The site is located next to the main A83 and is very busy with commercial vehicles, the site has a mixture of static vans and seasonal caravans, many of the workmen leave for their work early, so if your a light sleeper, wear ear plugs.

The Crinan canal runs near the site and is always a fun to watch the boats navigating the canal, the town has lots of local shops, the hospital is close at hand.

The site in my opinion has seen better days, although clean and functional the toilets and shower block are very run down.

You have a choice of pitches, £20 this month gets you a full service pitch on hard standing.

We find the site handy to restock, do the washing before heading of to your next location.

I hope the site upgrades its shower block before we return.

We camped for two nights in May 2015. There had been rain so we carefully found a dryish pitch. ( We stayed here in 2007 too and the grass/moss tends to be damp, so check. )

The reception, toilets etc. Were all fine.

All our pegs went in ok and the pitches are pretty well all flat.

The town has a rocky beach front at the head of the loch. There are plenty of shops, garage etc.

There are plenty of things in the area to visit, we walked the Beaver Trail.

A useful site for those of us on our way North or back again.

We have visited this site many times over the past 30 years. It's our favourite place to break our touring holiday for a stock up in the local supermarket. Even using the laundry if running out of clean clothes. The warden is so welcoming. The pitches are spacious with water and electric on hand. The dog walk is convenient. Locally the chinese takeaway is good. All in all 10:10 we will be back for sure. See you in August. Thanks for looking after us.

A larger site than we would usually visit but lovely and quiet, good location with a small high street/petrol garage close by, pitches were spacious with electric hook up and water our pitch, showers lovely and hot, toilets and washing up area were spotlessly clean. Site also has a laundry facility. Site is dog friendly and allows bbqs as long as they are off the floor. All in all a good site.

We returned to this site again with my brother, sister-in-law and their two children from South Africa. They really enjoyed their stay for the weekend in our tourer. Weather was lovely and they enjoyed the trip out to Crinan Harbour. The site was a lot more busier - it was Scottish school holidays - but the site was still quiet and nobody made a nuisance of themselves. The wooden fence they were working on the month before is finished. It is very good value for money and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be returning shortly!

We stayed for 5 nights at this caravan site and found it to be very pleasant and the weather perfect. Although ablution block is dated, it was always clean. Owners are very friendly and we're helpful even though we had arrived just before 9pm. We chose our hard standing pitch and sorted payment out the next morning. Site is very clean, grass was short and well kept. A wooden picnic bench was conveniently placed at almost each pitch. Wooden fencing was being put up in the far corner of site, but nothing to rob us of peace and quiet. Site has had a revamp and caravans/statics moved around. Small play park for the children and plenty of space to ride their bikes too. Loch Gilp is just over the road - we hardly noticed the traffic noise on the main road. Crinan Canal was beautiful and we cycled along the tow path to Cairnbaan where the locks start. Crinan Harbour is very quaint with a lovely coffee shop and hotel/restaurant. There is a Tesco Express & Co-op in town. Tarbert is a lovely town to visit and a walk around the harbour is a good day out. The surrounding scenery is spectacular - and we even took a ride down to Castle Sween and found a beautiful white beach with crystal clear sea water. On the whole one of the best holidays we've had in a long time - definitely going back. Even considering relocating to the area with our four children! Only downfall were the midges - so stock up on Smidgee cream & they will leave you alone.
