Been coming here occasionally and now it is a CAMC site, the addition of security fencing and the neatness of the site shows through. Ultra clean toilets have separate room for showers which makes sense as you don't get to share toilet smells and shower steam. The new motorhome service area at the entrance was a neat addition as well. The warden uses a silent trolley for his site jobs, rather than the usual noisy tractor, lovely.

Forfar has an ever-changing social status and a short walk from the site, usually something for everyone. For my visit, there was a lovely fragrance of 'tumbledrier bounce' as we walked the town streets, no idea where this came from and certainly not the nasal experience mentioned in the other review!

Good cycle routes nearby, a big kiddies play area, a loch as well next to the site. Some pitches have limited satellite reception with tree cover. Don't even get me started on the CAMC pitch parking nonsense, making half the pitch unavailable. Blue posted pitches are without awning giving more room for most, white posted pitches mean you park in the middle, losing half the pitch.

Enjoyed a fairly pleasant 3 night stay at this popular caravan park. Staff were friendly and helpful on arrival and we were both given a key each for the loos. We had a fully serviced pitch which was a bonus. It's a well kept site, toilets are immaculate, warm and being able to shower to the accompaniment of Ken Bruce was entertaining. Forfar is a short walk away, it's an unremarkable wee place, has a sprinkling of pubs and is very well served with the big supermarkets. Tesco, Asda, Aldi and Lidl are all there so you're not short of choice in that regard. The only real negative was the almost constant strong and pungent odour of manure which was clearly being spread on nearby fields - it stank! Nice site though, I'd return but maybe only for a couple of nights as there's not a huge amount to do in Forfar.

Just had a weekend at forfar club site. The site is a nice size, (not too big) well kept, it was very quiet even with a rally there and was virtually full, toilets were immaculate and my husband said the wardens are very friendly with a sense of humour, (not always the case we find)(I didn't get to meet them). I would have given it a 10 but the surrounding area let's it down. There is a council run park alongside the site and I think come the summer months with the light nights you could get some noise. Wouldn't stop us going back though as it is 30 minutes from home and a lovely site next to a small loch with ducks

We have now been to this site four times in the last year. It is a very well kept site and the wardens are very friendly, hard working and helpful. Showers and toilets are first class as you would expect The pitches are nice and level and in great condition. There is a small play park on site and a public play park next door, accessed via gate with access code, which also gives access to Forfar Loch. This is a 2. 5 mile walk or cycle and is child friendly. Nearby shops and supermarkets are plentiful in Forfar. There is a tyre services nearby which we had to use as we had a puncture on our caravan. There is also a car valet service nearby which does a great job and they also have a mobile service for caravans. If I could be picky, I would say that some caravan/motor home owners still do not adhere to the 5mph limit, which can be annoying when you have young children nearby. This is not confined to this site and affects other sites. Having said that, I would have no hesitation in recommending this site and we will definitely be back again.

Lovely well kept site with friendly staff. Not too big to be impersonal. Toilet/shower facilities amongst the brightest, cleanest and roomiest I've come across. The site is close to supermarkets but also directly accesses a very good country park, excellent for dog walking. (there is a large loch in the country park but with the usual British restrictive obsession of discouraging anyone from even thinking of trying to use the waters for any purpose - but I digress) I really would recommend this caravan park.

This was our first visit to the Forfar Caravan Club site - we had been looking forward to it for some time. The site is easy to find and has good access - entrance and exit is controlled by barriers.

Booking in was typical Caravan Club style - business like, go and find a pitch, come back and tell us which one and get the card for the barriers and keys for the toilet/shower/information block.

We found a pitch with a view of the loch. We were very surprised how few pitches had a view of the loch as the name states 'Forfar Lochside'. I think it must have been an Estate Agent that thought up the name! The site is not lochside at all but situated within a public park which borders the loch. There is a 5 ft. High fence round the site.

The facilities are first class as you would expect. The pitches are well spaced out and there are several fully serviced. There is a children's play area within the site and dogs can be walked in the park. The park is very popular with dog walkers not connected with the site and most are not on a lead and we saw several big snarling dogs running wild. It was too frightening to take our very small dog for a walk there and instead took him elsewhere.

As previously stated there are plenty of supermarkets in Forfar and a reasonable selection of shops in the town centre.

We would not return due to the problem with dogs in the park.
