 Nice site with good views over the town. Pitches were fine with electriciy very conveniently placed behind each. Water, waste and chemical points were all clean and accessible.

Shortcut to/from town at opposite end of site from main gate - down the path through the swing park.

Minor point is that there's no recycling on-site - everything goes in the same bin. Goes against the grain a bit for us.

Would return.

 Loved this site. Fantastic location within easy walk to town.

Great views from site. Big play park and playing field next to site.

Toilet block big and always spotless. Free hot showers.

Friendly wardens.

Would love to return again.

 Lovely clean site, very friendly and very helpful warden.

Pitch for the motorhome was flat, but the grass part was on a slope, but we managed, without falling over in our chairs!

Nice walk in to town, for shopping, food and drink.

We would stay here again.

 Our 5th yr of staying here, we love this site, well kept, shower block immaculate clean,

Kirkcouldbright very friendly town,

Marred this year by 3 families both sides of us very noisy 8kids playing football outside our van when there is a massive playing field next to site, they left bags rubbish out on a night the seagulls started at 6am rubbish all over the pitch, we were gonna leave but the Warden acted swiftly and they were removed from site. Well done to him.

We will certainly be back again.

 Great site with nice staff and spotless toilets, but unfortunately the waste bin by the tenting area was full to bursting when we arrived on Friday and was overflowing till about 4 pm on Saturday.

Also, perhaps the pitch boundaries could be clarified. Maybe because of the beautiful weather more people turned up than expected or maybe because were normally on a club site, but the pitching seemed very haphazard.

Having said that, enjoyed our weekend at a place Id recommend.

 Loved it at Silver Craig campsite. Spent 5 days chilling and enjoying the views over Kirkcudbright, which is a 10min stroll to reach.

The site is very well maintained and very Covid Aware, the Shower / toilet block was lovely and clean as was the whole site.

I would definitely recommend it for a relaxing break and we will be going again in the future.

 Great open site. Set on a hill above town with great views across the hills. Many level pitches but some of the grass ones can be uneven. Friendly staff. Community owned and gradually being improved further.

Short walk (5 mins) to Kirkcudbright centre, deli, bakers, butcher, Co-op, Tesco, pub, chippy, chinese, cafes etc. Also local swimming pool and gym can be used by visitors. But call to book first, especially the pool.

Some nice walks from the site.

This was our second visit and it definitely won't be the last.

 Brilliant site. Perfect situation with town in front and woodland behind.

Good Covid precautions in place.

Facilities very clean and well kept.

Reasonably priced and easy booking system.

 A return visit to one of our favourite sites. Covid security good, and there was never any need to queue for the "3 people maximum" toilet block even though the site was (surprisingly) almost full.

Always love the sunsets and night skies here. Loved watching the Red Squirrels up at the hide in Barhill Woods. Recommend the prize winning butcher on St Mary's Street (J Hall & Sons) - their Scotch Pies are the best we've tasted.

Took the bus to castle Douglas one day (more shops than Kirkcudbright including a big Tesco), and to Gatehouse of Fleet another (plenty of walks in the Cally estate); bus stop is at the harbour, they leave every hour.

We commend the wardens, who also work at the community owned swimming pool, so they're only on site when there's work to do - cleaning the toilets 12-2, grass cutting, site maintenance etc.

One went out of his way to help several older couples move their caravans; another replied to my mid evening email within half an hour and sent me another confirmatory email before 08:30 next morning.

There are two mobile numbers displayed on the office door, they always replied quickly to my calls or texts. There is also very discrete CCTV coverage of the site.

There's continued investment by the community owners, we noticed improvements since our last visit.

We'll be back again next year, no doubt of it. It's open all year so we might even try a winter camp! 22 pn.

Reviewer: Gregor 1 review from this member

 The site was basic, friendly and well kept, toilets and showers were immaculate.

The views over the town from the site were spectacular. A short walk from the site to the town was a great advantage,

All in all worth a visit and feel we will return again.

The only fault was our pitch was was short and not level with the tarmac road making it difficult to get hitched up on departure. also the grass parking beside the gravel pitch was wet when we were leaving which made it difficult for the car to grip.
