Golfers' campsite surrounded by the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales.

Located in the heart of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, Akebar Park is a large family-orientated holiday park that offers something for everyone. Golf-lovers will delight in the challenging 18-hole golf course on site while history buffs can soak up North Yorkshire's rich heritage at the nearby Richmond Castle, Revaulx and Jervaulx Abbeys.
The park is surrounded by the ancient landscapes of the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales national parks, offering a variety of outdoor activities to enjoy from hiking and climbing to bird-watching.

Akebar Park has excellent facilities and provides everything needed for a relaxed, carefree stay. A recently renovated toilet block provides modern shower and washroom facilities and baby changing room, washroom, and laundrette can also be found on the site.
A brand new children’s play park promises hours of fun for the little ones, while a traditional on-site pub and restaurant does the same for adults, with a beer garden, blazing log fire and Yorkshire ales. Enjoy a game of golf on the challenging 18-hole course or the par-three nine-hole course if you are not up to par. A three-acre canine exercise area awaits the dogs.
