Wicksteed is a very basic campsite, in the sense that it has some bins, a fresh water tap and a loo block that is a long way from the field, there is no electric hookup or showers, but who needs that for a weekend camping anyway! But on the upside, what a brilliant campsite, absolutely tons of space, pitch where you like, freedom for the kids to play without being near other units, superb.

As I said the toilet block is long walk from the camping field, especially if you pitch right down at the far end, but a porta potti or caravan would be sufficient to get past this problem. There is a train track that runs near to the site, but you don't really notice it as the trains did not run that often.

This is not the flattest field in the world, however it is so large, that I doubt you would struggle to find a suitable flat pitch for your unit. This site could get busy during the summer, as it is a great family site.

We went as part of a group of four units and the sheer size of the field meant we were able to pitch all together and still be a long way from the other campers on the field.

The site itself is great, if you like walking or fishing this is all available on the site, with extensive grounds and lots of fishing lakes. If you have kids then the theme park on site is great, you can either buy a daily wristband or individual tickets, it worked out cheaper for us to get the kids a daily wristband for 15 each, as they certainly got their monies worth, as did us adults! The site has a roller coaster, water flumes, dodgems, bouncy castle, bumpy slide and so much more for children , and adults, of all ages. Food on the park was pricey, but if you are camping, just go back to your unit for lunch!

There is a pub and restaurant on site, but if you leave the site there are shops and restaurants all within a couple of miles, with an Aldi, Tesco and more just a short drive away.

There is lots to see in the area, but if you are with the kids, they will probably not let you go off site exploring, with so much to do on-site!

Overall a great site that I would definitely come back to, especially if meeting friends as we did this time, for a weekend away with the kids, it is also a great venue. If you can live without hookup and showers then this is worth a go and a 10 a night, you cannot go wrong.

Easy access off both the M1 and A1m, makes this a superb location too.

Visited Wickstead for an American Auto Club weekend. We were in the rally field with only basic but clean toilet facilities. We had a great weekend as the Club laid on entertainment.

The theme park is great for young children (up to 10) and some is free of charge otherwise you can purchase day passes.

Nicely landscaped and clean. Would recommend a visit with young kids.
