Only one hour 10 minutes for our home,so doesn't take long to get there on a Friday night. Booked well in advance as a very busy site, our husband had Braemar open on the Saturday and Ballater open on the Sunday.Friday afternoon on arrival check in took 2 minutes ,set up caravan then round to local butcher in village for the best fresh produce money can buy.Made supper for all our friends and had a great time sitting in awning till late. Saturday morning us girls went shopping in Ballater fantastic wee clothes shop next to the Alexander Hotel we all bought something then in and out all the small gifts shops on way up high street. Stop for coffee on the Green and watch the bands setting up for afternoon Muckel Feast music festival. We return back to caravan dropped off our shopping picked up seats crisps and wine then back to the green to listen to the music that was on from 2 till 8pm magic afternoon. Meal booked at Lochnagar Indian restaurant 1st class as usual.

Sunday morning out walking round golf course along the river Dee then up to Craigendarroch for lunch, don't think this hotel is expensive there prices are very reasonable and food brilliant. Walked back down into village to meet up with husbands at golf club, that is open to none members, stayed and had a few wines with friends and then we all had supper, what a brilliant village Ballater is, with the best caravan site to stay in.

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.

Having stayed at the site a few years previously, we were keen to give support to the village after the recent floods and devastation. Great to see the site back up and running and everything refurbished and looking super. Toilet/shower block was immaculate and very well looked after. Outside dishwashing sinks could be spruced up a wee bit and maybe a little bit more cover provided? Washing dishes with the rain pelting down isn't too much fun!

Overall a fabulous week, despite the weather. Really happy to see the site looking so good 👍🏼...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.

It was a joy to watch the younger children enjoying cycling and skateboarding round the park.

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.

Everything about our stay was first class from a helpful and considerate warden to the constant hot showers. My only query, which is not confined to this park, is why there is such a high charge for campervans.

We like Ballater Campsite and have now stayed there 3 times. They have done an amazing job restoring the site after some flood damage a couple of years ago. The pitches are large, well drained and flat with ample space between them so you don't intrude on your neighbours or vice versa. The toilet, shower, washing block is easily accessed from all parts of the park and kept immaculately clean. The site is very convenient for the centre of Ballater which is a well serviced and attractive town. We particularly like the fact that this campsite is operated by the local community trust and therefore nice to know our camping fees are being invested in the local community. There is wifi at the reception block. Would get 6 stars if somehow they could extend its reach to the rest of the park...but then again, its good to have a forced break from internet access when on holiday!...Read less.

This is a great campsite for families and dogs. Situated by river on outskirts of town just 5 minutes walk to shops. A small play park and smooth Tarmac for bikes, scooters etc went down well with our children.

Owners are very helpful and welcoming, gave us lots of ideas for walks nearby. You can access a river walk straight from the campsite.

The facilities were always very clean and modern, the power of the showers could be a bit stronger but that would be my only tiny gripe.

They were cleaned at least twice a day while we were there.

It's good that there is a no noise after 10:30pm policy which the owners make sure is adhered to.

Definitely would recommend, it's in a lovely spot....Read less.

We found Ballater to be one of the nicest and friendliest campsites we have ever been to. Never experienced such a friendly and welcoming check-in with loads of information and advice. We were allocated 2 tent pitches and 1 camper hard-standing. My only slightly negative comment would be that the tent pitches were 'first come first served' with you being able to choose your pitch. This would usually be great, however in high season it gets very busy and the tents weren't spaced out to utilise the area to its best. One neighbouring tent had to move their car to give us space to pitch. Might be better if warden was there to offer a little guidance on where people should pitch and also park.

The toilets and showers were spotless - all refurbished since the floods last year and now regularly cleaned and looked after. Nice play park for kids and a wooden gazebo with picnic table, which would have been great if the weather had turned and space was needed for dining under cover.

The location is spot-on. It's on the edge of the village of Ballater, with a lovely selection of cafe's, restaurants and shops. Plenty to see and do in the area. We will definitely be back....Read less.

I took my 9 y/o son on his first camping trip to see if he would enjoy a longer trip. The service block is very impressive with clean toilets, showers and washing area for dishes. Around the site, there are barbecue stands and plenty of waste disposal and water along with hookups for caravans. The site is immaculately clean and considering the floods of 2015/16, the site looks really good.

What I think the camp may benefit from is a clubhouse with some entertainment and a bar, but I understand that this may not appeal to everyone. I also think there could also be a little more for the kids as the playground area doesn't really appeal to the older children and the site lacks any facilities for ball sports.

