Have visited Castle Point for a few years and have always received a warm welcome from the Wardens. This site is very well cared for and is a pleasure to stay on. Smashing showers.

Always have had a great pitch and weather permitting, sitting outside a real pleasure, listening to the sea and birds ( no traffic noise)

Views from around the site, wonderful.

Great walks from the site, my Dog even had his favourite (from Rockcliffe to Kipford, ) followed by pub lunch and ask hubby to pick us up at the pub!

Great area to investigate, the trees and hedgerows in Dumfries and Galloway are spectacular.

This site allows you to relax, read a book, do nothing in peace and quiet, perfect.

Thank you.

Beautifully maintained site. Jackie and Dave are incredibly friendly and helpful. The site is in a beautiful location and covers all units (tents to statics). The toilet/shower block is impeccably clean. Ive now been twice and keep going back for more. Jackie and Dave also provide storage options making it even more helpful to keep going back for more. Love it!

A last minute decision but decided to pop down for one night with the caravan, the site is still spotless and the facilities are clean and very well presented.

The beautiful weather was just the ticket.

Highly recommend this site!

Great site. Very easy check in.

Absolutely fabulous views in the tent area on the top field but please be very thoughtful when considering where to pitch as we were caught out by the fab views meaning we pitched our tent right at the top field for the view as on arrival weather was fab but it didn't take long for this to change and by this it did with the wind, so we ended up on edge because of the force it was coming which led us not being able to venture very far and being prepared for a quick pack up but this has no affect whatsoever on the sites excellent facilities and service. There is plenty in the area to get out and about to see and the nearby town has a few pubs takeaways and convenient stores.

We would definitely return to the site but sacrifice the view and pitch lower down the field.

At least we no our tent can withstand gale force wind 🤗🤗

Lovely position, no hard standing but grass close cut and firm slight slope so needed ramps. We were in lower field good views. Very good shower and clean facilities. Good laundry and wash up room, useful info room with books and guides. Quiet at night when we were there. Walks on coast path from site, but no pub or shop in walking distance. Good walks at Sweetheart Abbey.

Found this via this website. Looking for somewhere with beautiful views and that did not disappoint.

Weather was dry from start to finish which probably affects this review. There's nowhere quite a beautiful as Scotland when it's sunny (or even when its not!)

We pitched on a level site on the upper hill. Electric hookups are dotted around though on the hilly part of the site it's not terribly clear where the pitches are meaning that people locate themselves all over the field. Our car was blocked in at one point. Another time someone pitched right in front of us taking up the view but hey ho that's camping . If pitches aren't clearly marked then all's fair. We gleaned from one of the staff that tents are meant to be 3m away from each other for fire regulations. My recommendation is to pitch with your door facing the fence in the lower half of the field for an uninterrupted view (over the dreaded statics, mind you)

There's a laundry and games room/information room mainly occupied by wifi deprived teenagers with scowling faces - there is wifi on site but like others say, don't rely on it. Come here to get away from it all! There are two areas with football goals - a great idea, and there seemed to be a lot of children playing there. No play area for wee ones, if you are looking for that.

Dalbeattie is only 10 mins drive away for milk/bread etc - there's nothing available on site nor any shops in the nearby hamlet of Rockcliffe. Heartily recommend walking across the bay/tidal causeway at low tide to Rough Island - fabulous views down the Solway Firth.

My main constructive criticism is towards the toilet facilities. It was made to clear to us by the person on duty that the toilets etc in the upper field are for the campers. The showers are large, spacious and modern with great water pressure. One has a shower seat in it for disabled persons. I think there were 2 or 3 showers. However - loos. There are TWO unisex loos plus a male set of toilets - I think there are urinals plus cubicles in the male loos. Therefore there are only two loos that women can use and most of the time I was waiting to go, men came out, as they are the first two you come across as you enter the toilet block. The sinks are in here. So it follows that there are only two sinks and two toilets ALL the women in the campsite can use. Both nights I waited 15 mins just to go to the loo.

Add to that, every time I went in, there was urine all over the seat (sorry guys but it's true), meaning it has really put me off this campsite and I wouldn't return. Specially when I saw the loos for the touring caravans a wee walk down the hill (which you aren't going to do in the pitch dark) had a womens block with 5 or 6 toilets and sinks separately. There's nothing worse than feeling you are second class as a camper!

So to the owners - please could you even put a sign on the Unisex toilets making them female only? (cheap and easy) Could you even put a couple of sinks outside for hand washing/teeth cleaning? or even better, build even just one or two more toilets?
