One of our many caravan and motorhome sites in North Yorkshire, the Knaresborough Club Campsite is set in Lower Nidderdale and serves as a perfect gateway to the Yorkshire Dales and the many attractions of the North of England. The site is surrounded by mature trees and hedges and on fine days it is sunny yet well sheltered.

The historic market town of Knaresborough is within easy access of Knaresborough Club Campsite and boasts a nostalgic town crier, ancient walkways, atmospheric castle ruins, cobbled alleys and secret passages that lead to picturesque tea rooms, delightful restaurants and quaint traditional pubs. 

The central market is home to the weekly Wednesday market which is still famous for its locally prepared lavender water. Summer activities include the annual Bed Race in June and Knaresborough Festival in August. This campsite has it all: boating on the River Nidd, scenic walks, excellent dog walk nearby, tennis and pitch 'n' putt - all in all a family destination likely to prove a winner throughout the season. Don't miss beautiful Ripley Castle, the old Court House Museum, magical Mother Shipton's Cave and Petrifying Well.

Throughout the year, you can take advantage of the Wanderer Cafe Bar on site, and the children can burn off their energy at the site's play area.

Excellent Easter Break

Knaresborough Club Campsite
A lovely Easter break at this spotlessly clean and tidy site. Pitches are an excellent size and well laid out. Great site to explore the surrounding area with very good transport links if you don’t want to use your car or take out your Motorhome. Efficient and pleasant welcome on arrival, we plan to visit again soon.

Liked it so much we booked to go back in autumn

Knaresborough Club Campsite
Lovely site with good sized pitches. We were warmly welcomed by the team. 2 toilet/shower blocks were clean and well maintained. It was good that they were not both closed at the same time for cleaning. Small dog field on site, and lots of great walks in the area. The site was rich with bird song, and we saw red kites too. We loved it so much we have booked a return visit in autumn.

An excellent site

Knaresborough Club Campsite
Fed up with the endless rain we looked for a site where we could be sure of good hardstandings and found Knaresborough Club Campsite. The welcome we were given on arrival was excellent and we continued on to spend a wonderful weekend exploring the area. The site is immaculate, wardens keeping it spotlessly clean and tidy. The cafe/ bar was a welcome addition, especially as dogs were allowed in. The area has much to offer - we visited the stunning Fountains Abbey which offers numerous delightful walks and a fantastic dog friendly cafe. Near to the site we explored the Nidd Gorge - a beautiful and well kept woodland walk by the river - very full due to the rain. We will definitely be back and have plans to explore the Dales and Harrogate, plus more.

Free wake up call included!

Knaresborough Club Campsite
Lovely site and great week stay, site well kept and good sized pitches. Only one big negative was the guy staying in the motorhome opposite pitch 60 and behind 58, it isnt defined as a pitch on the site map. Every morning his dogs were running loose barking anytime between 5am and 7am, I thought the first time was going to be a one off. What makes it even worse is he appears to be the odd job man working for the club and assuming pitch free and clearly needs to be taught the rules around expected behavior and consideration for other guests. You can't blame Monty or Oscar! Not a good example for people staying within the vicinity of him, especially the prices we are paying for a relaxing stay without a lie in!

Bathroom facilities tired

Knaresborough Club Campsite
Great site, location good, staff very friendly and helpful, site kept spotless. I would like to say however that the bathroom facilities are looking very tired and old, poorly flushing toilets and dribbling showers, staff are doing their best but CMHC should really invest asap as we were told this is a really busy site and at £33 a night - this is disappointing
