First time camping and we chose here.

When we checked in the boy wasn't very helpful. Just pointed to an area and said over there. Gave me the keys and didn't tell me what they where for. Fortunately another employee took me over and explained where I was going to find that I was actually EUH and the younger boy had told me the wrong place!

So we pitched up and had lovely scenery views of the lough and park-areas looked clean and tidy. Tent area wasn't very busy and all was well. Until nightfall and the wardens had gone home.

First its worth noting that they have huge floodlights that point out onto the tent areas. Not good when trying to get your kids to sleep let alone yourself. Also because of this you will be attacked by all the flys on the way to the shower rooms.

They also let tents of young people stay. This isnt a problem in my eyes until the drinking starts and the music?, singing?, and loud shouting voices start. This in turn leads to them using the bathroom continuously through the night banging the doors each time. Which is very loud in the middle of the night!

There's a cafe on site which you get a 10% discount voucher for your stay. Food was good and well priced. There's a petrol station, chinese takeaway, winemark and a fryers tuck a 5 minute drive away.

All in all it was nice to stay and I wouldn't cross it off my list but don't think I could stay more then three nights and maybe not at a weekend.

Our initial impressions where great, nice reception, overhead barrier locked at all times, ie. Good security, the bathrooms etc where adequate, them the nightmare began.

If your idea of caravanning is to get smoked out all evening by a neighbour lighting his outdoor fire basket who then spend until 4 am cursing and swearing, at top volume, playing loud music in the awning from hell, then this is the place to visit.

The staff go home at 7 pm, enough said.

Next day we complained, something we never do. We where the ninth complaint. Next evening was just the same. Same people doing it, as apparently they always do when they come here. Ira sinn vein linked individuals who do as they please. Utter scumbags in every way.

The previous time we visited the site had 10 tourers in a group, really nice people actually but they usually parked up on a roadside.

Public sector owned and run, by smiling staff who in reality float by with little actual work and certainly who took no action to put off site known troublemakers or refuse their bookings either.

We stayed here for 3 nights with an 8 year old boy, whilst visiting relatives. For this length of time it was perfect.

The signs for the Marina are not very obvious and could easily be missed from the main road.

The pitches are laid out at an angle, and there is uneven ground in between, which makes reversing into your pitch a little difficult. Fortunately there were friendly campers who helped us. Once on the pitch, they are flat and easy to put up awnings etc.

The site is clean and tidy. The site is council run, next to the marina. So there are 'public' toilets and 'campers toilets' that are locked. The public toilets were clean during our stay. The campers toilets/showers are clean and tidy, if a little worn. Unfortunately, after dark there are large security lights attached to the toilet block walls that have thousands of insects/midges around them, so you are likely to be bitten. During the day, you can see the lights and nearby walls covered with dead insects. Not great.

As a council site, it is regularly maintained. A water tap near our pitch broke while we were there and it was fixed within a day.

The little marina shop is useful for sweets, and the café is fine. There's a little boat trip but no other water sports available unless you have a boat moored there already.

The play park is a good size (the local playgroup came to use it regularly while we were there).

The marina area is great for kids to cycle around, and is reasonably secure.

There are some good cycle paths and walks around the lake, and there are a couple of water related businesses near the lake (I bought a wetsuit at one at a reasonable price).

If you like lots to do, you will need to go further afield (Oxford Island, Craigavon water sports lake).

For a few days stay we thought it was fine, and if we take our caravan that way again to visit relatives, then we would use it again.

Just home from another great weekend at Kinnego Marina. This is a little gem of a site there are 10 pitches all with hook up and very well kept. Facilities they are very clean and warm. There is also a cafe on the site which is so handy and there food is good

I have been to this site a few times this year and am never disappointed, there are lovely walks all around you and if you enjoy wildlife there is plenty to be seen, as I found out when I left my dogs food in the awning lol.

There is a cycle trail and the Discovery centre and gift shop, there is also has a lovely cafe at the discovery centre which I think is good value for money. And have been told there are water sports to do there are plenty off shops in the towns near by. And must not forget the staff who are very friendly and helpful

We visited here with the 2 kids and it was excellent. Its only a small site with 10 caravan pitches with electric hookup. The site is laid out in a circle with grass banks between pitches. Only issue I could see was that not all pitches were suitable for an awning, so if you want to use an awning arrive early to get the best pitches. Toilets and showers were spotless and the staff very pleasant. There is a Cafe on site with excellent food. Boat trips, canoe hire etc and loads of walks are all available on site. There is a large shopping area close by consisting of petrol station, spar, 4 restaurants, fishing tackle shop, off licence etc for all your supplies. Will be back.

Just a one night stay to try out new tent but would recommend for a short stay.

2 adults 2 kids (8 & 11). Play park right beside pitches as is toilet/laundry block cafe and marina.

Bring your kayak if you have one!

Facilities very clean although as it was a warm evening (rare I know!) there were swarms of midges! There are only 10 tent pitches and they are around the perimeter of the (small) field so there was ample space for all the kids to kick a ball / play boules or indeed fly their kites! everything quietened around 1030pm so the kids got a good nights sleep while we finished our wine!.Good walks which are short enough for the kids!

There is a petrol station/supermarket, Off sales and takeaways if you need literally 2 minutes drive away.

To summarise.Great for a short stay, but possibly too quiet for more than 2 nights.

Oh yeah! dead cheap too.
