We have a great time at the six mile park.
Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Good paths for walking or cycling and the leisure centre is close which has an excellent restaurant. Very safe and enjoyable. Can't wait to return next year.

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.

What a peaceful and relaxing stay we had on the site from the 12th - 18th May with 5 tents and motorbikes. Everyone was so friendly and all the staff so cheery and helpful we didn't want leave. We're all looking to our next visit. Top marks to the site and staff.
