Oxford Camping and Caravanning Club Site is one of the most unique sites in the United Kingdom and one of the most popular caravan parks in Oxfordshire. We are situated close to the centre of the famous city, yet somehow still manage to provide a location that makes you feel like you have countryside for miles around, although the centre of Oxford can get lively, particularly during evenings and weekends.
We are open throughout the year, welcoming guests, their families, and their family pets onto site whenever they need a break and wish to explore the Oxfordshire countryside or the university city itself. Our pitches are suitable for motorhomes, tents, and touring caravans, with electric hook-ups and Wi-Fi internet provided, along with on-site facilities for laundry, washing up, and chemical waste disposal.
We are little more than a mile outside of the city centre of Oxford; if you want to travel into the city you can walk along picturesque pathways that will take you past fields as well as some stunning period homes, cycle along the same routes, or enjoy a trip on the excellent public transport that runs throughout the city.
The most popular attractions within Oxford itself are Oxford Castle, along with the University buildings, many of which are open to the public throughout the year, and museums. A number of popular Oxfordshire walking routes pass through or start and end in the city, many of these aim to highlight historic landmarks or locations, such as places of birth or where notable people lived, while others are there simply to get you out into nature and enjoying the surroundings.
Pendon Indoor Model Village and Railways is a popular attraction that can be reached via a short walk, and we often see guests returning inspired to begin a new hobby! Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens can be reached following a short drive, and has acres of parkland and gardens to explore, while Blenheim Palace offers much the same as well as opportunities to explore the building itself.
You can enjoy fishing in the early winding sections of the Thames from the site, as well as find a number of sports grounds for ball games or simply relaxing and taking in the beauty of the city. Driving to the country towns of Witney, Abingdon, and Woodstock will enable you to experience local produce, buy from independent businesses, and give you a great feel of life in this wonderful area.

Oxford has a wealth of attractions, including a variety of museums and Oxford Castle, which recounts the history of four centuries of prison life in the city. The university is made up of a number of colleges – Christ Church even has its own cathedral – and also has a Botanic Garden.
As well as walking the city, you can follow the Thames Path to Abingdon, which continues to Long Whitenham and the Pendon Indoor Model Village and Railways. Further afield, the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens is in 160 acres of parkland and Blenheim Palace features gardens, courtyards and parks by landscape artist Capability Brown.

Small tight site with a sign that is easily missed. There was noise but the description in the handbook is accurate. Excellently placed by bus stop, camping shop and just outside the city. The Thames is a five minute's walk away. Warden's excellent and helpful- I had a problem with gas. Plan to return.

Located behind a camping supermarket the site is dissapointing. The entrance can be blocked for some time due to incoming caravans and motorhomes. Friendly and helpfull wardens do not compensate for the overall datedness of this site. Pitches are cramped and seperated in some cases by rotting boarding which evoke memories of some municipal sites in France. At the time of my visit the shower block was unheated but clean. Like the rest of the site the block needs updating to bring it in line with other sites. Electrical supply points look in need of upgrading and on the first night of my visit, failed on two occasions Noise from the nearby railway and A34 continues througout the night and is occasionaly enhanced by the nearby Dairy depot. In my opinion this sites only plus point is it's proximity to Oxford and to the park and ride facility opposite.
