Nice to see some positive reviews for June on this forum.

I have been a regular visitor to this site since 1988, firstly as a backpacker, but more recently with a motorcycle. It still means I require a good clean site, a flat pitch, showers, dishwashing facilities, and to feel I can leave my gear safely in the tent.

I get all of this at Oxford. There has been uncertainty about the future of this site, and perhaps the washrooms need a 'touch up' but this site is perfect for Oxford. A 5 minute bus journey to the city centre!

The wardens are especially helpful and polite. Reading some of the earlier reviews makes me wonder what people actually expect from camping. I listed my expectations in the third paragraph.

For the benefit of reviewer Carol Jean: next time you visit, to get to the river- walk towards Oxford, turn right at Tesco Express and a 5-10 minute walk takes you to the Donington Bridge and the river.

I hope to be able to continue visiting this site again and again. Top marks!

The location of this site is brilliant, not the surrounding area, which is pretty ugly and industrial, but the fact that Oxford is a very pleasant half hour walk along the river and the bus stop is right outside the door.

However, the site itself is not a campsite, it is a car park. I have never stayed anywhere with so little space or privacy. The customer service also left a lot to be desired - 'jobs worth' is the expression that springs to mind. The only redeeming feature about the site itself is the abundance of hot water in the shower block - provided you didn't need to use the facilities during the unusually long periods they were closed.

Since the service was so bad, I would normally boycott the site, but the location is so convenient we probably will end up going again.

Its location location location for this campsite. The nearest and handiest for visiting Oxford. Many bus services and about 10 minutes by bus to the city centre. There is a handy Tesco Express about 5 minutes walk away that do lovely warm croissants from about 7 a. M.

The site itself, once you enter past the out door shop is quite attractive with plenty of water points etc. Very little in the way of hard standing. The shower and toilet block, whilst clean and usable badly needs updating. There is a washing machine/dryer. No play facilities for children. There is a park and an indoor swimming pool a short bus ride/15 mins approx. Walk away. No motorhome waste disposal. Some traffic noise but we didn't find it intrusive.

This is a busy site just outside of oxford city, If you approach the site coming over the bridge you might miss the entrance as the sign post is covered by a tree, it is right beside the go outdoors entrance and actually shares their car park entrance. The site is dated but very clean, good access for wheel chairs and mobility scooters, buses run every 15minutes from outside the site into the city, 30 minutes on Sundays, nearest pub and shop about 10/15 minute walk on flat path.

Not expensive. Good showers -not push button which is good! The shower block was fine -not sure why people are so fussy about shower blocks -i mean how long do you spend there! As long as they are clean with hot water -which they were. Friendly site managers. On reading other reviews I notice that someone said a 20 minute walk along the river. We didn't notice the river so close -did I miss this? I would have thought it would take much longer to walk into Oxford, the 'start' of Oxford centre being Folly Bridge. We took the bus and also cycled into Oxford. Oxford is amazing ! I never realised that it had so many beautiful ancient buildings housing the many (around 47) educational institutions. Also all the bicycles! We cycled along the canal (which begins at Hythe Bridge Street). We just made it up to Wolvercote which didn't take long. 3 pubs there. The Trout Inn had a lovely location by the river. I will just deduct one point for the fact that we (and some others I noticed) arrived before 12 but had to wait until 12 to be seen and also the shower block is closed between 12 and 1. 30pm but apart from that it was excellent.

We had a great 8 days at Oxford site so convenient, wardens really friendly and welcoming, could not do too much for us, facilities a bit dated but always clean, cite clean and tidy at all times busy cite but well organised will definitely go again, the cite is very convenient for supermarkets, and the shops and restaurants in Oxford are great.
