This site was OK for one night stop over. It had easy access to water etc with motorhome service point. Electric hook up on all pitches and we could choose where to pitch because it was almost empty when we arrived.

Plenty of space for dog walks around the edge of the touring area. It was not as picturesque from the touring site as one might expect due to the statics in view, and we were disappointed that an evening stroll along lakeside path just took us to the busy main road, where there is no footpath to get to Inveraray.

Generally clean and facilities OK. The town is worth a stop and has 4 dedicated motorhome parking spots (full when we arrived), plus plenty of other space to park the van in a large pay and display. The factory shop is same as Edinburgh Woollen Mill so disappointed not to see something local.

Overall, it was a welcome stop over in a long drive down to Campbelltown.

Loch side park mainly populated by statics with a touring area to one end. The fully serviced, electric and water, pitches were closer together than on some sites but most had grassed areas around them.

We were told we could pitch anywhere free which we appreciated at the time. During our first evening a large group of about 20 Italian motorhomes arrived and had also obviously been told they could pitch anywhere. I feel it may have been better if a group of this size were placed together by the site management as we and other visitors were overrun by these group members going between motorhomes, calling out and disturbing the peace that had reigned up to that point. Unfortunately it appeared to be the group leader who parked next to us with his habitation door facing ours. They left early the next morning and we were hearing reports of this group from alm over Scotland for the next week or so. :)

There are pleasant woodland walks around the site and the shore is accessible directly from site. We didn't try the toilets and showers as we use our own. There was no sign of recycling when we were there, just biffa bins, which we found disappointing.

At 26/night it was getting on the dear side but we plan to return as it is one of the closest sites to where we live.

We had always been put off staying here by the sight of hundreds of static vans. Don't be! We'd planned one night & stayed two because we liked it so much. No tents but there were pup tents beside some campervans.

The campsite is almost out of sight of the statics with glorious wide views of Loch Fyne & the hills - one evening the shore was lined with people photographing the sunset. Moonlight on the water later was spectacular. No road noise. And very popular for all things water related - we saw paddle boards, inflatable dinghies, canoes & kayaks being carried to the shore, and wet suits drying on the grass. There's a motorhome dump & adjacent manhole cover for the CDP, with the two water hoses (drinking or rinsing) very clearly labelled.

The toilet block was spotless, but the Ladies floor did get damp because the showers leaked out of the cubicles (was the portacabin floor sloping?) & people didn't use the mop. There's one generous family cubicle with shower, loo & sink. Varying mobile reception (from 4G to zero) & no Wifi. Didn't use the wee restaurant on site. 26 for 2 adults.

We enjoyed visiting Crarae Gardens (NTS), famous for its rhododendrons, and Inveraray Castle - as seen in Downton Abbey, and still lived in by the proprietor of the campsite.

Finally, another reason we'd come back - the dog loved it. Off-lead walking in both directions in the woods beside the site along the shore.

One night 2 people -26 with hook up (standard). Toilet block appeared a little inadequate especially as it appeared to be used by some from the static cabins (reasonably clean). Mixture of hard standing and hard standing/grass. Good space between units. Not really our cup of tea to be honest. Large complex. Close to Loch side - diving school on site.

Stayed for 3 nights over Easter as part of our Highlands tour. Good value as we paid in advance and not busy so had a choice of pitches and nothing between us and the loch (might be more of a car park during busy times). Fab views over loch towards mountains. Pitches were flat and a mixture of grass/gravel. Excellent hot showers in modern portakabin.

Loch-side and field walk into Inverary (good Co-op en route). George Hotel dog-friendly and great food and service. Fish and chip shop overpriced. No wi-fi but good mobile signal. Pitches totally separate from static homes, which in any case were well cared for.

Recycling bins needed near pot washing area.

We really enjoyed our stay.

Stayed two nights mid week, mid April in one of the wooden camping pods - you need to bring everything except your tent, but they are very well made & comfortable. There is lighting, a heater, a worktop, food cupboard, electric kettle, curtains, plenty of power sockets, a veranda and picnic table. You can park one car by each pod on gravel based hardstanding.

The site itself is mainly statics but don't let this put you off as the touring 'field' is self contained with its own toilet/shower block and a separate washing up building. Both were very clean and well maintained, though neither especially spacious. We assumed most of the caravans & motorhomes use their own facilities? Bring an umbrella and a torch as a midnight loo stop will take a couple of minutes from the furthest pods.

There was a shop, clubhouse and launderette at reception but we did not use them.

Inveraray: you can walk to town along a flat off-road path. Most of it is gravel but there are also two fields to cross.

We would also recommend the Crinan Canal for its excellent towpath walking and views across to Jura at its western end. Nearby is Dunadd Fort, from the A816, is a cracking little rocky hill famous for its footprint shapes carved into the rock where the ancient kings were proclaimed ruler. No charge, there is a large car park and plenty of information boards.

Any problems? only that our phone booking, made the week before, had been 'lost' so there was some confusion on arrival. Fortunately we were the only people using the pods on these nights so it wasn't a big issue but did take a couple of minutes to sort out. I've therefore had to mark down the customer service rating but the staff were friendly and helpful.

This is a lovely site right on the shore of Loch Fyne. My granddaughter and I stayed for two nights over the Easter weekend. There were lots of pitches available at this time of year as the weather was still quite cold. We were on a hard standing pitch and there was plenty of room between pitches.

The toilet and shower block was nice and clean. There was a small shop but we didn't use it as we had plenty provisions already. Inveraray is just a five minute drive along the road with a co-op store.

We would stay here again if in the area. I likes the idea that the site is protective of nature and bees.

This was a fabulous site with fantastic views. Well kept - clean and tidy and the shower block was immaculate. We had a fully serviced pitch on tarmac. Stayed 3 nights for the price of 2 as there was an offer on for October. Lady in reception was very helpful - would definitely recommend and return when in the area. Only a couple miles from Inveraray and there is a car park there with 6 bays for motor homes.

Very good location.

We stayed at this very nicely located campsite just 2 miles from Inverary. The touring pitches mostly hand standing are situated overlooking Loch Fyne. The two ladies at reception are absolutely great and natural comediens. The showers/toilet blocks are a short walk from all the pitches and are clean/tidy with an abundance of hot water. There is also a small Bistro/bar/shop next to the reception.

We stayed 3 nights here and definitely go back.

There a few short walks available from the site along the loch.

In Inverary there is a good CO-OP Store with parking, and the town is a short walk from the Co-op.

Reviewer: Marramc48 15 reviews from this member

Spent a very enjoyable three nights on this site. Quickly booked in and given directions to the touring section of the park and told to choose our own pitch. We had the choice of all the pitches (except the seasonal ones). Hot water was plentiful in all of the toilet/shower and wash up facilities and were kept clean and tidy by the site personnel but as is usual at sites, some inconsiderate users did not realise the purpose of the mop they passed when leaving the shower, nor how to leave the wash up sinks clean and tidy ready for the next person to use.

All of the pitches faced the loch. The front two rows were all hard standing and those behind had a grassed area to the side. There are nine Wigwams/Pods located around the perimeter of the touring site.

For those with dogs there are plenty of tracks in the woods behind the site and a walk along the front towards Inveraray. The site fees were 25-00 per night, but if staying 3 nights units only pay for 2.
