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.

Loved my stay here, facilities are great, very clean and just what you need. A special mention must go to the staff who go out their way to help you, will definitely be back.
Unit Type: Caravan
Brilliant campsite
What an excellent location! Took my bike and had a blast getting out on all the trails - direct from the campsite. The staff were incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful, the facilities were great, and the other site users were very nice. Lots of kids on site but really quiet in the evenings. Would definitely stay here again!
Unit Type: Camper Van
Great wee campsite
Only a quick one night stay to try out a new tent. First time for me camping in the uk. Lovely wee campsite. Reception staff very helpful and knowledgable. What more can u ask for a wee site down by the river. Great toilet and shower facility, which were sparklingly clean. Lovely well defined walk into Aberfoyle by the river. Will be back 😊
Unit Type: Tent
Wildlife haven
Saw Red Squirrels on site, enjoyed the organised bat walk on Saturday evening. Good walking and cycling
Unit Type: Motorhome
Super site.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cobleland. A peaceful site with spotlessly clean facilities. Very friendly and helpful wardens to whom we wish a happy retirement. The site is 2 miles from Aberfoyle which is accessible by a traffic free flat shared use path. There are plenty of opportunities for cycling and walking in the forest. We are planning to return.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Lovely campsite with good toilet and shower facilities
We stayed at the campsite for one night only due to a cycling event in Aberfoyle. We were able to pitch our tent near the waterfront. The toilet and shower facilities were excellent and spotless. Plenty of hot water. As we were only staying one night we cycles along the national cycle network 7 to Aberfoyle where there were a range of cafes and pubs. The cycle path is immediately outside of the campsite and means you do not need to walk or cycle along the road. The only unfortunate aspect was other people staying at the campsite who continued to talk loudly until 1am even though the information provided at registration clearly referred to quiet time between 11pm and 8am. I would encourage that this is pointed out in the future when people are booking in at reception. I would however visit the area again and there is plenty of opportunities for cyclists and walkers in the nearby forests.

Lovely place!
I love Cobleland and I’ve been there lots of times. It’s so close to Glasgow and Edinburgh but a different world. Being surrounded by the trees is peaceful. The river, the birds, the walks and cycle routes all make for a great weekend away. Aberfoyle has the Co-op and pubs. The toilets and showers are kept very clean- shower was lovely and hot which is appreciated in September.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Absolutely fabulous
Amazing site. Lovely staff. Spotless toilets and showers. Great for kids.
Unit Type: Tent
Excellent campsite, beautiful surroundings, clean and friendly staff
We had a fabulous time with the children, lots of great walks. Close to many top attractions like Lomond Loch and Doon Hill fairy trail. Clean, well organised, good pitches. Wish it was closer to home so we could visit more.

Motorhome Experience
This was my family's first outing in a motorhome so we didn't know what to expect. The staff on site were friendly and courteous. We informed them of our late arrival and they assisted us when we did arrive without any problems.
