: April in 2011
First time visit but sadly only for 3 nights.
One of the best sites I have visited.
It's an open site so watching the kids is easy. They let you pick your own pitch.
We had pitch near to the play area, which was ideal. Some are a bit sloping and others fairly en-even, so I would advise blocks / wheel ramps.
It rained cats and dogs for half a day but no flooding which is a bonus as we left the awning at home.
Power and water next to pitch so fully serviced.
The site has a small shop but no pub etc...
All in all, a great site.
I will be going back...
Had a great weekend at this well kept park the staff are very helpfull and the toilet block is spotless. the pitch space is big with plenty of room for thr awning. We had the dog with us and there is plenty of walking space for them there is no shop on site but there is a wee van that visits with bread milk papers etc, all in we had a brill wekend and will go back again

This is a lovely site with good childrens play facilities, the sand play area is undercover and great for younger children, the toilet blocks are clean and well kept. The site backs onto a river which is good for fishing and dogs love it too!! There are great woodland walks across from the site, when weather permits it's a good walk into Callander, with good shops, cafe's and take away's. The electric and water/waste hookup is placed between 2 pitches giving you fully serviced pitches. We have enjoyed several weekends at the Gart and look forward to having more this year. Highly recommend it.

The Gart Caravan Park is located on the edge of the main A84 from Stirling. It is within easy walking distance of Callander town centre, where shopping and social needs are well catered for. A bus service to Callander stops close to the gate.
Access to the site is very easy, with a generous waiting area immediately off the main road. Once at reception, you are invited to choose your pitch using the red markers set into the ground to locate your caravan’s jockey-wheel. This gives you the freedom to set up as you wish, in whichever part of the site you choose. All the sanitary facilities are modern and well maintained, and the all-night lighting is among the best in the country.
All parts of this large, mainly flat and open site enjoy some lovely rural views of the surrounding hills. But at the same time, it is conveniently located on the edge of Callander town.
The surrounding mountains, lochs and glens make Gart Caravan Park an exceptional centre for walking, climbing, water sports, golf and off-road cycling. There is also free fishing available on a private stretch of the River Teith, which flows for 200 metres along the park’s boundary. Or you might just prefer to sit back, relax and enjoy the amazing scenery.
The Trossachs region is an area of outstanding natural beauty where you will find ‘Scotland in miniature’. Mountains and glens, tumbling burns and highland rivers, glassy lochs and ancient castles can all be found in abundance. Here, the Golden Eagle is still master of the sky and the great Red Stag is ‘Monarch of the Glen’. This is the landscape that inspired great poets and writers including Sir Walter Scott. It is certainly a landscape that will leave an indelible mark on your memory.21 Apr 2005
