Beautiful well maintained site at the foot of Knockalla mountain. Coffee shop was great and the fresh bakes scones and apple tarts are well worth it. We stayed Easter week and were lucky with the weather. It is bit of a trek to the nearest pub/restaurant however ... but perfect for a lovely relaxing caravan holiday...

Lovely site. Well organised, good playground. Restaurant/cafe has a good choice of food at reasonable prices. Shop has a good range of convenience & bakery items. Toilets/shower area/campers wash up area are clean and maintained. Staff are helpful.

On arrival we felt unwelcome and the owner told children off the playground and scared them off! The owner was watching us like hawk all night! No indoor activities from children to do during wet weather. If you are considering going there, do not stay that place and go somewhere else. The toilet rolls in bathroom kept running out.

Rude staff who stereotyped my friends and I as loud and noisy teenagers which was highly offensive to us as a group of girls. The place for tents had stones under the grass which obviously caused problems. The toilets were too far away from where we were pitched. Overall the scenery was gorgeous but would not return as the staff... More

Wonderful first camping experience at Knockalla. Great facilities and park. The toilets are warm and very clean. Easy access to water was very helpful whilst camping. The campers kitchen is very useful. Our 2 kids had a brilliant time at the park and playing with the sand. I would highly recommend a stay.

Good clean site fantastic scenery.Lot of money spent on toilet block very modern, unfortunately for us there was no Disabled facilities which spoiled our time there. So near to so many fine beaches your can choose a different one every day.

I just read the last, rather abusive, 'review' of Knockalla caravan park and feel compelled to write my first ever review on trip advisor to, in some small way, set the record straight. My wife and I bought a caravan at this site just 4 weeks ago. We have 3 girls, aged 5 and under, plus a black lab dog.... More

We stayed for 2 nights camping and had a fantastic time despite the really bad weather. The park is very well maintained and amenities where fantastic. Toilets, showers & the campers kitchen where spotless. It was so handy being able to pitch up beside the play area and know the children (age6/7)where safe and happy whilst the tent went up....

Quite simply this caravan site and it's surrounding area are Heaven on Earth. I have been going here since 1996 - for a good reason. The site is exceptionally well maintained, there are never any issues with noise or such, the location is fantastic - the beach and location are absolutely awe inspiring. What more could you ask for other... More
