Moffat Camping and Caravanning Club Site

Moffat Camping and Caravanning Club Siteis situated on the banks of the River Annan in the heart of the picturesque Scottish county of Dumfries and Galloway. The park is open throughout the year so tourists can come and stay with us and explore this magical landscape at their leisure; we welcome motorhomes, tents, and touring campers onto our site, which also welcomes the family pets.
On site we provide a range of conveniences to ensure you have a comfortable stay, with electric hook-ups and Wi-Fi internet available across the park and facilities for washing up, laundry, and chemical waste disposal available, too.

As you might expect in Scotland, there are plenty of opportunities for enjoying outdoor activities, with fishing in the river, walks along the riverbank, and golf at the nearby Moffat Golf Club among the most popular things to do while staying at our park. You can walk into the town of Moffat easily from our site, and check out a place that was home to many legends of Scottish history, including Robert the Bruce and William Wallace. The town is famous for its bright floral displays and range of specialist local shops that sell as much fun and quirky stuff as you could ever hope to discover.

During the summer months, the local pub has regular evenings of live entertainment on offer, including Scottish music and dancing. The town is also host to several events throughout the year that offer fun and enjoyment for the whole family. For those that love the outdoors but don’t want to take on the raw and rough terrain that can easily be found around Moffat, the Dawyck Botanic Garden is a great place to spend a day looking around and taking in a number of plant species.

There are a large number of walking trails available around the park. You can choose a gentle stroll along the River Annan past the local fishing spots, head into woodland, or opt for something more challenging that is offered by the rolling countryside and gentle hills in this part of the country. A short drive to the south will take you to the Dumfries and Galloway coastline as well as to the Scottish Borders region. The famous town of Gretna has a huge outlet shopping centre where you can buy leading brands and ridiculously competitive discounts, ensuring you leave your holiday with far more luggage than you arrived with!

We needed a couple of days away for hectic Glasgow during the commonwealth games and this fitted the bill perfect From the moment we arrived the wardens were great ! All the site is immaculate and well kept and the inevitable inspection of showers and toilets didn't disappoint The two dog walks here were perfect too The site is perfectly situated for a wee stroll to the lovely town itself (I am disabled and found it good) We will definitely be returning as it's only just under an hour for us

We stayed 1 night and was so impressed at the cleanliness & frinedliness of the staff we're returning today for 3 more nights. We arrived at 7pm but were welcomed. The shower block has several showers, toilets & even individual enclosures for washbasins. The site is well laid out. It is a short walk to the town which has a warm, charming character. We have no reservations in recommending this well kept site! Bill Anderson

First trip in our van we decided to do an stay as a trial run. Glad we chose this site, staff were very helpful and friendly, our hook up cable was short but not a problem we were able to borrow one. Toilets and showers were very clean, nice quiet site considering the number of caravans. The site is situated within a lovely town with some really nice little shops The only downside for us was the price, 24 pounds for 1 night seems a little steep.

We have visisted this site numerous times over the past 7 years. Our 2 sons were just toddlers when we first used this site and they loved the freedom and space around. Now 7 years on they still love staying here - they love to walk to see the sheep and donkey in the nearby field which runs alongside the pathway to the garden centre - which has a lovely coffee shop by the way! The site is spotlessly clean, well maintained and very peaceful with hills all around. There is a well stocked Co-op just a short walk away, and the town centre, with it's interesting mix of shops, is a short walk in the other direction. The fact we've gone back to the site again and again says it all.

Clean site quite large being 180 units. Bit noisy in the summertime although not to extremes. Clean toilets and showers, all facilities available to all. Will be visiting again in the year maybe late November or early 2009 very good to find an all year round site nearby, very good overall great for walking and plenty to see and do.
