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 site
Lovely site, friendly staff (did their best to find us the best pitch and least soggy ground), beautiful river and walks in the forest. We only stayed one night and it was pouring with rain the whole time, would have loved to come back with nicer weather!
Unit Type: Tent
Great Campsite
I went camping for the first time with my family and we all loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful. The facilities were good and nice and clean. Great walks and plenty to do! Would definitely recommend.

Great Campsite!
Wevhad a great stay at Cobleland last weekend. Generous pitch sizes, helpful staff, clean facilities. Lots of families there so the play area was well used! Short walk through the woods to the field and little beach meant the kids could swim in the river. Great stay! Thank you
Unit Type: Tent
Lovely as always
This was our fifth visit to Cobleland and as ever, we had a great time. The staff have been consistently warm and friendly each time and more than willing to assist with the inevitable issues that arise when camping. The kids love the site and surrounding areas. Toilets, showers and pot wash are always clean. Quiet time seems to be respected by all campers. Nice, sensible and relaxed (within reason) policy on how to site on pitch. We visit the Glenmore site quite often and find the staff off putting whereas the staff at Cobleland are a big part of the reason why we're all keen to return.

Always Awesome!
I have been staying at Cobleland for a few years now and I love it. I bring my kids here every year, sometimes twice a year and they love playing in the woods and visiting the local area. The campsite is clean and well looked after and the people are fantastic. There's a lovely little play area and private wooded area for the kids, laundry and dishwashing facilities, clean toilet and shower block and a good little shop. The site has great links through the woods and by road to local villages with great local pubs, shops and attractions like Go-Ape, Loch Katrine, 3 Lochs drive, water sports on Loch Ard, cycling routes, whiskey distilleries. Going further afield but still within an hour are Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument, Duncarron Medieval Village, The Kelpies, Falkirk Wheel, Blair Drummond Safari Park, Glasgow Science Museum, Kelvin Art Gallery, Glasgow School of Art... The scenery is breathtaking even on dull days but the midgies and horse flies pack a nasty bite so take some repellant or buy some from the shops onsite or in Aberfoyle. Food-wise - I'd highly recommend The Forth Inn (amazing Haggis Burger!!), Faerie Tree and Aberfoyle Delicatessan (anything in a pie and fantastic selection of meat) to eat in or take away and Bruno's chips shop in Callander.

A Delight in the Off-Season, a Nightmare during the School Holidays
We have visited this site on 3 occasions, with the first two being in the spring when the site was not busy and those there were mainly regular caravanners and both hardstanding and grass pitches are available with electrical hook-ups to most of the camping area. The upper terraces are fine, except for a tricky narrow twisting access in snowy/icy conditions, and most of the lower grass areas next to the river is not used out of season. The footpath to the North, starting at the campsite, and partially alongside the Forth river, turns inland and then back over a footbridge towards the Rob Roy Hotel and onwards to Aberfoyle, and is ideal for walking dogs. The 3rd time we visited was this summer, during the school holidays, and whilst we have no problem with well behaved children on campsites, this time there were many local families camping in tents in groups with children that appeared to unsupervised from dawn until after 11pm. In contrast, the Dutch, German and other European families were incredibly better behaved.... just saying..... The single shower block & separate toilet block are perfectly acceptable for the off-season, and well maintained, but are overstretched and inadequate in number for the peak season.

What can i say, this place is magical, great walks, great facilities and its run really well

Everything you need in a campsite
We stayed here for 2 nights in our VW campervan. The site is well placed being in walking distance to Aberfoyle, right by the River Forth and the Loch Ard Forest. The site was very neat, tidy and well-maintained. The ablutions were very clean and well looked after, and there was plenty of hot water for showers and for washing up. The pitch was nice and level and had its own electric hookup point, and there was a water supply very close by. Although we didn't use it, the local pub provide a shuttle service at weekends! All in all, it was everything you want in a campsite.

nice small site, beautifull scenery but to noisy on weekends for the over 40 couples
this is a lovely sight in the middle of beautifull scenery. The site is next to a lovely river and there is a nice town 2 mins away with everything you will need. That said i found the showers and bathrooms lower standard than im used to and the showers are not very spacious compaired to ones from other sites. The site is very small and i felt it was over subscribed. It is very family orientated and as such is quite noisy, with noise on the weekend going well over the 11pm sound cutoff. IF you are taking a family then it is great, for couples over 40 i would say try another, all in all not a bad site at all though, regardless of my gripes.
