A few more signs indicating where walks start in relation to the car park would be helpful. We as strangers were a little confused and even went the wrong way resulting in a stressful dog walk!

Avoid if you want a camping experience with good facilities and friendly staff. Should've known better really as it was too reasonably priced..... No camp control or security. Albeit we don't have children, however the children are everywhere with absolutely no respect for anything or anyone's property and the parents don't care at all, apart from where their next vodka...

Situated on the banks of Slieve Martin and sweeping into the village of Rostrevor, Kilbroney park can't help but produce stunning vistas where ever you look.... oh and entrance is FREE! Good touring caravan pitches and a selection of camping sites allow visitors to stay in this part of paradise. So what is there to do?.... Walks.. everything from strolls... More

Love walking in Kilbroney Park. If you feel energetic you can climb to Cloughmore Stone which by tradition was thrown their by Finn McCool. Locally known as the big stone. There is a cafe there for refreshments in the park. A nice place to go with young children to the playground. Lovely scenery which leads to the Fairy Glen, which... More

We had a great time here but similar to other reviewers found the friendliness of the staff hit and miss. Female receptionist was reasonably friendly but the male one was grumpy tp the extreme. We also enquired if we could move sites and were told no spaces were available and spent the weekend looking at 2 empty sites. To give... More

There are so many things here. Drive up to the car park at the rear of the cafe; walk over the road leading to the camp site by a bridge and enter the cafe. From that vantage point you look out over a long sweeping parkland which sweeps down the long hill. Must be great for tobogganing in the snow!... More

This really is a glorious Forest Park and one which I did not know existed until a week ago. Lots of open spaces, fantastic trees, plenty of colour, walking and mountain biking tracks. I cannot praise it highly enough and have already recommended it to lots of people. Plenty of picnic tables, great for families.

When I arrived I discovered that my father had forgotten to put the tent pegs back in the bag after airing it, I explained this at reception but there was no offer of help or even a suggestion as to where I could get pegs so I had to abandon my stay, I had the £20 deposit for the key... More
