Why stay here ...

Dakota Park caravan site is on the B1192 just outside Coningsby. We are a small 5 van Certificated Location with friendly and helpful staff. Self catering cottage also available adjacent.

We have a pretty site with some stunning sunsets and sunrises.

Just up the road is RAF Coningsby and "The Battle of Britain memorial flight" so we get plenty of action with all types of planes from the old Chipmunks, spitfires, the Dakota and the Lancaster to the up-to-date Typhoons etc. If it's a peaceful quiet site you want then this is not the place, the planes fly regularly during the week and very often a display is put on with the pilots training for the big shows. It can get very exciting especially when they are flying right over your head! We have even built a 10 foot high bank so you can get a better view of the planes.

There are a vast amount of country pubs with home cooked food, cafes, Chinese, Italian and Indian restaurants. We are also very close to Woodhall Spa, Horncastle, Boston and Lincoln for some exciting shopping and site seeing.

We will welcome your dogs as long as they are well behaved and they don't disturb other members. There are some stunning walks with fantastic scenery.

If you love plane spotting then this is the place to come and stay. The planes fly regularly during the week but finish Friday lunch time for the weekends. You get to see all the Typhoons training and the old Battle of Britain planes like the Spitfire, Hurricane, The Dakota and The Lancaster plus lots of visiting aircraft, so this is an exciting place to come but not if its peace and quiet that your looking for, the planes are noisy and the road can be busy at times but the planes and excitement surely make up for it. 

Runway cottage has a lovely bright and sunny open plan kitchen/ lounge with all mod cons, large flat screen t.v, hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a coffee machine. 

A large modern shower room with large shower and constant hot water, toilet, wash hand Basin and fluffy soft towels.

A stunning double bedroom with a comfy double bed and fluffy warm quilt, you can even lay in bed and watch the planes go out to play. There is a day bed, dressing table and a wardrobe.

Outdoor seating area with table and chairs and sun chairs all in a fenced off pretty garden so you can bring your dog and know it is safe. There are some stunning dog walks where you can have your dog off lead without fear of meeting another dog.

You have your own parking spaces.

We are very close to Coningsby, Tattershall, Hornastle, Boston, Lincoln and Woodhall Spa so there are lots of lovely tea rooms, country pubs with home cooked food and lots of local activities places of interest to visit. Close by there is fishing, farm parks, golf and lots more. The Beach is only 40 minutes drive.

Michelle looks forward to welcoming you to her CL.

Great CL for plane spotting.

Dakota Park
Our first time away so not sure what to expect. Michelle was lovely and really helpful. The site is very well maintained and all services were great and clean. Ideal site for plane spotting. Dog walk down a quiet lane very close. Road can be busy but didn't disturb us and much quieter at weekend. One night there were 5 vans but didn't feel crowded. Lovely view over adjacent fields. We will be back!! Hope all CLs are like this!

Great for watching aircraft at Coningsby

Dakota Park

We stayed here three nights at the end of April. The site is clean and tidy and the pitches fairly level. Michelle was welcoming and the site was easy to find. There are no toilets or showers but we use our own so good for us. Dogs are welcome but there is no on-site dog walk and you have to use the verge next to the road for dog walking unless you go further afield. Electric meters are read on arrival and departure so you pay for what you use.  This is not a site for those wishing to find peace and quiet as it is next to a busy road which has traffic from early morning and also due to aircraft noise from Coningsby but this was what we came for and it certainly delivered! We were able to watch spitfire, hurricane, Lancaster and typhoons practising their air displays and it was like have a private performance! Michelle is willing to share her knowledge of what is going on which was great insider info! During the few moments of quiet we watched large deer leaping across the field behind us, listened to birdsong and an owl came to visit close by one evening and hoot at us. We usually seek a more peaceful site but would certainly consider returning to this site again for the aerial entertainment.

not a place for peace and quiet.

Dakota Park
This site is next to coningsby RAF station, the RAF Typhoons fly every day. the landing circuit is over the campsite. i was here 29/03/2013 on the Thursday one of the Typhoon's performed a display part of which was over my head, WOW. You enter the site off A road so traffic noise is a factor, I booked this site for the aircraft so noise wasn't a factor. The site is beautifully kept, the welcome is warm and genuine. Michelle is a font of knowledge about the airfield. Even though there are no toilets or showers, I would give it 10 stars if I could. I had to give a rating for peace and quiet, when the planes wern't taking off and landing, the road was quiet. it was peaceful!!!!!!

Great site for plane watching and surrounding sites

Dakota Park
Michelle made us so welcome. We booked the site for it's location and the spectacle of the typhoons. Which didn't disappoint. Shame we have to score peace and tranquility as it has to be low as that is not why you stay. Lovely large pitch - we were on "Spitfire" . Facilities clean and tidy.

Great site

Dakota Park
Just spent 3 nights at Dakota Park. Absolutely loved it. I booked this site specifically so I could watch the planes close up. I wasn’t disappointed either. Yes it can get very noisy….I’ve never heard of a fighter jet that isn’t noisy…but I knew that was going to be the case when I booked so it didn’t bother me. To be honest you sort of get used to the noise. Watching the Typhoons coming in to land but just touching their wheels on the runway before shooting back up into the sky is a great sight. We also got to see one of the display pilots doing his thing one day. Barrel rolls, super sharp turns, flying upside down…very skilful flying. We had our dog Blue with us and he wasn’t bothered in the least by the sound of the jets. The site itself is a lovely well kept site with each pitch named after different planes. They are all grass standing pitches but well drained. Michelle was a lovely hostess and she should be proud on keeping such a well looked after CL. This was my first visit to Dakota Park but I will definitely be back.
