Nice little campsite. Had a lot of rain and the site was very wet en muddy. It's nerby the Findhorn Foundation, with a shop and a pizzeria (only open th-fr-sa-su). Shop opens at 10am and has a lot of nice (but expensive) organic groceries. Toilets en showers are okay, but a bit old and not much water in the shower.

It's a long walk to the village (20-25 minutes). In the village is a little Premiere-shop. Very nice was the boat trip in the fast boat, which you can book in the Marine. We saw a lot of Seals and a few Dolphins.

We stayed here 1 night on our travels. On arriving, we were allocated our pitch and when we drove into the actual park, it felt like the Caravan/Motorhome area was a passing thought to make use of a spare piece of ground. The park had static caravans and also catered for Tents. The pitches were all on grass and as it had rained quite heavily the previous day, it would appear that folks departing the site had struggled to drive out of the grass leaving deep ruts in the ground that we had to drive into to get to our pitch. A bit unsightly looking but not the fault of the park itself. The pitches were large which was good as we had our motorbike trailer with us. There was no view at all of Findhorn Bay. Our view was of the toilet block and although we were given a code for the toilets, the doors were constantly open all day and night with kids running in and out having water fights. Toilet/Shower block was OK but with all the traffic these toilets should be getting cleaned more than once a day. We were also told to keep our dogs on a lead at all times, again, no fault of the park, but people were just letting their dogs run free on the park. You could not exercise your dog on the campsite, but there was nowhere else to do this unless you walked them on the busy road next door. Upside, park was next to a lovely Eco village with a couple of pottery shops to browse through and a lovely Crepe stall that we tried on our stay.

Relaxed site, with an older but clean toilet block, with code entry.

The site is within the Findhorn Community, where there is a lovely cafe and you can sit outside with dogs.

Cross the main road at the entrance to the Community and you are on Findhorn beach. It's a lovely walk along the beach to Findhorn itself. Can recommend the Kimberley for lunch, also dog friendly.

Stayed here for 6 nights. Very quiet campsite (aside from road next to the tent area), basic play park for the kids and a toilet block with power point for hairdryer. Pitches have numbers and easy to find

Tents are confined to a strip of grass which is next to the road into Findhorn, the noise did bother me at times but did not carry on through the night. The larger pitches at the front are relatively flat, no rock pegs required but felt very cramped. Some of the smaller pitches at the rear are mostly trees, I met one family trying to work out how to bend their tent around the trees on their pitch (despite the tent being within the stated size limit). In the end they requested to change pitch and had more space than I did on the larger pitch.

The dishwashing area was fine, covered and plenty hot water. Wasn't keen on the showers though. Three showers in the ladies and it was an art getting the water temp to anything other than freezing or scalding, also not too comfortable having other campers shower water washing over my feet. No family bathroom so a bit of a squeeze getting 3 of us washed and toddler attempted to exit under the cubical door mid wash. Nice and clean though with no mould on the shower curtains.

Toilets have a key pad lock which is high enough to stop young kids getting in without assistance, a great idea until someone hooks the door open. Toilets weren't cleaned on the Sunday which was probably the day they most needed to be (after a busy Saturday evening).

Didn't have cause to use the waste water area which was fortunate as those who did found the stench unbearable. Having it in a locked room within the toilet block may have been a mistake.

Couldn't find anywhere to freeze my coolbox packs, suspect you have to ask reception but they were closed on Sunday so I just went to Elgin and got bags of ice which sufficed.

Really lovely beach in Findhorn and everyone is super friendly so we enjoyed our stay. Kids loved it and are clamouring to return.

2 night stay. Arrived on Friday and met at reception by helpful staff member who advised on location of pitches, which were not individually marked out or able to be reserved. Pitching area was grass only and as stated, not marked out, so find your own spot. Fine, in theory. HOWEVER, people obviously don't like each other as they generally parked up about 10 metres apart, instead of the recommended 6/7 metres. This meant that it was very difficult to find a space as two vehicles would take up space generally occupied by 3 !

Once we found sufficient room we got set up. Plenty of EHP and easy access to fresh water, ablutions and and grey water/chemical disposal. Toilet block was dated but clean and tidy with sufficent WC/sink and shower amenities, showers were good and hot. Site was clean and tidy. Childrens play area adjacent to pitches and tents were allowed directly opposite the access road.

I would return to the site and would probably recommend it as both a family and singles site. Good local shops facilities and pubs etc, all within a short walk or drive. Overall a good little site.

I would review the site higher than 9/10, however due to the lack of marked pitches, space was difficult to find.

My wife and I visited the site for one night and wished we had booked in for more!

Our reception was friendly and we were directed to the touring area where we were told that we could choose our own pitch. They do not take reservations but when I 'phoned ahead they said that there would be plenty of space (as there was). I'm not sure how it would be at high season though.

The 'touring' area has plenty of EHs and water points so filling with fresh water was easy and all pitches are near EH points. They do not have hard standing pitches though, however our grass pitch was quite flat and our MH only needed a little levelling on one side.

The toilet/shower blocks were spacious and immaculately clean and even had flowers pots and plants in them making them very homely. I understand that the water for flushing the toilets is gathered from the roof and stored for use - just as you would expect from the Findorn Foundation. The sewerage is also treated 'sustainably' with their own sewerage treatment plant (part funded by the EU). There are easy accessible recycling and rubbish facilities available.

The site is adjacent to the Findhorn Foundation village, which was great to cycle around and look at all of the various eco-houses. Opposite the camp site is Findhorn Bay nature reserve.

This will be a great site to take our grandchildren to because of the safety from vehicles and the play park on site.

There is a great crepes takeaway right at the entrance and I can highly recommend the spicy beef and mushroom crepes. There is also the Blue Angel cafe on sight with loads of homemade and organic food. You can also visit various craft enterprises in the Findhorn Foundation village.

The only downside for motorhomers, as far as I am concerned is the fact that there is no drain for emptying your grey waste. Elsan and grey waste is available but you need to take it there in a container. Being a motorhomer I prefer to be able to drive the MH to the relevant drain and empty direct from the MH.

Overall a great site which we will most definitely be visiting again for a couple of nights at least. I would also recommend this site to others.
