Have visited this campsite about 5 times over the last 10 years, and have noted recent comments. We visited on a dry weekend in September and have to say it was idyllic.
As the crowds have clearly left we had a lovely peaceful campsite with a few fellow friendly campers.
I took 4 girls with me, 10 to 12 years old, and they loved it again. I think this is the ideal site to take children, they love the ponds and streams for paddling, the playground works well, and the joy of sitting round a campfire toasting marshmallows makes for a memorable weekend.
As for the wardens i found that as long as you engaged them in some chat and didn't do anything daft then all was fine. The signs in the toilets raise a smile "Only for drying hands" under the hand dryer!
We took the train to Boot and then walked back along the river, via the George pub, just down the road. A treat for real ale fans.
Overall my advice would be best enjoyed with kids, go out of the main season, and make the most of one of the most beautiful locations in the country
