Lots of walks with woodlands to explore. A gentle walk around the reservoir finishing with a sit down on the Promenade to take in the fresh air and enjoy the scenery. One of the walks from the car park leads you on to the moors to the Druids Altar, where lovers kiss and leave offerings and love tokens. It is said that the love of those who kiss whilst sat on the Altar Stone lasts forever!

Love to go here at weekends to walk the dog in a safe environment. Parking can be tricky at times.

Since lockdown I have been aware of increasing numbers of people riding bikes, often in groups of 4 or 5, and going quite fast so have to move out of their way and keep the dog away from them. Disappointing as I see signs saying no bikes are allowed.

I love coming to Ogden with my dog for walks. Not only can you walk around the reservoir but there is a vast country park to walk around with lots of different trails to explore. It’s a nice peaceful place and I spend a good couple of hours here each time with my dog. The only problem I have with, not the park itself, is the road leading to the park and the parking. The road leading in is very tight, part of it enough to only fit one car through, so I’m always praying I don’t come head on with another driver. Parking is very limited and the bottom car park is usually rammed even on a week day. There are a further 2 small car parks on higher levels which you have to drive up to. You have to be very careful driving up as it’s not like driving up a normal road as it’s very rocky and quite steep. Parking costs a pound that you drop into the visit centre and I think that’s very reasonable. Despite the road and car park we love coming here and will continue to do so.

If your in the area and would like a good walk round a lovely reservoir this is a really beautiful area .It is level with good paths you can also walk thru the woods all around which is a little more hilly the views around are gorgeous as you are on top of the Pennines. There is ample parking and even a little tea room and picnic tables. And a pub with food at the end of the road.

The Ogden Water Country Park & Nature Reserve is a wonderful place for a hike, or walk. It is so important in these times to get out of the house. Connecting with nature helps out with your positive mental attitude (PMA) - something we all need right now. There is a great circular path around the reserve and many paths that branch off. The paths that are off the main have some great inclines on the hills. The main path is relatively flat. The people walking the paths are so friendly. Almost everyone we walked past gave a greeting it was nice to have human interaction again.

The car park is limited. The sign states that it's £1 to park and to pay at the visitor centre. The box that the money would normally go in was missing on Sunday.

Very attractive local walking area with good paths and variety for all ages. Access road is quite narrow - and car parking could be limited at busy times. Disappointing that Visitor Centre and Toilets remain closed, 11 July 2020, (given that both could not be reopened under Covid guidelines.

We walked the longer route using the yorkshire water route map from their walks website. It starts from the car park then heads up onto ovenden moor. Following the stream up to the moor is worth doing as the views are incredible. Then back down the path to the reservoir wall.
A great find which we will do again.

What's not to like about Yorkshire, the people, warm hearted and brilliant, this Country Park, beautiful..only thing not to like is (sometimes) the weather!..Coming from down South, I say that where the weather is normally better, but lacking the warm people and countryside.
This park is beautiful..weather was overcast but pleasant..on a sunny day..probably full of local people.

Really pretty place with a nice gentle walk around the lake. Great to just relax, take the kids, dog and a nice gentle path around the lake. Shame about the car park which was pretty rammed. Will definitely be back
