The friendliest thing here were the midges.

We're new to motorhoming and had joined the Caravanning & Camping Club top get access to their Sites. Some of our friends had told us that C & C could be quite prickly from time to time. This Site was a good example:

We were interrogated about our age and had to produce documentation to prove we were over 55. No other C & C site had asked for this.

We were told to stay off grassed areas by staff, in spite of their not being any signs of restricted access.

The Site is located next to Loch Lomond and appeared to have been designed specifically to aid midges in their breeding - lots of shade, trees and water. The toilets were OK, apart from the numbers of drowned midges round the sinks, but getting there was a nightmare. Space is also restricted and there wouldn't have been room to put up our awning.

We stayed here in our tent over the bank holiday at the end of May but ended up with a pitch at the end of the campsite (due to it being a large pod tent) which was very close to the A82 and therefore very noisy from the road.
We also had a tent and caravan between us and Loch Lomond so we didn't have a great view. Some pitches are very close to the loch edge with stunning views but most seemed to be with electric hookups or for smaller tents. There also didn't seem to be as much road noise along the loch edge.

There had been quite a bit of rain prior to our visit and while we were there and although muddy in a couple of places the grass was just very wet rather than muddy which was good. The road through the campsite has been resurfaced as well so easy to drive through.

The toilets and showers were good and very clean. There is a small shop on the campsite and a well stocked shop in the village. The meal that we had at the Village Rest on Sunday night was OK but not brilliant.

The village of Luss is lovely to walk round and there's a 6 mile walk up Beinn Dubh from the village which on a good day will provide fantastic views of Loch Lomond and the surrounding area. We went up there when it was raining and with clouds skimming the hill tops and still saw great views. It can be extended into a longer walk as well. The beach along side the campsite is lovely and clean with beautiful views over the loch.

For child friendliness I can't really comment as we don't have kids, however there was a small play area with a slide and some swings. I'm sure the beach would keep them entertained for hours though and there was a number of kids there who seemed very happy.

We chose this site for our first outing with our first ever caravan.

The site staff were all very friendly and helpful. The loos and showers were spotless. The lochside setting is beautiful but there is some road noise.

In Luss the shop was very well stocked , both food and some camping kit. The Colquhoun Arms is shut for refurbishment, reopens in May.

All in all a lovely site, would recommend it.

This is the best site I have visited in 3 years of caravanning (being newbies we have never been at home). It's right on the shores of the fantastic Loch Lomond.

The staff are very very friendly a credit to this site, Julian one of the staff couldn't be more helpful a star. The showers are clean and well maintained at all times.

Luss is small place but a shop and a pub is all you need. Midges yeh! yeh! yeh! don't let them get to you just enjoy your stay. Will be returning again and again. Andy and Jan.

Easy to find the site, just after the village of Luss, off the main road. Beautiful location, pitches for small tents with Loch view, large site with excellent facilities. Electric hook up available around the site and tent / caravans mixed together rather than segregated as they are on many sites.
Shower block regularly cleaned, never any need to queue for shower. Small play area for children, 2 shower blocks with 6 showers each, toilets and wash cubicles. Each block also had washing facilities - large room with 3 sinks / draining areas. Facilities seemed really new and are by far the best we have experienced.

Other visitors friendly - several came to help us move our half erected tent when the owner came to tell us we had pitched it too close to the adjacent caravan!Staff helpful - even gave us tin foil to bbq fruit in!

Several small beach areas on the site which people were using for bbq's but there were far too many midges by the water for us. Cycleway along the Loch from just outside campsite. Luss is a pretty village with a spar type shop for all your basic needs. There were quite a lot of midges as the weather was hot but Avon skin so soft seemed to help (and is sold at the small site shop). Only downside was some road noise at night but you are right next to A82.

Excellent facilities and warm reception mean we would stay there again even given the road noise.

Yes it rained, Yes the midges had a feast on the husband BUT we had a wonderful time!

To be greeted after a 6 hour journey with a warm welcome from the wardens only enforced our belief that we had chosen the right site for our holiday. The facilities were always spotless, the wardens and helpers cheerful (despite the dreadful weather on a couple of occasions) and the site itself very well maintained. Perhaps the only downside was the state of the potholes on the site roads, however, as a fellow camper informed us it had rained every day for a fortnight so there wasn't much chance of any real maintenance being carried out in those two weeks.

The village of Luss is very easy to walk to and we can recommend the Village Rest for a really good meal. Did not eat at the Colquhoon Arms but enjoyed a convivial evening there.

We would certainly return to this site again.

PS and the views of the loch were lovely as well.
