On arrival, all you will see is rows of static caravans. The tent area feels rather squeezed in at the back as an after thought. Pitch space is limited and it would be cramped if busy. The pricing structure seemed fluid and increased during our stay, depending on who was manning the office. The facilities are clean and showers free, despite coin boxes fitted? Since, during our stay, we were buffetted by 40mph southerly winds, the sheltered position proved to be a bonus!

Hopeman is a fantastic little village with a shop, chemist, butcher, take-away and several pubs. There is a good, level footpath to Burghead along the old railway line. The walk East to Lossiemouth is more challenging. Lovely views across the Moray Firth, with dolphin fins regularly breaking the surface. A fantastic location for exploring the area. We recommend the Cullin Bay Hotel for their 2015 award winning Skink.

This campsite grew on us over the 4 nights we stayed so don't be put off by initial impressions. The location is worth it.

Hopeman is a cracking little place and we've been going there since the 1970's and have stayed at this site several times over the years as the site has gone through different owners.

I have to agree with previous posters about the spacing between touring units, they're far too close and I wouldn't stay when the site was busy but I guess many put up with it because of the location and not the site.

My other gripes are the way tourers are sited among the static caravans which have swelled greatly in numbers over the years and again as has been said the 40p charge for a shower, this is just so out of touch.

On the plus side, the site is very well maintained and the facilities are very clean so when the site is extended as I was told it was to be, I hope the owner will consider giving us tourers a separate area with proper pitch spaces and drop the silly coin meters for a shower.

We loved this site. The owners have spent a lot of time and effort making it a very well thought out, slightly quirky, site, with a great sea-side brand. Every thing was perfectly clean at all times.

Site is mostly statics but with plenty of space for vans and tents with electric hook-up and have a few shepherds huts for galamping! Not too far a walk to the toilet and shower blocks. All the usual facilities for a site accepting multiple types of units.

The owners and staff couldn't be more helpful - we needed to move pitch as we wished to stay longer and they went out-of-their-way to make it as easy as possible, even carrying our awning down to the new pitch.

Has the most lovely beach, soft sand and amazing views and with the long days in summer, walking along at nearly 11pm in daylight was fab.

Hopeman is a short stroll with a general store/post office and a CostCutter, 2 friendly pubs and a fish & chip shop. And a little harbour.

Burghead is a 30 minute walk along the old railway and has a cafe The Bothy also owned by the camp.

We are already thinking about when we can return.

This was my first stay at this site but my daughter's second when we arrived my daughter was welcomed by her first name which I felt was very welcoming the staff were attentive and helpful. Our pitch was on The Platform which had smashing open views to the sea they pitches were roomy and we had ample room around the van to sit and relax we hooked up to the electric switched on the television got the kettle on and made plans for the evening. The site is close to the town with a choice of eateries. Ladies and Gents washrooms with coin operated shower cubicles, wash hand basins, wcs, hairdryers, electric shaver points and all spotless. The site has it's own sandy beach and there are super walks along the paths next to the beach to the nearest villages. We had a great time the weather was on our side and the sun shone all weekend we look forward to returning in the near future.

This was a lovely surprise be warned very narrow roads to site but we had no problem some pitches have a lovely sea view. Toilet block clean there are two blocks one with laundry and a good area with lines for drying. No shop but a short walk into the village with a couple of shops, coffee shop, fish shop and a couple of pubs. There is a lovely harbour (when we arrived it was fun day so very busy) a nice walk to some quaint beach huts. A large play field used by local football team but great for the camp site children with a skate board bicycle park and a small play area with slides etc. The staff helpful but did not see a lot of them once we were shown to our pitch. Would go again a pretty area.
