Our facilities block is open around the clock with hot water available for showers and washing up and underfloor heating to keep your feet warm on those cooler camping days. We also have a separate disabled bathroom which is fully accessible by wheel chair and baby changing. Waste disposal, refuse and recycling is all located in the facilities area.
Our facilities are included in the pitch price and there is no additional cost for the showers. The ladies facilities block also has a hair dryer and GHDs at an additional cost of 20p.
Around the back of the facilities (River Field side) you will find a drying room with a washer and a dryer which are coin operated. The washing machine costs £4 for a cycle and the dryer is £1 for 20 minutes. We always have change on site and we usually sell washing detergent in the shop.
Refuse and recycling are located next to the facilities block. We ask all of our campers to recycle. We provide white buckets to help separate your refuse and we have recycling bins for paper, cans, glass and plastic. Our aim is to be as green as possible and we would ask our campers to do the same.
Grey water and chemical waste disposal is located at the back of the facilities block (River Field side) and we can only accommodate chemical waste disposal from cassettes.
There is a communal freezer located just to the side of the office where you can store or refreeze your ice pack.
The Masons Team pride themselves on maintain the highest possible standards. We would also ask that you come and find a member of the team and tell them if anything is not as you would hope to find it so that we can rectify the position straight away.
Masons Coffee and Bread Shed is open daily and we pride ourselves on serving some of the best barista coffee in the Yorkshire Dales courtesy of our friends Dark Woods.
We also bake fresh all butter croissants and baguettes daily and offer a selection of home-made cakes. Place your order the night before in either the office or the Bread Shed and your freshly baked pastries will be ready for collection the next morning!
We strive to be as green as possible on site and we use veg ware fully compostable cups and lids.
Operating within the National Park can mean that our WiFi is somewhat intermittent but when working it can be best accessed in our communal courtyard.
The shop and reception are housed in our unique 1983 Squarestream which we shipped in from the US in 2018.
We sell a small selection of food and many camping essentials including amazing bacon and sausages from Jackson’s Farm shop in Cracoe (we have yet to find better anywhere!). We also sell, milk, eggs, butter, sweets and pocket money toys for the kids.
After moving the airstream office from the communal Court Yard to the Main Field we decided to use to the space to create a twinkling boules court for your enjoyment.
There are plastic skittles and boules located in the box for your convenience. If you would like to play with proper French boules please see the office. We require a £10 cash deposit but there is no hire charge and this will returned to you once the boules are checked back in.
This is a lovely family activity that everyone can enjoy. We found our inspiration on our own family camping holiday in the South of France.
We have a number of electric cables, extension leads and camping beds for hire in case you forget your own. We take a £30 security deposit and item hire is £10 for one night, £2.50 per night thereafter. Please contact the office who will be happy to help.
There is fly fishing available on the banks of the River at the bottom of the campsite. You will need a fishing permit which lasts for one day and costs £5. These can be obtained from the office. Live bait fishing is not permitted. Members of the BCAA can park at the site and fish at a cost of £3.50 but we will need site of their licence.

We do not allow campers to bring their own fire pits to Masons.
We take the safety of our campers and the protection of the National Park very seriously. All of our rules and regulations have been put in place to make sure that fire risk is limited and that our campers do not cause damage to the land or the homes of the wildlife that we are pirivileged to live alongside. What looks like great fire material to you could very easily be a hedgehog’s home. For this reason, it is strictly forbidden to forage for wood. Only our sustainably sourced wood is allowed to be used and additional bags can be purchased from the shop at £6 per bag.
As avid campers, we know sitting around a campfire with your friends and family can be one of life’s greatest moments. For that reason we have a limited number of fire pits available to hire that have been designed to sit at a sensible height above the ground. We understand it can be disappointing if there is no fire pits left on arrival but we have the maximum number of fires that can be safely managed. To try and minimise disappointment group are limited to one fire pit per group.
We take a £10 cash security deposit for the hire of the fire pit which is refunded to you once the fire pit is returned clean and the hot ashes in the hot ash bins in the designated fire pit area next to the office.
Fire pit hire include one bag of logs, any additional bags can be purchased.
Kindling £3 per bag
Additional wood can only be purchased inside office hours only.
Single night hire is subject to availability. This is normally restricted to mid-week bookings only outside peak periods.
Additional hire £5 per night
