Ballater Caravan Park

4.9 (755 reviews)

Catering for touring caravans, motorhomes and camping, Ballater is rated highly by the Scottish Tourist Board and offers a range of facilities onsite, with many more accessible within walking distance. Ballater town centre is just half a mile away and the golf course is even nearer! The park is an excellent base for exploring the Cairngorms National Park and this incredible part of Scotland.

The southern border of Ballater is formed by the River Dee, one of Scotland’s finest salmon rivers, and adjacent to the river lies Ballater Caravan Park.

On site, Ballater offers a well-appointed selection of hard touring stances with 16 amp electric hook-up. Fully serviced hard touring stances are also available, which come with 16 amp electric hook-up, water hook-up, and grey water waste facilities.

A quality toilet and shower block provides ample showers with free hot water and toilets fitted with water saving devices. As well as a dishwashing facility, a laundrette with washing and drying facilities adds further convenience for guests on site. Free complimentary WiFi is provided across the park.

The park has a designated baby changing facility and a well-maintained children’s outdoor play area. A selection of outdoor exercise equipment has also been set up which can be exclusively utilised at any time by adults staying on park.

In a conscious effort to respect and maintain the environment, solar panels have been installed to heat water onsite and recycling facilities have been distributed throughout the park for guests to avail of.

Near Ballater lies the Royal Castle of Balmoral, holiday home for the Royal Family. The charming railway station in the centre of Ballater, which was much used by visitors to Balmoral (especially Queen Victoria) is now a visitor and Tourist Information centre.

Ballater is not only located at the heart of one of the finest areas in Scotland but it is also a charming and busy little town. It has a surprisingly wide range of shops and good places to eat or drink just 5 minutes from the caravan park. Many of the shops display Royal Warrants – what better proof is there of good quality!

On the sporting front, there is a fine 18-hole golf course, bowling green and tennis courts and even (for cold weather) a curling rink. For those who like a stroll there are several beautiful and interesting – and easy – walks, including the ever-popular ‘Seven-bridges’ walk. The hills present greater challenges and nearby Loch Muick not only offers a delightful circular walk but also access to Lochnagar, one of the most popular of ‘Munros’.

Cycling of all sorts is available here with the local hills ideal for a spot of mountain biking while the conversion of the old railway into the Deeside Way enables a gentle flat ride right through to Aberdeen – 40 miles away. The Dee river is justly considered one of the great salmon rivers in Scotland while a host of local lochs offer the chance for trout fishing.

1st class

Deans, Margaret - 18/05/2024

1st class site that l'd like to return to but as l was solo l thought it was maybe a wee bit pricey £60 for 2 nights but l knew the price but still booked but l'd be reluctant to do it again althou the site is lovely &the host was very friendly and gave all the relevant info, shower, toilets etc are immaculate as are the recycling area, waste disposal etc, it's the wee extras like a cloth to dry the wash hand basin with, the end of the water hose held in a holder rather than just hanging that makes a difference, it's plain to see that they're has been a lot of thought put into this site and it's well cared for, great walks straight from the site and only 5 mins walk into the town, & l'd say well done and good luck for many years to come

Not much better campsites than this

Broadbent, Barry - 17/05/2024

5

A superb well run campsite in an excellent location, riverside, shops and town within walking distance, local attractions etc.Very well kept and maintained, much attention to detail to campsite requirements. very friendly and helpful staff running the site.There was ample room between pitches as well.The only minor criticism would be that the toilet/shower doors, both male and female do bang shut when people going in and out, and when you are situated opposite or near a door you can get woken up at 5.30 am.Overall it's a superb site, not much better than this one, thank you for a lovely six days.

Well organised, peaceful and maintained site. Very well appointed and clean toilet and washing facilities.Pitches well distanced and accessible.Walks to die for all around. We managed the seven bridges walk and a walk from Inver to the Queen Mother's favourite picnic spot.The flora and fauna in the surrounding area is superb.With a new best fish restaurant in the UK off the Square our weekend was perfect. We'll be back.

May 2024 motorhome. Beautiful location by the River Dee. Just 10 minute walk to a good selection of shops, cafes, takeaways and pubs. Excellent for walks and dog friendly. The sites facilities are immaculate and staff very friendly and helpful. This is by far the best site we have stayed at in over 30 years of camping.
