Stayed here for one night in early June with the kids. We are infrequent campers so I can't compare it against other sites but for us it was fine. The site was quiet and there is plenty of space between tents. At least 6 metres for fire regs. The shop on site was small but stocked plenty of chocolate which is needed if it gets a bit chilly. There is also a very small/cosy bar attached to the shop that looked child friendly if you need somewhere to relax a bit. We didn't go in there but there seems to be a resident singer who likes to get folk involved. The shower block is nice and clean. Unfortunately the water in the men's shower block was cold in the morning but my other half had a roasting shower in the women's block so maybe the boys just lucked out that day. The Aviemore area is very good with many and varied activities for kids and adults alike. My four kids did Kayaking on Loch Morlich and they really loved it. Plenty shops, bars and restaurants in Aviemore which truly is a year round resort. Overall a great little site in a superb location. We will definitely go back and I would recommend it to other families.
