Thank you for paying to park!
Did you know that Stanwick Lakes is run by Rockingham Forest Trust, a local environmental charity?
Every time you pay the car park charges at Stanwick Lakes you are supporting the conservation and maintenance work that takes place on the site. This includes managing the nature reserve for wildlife, looking after the play equipment and maintaining miles of paths for walking and cycling.
So, whether you pay every time you visit or have an annual membership, we are very grateful for your support.
Admission is charged for through car parking charges (see table below), although the site is free to those who walk or cycle in. Please note that the pay machines accept cash only (change is given) although you can pay by card at the Snack Shack and the Rangers’ log cabin until 8pm.
There is limited parking for coaches for which there is a charge of £30 per coach. (Please note that anything larger than an 18 seater is classed as a coach.) This is effectively an admission charge for use of the facilities, and it applies whether large groups are dropped off or the coach stays on site. Please contact the Rangers (01933 625522) in advance to book a coach parking space.
