My wife and I visited this site over Jubilee weekend, we were unsure what to expect having read mixed reviews but I have to say that we were pleasantly surprised with both the site and it's surroundings.

Access was remarkably easy, just a couple of minutes from Junction 9 off M9, we were met by staff who were extremely friendly, even invited us to their party !

The site is square and around the perimeter are a number of statics and tourers obviously sited there for the season. The touring vans, tents etc go in the middle on a part sloping site with the playground directly in front.

There are two toilet/ shower blocks, one at the entrance and one at the top of the site, although neither was very far to walk. Both are somewhat old fashioned but were clean with ample hot water. There are plenty of hook ups and water taps quite near.

Whilst most users of this site appear to be seasonal pitch holders, it is equally a great site for tourists. There is an excellent walk from just outside the site down quiet lanes which affords wonderful views over the Ochil Hills and as far as the Trossachs.

Stirling is a 5 minute drive away and there are numerous other attractions, including the Carron valley and, our reason for being there, the Falkirk Wheel, an amazing structure, well worth a visit.

In June the tariff was £11 plus £3 for electrics which seemed very reasonable as the site had all the amenities we required, Despite it being a bank holiday weekend it was very quiet and peaceful and there was no noise from the several families on site.

Being so handy to so many tourist attractions, we were amazed that the site wasn't busier, it deserve to be. It would make an excellent base for anyone visiting that part of Scotland or wanting a stopover en route North to, or South from, the Highlands. We liked it immensely and found it ideal for our needs.

Stayed on this site plenty of times during 2009/2010 on route to Glasgow and South. Value for money, cheap and cheerful!

Motorhomes and campervans might need levelling chocks if you have to park on the sloping areas.

Easy to find, just of the Motorway.

Toilet blocks could do with a little bit of upgrading but otherwise it's an OK site. Hook-ups good but I thought you needed three hands to make a safe connection, or lose one of yours when attempting it !

PS - No Shops - No Beaches - No Bars. Stirling and Safari Park not far away.

Strange one this. Having read the reviews about this site I arrived feeling happy about it ,but on seeing it I have to admit to being disappointed. After setting up the van I then moved my car & promptly stood in dog mess! I asked the warden to have it taken away & she said she would see to it, but it was still there when we left next day.

On the plus side,the site is easily located & the entrance is well signposted. The play area was vacated by 22.30 & the noise that comes with it vanished too.

The toilets were fine & the site would be even better if it was updated & some time/money spent on it.

Dog doo apart it was OK, but no better than.

Just back from a one night stay at this site. It was our first camping trip so didn't want to go far and this site was excellent. Small but quiet. Managed to get a pitch for our 6 man tent with hook up for £14 - bargain. Kids played at small playpark while we struggled to put tent up! Warden was lovely.
Kids played outside til 1030 and no-one minded and up a playpark for 8am and again no-one minded. No shop or eating facilities but we didn't mind. Showers small and compact but clean. Would recommend if wanting a small and quiet site

We stopped here on route to Fort William and rang to ask if spaces were available to be told "just turn up".

We did just that and a friendly warden appeared. £11 for the night was a bargain and the site was ok.

Everything was clean and tidy if not a touch 'old-style' but still, for £11 a night, we've seen and used much worse.

As a simple site goes - this is great!
