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.

Spent three days there beautiful site only let down by the width 0f the toilet cubicles far to narrow had to squeeze in and out and the position of the toilet paper dispensers did not help and sadly closed for a hour and a half each day for cleaning.

It was a short walk to the shops and pubs along by the river that was beautiful.

The wardens where very friendly and helpful.

Had a brilliant stay here, loved it! We have a large Motorhome and the owner came and met us at the local Tesco and escorted us down a river road into the site. There is a sign on the other entrance asking you to telephone if you are a larger vehicle so do not attempt to go under the bridge!

Such a friendly site and beautifully looked after. Key pad entry to toilet/showers and always found them to be very clean and tidy indeed!

Pitches are large and level and plenty of room between.

You will not be disappointed with this one and we will definitely return.

Had an enforced stop in Wick due to my wife becoming seriously ill whilst we were touring the Highlands in our motorhome. My wife was admitted to Cathness General Hospital for 9 days and had wonderful care. The campsite was ideal for me and was within a 10 minute walk to the hospital along the side of the river. The site owners were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. They keep the site so clean and tidy and the facilities were spotless. Wick has everything you need and there is even a large CO-OP store nearby. It was such a pity that my wife couldn't enjoy this lovely campsite, but now she is recovering we will certainly visit again once she is well enough for us to continue our holiday to this beautiful area. My thanks again to the owners for looking after me, and to all the friendly people of Wick and the brilliant staff of the Highlands NHS. Colin
