Why stay here ...

Grantown-On-Spey Caravan Park is an excellent family holiday location set in the heart of the Highlands and within the beautiful Cairngorm National Park. The caravan park is but a short stroll away from the sedate little town of Grantown-on-Spey with its interesting variety of quaint old-world shops and restaurants.

For those who love the great outdoors, Grantown-On-Spey Caravan Park will not disappoint. Family walkers of all abilities are spoilt for choice - from gentle woodland trails and summer strolls across the fragrant moors to rugged scree scrambles of the more challenging variety. A haven for wildlife, the caravan site is in a charmed location where you're likely to see red deer roaming freely. There are several golf courses in the area, and anglers can fish for salmon or trout in the famous River Spey. For sightseeing expeditions, you will be conveniently close to the impressive Cairngorms and the skiing village of Aviemore. The world's only Malt Whisky Trail is a must where you can sample many of Scotland's finest whiskies.

Great location - tranquil & quiet - friendly staff.

Having read the previous reviews on this site we were a little concerned that it was not all that it was made out to be. Nothing could have been further from the truth. It is truly a wonderful place to stay. Our only mistake is that we didn’t stay much longer. We had 5 nights here at the end of August and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The site is well laid out, has generous fully serviced pitches. The toilets, washing and shower facilities were immaculate, with underfloor heating as well. An added bonus there was good WiFi reception and it was free!!! The staff were very friendly whenever we met them, and helpful whenever we needed them. The site is a comfortable easy walk into Grantown on Spey where there is a selection of local shops, cafes and bars together with a good Coop supermarket. A local iconic pub is the Craig Bar which is highly recommended for its welcoming atmosphere and wholesome pies. If you like fine dining and a la carte menus don’t go there - pie and chips is the only option - 8 varieties plus 3 veggie options - like it or leave it. We loved it and will return when next in the area. Great base to visit the Cairngorms, Moray Coast, Inverness & beyond. This will be a must stay place when we next come to the highlands - fantastic and highly recommended.

Site Charges.

I booked for 1 person and dog. Last minute change this became 2 adults, no dog, I was surprised to be charged an extra £2 on arrival but it is in the tariff list. I tend to use my own onboard facilities and I'm beginning to find site charges in some places such as this, which also seem to increase year on year, a bit steep, I wonder if anyone else agrees that £31 per night is too much? TV reception was unusable at my stance and no internet. Otherwise I found site attractive, clean, quiet with friendly if obviously very busy reception.

Grear for families but not peaceful!

We stayed here for 3 nights on the return leg of our recent epic journey north from the Midlands to Orkney staying at caravan club sites a long the way. This was a lovely site to stay at in an excellent location with great facilities. Very busy and lots of kids but that was perfect for us! Pitches were great as you would expect and wardens friendly. We even got personally shown to our pitch! The location really made it. A short walk into Grantown with all the facilities you'd expect. I'd recommend booking a table if you want to eat out as even at 6.30pm on a week night we struggled to get a table for 6! On site the facilities are good, could be cleaner, but was very busy when we were there. Great kids play park. Fab location for exploring the local sights.

Like this site but never again in the school holidays

This is the third time we have stayed at this site and as usual we booked a super pitch. We agree with the comments of the previous review in that the site seems to be divided into two parts. The upper levels behind reception are peaceful and quiet, the lower levels in front of reception are not due to their proximity to the childrens play area. The first two occasions we have stayed we were on the upper levels and admittedly it wasn't the middle of the school holidays, this time we were slap bang in the middle of the families. Constant noise and screaming all day and evening, children riding bikes around the roads, up and down the grassy mounds. Some were even messing around the chemical disposal point, spraying the hose everywhere. Maybe this was the only super pitch available at the time of booking (3 weeks before arrival), maybe I should have asked for the upper levels, but I would have thought a motorhome and two adults plus dog and no children would have given a clue that we would prefer not to be in the family area. We will visit again but next time I shall be specific about the location on the site that we would prefer, perhaps they should consider and adults only section. We will also try to avoid school holidays.

Good for families, not a quiet site

First visit here based on recommendations of friends. Will leave with mIxed feelings. Good - Large corner pitch fully serviced with tv package and best WiFi I’ve ever encountered. Awesome helpful and friendly wardens, facilities and grounds spotless. Room to improve - could do with road markings to improve traffic flow, recycling only at entrance despite general waste all round site. Some noise from next door building site. Bad - Site is effectively split it two. Top half quiet bottom half noisy. Bad facility planning means tenters shortcut through van pitches to toilets and kids park, adults and kids alike, despite warnings from wardens. Silver pitches suffer particularly bad. Earth mounds between areas used by kids as a park with bikes scooters etc coming down them between cars and awnings. Speed of adults and kids on bikes very dangerous. General - some families let kids run riot till 11pm and encouraged encroaching on pitches despite repeated requests and warnings from wardens, toilets awash with water from same, contrast with families who picked all traces of water balloons post battle.
