St Neots campsite is on the banks of the Great Ouse, a wildlife haven & close to town.

Walkers, cyclists and fishermen will love our St Neots Club campsite. Within striking distance of the south Cambridgeshire market town of the same name, our St Neots campsite enjoys a waterside position on the banks of the River Ouse.

Our charming campsite is ideally situated for visiting the many attractions and walking and cycling countryside of the south Cambridge area. It has 180 pitches. Bag yourself a riverside pitch and sit back and watch the boats sail by. Fishing is available here from 16 June until the site closes for the season.

Although the site enjoys a quiet location, all the amenities you need are on the doorstep. You are within strolling distance of a lovely pub and a lovely riverside walk brings you into St Neots which offers a number of independent shops as well as national retailers and a varied choice of eating places.

During the summer St Neots hosts a number of festivals including a medieval festival and a regatta.

The town also has a number of parks including the Common, Priory Park and Riverside Park. Set amongst huge weeping willow trees, there are lakes for boating and fishing, picnic areas, children's play areas, and many marked cycle and footpaths.

For nature lovers Paxton Pits Nature Reserve at Little Paxton, comprises 75 hectares of gravel pits, meadows, scrub and woodland next to the River Great Ouse. There is a wealth of wildlife and a network of marked paths to enjoy.

The university city of Cambridge is around ten miles from the campsite and has many cultural attractions and shopping opportunities.

Worth Noting

Please note that canoe/dinghy or any small boat launching on the Great Ouse must be registered before arrival with the Environment Agency Recreational Waterway (Registration) 1979. As the entrance/exit road to this site is very narrow with no passing places, please ensure that you do not arrive before 12 noon.

This review is for St Neots

Only the office amenities block was open, apparently on the instructions of head office because the site wasn't that busy, yet most of the hardstandings were occupied. So 3 showers each and only one hand dryer! The shower trays are also chipped. The roads are badly potholed. The grassed areas were ankle deep with rain water, no one's fault, but the potholes were also filled with water, so getting about the site was not easy and this is because of poor maintainance to the road. It's otherwise a lovely site, great walks along the river, or through the park and into town. Always loved this site, and luckily after dreadful weather as we arrived, the sun came out for the whole of our stay. We will continue to visit this site but it really needs some TLC.

April after a long period of Rain is obviously not the best time to visit this site.

This review is for St Neots

April after a long period of Rain is obviously not the best time to visit this site. On arrival a comment was passed that the site had flooded up to the offices 3 times in the previous 5 weeks - not a good start. Due to the weather the grass was uncut (not the sites fault but a fact no less) which meant wellies was the dress code for the day(s). Despite being nearly full only 1 toilet/shower block was open which was up by the office which meant negotiating the flooded roads, puddles and wet grass. After the second day of rain nearly every pitch had it's own paddling pool despite being alweather hard standings. On the plus side the walk along the river bank (2 miles) to Tesco's is one of the more pleasant features of the site. There's a childrens play area just outside the entrance to the site and a very nice walk through the site, over the footpath and through the park takes to you the town centre via a nice little cafe on the side of the park/ car park. Not the cheapest but good quality lunch menu. Speaking to others on the site I get the impression that it is very popular, busy and very nice when the weather is kind. Recommendation: Yes but not in April!

Welcome was great .

This review is for St Neots

Welcome was great .We have been to this site every year since purchasing our motorhome and it's lovely.The first thing that grated was only one shower / toilet block was available and the showers looked a bit tired i.e chipped shower base.We knew about the chances of flooding but after 24h of rain the roads were potholed and full of water making it difficult to get about.Sort these things out and the site would be even better.

This review is for St Neots

We found this site a few years ago, first visit was confusing, driving through a residential estate, thinking "this can't be right" suddenly you burst into a field, and that is the moment the world stops, sitting beside the river on a sunny day, what could be better, a true diamond of a site
