Few grumbles,

We have used this site for many years and it has grown tremendesly. Most things are very good, it is very clean everywhere. Two things that could do with some attention though, the massive conifer hedge in the middle of the site is awful and makes pitches close to it very dark. We use the top pitches which are very pricey now. When we first started going there years ago you had a great view of the Cromdales, now most of the view is obscured by this massive "hedge". Also the bank behind the top pitches is looking very overgrown. Also a bit concerned that we had e mails whilst touring Scotland prior to stopping at Grantown for the last week asking for full payment before we arrived on site and messages left on the home phone when we got home too! Apart from this it is a lovely site.

Mature Couple

Stayed here for 3 nights mid-May. Disappointed to not be given a pitch higher up at the back of the site as requested, but fortunately no children playing around the toliet block as we had feared. Some noisy neighbours. Very good site for walking directly from the site - marked trails in the woods to the south and north of the town, and a good path along a disused railway line. Easy drives to Loch Garten and Loch an Eilein - both very pretty to walk around.

Flying Stopover

We stayed in mid-May on our journey further North for one night. Site was clean, good size pitch, staff were helpful and the shower and toilets were clean. The only complaint was two sets of noisy neighbours behind us. One group talked loudly until well after mid-night whilst the others who were generally quiet thought it a good idea to drop bottles in the bottle bin at 11.30pm from what seemed a great height. We would use the site again but would perhaps request a quiet spot.

Cairngorms Gem

An excellent site in all respects. We had a fully serviced pitch which was huge. Great views of the Cairngorms and it was fun watching the weather fronts circle round as we kept cosy in our van. Free wifi and tv box a bonus as we don’t usually bother with tv whilst on our travels. Toilet block immaculate and underfloor heating a bonus in a chilly, snowy late April. Full recycling good to see Staff so helpful, supportive and friendly - there if needed but not intrusive. We stayed for 3 nights which turned out not to be enough. Lots of opportunities in the area for walking and cycling through the woods or along the river. Town, with lovely shops and well stocked coop within walking distance. Heritage centre looks worth a visit and definitely try the goodies at KJ’s bakery. We will definitely be returning.

Enjoyed our stay! 😊

Just spent a very enjoyable week here. Originally booked for five nights, but decided to stay an extra two as it is such a lovely and well managed site. From the initial enquiry, booking and check in, the wardens were pleasant and helpful.....and you are even taken to your pitch which is a nice touch! Due to Coranavirus we used our own facilities. The area has so much to offer with beautiful walks and scenery. Grantown is a pleasant town with many amenities and is only a short walk from the park. 😊 Thank you all at Grantown on Spey Caravan Park for a very enjoyable stay ....... and we hope to be back!😊

Amazing!

Probably the best site we have visited. Spotlessly clean, fabulous facilities, friendly staff and a great location. Sensible attitude to Covid safety. Toilet/shower blocks shut from 11.30 to 1pm, for cleaning, so none of the early morning rush and queuing experienced at other sites. Beautiful location with plenty of walks to choose from including through the beautiful woodland nearby. A short walk into the lovely village. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Fabulous surprise

We had originally booked the Glenmore Site but it did not reopen (shame on them) and we were fortunate enough to get the last pitch at Grantown. To be honest we weren’t expecting much, we were just glad to be away in the caravan. From start to finish our dealing with and stay on this site was absolutely brilliant. When we booked by phone, Michael was so helpful and informative and that continued with all of the staff during our stay. They simply could not do enough for us, including Michael expertly guiding me on to the pitch, which was in an awkward place to reverse into. We were a little worried about being right next to the play park, but apart from one noisy early morning (kids belonging to people packing up to leave no doubt), it was not a problem at all. The site is in a beautiful location, right next to walking and cycling trails and only a few hundred yards from the centre of Grantown. I have been to Grantown before and wasn’t impressed, but this time I found it a lovely and endearing little town. The site is spotless and really well laid out. The toilet/shower block is simply the best we’ve ever experienced in more than 20 years of caravanning, hygienically clean, constant hot water (no push button showers here) and totally enclosed individual showers and wash basins. We had a brilliant holiday and this site contributed massively towards it. We had intended to go back to Glenmore next year but have now decided to re-book at Grantown, it’s an extra 30 mins on a 7.5 hour journey, but definitely worth it. ..... oh, and the food from the take away van which visits regularly is also really excellent. Well done to one and all involved with this site!

Pitch not spacious

We booked this site as a stop off on our way to Dunnet Bay for two nights. However we were really disappointed in the site. We were placed in the yellow area and the caravans were packed on so tight that I am not sure if we wanted to put our awning up we could as there was not much space. Some parts of the site were spacious but not the bit we were in. The toilet block near us certainly didn't look great, it was old fashioned but very clean. It did not have underfloor heating like some reviews have said. The play park qas very noisy with children all day and til about 9pm. The bins were always overflowing too. The site did have positives in its location for many activities and things to do but there is a better site just outside Aviemore instead of a CCMH site. We won't be staying here again.

Simply the best

This is a fantastic all year round site, the site is perfectly maintained and the super pitches are genuinely ‘super’. Wi-fi was free and no drop out as was the TV satellite. Showers have underfloor heating which in the winter was a real treat, and extremely clean. Great location for walking and visiting the other towns in the Cairngorms.

This Park is a Winter wonderland

Grantown-on-spey caravan park gave us a great opportunity to take in 2020 over the new year period. This park is very centrally located within the highlands and a gem on the network. We received a great welcome from the wardens. Although out of the growing season it was evident a lot of upkeep and maintenance is lavished here. An excellent network of woodland walks extends from this park. The wifi is the strongest I have ever experienced on any park and allowed the kids to play their games without glitch no fiddling about with passwords. There are two shower blocks the upper one is closed in the winter months although we were advised it is undergoing renovations for 2020. The lower block was amazing with underfloor heating and spotlessly clean. All service points were modern and well maintained. The new year street party in Grantown was excellent and enjoyed by all. We enjoyed the hospitality shown to us so much we are booked again for easter.
