We had a fabulous weekend stay at the Ballater camping park. Staff were very helpful and friendly, the facililties were excellent (very clean toilets and showers, no additional payment for showers which is a bonus). Plenty of hot water in the showers, mop and cloths provided so that campers can clean up after themselves as well. The site location is idyllic, being next to the River Dee with safe bathing and playing for children, plus additional open space just next to the campsite for playing. Ideally situated a short stroll from town with easy access to supermarket, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Highly recommended!...Read less.

I have stayed at many campsites in the UK. Ballater is 50 miles from my home and although I’ve visited Ballater many times and known about the campsite for years, never really thought about staying there.

Our weekend was awesome! Amazing weather, site in the heart of the village made walking to local amenities easy with longer walks in the area when we wanted to stretch our legs a bit more and take in more of the gorgeous surroundings.

The campsite itself is one of my favourites! Fantastic facilities, very clean toilet, shower block. Lovely pitches near the river and friendly “neighbours”.

All in all it was such a perfect weekend, we will be back. It’s perfect for a weekend away from it all and practically on our doorstep....Read less.

We have been visiting the site with our caravan for some years and are happy to say that the present 2018 site is the best that we have experienced.

Of course, some of the recent site development is as a result of the dreadful flood of 2016, this at least is one good thing to come out of adversity.

One of the best improvements is the more generous pitch sizes, a big benefit, the work on the toilet block and laundry is also very good.

The location of the site right by the River Dee is outstanding and accessibility to the local Ballater facilities is very convenient,

All that is needed now are serviced pitches please!!...Read less.

I was very satisfied with the park. It was neat, tidy and well appointed. A very short walk into the centre of Ballater and to the golf club where I played. Lovely walks which can be started at the site. A good selection of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

I was camping at the park for two nights. On the first night in the early hours of the morning the couple next to my tent had a loud extremely foul languaged argument. The following morning I reported the incident to staff who were already aware of the incident having been reported by others. I was advised straight away that the couple were being ejected from the site. This was a very positive immediate outcome to the issue and I thank staff for dealing with this matter in a positive and robust manner.

Sadly I have experienced similar incident over many years as a regular camper, including drunk drivers tearing about the site in cars!

Over all, excellent site to visit. I did help that the sun was splitting the sky 👍🏻...Read less.

We have returned several years to paddle the Dee from Crathie to Banchory. The campsite gives bank access, has really good showers and toilet facilities and friendly staff. We can book as a group and have always found the site really tries to make it work for us in reserving a space for the group which also allows them room for their other users. I like the 10.30 quiet rule and the fact that it seems to be enforced.

Ballater was an excellent site, everything very neat and new after the flooding a few years ago. Would definitely go back. Unfortunately a lot of rain fell in a short period when we were there, so our awning and everything in it ended up in 2 inches of water! It did drain away quickly once the heavy rain stopped though and I think our pitch (8) was the only one that suffered, 7 and 9 were also effected but had motorhomes on them so didn’t cause them any problems. It was an unusual amount of water that fell in a short period of time, so we were probably just unlucky. Will definitely revisit, lessoned learned on our part, don’t leave stuff on the ground in the awning when going out if rain is expected. :)...Read less.

First time camping with the kids so a little unsure of what to expect. Greeted by very friendly staff who directed us to a great flat site to choose our tent pitch. This was beside a great wee play park which the kids disappeared off to as soon as they were out of the car- we could watch them but put the tent up in peace!! Facilities first class very clean and great to have picnic tables with benches dotted around the tent pitches. For being full it was very quiet. Kids (5 and 2)could easily walk into Ballater to cracking ice cream shop, Shorty's, and walk home again. Some lovely longer walks from site and Cairngorm's all within short driving distances of site. Balmoral castle just a few minutes drive up river. Will definitely be planning to stay here again for a longer holiday with the kids soon....Read less.

There are signs saying "Silence after 10:30" - but there is no one around to enforce this. One group was partying until gone midnight. When I pointed out that most everyone else was trying to get to sleep (and would need to be up early for the race) - faces were pulled, but party continued. The couple who put their tent within two metres of mine continue with loud conversation until 01:00 when I asked them to "please can you stop your conversation". This resulted in the male drunkenly shouting for me to come out of my tent and face him. Seeing no other option, as he was getting more irate and louder, this I did and at this point his female partner grabbed him round the waist and dragged him struggling and shouting into their tent "leave it, leave it, come to bed". In the morning other campers - who were also disturbed by the noise suggested that this was typical of Scotland and that perhaps I should not have tried asking folks to keep the noise down in the light of the quantity of alcohol that had been consumed.

