Why stay here ...

When you arrive at The Woods Caravan Park, the first thing you'll notice is the breathtaking 180 degree panoramic view of Ochil Hills. The best time to go is surely in the autumn, where the purple heather and golden bracken are a visual treat for the eyes. But there's more than meets the eye to this caravan park. Activities include a ranger service of guided walks as well as a nature reserve located at the nearby Gartmorn Dam Country Park. The park also provides a tranquil setting for a spot of fishing. There is an onsite Restaurant, Grill and Bar, called The Woodsman which is open 7 days a week from midday until 11 pm (advanced booking is advisable).

The Woods Caravan Park's main advantage is its location. Take time out to explore Fishcross, Alloa. It really is the perfect base, where the Lowlands end and the Highlands begin. Nearby is Dollar Glen and its National Trust woodland - a classic setting for a relaxing afternoon stroll on the easy to follow tracks. A wander up to the Castle Campbell is a must! If you fancy something livelier, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth are easily accessible. The Trossachs and Loch Lomond are also within easy reach from the caravan site.

Holiday lodges and pitches with disabled facilities also available. Contact the warden for more details.

New tenting area - electric / non electric. Cycle track nearby.

Exellent Site with plenty to do in the area

We stayed at The Woods towards the end of September and the site was very busy. An excellent site within an easy drive of many attractions such as the Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle and the Kelpies. The site is very well maintained and the facilities are spotless. Views from the lower part of the site are exceptional. The Woodsman Restaurant at the entrance to the site is well worth a visit, the menu is comprehensive and the staff very pleasant.

Good site

Nice site with good views and convenient location. main toilet block is very well looed after and always clean. However, the toilet cubicles in the Men's are very dark due to the (poor) design of the lighting. I suggest that additional lighting should be fitted above the cubicles. TV in block is an interesting idea but not really needed!

Nice views

We have used this site for good walking in the Ochills and the excellent cycle path network around Clackmannanshire. The only negative is that the toilets are requiring just a little talc. Soap trays and hooks missing in the showers, and the push button showers are a real pain.

Very busy site with great restaurant on site

We stayed at the Woods in the busy part of summer so found it way too busy for us - site was full. Luckily we managed to get a pitch at the bottom of the site near the lodges, so had beautiful views of hills, but we did not realise they had a huge camping field right behind us with no hedge and so when that got full of families, it became too noisy as we are a couple with no kids who like things reasonably quiet. We would not have booked had we know it had a large campsite for this reason as we know they are popular with large families/groups of friends. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant on site served fabulous food - really top notch stuff and staff were lovely in there too. I was surprised that everyone found the toilets immaculate though as when we were there they not good at all. I think with there being a lot of campers, the showers unfortunately were full of grass and mud as were the floors. 3 of the toilets had broken flush things, 1 broken seat and one didnt flush at all. Perhaps we were just unlucky as I think they did get cleaned regularly but in the mornings they were muddier than we are used to with there being campers on site. This site would suit families as the kids seemed to all have a ball in the play area,but too hectic for us.
