“Great country park and campsite”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

We didn't use all the camping facilities available so can't comment on it all,but toilets were fine,good washing facilities and lovely camping pitches surrounded by trees and bushes.
Lots of play equipment for the children,pretty lakes and bike trails.Bike route into Olney was scenic and convenient.Olney is a lovely market town with all amenities.Local fish and chip delivered to the campsite and there is a also a cafe on site.We enjoyed our stay and will return.

“Okay but needs improvement!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

Emberton Country Park could be a wonderful place, there are some fantastic children's amenities, three parks two of which are good, one needs serious money put into it.

The cafe is okay but needs a children's menu and a more country park feel.

The toilet facilities are appalling to say the least! No toilet paper, dirty toilets, floors and sinks, and no cleaners by the looks of things!

There was a lot of rubbish all over the park which makes it look untidy.
With better management and staff this could be a fantastic park!

“All about kids here...”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Fantastic place if you have children and want to let them loose for a few hours! Excellent facilites, playgrounds, sandpits, picnic areas and lovely surroundings. Bring the bikes and scooters as the surfaces are great for biking. Lovely day out.

“The lake has got a lot bigger”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

The Country Park is a very nice place to spend a day, there are interesting walks and pretty countryside. If you hadn't noticed though it has rained a bit recently, the lake is now bigger and has totally covered the path on the Olney side. The wild birds must be delighted with all the extra water they now have.

“Very pretty and well maintained”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

There has been a significant investement here over the last couple of years, particularly in the childrens play areas. A 2KM tarmac road runs round the perimeter of the park which is ideal for cycling, walking and jogging. The Cafe has sprung back into life and seems open most days.
You can swim in the lake during the summer as part of the sessions organised my Team MK.
The camp sites are there for those looking to pitch a tent or caravan.......ideal for attending local events. The 10 minute walk into the prety market town of Olney is a must for local shops, restaurants and pubs.
