 Nice site, hard standings with ehu, toilet block very clean if a little outdated, showers could do with a little more pressure, situated southern end of town. Easy access to all amenities in town. A few pubs to choose from and places to eat, found the Smiddy's excellent for food. Good base for surrounding areas. Canal path a few yards away for Ardrishaig or Crinan walk/cycling. Will definitely be using this site again.

 Stayed two nights here in May towards the end of a two week tour of Scotland and really liked it. It is urban so don't expect any views but it is only a short walk to the main street and even shorter walk to views of sea loch. A decent COOP is not far away too. We based ourselves here to explore the sites of Kilmartin Glen which are excellent.

A good number of hard standing places are available with EHU. There are a good few statics on the site too. In the middle of the site is camping field for tents with a few picnic tables.

Facilities were clean and smelt fresh every time you walked in.

This is a really good touring base for this part of Scotland.

 This is a very good Site, well, located in an interesting part of Argyll. It could serve as any one of a stopping point on the way down the Mull of Kintyre, a different route to Oban or a base to visit the area. We hadn't booked but got a Site with ehu without any trouble. We had a hard standing with plenty of space. As others have said, toilet and amenities blocks weren't brand new but were very clean. The Site is just off the 'Main' Road but we weren't troubled by traffic noise. Free Wifi was good too. Murrays Fish Shop in town does excellent smoked salmon.

 Had an excellent week long stay at this site. The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. A short walk form the site into town with all amenities. The loch is just over the road from the site, although when the tide was out the beach appeared to be mud flats. The Crinan Canal towpath is less than ten minutes walk away and is the best surfaced towpath I have encountered in over 35 years of taking canal boat holidays. The towpath provides leisurely walks to Ardrishaig or Cairnbaan and beyond to Crinan. A handy dog exercise area is provided on site but as usual some users fail to pick up and bin dog waste. The toilets and showers were clean and well kept. There is a covered dish wash area and also a launderette which is also well used by local residents. I would not hesitate to use this site again if ever in the area in the future

 We saw the mixed reviews on here before we stayed on this site. For us, the positive reviews much more accurately reflect the site.

The owner was friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. We hadn't booked but were booked in and on a pitch in under 5 minutes. We were offered one of the hard standing pitches or the hardstanding area near the entrance. We had water fill and empty on the pitch, wifi included and ehu.

The loos and showers are old - spotlessly clean, piping hot water and good pressure (no press button either). The laundry was a godsend - 4 for a massive washing machine, then 1 for 17 minutes in the tumble dryer - 2 dryed everything we had. Not sure why the laundry bothers so many reviewers, its no different than if it was next door - the locals who use it do not come anywhere near your pitch, unless you are on the central area you wouldn't even see them.

The site is less than 2 minutes cycle from the Crinan Canal cycle path, 24 miles of dedicated cycle path - its a brilliant afternoon out. Less than a few minutes walk into town, a butchers, bakers etc - no big high street names just plenty of old fashioned shops and you can buy pretty much anything you can think of.

Would recommend this site, 19 for 2 adults with showers, ehu and wifi well worth it.

 Convenient, in-town' site. Had not booked, but warmly welcomed and found a pitch. Unfortunately, the tent area of this site is flat and low-lying and it quickly became waterlogged during prolonged rain.

Toilet and Shower facilities were clean and well maintained.

We appreciated the availability of picnic tables as we were were using a small tent - also the willingness to re-freeze ice packs.

A good site, but we would not recommend it for tent campers.

Reviewer: McCarron 14 reviews from this member

 Booked via phone, no problem. On arrival check in was fast and good information on facilities on site and for events in the area. Allowed to choose pitch and drive around touring pitch area to choose. All touring pitches are serviced with water/elec/drain, ours was big pitch loads of space and reasonably level. Chemical toilet disposal point adjacent to main toilet block. Grounds were very well kept, site is mainly for static caravans/homes but touring pitches separate from them. Toilet block is a little dated but very clean and warm and has Radio 2 playing which is a nice touch for some privacy. Extensive laundry facilities on site which serve local community also and not that busy during the day to do any washing/drying needed. A bit of background noise from the dryers on the site but switched off in evening/overnight. Location is right next to town and an easy walk to all facilities ( Bank with Cash Machine /Chip shop /pubs /hotel/ Co-op/ Chinese takeaway and all sorts of gift shops). Nice walk along loch front into town. Site is located next to main road but we didn't really suffer from too much noise, but really no views to be had from site. Petrol station at opposite end of town with Tesco Express. Good site would not hesitate to return.

Reviewer: S-and-G 10 reviews from this member

 We can't say we enjoyed staying there. The tent field is almost surrounded by motorhomes, which is a really unpleasant view, and doesn't support heavy rains, which had obviously been the case.

The toilet/shower block is pretty big, clean, but it seems to have been built 30 years ago.

There is plenty of washing machines and dryers, which is a good point.

Reviewer: Itsyum 111 reviews from this member

 This is a nice enough site, quite a few static vans and tourers used by what looked like local workers, the toilet and shower blocks are large and kept very clean although a little dated. The site is within 5 minutes walk of the town and there's a lovely walk along the canal. On the downside the main road that runs adjacent to the site is noisy and the on site laundry is in constant use by locals so there's cars coming and going all day and an annoying drone from the driers always in the background.

Reviewer: Jingleman 3 reviews from this member

 We had a lovely weekend at this wee site - here is all the important stuff that you need to know. It was september and it was very quiet but with a large number of static caravans on the site I would imagine it stays quite settled. The pitches are big - especially the super pitches - with plenty of room for awnings and parking etc. The park really actually is with in (normal person) walking distance of the town center which is very handy indeed. There is plenty to do and see in the local area not least that you can go for nice walks along the Crinan canal and look at all the boats.

The only downside I could see was that it appears the locals use the site laundry facilities as a laundrette - meaning that if you aren't fast to the machines then you may have to queue. All in all though - I recommend this site and we will go back.
