 Been a long time since we’ve been here. Lovely staff and good sized pitches. Plenty walks for dog.

Short walk into town. Facilities spotless.

Plenty places to eat in town. Nice and quiet

 Great stay at this site.

It is quiet yet it is close to the town centre and the beach, both of which can be reached by a riverside walk.

Facilities block was spotless and the staff were friendly.

 Quite nice site in an established location with trees and greenery.

Nice large pitches, however the facilities are woefully inadequate and time for an upgrade. 4 showers in ladies for 90 pitches, if it's busy, hardly any water pressure or decent temperature.

Ayr itself is a good walk away but sadly like a lot of places has deteriorated.

Served our purpose but would not return again.

 It was good to get back Ayr after the restrictions of the previous years and the chance to visit some of the local attractions. Craigie gardens is surrounded by trees, has good sized, level bays in somewhat regimented arrangement and a single amenities block.

It's a fairly easy walk into town past new and impressive university buildings. The town has a good selection of shops and cafes however it has a rather 'past its best' look - not helped by the weather at the time of visiting.

From Ayr, it is a fairly straightforward drive to Alloway, the Robert Burns museum and Burn's cottage. Both well worth a visit and free to National Trust members. Slightly further south is the spectacular Culzean castle and grounds - also National Trust.

Overall, a good base for visiting Ayrshire and if you're fans of horse racing, Craigie gardens is an easy walk from Ayr racecourse.

 O Find Site:- From the A77 town bypass take the A70 towards the town centre and at roundabout opposite Ayr Station turn right. Once over the river bridge, at roundabout take second exit onto B747 and continue to traffic lights where you turn right into Cragie Way. Continue to roundabout and take second exit and watch for campsite signs and a right turn to site.

Ayr Craigie Gardens is rectangular in shape and is surrounded by mature trees despite being in a semi urban environment set amongst various university buildings.

The 92 mainly spacious hardstanding pitches all accept awnings. To break up the rows of pitches colourful shrubs have been planted. There is one central toilet block, whilst its perfect clean and functional it does need an upgrade, the lighting in particular is poor and really needs to be updated to modern LED.

There are a couple of service points strategically placed around the site although they are a long way from some pitches. There is an open grill motorhome waste point in front of the toilet block. Electric points are convenient to pitches and are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors.

Some are the old twist and lock variety. There is no TV booster system which is a shame as the signal is only rated as fair and we did get some picture breakup using our roof mounted aerial. There is a small enclosed playground probably suitable for younger children.

Site wide WiFi is available which can be purchased online if you are not already a subscriber. We used our phones and found the 4G signal which was fine. There is a small information room near the entrance. Reception didn’t seem to have anything for sale which seems to be an increasing thread at Club sites.

The site is ideally situated for visiting Ayr which has a good shopping centre and a lovely sandy beach. There are also lots of opportunities to explore the coast both north and south. Ayr has a rail connection to Glasgow. Robert Burns birthplace and museum are on the outskirts of Ayr.

For food shopping there are both Morrison and Tesco supermarkets nearby and an M&S in the town centre.

 Great weekend at this site. It is quiet yet it is close to the town centre and the beach, both of which can be reached by a riverside walk.

I see that some reviewers have described Ayr town centre as a bit shabby and tired but we were pleasantly surprised at the variety and quality of the shops.

Facilities block was spotless and the staff were friendly.

 Ideally situated just 10-15 minutes easy walk into the town centre and another 5 more to the beach.

Facilities typical, clean and well kept - a little old. Showers hot and fantastic high pressure.

Pitches are a good size on gravel, lots of trees overhanging.

For us the location makes the site, Ayr has plenty to do and see, the beach is fabulous and there is a great cycle track along the coast.

The walk along the river is great for dog walking and there is a another walk out of the gates.

All in all great site and will come back again.

 A very well run park with very friendly staff.

A great site for a relaxing break, and only a pleasant fifteen minute stroll into the centre of the lovely town of Ayr, which has a great variety of shops, restaurants and Great little Pubs.

Not an expensive site, but very pleasant and very well run.

The beautiful Ayr beach is also within reasonable walking distance.

We will definitely return for another break in the future.
