Why stay here ...

Nestled on the edge of picturesque parkland, Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite 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.

Excellent stopover

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
We received a very warm and informative welcome. The facilities were very clean and bright. There was some noise from the motorway but it did not disturb us. Good dog walking directly from the site. Am excellent stopover.

Great site for stopover

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
This is a very well designed site. The proximity to Glasgow and Strathclyde Country park are plus points. The site is well managed, clean and pitches are generous. The motorhome facilities are easy to use. Depending on the wind there can be noise from the motorway but this did not bother us. We had pitch number 1 and I was surprised by the number of members cutting through this pitch to the toilet block (it’s not a big walk round on the path) or even cutting through with dogs to the dog walk (also therefore walking across the tent field). Perhaps roping off the gap between the hedge and the toilet block would solve this issue, but it’s a shame it is needed.

Good site and convenient but…

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
Been here quite a few times before but this time there have been a couple of things which just don’t sit right. Firstly, we were presented with a barrier card on arrival and told there was no need to tell the staff where we were. This does mean that someone who has booked a standard pitch could easily stay on a serviced pitch at no extra cost and would not be caught out unless all the service pitches were booked up and the last arrival had no where to go. Shades of musical chairs? Also it does mean that if a member needs to be urgently contacted the site staff don’t have the first idea where they are and will have to race round the site to find them. Let’s hope that if this does happen they have given the correct number plate for their car or Motorhome or the staff will need a crystal ball. Secondly we can see at least 3 or 4 caravans with no wastemaster out meaning any waste water leaving the van is going straight onto the pitch. We have also seen one of the occupants of these vans just tossing her washing up bowl of water onto the pitch. What we have not seen is the manager addressing this issue with the caravanners concerned. This is a disappointing turn of events as we had always assumed all site managers had worked for the club long enough to know what is and is not appropriate.

Good stopover

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
A very good stopover on the way up and down Scotland. We did both. Nice walk to lake and ideal to visit the area. Next to the motorway but couldn't hear it. Nicely spaced out pitches. Showers good and toilets and laundry facilities. Very busy site, open surrounded by trees. Could have filled the hand gel dispensers more as some were empty. Will definitely stay again.

Useful stopover and for visiting Glasgow - even on bikes!

Strathclyde Country Park Club Campsite
This was our second visit to this site, this time as part of a road/cycling trip on our way over to the west coast. Agree with other reviews about the superb facilities and super friendly staff, and I'd also mention the great size of the pitches and how well laid out the site is. It's true though, that there is constant traffic noise as you are right next to a very busy motorway interchange. We ventured over that interchange on our bikes at the beginning of a cycle ride into Glasgow - the cycle route takes you over two bridges where you can smugly glide over the snarled up traffic below, before wending your way along cycle routes 74 and 75 into Glasgow, much of the way along the banks of the Clyde and none of the time on busy roads.
