Reviewer: AndygM 1 review from this member

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.

Just back from a weekend here. Very good site for pitching, good grassy areas, and very close to the shore, nice views in the morning. Also a short walk from the Kerrera ferry, which made for an excellent afternoon out.

Facilities. Not the best, I'm afraid. It was a "Dads and Sons" weekend, and we all agreed that the toilets and showers would not have passed the test had our wives been there, in definite need of refurbishment.
Similarly the camp shop. They had stopped selling milk for the season and had reduced opening hours (9-10 and 4-5). It is just me, or is the first week in September still early for reducing your service to such poor levels, there were still quite a few folk on the site.

Very disappointing. The site was clearly overcrowded (although there was space between the tents). There are quite simply not enough facilities for the size of land. Toilets and showers were always busy and consequently not very clean. Washing up facilities a similar story.

Shop fine but Oban only a short drive away where there is a big Tesco and Co-op

Lovely site with fab views! We were pitched right up the top of the camping field. looking down over the rest of the site. Got a bit busy friday/Saturday and this meant noise too but not unbearable.

Only used one of the 3 toilet blocks but it only had 2 showers which caused queues. Even then they weren't up to much. 20p for hair driers

Freezer in campers kitchen not freezing Ice packs properly which was a bit of a headache and the staff in the shop could have been a bit more friendly and accomodating. Laundry room charges 20p for hot water so take change or wash them elsewhere.

From Oban it's about 2 milesof mostly single track road with passing places to get to the site but once you are there it was pretty laid back.

Would definitely use again though.

Nice site with relaxed hosts and decent loch views. Basic games room and freezers etc. but overall clean, well kept and tidy, younger kids may get a bit bored.

In Oban itself a large Tesco and Lidl(surprisingly good stuff)are hidden to the right as you go back into Oban driving away from the harbour and away from Fort William signposts. Not itself very well signed so very expensive first few days until we asked someone. Would definitely go again

Spent two nights here and found the site excellent. Very spacious and peaceful with wonderful views - would definitely return.

Thought there was only one shower and toilet on the first level but later discovered additional facilities up on the next level. Facilities not the best I have seen but certainly quite acceptable and perfectly addequate.

About 3 miles from the centre of Oban where there are plenty of shops and places to eat.
