Beautiful setting right on the loch, boats and canoes can be hired so great day out even if not staying on the site. Small shop selling essentials if camping on the site. Great walks in surround area, especially if you cross the road from the site and head up the hill, to a Red Kite viewing area with a picnic... More

Stayed here with a bunch of friends for three nights in a tent. Lovely spacious and clean site. Small shop for incidentals, washing up facilities and two toilet/shower blocks. We were told where to pitch our tents and thought this a great idea as stops "overcrowding ". The loch is lovely and there are a few walks nearby. Bars /... More

Just got back from Loch Ken Holiday Park, after a last minute camping trip, with my husband, 11 year old daughter and our two little dogs. The views over the Loch were amazing.

After getting off to the worst star and asked to move our tent the week was a success. It was embarrassing in that the warden clearly told us where to pitch but our neighbours complained and the owner 'asked us nicely' to move. However after this we just enjoyed the week, the kayaks and canoes were both splendid and the... More

We love it here. We chose to come here to start our honeymoon off. Nice friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you. Great facilities particularly the free really good showers. Ideal location for a nice quiet holiday. Highly recommend the forest drives and the red kite trail too. Thanks you again for another great stay

Just back from another fantastic holiday at Loch Ken Holiday Park. We have taken our tourer here for the past 5 years and will be back again in 2017. Pitches are hard standing and level with good drainage. The facilities are clean and sufficient for the park size, even on the busy camping field there were no queues. The owner... More

I love the big open camping field that overlooks the Loch. Pitch your tent pretty much where you like. Very friendly campsite. Toilets and showers warm and clean. Lots for kids to do and safe for them to 'run wild'
