Why stay here ...

Nestled on the edge of picturesque parkland, Strathclyde Country Park Club Site is the perfect holiday location for the entire family. On-site facilities include a woodland walk, play area for young children, as well as modern family washrooms and disabled facilities. There are also a handful of pitches suitable for larger outfits, which can be arranged through the site staff.

The country park is a pleasant ten minute walk from the site, with 1,000 acres of mature woodlands, wetlands, wildlife refuges and neat open parkland, set around Strathclyde Loch, offering unique bird and nature watching, miles of walking and cycle routes, as well as a whole range of watersports and golf. There are also several sites of historic interest within the parkland, such as the Bothwellhaugh Roman fort and bath house, and the nearby M and D's Theme Park is a great day out for kids. The shops and museums of Glasgow are within easy reach of the site and, further afield, Loch Lomond, Stirling and Edinburgh are within an hours drive, making this site an ideal base for exploring Southern Scotland.

Handy overnight stop

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
We use this site as a stopover on way south to England . Always very clean . Depending on where pitched you can experience traffic noise from the motorway. Lots of walks nearby and restaurant within walking distance for breakfast or dinner.

Okay, but not sure if I like it.

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
Clean, modern, 9m square level hardstandings, friendly welcome. It's a good location for me personal visiting family and having the park nearby is also handy for the dog walks and grandchildren to visit (outside of Covid restrictions). In just wasn't a comfortable site for me. Many of the people staying there are either single nighters moving on to the highlands or heading south back home or families there for the park facilities, and bring a different approach to the sites use compared to more normal site experiences in my opinion i.e. spreading themselves out with bikes, canoes, hammocks, large screen TV's playing in the awning and various ball games.

Over crowded, very rough location

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
If you like a site where they have simply tried to cram as many caravans as they possibly can to the point where your position on pitch is paramount for fire regulations, where every window on your caravan overlooks several other caravans this is the site for you. The reviews state the site is clean, well, with the income they generate from the amount of pitches they’ve crammed in I should hope so. The site is right next to the motorway so constant noise, there seemed to always be a caravan or car alarm going off and everyone had a small yappy dog. It seemed to attract a particular type of clientele who were more concerned by what everyone else on the site was doing than simply enjoying their “holiday” This is by far our least favourite site of all the sites we have stayed on.

Clean and pristine site

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
Stayed here this weekend for 2 nights. Really straightforward to find just off motorway. There is a little road noise but not excessive and couldn’t hear it when inside the van to sleep. Lovely clean facilities on site. Loads of options for walks from the site into the country park. Either the 4ml loop round the loch or through the woodland areas. Toby Carvery within a 5min walk from the site gives options for breakfast lunch and dinner. Great site for a last minute break.

Very well kept, but suffers from road noise

Strathclyde Country Park Caravan Club Site
The site was easy to find and immaculately kept with spotless facilities. Easy walking distance to the Country Park. Unfortunately the sound of the nearby motorway was all too obvious. It's a useful stopping off place, but not really for a holiday.
