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,

My favourite site ever. On arrival the staff said I could upgrade to a Loch side pitch for 2. 50 a day and it was worth every penny. Great showers and despite the rain I already miss it. Great pub a couple of miles away in Balloch but the shop is good and they bake to order every morning which was nice. Park could do with a little revamp but overall this is a brill place to have stayed. They even had machines around the site to keep the midges away. We will be back.

When it comes to location, this site is quite superb, with motorhome pitches given three 'ranks' right by the Loch side.

The welcome, and general level of services on site are good, but the access surfaces are in need of repair, and the general appearance is a little tired ( in need of some tender loving care).

As long as you are aware of this, there is nothing to give you reason not to book as I am sure the owners will have the upgrades in mind for the coming year.

Absolutely fantastic campsite, I would highly recommend it. The toilets and shower block are clean and pleasant. The showers are free and actually work, they don't just dribble on you! and the hairdryer actually dries your hair! I have stayed on many campsites and generally speaking the facilities don't compare! The people are friendly and the shop is inexpensive, again a pleasant surprise compared to a lot of other places. Needless to say the scenery is stunning and its great being right on the banks of the Loch. My only complaint would be it would be nice to be able to have small campfires near the tents. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
