Riverside Caravan and Camping Park is a small, friendly site in a lovely position on the side of the River Ouse.
A 5 minute walk will bring you to Bishopthorpe - a favourite destination for travellers and race-goers as it has been for centuries. Although the village has grown in recent years, its character is still strong, and the old Main Street, with its Post Office, three pubs, Co-op and cottages, has hardly changed at all. Bishopthorpe is home to the grand Archbishop’s palace, which can be seen from our banks.
We welcome Touring Caravans, Trailer Tents, Motor Homes and Tents. All of our pitches have electric hook-up.
We are a peaceful, family oriented site and as such pets are welcome. Shops are available nearby for groceries, milk, eggs, newspapers etc.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
