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.

Great Little Site

White Water Park Caravan Club Site
First time we have visited this site and found it completely by accident as wanted something near to us at short notice. The site is incredibly easy to get to and is surrounded by really lovely walks / cycle paths. There is a great pub within walking distance which is dog friendly and plenty of supermarkets/shops nearby. We were booked on a service pitch but to be honest, all the pitches were a very generous size. Everything was always clean and tidy (the toilets/showerblock were exceptional) and the staff were, as always, friendly and helpful. A magical element of the site are all the lights and decorations which we discovered on an evening walk with the dogs - children (and adults) will absolutely love these. The only negative (and this is no fault of the site and may not bother some people) is you could not access TV or radio during our stay as a nearby mast had recently met with an accident. We weren't informed about this when booking in and wasted £12 purchasing a week's worth of internet which we then couldn't use on our TV - it would have been useful to have been informed about this when booking in to save us this bit of cash! We were glad we had plenty of games to play which had been stored in the caravan for some time and it was actually quite nice to sit in the awning, drinking wine, munching snacks and beating hubby at ludo and dominoes :) He did whop me at draughts however :(

Lovely site but plan bike rides with care.

White Water Park Caravan Club Site
This is an excellent site, easy to find and with immediate access onto cycle paths. The staff and facilities were superb and I loved the magical fairy lights behind the toilet block-such a thoughtful touch. I cannot fault the site itself and would highly recommend. However, as cyclists, we did find that, once we were a few miles away from the site, the paths were often poorly maintained and sometimes covered in broken glass or even fenced off completely. We found that by cycling to nearby Thornaby Station, we could take the train beyond the rougher paths and pick up some glorious routes such as Redcar to Saltburn. But the short ride recommended on the site's website is lovely although, at the time of writing, the transporter bridge is closed so you have to turn round again from there! But well worth seeing anyway.

White Water Park Caravan Club Site
We have stayed at this site many times as we have family in the area. It never fails to impress us how immaculate the toilet and shower facilities are on this site and how pleasant the landscaping etc is around the site. It is a great site for families as it is within walking distance to two retail parks. Teeside Park has a good range of shops, restaurants and a cinema. Portrack Retail Park has an Asda Superstore , the Range but also a Soft Play, Click and Climb and Jump 360. Saltburn Beach is about 30 mins drive away, where there are facilities for surfing lessons and you can hire Beach Huts for the day (£40-50).Hartlepool Historic Quay is well worth a visit. There are several links to James Cook in the area....Preston Park and Stewart’s Park....both are lovely Park areas. Wynnard Country Park is also close by with a disused railway track for walking and a nice play area for children. York is about an hour’s drive away. Roseberry Topping is a good place for walkers....you are close to North Yorkshire and all it’s beauty.Newcastle, South Shields are all within reach by car 45-60 minute journey. Plenty to see and do. Well worth a visit.

Great stay

White Water Park Caravan Club Site
This site is excellent. Peaceful, clean and well maintained. This is a site we visit regularly and it never disappoints. The only problem we found, on this visit, was the checking in. We fully understand the Covid procedure regarding not being able to get on site until 1pm at the earliest. When we arrived at around 12.45pm we were asked to park opposite the site in car park designed like a snake. We thought that if everyone parked up, in a queue, this would mean that the first in the queue would be booked in first, and so on so forth. Unfortunately this did not happen. When the site opened at 1pm for arrivals, we presumed that we would be called, in order of parking, and booked in, but this did not happen. Due to the fact that no one from the site came across to let us know that we could drive round and book in, we, and other caravaners, we were left there whilst new, and later arrivals, were allowed to just drive up and book in, before us that were waiting, which we found rather annoying. This, however, doesn’t change our opinion regarding the excellent site, but hopefully this booking in system could be better organised, if the Covid pandemic sadly continues.
