Support the Charity that manages Stanwick Lakes

Stanwick Lakes is a social enterprise and one of the key ways of financially supporting the site is to charge for car parking, as in many other parks across the UK. By joining the Stanwick Lakes Membership Scheme you are supporting Rockingham Forest Trust, the charity that manages Stanwick Lakes. Money raised from admission charges (through car parking) is re-invested in the site and the Trust’s charitable work.

Please note that memberships can be renewed, or a new one taken out, at the reception desk in the visitor centre. It is open daily.
