Touring pitches have electric hook-up and are separated by evergreen laurel hedging. Fresh water points are at the caravan site entrance and facilities building.
Brookside Country Park is a sun-trap so you can make good use of picnic benches conveniently placed around the park.
Reception and the centrally heated facilities building are located at the far end of the site.
Showers and WC’s are well-equipped with hair-dryers and hand-driers, all bright and pristinely clean with no extra charge for showers.
A thoughtful touch for guests with mobility concerns is a block paved touring pitch and pathway leading to the disabled WC/washroom.

Brookside Country Park is located at an historic ferry point on the River Trent under the North Lincolnshire Edge, the wooded ridge sheltering this corner of South Humber and Lincolnshire from the industrial East.

The Trent bridleway is 150m from the park at the Ferry Boat Inn. A fishing lake is 500m.

You can join the Trent Way footpath behind the caravan park and walk 2.5 miles to Alkborough.
Pause at Burton picnic spot to view the confluence of the Rivers Ouse and Trent where they form the Humber.
At Alkborough visit the ancient turf maze and wetland nature reserves 5 miles east on the banks of the River Humber are Far Ings and Waters Edge Country Park nature reserves in the shadow of the Humber Bridge.
