Milarrochy Bay Camping and Caravanning Club Site is a simply stunning caravan park, with a perfect location in the heart of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Our site stands on the east shores of Loch Lomond, providing stunning views and scenery throughout your stay. The park is open from late March to early November, and welcomes motorhomes, touring campervans, and tents to a range of serviced pitches. Pitches offer electric hook-ups, while we have facilities for you to wash up and do your laundry on-site. There is also park-wide internet access and a boat mooring facility for those who wish to use it for accessing Loch Lomond.

The park is pet and child friendly, with easy access to the rest of the National Park for whatever activities you are planning to pursue. The obvious place to start is on Loch Lomond itself, which offers a number of small beach-like shores itself, in addition to numerous water based activities like sailing, jet skiing, and wind surfing. If you are looking for something a little more relaxing, then simply stick to fishing or walking around the numerous nature trails that populate the area surrounding the Loch. If you wish to discover “real” beaches, then a short drive down the western coast of Scotland or across to Oban is definitely worth doing.

If you turn away from Loch Lomond and the sea, you are left with miles upon miles of exquisite greenery and woodland to explore. Those who are feeling especially energetic should take on the challenge of climbing Ben Lomond, although you might wish to find activities throughout the National Park, which include abseiling, climbing, cycling, and horse riding. Golf enthusiasts will find courses in and around the locality of the park, and for those exploring further they will find numerous other Lochs and waterways situated throughout the wider National Park, which encompasses Queen Elizabeth Forest Park.

Outside of the National Park site, you are only a short drive away from Glasgow, a city filled with opportunities for shopping, as well as being home to numerous bars and restaurants in addition to popular entertainment amenities such as the theatre and cinema. Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park can be found on the road to Stirling, and is a fun day out for all members of the family, while public transport is available to take you on adventures across rolling countryside and through hill and mountain ranges, allowing you to relax and enjoy your surrounds.

Expected us to mop shower ourselves after use which is ridiculous for the amount we paid to stay. Staff were terribly rude one older woman with blonde hair was very frosty on arrival and had a face on the whole time. Another man believed to be called Andy was particularly rude to the kids and had I known about this before we had left I would have been having words with him, this is a shame because the manager Shaun couldn't have been nicer! Facilities are dated and could do with a revamp but nice location if you're lucky enough to get a spot by the waters edge.

Stay Away!!! Some of the rudest people I have come across call themselves staff at this place- Andy and Christine! Ignorant and down right cheeky they managed to ruin our stay here. Price is more expensive than advertised on here as we were £27.15 for one night which is ridiculous for the dated and inadequate facilities. if i could give no stars I would

Great, peaceful site. We stayed in our caravan for a long weekend and went kayaking in the loch from the small slope down from the site which was fantastic. The facilities were in good condition and the pitches were nicely spread out with lovely views of the loch. Would recommend this site to anyone and would love to come back.

I have used this site for the past few years as a member of the club. This is a great site, far superior to Luss.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
It is true that a lot of club site managers can be a bit 'jobsworth' but not at this site. The club is for respectful campers and caravanners. The sort who mop the shower after using it!!(note previous reviewer..This is NORMAL and hygenic). Please let folk like the past reviewer to use other sites and keep this one pristine. You can have fun, play music, barbecue, but just be decent about it. So glad some people get turned away, camping is becoming too available to the Tesco tent and cider Brigade! Well done Mill Bay......

A young child came out of one of the toilets as the whole tap had fell off the sink luckily she was not scolded.

An industrial bin was wheeled away through the campsite by hand as they
had no tractor for moving it. You were expected to mop the showers after use by yourself as they probably didnt have the staff.

Very boring site no one was supposed to make any noise after 11pm overpriced and would not recommend this site to young people.

We stopped off here in May 2006 after having a rather eventful journey which included having to move from an unsuitable site in Glasgow but the scenery and the lovely friendly wardens at this site were just what the doctor ordered and very soon all cares and woes drifted off across the gorgeous loch.

This is a small, tranquil site, immaculately kept with top notch toilet blocks and good, well spaced pitches, some of which are right on the loch side. It only got a small shop, so stock up before you arrive though there is a little harbour village a few miles away with a little shop and a couple of pub restaurants.

It's hard to take your eyes off the view and is an incredibly soothing place to be. I would recommend this to anyone though it is right on the lochside so may not be ideal for someone with busy and curious toddler. Stock up on midgy repellent if going in the summer, they're everywhere!
