Stayed here in a motorhome on our last night of our trip, very friendly welcome from warden and given our pitch which was hard standing down by the river and near the facilities. Facilities were immaculate and warm. Walked into Aberfoyle in the afternoon down a Tarmac path by the river for a look around and in the evening got the free mini bus to the local pub (recommended and leaflet given by warden ) where we had a fabulous meal and drinks and then brought back to the site. Fabulous site and I'm sure we will return.

3rd visit to this site over a few years and consistently to a good standard. This time in our motorhome, previous visits in our caravan. Wardens welcome is great, we had booked a hard standing pitch but wanted to be down near the river this time, wardens changed our pitch no problem. Main area beside river is mostly grass pitches in a large field but benefits from less tree shade hence more sun ( when it comes out) compared to other pitches which are terraced and on higher ground. Down side of this is, if in a tent, some pitches don't fully drain that well after rain. Site has had some upgrading since last visit mostly due to hard work of wardens with some improved landscaping and planting. Motorhome service point at entrance just after warden’s office, with drain down facilities, drinking water and grey water disposal. Great walks from the site into surrounding forests and paths to Aberfoyle (approx. 20min walk Co-Op store, pub/ hotel /garden centre/cafe's, petrol station), including tarmac cycle path on opposite side of river (takes you past Rob Roy Hotel, good food/drink). Use my own facilities on board but had a look and toilet block was very clean. Chemical waste point (with hand sanitiser is a nice touch) and pot wash areas adjacent to toilet block. If you want a quiet pitch choose one of the hard standing pitches up on the terraces, otherwise the main field which is a bit noisier ( kids play area etc. ) but not a problem really for us when we visited. Not the cheapest, but standard price for Camping in the Forrest site, you get a discount for Camping and Caravan Club members.

Lovely camp site with the river forth running down 1 side

Toilet block and shower block very clean, didn't have to wait once to use showers. Small playground for kids my 10 year old son enjoyed playing with other kids. We were allowed to fish in the river within the camp site as part of the price for camping but with no success (Can't blame the camp site for that though). Several walks in the surrounding area Aberfoyle approx 1/2 hour walk along cycle path with pubs and shops etc. Well situated for touring around central Scotland and the Trossachs even did a trip to Oban one day. Very peacful and relaxing very helpful and friendly warden answered any questions we had about the area. Only slight criticism the site has a policy of silence from 11pm, I thought that 10pm would be more suitable. This wasn't an issue most of the time as everyone was very considerate of each other and seemed to settle down from 9pm but unfortunatly on one of the nights one of the familys didn't seem to take much notice of this and had to be asked to be quiet at about 11:30 (To be fair they were quiet after this and settled down earlier every other night)But it was peace and quiet the rest of the time. Will certainly visit again.

Had a couple of nights here in Mid October. Weather was superb, if a bit cold at night. This is a really nice little site, with excellent facilities. Good toilet block with separate shower block. The wardens were very pleasant and helpful. The river runs at bottom of site. Very nice setting.

Great flat walks here as well. From the site, a short walk through the woods, onto main path leads to the village of Aberfoyle. Just outside the site is the cycle / walking track which goes to Aberfoyle, as well as the opposite direction.

We enjoyed Aberfoyle, as a couple of pubs were dog friendly, and surprisingly so were a couple of the bigger shops.

Would definitely come back next season.

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.
