I stayed at the campsite with friends in order to go on a weekend long canoeing trip from Ross-on-Wye to Monmouth. I ignored the previous Trip advisor reviews - big mistake - because the location was so good and I'd heard marvellous things about Symonds Yat. When I arrived at the campsite the staff were rude and unpleasant... the directions for where to park and pitch the tent were non-existant. We were told not to make any noise...but this wasn't a case of "not being too loud" - rather don't make any noise at all. I was scared that the sound my tent made when I unzipped it was too loud for the warden's sensitive hearing! I used the toilet and shower block with great reluctance, since it was filthy. I was booked in for two nights but left after the first night and went to a much cleaner and nicer campsite on the other side of the river - called Tennets. It also turned out to be quite a bit cheaper than the Wyedean campsite. On the plus side, the canoeing was great (although some - but not all - of the staff seemed to have taken lessons from the campsite staff in how to be unhelpful and grim-faced!!), the scenery was beautiful and the pubs in Symonds Yat were fab. So go to the area...just don't stay at the Wyedean canoe and adventure centre campsite. There are plenty of other options available and there are lots of other Canoeng and Kayak hire places.
