Nice rural campsite with a view of the lake, really friendly and welcoming staff. Good facilities provided including an outside sink/washing up area, toilets and showers. All in pretty good condition and kept very clean. There is a small shop at the entrance with camping essentials. Although we didn't need the electrical points there are several dotted around the site.

It is local to town with a short 10 minute walk along the lake, really useful if you want to visit the local pubs!

Because it is near the town there is a bit of noise from the railway and also the airport, however it wasn't enough to disturb our sleep.

There were a few midges and other insects as it's close to the lake so be prepared and pack some insect repellant for the tent!

We didn't have our daughter with us so couldn't comment on the child friendliness - however there were several families around with young children who all seemed to be enjoying it.

Excellent site very helpful warden, nicely laid out with gress and hardstanding pitches. Large tent area.

Shower block ect very clean hot water and very good shower, but very small. In my mind require up grading.

In all very pleasant stay

Just spent 5 nights here. Our second visit.

Friendly and helpful welcome to this nice and peaceful site which is well kept with generous pitches.

The site is positioned beside the river and it is a pleasant walk into the town. There is a Tesco and Co-op and a selection of eating places.

We found it was an ideal base for touring the surrounding area and the North Coast. John o' Groats is only 16miles and Thurso 21 miles.

A visit to the Wick Heritage centre is definitely worth a visit.

Visited site August 2014 for 5 nights, location of site brilliant and site very clean and tidy BUT the facilities very lacking.

Toilets much too small & showers virtually impossible, far too small no room to manoeuvre whatsoever.

Also when enquired about clothes washing facility told to use one of 2 dishwashing sinks to wash by hand then use whirligig not even spin dryer available, bit inconvenient if raining the launderette in Wick has burnt down. Just felt slightly unhygienic to wash undies in dishwashing facility.

SORRY will not be returning shame because great location.

Beautiful camping nearby the town of Wick. The city centre is just a 15 minute scenic walk from the camping, leaving at the gate at the backside of the camping. The Asda supermarket is just a 10 minute walk from the front side of the camping.

The camping is reached by crossing a very low bridge. People with high vehicles, such as caravans, can call the warden and he'll show you an alternative route.

The reception is not always occupied, but the warden is easily called by ringing a bell. Next to the reception is an information desk with many leaflets on what to do in the neighbourhood. You can also borrow books here. Telephone on the site.

We could pitch our tent anywhere we liked on the tentfield. There are a couple of trees and bushes to pitch in the shade.

The toilets were in the middle of the camping. The cubicles were very small. As the doors turned inwards, you have to stand in the very tiny space between the toilet and the wall.

There was a separate sink for handwashing: there were some extra sinks for brushing your tooth, washing your face etcetera.

The showers were free, but there was a curtain instead of a door. You weren't allowed to enter the shower with shoes.

Outside, but under a roof, were 3 sinks for dishes.

I stayed here overnight with two sons who had just finished a cycle ride LEJOG. Nice reception from man on duty. It is easy to find and has good access roads for a large tourer. We were given a choice of hard standings with large pitches. The toilets and showers were ok but dated. It has a small shop with basics at reception. Wick looks like a nice little town. We got a taxi 4 to Weatherspoons for a meal and a couple of beers to celebrate finishing the epic journey. I would use it again if I was in the area.
