 Site is very well located in the middle of town - as expected this does mean it is not as peaceful as some sites.

Some of the pitches on site were overlooked by houses whilst some on the other side were next to sports facilities with flood lights ablaze on an evening.

It is also quite a small site and there appeared to be a scramble to get the best pitch !

The town itself is pleasant to walk around.

Heading up and out of town finds you on the Eildon Hills very quickly - the ascent is quick and steep but the views are worth it !

 Absolutely faultless, great location with great facilities, shower block and waste recycling points all constantly kept to a very high standard.

Price was a bit higher than expected but no too much for the amenities and the time of year.

5 minute walk to the main streets of Melrose, we also walked the Eildon hills on foot from the campsite without issue.

 Just home after our second stay at Gibson Park in Melrose.

The sun shone brightly for our weeks visit and we walked and shopped in many of the shops of which there are a great choice.

Having the Co-op on the doorstep was great.

We visited the Abbey,

The workmanship from centuries ago is magnificent

Our favourite walk was along the river on the far side of the bridge

Our dog loved the river and swam happily and careered all over the place.

I canít complain about Gibson Park

The facilities were first class. The staff worked very hard to keep the park in tip, top condition. During our week there was a lot of coming and going and the system in place is excellent.

We are already planning to visit again in the autumn

 Well cared for, leafy site with lots of flower tubs scattered around. Melrose Gibson is right in the middle of things with the Co-op right outside the site.

Melrose itself is a fantastic town. We visited the Abbey, the Roman museum (new one to open in August), and had lunch in the beer garden of Burts hotel in the Market Square - highly recommended.

Lots of good walks down by the river. We'll definitely be back.

 This is a small level site right in the town centre.

The toilet block was kept clean and tidy. There is a wrist band system designed to limit the facilities to only 2 people at a time (during covid). It works if everyone understands it, but I spoke to many people whilst queuing who hadnít understood what they were supposed to do.

Melrose is a very pretty town with many places to eat, a small Co-op right next to the site and lots of independent craft and art galleries.

 Very convenient site, situated next to a park and near to Melrose and a little coop.

Friendly reception. Good system in place for using toilets and showers.

Reviewer: Bobc51 22 reviews from this member

 Used as a stop over cutting across from west o east coast. Have stayed before and always found it a pleasant clean tidy site.

Don't arrive too early as there is no room to park and wait.

Positioned on the edge of town 5 min walk to town center.

Melrose Abbey well worth a visit (we went round again)

Reviewer: Fiona W 198 reviews from this member

 Hadn't planned to stay here as we're not CAMC members so that means a substantial surcharge. But Storm Ali meant driving further wasn't sensible. So we coughed up £36 (ouch!) to stop over and be safe.

It was a friendly welcome - we've been brusquely turned away from a CAMC site before in an old motorhome, so we were a bit wary; we could choose our hardstand pitch; white markers had EHU + TV (which we didn't need). Well maintained grass & flower tubs on site.

Toilet block excellent - modern, clean, warm, plenty of showers & sink cubicles, closed only briefly for cleaning at a time that was not inconvenient. There's a dedicated dog walk but although it was well fenced, the sign said 'dogs on lead' so that's what happened. A much bigger & more open option (but still on-lead) is the grass field at the site entrance.

Melrose is a few minutes walk away; it's a small Borders town with some good galleries; a superb wine / spirits / coffee shop; riverside walks by the chain bridge; and an Abbey that is well worth paying to go into because of the wealth of stone carving detail there (climb the bell tower for the views). National Trust for Scotland has - inexplicably - closed its wonderful dried flower centre at Priorwood and the NTS Harmony gardens serve only as a setting for the house that's rented out. That's not the CAMC site's fault. Co op next door is handy.

It's unlikely we'll be back soon - we'd have joined if the sums stacked up, but even the members' rate was noticeably more than we'd paid at other sites in the Borders, and we didn't use most of the facilities we'd paid for.

Reviewer: Noeliewoly 5 reviews from this member

 Overpriced and disappointing sums it up. Pitches are nearly all hard standing and if you are not a club member the prices are extortionate. We could only get in for one night and I'm glad, in hindsight. ' Didn't seem to be a friendly site and I think some of the members are a bit up their own *****. The location however was really good being right next to the town and co op supermarket. Also there seems oodles to do in the area with many tourist sights. The wash facilities were good and modern but nothing to warrant the price of £36 for one night when we didn't even pitch the awning.

 We enjoyed our stay at Gibsons; the location is good, close to Melrose's beautiful town centre, but not too close, and there is plenty of good walking from the site; in particular, the banks of the River Tweed and the walk up and over the Eildon Hills are highly recommended.

We were offered a choice of pitches, which is nice, and chose one at the far corner of the site, adjacent to some playing fields. The site is perhaps a bit over manicured for my taste, but no doubt this will suit some.

Facilities were very good.
