We had a great time at Riverwood Down. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, even coming to our camp to offer a repair kit for our air mattress! The place is dog friendly, our lab had the best time especially swimming in the beautiful strem next to our camp. Water was cool and perfect for hot summer day. Place was... More

Camping along the river in a tent. The kids had a great time, they loved the rapids and swimming in the river. The Sound of the river was very soothing. I love the fact so many people brought their dogs. I love how the resort can accommodate for camping, caravans and cabins. The size of the camping areas are great... More

We stayed 5 nights at Riverwood Downs. Luckily, we missed the big rains, which caused some flooding to the campsite. If we had been there during the rain, I think we would not have had such a good stay as we did, as the cabin we stayed in (cabin 8) ,appears dated with very poor inclusions-the television was so small-no...

Stayed in Park cabin 1, excellent air conditioner, very firm bed, small bathroom, kitchen well equipped, but lounge very old and falling apart. Put a sheet over the lounge so we didn't stick to it. Small TV and take either a DVD player or laptop to play DVD's...the one they offer costs. Take enclosed shoes to go to the river... More

We camped in November and had a large powered site which was close to amenities with the sound of the river in the background. We all had a great time although our kids did miss some of the extra facilities that they get when staying at a caravan park like swings or a jumping pillow. Time on the river was... More

We had booked for 7 nights, packed up after 3. Granted it was the Christmas period and the weather was very ordinary, I still found the experience disappointing. The pluses: beautiful grounds, (mostly) comfortable cabins, a nice pool and very friendly and accommodating staff. The minuses: horribly overpriced accommodation considering how basic the cabins were (tiny fridge, toaster that burnt... More

My family have camped at Riverwood between Christmas and New Years every year for the past 4yrs. This year there has either been a change in management, or a huge cost cutting exercise employed by current management. The campground itself was beautiful, as always, and the extra porta loo in our area was appreciated. Drums no longer supplied in the... More

I was a little cautious after reading some of the negative reviews on here but we honestly had the best, most relaxing camping trip with our puppy and I can't recommend Riverwood Downs enough. It was so lovely to meet so many other dog owners and their friendly dogs..our puppy had the time of her life. The river was gorgeous... More

Stayed in a "Riverside Spa Cabin" the same weekend the last two reviewers have posted however had no issue with the band that played on the Saturday night as the River Cottage and the 4 Spa Cabins are located far away from the camping. We had dinner at the restaurant on the Friday night and enjoyed the pork dish and... More

The following I also sent to the owner and management of Riverwood Downs. Last weekend my husband and I planned a memorable stay to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, memorable stay we had but unfortunately not for the right reasons. As a regular caravan camper I write a log on places we stay and provide feedback and recommendations to fellow... More
