Situated close to the village of Meopham, Camer Park is made up of 40 acres of open, mature parkland and woods, and is listed as part of an Area of Outstanding Beauty. Originally the country estate of the Smith-Masters family, the site was converted to a country park and opened to the public in the early 1970s. The Grade II listed estate house, which is still in private hands, can be seen from the park.
The park is known for its wildlife, especially slow worms and lizards, which can often be seen basking in the sunshine in summer. Tree enthusiasts can collect a tree trail leaflet from the information point offering further information about the interesting specimens to be viewed along the route. There’s also a small area of woodland at the eastern end of the site that can be explored. The large expanses of open grass dotted with ancient trees instil a real sense of peace, and Camer is a popular place for families to walk, play and relax throughout the year, or to enjoy picnics in summer or spring. There is a children’s playground, and an ever-popular café serving hot and cold food year round.
