Arriving at this site early in April it was very clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The shop had not yet opened being so early in the season. Enquiring about the nearest shop, as we needed an onion we were given one, along with some delicious free range eggs.

Whilst the toilets blocks are clean and tidy they are getting a little tired.

Being early in the year the grass was in very good condition. The pitches are large and it all feels very spacious.

The site is in a good position for exploring the area and its possible to have car free days.

We would return to this site.

Stayed for a few nights in August in the motorhome.

The site, for us, is in a great location, comfortable walk in to Oban and the views are fantastic. We found the staff to be extremely pleasant and friendly. The grass etc is well kept on the site.

The big downside is the facilities ie showers, toilets etc. They are wholly inadequate in terms of numbers, and are in major need of updating. The staff are great in my opinion, but you can only work with what you've got, and these facilities are in desperate need of attention.

Touring the western highlands we chose Oban campsite as it was next to the water (we planned to do some canoeing) and had a play area for our 2 young children.

On arrival we found reception was closed between 11am-4pm, unusual in peak season. We picked a pitch in accordance with instructions on the reception door and set up camp.

After an hour we where told to move our tent as we were in the wrong area, despite the map stating that area was jetty camping (ideal for canoeists). We did as requested with no fuss (except from the children) and set up on another pitch. I have to say we found the staff very unhelpful and quite rude. We had planned to stay longer but did not feel welcome.

The facilities are somewhat lacking for a large campsite. I had to queue for 30 minutes in the morning with my young daughter for a shower and the queue for the toilets went out of the shower block and almost around the side.

The children did enjoy the swings and it is a beautiful location. I do not however feel I could recommend this campsite to anyone.

Lovely looking site let down by the facilities, showers and toilets need seriously upgrading thought site was expensive and will not be returning.

We stayed three nights at the end of our holiday, we probably would not have stayed that long had we not paid up front and also that we wanted to spend a day wandering around Oban, which was very worthwhile.

The site could do with having a few rules regarding pitching distances as we ended up with a tent pitched less than 10 feet from our tent on our last night, even though listening to a large family trying to pitch a brand new out of the bag tent was very amusing.

Just back from a 4 night stay at this site. What can I say. Location, facilities, staff, etc, etc all 1st class. First visit to this site and will return and recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to go in the area.

Yes, there was grass in toilet areas and yes, there was lack of hot water but it still did the job and toilets were cleaned at least twice a day.

Enjoyed the fact of not accepting big all sex groups as the campsite was very peaceful at night.

Views were spectacular.

2nd visit to the site. Last visit 6 years ago and nothing we could see has been changed. We stayed for 4 nights which was 3 too many but we paid upfront.

Positives Location is stunning with open views, grass is well kept, location to Oban. And that's about it.

Negatives Staff are rude and unhelpful the majority of the time. Prices aren't very reasonable for the standard of facitlities. Regular staff patrols round the park in noisy diesel engine cars including one at 11pm. Grass is cut regardless of weather and cut grass is a permanent feature in all the toilet blocks regardless of time of visit. Never encountered any cleaning being undertaken in any of the facilities. Dish washing area is only partly covered by roof and water is warm to tepid.

This site is not one we will be going back to as I would rather give my hard earned cash to someone who actually cares if you have an enjoyable stay. Not this lot of money grabbers! :-(
