Thrilled this campsite is up and running again after the tragedy of the January storm. Booked the site against the fence with EHU. Very idyllic to wake up to the sound of the river Dee each morning. Staff helpful and friendly. Toilets spotless and cleaned regularly. Great site for kids, nice wee playpark and great for kids on their bikes or scooters. Great location too as shops, bars and restaurants are a short walk away. I'm incredibly fond of this campsite and will definitely be back. Great live music in the Balmoral Bar too!

Just returned from a brilliant very sunny weekend at the Ballater site.

Good to see it back up and running after the floods and the damage it caused.

They have increased the number of touring pitches and all new hardstandings.

Toilet blocks all been refurbished and look great.

There are some areas with newly laid turf so no tents on these areas yet but the main tent section is all good.

The part of town nearest the bridge is still work in progress as far as shops go but the butchers, hotel and a couple of small shops all up and running. The top part of the town around the square and up to the Railway station buildings and beyond are all business as usual with the shops and hotel, eating places, co-op etc, they escaped flood damage.

This was a lads weekend camping break but will be back with my wife in the caravan later this year.

We were welcomed by very friendly and helpful wardens and were directed to the tent area to find our own pitch, the site was busy so there was very little choice. None of the tent pitches are far from the excellent toilet/wash block. Nowhere is that far from the busy play area which was noisy, however everything was almost silent come the 1030 curfew time.

The site is 2 mins walk from the lovely town centre with several pubs and local shops, there is also a reasonably sized supermarket. A visit to Loch Muich is well worth the drive and there is a stunning walk round the loch.

We will definitely be visiting again.

This is a great caravan park. We have stayed here many times over the years and have great memories of our holidays. This was the first time we have visited since the council sold it off and I have to say we weren't disappointed. There is always a great atmosphere here. Wardens are very nice, toilets spotless and site fees were reasonable. Just a short walk to the baker and butcher etc. We will definitely be back next season :-)

Beautiful situation on banks of river. We were in camper van so had plenty of room in our pitch. However the tent area was very busy with very little room between tents.

Shower/toilet block very clean even though the site was full.

Great access to Ballater village. Can recommend Lochnagar Indian restaurant. Fantastic food.

Right next to riverside walk/cycle path. Also next to golf course & tennis courts, so plenty to do.

Brilliant location. Friendly people.

We have just returned from a 5 night break at this Ballater site.

I would agree with previous reviews, its a great little site.

Good sized fairly level pitches with 16 amp hook-up if required.

Wardens were seen cleaning the toilet block 3 - 4 times a day. There are about 6 shower cubicles and around 12 sinks in a centre area, also about 6 WC cubicles in both male and female.

Even when busy at the weekend we never needed to queue for a shower.

Water points are scattered around the site, excellent CDP is in a room at front of main toilet block and one grey water disposal point to the right of that.

Free wifi also included in the price.

It is a nice quiet site if that's what you like. There is a good sized playpark for children but no noise from early evening onwards.

The staff at the site are so friendly and helpful and help make this site what it is.

Excellent dog walks from both ends of the site.

The town is a short 5 minute walk away and has a good choice of places to eat/drink also a good Co-op supermarket.

There are also a few small town shops but not touristy tacky like some small towns I have visited.

I would recommend the Lochnagar Indian Restaurant just across from the Co-op, where we had a very good meal at a reasonable price.

This was our first visit to this site but it won't be long till our next.
