I might actually say this is the best site I've ever stayed on. The local area is stunning, and so quiet. Amazing views. There is a nice shower/toilet block and the local village is lovely and useful. The owner was very friendly and helpful, always had time to chat and he obviously loves what he does. I really can't think of a negative. Highly recommend!

We stayed here last week and from the moment we arrived the owner was very pleasant and helpful. Picked out the best pitch for our tent, and showed us all the facilities.

We had electric hook up and the ground despite previous rain was not saturated and well drained.

The views are fantastic and so quiet, plenty of wildlife to look out for.

We were pitched up near to the main toilet and shower block which were clean and well maintained, always plenty of hot water and wonderful power showers. The washing facility was also very clean too. There was a lounge area that we could use to sit in and watch tv if you wanted. Although we did not use the newer shower block, we did look around it and looked very good too, in this block there is also a sitting area with a lovely wood burning stove that would be ideal to sit and relax by.

There is a children's play area to that looked appealing to younger children.

Less than 5 minutes drive is the town of Dungiven, with two supermarkets, the Eurospar has the cheapest petrol prices that I noticed in the area, the other store further up the road, was larger and had more stock with an off licence too.

The owner was always around and very approachable should you need anything, his knowledge of local amenities and history is excellent, and enjoyed the conversations with him of an evening.

The temperature dropped in the evening during our stay, and he lent us a very welcomed duvet to lay over the top of our bedding.

It cannot go unmentioned of our regular 'guest' Ben, the very friendly and popular campsite dog, as the site was quiet we got most of his company!

We would certainly recommend this site to anyone looking to explore the area, Belfast was a little over an hours drive, Antrim Coast 40 mins, Londonderry 30 mins, lots of walks nearby too. Not sure who was more saddened at leaving at the end of the week, us, the owner or Ben, one thing for sure, we will come back!

Stayed here for six days end of august, very quiet and peaceful excellent place to just chill out, everything was very well kept toilets, showers etc. Were spotless, if like me you have no transport then you have a walk of a couple of miles to dungiven, the local taxi will cost you 3, 00 same as a pint of Guinness, I would certainly go back to hillfoot campsite, one last thing the prices were really good.

From the moment we arrived at the site we could not have felt more welcome. The owner, and his lovely dog, Ben, showed us to our pitch, which was close by the showers and toilets, and there is also a handy water standpipe. The site is very well tended and the owner was often to be seen doing little jobs or mowing the grass. He is always happy to stop for a chat and is a mine of information for places to visit. The toilets and showers were spotless and the water plentiful and hot. On one of our last nights we felt like having a little fire, and the owner supplied us with the brazier and also the wood. We felt very welcome and safe here, and the owner is very conscious of keeping the site quiet at night.

Dungiven is handy for a little supermarket for your shopping needs. Our two little girls were made to feel very welcome and there was a little swing and slide set which they played on to their heart's content. They also loved Ben. We travelled to Benone beach a couple of times which is Blue flag with lifeguards. The views were spectacular. Be aware, that it does get VERY busy and cars park quite low down to the shore and sometimes had to be moved as the tide came in! Having a National Trust membership we took advantage of it and visited Carrick-a-Rede bridge and also Giant's Causeway, which were lovely as we had a brilliant 2 weeks unbroken sunshine.

We also took the children to Belfast for a day trip and visited Titanic Experience, which was fabulous, but not cheap. Also on our itinerary was a visit to Derry city, which had a lovely atmosphere and there was a food festival on when we went. We didn't have the time to travel further West, but County Donegal was very enticing in the distance. We would definitely stay here again if we visit this part of NI again.

Excellent location with stunning views. A lovely small site with both caravan/camper and tent pitches. Electric hookup available at a reasonable cost. The camping pitches are flat and spacious. The toilet and shower block is good although the shower temperature can be a bit erratic, they are free however so no real complaints there. There is even a tv room/lounge to keep the kids occupied as well as a children's play area. Ben the dog greets everyone on arrival and spends time with you while you pitch your tent, he is very friendly and mild mannered but soon moves on if there is no food available, although he will check back regularly to see if you are cooking. The site owner, is always on hand when needed. He seems to appear as if by magic when you need him and readily offers advice and information about the surrounding area/attractions. We spent two nights at this site and would have stayed longer had we not pre-booked the next site.

Overall an excellent site which is very quiet at night. A great base from which to explore the Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the Bushmills Distillery. I wouldn't recommend the Gaint's Causeway & Bushmills Railway unless you are a big fan of trains/trams, it is very slow and uncomfortable and parking at the Causeway works out cheaper (for a group of 3 or more) if you don't mind driving. Another thing worth noting about visiting the Causeway, it appears that you have to pay to get to it by going through the visitors centre but you can access it for free if you aren't bothered about a guided tour. Also, there is a bus that takes you to the Causeway for one euro from behind the visitors centre or you can walk down the road for no cost.

Just back from a few days camping at this site. Can say not one thing wrong about it. Lovely flat ground. Owner and ben fantastic so helpful. Other campers very friendly. Great facilities. Its a hidden gem shops only ten mins away. There is lovely walks and scenery around it. You have the mountains on one side and the valley on the other. Was very quiet. All in all a really lovely campsite. Will definitely go again.
