What a great couple of nights spent here. As a stop over to break up a long journey home, we all decided to stay an extra night. The site is located next to the River Ouse and has great facilities on offer, the toilets, showers, washing up areas and site were very clean. The little hut next to river selling... More

Campsite just as we expected, good hard standing pitches,clean toilets and shower and not a big site. Owner and wardens very friendly and helpful. My partner was taken ill and admitted to hospital and the care and attention I received from the owner and warden was incredible. I could not have asked for a better site for my partner to... More

We booked to stay for 1 night camping for 4 adults. The pitch and toilets etc were brilliant as normal but the new price system is a joke. When we stayed for a full weekend in July there was 2 adults and 3 children we paid £45 which I thought was reasonable for peak season but there have now gone... More

Stayed here for two nights in our campervan with our two children (aged 4 & 7) as it seemed convenient for York. Friendly welcome on arrival, facilities clean and adequate and there is also a small play area for the kids. Bishopthorpe has a small supermarket and three decent pubs all within ten minutes walk from the site. Bus into... More
