Luss Camping and Caravanning Club Site, sat in the heart of Strathclyde on the banks of Loch Lomond, offers magical surroundings and an opportunity to explore the surrounding National Park or the rest of Scotland. Luss Camping Site is child and pet friendly, allowing you to bring the whole family along and enjoy a holiday to remember; the park is open from late March to early November, and welcomes motorhomes and touring vehicles, as well as cars with tents.
Fully serviced pitches with electricity supplies are available for those travelling to Luss Camping and Caravanning Site, while facilities for washing, laundry, and chemical disposal are within easy reach of all pitches. Wi-Fi is provided across the park, while a children’s play area is in place for the times when you don’t want to go out but the kids need to let their energy out.
The village of Luss is one of the most picturesque in the whole of Scotland, and enjoys Convervation Village status, while you simply have to walk the banks of Loch Lomond with your camera and take in the numerous trails that exist through the park, whether on foot or by bicycle. There are separate cycle trails for serious cyclists who want to really hit the pedals. The surrounding area is often used for filming a range of TV series’, so you could even find yourself getting impromptu work as an extra if there’s anything happening while you’re staying here.
If you want to use Luss as your base for exploring urban Scotland, buses run from the local area to Glasgow, and if you travel down the western coast to the town of Ayr you can take a ride on the world’s last sea-going paddlesteamer, a unique experience that offers amazing photo opportunities of the Scottish coastline.
You have already discovered so much to do and we haven’t yet explored Loch Lomond itself. The big question here is where do you start. Fishing is best done in the rivers and waterways that surround the Loch, while boat based water sports can be enjoyed on the designated areas of Loch Lomond. Energetic travellers can head up to Ben Lomond, the area’s highest peak, while a range of other attractions await the whole family.
A fantastic caravan park in Strathclyde with much to do on the doorstep and within a short journey, Luss delivers fun, luxury, and a relaxing surround in one charming and awe-inspiring location.

Complete waste of money! £25.40 for one night camping is ridiculous for a start and then to only supply 2 showers between about 30 pitches worth of tents is silly. The only shop on site provided overpriced items such as water canisters and midge spray. The site is located right next to a very busy loud road and although it claims to have views of the loch these are blocked by a row of trees.If you go to loch don't camp here! The other side of the loch has far better and cheaper camp sites.

Stayed here last year and had a good holiday, the site is very well placed on the banks of the Loch but depending on what time of year you go, at dusk you are confined indoors because of the midges. The site is well laid out, clean and the staff cheerfull and friendly A good site for couples and families alike. A good dog run is provided. Would recommend.
