We enjoyed this site - literally on the banks of Loch Lomond. You are able to launch boats and canoes but we are walking types so enjoyed a hike up Ben Lomond itself and also the much smaller, but with equally good views, Conic Hill from Balmaha. The West Highland Way passes the site and provides a steady stream of backpackers pitching their tiny tents each evening. They have their own large 'shed' so there is somewhere warm, dry and hopefully midge free for cooking, clearing up and chatting. There are also picnic tables available.

In contrast we have a largish tent so opted for hardstanding with electric. You will need an extra groundsheet to protect your actual tent from the gravel and rock pegs for the guy lines etc. Many of the grass pitches were waterlogged and the ground muddy where cars had driven onto the grass so the staff were quite happy with us on the hardstanding.

Facilities were good and very clean. Wifi and phone reception good. Staff friendly. Reception sells absolute essentials but Balmaha (2 miles walk on good paths) has a village shop which will keep you going with all the basics needed for a short stay. I don't know where the nearest supermarket is - Drymen has a Spar?

There are two further sites up the road - Camping in the Forest has Cashell Bay, which looks similar. The Forestry Comm also run a basics only site at Sallochy. Wild camping is not allowed March to October.

This was our first visit to Scotland in our caravan, and we were not disapointed. The site location is just amazing.

On arrival we were met by professional and friendly wardens who quickly completed the paperwork and showed us our pitch and explained the park and its facilities. We were lucky to have a pitch on the front by the loch so we quickly unhitched and enjoyed a lovely cup of tea just staring out to the loch, what lovely views!

The campsite is not large it is situated a short drive or a 20 minute walk from the nearest village where a small shop, visitor centre and pub are situated. The site is dog friendly and there are plenty of lovely walks to be enjoyed.

All facilities were within easy reach, the showers and the toilets were rather tired but well maintained by the wardens, There was a small shop run by the wardens where you could buy necessary items that we forgot.

A good base for touring Loch Lomond and the surrounding area, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, its a truly beautiful location run by friendly and professional wardens.

We arrived nice and early and waited for reception to open at noon, as we were first we had hoped be allocated a prime shore side location, sadly not, if would appear that the first come first served didn't work in our favour. The shore side pitch was filled the next day.

Nice clean showers and toilets, closed for cleaning 10. 30am till noon. No motorhome service area and all waste bins located in one area.

Very busy at the weekend, the allocated seasonal caravan area was very busy although quiet, apart from off lead dogs.

Lovely location for backpackers, Kayakers, or just relaxing.

There is a small on site shop with limited opening hours, nearest COOP in Balloch.

The west highland way runs close to the site, we could see the climbers heading up Ben Lomond from our second row pitch.

Came here after discovering Luss site road noise impossible to cope with. Best decision ever. Blissfully quiet and perfect lochside pitch. Check in couldn't have been easier, despite arriving with no notice, and shown to choice of pitches. Facilities absolutely fine, though those in main block better than the backpackers in the middle of the field. Great location for cycling base - quiet roads and plenty of route choices.

Reviewer: The Alf 1 review from this member

Did not use facilities as self contained. Site had very pleasent outlook and views. Wardens were very helpful, and friendly on phone. Arrived in heavy rain when other sites were water logged. Upon arrival wardens (all 4) were helpful and informative, even as example regards wifi access. Apart from 1 warden having body parts drop off (inside joke because we have age concessions) could not fault their attitude. Would we come here again, you bet. Our 1 complaint is the rain if they could fix that then 11 out of 10 but seeing as they could not we have to give a score of 10 out of 10. Have given a 10 score for child friendly etc cos could not score not applicable.

We stayed at this site for one night near the end of our 750 mile tour of Scotland. It is located right on the shores of Loch Lomond but the road to the site is quite narrow and winding. Shower and toilet facilities were a bit dated but plentiful with hot water and plenty of space. There is a small shop at reception.

We were lucky to get a pitch right on the waters edge but all pitches had views of the Loch.

There were lovely walks along the edge of the Loch - along part of the West Highland Way.

Some of the units had boats with them. These could be launched from the slipway at the site. I can't recall if there was a children's playground on site.

Not sure if we would go back to this site due to its location but for an over night stop it was lovely.
