“Very nice park in great loch side location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

The site is well set out and well maintained. Our static caravan was brand new, well equipped ( apart from no iven gloves) and spotlessly clean. Rather small though, bed was a small double and seemed to have been sized to fit the tiny room.
Great deck and lovely views over loch.
Not much to do in the area when it rains which it did plenty. Good job we had free wifi. We enjoyed kayaking in the loch when it wasn't raining. Staff were very friendly.

We went on a family holiday camping here for a week and from the start we were happy. The site is very clean. There are toilets, showers, dish washing facilities, the shop has most the things you need and the staff are very helpful.
Our daughter who is 3 had plenty to do, there was a small park with a sand pit, and she loved it on the boats (We took our own) but you can hire them, or a pedlo, or even a kayak.
We spent sometime fishing, an the lake was beautiful.
All in all we had a great week and can't wait to go back,

we arrived a little over noon' to be greeted by very cheerful staff who explained all the site amenities, and kindly showed us to our pitch.
Once settled we took our dog for a stroll around the area reserved for dog walking and what an area a 15 ft mown edge around a large field with access to the loch which was fantastic as our dog just loves the water, and this saved us from annoying the fishermen who were along the shore further up, it was great to see the kids/adult kids :") playing on the rope swing dropping into the loch, (something you rarely see these days, there are waterborne craft to hire, along with outdoor table- tennis, chess , five aside pitch , sandpit, etc .
the toilet /shower block was pristine, and all bins were emptied on a regular basis by the wardens,
this site is a treasure, and all credit to the staff for maintaing a fantastic campsite, I hope to return on our september break.

We pitched a tent for a couple of nights and although it poured most of the weekend, when it was dry, it was wonderful. The fishing was great and the pitch was super. The facilities are excellent and the atmosphere was super, with all the kids running about playing together.
There are boating facilities and water sports, although we didn't use them there was a lot of activity.
We'll definitely be back soon!

We have been back here for the last 4 years & it is just fab.

Beautiful setting with spectacular views over the loch, facilities are all clean & modern with everything we needed. The staff are really friendly and the whole atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. Great for water sports (Loch Ken Ski school just down the road is brilliant for wakeboarding). Dogs and kids all really welcome. We will be back again.
