.

Farmers Arms (10 min walk) is open, serving outdoors as far as we could see (again, didnít try it).

Fabulous location. CDP, water points clean and well organised.

Reviewer: Jehpesto 13 reviews from this member

 This is a now rare, it seems, type of campsite: It's peaceful, has plenty of space and is truly dark at night. There is no hook up, but that means there are far more tents, backpackers and people who are really looking to experience the great countryside.

Weather was pretty wet but we still loved it and the owners were really friendly and welcoming. They have a small reception/shop and really good loos, showers (not open atm) and wash up area, also with a hot tap outside so you could fill your own wash up bowl or whatever!

There are currently no disabled facilities, which is a shame and may limit our return visits, but it is on their list!

There is a very good wifi signal, which is great as there is no phone or 4G. Cost £17 for van and 2 adults which is good for the Dales. Also at this time of covid there was hand sanitiser everywhere and very good attention to social distancing measures.

Will definitely return

 Very clean and tidy site. The showers were spotless and clean. Well stocked shop, drying room, fridge freezer and charging points for phones etc although no phone signal for four miles

Great walks, nice village pub - the farmers arms with great food and beers within walking distance.

Great waterfalls nearby

Reviewer: Emily2 1 review from this member

 Absolutely perfect in every way! Being new to camping I was nervous to stay on a farm as I had visions of the facilities being a tap at the edge of a field and being woken up by a sheep with its head in my tent - how wrong I was!

From the picturesque views, to the sparkling clean toilets, the warm showers and clean sink area to the handy and helpful shop full of everything you could need, to the most friendly and helpful staff you could wish for, everything about the site is well thought out and excellent.

Will definitely be visiting again soon. Thank you for a superb stay

 What a little find, this site is well worth a visit. I stayed for a couple of nights with my motorbike and tent. On arrival I was greeted by Louise, after a long days riding a friendly face with a big smile was very welcome.

I found the campsite and all the facilities of a very high standard and everything was provided, even down to washing up liquid. I am already planning my return to ride some of the best motorbike routes in the uk, and will not stay anywhere else.

 We loved everything about this site, and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys spending time in the dales.

From our first point of contact with Louise and throughout our stay, we felt welcomed and we really appreciated the friendly, laid-back approach which you definitely don't get at some sites! As we stayed over the bank holiday weekend, we were warned it may get busy and there could possibly be a wait for the showers on a morning. This didn't bother us anyway, but we didn't find this, and the facilities were always warm and spotless, no matter the time we used them!

There is no electric hook up and no marked pitches, but that is exactly the reason everyone we spoke to had chosen Usha Gap! There is WiFi should you need it, and may be handy as we had no phone signal but for us this was definitely more of a positive than a negative!

The site is situated in a stunning location, one smaller field next to a stream and a larger field over the road on the same side as the facilities. We parked close to the stream and it was wonderful to hear nature's chorus as we fell asleep at night and woke in the morning. The site is between two small villages (Muker and Thwaite) which are both less than a mile away if you fancy a meal or a beer out. If you prefer to stay on-site, you can hire a wood burner and buy logs from the farm shop. They also sell bacon sarnies on a morning!

We had a great stay at Usha Gap and can't wait to return to this site!
