 We used this site as a stopover on route to Mull, and I would suggest that its about its limit. All the pitches are hardstanding which is handy for just pulling up and moving again in all weathers. There is some road noise however it drops off at night. The facilities are adequate but due a revamp. The games room has been removed to add more washing machines as the town use this place for laundry!

There's a handy dog walk round the site and all the basics are here.

Off the site the town is useful for stocking up at the shops or fuel however its not a visitors town unlike many in the area. For example the pubs look very local orientated! Couple of takeaways to. The town looks a little economically depressed unfortunately. The town is a very easy walk from the site which is handy.

 Stayed over the May Bank Holiday. This is a great site, the showers, toilets, etc. Were spot on. The owner was friendly and helpful.

The site is situated on the edge of the town and forms an excellent base from which to explore. We drove to Ardfern for a boat trip to Jura. We also recommend a visit to Tarbert and Crinan. The Crinan Canal walks are fantastic.

As other folk have mentioned, Lochgilphead itself is a little 'tired' but still provides a pleasant visit. We have fallen in love with the area and plan to visit again next year.

 I originally stayed here about 4 or 5 years ago at Easter, so both visits have been out of the peak season. On both occasions I've found the site to be friendly, welcoming and clean. The tent area was quiet (although I imagine it fills up in July and August) and the toilets and showers were clean.

The nicest touch is that they have a coffee machine in the laundrette. Every site should have one!

Reviewer: Worldoftofuness 15 reviews from this member

 I originally only intended to use the dryers here-- but ended up staying on the recommendation of a camper. So just to note--if you see lots of cars milling round near the entrance, nothing dodgy going on, it's just that the laundrette (which has plenty of machines) serves the town not just the campsite.

Mostly this is a fairly bog-standard site: has a clean toilet-block, and the radio playing in it is a nice touch.

The main downside is hinted at in the site's name: it caters largely for caravans, so if you're in a tent the toilet-block is rather a walk away round rows of statics.

Much of the tent area was a bit waterlogged on my visit. If you've a small tent, you can put it on one of the little banks in the middle of the park--but obviously not much use for a family tent (and you still have to walk across the 'swamp' to get to your tent).

The open plan nature of the site combined with high winds meant when I was there you had to painstakingly weight down anything you put down or see it blow 100m away. This contributed to me departing the site well past midday--plus point to the management for not making a fuss about this!

 Just back from this caravan park and couldn't fault it. If it wasn't for our tent letting us down we wouldn't have been home.

The park itself is nice and friendly but most of all clean. The toilet block is clean and well kept. The tent pitches are ok but the ground can become a bit marshy after rain but that didn't put us off.

The staff are very helpful and really nice.

We took our dog and even she loved it.The small play area for the kids was ample and well situated for keeping an eye on them.

Lochgilphead town is much to be desired a bit run down and shops over priced due to no competition.

I will be coming back to this site as soon as our tent problem is resolved.

 Nice enough site with good showers etc.

Unfortunately the site is also infested with midges - we were being eaten alive within minutes of stepping out of the car.

It rained for one day whilst we were there, and frankly Lochgilphead itself does not offer a lot.

Most of the restaurants were closed, and the town really looked as though it is falling apart.

Reviewer: Grumpyhippy 6 reviews from this member

 A great site for exploring, with superb walks/cycle trails locally, suitable for everyone from family trundles along the Crinan canal, to hardcore 'crash and burn ' stuff for the brave! The site was clean,tidy and quiet, with good facilities, cheery, helpful staff and varied types of pitch to suit all. Lochgilphead itself is a pleasant place, with a wide variety of shopping/eating and a great frontage onto Loch Fyne. Among the many places for a day out,Oban is about an hour away with all its ferry connections to the Isles, the fascinating Kilmartin glen is on your doorstep as is the Kintyre peninsular. All in all a great site for introducing yourself the west coast of Scotland. I loved it!

 Well, what a great little site! We stayed here for 2 nights on our way back south from Oban and the Highlands. The site is well kept, the grass well cut, and the facilities well clean! It was a pleasure to go to the toilet! The pitches were of a great size with each pitch being close to a water tap.
The site itself is within walking distance of small town which is on the shores of Loch Fyne. Close to the site is a canal which has a great towpath to jog and cycle on. We cycled along it to a great hotel where we were fed and watered before heading back. Wicked!

Reviewer: Us2pluscaravan 2 reviews from this member

 Lovely camping/caravan site. Really well thought out. Each hook up is next to a tap so there is no need to walk for water. The toilet and showers are very clean, I really liked this site, would recommend this site to anyone. The toilet and showers are very clean and all free.
Very friendly and a lovely village, with loads to do around.

 Well maintained and friendly site very close to Lochgilphead centre.
Clean toilets and showers and well maintained grounds, including childrens play area and separate dog walking area. Electrical hook ups available and free use of showers etc. Nice site!
