Craigie Gardens is a lovely site, the grounds are very well maintained and the floral displays around the site are beautiful.

The pitches are large and well spaced out, plenty of space to have your car, caravan and awning side by side.

Toilet block is a little dated but clean and well maintained. There is a small playpark on the site.

Ayr is a 10 minute walk, along the river.

A good well laid out site with good hard standing pitches and electric hook up. Good facilities, but a limited number of showers, not a problem for us as we were not there at a busy time. Good campervan / motor home service point beside the toilet block. Water, bins and waste disposal points spread around the site. The wardens are very helpful and welcome you with good information about the site and nearby Ayr. Easy walking into town, the shops, supermarket and a longer stroll to the beach. The only downside was the person who spent all day cutting the grass on his sit on grass cutter which went on all day every day. This was very disappointing as overall this is great site with all the other staff very friendly. Beware if you are using sat nav as the nearby new university building has resulted in a change of roadway route to this site. Clear instructions are given on the Caravan Club website as to how to get to the site by road.

First time at this site and well impressed. Staff brilliant and site and facilities were immaculate. Nicely laid out site with quiet areas and good sized pitches with rules as to where you can position your unit which is very welcome. Also restricted to one visiting vehicle per unit which is good. Two down sides - there were only 4 showers - queues formed during busy periods. Also water pressure in showers very poor. Also, loads of dogs, some of which were not on leads. Not enough to put us of returning as site very handy for walking into town.

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.
