Web Reviews of Ballater Caravan Park

From the start of the 2012 season Ballater Caravan Park has been operated by the local community on lease from the former operators, Aberdeenshire Council. In time we will build up our own system of reviews but the websites below carry independent reviews;

The following is a review by camperkate dated August 2012 copied from the latter site:

Just come back from a great weekend at Ballater campsite, we had never stayed at this site before when it was council run, so cannot comment on previous reviews. It's now run by the community, we booked really late for the weekend that the braemar gathering was on -so the site was actually fully booked, however the manager thought there was a possible cancellation and they would contact us. Half an hour later he called back confirming.

The site is really well located in Ballater very close to pubs, Restaurants and great biking and walking. Although the site was full the toilets were spotless and very well maintained -all the facilities were well maintained, pitches were spacious, hard standing for caravans and motor homes and a well maintained grass area for tents.

The prices were in line with similar sites £22 for 2 adults and Campervan, the location is excellent, there doesn't seem to be a play area -but there is plenty of space for play is a very pleasant little town -we hadn't time to shop for food -but there is plenty of local shops including a co-op and a great bakers.

The deli up near the square does great picnic meal deals, there is a Chinese, an Indian take away and for a real treat. -try eating at the italian -la mangetoia -booking required as always popular with locals.

Loads to do biking is very good and there are 2 bike hire shops -the off road trail to dinnet is very family friendly and serious trail bikers are spoilt for choice trips include national trust have crathes castle worth a visit -we will be back and stay longer next time