The office was not open when I left so I could not mention this to the camp staff and I was moving on, Perhaps the warden should make a 10:30/11:00pm walk around the site - or have not-quiet and quiet sections (to which I could have relocated)

Otherwise - a brilliant camp-site - but I won't be back. If you are up for a Merlot fuelled revel on Friday night - then perhaps this IS the place for you....Read less.

Ballater caravan park is without doubt one of the best sites around. Completely redone after the devisating floods the pitches are a generous distance from your neighbor and it’s a nice quite place to relax. The facilities are 5 star xsd spotless.

From the warm welcome and helpful advice on arrival to the spotless toilets and showers, Ballater is a five star site. The site was very busy and the cold weather meant the use of lots of heaters which created a short power cut one night which was quickly resolved by staff.

This site has been rebuilt and restructured since we were here 3 years ago.

2 years ago,following a devastating flood, I'm sure I was not alone in wondering whether this site could survive intact again. But survive it has and is now managed by Ballater Community Enterprise. So much work must have gone into its resurrection.

The wardens building is beautiful - walls lined with information leaflets, easy chairs and a hot drinks machine.

The (at present) 40 pitches are well laid out and pretty flat. Another 10 are to be added soon. The facilities block is second to none with plenty of toilets, sinks and superb showers. Well lit and warm too.

On one of our 3 nights there at the end of October, we heard raucous voices and some shouting, mid-evening. This always makes my heart sink as you never know how long or bad it might get if revellers are in party mode. Actually, it didn't last long, but as we made our way to the shower block, we were stopped by a gentleman who asked if we had heard any disturbances, as someone had phoned the warden's no.(as campers are asked to do immediately. They say 'Tomorrow is too late!') So this was a chap doing his stint as emergency warden, part of that Community Enterprise, turning up from his home straight away, to sort out any potential problem. It made me feel incredibly safe to know that such rapid attention is paid to the comfort and safety of its campers. If only all sites would care this much about their customers. Well done Ballater Community Enterprise!

I am delighted to recommend this wonderful site to everyone.

We are local to the area and decide to stay in Ballater for the final night of a weeks touring. We knew of the park and visited the town often but never overnight, so we decided to book and go for some dinner and a few beers.

Ballater is a beautiful village and the park is no exception, it was well maintained and super clean and if you were told of the devastion caused by Storm Frank in 2015, you would have a hard time believing as the park is pin clean and well laid out.

If I was forced for a foible it would be the streets through the village are a tad narrow, with parked cars etc, but no real challenge, it then opens out to the park entrance.

A great little place and if you are touring the highlands a great jumping off point....Read less.

Thank you for a great stay. The campsite was immaculate. I have never stayed anywhere where there was a heated toilet block, which was an excellent facility that was kept unbelievably clean. Great standards were maintained by the staff by engaging well with campers on an individual basis to do their bit. Laundry facilities were superb and just what the camper needs. Quick washing machines (with detergent automatically dispensed) and dryers . Albeit the laundry was a bit busy with other users from the orienteering event campsite, although this was a small issue. The freezer was a nice touch enabling us to keep milk cool in our cool box. The staff positively managed competing interests of visitors very well, without resorting to "do's and don't" notices. Finally staff were very accommodating and allowed me to use the office meeting room for a board meeting that I could not avoid. Thanks to Dave and everyone at the site for making our stay so good.

The site was well laid out and had a geat location by the river and only a short walk into town for the local facilities. The toilet block was kept immaculate and, unlike most sites, did not close at any time for cleaning. The staff were also very friendly and welcoming....Read less.

I was in Ballater for the Scottish 6 day orienteering and really enjoyed my stay. With the exception of the taps in the toilet block which do not always turn off thus wasting hot water the facilities were very good. It was a joy to watch the younger children enjoying cycling and skateboarding round the park.

We were pleasantly surprised to get a defined tent pitch with electric hook-up - unusual in UK but what we find is common on the continent. This is an excellent site.

Stayed 8 nights while competing in local orienteering event. Nice position by river dee on edge of ballater which is a lovely village with everything you could need for an enjoyable holiday. Weather was mixed, and without the clean and practical site facilities and the convenient and welcoming village we would have struggled to keep clean,functioning and happy. (we had flown so were short of those extra camping comforts). Very welcoming staff, and a good supply of local information. We particularly enjoyed our evening walks, taken from a site leaflet, and had a great walk up lochnagar on our orienteering day off, recommended and route notes photocopied by reception staff. Definitely a site to return to....Read less.

We choose Ballater Caravan Park for a week's stay, and were very pleased with the high standard of the pitch, friendly welcome and lovely riverside location. Highly recommended.
