This is a fantastic campsite! The toilet block was extremely clean, with showers. The staff were very helpful and friendly, providing details of how to get to Callander as well as local walks. The campsite is fairly enclosed so it's safe for kids to play around. There is also a small playground to keep them occupied. Very close to Glasgow - nice to get away but not to have to travel too far. Would definitely recommend and will be going back for another break next Spring/Summer.

Stayed for May bank holiday Weekend. All booking was done online with no problems. Did think the site was a little expensive and a lot more than we normally pay but other sites were fully booked.

On arriving on the site we were met with a warm welcome. The site was small but full of charm. Located next to a lovely river. With loads of walks on your doorstep. If your into cycling this is a great location for you. With loads of well signposted cycle paths just outside the site.

Toilets and showers are kept to a very high standard by the staff. The site has a small playground but our 6 and 8 year old were not very impressed but did make quite a few friends and had a great time. The grass pitch we were on had a few drainage issues and was only about 85% grass rest was very bare.

All in all, a very lovely site with ideal walking and cycling on your doorstep. It's only real down side was at 76 for two nights quite expensive. I do believe if your in the caravan and camping club it's cheaper.

Another site to add to our favorites!

The warm and welcoming greeting set up the standard of care from the off at this site. Very informative about all that's to do in the area, including all the walks/bike rides accessible from the site. Mentioned that I had my GPS. And was pointed to a poster by the door that gives you co-ords for Coblelands very own geocache hidden in the woods [a bonus in my books!]They told us about an organised easter egg hunt that was taking place on the Sunday if our lad was interested. There were also scavenger hunt sheets and a wild life sheet too.

All facilities were spotless and well looked after. We had asked for a hard standing pitch, and were surprised at how big the individual pitches were.

When our son came off his bike on the second day of our week stay[just round the corner from the site] and broke his arm, the staff were great, gave us ice and ice blocks and even signed his cast once he'd visited two of the areas hospitals.

There is plenty to do in the local area and further afield if you so wish.

Stunning spot, scenery, dog walks and caches galore!

We can't rate this site or staff highly enough. Wish I could give 20/10 for the overall rating.

We will make a return visit that's for certain.

Happy to recommend the site highly. Stayed here so OH could attend a day at Nick Nairn's cook school at nearby Port of Menteith. Fees reduced for C&CC members. We had a warm welcome from Graham, one of only two Managers. We'd booked hardstanding (same price as grass), but most of the hardstands are on a higher platform cut into the wooded hillside which feels like a large car park. So we asked to move down to the lower more open sunny grassy area. No midges, surprisingly. Ample recycling; there's a MH grey water dump; there's also a Teepee with nature-related interest; and you're invited to help yourself to the cooking herbs growing by the office. Spotless toilet block - though there are so many notices about saving water / keeping quiet after 11 / not burning wood, that you do blank them out. Midweek the site was quiet and relaxing. Less restful at the weekend, as the site was popular with many families pitched together; the older children enjoy themselves running, cycling and playing football in large noisy groups; the parents talk on loudly well past midnight; and the babies wake at dawn. The joys of camping! But when a child started pressing a car horn continuously, the site manager literally ran to put a stop to the noise, still wearing his toilet-cleaning rubber gloves.

The site is great for dog walking, the chunky leaflet about the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park is very useful as it shows dozens of walks - the Blue trail then the Green trail up to Doon Hill makes a good hour's loop from the site. Also shown is the Three Lochs Forest Drive on the A821 out of Aberfoyle, well worth the 2 toll (allow most of the day), with lots of waymarked trails and cracking views. The Mhor Bakery in Callender makes a range of fantastic bread; the proper butcher in Aberfoyle comes recommended; the run out to Stronachlachar is worthwhile especially if this co-incides with the arrival of the steamship from the Trossachs pier; or take bikes on the ferry from Trossachs pier to Stronachlachar and cycle back to the car on the path along the north shore of Loch Katrine; and you can walk part of the West Highland Way if you continue on to Inversnaid on Loch Lomond. Loads more cycle paths and there's a Go Ape at The Lodge visitor centre north of Aberfoyle.

Great site, especially for kids. The playground is small but well maintained and suitable for 3+, rangers come in regularly and put on great activities for kids (we built rafts and then raced them down the river). There are also wildlife trails and scavenger hunts to keep them busy. Facilities are very clean and well looked after. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Surrounding area has lots of things to do.

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.
