Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic location we came across by chance whilst driving up Loch Ken, we telephoned and were given the WiFi and toilet codes and asked to help ourselves to a vacant pitch and they would see us the following day (it was a quite Sunday afternoon at the end of season). We pitched up on a vacant Motorhome pitch overlooking the Loch and couldn’t have been closer to the water. On the Monday morning a man (I think the owner) knocked on our door to see if everything was ok and if we needed anything from the shop, as we didn’t and we wanted to stay another night he said we could make payment with the staff the following day - I think he’s a farmer and obviously busy but made sure to come and see we were ok. The site was very well maintained and was a mix of statics, touring pitches and what would be a camping field in season. The location was fabulous and our experience of the owners and staff were excellent We will certainly visit again.

Well run and very clean site, kept immaculately and facilities were clean and functional. Lovely views of the loch, hired a kayak for a couple of hours which was great. The staff were fabulous and couldn't do enough for you. Even posting a parcel to me when I had left something there. Would recommend to anyone for a quiet holiday with lots to do for a family. In the words of Arnie, "we'll be back!"

We have been going to loch ken holiday park yearly for 5 years Barr covid. This year yet again we had a fantastic family break. The park is beautifully well kept as are the facility’s. Mungo and Andy are very helpful and pleasant. They enforce the park rules to ensure everyone including family’s with children enjoy their stay. Looking forward to visiting for many years to come. Great park great location with access to the loch for water sports.

My husband & I stay at loch ken every year & it never disappoints. We enjoy the freedom it offers for both of us as I enjoy the kayaking whilst my husband likes the fishing. The Loch is so inviting to any swimmer which I took full advantage of. There is also the kite trail which is a lovely walk whilst enjoying the brilliant countryside,a picnic is a must! Mungo and Andy (management team) do a Stirling job of keeping the whole site extremely well maintained & although Mungo keeps a no nonsense approach, which in our view is a positive and it obviously works as we have been coming here for 8/9 years! This beautiful site is not commercialised in any way but is owned by a family who have been trading for many years and have slowly and sympathetically developed the site. Again a very well done to Mungo & Andy.

Too many sites think they can over charge you for a simple grass pitch then try to extort more money out of you charging for extras. We only wanted to stay for the one night but their minimum stay is two nights even during midweek. Then they want extra per night if we have an awning but what really made us drive away was the five pound charge per inflatable paddle board !!!!!!’ Tip to anyone want to avoid this charge is there is a public slipway 100 yards past the ent to the site. Reading other posts about the owner of this site I’m glad I never parted with my hard earned money.

Camped with a group of friends over the weekend. We were welcomed by the guy in charge and he couldn't have been more helpful. Fantastic clean showers and facilities and a lovely area with lots of wildlife.
