This review was written against the background that we visited in torrential rain and obviously does not show the site in it's best light.

We chose a pitch adjacent to the river as when we arrived the rains had not really begun in earnest.

The showers and toilets were spotless for the three days we were there

Despite people carrying leaves and mud in on their shoes.

Pitches were of a good size but some were already showing signs of flooding. This was explained to us by the wardens as to which areas were prone to it they were also highlighted on the site map provided.

There is a Coop approximately half a mile away and a further walk brings you into the town with paper shop and bank, and down to the bridge where the white water is spectacular.

I was treated to the sight one morning of an eagle circling the site.

Just to demonstrate what the wardens are up against a gentleman came in with a folding camper and after about twenty attempts to site his van he had left huge furrows in the already waterlogged field opposite and to the side of his pitch.

A warden was soon there trying to repair the damage in the pouring rain.

We thought it prudent to move for the third night as the river had risen dramatically over the second night and was close to the top of the bank. Thankfully for the people that didn't move it subsided throughout the day.

I must praise the wardens as they were out the morning it rose very early monitoring the river and warning people.

Would I return, most definitely, but I would hope for better weather.

Just back from a very pleasant 3 night stay at this site. It's a pretty well kept site within easy walking distance of Killin with its hotels and few shops. There is also a well stocked co-op for supplies. We had a pitch next to the river which was lovely and were often visited by the ducks who freely wander about the site. The pitches are hard standing and spacious. Quiet and peaceful at night with just the hooting of the owls to be heard. We also watched the shooting stars on one of the clearer nights.

One very tiny negative - the toilets although clean are pretty tried and dated. Having said that there were adequate showers (6) all with unlimited hot water and I never had to queue once. The showers themselves though are not the bonniest I've ever encountered on a campsite. Toilet cubicles also rather cramped.

Good site though, would return without hesitation.

Nice location, near Killin

We stayed here for two nights with our rented Motorhome. It's a real nice, clean and quiet site. Killin on walking distance. There are a few restaurants, a shop and an outdoor shop where you can book activities. We (family of 4, 2 children 15-17) did one of the hill climbs and in the afternoon kayak on the river and the loch. Very nice, with Sunshine.

Really stunning area around the loch Tay. We have really enjoyed the stay in this caravan park. We will visit this site again.

We stayed here for 9 nights and would certainly go back. The site is next to the river Lochay which feeds into Loch Tay. There is a lovely walk to the loch and the village of Killin is also a short walk away.

The wardens were extremely welcoming and helpful and the facilities are excellent.

Dog walking is off site but very close by and there is a choice of routes depending on how far you want to go.

Killin has good facilities with a Co-op and a number of pubs and there is much to explore locally in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

Reviewer: Doakybhoy 1 review from this member

Stayed at Maragowan last weekend to give my motorhome its first outing. We were not disappointed one bit. On arrival the on site staff were very friendly and helpful to this first time camper. The site is quiet and the only noise seemed to be from the River Lochay that runs alongside the site. Tranquil to say the least. The site facilities are excellent. The toilet/shower/dishwashing facs are great and always clean. Outside the campsite, Killin is a great wee village and it is a short walk from the campsite to get to the village centre. We hired Kayaks and paddled along the River Lochay to Loch Tay. The scenery is outstanding riverside. There are many cycling tracks through forestry and river/lochside. There are a few Inns & Hotels to satisfy everyone's wants. Get up there and give it go, its brilliant and has got us hooked.
