Why stay here ...
The Market Rasen Racecourse Camping & Touring Site is set on the edge of the distinctive landscape of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The site is adjacent to the racecourse which is an exciting buzz of activity on a race day and peaceful and relaxing in between races.
Walkers, cyclists, families and dogs are all welcome and greeted by friendly and helpful staff to the caravan park. A perfect location for touring or relaxing with a fantastic new children's play park opened in 2018 and its own 9-hole golf course to challenge golfers of all abilities and a separate dog exercise field.
The historic town of Market Rasen is just one mile away and offers many small shops, pubs, food outlets and a supermarket. Market days are Tuesday and Saturday. The quiet country roads make walking, cycling and driving a pleasure. The site puts you in easy reach of coastal towns, country villages, family activities and many locations associated with Lincolnshire's rich history of war time aviation.
The caravan site has access to bus and train links to Lincoln, Newark, Louth and Grimsby. It is also a great base for walkers with the Viking Way just 2 miles from the site and the deep rich natural landscape of Willingham Woods right next door.
New arrivals/visitors please report to site office before entering site. Turn right off the A631 (Market Rasen - Louth) on the outskirts of Market Rasen at the signpost to Legsby. The Site is on the left in 0.75 mile.

We stayed at this site over 2019 Easter weekend. The site is very open and the pitches are very small. Upon parking on the pitch, and even though I was parked right on the peg, the caravans next to me were uncomfortably close (they were parked right on their pegs too). Once I put up my awning there was no room for me to park my car. I had to leave it right in front of the caravan. There was lots of music noise from other vans and loud talking into the early hours from people drinking outside their vans. Not what you would expect from a club site. There is also some sort of kennels closeby as there was lots of loud dog barking throughout the day and night. The grass was quite long and clearly hadn't been cut for some time. On a good note the toilets and showers were very clean and well maintained. The stand in staff were very pleasant but were clearly not caravaners themselves and weren't aware of the club standards (not their fault). We would not recommend this site and will not be returning.
I have read the other reviews and viewed the pictures of the site off the club website and it was clearly a different place last year. I understand that they do have a staffing issue at the moment and have remapped the pitches. They've squeezed too many pitches in and it isn't as spacious as the photos depict. It would be advantageous if the Caravan and Motorhome Club undertook a spot check of this site.
