St Helens In The Park, North Yorkshire
It is an established caravan park on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and is only six miles from Scarborough. Set in the Wykeham Estate, the park offers a relaxed atmosphere surrounded by a wealth of traditional and historic holiday attractions.
Accessed directly from the main A170 road, a private road winds around to the reception area and there is a late night arrivals park with electrical hook-ups. This is a well-maintained large 36-acre site, divided into terraces with tree screening creating smaller and more intimate areas. Tarmac roads lead around this well landscaped park and all but twenty of the pitches have electric hook-ups which are on level grass and generous in size.
Seasonal pitches are available and there are low season discounts, together with a large winter storage compound. There are an additional two fields devoted to tent campers. For those wanting peace and quiet there is an adults zone where no tricycles and whistles are allowed.

A launderette, well-stocked licensed shop and takeaway, offering breakfasts and daily essentials, free Wi-Fi and well-stocked tourist information centre complete the list of facilities on offer. The reception area has friendly staff and stocks certain caravan requirements, as well as Calor gas.
