Everything about this place was first class. We had simply one of the best pitches overlooking the pier. The staff were excellent too. I'd highly recommend this site to anyone considering a trip to Oban. Cheap as chips and a mile to the town centre. Please steer clear of the Dive Camping Park up the road. I'm not sure I've ever been spoken to like that off a so called service provider before. Laughable but ultimately we're thankful because we ended up coming here instead.

Visited this site for 2 days initially, but ended up staying a week! We both felt that the site was really geared up for campers and we were not just stuck in a corner next to a caravan site.

The site was very spacious, clean and tidy. Very little restrictions from owners. We pitched our tent wherever we wanted and paid afterwards. The site was great for the kids too. Only a small swing park but all the children seemed to meet up there and play around together. We particularly felt at ease as we could see our 3 year old all over the main camping area.

Our only slight niggle was that the toilets and showers didn't really cope on the busy Saturday night but were adequate on all others.

We will definitely be back here, hopefully even at the end of next week!

Just returned from 4 nights at the Oban caravan and camping park. Its a beautiful scenic view from the camp site and the site itself is very relaxing. You couldn't ask for a nicer place to pitch a tent. The site is very relaxed and the owners are polite and helpful.

The shop sells the basic items needed for camping at a reasonable price. The price for a tent pitch is very reasonable at £11 per night without electric. There is a cooking room and a games room with a TV that you can watch if you like which is good to keep the youngsters happy.

The camp site is 2.5 miles out of Oban along a mostly flat winding road along the coast. We took our bikes so we could travel to Oban easily. There are cycle racks outside the tourist information office and harbour carpark to safely lock your bikes and explore the pubs and restaurants of Oban. You could walk to Oban in about 40 mins or get a Taxi which you can get the number from the shop.

The only downside to this site is that the shower and toilet blocks are not up to scratch. There are 3 blocks on the site which all need updating. They are too small and everything is packed in too tightly. 2 shower cubicles and 4 sinks and a couple of toilets are not enough for a modern day tent field on a camp site of this quality.
At least there was a power outlet for you to plug your hair straighteners/shavers in etc. Also a hair dryer for 20p + the showers were free.

Every time I visited the toilet block someone was saying how poor the blocks were and how they let down the site.

Even after experiencing the showers I would return to this camp site because of its quiet and relaxing atmosphere. It was so peaceful we wanted to stay longer but unfortunately couldn't. We will be returning soon.

Loved the site! Brilliant location - with great sea views from nearly all pitches. A great relaxed atmosphere with very friendly staff. Felt very safe - plenty of pitch room even though it was very busy.

The toilets / showers were quite basic and at times there was a small que, this was the only downside - great location, we would return.

Just returned from a 2nd visit to this site with my family. Amazing views from the tent field with very relaxed atmosphere on the site. No bossy owner telling you where exactly you must pitch, we got a ticket and were free to choose our own place in the designated area. Site set on different levels, we were just asked to pitch beyond the children's swings on a large camping field. Only complaint would be that the field is sloping. Facilities were clean. Our dog was welcome but we were asked to keep him on the lead on the site. They didn't charge extra for dogs. Price was v reasonable £10.50 for the 4 of us (one is a baby) Friendly staff. Site had improved a lot since our last visit which was 2002 when new owners had just taken over. Now looks much smarter. Will definitely visit again this summer.

I chose this site as it I was taking my young son and it had a games room (in case of bad weather), a shop on site, shower facilities etc.
I wont ever go back to this site again. The shop was shut and wont open until the end of May, this should have been mentioned on their website. The games room! 1 ripped pool table with only a broken half cue to play with, an empty drinks machine, arcade games clustered together so you couldn't play them. I was told on arrival, by a somewhat unfriendly man, that there was only one shower block open. I tried using the showers, there were 2 showers in the block but only one was working. The 'working' shower was pitiful and unless I wanted a cold shower, and it was only just above freezing outside, I was not going to get a shower at all. The second shower block opened the next day, I only found this out when I noticed another camper going into the previously locked shower block. There was only 5 tents in the whole site, surely it wouldn't have been much of an effort to inform me. 
The ground is poor for pitching a tent, the pegs constantly hitting rocks and making the tent a bit unstable.
I was also charged high season prices, in April?!
The views were nice and the ducks very friendly but nothing else to recommend this camp site.
