Symonds Yat West Leisure Park
Reviewed 9 June 2012

Stayed here at the beginning of June, on the positive this is an excellent location to go canoeing from and to explore the surrounding area, we stayed as part of a camping/ canoeing weekend and this was a stop off point en route. Ideal for that purpose but the rest was a let down. The site seemed to be run by a couple of teenage girls for the most part - not a problem as such but some adult management would have been an idea. We were not told that the toilets/shower block has a security code - not ideal if you had got caught short in the night. Only one toilet block was available to us which meant ques, not sure if the other blocks were broken or for 'premier members' but either way this was poor. The toilets/showers were of a poor quality and just about acceptable on the cleanliness front. Why oh why they charge for the showers I do not know - they should probably pay guests to use them. Also found the costs expensive - considering the facilities and condition of the site. I found this costing very strange and over the top. Probably the most serious concern is the lack of common sense/ care in respect of the fire hazard. Tents and caravans were crammed in far to tightly which was a major fire risk and this should probably be investigated further. This also tended to make it feel very over crowded. The amusement park was not really amusing, half the machines were out of order and the onsite shop was small and poorly stocked. Opening hours of the shop depended on whether the person was running the shop or cafe at the time. Such a shame as a nice location with huge potential, it just needs someone to love it a bit - wont be coming back.

We were booked into the campsite at Symonds Yat East originally but on arrival at the campsite (more like a car park) went accross the river and ended up staying at Symonds Yat West (riverwyecamping.co.uk). Its right by the river but its not too close to the family field so you don't have to watch the kids every second. Facilities are fine - bit basic - just a couple showers and toilets - but never had to wait, and a small kitchen area for washing up and a freezer which you're free to use for your ice packs.
Originally we didn't want to stay here because of the fairground and amusement arcade next to campsite but it didn't cause us any problems - it all shuts about 6pm. There's a pub and a cafe too next door but we didn't use either. You can also book can canoeing at the campsite we didn't as our youngest wasn't old enough, so we went on a boat trip instead and that was good.
The staff at the campsite were all very friendly especially Len the carpark attendant - if it hadn't have been for him we would never have seen the Servern Boar - Thanks Len
Will definately go back soon.
