Why stay here ...

LOW 10% refundable deposit & FREE cancellations*

A popular holiday site in North Yorkshire, York Rowntree Park Club Campsite offers level pitches located on the banks of the River Ouse. Some pitches have attractive hedging and glades which provide not only a scenic treat but also ensure your privacy. The Club Campsite is within easy walking distance of the beautiful and historic city of York and also makes for an excellent base from which to explore the Yorkshire area. York itself has so much to see and do that you'll find the time can slip by all too easily. Using a pedestrian gate at the back of the site leads you to a parade of local shops, including a fantastic fish and chip shop with cafe, Indian and Thai restaurants and numerous takeaways as well as a selection of Cafe's, food and convenience shops.

Although the site is near to the city centre, it is peaceful and has a lovely rural feel, with pleasant walks down the side of the river to the Millennium bridge and more. York Rowntree Park Club Campsite is ideal for those wishing to visit York Minster - the largest gothic cathedral in northern Europe. Do include a walk to the city's medieval walls and the Shambles to get a feel of the old city with its medieval timber framed houses. You may also stumble across Snickelways of York which is a collection of small street and footpaths. Why not walk down Whip-ma-whop-ma-gate: a street of historical interest which is the shortest street in York with the longest name. Whilst staying at York Rowntree Park why not call in at the many real ale pubs, The York Dungeons, Jorvik Viking Centre and take a time-car, which will transport you back to the city's distant past. Should you have any budding archaeologists in the family, visit the ARC at St Saviours Church and train enthusiasts of all ages won't want to miss the award-winning National Railway Museum.

Great for York Centre

York Rowntree Park Club Campsite
We've just returned from 3 nights at Rowntree Park. We had a great time in York, which is a easy walk from the site. The site itself is basically car park with pitches. The wardens were friendly and helpful. The facility block is a typical club shower block and was clean throughout our stay. Next to the site is Rowntree Park, which is a large park with tennis courts, kids swings and a dog walking area, the park was closed throughout our stay due to flooding. All in all we had a great time at this site and will visit again. The site does have 2 faults. Fault one is because of the River Ouse right outside the site then in winter the site has to be regularly evacuated because of flooding. The 2nd problem is that because the site is so handy for York Centre you have to book months in advance to get a pitch at weekend. Those issues aside we can wholly recommend YRP & its wardens.

Disappointed

York Rowntree Park Club Campsite
This is a first rate site we have used several times but the attitude of the club when you are required to vacate the site when there is a flood anticipated and the EA decide to close the barrier is disappointing, you might expect to receive a refund for the missed nights, unfortunately not, buyer beware.

Great Christmas break

York Rowntree Park Club Campsite
Booked the stay at Rowntree several months ago but a late worry as the site was closed due to flooding to only a few days before our booking. Fortunately site opened before our stay which was brilliant! Lovely warm welcome on arrival and pitch just as we requested. Wardens so friendly and helpful and facilities block clean and tidy. Short walk into the heart of York with all the lovely pubs shops and sights the city has to offer. On leaving on our planned day, it had rained heavily overnight and there was a sign on exit that campers need to keep in touch with site. Later that afternoon the site was evacuated. Brilliant site, brilliant wardens, brilliant location, but just be aware of the flood risk.

Christmas markets visit

York Rowntree Park Club Campsite
Haven't been here for a while as we have found alternative at better price and handy bus. Queue for motorhome water point in the rain.possibly time for 2 considering amount of motorhomes that use the site. Toilet block cool most of the time and water could be hotter. Used bus from by sainsburys bishopthorpe road. City busy as expected. Will use again Subject to price.

Great location

York Rowntree Park Club Campsite
Great location, very near centre of York (10/15 mins walk) with river to one side and a park to the other, The other sides of the site had houses/hotel so may have felt a little over looked, but we were the park side and that was great. We used Streamline taxis to get about, excellent service, prompt, friendly drivers and not expensive, highly recommend.
