If you want to get away from it all and have some quiet time this is the place. It really is in the forest with pitches for units on terraces going up higher through the site. The pitches themselves were a bit rough, just hardcore not slabs or concrete and some a bit small for big units like ours (7. 5m. But no real problems.

The river bounds one side of the site and the forest is all around. Endless walks and cycle routes so take an OS map if you want to go exploring. Aberfoyle is about 2 miles walk through the woods and takes 45-60 mins or else an 8 min cycle on a road bike down the national cycle route bordering the A81.

The facilities are adequate with a separate shower block with 4 units. It wasn't busy so no problems but I could imagine that at peak times there could be queues. And the dreaded 10 second push button showers !

Remember you are in the forest and there will be lots of insects, mainly of the flying variety. So keep the nets closed especially at night and take a flyspray.

Stayed for a couple of nights over a weekend. Excellent welcome by wardens who were friendly and accommodating. This is a busy site and when we were staying there were a lot of kids. However, they were all well behaved and didn't cause any problems. The only 'issue' was that most of them were staying in tents, so when the sun came up in the morning - so did they - at 600am! Not complaining though. Just be aware as tents are mixed with tourers and motorhomes in the short stay area.

The site is in a great area for walking biking and other outdoor type of stuff. Good food in Aberfoyle and not too expensive either. I would recommend the Forth Inn.

When my new grand daughter is old enough it will be great place to take her.

Just back from a last minute weekend stay here. Site was busy with loads of kids playing. Staff helpful and toilets/showers very clean. Cracking walks in the area and not enough time to do them all. Will definitely be back to do more later in the year. Cracking site especially for dog walkers. Dog walk straight out of the site and a nice walk of about 1. 5mls into Aberfoyle. That was our first visit here but won't be the last.

Stayed just for one night but had booked for two. Site was really busy although the facilities coped.

Site is in a lovely spot about 45 mins walk from Aberfoyle. The walk to aberfoyle along the river is definitely something to do whilst you are there.

Warm welcome from the owners who gave very clear information on where to pitch. As mentioned the site was very busy due to the warm weather weekend. Pitch was spacious.

Toilets and showers clean with plenty of hot water.

Midges were really problematic from 9pm through to the small hours. Unbearable to be outside or have the doors of the tent open. The setting contributes to this (trees, vegetation and river) combined with time of year and perfect windless weather conditions. If you do visit consider bringing everything you can to keep them at bay because it could spoil your visit.

Would return early Spring or early autumn. The setting is beautiful, the facilities good, and the town of aberfoyle has enough to do in to pass time. Lots of attractions within 30 minutes drive (lochs, safari park, Stirling castle).

We camped with friends on a wet & dreary May weekend. The campsite wasn't full, but there were a few others camping. First impressions - it's a lovely site - neat, tidy & ongoing work to keep it nice & make it better ongoing without taking away from the enjoyment of the site. The staff are very friendly & helpful. There's a small children's play area although our wee one was too small to enjoy it he was drawn to it. The toilets & shower facilities were good - no payment required for a hot shower! Dish washing facilities were good too! The village of Gartmore is a mile away, although it takes a bit to walk there as its all uphill - it's an easy walk back! We would definitely camp there again!

Just got back from our first trip to this wonderful site and we can't wait to go back!

All pitches are clearly marked out, the facilities were spotlessly clean every day and even when the site got busy we still didn't have to queue for showers. We walked every day along a different path (although the river walk is a fave) and all the walks are great for dogs. Weather was lovely all week and we didn't have any problems with midges. Staff were great especially the one who gave us a loan of the fishing equip!)

Highly recommend the walk to Aberfoyle-go along the cycle track which starts just outside the site (over the bridge) it used to be a railway line. Come back to the site along the same track but this time take a right hand turn (at the Rob Roy Hotel) across a field and over a bridge - beautiful views and we got to see Red Kites flying overhead!
