I have been on this site for about 8 years.
I certainly don’t own a 1980 scrap as per comment below.
The site is in a wooded area of the Glen Afton hills, so entrance is wooded area with gates. The site is surrounded by beautiful scenery.
It is a quiet site with a pub that serves food.
The old buildings that are described below are old buildings that were part of a hospital in late 1800’s/ early 1900’s, so will be old. One at the entrance is the site owners house, one up the hill on left is a private owned house and the pub is one of the buildings.
The site owners have done a lot to the site and plans to do more. This is a family run site and not a large business run site.
The owners Ann and Phil go out their way to do things for you and keep not only the site fees, but any work carried out at very reasonable prices.
You can take dogs as long as they are well behaved, kept on a leash and you tidy up any mess they leave.
If you are looking for a quiet site with beautiful hill surroundings then this is the site for you

If I could rate this site 0 stars I would, prior to the Coronavirus we had a drive to this park to see what was on offer???? Static caravan wise, I was put off immediately by the scruffy appearance of the entrance to the park and the run down buildings on site, we were approached by a lady who titled her self as the owner? In my opinion this park needs serious investment and some form of management reality check would you site a 2020 caravan with old 1980 scrap!!! around you, I don’t wish to pull this park down but there is far better parks around it for a lot less ground rent, very poor park good look for it’s survival after lockdown.

Shocking place. Dirty from start to finish. Health inspectors are needed. Food disgusting and beer undrinkable. Visit at your peril. Would give no stars if poss.

If the owners/managers would have advised us the site was under construction or renovation we would have booked elsewhere "Clearly misadvertised" had to wait with other complaining guests in the rain, "no reception", for the owner to turn up, eccentric old women!, disgusting showers, terrible view from our pitch the lady put us on, all pitches are to the rear of a derelict pub that's your view on this gypsy camp, sorry but would not recommend to others and feel the weekend was a total waste of money.

Very poor quality park there is no facilities to get washed properly the electric points keep going off and we couldn't find the warden to put the power back on all in all the park is antiquated and needs cash investment, its a terrible place to visit avoid this park like the plague.

"This Caravan Park Management clearly thinks they have come up with a novel way to prevent bad reviews, however we believe this could be deemed an unfair trading practice" other customers depend upon it, Caravan Park Owners or Managers should focus on getting there service right rather than shutting down aggrieved customers.
"People should have the right to vent their disappointment if a Caravan Park stay did not meet their expectations and should not be prevented from having their say" This Caravan Park is the worst Caravan Park I have ever seen, reviews are just opinions all are valid but may differ! In my opinion the food in the pub is inedible they use the cheapest of products and charge extortionate prices!!!!!,the beer lines need attention bits in the beer, the toilet and shower facilities are inadequate one shower for male and female help! no where for children to play and the management are rude to the customers

The views from around the caravan site are fantastic as they are of the Southern Uplands.
There is so much happening "up the glen" but not intrusive. The reservoir, a couple of mile further up the glen, is getting a bit of love and affection and will soon be a bigger attraction than at present.

I see that the previous information on this park is non-existant, so I would like to enlighten the reader.
Glen Afton Park in 2009 has around 30 static caravans and mobile homes. (It also has four prime pitches available for new statics). The park has room and hook-up facilities for four touring caravans and about room for around 20 tents. The park's onsite pub the Hillside Inn is now open.
Glen Afton Park is the cheapest camping site I know of, with gound rents between £1,000.00 and £1,400.00 per year. The pub drinks are cheap and I think the gas bottles are reasonable too. Camping fees are also very inexpensive. In my opinion, Glen Afton Park is a grocely undervalued site.
