Our caravn and camping choice of the week goes to York Rowntree Park Caravan and Motorhomes site. This caravan park in York is one to shout about. It is located beside the stunning River Ouse, and just a ten-minute walk from York historic City Centre. The York Rowntree Park Caravan and Motorhome Site which was formerly known as Rowntree Park has 99 pitches all of which have connections for electricity and TV.
If you are worried about the York camping site being so close to the city centre and concerned about the noise, then don’t. The Rowntree Park camping site is very peaceful. You cannot hear any noise whatsoever from the city centre.
It is advisable to book York Rowntree Park Caravan and Motorhome Site in advance due to its popularity. To be honest, those wanting to stay on the York camping site should look at booking at least two months in advance.
One of the downsides of the York caravan park is they don’t allow late arrivals. You must arrive before 20:00 to gain access. This is something the York Rowntree Park Caravan and Motorhome Site owners who are the Caravan & Motorhome Club should look into. It can be very inconvenient if you are stuck in traffic and arrive late and are not allowed access.
This is truly the best camping site York has to offer. It is a modern camping site with 99 good sized pitches which are separated by beech hedges. I love the beech hedges as they provide privacy. Although they are all good-sized pitches, some are not suitable for caravans with awnings. So, if you plan to visit the York camping site with a caravan that has an awning then it is important to speak to the site pre-booking.
There is a pedestrian gate at the back of the York caravan park that takes you to local shops including a fish and chip shop that has a café. You really do need to try this fish and chip shop. You also have Indian and Thai restaurants as well as other takeaways. There is also a selection of convenience shops.
Unlike a lot of camping sites in the UK, the Rowntree Park York site has a great friendly reception that sells essential items.
The York Rowntree Park Caravan Club Site makes a perfect base for those wishing to explore the wonderful Yorkshire area. It has become a popular York camping site for its location and easy access to all the great things that York has to offer.

The York Dungeons is another great place to visit, and for the children, or for those that love trains, York’s National Railway Museum is a great day out.
