A typically well maintained Caravan Club Site, the facilities were in excellent condition very clean and well maintained. The grounds were even at this early part of spring were looking great.

The site is well positioned for popping into town and visiting the surrounding area where is plenty to do.

Well worth a visit.

Site right on our door step once through the barrier you would be in any of the well run caravan club sites

Well kept toilet block by wardens and caravanners

Plenty water and waste points for the size of site

Tesco just up the road and many more shops in town centre a few minutes walk away

Only one thing when my grandson went to the toilet, he could not reach the urinals, maybe lower one or a wee step would help

Craigie Gardens is a typical Caravan Club site, regimented, with a plethora of notices warning, for example, that the hot water is hot, that floors may be slippery when wet, advising that the 5 mph speed-limit on site (which we support) is “Helping to take care of you” and, on leaving the washrooms, asking “Have you turned off the taps?”. We should also have liked to turn off the local commercial radio station which played incessantly in the washrooms.

Having said that, the facilities are up to the customary Caravan Club standard providing almost everything we look for in a good site: an electrical connection, very clean toilets, showers and washing-up facilities and pleasant staff. Unfortunately, one other requirement, namely quietness, was lacking. In particular, one warden appeared to be addicted to power tools, first using a leaf-blower with a motor on his back to remove much of the grit from potholes in which it had been placed to make them slightly better then, after an hour or so, driving a small, John Deere tractor around for some time without doing anything noticeably useful. Doubtless he could defend them but his noisy, dusty activities appeared wholly unnecessary on a hot, sunny, Sunday afternoon when nearly every resident was sitting outside trying to enjoy the remarkably warm and sunny weather.

We stayed at Craigie Gardens campsite for two nights specifically to visit Robert Burns’ birthplace and museum in nearby Alloway. They were well worth a visit but Ayr itself was a disappointment having lost much of its former glory as a ship-building and textile manufacturing town and as a holiday destination. During our week-end visit the exceptional beach was over-run by inebriated, feuding gangs and the attendant police, coastguard and ambulance personnel and vehicles.

Craigie Gardens campsite provided a convenient and comfortable base but not one in which we should enjoy a prolonged stay.

We had our first visit to Craigie this weekend. Weather was brilliant and thankfully no sign of the dreaded midges. The site was almost full and, on the whole, pretty quiet.

The entrance is a sight to behold with the most beautiful hanging baskets and planters.

Wardens were very welcoming giving us a layout plan and marked the booked pitches which then enabled us to choose our own spot. We may have chosen one that was a bit too close to children's playground as it did get a bit noisy at times. It would not put us off from going back there though, we would just get pitch further away.

A lot of boy racers late Saturday night in the town woke me as did a rather large seagull which sounded like he was doing a clog dance on our roof on sunday morning.

Fellow campers were very friendly.

Toilet block/showers clean with plenty of hot water. Plenty of well behaved dogs tethered outside which didn't bark as you passed by. Lovely smells of bacon cooking on Sunday morning which was very annoying (we are on a diet)!

On Saturday we drove to the beach. The tide was well out so loads of clean sand to walk over. We watched the sun setting behind the Isle of Arran, got a nice fish supper near the Station

Hotel in Ayr then back to site which was much quieter than Friday. There is a nice river side walk into town which will only take 10 minutes or so to reach town centre.

Had a 5 day stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. As said a short walk to town for bars and shops. Pitches are a good size, one toilet block with 4 showers for the men, not sure of the ladies. Never had to wait long even though the site was full.

Information hut was full of leaflets for all the attractions in the area, and the folder on eating places was most helpful.

Used my sat nav to locate the site which was a mistake as it sent me down the wrong road. We had the write up from the CC on how to find it, and should have used it.

Stayed here a few times over the years and it never fails to impress, lovely clean site, well looked after and as ever 'up to the Caravan Club's usual high standard'. Wardens as always were extremely helpful and friendly.

However we unfortunately stayed during all the heavy rain but the wardens (bless 'em) were out in the pouring rain 'rodding' the drains to prevent any flooding - very successfully too !

Would recommend the riverside walks and the walk into the town - stunning even in the rain ! Don't miss a visit to Wellington Square Fish 'n Chip cafe` the fish are to die for !

The town of Ayre is now looking a bit run down (as are most towns) nowadays due to shop closures. Beautiful beaches

No more than 5 minutes away in the car !
