Reviewer: Pulster 1 review from this member

Just had a 4 night visit to this site to give our new Dutch pyramid tent a trial run.

Arrived at the site and was greeted by the friendly and helpful staff who quickly directed us to our Loch side pitch.

The views are stunning. Was a rather wet stay though and our grass pitch was very waterlogged come the end of it and a mini mud bath was under our groundsheets when we left.

We ended up packing up a day early to try and ensure a dry canvas - nothing to do with the site, just a practical move for us due to commitments when we returned home.

As I said the views are stunning, a nice cafe & pub in the closest village, Balmaha. A short car trip to Balloch and we visited Loch Lomond Shores, not many shops there but we did go on a short 50 min Loch cruise. There was a farmers market on which had a lot of local produce for sale.

Facilities were more than adequate, including laundry appliances and were kept clean by the staff. There is a small play area for children and a back packing shelter where back packers can cook in the dry.

Mossies and midges are very present, I didn't put repellant on during the first 25 mins of our set up and I was almost eaten alive with over 100 bites (I am prone to attracting any bloodsuckers).

Overall a great site to visit to take in the views and have a quiet Loch side relax, or use as a base for your hiking needs.

My son and I finished our two week holiday here, staying for two nights, before heading home. We secured an (almost) loch side pitch, guided there by the very helpful lady from reception. The weather wasn't great, during our short stay but, being walkers, it was a case of put the gear on and get out anyway. Plenty of lovely terrain to walk through in the surrounding area but, like any other spot like this, it comes with fairly high midge presence! Little blighters get everywhere! Site facilities pretty good, had no issues with anything. From a wheelchair user's perspective; I didn't get to see into the disabled facilities but the main building is accessed by a ramp. All roads within the boundaries of the site are tarmaced and hardstands are coated in a very fine gravel, not causing any issues for either wheelchair occupant or carer, in my experience. The motorhome service point is adequate but not perfect as the grey water drop point is a manhole, set to the side of the parking area - totally useless for my set-up so my grey water came home. Recycling is also available on site. Summing up, a very pleasant location and one I would, certainly, revisit.

Spent 2 nights here en route to the West Highlands. Arrived in rain but friendly helpful warden offered us a couple of pitch choices. Loch-side pitch chosen. Fantastic location with walks from site. Nothing much in Balmaha except village shop and cafe. Our dog managed to pick up a tick so dog-owners be vigilant. Showers/toilets fairly basic but clean. Good price of 17 per night with EHU. Great site for walkers and water users.

We camped here while doing the West Highland Way. It was a pretty rainy day when we got in to pitch our tent, but they had a good camping hut where we sheltered until the rain stopped. In the hut was space to cook using our stove and a sink for washing etc. Good facilities there, warm showers, what more could you want on the WHW.

The price for a night to pitch our small 2 person tent without membership was 6. 70, just slightly above average from other places we stayed on the way.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our motorhome trip, beautifully located on the shores of the loch, and although our pitch was 2nd row back we had an uninterrupted view of the loch. Toilets and showers were good although the hated push button but good and hot. Very friendly welcome and had decided to walk to local pub using the loch side walk and was advised when we got to the fork to keep right which was handy to know and that we could get a cab back was also good as it would be almost impossible to do the walk in the dark! Pub, Oak Tree Inn is well worth a visit as food is very good. We did a loch cruise in the morning and then visited Loch Lomond shores which was a bit disappointing as it's basically a shopping centre! We were fairly lucky with the weather as the site is beautiful and very peaceful and everyone we meet very friendly, would definitely visit again.

Recently stayed at this very picturesque campsite. No complaints about the site. However I think that the spirit of camping as I understand it is not alive and well at this particular site. On selecting a pitch we discovered our electric hook up lead was two foot short of the site hook up point. Not allowed to move the van closer as apparently the grass was too wet! When I enquired at reception 3 of the 4 site stewards decided that 2. 00 per night hire fee plus 20. 09 deposit was a fair price stating when I said in a jocular manner 'that's a bit harsh' one of the stewards snapped back at me sayin 'd you know how much these things are?'. Being a camper for 51 years and buying and selling campervan for a living yes I do know how much these things are. His dismissive and uncooperative attitude completely ruined our 2 day stay here.
