Tidy site with hardstanding serviced pitches, power, mains water, grey water and Tv aerial hookup.

Pitches vary is size, some had room for caravan, car and awning, others caravan and awning only unless you park car side to side on the pitch. Or just caravan and car.

Most touring pitches seem to be nearer the site entrance, some of which are riverside pitches. These riverside pitches are open with no fencing and there is about a 6-8ft steep drop to the river which was high and fast flowing on our visit. Not child friendly.

Toilets are ok apart from shower curtain sticking to you whilst showering. Only one hook on back of the door and nowhere to put your shampoo etc in the ladies showers. The gents had a hook on type soap rack in each of the 3 showers also one door hook.

The site is also very dark at night, more so that other sites we use. You only have the low light from the services bollard on the pitches. The further you go into the site the darker it gets.

Its about a 15 minute walk into Crieff, with lots of places to eat/drink and most are dog friendly and have signs on the door saying so. We ate out most days both lunch and dinner and pleased with the choices available.

To summarise we enjoyed Crieff and surrounding area but not sure if we would return to this site but with a little thought to small details it would be a better place.

We never met the wardens unless the woman how booked us in was one? When my wife held in the barrier entry card on the day we left, the same woman took the card from my wife and disappeared into her office without a word.

She did not expect a conversation but a few simple words or just a simple 'bye'.

First visit and our first ever caravanning holiday.

Park was clean and tidy, well maintained, and the couple that manage the site could not have been more friendly or helpful.

We originally booked from the wednesday to the sunday but we then phoned up and booked from a Monday till Sunday, which was no problem at all, even at short notice.

Site was quiet, well away from the road, and the toilet block was warm, clean and very accessible.

On the Friday and Saturday night the rugby club had its annual beer festival which you could hear music from, but the noise was not that bad and did not affect our stay, even with 2 young kids, 2, 1/2 and 1, 1/2 year olds.

The site filled up on the Friday and Saturday nights to almost capacity, and there is quite a few vans on site which are permanently pitched.

We were given pitch 30, which was directly across from a small on site kids play park.

Kids were able to run about freely no issues.

Pitch was big enough for van and awning and some space extra to walk around your set up, all hard standing.

We were told we could park our car in front of van and awning but as we had 2 cars with us we just kept them in the main car park in front of reception.

Reception has a small shop within that sells some basic essentials, but with the town so close and on your door step, we just bought what we needed in town.

We used the on site shop of ice lollys for the kids as our first 4 days were great weather.

Crieff town centre was a 2 min drive away or 10 to 15 min walk depending on your walking speed.

Will stay here again.

Great base for access to surrounding area including Commrie, Stirling, Blairdrummond, Perth, and Dundee.

If you stay here, and have kids, take a trip to Commrie and visit Auchengarroch farm park, only 15 min drive, kids loved it.

A return visit, so I don't wish to add to earlier reviews. I'd like to confirm (in case it puts anyone off from coming) that both toilet blocks have now been refurbished and are spotless - not a tile in sight now & the smell of fresh paint. The recreation area beside the site (but not part of it) is handy for the dog walk first & last thing, and the office supplies poo bags. Our dog didn't cost extra either (27 pn, half term). We also recommend driving up behind Crieff Hydro, and walking up or around The Knock if the weather is clear.

Nice clean small caravan park.

Very well maintained grass

Pitches slightly small, if you have a awning there isnt any room for your car unless you put it on the grass.

Shower rooms were dated but clean and tidy with showers that can be temp changed.

Laundry room clean and tidy with ironing.

The kids play area is nice and well maintained.

Close to the town with plenty of places to shop and eat.

Over all we would go back to this site.

My husband and I have just arrived back from spending four days at this lovely site. The park is kept to a high standard, although the female toilet block was a bit tired looking, but very clean I hasten to add. My husband said that the gents toilet block is currently being painted, so maybe the ladies block will be next on the list. It's about a twenty minute walk to the town centre, uphill going and downhill coming back. The town centre offers various carry out establishments, lovely coffee shops etc. We will definitely return to this park, hopefully with friends, who are quite keen to book one of the pods available. The wardens at the park were friendly and offered a hand to park our caravan. I'm surprised it only has a three star rating, so don't let this put you off.

Pitches - We were put into a hard standing pitch next to the river. The pitch was fully serviced with water, drain, EHU and aerial point. The pitch was nicely laid out with a log border round the grass area separating the pitches. Not very big, we had our van and car in and there was no room for an awning.

Toilets - I have seen other reviews on the age of the toilets. When we were there the toilets are being renovated, gents had to use the single disabled toilet which was not a problem.

The weather stopped us doing much exploring of the site or Crieff area. The site is beside the River Earn which was well up and running when we were there. If you have children be aware this is a natural woodland site with no fences or barriers of any kind protecting the river access.

Only negative point was when we were leaving on Sunday. The rules are quite clear that we had to be off the site by 12. 00. Given the time of year and the site was not busy at all, plenty of free pitches, we did not rush to leave. Sunday was the only day since we arrived that was dry. Our friends who had their own van were just getting ready to hitch up at 12. 15 when the manager came across to tell us we were late and that we should have been out by 12. 00.

One of the benefits of going away in a caravan is the relaxing time when you are on site. If I was in a hotel I would expect to be asked to leave as they need to clean the room for the next guest. There is nothing to be done to a pitch. We have been to other sites that have let us stay till 3pm before leaving.

Disappointing end to our weekend. The manager could be a bit more relaxed about this when the site was so quiet.
