Why stay here ...

Pleasantly landscaped, White Water Park Club Site lies adjacent to the largest white water canoeing and rafting course built to an international standard in Britain. The caravan site provides easy access to all its facilities including a sheltered viewing balcony, a drying and changing room, canoe storage area, shop and cafe. The area is also famous for its International Summer Riverside Festival and its 'Head of Steam' Railway Museum where you can learn about 'The Birth of the Railways'.

Teesside Park is within easy reach of White Water Park Club Site and is a shopper's paradise- with restaurants, multi-screen cinema complex and bowling alley. Birdwatchers, wildlife enthusiasts and walkers will also be spoilt for choice with over 30 miles of coastline a short drive away from the caravan park. There are numerous tiny fishing villages, traditional holiday resorts and dramatic cliffs to experience, with all the fantastic views you might imagine from such attractions. There is a Beefeater within walking distance and just outside the site is the local pub and a fish and chip van that visits most Fridays. Also not to be missed are the cruises available at Castlegate Quay.

This location makes up one of three caravan sites in County Durham, offering plenty of opportunity to experience the best of what the county has to offer.

another wonderful stay

My wife and I recently spent 13 nights on this site which is where I also store my caravan. I am compelled to send this review as we had such a relaxing, enjoyable break despite some wet weather initially. The site is beautifully maintained with lovely floral displays, well kept pitches and excellent amenities. Despite the extra measures which had to be implemented due to COVID, I couldn't fault the cleanliness and management of the facilities. I want to pay particular credit to the wardens and their assistants who could not have been more helpful. They have a friendly, professional approach which should be a lesson to everyone - I cannot praise them enough. Only one small niggle is the WiFi performance that can be sporadic, particularly if the site is full. Nevertheless, this did not detract from our enjoyment. Thanks again to everyone connected with this wonderful site and I look forward to a further stay in July (already booked). Peter & Linda Shields

Great site let down by some members

Been using this site for some years as close to family. We were disappointed to be told on arrival at 12.50 that we had to leave and park up elsewhere until 1.00. Not a problem except the following day we were unable to gain access to the site due to 7 or 8 vans queuing to get in and blocking both lanes. On querying this situation with the same female warden who had insisted we had to leave the site the previous day we were met with a shrug of the shoulders! We love this site but despair at the behaviour of some of the visitors who seem unable to use a toilet brush or cope with the COVID rubber band entry system 😳 Nevertheless we shall return 😂

What a surprise!

Here was me thinking it was more of a 'stopover site' when I booked for 6 nights, so didn't expect too much of the area, but just glad to get our first outing of the year. Site was immaculate as was the facilities, also a friendly greeting from the wardens whenever we crossed paths. Unfortunately the Pizza and chip vans no longer visit, but the Chinese takeaway leaflet in given to me in reception gave a really good choice, excellent prices and delivery to the gate. We walked into Stockton twice alongside the Tees that had a nice centre, cycled west and north along Sustrans routes 1 and 14 and east along route 1, and all from the site with very good cycle paths. Whitewater canoeing at the 'barrage' was open and good to watch as was the walking in the nature reserve, also plenty of off site dog walking available be it short or long. I must mention the friendliness of the local people, nearly always a 'hello' when passing, so all in all an excellent site and definitely not a 'stopover' as I first thought.

Lovely 2 night stay

Enjoyed a 2 night stay at this lovely, quiet well laid out site. Very friendly wardens and facilities very clean and well maintained. Pizza van, with great looking menu in Car park Friday evening, unfortunately could not take advantage of it. River walks along the banks of the river tees easily accessible, enjoyed our walk into Stockton. Teeside shopping park also within walking distance from the site
