 A stunning location, well kept site. No facilities open obviously due to Covid restrictions.

Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Has a slipway you can use for canoeing, paddle boarding or open water swimming.

 Beautiful location with friendly helpful wardens greeting us on arrival and escorted us to our pitch.

With a caravan and awning there wasn’t really enough space for our car on the pitch without parking it completely blocking view to the Loch so we ended up parking it in the campers area parking as currently no tents on site.

Real highlight was the wonderful walks from the site for breathtaking views of the surrounding area. We also visited the Art Gallery which was absolutely top class and some really talented artists work on display and for sale.

The site was really quiet and tranquil - a real gem!

 Fantastic site in a great location. This site is immaculate, one of the best maintained sites we have been to in a long time, more so in these difficult times. Hard standing pitches were weed free, large and level, grass was cut to perfection elsewhere.

Facilities were closed due to Covid as was small on site shop, but local meat produce from the site farm was available on request. Welcomed on arrival by friendly, helpful warden and shown to pitch, shown where motorhome service point was and where nearest water/grey waste point was.

Pitch looked onto the loch opposite with lovely views to mountains beyond. Great dog walk on site either a short 15 minute circuit around the wooded area or venture further up the hill direct from site to Ben Resipole which is 3 hour trip. Beach opposite site is mostly rocky and not great to walk along.

There are a couple of Forestry Commission picnic spots either direction from the site within a reasonable walk or short drive. Access from Corran ferry is mostly single track road (from Strontian onwards) to site, but has plenty of passing places. Shop for provisions is in Strontian or past the site in Salen.

Great location to explore the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, recommend visit to Sanna Bay and or Lighthouse at most Westerly Point on mainland UK ( approx 1. 45 hours trip each way ).

 Amazing views of Loch Sunart. Beautifully kept site, very approachable staff.

Narrow roads to get their but some breath taking views - well worth the journey

 Just spent two nights here recently. What a lovely site. Met near the gate by Tim who cycled ahead to show you to your pitch. We had a fantastic view right down Loch Sunart.

The pitches are spacious and the grass is short and well kept. No facilities were open due to Covid-19. There is a good motor home service point. Be aware that whichever route you take to get there is narrow, passing places roads. Not for the faint-hearted and pretty tricky for long caravans/twin axles etc. But it is so worth it.

We were extremely lucky with lovely summer weather. About 4 miles away is the village of Salen which has a hotel/pub. Also Strontian is close too and has a shop, post office etc. Across the road is the loch and there are some nice walks too.

There were two glamping pods for hire too. It's the kind of site you need to be sort of self sufficient at as you're not really going to pop out anywhere too close for something you've forgotten.

 If you go camping in the west of Scotland in August then you can expect to be pestered by midges. For about 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the afternoon / evening that was the case. We stayed inside the tent in the morning and were sometimes elsewhere for the evening midge-fest. The rest of the time there was no issue with midges. Probably the situation helps as it is right at the angle of Loch Sunart with a clear view straight down towards the sea. Breezes from all directions and the views are absolutely stunning.

The midges (irritation level not desperation level) were the worst thing about our stay. Almost (more of that later).

For the rest we had a great time. We used the Corran Ferry a lot, it cuts off a drive of about 40 miles and that includes some narrow twisty roads with blind bends such as you can expect to find in that part of Scotland. I wouldn't want to tow anything large along some of them but I suspect that if you know what you are about it isn't too bad. The A861 which runs past the site is "interesting", up and down, narrow, twisty but perfectly do-able. It is also pretty quiet. Very little passes the site at any time of day. Rush hour seems to consist of about 20 cars a couple of lorries and a bus. Although the site borders the road and we were in one of the "front" pitches nearest the road, traffic wasn't a problem.

The site itself if extremely well maintained, the toilet block and washing up area spotless at all times. The shop has a decent supply of food and some emergency bits and pieces just in case you might have forgotten anything. Everybody was friendly and helpful.

There's another couple of shops within 15 minute drive (one in each direction) but there was enough in the site shop that we didn't need to go to them (though we did). Both sell decent coffee and "deli" food as well as basics like bread and milk.

There's plenty to do in the area. Lots of places to walk, watch the wildlife and so on. Ardnamurchan Lighthouse is worth the drive, the drive itself gives some stunning views (but not many stopping places from which to admire them). The ferry to Mull is within a short drive, Mallaig and Fort William a little further but easy day trip territory. We spent the only wet day of our holiday in Fort William. There was enough to keep the pair of us entertained and plenty of choice about where to eat.

The other not so good thing about the site is something nobody could do anything about. On our last evening the site owner/manager came round and warned everybody that high winds were forecast for the following morning probably between 9 and 12. Well, that was fine as we were leaving early next day anyway so we would be well out of the way by 9. Except the winds arrived 6 hours early. 40mph broadsided our tent and took out two (fibreglass) roof poles. We weren't the only tent suffering. But that's one of the "joys" of camping and that could happen anywhere.

Would we go back? Yes. But probably not soon. It's a great site but we try to go somewhere different every year and for us it's a bit of a trek from the darkest reaches of east Kent.

Summary: great site, fantastic location.

 We were looking for somewhere to continue our holiday with an additional 2 nights and had a look on the map on a whim and thought Resipole looked good. I checked the reviews which were all favourable and they turned out to be accurate.

Greeted on arrival and given choices of where to pitch as weather was difficult to predict. This is a very well run site, cleanliness second to none and lovely hot showers, most welcome after a few damp nights in a tent!

It is in a more remote location but a wee shop sells basics and there are wee cafes and restaurants within a 10 minute drive. We meant to stay 2 nights but the weather wasn't great and so we cut our stay which was a shame as we liked the site and there was a nice atmosphere.

Lovely lady in the shop too!

 Lovely, well kept site. Friendly owners and staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Generous pitches. Pods looked great. Ideal for a quiet, relaxing break. Dog friendly.

Lovely views of loch sunart. Good, free hot showers at all times. An unspoilt corner of uk. Very few places like this left!

Nature at it's best!

 We normally camp in a tent but decided to experience a stay in a camping pod. We love camping and still planned to cook on our camping stove outside but the thought that we could have heat and light in a pod in the autumn evenings was appealing, as well as not having to dry out a wet tent when we returned home.

Resipole Campsite currently has two spacious and attractive pods in a lovely location backing onto ancient oak woodland and looking out over beautiful Loch Sunart. Our pod (Otter)was spacious and very warm, clean and cosy.

Two wide benches make up into a huge bed that could easily sleep a family of four. We have never had better nights' sleep! A small table with two stools is provided as well as a cupboard with fridge and kettle.

Other than these items you need to bring along your camping gear except for the tent and sleeping mats. The pods have spare electric sockets. Wifi connections were variable. Our pod had a wide porch for cooking outside under shelter.

The washrooms, washing up room and toilets were situated close by. Groceries are available in the campsite shop and an excellent village store at Salen two miles away.

The local area is a paradise for naturalists. It is scenic and unspoilt. Travel is delightfully slow on narrow single track roads.

 2nd visit by Bo'ness sub aqua club up to Resipole. Very clean toilets and shower block. New for 2017 was glamping pods.

These were fantastic reasonable rates finished to a very high standard. Staff work tirelessly up here cleaning and making sure everything is right will be back again only thing that could make it fantastic is a clubhouse or indoor area.

But it looks like they are thinking about it
