I used this place when I took part in the 2016 outlaw. It has great facilities, a mostly weed free lake which made is great for swimming, and really helpful staff. The sports centre has generous parking, although this was slightly let down by the new policy of charging £5 per car to park during the outlaw. Thoroughly recommended!

We had the water pretty much to ourselves having booked 4 rafts so had some good laughs at the others and ourselves! The guide you get in your raft who steers the raft snd gives... More

We had a fantastic time at the white water rafting course at NWSC Nottingham. 2 hours of adrenalin fueled fun. The whole event was brilliantly captured on camera by Alex from Wilkinson photography. The pictures really show the action and the sequence shots of Tim falling in were fantastic. Alex put together over 60 shots of our trip which make... More

Absolutely fantastic event, really well organised. Great facilities and a family day out. We camped on site- very relaxed and cheap at £17 per night, no fixed pitches or extra charges for children, pets, gazebo or awning. Would stay again just for Water Sport Centre facilities. Campsite could do with more showers but it was very busy due to the... More

Went tubing and stand up paddle boarding afterwards both were great fun. Was laughing constantly all afternoon. Everyone there was really friendly, and the pics from tubing are hilarious! Thank you! :-)

Such an adrenaline rush, I felt scared but safe at the same time. So much fun and good to do with small or large groups, give it a go

I've been wakeboarding on the cable here twice now - both times, the staff were amazingly friendly and willing to give you tips for making it around the lake. It's exhilarating, skilful and great fun. I strongly recommend the student sessions (Wednesdays or Saturday before 12 noon) - fantastic value for money.

Nice simple campsite with excellent main road access from the A52. Level enough pitches with lots of manoeuvring space. Shower toilet block is clean enough, bit weird having a combination lock on the door! Shop is very tiny. Access to Water Sports centre is unbeatable, directly across the road. Skytrail is good fun for all the family, nice walks around... More
