Spent a couple of nights here to visit Glasgow. The site is large, good size pitches with ehu and has everything you need. Reception assistant that we booked in with was a bit sharp but the others were lovely they had the basic needs and papers were on a first come first served basis. The toilet block was lovely nice shower, laundry, wash up area. The icing on the cake was the bus trip into Glasgow (loved Buchanan Street) a small mini bus picks up at reception and takes you in to town twice a day and picks you up in the late afternoon at a cost of 7. 50 worth every penny the driver was very good, pleasant and pointed out places of interest. There was a pub across the road from the entrance and the carvery was gorgeous. If you have children it is about 10 mutes walk to the fun fair.

Excellent site for an overnight stop, though we stayed for 2 nights as we were visiting friends in the area.

Found the site to be clean and tidy, showers and washing up area good. The laundry area looked excellent although we didn't need to use it. There was a very useful bus to Glasgow from the site. A reasonably priced pub for meals within a few minutes walk too. Very handy if only staying overnight and you don't want to cook. There is a small play area but this is not a site that I would say is child friendly, although the path into Strathclyde Park is at the entrance to the site and would be great for bike riding, walking and generally letting off steam.

Staff were efficient though not over chatty but then they are very busy. Some road noise, as was mentioned in previous reviews, but we didn't find it over much though it depends on your position in on the site, we were in the middle and enjoyed sitting out in the sun so the noise levels can't have been too loud. After all if you want a site handy for the motorway a little noise is to be expected. We will certainly stay there again.

Very convenient stop of site 2 minutes from M74 10 miles South East of Glasgow set on the edge of Strathclyde Country Park. The convenience also cause a problem with 24/7 traffic noise from this busy motorway!

The site facilities are top class Caravan Club standard and the pitches are spacious. However the site also acts as a major storage location for caravans and motorhomes that dominate 30% of one side of the site.

The Country Park is ideal spot with its central lake/lock offering a good 5k circular walk. Just the ticket, having travelled for a few hours whilst touring.

An enterprising coach company runs a mini bus service during the day into Glasgow directly from the site.

Overall convenient location, good facilities, ideal stop off point, but would not want to stay for more than one night!

Clearly been a lot of money spent here. Usual caravan club high standards but is frequented by a large number of gypsy travellers. Some screening of the storage area would improve things also its a shame that the storage is furthest away from the (considerable) M74 road noise and the touring pitches are closest to the noise! Should it not have been the other way around?

In the toilet block, the position of the mirrors in the gents is too low. I had to bend down when shaving etc.

From the site there is very easy access to Strathclyde Country Park which is great for all members of the family.

I really couldn't recommend this site unless you need to visit Glasgow or need an overnight stop (as we did). Yes it is convenient but it is very noisy due to it's proximity to the M74 and other major roads. We were there on a nice sunny day and sitting outside the van wasn't pleasant due to the noise levels, you could hardly hear the person sat next to you. The facilities were good as you would expect from a new site but it was expensive we thought. The whole site looked tatty when we stayed as the grass had not been mown despite the fact that there had been recent good weather, when we commented on this the warden gave a very surly reply. Not what you expect from a Caravan Club site sadly.

A large site set in the grounds of the park.

Usual quality you expect of caravan club sites but its all a bit sterile in my opinion. Friendly informative welcome on arrival, you pitch where you can and let the warden know.

As usual all pitching is regimental on hard standing which due to the wet weather at the time a bonus.

Stayed here for one night on route to the highlands so did not explore the area.

What I can say is it is noisy!

It is sandwiched between the M74 and several local trunk routes. If you were here in warmer weather with windows open then I imagine it would be worse.

There Is a lot of traffic in and around the area the area which causes jams.

On exiting the site to get back onto M74 northbound proves challenging in the rush hour!

Overall it suited us for a stop over but I would not stay longer.
