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.
