Very impressed with this site.

We had an extremely warm welcome from all staff on duty when we arrived.

This is a well laid out site with some stunning views.

We could not praise the facilities high enough.

The toilet and shower blocks were cleaned regularly and were always very clean.

(the only reason they ever fell below this standard for a short time was because of the odd inconsiderate camper)

They do take measures to try to control the midgie but as this is Scotland you must accept that is impossible to defeat this pest completely.

They have a pretty well stocked shop, and prices that don't make you wince.

Can't fault the cleanliness of the site (staff cleaned the area regularly and always seemed busy maintaining the site.

If you want to party into the wee small hours, please go somewhere else as this is a site for those who are looking for a more sedate experience.

There are a couple of killer forest walks on the doorstep and you can also experience a few miles of the West Highland Way which passes bvy the front gate.

Definitely plan to return to this site.

Went for the weekend to this site with our tent, really friendly people who run this site.

The site office is set out as a small cafe and shop, where you can get almost anything and the prices are good, you can even order a pizza, or replace camping equipment, very impressed!

The site itself is beautiful, on the banks of the loch it has fantastic views of ben lomond, good hard standing for tourers and access for boats, the site is pet and child friendly with swings etc and lots of water sports for the kids to join in.

Even so it was incredibly peaceful

The shower and toilet blocks are modern clean and welcoming with plenty of hot water.

The pot washing facilities are open so when you are washing your dishes the house martins and swifts are flying in and out just above your heads feeding their young and are not fazed by humans at all, they fly very low to the ground next to the tents to catch insects. You see an amazing variety of birds and the ducks always come around shouting for their breakfast.

The only downside was the weather and the midges

We got bitten from top to toe but I'm ready for them next weekend this time armed with insecticides and candles lol

This is a lovely site. Very peaceful and tranquil - fantastic views of Loch Lommond too!

We stayed here for 6 nights and really enjoyed it. Lots of good walks nearby.

We found the site facilities very good. Showers and toilets were very clean and there was always hot water. One thing we did like was the fact that there was an insect 'zapper' in the toilet block so you could get showered in peace without worrying about getting bitten to death by midges - an absolute must at this time of year!

The wardens on this site are lovely - very friendly and incredibly hard working too - always emptying rubbish, painting and generally keeping the place in tip top condition.

The only down side to this site is that you have to drive approx 11 miles from it to the main road at Drymen before you can set off to visit other destinations. However, it really is a small price to pay for such a lovely site. We would definitely go back again.

My friend and I stayed for three nights at this site during the 'Glasgow Fair' weekend. Despite being a local holiday the site wasn't particularly full - probably due to the poor weather and poor forecasts for the weekend.

I found this to be a pleasant site, some of the problems identified by earlier reviewers regarding the upkeep of the site appeared to have been addressed. The toilet block was clean and well-maintained, although there could be a few more showers perhaps. Good washing up facilities and a well-stocked shop, which is just as well as the site is several miles from the nearest shop (Balmaha).

Lovely views of the loch although the site can't do anything about the idiots on jetskis / speed boats etc who blight the area.

Having stayed both here and at the neighbouring site in the last few months, I think I prefer this site - quieter, and no one revving 4x4s and putting boats out at 6.30am!

Stayed at this site over Easter. Was dubious about what to expect due to recent snow a few days before.

Completely taken by surprise! What a fabulous site, right on the shores of Loch Lomond! Large hard standing pitches with Electric hookup, some with picnic benches. Site had two toilet and shower blocks with dishwashing areas at both blocks. Yes, as said in previous reviews, floors did get grubby due to mud, but mops and buckets were in both, so no excuse not to clean up after use.

Staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful, especially when my Husband felt that river running through site may burst its banks during the bad weather on Easter Monday and block us in. Staff were happy for us to change site, even though it was unnecessary in the end as site did not flood.

Weather was lovely for first few days so had plenty of walks around the Loch and in the Country Park opposite. Our Dog had an exceptional time as he was obviously a mermaid in a previous life. On arrival he saw the water from the window and that was where he flew as soon as we parked.

Local restaurants had menus on site, we did not venture to them as they were about 6 miles away in each direction. Excellent Recycling facilities on site. Plenty of space for children to play as well as a designated playground.

The location is stunning and idyllic right on the edge of Loch Lomond with Ben Lomond in the backround.

We found the site very quiet peaceful and as others have said it is a wee bit remote with the nearest town Drymen (Dri-min) a winding 9 miles away. The west highland way goes past the gate.

In our experience the toilets were very clean with lots of hot water there was also a washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing board.

We had a problem with our awning and the girl at reception came down and helped us to put it together we thought this was very helpful and kind of above the call of duty.

We will be back soon.

To sum up maybe a bit quiet but stunning scenery on Loch Lomond shore.

Have your camera ready all the time as the light changes constantly.

Very steep hill just after Balmaha a mile or two before the site engage low gear and you will not have a problem :)
