We have now been to this site four times in the last year. It is a very well kept site and the wardens are very friendly, hard working and helpful. Showers and toilets are first class as you would expect The pitches are nice and level and in great condition. There is a small play park on site and a public play park next door, accessed via gate with access code, which also gives access to Forfar Loch. This is a 2. 5 mile walk or cycle and is child friendly. Nearby shops and supermarkets are plentiful in Forfar. There is a tyre services nearby which we had to use as we had a puncture on our caravan. There is also a car valet service nearby which does a great job and they also have a mobile service for caravans. If I could be picky, I would say that some caravan/motor home owners still do not adhere to the 5mph limit, which can be annoying when you have young children nearby. This is not confined to this site and affects other sites. Having said that, I would have no hesitation in recommending this site and we will definitely be back again.

Lovely well kept site with friendly staff. Not too big to be impersonal. Toilet/shower facilities amongst the brightest, cleanest and roomiest I've come across. The site is close to supermarkets but also directly accesses a very good country park, excellent for dog walking. (there is a large loch in the country park but with the usual British restrictive obsession of discouraging anyone from even thinking of trying to use the waters for any purpose - but I digress) I really would recommend this caravan park.

This was our first visit to the Forfar Caravan Club site - we had been looking forward to it for some time. The site is easy to find and has good access - entrance and exit is controlled by barriers.

Booking in was typical Caravan Club style - business like, go and find a pitch, come back and tell us which one and get the card for the barriers and keys for the toilet/shower/information block.

We found a pitch with a view of the loch. We were very surprised how few pitches had a view of the loch as the name states 'Forfar Lochside'. I think it must have been an Estate Agent that thought up the name! The site is not lochside at all but situated within a public park which borders the loch. There is a 5 ft. High fence round the site.

The facilities are first class as you would expect. The pitches are well spaced out and there are several fully serviced. There is a children's play area within the site and dogs can be walked in the park. The park is very popular with dog walkers not connected with the site and most are not on a lead and we saw several big snarling dogs running wild. It was too frightening to take our very small dog for a walk there and instead took him elsewhere.

As previously stated there are plenty of supermarkets in Forfar and a reasonable selection of shops in the town centre.

We would not return due to the problem with dogs in the park.

A very clean and well maintained site with good facilities. The pitches are all flat with most hard standing although some seem quite close together. The grassy tent area behind the amenities block is convenient though also used by kids for games so lots of kids may impact on campers and vice versa!

Situated on the edge of town it's handy for Dundee, the coast, Angus Glens, or just the leisure centre next door and a walk / cycle round the adjacent loch - though path is a bit wet/musty at times.

Forfar is a small town but well provided for by supermarkets close to the site.

As it's in town some traffic noise is heard at night but not too loudly.

Would use the site again if in the area.

We arrived at exactly 12md the same time as 5 other units but this didn't phase the wardens at all, we were all dealt with in the same friendly & informative manner which got us off to a great start. The site was full due to a rally but we still got an excellent pitch, number 45 next to the gate to the loch. We were on a normal electric pitch & couldn't get a tv signal which was great lol. Toilets block was usual high CC standard with music playing in the background. Despite being full neither of us had to queue for a shower.

As mentioned on other reviews the site is very close to the town & there is a good mix of shops. We walked round the loch which was really lovely, a nice easy walk of about 3 miles.

There is a KFC & a MacDonalds on the Glamis end of the town & a lovely restaurant called Dunnichen stone we ate there on the Tuesday night & it was lovely.

We will be back to this site again hopefully in the near future. Well done Caravan Club

We were very impressed by this site - its impeccable toilets & showers; the layout in a circle, which makes it seem less regimented - the central grass area has EHUs but they weren't in use this late in the season; very generous hardstands, well separated; CDPs sited by each bin / water area, which was convenient; the location beside the Country Park around Forfar Loch with its ducks, geese, swans & gulls (an unobtrusive security fence separates the site from the many walkers, joggers and weekend football players); the 'help yourself' herb beds; the two hard-working friendly Wardens. For us, the only thing it lacked was a small on-site dog walk for comfort breaks, but that wouldn't stop us coming back. Cost 18 pn, should have been 28 as we are not CC members but they kindly waived the surcharge as the site wasn't full. It's possible to walk right around the loch, this would take a good hour or more. Town is a short walk away, 'the meffan' Gallery / Museum / TIC is worth a visit as it has very good exhibitions. Each of the several Angus Glens has a different character, we enjoyed 'ticking' them off. The other thing to recommend, of course, is a delicious Forfar Bridie for lunch! As essential as eating a Cornish Pasty in Cornwall.
