Forfar Second Visit 2023

Forfar Lochside Club Campsite
Second visit this year to fabulous site . Lovely location. Easy walking distance to town and couple of minutes walk to supermarket. Very very well maintained site. Wardens do a fantastic job here. They are very pleasant , helpful and friendly and we're delighted they will be remaining in Forfar in 2024. . There is a lovely circular walk around a pond accessed from a gate on site. It's 2½ miles and is flat ideal for people less mobile. You can watch rugby or cricket en route if games are on. All in all a great place to be and we may return before Winter shutdown.

Fabulous site

Forfar Lochside Club Campsite
We stayed on a tent pitch. Drainage was excellent and the pitches are close to the toilets. The site is immaculate and well maintained. Wardens on site were very friendly and helpful. Location of the site is great for dog walking as it is right on the Forfar Loch park, also easy walk into the town for eating out buying groceries etc. Had lunch at the Little Green cafe prices were excellent as was the food and service. Will definately visit this site again when we have our new van.

peaceful site with good sized pitches and great facilities

Forfar Lochside Club Campsite
This was may 3rd or 4th visit to the site as I have an elderly relative nearby. I really like the layout and the pitch size, plus the proximity to Forfar town and I'm sure I'll be back. Just 3 slight niggles (but not nearly enough to stop me returning!) Please install some sort of paved path to the loo block across the grass! I'm sure this has been raised by others and I know I have mentioned it before. It's not great having to walk across the wet grass when the rest of the site is so well thought out. Probably a few too many notices now...all over the walls of the loo block and the dishwashing area; about recycling, pitch spacing, energy efficiency etc etc. Yes these are all very important issues and you should draw campers attention to them; but not on every available free space because they then become invisible, like wallpaper (literally) And lastly, maybe he was having a bad day but i did find the male warden pretty brusque and unsmiling, whilst the lady was really nice and friendly and welcoming.

Third visit , and will return, Love the care and attention to the flowers and herbs. Very pleasant surroundings, enhanced by the care of the wardens. Could not fault this site, don't forget to hunt out the keys to access the Castle hill, in the centre of town, also worth visiting the Restenneth priory just out of town

Great site and ideal for families

Forfar Lochside Club Campsite
stayed for 2 nights, first time with our 3 year old grandson. Loved it, campsite staff are so friendly and the facilities are immaculate. Great park on site and visited the Monikle Country Park for the day, great adventure playground. Then visited Longparke farm shop and cafe, lovely lunch and another children's play park which was great. Highly recommend this site.
