Reviewer: Drewsmith 1 review from this member

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.

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!

Reviewer: Ceemac 2 reviews from this member

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.
