This site gets the prize for the most welcoming reception of our week's holiday - very helpful and friendly staff. We loved our time here, the adjacent Country Park was ideal for good dog walks, we never went the same way twice. There's a motorhome point for draining the grey water and topping up the clean water tank. The showers were a bit tepid, but free -the toilet block lights are activated by movement, and the sensor is out of sight when you're in the showers so the lights went off: luckily there are plenty of windows. The leaves were still off the trees, and it may be more shady in summer. We're so keen to come back that we timed how long it took to get home, for next time. Loads of places to visit within an easy drive, such as Huntly Castle (Historic Scotland) and many National Trust for Scotland properties.

First visited this site a couple of years ago, just after the new owner took over. Seemingly there were a load of new ideas and updates going to the site as it was a bit neglected by the local council. Well it's now 2 years later and I would say the condition of the site has deteriorated immensely. We visit around 3 times a year for anything up to a fortnight. No new toilet block, no hot water in the laundry for a whole season (we were told it's in the process of being repaired/ updated) The whole site looked un-kept and tired. Loads of empty pitches in the static area (I reckon they moved away, as some of the caravans looked quite new) No wardens going around when you needed them, dogs running loose and hedges uncut and overgrown. No digital TV, no wifi (a must nowadays)Very, very disappointed as I used to love going here every year.

Stayed at Haughton Caravan Park last weekend. Lovely time away.

Site is very nice and quiet. Pitch size good, only thing is hard ground to put up awnings, we managed but took a little time, even bent 1 of the hard standing pegs. Wardens friendly and helpful. Plenty toilets and the showers are good. Close to Aberdeen for a shopping spree!

Would definitely go back again.

Good site toilets and showers were clean, the showers gave a very good pressure of water. Downside was the fact you had to use a code to get in the toilet block, but most of the time you didn't need it as the door would be open. Lovely walks around site and into the village. Supermarket was close by also. We played golf at Alford which is a lovely course in very good condition, it is just up the road from the camp site.

A very nice site, the tent area is in a walled garden which provided good shelter from the windy conditions that prevailed during my stay. The site is just outside of Alford, a small village with a few shops and a transport museum.

The wardens were helpful and booking was simple. The site was quite busy at the weekend so booking is advisable I think.

Site facilities are ok with plenty of loos and showers. There are also plenty of play areas and a mini-golf course. It's not too far to Aberdeen and there are plenty of other places to visit too including several castles. A walk up Mither Tap from the Bennachie visitor centre is recommended.

The only downside to the site is that it seems to attract lots of families who don't have volume controls on their voices - don't stay here if you are wanting somewhere quiet!

We booked the Don Caravan for 6 of us and I have to say that the customer service from booking to leaving was amazing! Never have I been actually shown to my caravan never mind given a tour round it and shown how to work everything from TV/DVD to the Heating.

We were all impressed including my Mother which is no mean feat. The caravan was immaculate and everything was included even a washing up pack. The beds were so beautifully made up that we took pictures, none of the just throw on a quilt cover. We had a problem with a blocked toilet halfway through the week. We told reception early in the morning as we were going for a day trip and it was as good as new when we got back, it had been raining extremely hard through the night and some of the drains on site couldn't cope.

Alford itself is a lovely wee village and the Transport Museum and Heritage centre are well worth a visit. There are several corner shops all within walking distance as the Park itself does not have a shop. There is also a medium sized CO-OP about 10 mins walk away which we did most of our shopping at.

There are two Large swing parks that are good for younger children and the park itself has some lovely woodland walks.

We usually camp with a tent so we checked out the toilet block while there and the showers were great, good pressure and hot water. Talked to a few campers and they had no complaints with them. We have picked our pitch number for when we go back as the friendly welcome and customer service were great and the area is great for a base to explore the surrounding towns and Cairngorm National Park.
