We were booked into the campsite at Symonds Yat East originally but on arrival at the campsite (more like a car park) went accross the river and ended up staying at Symonds Yat West (riverwyecamping.co.uk). Its right by the river but its not too close to the family field so you don't have to watch the kids every second. Facilities are fine - bit basic - just a couple showers and toilets - but never had to wait, and a small kitchen area for washing up and a freezer which you're free to use for your ice packs.
Originally we didn't want to stay here because of the fairground and amusement arcade next to campsite but it didn't cause us any problems - it all shuts about 6pm. There's a pub and a cafe too next door but we didn't use either. You can also book can canoeing at the campsite we didn't as our youngest wasn't old enough, so we went on a boat trip instead and that was good.
The staff at the campsite were all very friendly especially Len the carpark attendant - if it hadn't have been for him we would never have seen the Servern Boar - Thanks Len
Will definately go back soon.
