Had a lovely stay at Kippford Holiday Park. Park is on a hill but all pitches are level because they are all tiered. Site is immaculately kept and landscaped.

We were on pitch 25 near accessible toilets which were heated and very clean. You are quite near the road on this pitch which is fully serviced with water electric and tv point. Road is not that busy and did not disturb us.

Site has a healthy rabbit population which interested our terrier and lab.

Site has a shop that sells essentials.

Nice woodland dog walk but not for the less mobile.

Adventure playground and park for the kids.

Kippford is lovely right on the estuary lovely views and nice dog walk along front which takes you to some secluded beaches. Dog friendly pubs where you can get a meal.

Dalbeatie has a few shops supermarket and takeaway both fish and chips and Chinese.

In all we had a good trip although weather could have been a bit better. The park was fine but we found there wasn't enough to do in the area so won't be returning to this area.

Despite booking 2 months before arrival we were allocated a pitch 50m from the entrance and 10m from the busy road which passes the door! Traffic noise, even at 5, 00 p. M. , was unbearable. I guess that, as we were only staying 2 nights, they thought it would be o. K.

Consequently we were located at the opposite side of the site to the showers / chemical waste facilities. There was a loo closer.

We had hoped to have a quiet stay before a long journey home. Two hopes: No hope and Bob Hope.

Having booked for 2 nights we stayed just one.

If booking, make sure you get a good pitch. The road noise, during the day, is constant.

Pros:

Very scenic and well-laid out making the most of a steep hill. Each pitch between hedges with it's own pic-nic bench/table etc.

Good shop

Lots of rabbits for our dog to watch.

Easy 10 mins walk down to village with 2 dog -friendly pubs and reasonable prices.

Nice woodland walks above site.

Cons:

Some steep climbs for the less fit.

Relatively expensive.

Pitches too short for Motorhomes exceeding say 21 feet in length.

Stayed here with friends; we camped others had lodges or used their camper vans.

The site is meticulously tidy and well kept, the staff are all very friendly and the facilities are brilliant. There is even a wee shop selling basics and fresh bread at good prices. At 22/night for a pitch I'd say that was great value. Every pitch includes electric hookup and showers are also included in the cost. Arranged like the hanging gardens of Babylon, I'd say there wasn't a single site / pitch at the same elevation throughout.

I guess my disappointment was with the camping pitches which, whatever the site says, are only grassy on the perimeter and otherwise bare gravel-like substrate for the rest. This really gets everywhere if you aren't careful and will definitely shorten your groundsheet's life if you don't use a full groundsheet protector. We had the biggest pitch on the site 8x8m; the rest are all much smaller and would only really accommodate an average family tent before you fell off the the side of the pitch.

Overall it feels like the camping pitches are an addition rather than a reason. Some of them are right next to the road and others are by the entrance and would suffer from constant glare as traffic enters the site. The road adjacent isn't very busy so, in that respect, we didn't suffer from any noise sufficient to disturb our sleep.

If you rent a lodge / static van, have a tourer or camper van you will give this site 10/10. As a camper I can only give it 6/10; the 4 missing points being due to the gravel pitches.

Lovely site. Excellent facilities. All clean and well maintained. Nice friendly welcome at reception. Staff really helpful. They came across as people who liked what they were doing.

It's an interesting site on a hill, but pitches are level because it's all terraced. I liked this site a lot and would definitely recommend. There are lovely woodland walks nearby, 2 nice pubs in Kippford and you can walk along the estuary and enjoy the views too. Couldn't fault this site.

Very nicely kept site - recommended to us by the Ironman athlete butcher in Dalbeattie. Nicely laid out on several levels with walks to Kippford and the coast and easy access to the forest and cycle routes. Nice toilet blocks and a great wee shop that sold really tasty fresh croissants each morning.

It was a bit pricey at 24 a night for 2 in a small motorhome but otherwise little to criticize at all.
