General

  • Three specimen carp lakes on site
  • On 70 acres of landscaped parkland close to Exmoor
  • Play area, shop and country club

If a caravan park has 'Riverside' in its name, you might reckon you might get some fishing. And you'd be right: South Molton's Riverside Caravan and Camping Park has three specimen lakes stocked with quality carp, and more angling (and paddling) can be availed of at the nearby River Mole.

The site sits on 70 acres of landscaped parkland with ten acres of mature woodland running alongside the River Mole: as you might also reckon, it's all mighty pretty.

Riverside is a family-friendly park and has a play area and an on-site shop. A new country club was added in 2017, with a bar and restaurant, serving homemade food and a selection of local lagers, ciders and ales. It's a popular venue for the variety of entertainment on site, or for settling down for a quiet time during the day to use the free wifi.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Occasional on-site events are taking place each month to celebrate the tenth year in business. Events will include live music and entertainment.

  • Liked: 

    Quiet site, good fishing lakes, lovely friendly staff who were really welcoming, good clean shower and toilet facilities

    Disliked: 

    Not enough bins near camping pitches meant a long walk to get rid of any rubbish, new shower block that was by the camping field was locked up for the duration of our stay so had to go to the one near to reception, which was a little further
