This was my first visit to this site, it was a sea fishing expedition with my brother and 2 nephews, who had all been to this site several times before.
We had the place to ourselves, so no problem with space when pitching the tent, a Hartford XL.
The facilities are a bit basic but clean and tidy.
There is no shop on site, this didn't matter as we had stocked up at Somerfield's in Newton Stewart on the way here.
The site it's self is very well cared for, we stayed for 3 nights and the grass was mown every night!
As we were there primarily for the fishing, I did not get to explore much of the surrounding area. Although the sky was so clear at night (no light pollution here) we saw lots of shooting stars along with the orbiting satellites and much nearer still the lights of The Isle of Man.
As for the fishing, we tried; beech, rock and harbour, best result was Isle of Whithorn harbour at night.
I'd go to the site again but with the same company, as I don't think there would be enough there to appeal to my wife and children.

Reviewer: Lorrnev 4 reviews from this member

Thought campsite was really nice when we got there, really nice and clean , lot of traffic noise from the road though, this does die down at night.
We felt this site would suit caravaners better as there is no hot water for dishwashing, only a cold tap in the field.
The toilets are clean although there is only four of them and one shower for whole site which works on a meter.
The pitches are nice and spread out well, but again the small tent field is over the hedge from a busy road, so try and get into the caravan field if you can.
I wouldnt advise this site for dog owners, altho they are accepted,as the owner insists dogs do not foul the site, not even if you clean up immediatley. You will be advised that your dog should be taken off site every hour or so in order to comply with this. After this happened to us early one morning, we packed up and moved on

This is a great campsite, John & Pauline Heywood (The owners) are really friendly and helpful. The site is well kept and caters for 4/5 tents and 15 caravans with hook-ups, the facilities are basic but well maintained and  clean.
It is a short walk (500 metres) from some great beaches with caves to explore. St Medan's Golf Club, Scotland's southern most Golf Course is about 300 metres from the campsite, (Discounted green fees if you are staying at the campsite). 
It is only a 20/30 minute drive from all kinds of attractions, (Whithorn, Portpatrick, Port Logan, Wigtown (Book Town) & Newton Stewart). If you're into cycling, this is the place to be, the local roads are 'relatively' flat and there is some great off-roading/forest/mountain biking facilities at nearby Kirrroughtree in Galloway Forest near Newton Stewart. 
Nearby Port William has a small store that will provide all your basic needs.

A very nice family campsite. We visited for a week last year and stayed in the cottage which is available to book, in addition to the tent and caravan site. Lots to do locally, trips out to Galloway, Castle Douglas, the beach and golfing all within a stones throw.

A small shop that sells a few basics, but only 3 miles to Port william where you can buy all your basics, and those fabulous scottish breakfast bread rolls. Will definitely be back sometime in the future.
