Nice, peaceful site in a good location. Says it all really! The site is clean and tidy and well laid out. Pitches are pretty level, gravel hard standing for most of the EHUs with the odd grass ones thrown in for variety. In the centre of the camping area is a green area for tents. Several water points. Grey disposal point which can be also driven over with a motor home.

The toilet block also houses a pot washing area and chem toilet disposal point. The toilet block itself was kept very clean and provided good facilities. After two weeks of touring around using sites for only a couple of nights at a time to get a shower that I could actually set the temperature on and move the head around was absolute bliss! The toilet blocks are a little dated but there is a sign saying they are due for refurbishment and to be honest they are still pretty good as they are.

The site also offers free WiFi which is a bonus.

The site is at the Dee side and there are some very pleasant walks directly accessed from the site. The town offers good facilities with mini markets, butchers, bakers, coffee shops, pubs, take away, etc.

If you want a peaceful, quiet relaxing break in a great setting on a site that is kept very well, with great walks then this site could be for you. If you want on site clubs with loads of screaming kids then go elsewhere!

Just back from a 3 day visit and I can thoroughly recommend this site to anyone. It is quiet and everything is spotlessly clean. We were 2 adults and a dog and there was a superb walk alongside the river Dee and the Golf Course. We'll be back for sure.

Only gripe would be that the water point and grey water waste were all on the left of the motorhome due to the one way traffic system. Because all my fill/disposal points are on the right of my Motorhome it required a bit on manoeuvring to get it right. But that is a very minor issue and would not put me off this site ever.

Stayed here for four nights over Easter. Lovely site with excellent facilities. Toilet and shower block always spotless and heated and staff were friendly and helpful. The local town has some excellent shops and we were very impressed with the local bus service. We use buses quite a lot as our motorhome is too big to drive around and they have the most accurate bus timetable we have ever used. Well worth a visit as this site is well situated to visit Balmoral and Braemar.

We've just had our first motorhome holiday with our dogs in a hired van. Ballater was a perfect stop - quiet, spotlessly clean in all areas and best of all lovely hot showers. This community run site is a real credit to Ballater. Even the wind and rain couldn't spoil our night's sleep. The Glenaden Hotel's Barrel Bar was the venue for an excellent venison burger and they were very welcoming to our dogs as well. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site, plus the bonus of over 65s get a discount!

Great wee site in beautiful surroundings and one which we keep coming back to time and again. Now run by the community and better for it I would say. We had a lovely pitch in the far corner right next to the River Dee. Kids enjoyed the small playpark and the walks along by the river and along the old Deeside Railway line are great.

Ballater itself is lovely, lots of nice little shops and a great place to stroll around on a dry day.

Site is right on the outskirts of the village which means you don't need to use the car to get to the shops/pubs/restaurants or the great little fish and chip shop.

Toilet block a little dated but kept nice and clean. Looking forward to our next visit.

This is a great wee site on the banks of the Dee. Well located for the town and all it's facilities. Hard to fault the site, the surroundings are pretty spectacular and the town of Ballater is very well kept. ( It is Royal Deeside after all) A visit to Loch Muick is a must, you can even tackle Lochnagar if you are keen. In short, great site which is run by the community with profits fed back to upgrade the site, give it a go - you will be impressed.

Ps great chippy and the grub in the Alexandra Hotel is first class.
