WOW! Just WOW! Absolutely stunning site. Peaceful tranquil, we were able to pitch right next to the beach on the lock. Beautiful sunset and scenery. If you want to get away from it all this is the place to come.

Shop on site has necessities although it isn't cheap. Quiet time from 10:30pm to 9am! Great walks from the site. As it is away from any villages you will need transport if you wish to explore the surrounding area rather than by foot.

Toilets and showers are good and free with free hot water etc.

We will definitely be returning.

Just returned from 3 night stay at cashel and must say we loved it. Site basic, toilets and showers were clean. But if you are looking for a few nights away to relax this site is perfect as it has amazing views across the loch, stunning ! Manager drives around on his moped to ensure no problems. Only downside is they put the barrier down at 22:00 so you are locked out, c'mon we are not children if you go out for a meal you have to rush back or you are locked out and have to spend the night in the car park. Also no bins around the site only at the shops. We had a dog with us but had to walk full length of site to put dog poop and rubbish in the bins. Same with chemical disposal, only one point at the shops again had to walk full length of site. I would not let this put you off. I will be returning very soon. Great for quiet break with amazing views. Ps read a few reviews about the state of the roads in the campsite but these were being repaired while we were there. Had a great chilled out break.

Spent one night on here breaking up the journey home, having spent a week on their sister site Glenmore. Its a little more older, basic and smaller, right on Lochs Lomonds shore line, a small shop with supplies with food and equipment for those that might have forgotten something with reasonable prices.

Its a short drive from anywhere nearby, more of a country lane than a main A or B road to get there so expect it to be single track in places. A gate pass is needed to get in and out of the site, but there's not a lot to do nearby other than walking down to the Ben Lomond centre which is a starting point to hiking up Ben Lomond or head back into the small town where you'll find the usual stuff like pubs and a few shops, but you'll probably want to drive there rather than walk.

No playground on site for kids if that's what you are looking for, but if you keep your eyes open around dusk you may be lucky enough to see a Pine Martin crossing the road heading towards tents looking for food when we were there.

Can be a bit windy & chilly when its blowing across the Loch onto the site with not a lot of shelter from it.

The main positive about this site is the amazing loch-side location. We were lucky enough to bag a pitch with an unforgettable view - there is no guaranteed reservation so we were lucky. Facilities are good with showers in main toilet block clean and warm. Site was extremely windswept and this might be worth noting - we were unable to bbq or sit outside - it was April I guess.

Site is well situated - we climbed Ben Lomond and loved the island at Balmaha (Inchcailloch). Oak Tree Inn worth visiti g - pub at Drymen also very good.

Only negative is pot-holes on entering and leaving (wouldn't take much to repair?).

This is my 3rd time visiting Cashel and was very disappointed. My last visit was four year ago(2012) and it looks like nothing has been done in four years. When we arrived we were half way through checking in when the woman left to chase a couple off the site as they had started to walk through the campsite. Turns out the couple were staying on site! Then we found out that if we want a pitch at the front you have to pay extra. I had booked online and this option was not available on the website. Next up was the drive down to the pitch it was like a 4x4 test track with the amount of deep pot holes. The pitch was nice and flat and the view across loch Lomond is amazing. The main toilet block is now very tired, the showers were very dirty, black mould covering most of the silicon. The paint on the roof was peeling off and mouldy, the shower curtains were very dirty and there was a used plaster sitting on the top of the shower for the 2 days I was there(used the same shower for as it was the cleanest of the 4 available). The flooring was dirty and lots of cob webs etc. There is no motorhome service point, no hose to fill the water tank etc. This could be a great site as the location is fantastic but a lack of investment in the road and facilities is taking the shine off it. I was expecting more from a camping in the forest campsite.

We really enjoyed the location. 2. 50 per night for the loch side location was well worth the money

Many of the pitches were let as seasonal pitches. Very few tourers seemed to be visiting when we were there although it was half term in Scotland.

As mentioned by another reviewer the roads do need some repair. This was very evident after heavy rain. Toilets and showers were kept clean but some work needed to maintain standards

The wardens were very pleasant and helpful

Could walk the West Highland way from the site. We preferred the walk to Rowardennan, although there were some steep sections.

Good road to Rowardennan and spacious car park when we took the motorhome out and tried to climb Ben Lomond. Unfortunately weather was not good and we retreated.

We thought the area could be very busy in summer and were pleased it was so quiet,
