Campsite review: St Helens in the Park
A reader review of St Helens in the Park
Introduction to St Helens in the Park
In the depths of winter, this campsite ticked all the boxes for a few days in the fresh air. Easy to access direct from the main A170, the entrance is slightly uphill through an attractively landscaped area on an old railway line.
There is some very slight road noise on the pitches to the south of the site, but I imagine, in summer, the trees act as a very effective shield and it in no way impinged on the overall peacefulness of the site.

What the campsite has to offer
The site is well maintained and laid out in gentle terraces with spacious pitches, both fully serviced and hardstanding with electric hook-up.
There are three ablutions blocks spread across the site, but only one was open when we visited; it was immaculately clean, with hot showers! There is a launderette, dishwashing facilities and an information room. The reception houses a small shop.
There are frequent buses on the main road, with the stop just a few minutes’ stroll.
