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.

lovely facilities - best I have experienced

We stayed for a 2 night midweek break and had a disabled pitch as we are both disabled. The toilets, showers, washing facilities etc. were immaculate and very warm. The best we have used so far (although only been a member for a year). Unfortunately, the weather was very wet and the pub/restaurant did not allow dogs in so we were unable to use as we had our 2 with us. The site was nicely laid out and well maintained and there were lots of nice walks nearby. The dog exercising area was good but unfortunately quite a way from our pitch. We would go back again when visiting the area

fantastic 9 days

we chose this site as it was central to the places we wanted to visit, what a great choice, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, when asked for advice they went above and beyond to help. the view from our pitch of the hills was amazing. the site is very close to the Wallace monument, the Falkirk wheel, the kelpies, knock hill race track, loch Lomond and many other places, the facilities on site (toilet block) were very clean, and tidy, we were near block b which had the generator, and to be honest it was not a problem it was not that loud we were due to stay for 7 nights but we extended it for another 2 nights, as it was quiet and relaxing, and very friendly. we would recommend this site for a visit and we will certainly be going back again

Superb Weekend

Stayed at this site with fiancée and dog for 4 days last week, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay from start to finish. On arrival we were greeted warmly by friendly staff, in what appeared to be a newly renovated and modern reception. The staff were very happy to share abundant local knowledge with us, a huge help. Further to this, the reception was very well stocked with all the essentials we could need during our stay. The site itself is very peaceful, with the most incredible views of the hills. Sitting with a cuppa in the morning looking out over the view from our pitch made the trip worthwhile in itself. We ate at the on site restaurant twice during our visit. A definite high point! Great locally sourced, well priced and well sized meals, and a fantastic selection of beers, even a few local brewery ales to try. The facilities in site cannot be faulted. The toilet blocks were spotless, well decorated, and the addition of local radio in the blocks made for a few shower singalongs! I noticed as well that the facilities have won numerous awards, including the ever coveted loo of year, not just once but several times. I can’t reccommned this site enough, we came home refreshed after a peaceful trip, and with the hills right there it’s fair to say our dog needs a holiday from his holiday!

JUST GREAT

Been here before but really impressed with all the changes. Shiny new reception and really friendly welcome. The reception team could not have been nicer and clearly enjoy their job. Pitches are usual CMC hardstanding with plenty of space between. You can choose your own pitch and although busy there was still plenty of choice. We secured a cracker with fantastic views to the hills. Not sure what the last reviewer was on about. Yes, there is a generator at the bottom toilets but there is also a sign saying it's temporary. Apparently, they are have been upgrading cables to give 16amps to all pitches - good stuff. Wasn't that noisy anyway. No smells to report either, just fresh country air. Immaculate grounds with wardens seemingly always busy around the site. Toilets are exceptional - check the awards on the walls. Visited Falkirk Wheel, Kelpies and Helix Park - all close by and well worth the visit. Great for Stirling too - maybe next time. Restaurant really good. Great to be able to walk there and back and enjoy a wee glass or two, or three, or four.....

Not good.

We arrived to a warm and friendly welcome in a well appointed reception. The views are good and the pitches are quite large. The main problem was the noise from the generator at the toilet block that ran constantly. It could be heard clearly from our pitch and sounded like a car engine running permanently. That coupled with the terrible smell of drains coming from the same toilet block ensured that we will never be returning to this site. The washing up facilities at the same block couldn't be tolerated due to the smell. The one shower taken (we were booked in for 3 nights but left after 1) was not good. The drains were clearly blocked and the shower quickly filled to ankle depth. All of the sinks suffered with the same problem taking a while to clear. The dog walk was in the field used for camping. We stayed away from the tents in the upper part of the field but had to go closer to them to use the dog bin which wasn't ideal. This is just a toilet area for the dogs and not a walk, unlike on other sites. Had the weather been better we would have asked to move pitches to avoid the noise and smell as there was another toilet block further away which appeared to be better. Although the thought of having to pack up and move when the site was not the most peaceful was not appealing when we could move to a far superior site used previously. If you are looking for peace and quiet I wouldn't recommend this site. If I could have ranked it zero for peace and quiet I would have. Another reviewer mentioned the lodges being installed. Work is ongoing on this site and it does appear that the owners are leaning more towards lodge sales and holidays.
