Please note this site has closed down completely and will no longer operate from the end of the 2010 season. The Forest Holidays campsite also in Ardgartan remains open, please see their separate entry for details.

Having spent one night of 'wild camping' on the side of Loch Lomond, we opted for a more comfortable (grass) option at Ardgartan near Arrochar. (Tip for anyone considering wilding on Loch Lomondside - the 'sand' appears to be mainly composed of granite base and is very very hard on your back! - find grass!)

Don't get the two camps called Ardgartan confused.

As you head out of Arrochar along Loch Long, it is the second site that you will want.

The welcome on site was warm, friendly and accommodated our unannounced arrival very quickly.

Payment can be made by plastic, which is useful when you want to preserve cash for small purchases in some of the local spots that will only do cash!

We were guided to the first pitch for the tent, which was a little too much of a slope for the action of gravity on a satinesque smooth sleeping bag on an equally smooth groundsheet!

No trouble though, we were taken over the site to a more level pitch and set up was quickly completed.

The facilities block comprised separate laundry/dish wash room.

Separate Ladies/Gents toilets and (single)shower per gender. In two days on site we never found it busy or had to queue at any point - although the high proportion of caravans & motorhomes with their own facilities would mean they weren't under pressure.

The laundry is a little expensive at £3.50 per wash and £1.00 for 20 minutes. The dryer wasn't very effective - it took twenty mins just to get three pieces of underwear 'nearly' dry! No matter the facilities are clean, well maintained (daily).

The camp site itself is big enough to cope but 'feels' small enough to be welcoming and personal in it's service.

The well maintained grounds are surrounded by fantastic views up and down Loch Long with of course the high peaks towering over the whole scene. Access is easy to the pebble/rock shore line where the views are magnificent all round and especially on a dark clear night the sky can be spectacular.

Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a beauty spot where a decent walk takes you into town (Arrochar) and a decent drive takes you into the heart of the hills.

Very nice site once you get down the potholed road lovely views of Loch Long, only stayed for 2 nights as the midges in there millions got to much for us.

Toilet & showers could really do with updating and more of them but very clean and plenty of hot water. Small shop on site selling most things, very sloping in places so do need blocks would go again but maybe a different time of year

Excellent location on the banks of Loch Long, but we visited at a bank holiday weekend and the site was very busy and had too many large loud groups, some of whom were up all night.

Couple that run the site very nice & helpful but site crowded with very basic facilities. Toilet block was very old, but clean and located at one end of the site. If you were camping at the other end of the site you would have a very long walk to the toilet or dishwash.

Most of site is sloping so you need to be prepared to sleep on a slope if you are in a tent or use a lot of blocks if in a caravan. I would only go back mid week when it might be quieter. Lots to do if you like cycling, walking or fishing all from the site.

Stayed 2 nights. Fantastic site in great location on shore of Loch Long, Extremely friendly and helpful site managers. Toilets and showers dated but impeccably cleaned and good enough for me. Most pitches sloping. As expected lots of midges. Fishing on site, can hire kit from office. Had a great stay here and would recommend. Not much in way of local eating or drinking unless prepared to drive for it.

Very picturesque site, and very picturesque area.

As others have said, a quiet site with basic, but very clean, facilities. Staff very friendly. But the midges! The second worst I have ever experienced, and impervious to the breeze and rain and smoke.
