Things to Do Fishing

About Scaling Dam

Set within the North York Moors National Park, Scaling Dam is the perfect location for a full day of fun.

Well worth a visit for a glorious day out in unpolluted, clean environment; Scaling Dam offers pike and coarse fishing, amazing scenery, enjoyable walks and picnic areas ripe for a relaxing bit of downtime from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Make your own fun with ball games, storytelling and all kinds of imaginative play and discovery.

Bring along your four-legged friend to enjoy with you the refreshing open-air, but please keep them on a lead at all times.


Dogs are very welcome but must be kept on leads.

Please can we remind all visitors that entering the water for unauthorised swimming, water sports / inflatables fun or just for a quick cool down is not allowed. We like to keep all our visitors safe and to do this we must request that you stay out of the water and its hidden dangers at all times.
