We camped here for one night, and it was very pleasant (despite the horrific weather through the night!). The only criticism is that the men's toilets at the too of the camping field were in a truly horrible state - perhaps a little more care and attention vis-a-vis the cleaning schedule?

Thoroughly enjoyed another visit to this smasher of a campsite. Great facilities, warm and helpful staff in a fabulous location. All helped with the most glorious weather, giving staggering views up to the hills and across Loch Ken. We love this place - see you soon!

Just back from a short family break. We arrived to a very warm welcome and were guided straight to our pitch. Amazing views of the lake and perfect for the kids play area. We took advantage of the very reasonable canoe and rowing boat hire. The kids loved the playpark and the rope swing. If I could I'd give this... More

I contacted Loch Ken holiday park this morning to check availability for camping this weekend, I mentioned to the man we had two very well behaved French Bulldogs. His response automatically put me off as he stated if they were not they would be off!! This came across as passive aggressive. I don't have to justify myself to anyone on... More

Just home from a fantastic 2 nights camping at Loch Ken. Excellent site with loads of space to pitch your tent and have space around you. Our three kids had a great time with plenty of things to keep them occupied. The site is very well looked after and all staff very helpful and friendly. The new coffee van is... More

This is a fantastic place and a first class camp site. Fires are allowed, one of the reasons I considered it in the first place. Camping area is massive with great facilities for the kids including football pitch, climbing areas, mini assault course and many more. Toilets are very clean, also a dish washing area there. There is a great... More

We stayed here from the 6th - 9th of April. This was our first time at the Park, but it won't be our last! The caravan was very clean, fully equipped and had a lovely view. There was plenty for the children to do and the park is very dog-friendly. The location is beautiful and ideal for visiting a number... More

Really wasn't sure what to expect. We've driven past a few times, and didn't get the scope of the park or the views. A brilliant time with the kids (who loved it) and (dog who loved it). Already talking about coming back in the summer. Loads to do, stunning scenery, and a great base to explore the area. Went too... More

Fantastic location and staff really helpful. Lots of facilities to keep the kids entertained. Water sport facilities are great but not for us in march (too cold). Toilet block kept spotless and the little shop for the tin of beans left at home. I am told the shop likes to stock fresh food in summer.
