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.

Regular visitors, always a brilliant time

We have been coming here over the last 3 years, every few months or so and are booked in nearly once a month for the next few months! We have never had a problem with noise or the wardens or the ongoing improvements. Yes the wardens are moving stones on a little tractor now and again to upgrade a couple of pitches but they do this for a very brief amount of time on the odd occassion. Yes there are children on this site which perhaphs make a bit of noise, but if you dont want to be around children, feel free to go to an adult only site. Be warned a previous negative reviewer has written 2 unhelpful reviews but just done so twice! We have a 5, 4 and 2 year old and they love the animal or number trails that are put on around site for the tourer explorer. They love the tarmac for cycling, both ours have learnt to ride their bikes here and the 3rd is just starting! The scenery is lovely, the dog walk off site (literally at several gates around site) is amazing and the wardens have always been pleasant and helpful towards us. The pizza van on a Saturday night is ace. I wouldnt class this as a "quiet" site but it is very family orientated so it depends what you are looking for. We find it relaxing (as much as you can with 3 kids!) and peaceful and a way of switching off from everything as there is no phone signal, we dont pay for wifi and we only have a TV for the boys to watch a bit in between racing around doing things outside. There is plenty to do off site too. It might not suit all tastes but we love coming here and will continue to do so!

Friendly Site

This is my 4th or 5th stay at Clumber, was surprised with it being summer holidays how many empty pitches were available. It’s normally a favourite with families. Yes, there was plenty of children being just that, playing football etc at the on-site park. There are also lots of pitches available whereby you can be out of earshot of the park. Theft is becoming quite a problem and I suggest that may be having a bearing on the numbers. Wardens are always super friendly. There was an incident on site resulting in police attending, this was due to some bullying taking place. The facilities are clean and tidy but as with all camp sites, some campers spoil the amenities which is a shame. I love Clumber for the dog walking that is available on your door step, I am going back at New Year. Don’t be put off by the negative remarks, not all sites are suitable for all. Give it a try and see past the boundary of the club site and what’s further afield. Go for a walk to the visitor centre, walk into the woods and follow the trails.

Screaming children friendly site

If you like a noisy site children screaming, dogs barking, parents playing tennis and football at the back of caravans even children playing tennis as well this is the site for you. Wardens very unhelpful they cut the grass at 3.30pm in the afternoon when your trying to relax even dig out pitches as well with a tracker and large digger bucket on the front, its like being on a building site with the added bonus of lots of children screaming.

Great Location - Great Staff ...Happy Campers

Booked in for 1 night decided to stay for 2 nights, however we had run out of dog food the Wardens (The Baldy One and his glamorous assistant) were very kind and gave us enough from their personal stash. The pitches are clearly being updated so not quite sure about the previous reviews! There were children (it’s School holidays) but we did not encounter any noise that was disturbing. The pitches are pretty generous in size. No phone signal was a bonus. Maybe a tad expensive but it does give you access to Clumber Park. Our first but not last visit. Visited August 2019

Clumber park review

Stayed in August 2019. Site not like in the photos, everything a bit tired, pitches worn, toilet blocks need updating and enlarging. Many children around, in central play area and riding bikes continuously around site. Bikes have to be locked in secure building, so site not secure from local thieves. Site staff very good, but sat Navs take you to wrong entrance, no warning in handbook! Pitches rather unkempt and small and close together. Expensive to stay in August despite sites failings.£33/ night for 2 adults. No phone signal at all nearby. One of worst club items ever stayed at in years! Would not revisit!
