 Lovely site, nothing to dislike. One of the best, if not the best we've stayed on. It's a community run site with all profits going back into community benefit so you not only get a lovely stay but the added bonus of helping the local community.

Immaculately kept and very level pitches. The shower block facilities are marvellous, roomy cubicles and hot water with plenty of pressure. Plenty of sinks and toilets too and the room is kept nice and warm, my wife and daughter are very fussy and it got the stamp of approval from them.

Alfresco dish washing sinks, which is nice. They are covered though so don't panic given the occasional rain that falls in Scotland.

Very quiet site with a well observed and monitored noise policy from 10:30 - 8:30. Don't think though that this means it's not family friendly, far from it. The play area was always busy with kids during the day and evening and there is plenty of room for kids to run around.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Short walk into Ballater with good facilities. Nice dog walks along the riverside directly from the site.

 Just spent a week at Ballater and could not fault a thing. The park is beautifully presented, pitches are very generous.

Showers are the best yet on any site I have used. Piping hot, good water pressure and sparkling clean.

The staff were all extremely friendly and accommodating, working hard to keep up, the high standards on the park and making sure people enjoyed their stay.

The area is beautiful with lots of interest for almost anyone. Shops and eateries are only minutes walk away and catered for all we needed. We were really lucky with the weather too!

This park will be a favourite of ours and we can't wait to visit again!

 The best showers I have ever found on any campsite.

The site is immaculate. The staff are friendly and genuinely want you to enjoy your stay here.

The site is in a small town at the side of the river just a few minutes walk from plenty of places to eat and drink.

We were on motorcycles, and felt welcomed which isn’t always the case at some sites.

We will definitely be returning.

Reviewer: Artic 15 reviews from this member

 This is a fabulous site.

This must be one of the best sites we have stayed on.

The friendliness of the wardens was exceptional.

The pitches are flat and spacious. The toilet facilities were excellent, showers were power showers with plenty of hot water.

WiFi was free.

There was a play area for the children.

You can walk to the village from the site, there are several places which serve food. The supermarket is the coop, and a very nice bakery next door.

The easy cycle path runs from the information office which used to be the railway station.

Also there is free parking behind the church.

We would definitely visit this site again,

 Owned by the community, we used the site as a base whilst Mtbing in the surrounding area. Level, spacious pitches kept immaculately clean. Free WiFi, electricity included.

Powerful, hot showers controlled by a proper valve, not 'push button'.

Not especially cheap but worth it. One if the best sites we've used in the UK in over 20 years of first, tent, then campervan camping.

Reviewer: Dubdogs 147 reviews from this member

 Had a very enjoyable couple of nights stay here. The pitch was nice and flat, the site was immaculately maintained and the greeting on arrival was very friendly. Great views and the sound of the river from the pitch was nice. The facilities really were superb and kept clean, with powerful hot showers.

Ballater village had a good range of amenities, shops and a couple of takeaways; we had a very good curry selection from Lochnagar Indian. There was really nice walking directly from the site and also a few marked trails of varying length to follow.

All-in-all an excellent site and one we’ll look forward to returning to.

 Excellent site. Friendly reception on arrival and quick check in.

Site well laid out and very tidy. Toilets look new and were spotless. Lots of room in the shower cubicles and plenty of hot water at a high pressure.

Minutes to walk into the town. Second visit to site and will definitely come again.

 This is one of our favourite sites! Great location within the lovely town of Ballater with everything you need.

Great pitches and you can chose your pitch location at the time of booking online, which is a great touch! Great friendly staff too! Well worth a visit!

Reviewer: LozzaS5 19 reviews from this member

 What a brilliant site.

Excellent location for accessing town with scope to walk, cycle etc as well as going further afield to Balmoral, Braemar and Banchory. Site facilities immaculate and spacious and of a very high standard. Site well maintained. A Phoenix rising from the ashes after the horrendous floods.

Understandably it's booked up most weekends through the season so will be making a firm reservation for next Spring. Site likely to be extended next year with second toilet block which no doubt will be as good as the existing one. Good size pitches, all hard standing and tent areas. Staff very pleasant and informative.

This community venture deserves to do well. No longer any statics due to history and Insurance but serviced units all neatly kept together so feels like a proper touring park. Only very minor criticism might be the shower water pressure which is just about adequate but otherwise first rate cubicles. No privacy sink cubicle but the space put to better use by plentiful showers.

Hook ups close to units and plentiful water points with a Motorhome service area. A great place on all fronts.

Reviewer: VangoMan02 21 reviews from this member

 Just spent another short break at this excellent site. Its in good hands being ran by the local community.

Good size hardstanding pitches with hookup and all other spotless services within easy reach.

Its a good level site and 5 minutes walking to the town.

One other thing I like about this site is that you can pick your pitch when booking. You can see the site plan with pitch numbers, it also tells you which pitches are still available to book.
