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.

A peaceful Gem in an industrial enviroment

Had two nights at this site. So quiet at night and very well presented. A credit to the wardens, pitches excellent and an abundance of flowers and shrubs. Good walking from site up the teesdale way and seal watching round the barrage a must. Will definitely come again.

Fantastic but sad review

Writing a fantastic review but a sad review. We have been coming here for 9 years and have seen wardens come and go. Unfortunately 2 of the nicest people who we have had the pleasure of meeting and call friends (Harry and Heather) are sadly moving on to pastures new. Our stays here will not be the same as we will not be seeing your happy faces but wish you both the very best of luck and hope to see yous again soon. ☹️☹️☹️

Simply one of the best

Just back from a few days at Whitewater. We store our van here but love it so much that we usually stay onsite at least a couple of times each year. The wardens are all fabulous, so friendly and taking great care of this beautiful site. When you arrive there are flowers growing everywhere and the site is always clean and well kept. We have a dog and never have any issues as we keep our Bernese on a lead as per club rules (under 2 metres) and always take her the short walk off site to let her do her business and then clean up after her. There’s great walks around the Tees Barrage and we often see seals in the waters. Whitewater truly is a little haven of tranquility close to home.

One of the nicest sites on system

We have just returned from The White Water Park and have loved our 6 days there. We booked this site originally because there was little else available for this particular week, and so glad we did. Like the previous reviewer said, it is an oasis in the middle the middle of an area that was once a hub of industry. At night it was so quiet and peaceful. There are some very nice walks from the site down the river Tees and past 2 nature reserves, a bird watchers paradise, we spent quite a bit of time watching the seals at the barrage which is only 5 minutes walk away. There is a very large supermarket just a short walk away along with many other large stores too. The wardens were so nice and helpful and in spite of the Covid crisis we felt completely safe, given the steps put in place by the club, we were initially a bit apprehensive but all was fine. This has to be one of the most beautifully kept sites that the club has, the gardens are perfect and facilities top notch, so very well done to each one of staff, you are a credit to the club. It's a very easy site to find, being only a short distance from the A19, wether you are travelling from north or south. All in all we will most certainly re visit this site and would highly recommend it to our friends and family.

Life after lockdown.

This was our first outing after the covid lock down, 4/07/20 opening day of English sites. As we arrived into the area Tee-side is very industrialised, then you drive over the tees barrage and turn onto this little oasis of a site. We were greeted by the wardens who handed us our site information and instructions to how the social distancing system worked for the facilities. We found our pitch and set up. We spent 7 days on this site also visiting family in the local area (socially distancing) the site itself is immaculately kept, all the facilities were as you would expect for a club site spotlessly clean. The wardens and staff were friendly and on hand to assist if required they all worked hard to ensure the safety of every one on site with an exhaustive cleaning regime. All members appeared happy with the system in place to maintain social distancing. As stated earlier this site is an oasis in an industrial area its quiet, well kept and on the edge of a nature reserve, we were also surprised to find some grey seals swimming by the barrage as we took an evening walk by the river. We will definitely return to this site not only as its convenient to visit family but its a lovely site just on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors.
