Six Mile Water Caravan and Camping Park is one of the most popular holiday parks in Northern Ireland, located in the centre of Antrim with Belfast and Larne within easy reach. The location of Six Mile makes it an excellent base for exploring the whole of Northern Ireland. The park is open from February to October, as well as selected weekends during the off-season, and offers a range of serviced pitches that are open for both tents and motorhomes.
The park is situated within Lough Shore Park, which itself is on the scenic northern shores of Lough Neagh, and as such offers a striking range of views as well as a variety of activities for the whole family to enjoy. A popular destination for travellers and residents of the area throughout the year, Lough Shore Park is perhaps best known for its water-based activities, with boating, canoeing, and jet-skiing just three of the great pursuits you can enjoy.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that it is all about the water sports, though, as the wide-open spaces mean that ball games are also popular, and in the summer there is even an area dedicated to go-karts. Open spaces mean plenty of opportunities for walking and taking in the countryside, as well as picnics for those who like to indulge in a spot of outdoor eating from time to time. There is a great coffee house situated within Lough Shore park that offers snacks and drinks throughout the year.
There are two golf courses within walking distance of the park, while a drive around Lough Neagh to visit all of the towns and villages around the coast is also worth doing. Belfast is a short drive away should you be looking to explore the city, while the picturesque northern coast looking out onto the Atlantic can be reached quickly, too.
100% payment required in advance to secure booking. Group Discounts on request (only available in February, March, September, October and November and excluding Public/Bank Holiday weekends). Modern toilet and shower block. Fully equipped laundry and dishwashing facilities. TV Lounge and Games Room. Electric hook up for 37 pitches and 8 camping sites. Toilet disposal unit.

The site contains many exceptional features including an ancient motte, a spectacular and unique parterre, long canal, round pond and paths through the demesne, as well as remnants of Antrim Castle.
Built in the 1840s as a coach house and stables for Antrim Castle, the Clotworthy Arts Centre buildings were restored providing galleries, performance spaces, workshops and meeting rooms.

Clubs and trolleys are available for hire.

this is a great park lots to do and see but staff are very unhelpfull and tend to be very narkey all the time thay make you feel unconfortable other caravan users told me thay felt the same and where not made to feel welcome its a shame because its probably the nicest site up north other than that theres lots to do i hope this dosent put you off going maybe thay will learn to be nice
An excellent caravan park situated right at the edge of Lough Neagh.
If, like me, you are concious about your caravan's security then this caravan park will put you at ease. Entry to the park is only gained by using a swipe card which you get when you arrive (£10 refundable deposit for same). The park is situated near a public car park but this gets closed off at dusk to keep out any boy racers etc. offering you a peaceful nights sleep.
The facilities are excellent. Toilets very clean and there is a good games room with pool table to keep the young ones amused. Again, access to these rooms is gained by using the swipe card.
As I said, the park is situated close to Lough Neagh and you have several walks right on your doorstep. You can go for a dander through Reas Wood or head down towards Antrim Castle / Clotworthy Arts Centre. Lots of green space about and excellent for the dogs.
All in all a small, clean, friendly, secure site. There are 20 pitches though I believe the site is being expanded at the minute.
