 Found this site by following the brown sign posts for a caravan site in Dalbeattie itself. Nice position on the edge of town next to a large park, the Football ground and Primary School. It was just a short walk to the shops and restaurants and also a fascinating free Museum.

Spent 4 nights there and for most of them we were on our own - it was like having a private bathroom. The toilet block had 2 toilets and one shower in both ladies and gents and while dated they were very clean and had plentiful hot water with soap and towels provided. The separate dishwashing also had soap provided and the washing machine and dryer were the cheapest I had come across, only £2 for the washing machine. The free wifi was a bonus.

 Just returned from a pleasant stay at this site. Small and compact with friendly proprietor. Facilities are basic but clean and adequate. Site handy for local park with good children's play equipment, small children will need supervision as there is a lake in the park. Town centre 5 mins walk away. Lots to see and do in the area, lots of forest walks and mountain bike trails. Be sure to visit nearby Kippford, excellent meals at the Mariners pub.

 Just returned from a great long weekend at this site, two families with 7yr old boys. The site is small & compact, nestled in a quiet area behind a fantastic park setting, owners are friendly and always around to help but leave you get on with your stay too.

Facilities are small & basic with loads of hot water and very clean, only downside is the very poor water power in the showers. It is very easy going & relaxed.

The town is only a few minutes walk away from the site, locals are friendly and there are all the amenities you need for a holiday break, further afield there are lovely walks, cycle paths & beaches.

This is our first time in Dumfries & Galloway but we'll definitely return to this area and Islecroft.

 My husband myself and our 6 young children spent a very enjoyable and memorable 2 weeks at this site. It was our first camping holiday and we weren't disappointed.

The owners were very pleasant and helpful, the shower/toilet block was always immaculately clean, good washing up facilities and a great washing machine and tumble drier very reasonably priced may I add!

The site was quiet and relaxed and we weren't far from a great playpark, football pitch, pitch n putt and row boat hire. Shops, butchers etc all within short walking distance. Highly recommended!

 Stayed at Islecroft for a week with several other UKCS members.

A nice friendly site with very helpful owners, nothing was too much trouble for them.

The site is adjacent to a nice park with an excellent children's play area with modern equipment and boats for hire.

The town centre with shops, cafés, chippy and museum is only 100 yards from the site.

I would definitely go there again.

Reviewer: Jambonick 1 review from this member

 I visited this campsite recently with my girlfriend and found it to be quiet, peaceful and a great base to explore the surrounding area which was just what we were looking for. Although not spending a great deal of time in the campsite (two nights) we found that the sites facilities were excellent and well looked after. The campsite itself was situated in the town of Dalbeattie but this should not be seen as a disadvantage. We were near enough to shops, pubs and restaurants to walk to easily however the campsite itself is hidden away behind the local park. This park also had a great playground for anybody travelling with children. The rates were also very reasonable. Will visit again soon.

 I stayed here for two weeks and had an enjoyable stay. The site is very well run with friendly and helpful proprietors. The facilities are clean and well maintained, and is situated in a convenient position just off the town centre. if you are looking for a country retreat this won't be for you but for a relaxing value for money stay you will be hard pressed to find better in the area. I will definitely be going back!

 I first visited Islecroft Caravan park as a young child back in 1985, ever since then I've visited every year. It's situated in an amazing little village that offers all you need for a weekend away and also a long stay, plenty of pubs,local grocery shops, take aways and also restaurants.

The site it's self is situated next to a Sunday league football teams enclosed ground (namely Dalbeattie Star). There are 30 pitches some hard stands and some grass, all have electric hook up points. Toilet and showers are immaculate and cleaned regularly! The site wardens are excellent, friendly and will do any thing to help you!! the local people are friendly as well!

For the kids there is a big park only 40seconds walk away from the site which consists of climbing frames, swings, see saw, boating lake, mini golf, tennis courts, football field and there's also a nice stream runs through the park.
Just a short journey away there are a number of beaches and coastal villages to visit. There is also a wildlife sanctuary in a nearby town called kirkcudbright which is really worth a visit!
All in all it is a fantastic place to stay with all been made welcome including pets, either if your wanting somewhere to relax or if your looking for things to do,then you certainly won't go wrong by pay Islecroft Caravan Park a visit!!!!!
