An ok site but I can't see anything that special about it aside the lakeview and despite really wanting to like it.

Granted we stayed on the Bank Holiday weekend so it was bound to be busy, but pitches were not well defined so it felt very cramped and it seemed as though a lot of the caravan pitches were taken up by seasonal visitors which gave the feeling that you were intruding on 'their' site.

The facilities were generally good and the staff very helpful but for me the site is too busy and consequently much too noisy.

There are plenty of lovely sites in Scotland and I'm sure this one is ok for some but I won't be returning to it in any great hurry. The price for a non-hookup standard pitch was something like 30 a night which I feel was too high- especially having to pay completely up front and a no refund policy- despite the no refund, I'd had enough after a couple of nights and left 2 nights early.

Awesome. We had a view of the Loch from our caravan window. We seen fantastic sunsets. Rain clouds. Rainbows. Deer. All amazing.

Walked up the Hill with the dogs and what a fantastic view of the whole loch.

Staff were so friendly and helpful, toilets really clean and tidy. Will definitely use again and again.

This park is on the West Highland Way, so you can walk into the village off the roads. Take a boat trip. Lots of lovely little villages and tea shops nearby to visit.

Even my dogs loved it, tied on their leads with the cheeky ducks just measuring the length of the leads to safely walk by.

We visited Cashel for the first time recently. The views are stunning and the site is well kept and in good order. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The toilets and other facilities were excellent, clean, warm and well kept.

We booked a Superior pitch to have the picnic bench. The superior pitches are on the Loch shore and on hardstanding which was not ideal for a tent but didn't cause an issue as we have an extra ground sheet and a tent carpet.

The grassy area for tents is medium sized and set back a little from the shore.

We took a Canoe and had a short paddle to a small island opposite the site where we cooked lunch and explored with the children.

Overall an excellent site, I expect we will visit again.

High point: being pitched right on the loch shore facing a stunning view.

An interesting drive down a narrow lane, 11 miles from the main road, but well worth it. A warm welcome and a fantastic location. If you want a lochside pitch then you must book a premium with a picnic bench, not cheap but the view is superb.

Warm clean toilet block with super showers. Good washing up area. Only one toilet block was open when we were there so cant comment on the older looking one.

Our only negative comments would be the large number of huge 'Hobby' caravans dominating the site which are used as statics. They do seem to take over. The site roads and general feel of the place was a little neglected.

We travelled 365 miles to this site in extremely wet weather but first impressions were good. We found the staff to be very helpful. We were surprised that you could pitch anywhere to the left of the play area. With no marked out standard pitches.

The area for standard pitching was a bit water logged but we were pre warned and this is only to be expected with the variable summer weather!

We pitched near to the shop which was stocked with basics to keep you going. We found all areas to be clean and loved the fact that I could get my two girls showered in a family shower room. Laundry room was also a god send.

Childrens playa rea basic but to be quite honest there is so much exploring to do that it doesn`t create too much of a problem.

We visited Rowardennan because of Ben Lomond walk also lovely walks at the Cashel Forest Centre one min up the road from camp site. Loch absolutely stunning in any weather and despite the months rainfall falling in the week we were here we were outside doing something all the time.

We took a canoe but you can hire them and there are also ferry trips.

Very busy site, very friendly people, staff always there for info and help.

Would definitely go again.

The most important aspect of a great holiday is the friendliness of the staff. This made our short break a cut above the rest.

On pulling up at Cachel, the scenery in front of us was breathtaking, and then were told we could park up anywhere along the Loch edge! It was fantastic. We had sunshine, and got quite a suntan!

The Oaktree pub, 3 miles down the road, was lovely, where we enjoyed haggis and a cream tea in the middle of our bike ride! We have electric assisted bikes - but my battery failed after 6 miles, so it was a hilly walk/ride back again!

All facilities were clean, safe and secure. We will definitely be returning - its our favourite place so far!
