Cobleland 07
Prices From £18.50 per night (Two Adults) BOOK NOW
Cobleland campsite sits on the banks of the River Forth in Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, just 13 miles from Ben Lomond. Not only is it a remarkably natural site, Cobleland is also a treasure trove of outdoor pursuits.


You'll be hard pushed to find a more beautiful setting for your camping holiday than at Cobleland campsite with its well-tended pitches and truly serene, idyllic countryside atmosphere.

Oak trees tower above the 126 pitches, whilst the River Forth flows calmly by the edge of the site. Turn your back to the river and you’ll be looking deep into Loch Ard Forest, part of the larger Queen Elizabeth Forest. Take off into the woodlands straight from the site and you'll have miles of stunning forest walks at your feet.

The picturesque nature of this site isn’t its only attraction, though. The site offers a unique position in the Trossachs National Park, close to many of the area’s most challenging attractions, beautiful views and most popular towns and cities. This makes for the impeccable combination of activity packed days and a peaceful retreat in the evening.

With its positioning in the Trossachs National park, Cobleland offers close proximity to a number of outdoor pursuits.

The magnificent Ben Lomond is just 13 miles away, with its views across Loch Lomond and the forests beyond. Its (only slightly) smaller cousins, such as Ben Venue with its two peaks and views across four lochs, are also closeby.

The less challenging Highland Boundary Fault Trail, which starts at The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre in Aberfoyle, offers fantastic views of the forest and waterfalls along its route.

Other attractions include Loch Lomond Shores, a shopping area at the end of Loch Lomond, Dumbarton Castle and outdoor activities centre, Go Country.

For a holiday that takes in the very essence of Scotland’s outdoors, visit Cobleland, book today.

Don't expect help from the wardens!!!
We have never experienced 2 more surly and bad tempered wardens on all of our years of camping anywhere. They were not interested in engaging in conversation in what the area had to offer. Knowledge of footpaths in the immediate area was none existent. When male warden was asked where the bins were he simply scowled and pointed in the general direction. There whole attitude did not leave one with the desire to return. The toilet and showers left a lot to be desired and are urgently in need of an upgrade.

Lovely site
Cobleland is our 'quick' go to Campsite (50mins from Home) - and has never let us down in all the years we have been visiting - firstly with a tent, and for the last five years with a caravan - the facilities are basic but alwasy perfectly clean - and the new couple running the site are lovely and very friendly the dog walk, is NOT just for Dogs, and leads to a lovely shingle beach, and when it's warm enough a great place to swim the Cycle path into Aberfoyle is just out of the entrance and turn left for approx 50yrs, - and it's a very easy ride into the village we will be back to the site, this year :D
Unit Type: Caravan
Peacefull Night in a well placed site
One night stay warm welcome on arrival with everything explained before we pitched up. Site well placed for exploring and with Gartmore and Aberfoyle less than 2 miles away if you wish to shop or eat out. Cycle route 7 on the doorstep and is nice to walk into Aberfoyle.Dog walking area available too. Amenities are spotlessly clean and well maintained. We will visit again and happy to recommend. Pity it closes for winter as only 60 mins from our house so great for just getting away when the notion strikes.

A great site
Cobleland is a super camping in the forest site especially for the cycling and walking trails. Site wardens were very well organised and friendly. However having been to this site a few times, we found that the facilities, especially the showers really could do with upgrading. And as ever (nothing to do with the site wardens) unfortunately there are some folk who feel that their dogs don’t need to be on a lead, especially the one that was about to relieve its self on our awning. I am sure these folk are told to keep their dogs on a lead on registering with the wardens but don’t take any notice.
Unit Type: Caravan
Great location with woodland walks and rides straight from the campsite
Really enjoyed the site and will visit again. One quibble - the grid at the motorhome service point for grey water is small so required a bit of toing and froing to get the outlet over the grid and avoid the water just being dumped onto the track. I imagine the time taken to get in the right position might lead to some queueing at busy times