I never interacted with any staff, my husband and children did a few errands to the office for advice, freeze ice blocks etc and they were helpful.

The booking process was very easy and the lady on reception when booking in was really friendly and helpful. It's quite a relaxed atmosphere on the site with not too many 'no having fun' signs which some other caravan parks suffer from. Having said that the place is very well looked after and they clean that toilet block every day like the Queen is visiting! There are a lot of dogs on site so if you or your kids don't like dogs then it may be a problem but all dogs are on leads and they were all well behaved (except mine!). good flat spaces for big family tents are available and we still had room to park the car beside....Read less.

About 5 years ago, we visited Ballater and spotted the campsite. Then, it looked tired and a little run down, with static mobile homes as well as touring facilities. In spite of this, we decided to stay at Ballater on this occasion to visit the surrounding area.

What a difference !!

The campsite is now first class and has modern clean facilities with everything a tourer could wish for. Apparently, the "old" campsite had been washed away in the floods a couple of years ago, and it has had to be completely re-built.

With regard price, we thought it was a little more expensive than we were used to, but we were a) in high season (in which we are not normally) and b) they have to recuperate the "no expense spared" on revamping the campsite. We were happy with this !!

We would definitely come back to this Ballater campsite when visiting The Cairngorms, and recommend it to friends....Read less.

Went here for a weekend in mid-June 2017.

Ballater is a lovely market town set in some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland.

Site is adjacent to the River Dee and Ballater Golf Course, and about a 5-10 walk into the town itself.

Site is clean and tidy, with a very good amenities block. The site has recently been overhauled as a result of the awful flooding that hit the area around 2 years ago.

Tips:

If you're coming into the site from the East (along North Dee side road), be very selective about which road you come down to the site from - some of the smaller streets between the town and the park are really tight - and no place for a large tow-car and van!! Best is probably the road with the Deeside Inn (Victoria Road). Also, the lay out of the site can be quite tight for maneuvering a van onto its pitch. Wee picked pitch 6 - which was near (but not too near) the amenities block - but there are some large trees and the children's play park here - meaning that VERY careful reversing is required - even then, the motor-mover had to be cranked up.

Ballater is a nice small market town, has a couple of pubs, hotels, a chipper, Chinese and 2 Indian restaurants, plus a couple of other restaurants. Also, a large Co-Op for supplies.

Have a walk around the Golf Course - stunning - must play it one day!!!...Read less.

We live in Aberdeen so wanted a campsite around 1 hrs drive for an easy Friday night drive after work. I booked online, the reception was friendly and efficient. The campsite was quite busy with touring caravans and larger camper vans around the edge of the site and the inner area for tents. The facilities are excellent, showers very clean with a mop available for you to mop after yourself and cloths to wipe around the sinks which most people seemed to make use of keeping the facilities clean and tidy for all. No extra charge/deposits for keys for the shower room or anything like that.

The campsite is less then 10mins stroll to the village where there are plenty cafes/restaurants, decent size Co-op, baker/deli, butcher and we were lucky enough to be there the weekend of the farmers market.

There are plenty walks you can do from the village and longer walks accessible after a short drive. A lovely weekend and great value for money....Read less.

Went for a couple of nights just to test out the caravan after it had been unused all winter - we only live an hour and a half away. Loved this park. The wardens were not only friendly, but genuinely friendly and helpful - not put on if you know what I mean. They seemed a happy couple.

The pitches are spacious, level and we had a mixture of gravel hard standing and grass (lovely neat grass!) and you can book your preferred pitch on-line, which I did because I wanted to be able to see the play park (to keep an eye on my son) but I also wanted a site not too close to the toilet block. The play park had swings, a great climbing frame/tower/slide/climbing wall/firemans pole, roundabout and wibbly wobbly things that children sit on! It was surrounded by a hedge and entered by a gate so little ones cannot run out onto the road. There is a very nice wooden gazebo next to the play park with a wooden picnic table and chairs where you can keep an eye on your little darling in comfort!

Obviously everything is quite new because of the devastating flood. The toilets (female) were very clean and modern. There is a fold down baby changing table. The wardens make toilet checks to ensure everything is clean and proper. The showers were spacious and it is the first time I have encountered proper 'home-type' showers in a park where the water flow stays on all the time (no button to keep pressing), you can adjust the temperature and the shower head is on a riser so you can raise and lower it - great. A thoughtful touch was the long narrow worktop beneath the windows which had two mirrors. It was perfect to apply your make-up or do your hair in the morning. The narrow counter meant you could get close enough to the mirror to see what you are doing, natural light from the windows and the counter to put your stuff on.

