Cobleland 07
Prices From £16.80 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.

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.
Unit Type: Camper Van
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
Unit Type: Camper Van
warm,welcome,and very friendly.
Very warm welcome, we were given simple uncomplicated instructions with lots of tips to get the best out of our stay. Facilities were good and well presented ,despite issues that COVID 19 has caused.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Very nice campsite, friendly staff, clean facilities. Located few minutes from Aberfoyle and really nice walks around. Definitely recommend and hope to go back again.
Unit Type: Trailer Tent
Busy and noisy but lovely surroundings
The surrounding area of this site is lovely and has a lot to offer, we also had a very informative welcome, however the site was very busy and noisy up to after 1am then 7am so consequently not relaxing and conducive to good sleep. Our friends used the shower/toilet facilities and people had left wet wipes etc…. everywhere. It is a shame but we would not use this site again as there are other sites within that area
Unit Type: Caravan
Fantastic stay, friendliest of welcomes, great facilities
Myself and four friends stayed at Cobleland on Saturday night. We were made to feel extremely welcome, given fantastic recommendations by the wardens, and we’re extremely impressed by the facilities on site. Would thoroughly recommend a visit here.
Unit Type: Tent
Great place
Lovely relaxed campsite. Set by the river and forest. Toilets and showers clean. Site managers very amenable and helpful. Will come again.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Beautiful location
Beautiful location...great staff. Community Pub 450 yards up the road. Aberfoyle nearby and can walk and also bus service passes the site. Loved it.
Unit Type: Caravan
A really lovely place to stay, with not only a very pretty campsite with tents getting the best pitches on the riverside with uninterrupted view, but paths directly from the site into the forest and along the river enabling walks as long or short as you like. Just beautiful. We did have fab weather both days which meant we could have a bbq on the evenings 😋🙂 As for the toilets and showers, they were spotlessly clean including tops and mirrors and very adequate. As for needing modernisation and cracked tiles as mentioned on other reviews I read ?????. Even the tempremenal hand dryer is due to be replaced. The individual shower cubicles are great, enabling privacy. (The only thing I can suggest is maybe a stool but maybe difficult re Covid) I went for a shower early Sunday morning and it was a bit chilly but to my delight the cubicle was warm due to a heater provided! Very nice. But didn't see a mop bucket to clean the floor when finished as requested. The site was very busy Saturday night but guests were not noisy at all. 🙂 I hope this review helps those of you who like me were a bit concerned due to the unnecessary negative comments imo and instead gives you the confidence to choose Cobleland. We saw a red squirrel, a woodpecker and lots of other birds. No fairies though Thankyou Cobleland. May see you again next year
