Just return from a weekend stay, the site has about 30 pitches and during the couple of nights we stayed it was fully booked. The pitches are good. However very tightly crammed in. Every time our neighbours were coming out of there awning it felt like they were getting into our car, that how close you are.

The facilities is in the toilet block were good but very dirty, on every occasion I used them, so I am not sure what the cleaning cycle is. This was very disappointing as everything else was good. Noise on the site at night was quite loud most nights but didn't stop me sleeping but may be a hindrance to others.

Most pitches are off the level so you will need to bring levelling ramps, I noticed a few which seemed ok but our slopped very badly from right to left looking out of the pitch.

I was also very disappointed we with staff at check in, I was given no details about the site or any direction/instruction after I explained I had never stayed there before. However I guess this is what you get when it is not a privately run site but a council one, where is it just a job at the end of the day.

All in all a good site with a couple of disappointments but it didn't ruin the holiday.

Excellent stopover point for the Larne ferry, good location with lovely views over the Antrim coast. Site accessible with key fob (£10 deposit) to open gates. All pitches have hook up and water. Good amenity block accessed with a key fob. Set in a country park with a visitor centre and café, trails and a play park. Plenty of information in amenity block on local restaurants, bars, supermarkets, etc.

First time to Carnfunnock and after all the recent rain had a very enjoyable couple of days camping.

The location was perfect, plenty of interesting activities for all tastes, toilet block facilities clean but better hairdrying facilities required. Could also improve on drainage system.

During the summer season it would be better for shop and activities to remain open until at least 9pm instead of closing at 6pm. As we have young children we prefer to remain on campsite in the evenings so did not visit pubs etc.

Overall we had a really enjoyable few days and are returning on 30/7 for another few days. First time camping and after doing Spain etc its the holiday for us.

We stayed for one night and had a fantastic stay at Carnfunnock.

There are great facilities. There is a bath as well as showers. The facilities seem modern. It is a small friendly park. Security was good. There are not a lot of pitches for tents but they only allow 8 at any one time.

Great value too compared to a lot of campsites. Lots to do for the kids - and walks around the park area. I would definitely recommend it and we will be back there again.

We only stayed one night and found the site in passing. The park is beautiful and the paths, gardens and activities provide plenty of interest. There are lovely views across to Scotland from some parts but no views from the caravan park.

The double slabs of concrete with the service point in the middle, designed presumably for a caravan and car, were really annoying as we had to exit the motorhome onto the muddy grass area and were getting no benefit from the second slab of concrete.

We noticed the difficulty a couple of caravans had turning into the pitches without hitting the service point. It feels as if it has been designed on a piece of paper by someone who has measured a caravan and a motorhome but never tried to drive or camp in one.

The toilet facilities were clean, but the sign-off sheet for cleaners to show check times and jobs completed was pure fiction. This site could be as wonderful as the rest of the park with some money and work spent on it.

This was our 4th holiday at Carnfunnock, we use it as a base for visiting relatives.

We chose to set up on the right with the tents as there is usually a good atmosphere.

The toilet facilities are kept to an acceptable standard.

The reception staff are as always very helpful.

The staff at Larne tourist information (Adele)were also very helpful with our booking.

For us you just can't beet the location we sat out at 10.30pm looking out over the sea there wasn't a sound apart from the night life, an ideal chill out location.
