Prices From £16.30 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.

Quiet Gem
Cobleland is a truly wonderful woodland campsite. With access to a plethora of walking it is ideally suited to those who like to explore, additionally, if it’s relaxation you’re after then the beautiful scenery and access to the river are perfect. The facilities are simple but very well kept and clean. We visited at the end of the season so it was fairly quiet however a full campsite may mean the shower facilities get busy. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. My ONLY negative comment is the ground works. Although the grass areas are well kept, there are a number of long ditches where the ground had settled along the electric hook up points, this means that during periods of sustained rainfall you can get areas of standing water causing the ground to become very muddy in places around the tents, this could be sorted with additional groundwork during the off season. However don’t let this put you off, just bring your wellies if the outlook is for lots of rain. Overall a fantastic site which i will definitely be visiting again.

Quiet & Restful
Not content with speding the previous weekend at Cobleland we then spent another weekend there. Quiet time of year, makes and excellent spot to stop. Facilities are good and everything is clean. Special mention to Graham and Tony they are just fantastic at looking after the site and have a wonderful sense of humour. Cobleland is a great spot to base for the Trossachs, so the weather wasn't the best, so what, no such thing as bad weather, just wrong clothing. We have stayed several times in the past and keep coming back as we love the area. Downside, they do not open early enough for our first trip away at the end of March or we would be there. However, will be there later on in 2020 for sure.

Peaceful quiet site
The site is very quiet and peaceful with good walks cycle tracks etc. Adjacent. The toilets are very dated but we're very clean all the time. The roads are in an appalling condition throughout the site but the verge, grass and site tidiness was first class. The wardens were friendly, jovial and very helpful and were a big asset to the site. Overall, yes, the site could do with a lot of work on the roadways but the size of pitches the cleanliness and the helpful staff make it a site we will return to. 3 stars instead of 5 because of the road ways.

Trip down memory lane.
We stayed here twenty years ago with our twins when they would have been around 6 years of age and it was simple friendly straight forward camping. Along the lines of peace, tranquility and enjoying nature. The site back then was just recovering from a flood. Last minute getaway this year in September with temperatures of 20 +degrees. We were cautious as sometimes memories can lead to disappointment. Not so, this time. The same simple ingredients of peace and quiet and being able to enjoy the nature. We had a great cycle and ended up visiting the local pub. It has just been taken over by the village, it served very good beer and a good choice of gins too. All was very friendly and welcoming there too. Great for walks. Very dog friendly too. Tony was so helpful and shared a lot of knowledge about the area too. Including the fact the river had recently flooded again. The site was immaculate and kept spotlessly clean. We loved it and decided to stay an extra night, again Tony was very helpful and made this possible with the minimum of fuss. We'll be back but hopefully with less of a time lapse this time.

Annual visit never disappoints
We stay at Cobleland at least once every year, it is quiet peaceful snuggled as it is in the woods. Bird life is a constant companion. Unfortunately the large grass area on the lower part of the site which runs alongside the Clyde can get a bit sodden after the inevitable rain that time of year (September/October). Best to take the hardstandings on the upper parts of the site. The shower block is a set of four individual (unisex) showers and the tiolets have the usual key code entry all kept to a high standard of cleanliness. On arrival you are greeted by friendly staff who will assist. Site is very handy for the town of Aberfoyle, a short bike ride down the old railway track. One minor gripe is the Motorhome service point. It remains and small drain in the service point area that can be difficult to get the grey water outlet positioned right over the drain. Good job we brought our caravan this time then! All in all a very quiet site with helpful friendly staff and one we will visit again.

Great site pity about the trees
This is a great site with regards to location and most of the pitches are good. The facilities are old but clean and adequate. I would however avoid pitch 57 if it is raining as the tall oak trees collect the water in their leaves and then drop them in massive drops onto your outfit which I can assure you will keep you awake (also drops acorns)

Lovely site and safe for kids
Stayed at Cobleland Campsite as attending Dukes Weekend. Was a lovely site set withing a wooded area but with easy access to toilet and shower block. Had an electric pitch, which although we didn't end up using, was easy to access and near the pitch. Our son was impressed with the playground, more for slightly older children, he is 6 and a little small for some items. Road in park quiet enough that he was safe to walk back and forth to playground without assistance. Pitch close enough we could keep an eye on him safely. Site was quiet from bout 9, possibly because it was dark by then. Staff were helpful and friendly. Will definitely be back, even if just at next year's Dukes Weekender. Would recommend

Graham was very helpful
We booked into Cobleland campsite as we had a problem with our hired motorhome and we are not local, Graham helpfully pointed us in the direction of a repair centre who were great. Great friendly service, nice site with good facilities. Thanks
