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.

Lovely place
Place was good, toilets and showers clean. Nice owners,they keep everything clean. Small play area. I'd like to see the showers inside the sanitary block.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Helpful staff.
Our stay was only slightly spoiled by frequent torrential rain and concern about the river rising. Andy and the team went out of their way to help us site the caravan and suggested we had the key to the disabled toilet and shower since they noticed our knees were playing up. We've been to the site before (last year and about twenty years ago) and love the setting and the immediate area. The sun came out one of our days to allow us a pleasant trip on the steam ship Sir Walter Scott on Loch Katrine.
Unit Type: Caravan
Excellent Site and Very Welcoming Staff
We stayed as one family (2 adults 2 Children) in a camper-van and one family (2 adults 1 child) in a tent. We were able to pitch next to each other. The site itself is wonderful, great views, great walks nearby and the facilities are perfect. Clean, enough toilets and showers and everything you need for a camp. The site has a mix of families and older/younger couples but is quiet and peaceful. The staff were so helpful and could not have been nicer to us and the children, taking interests in what we were doing and making suggestions. There is a lovely glade with access to the river and were able to take inflatable kayaks and paddle about safely. Great walks in the forest and to Aberfoyle. On our last day the children all found a dead Slow Worm and the staff again were really accommodating and let the children all write about it and show it off. Will definitely return many times,
Unit Type: Camper Van
Friendly site with clean facilities
This is a really picturesque, friendly site located next to the River Forth. Facilities are good - the toilet block and pot wash area were always spotless. There are individual shower rooms with pretty good hot showers but there are only about 6 so there can be a queue when it is busy. It is predominantly a family site with lots of children buzzing around the place at the weekend and in holidays. The site doesn’t sell any food and drink supplies so you need to make sure you have everything you need. There is a pretty cycle path which takes you straight into Aberfoyle on foot or by bike avoiding the main road. In the village there are a couple of pubs which do food, cafes, Co-op and some tourist shops - also the local butcher does great breakfast rolls!
Unit Type: Tent
Perfect site
Spent a fantastic 4 nights at Cobleland as part of our summer holidays. The site is seriously immaculate, the staff are beyond helpful and friendly and do an amazing job of keeping the park tidy. Toilets and showers are spotless, as are waste areas and recycling. The site is a couple of miles from Aberfoyle and a perfect base for walking or climbing in the area. Would recommend for absolutely anyone with any form of unit
Unit Type: Tent
Great stay
Grandparents & two grandchildren enjoyed weekend stay with three hour extension we could activate on Sunday morning. Fairly well occupied camping ground with numbered generous pitches. Clean facilities and hot push button showers and outside washing up spot. Staff welcoming and helpful. Thanks for the stay.
Unit Type: Caravan
Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst travelling around Scotland. It was absolutely perfect and couldn't recommend it enough. Plenty of walks nearby with two villages in close proximity. Facilities are excellent and we were made to feel very welcome.
Unit Type: Tent
Excellent site
Stayed here twice now in our campervan. The place is immaculate, showers and toilets always clean. Pitches very spacious and with a campervan have ample space for an awning. Lovely Forrest walks straight from the campsite, all very clearly marked out. Great picnic area down by the river. If you need supplies aberfoyle is a 10 minute drive or you can walk through the Forrest along the river and get there by foot in 40 minutes. Definitely recommend it, and I will be coming back again

Quiet, beautiful and spotlessly clean. Lovely campsite

Lovely site
Well located for Aberfoyle, Lake of Mentieth and Loch Katrine. Stayed on a busy Bank Holiday weekend and it wasn't too crowded or noisy. Facilities all good, nice walks directly from the campsite. Would stay again.