There is Wi-Fi in the reception building along with a coffee vending machine. The site is in Ballater itself, so it is a pleasant, level walk to the main shopping, eating, pub area and a really good 'chip shop'. There was a farmers market on the Saturday when we stayed (June 2017). There are paths from the site to the river where my son caught tiny fish in his bandy net (he did put them back!). The banks of the river consist of various sizes/types of stone.

When we stayed it was busy but didn't feel crowded although my husband had to queue for his shower, I never had to - think he just timed it wrong

I recommend this site and we will go back again - probably to test the caravan next year . . .

There's even hand gel in the chemical toilet disposal area, which I've never seen before.

We went for the walking and cycling nearby which is also excellent. It's an easy cycle to Loch Muick and back again on the forest road, which is more or less downhill all the way. We also saw an osprey in nearby woodland on our first day....Read less.

Ballater has recovered very well from the January 2016 floods. The caravan site is excellent with spacious level hard standing pitches with electric. Our pitch no. 12 was near the walk along the river Dee and golf course. The walk is still under repair but passible.

Our last stay here was several years ago when the site was run by Aberdeenshire Council. At the time we were less than impressed with the site as everything was tire and in great need of care. Since being taken over by the community these problems have been attended to and the end result is a superb caravan site. The only downside was the devastation caused by the flooding of Balloter by the River Dee. This has left the static caravan section of the site looking like a bomb site. However do not let this put you off the touring site is one of the best we have visited. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and have a great knowledge of the area.

Balloter has a good selection of places to eat from cafes, restaurants and hotels. I would particularly recommend the Lochnagar Indian Restaurant on the square or if you prefer less exotic dining the Hilto at the top of the hill is good and reasonably priced. Local shops sell almost anything you could want and everyone is very welcoming.

The reason for my short stay at this campsite was to complete the circuit of the 5 White Mounth Munros which includes the famous Lochnagar. The available tent pitches were very well placed close to the washing up facilities and the shower / toilet block. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely consider this site if I am visiting this area again in the future....Read less.

For what this site as gone through in the past year,you won't believe the high spec of this site. Everything is back to normal and better,pitch, toilets,wardens all great. Your pitch number can be book on line so you no where your going that's not a problem. A lot of folk camping in middle grass, so didn't really leave kids much room for kicking a ball,but great play park on site. Friday night was good with friends, in awning till very late, this was not a problem, we no to keep the noise down, but not so good on Saturday when we were approached at 10.45pm and ask to keep the noise down😡.

Ballater village is 1st class, walk around golf course all repaired,walked up to Craigendaroch Hotel for coffee, then back down into Ballater, farmers market was busy and knitwear sale was good prices in the V&A Hall. Balmoral Bar great atmosphere nice pub grub. To have two 1st class Indian Restaurant in a small Village is amazing, we had booked in advance Lochnagar Indian and what a wonderful meal we had,this restaurant is entering Best Aberdeenshire Curry Awards, easy to see why.

Great weekend,great company,great Caravan Site, great Village....Read less.

Stayed 2 nights (Fri -Sat). Very friendly staff at reception, very competitive pricing for a tent & 2 adults.

Upgraded amenities from last visit, showers & toilets very clean. Very child friendly site with playground area and lots of kids going about on bikes etc.

Only problem was noise from other campers on both nights, after the pubs had closed - talking and laughing loudly til after 1am. My partner asked one group sitting in their caravan awning if they could continue their party inside the van as we couldn't sleep - but to no avail. Notices prominently displayed saying "strictly no noise after 10.30" but seem to be ignored. This experience would make me unwilling to return, which is a pity as the campsite is otherwise very nice - maybe staff need to police the grounds for noise level....Read less.

Great site, we picked it because of outdoor things to do in and around Ballater and loved it. The site was really nice, and we will definitely be back. The only slightly disappointing aspect was that only 3 out of the5 ladies showers were working. Two cubicles remained locked during our stay, and the water in the showers was a bit stuttery, in that it wasn't very powerful and went on and off whilst having a shower. The cubicles were a great size and liked the bench for putting clothes on etc.. Still very impressed with the site after the floods....Read less.
