The park is located nearby the cathedral and the Royal Palace, and is a fantastic place to go for a stroll once you get tired of all the architecture and beautiful streets of the city. Full of places to seat and enjoy the nature, a nice place for a break.

A nice park! We took a metro there, there is a station called Casa de Campo. It is very big, there is a lot to see. We liked taking pictures with yellow flowers, we found a viewing point, for this we had to hike a little bit up, you have a nice view of the city from far. Going down was a bit tricky but we were brave. And in the end we even found a nice lake (not for swimming, just for the view) with some ice cream places and restaurants. It was a good day! It is not a must when you are in Madrid as it does not offer any unique photo experience however you can go there!

Truly one of the worst resorts I’ve EVER
experienced. Staff is extremely rude and we were harassed by the staff for laughing and enjoying the company of the other guests. Please don’t ever consider staying here.. it is a nightmare.

This is one of the biggest parks in Spain. It is five times bigger than the Central Park in NYC. Casa de Campo is a historical park from the Renaissance. It used to be the hunting ground for the royal family.
It is a great place to walk, run, or ride a bike.
Inside the park, you can find different entertainments, the zoo, the theme park...
The Filomena storm caused a havoc, many trees were damaged!

Great for picnics, just overcrowded in the weekend so if you like the quiet avoid those days. Absolutely amazing during sunsets and at night.

This is an absolutely stunning park. I ran around here for 16 miles and did not cover half of the trails/paths available. There are lots of picnic areas as well as drinking water fountains dotted around the place.

We walked for 3 hours through the park and only scratched its surface, it is so huge. Its an amazing, calming place to take a lengthy stroll.

I thought the park was decent. I'd say that Parque del Buen Retiro is definently way more interesting to walk through, however the view of the city of Madrid and the amusement park is pretty cool. Taking the teleferico from Arguelles to Casa de Campo and back made it more entertaining for sure.

The Casa de Campo was really impressive as a park. Unlike the Retiro, this area feels more or less like it's been left to grow wild and there are apparently deer in the park, although I didn't see any.

For the tourist, there's an amusement park, but on limited time I'd come here for two purposes. Firstly to see the view back into the city and secondly to ride the cable car.

For those with an interest in Spanish History, the Casa de Campo was a battle field during Spain's civil war and it's one of the places where the Republican armies held the nationalists advance on Madrid.

There is a viewing area very near to the entrance to the Teleferico (cable car), with maps (which could used a little TLC) laying explaining what you can see of the city. The Teleferico takes you from the center of the park into Arguelles north of the University.

If you're interested in this period of Spanish history, the University is where the journalists Ernest Hemmingway and Martha Gelhorn viewed the nationalist lines from the Republican defences (From the Teleferico you can also walk 10 mins to the site of the Hotel Florida, where many of the pro-Republican journailsts were based at the beginning of the conflict. It was pulled down around 1964, and is now the site of the department store El Cortes Ingles)

Casa de Campo is a huge park. It is the largest in Madrid. Our hotel was a few minutes walk from the park so we did not have too far to walk. You could catch the metro and get off at Lago station, or get the cable car, but we don't know where exactly you can get this one. However it would be best to just walk there and back if you can afford the time. That way you can keep your figure and enjoy the sights at the same time. The park is host to numerous things. The Madrid Zoo is there and people can often see various animals wandering about, not wild ones though. There is an amusement park there. Visitors can enjoy a picnic, a rest, a walk a run, or a game or whatever. There is a big lake and some boats.
