Clean, Well Maintained and Great Hub

I pitched up for 4 night to go to Loch Lomond, Aberfoyle and Callander. It was a great hub to go and see The Devils Pit, Rivers, Waterfalls, Lakes, Forests and Wildlife. So much to see and all accessible from to Drymen Village, just over a mile away. The scenery at the camp is really nice too. There is a small bird that visits pitch 23/24 everyday for a feed. If your there go and visit him/her. Looking at booking for next year.

Clean, very well laid out

Loved this campsite - Jill who organised the check in was great and provided lots of tips and advice about the local area. The place was spotless throughout with very good COVID measures in place. There was a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere in the small-sized tent area. I definitely plan to stay here again. The only downside was some of the other guests ignoring the Covid guidance.

Great site in a beautiful location

Highly recommend this site. Host was really friendly and helpful. The facilities were excellent and regularly cleaned. The setting is stunning with an easy walk into Drymen. All made for a relaxing couple of days.

Idyllic setting natural feel

Facilities were well laid out, cleaned often. We were met on arrival and Covid rules etc explained to us and personally direct to our site. Site management was very pleasant and helpful. We had plenty of room for our camper and awning with good space between campers. We were a short walk away from the lovely village of Drymen with great pubs and places to eat. We were looking for a relaxing weekend and this site hit the mark. The plus was the beautiful countryside.
★★★★★

Relaxed site, lovely setting

We found this a really relaxed site in a lovely setting, it’s not too institutional and is also a small site which we liked. We had booked a regular pitch for a 4 man tent but it turns out that we have a ‘large’ 4 man tent so they moved us up to one of the bigger pitches no problem - much more space and a better outlook so I’d recommend this for families. Kids were happy with the on site phone charging and pizza delivery options. And it’s a beautiful setting.
