This is an Excellent site in beautiful location. Very friendly welcoming staff with Good facilities. Will definitely come back. So good to find a campsite open all year to enjoy peace and quiet. Good choice of pitches.

We arrived in the rain and were shown our pitch by warden. Had booked an awning pitch but neighbours in a massive outfit with a boat trailer did encroach onto the pitch we were given and so did without rather than cause a nuisance as occupants of outfit weren't around. There was a mix of static, seasonal and touring pitches and we were on the 2nd of 4 tiers. Did feel a little penned in and also felt that we were intrusive of the tier below. Plenty of bins, taps etc on site with a central waste and chemical disposal point at the toilet block. Toilet block was open all day and cleaned in the morning but all the surfaces were dripping with condensation all the time and the floor was dirty constantly. They were good showers though and plenty of room. The reception was central and had a book exchange and info room and also groceries on sale. A massive tent / camping field next to the hard standing was slopped and also suffering somewhat with the amount of rain, very boggy in parts. Massive dog walking field next to the camping field which was a god send as the only alternative was to walk along the main road to the nearby village which wasn't pavemented unless you are happy to get in and out of your vehicles constantly. We like to park up and not move so on that basis will probably not visit again. I could imagine for families interested in boating or fishing, this would be an ideal site and with plenty of play area's, great for families with younger children.

Fantastic site, beautiful area and views over Loch Ken are stunning. A very well run site with great facilities and welcoming staff. Great for kids, big area for them to run round with parks, football pitch, table tennis. Boats available to hire and are good value for money. Will be happy to return here again and again.

What a great place to stop on the edge of the Town, Hard standing or Grass right on a Loch. The town has plenty to offer Tesco coop and local shops, Brewery to go and visit strange opening times as it shuts at 6pm. The Place has places to eat and if fishing is your thing then the Lake has it for you.

The site has 3 toilet blocks and a swipe card is required for entry. The staff are the best, Will come again

Camped for six nights at the end of May and early days of June, with EHU. Friendly welcome.

Site is really beautiful, with a mixture of grassy areas and wooded areas alongside Loch Ken. There are some small beaches along the shore of the Loch, perfect for kids and dogs to play at.

The camping field for EHU is slightly sloping. Some pitches are flatter than others. Our pitch was on a slight slope. There is a water point close to the pitches, as well as dishwashing facilities and showers/toilets in portakabins.

Toilets cleaned daily, but it was quite busy, so they did become a bit messy and smelly later in the day. Showers are clean and VERY powerful.

Plenty of activities for kids to take part in on the site. Location is quiet, although the main road runs alongside the site. You hear the traffic but its very infrequent.

Many nearby places to visit, including the Galloway Forest Park, Dumfries and Castle Douglas, Gretna, and the Ayrshire, Dumfreisshire and Galloway coasts with their many beaches.

Will definitely return.

This is one of those campsites I always wanted to visit for many years. Had 2 beautiful hot days at this panoramic site overlooking the loch itself. The staff were very friendly and helpful, showing us to our pitch and informing us of all the amenities. About 7 miles from Castle Douglas. We arrived on Thurs bank holiday weekend and planned to stay till Sunday. It turned out there were over 100 bookings for the Friday and the same for Saturday but by Friday just after midnight the noise from both adults and children running amock deprived us of sleep.

Although adequate the toilets in my opinion did not serve purpose for over the 300_ 400 camping there, as they only had 3 cubicles and showers. I may visit this site again but it will be midweek when the site was not so busy
