Why stay here ...

A great feeling of spaciousness can be found at Clumber Park Club Site, which is settled on 20 acres within a generous 4,000 acres of lush parkland, where you can walk, cycle or ride. The caravan site has a popular play area and enjoys an attractive setting surrounded by woodland. Children will enjoy Clumber Park as it is part of what was once Sherwood Forest and the reminders of the area's most famous resident, Robin Hood are plentiful. Clumber Park was once the estate of the Dukes of Newcastle, and is now owned by the National Trust. The house was demolished in 1938 but there is still evidence of the historic buildings that once stood to be explored. 

The Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre is a mere 10 miles from Clumber Park Club Site and offers many attractions to entertain and educate about this legendary figure. The Major Oak is a must as it is said that he had hidden here, along with his merry men. The Clumber Park food festival, held in the heart of the forest, is a great opportunity to experience culinary delights and sample local beverages. The city of Nottingham is within easy reach of the caravan park.

Lovely and peaceful - would definitely recommend

Stayed here for just one night on 16th November 2019 simply to try out our new touring caravan and we loved it. Good facilities, good sized pitches, easy to get to and well-kept overall - we had no complaints whatsoever. Surrounded by woodland and lovely walks, even the persistent rain over the weekend didn't bother us - we will definitely go back in Spring 2020. There is definitely no mobile phone signal so please be aware of this if you want to stay in touch with anyone!

A bit of a contrast

Stayed here for a couple of nights immediately after a period of heavy rain, with attendant localised flooding. We’ve stayed here a few times, some years back, so knew what there was to see and do. There were only hardstandings on offer in view of the weather, but even so we had difficulty finding a pitch that hadn’t got some degree of standing water. The one toilet block in use was showing it’s age. Some heavy refurb is overdue here, presumably the other one is the same? To be honest, it was all a bit of a contrast with the previous site we’d stayed at on the same trip, no names, but it’s not very far away from here…. Having said that, the wardens do a great job, they can’t help with the weather.

Bit disappointing to be honest

Depends what you want we guess but...…. It's great for peace and quiet but certainly wouldn't want to be there when it's busy. Could only give 1 * for family friendliness as not applicable for us. As you are close to a busyish B class road there will no doubt be a lot of bike activity on site. The location is nice but it is a REALLY good walk down to Clumber Park Visitor attractions.....we walked very fast so it must have been well over 2 miles each way. However the whole place is very worthwhile , just depends on what your expectations are. Maybe CAMC should put an indicator of distance in their description? Unfortunately the weather was not good during our stay but staff tried their best to manage torrential rain.....giving us an offer to move pitch when we became marooned!! We were on the point of leaving anyway but that was departure day and no other reason. The facilities are adequate and that is all that can be said. They are kept clean but really the whole block ( only 1 open as winter timetable ) needs massive refurbishment. However despite the weather we enjoyed our 3 night break ( good value for money midweek ) and it was convenient for home.

Very nice site

We recently spent 3 Very enjoyable nights at the Clumber Park Site which we enjoyed. However, the facilities were disappointing , the gents toilets, showers, etc. Though adequate are in need of updating. Of greater concern was the lack of any heating in the disabled facilities which made life uncomfortable for my wife who is suffering with terminal cancer. We do hope that this is resolved as a matter of urgency.

Scotland Tour October 2019

We stayed here in our 6m Motorhome on a hardstanding pitch on the way up to Scotland just off the A1. Wardens were really helpful as we had a pup tent which we could pitch next to the van. On the way back however despite booking the same it was Halloween week and the site was full. On arrival which was about 2pm there were no hardstanding pitches left and we were told that we had to have grass. The grass was wet and soft and after trying to park we decided it was not worth the risk as the van was likely to sink in the mud. Did get our money back but was told that they do not take bookings for hardstanding ...it seems first come first served....must have been luck first two visits.
