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.

Fantastic campsite
/
Great site with plenty of facilities! Showers, places to wash dishes, fresh water and clean toilets/showers! Staff are very friendly and were able to supply us with extra gas since ours ran out within the first day! Pitches were flat as to be expected. Great location as well as only a 2 minutes drive/short walk to Aberfoyle, which has shops, pub, chippy etc. Just a shame about the Scottish weather really

A lovely place!

We have just had a brief stay at Coblelands and will definitely be back. It's in a beautiful setting with fantastic walks straight from the site. The people are friendly and relaxed and the pitches spacious. Good, clean facilities. Even the midges were few while we were there!

Sunny day by the river

Live 10 miles away but had one day camping with my two daughters. The weather was lovely so made it all the better. The wee ones loved going to the riverside and fishing with a bet. Had dinner there too with a BBQ. Facilities excellent, toilets and showers clean. Pitch great. No complaints at all, memories were made

From the moment I arrived until I left the whole experience was top notch, the staff were all very friendly and helpful, the facilities were great and kept so clean and tidy, the scenery was beautiful and with a spot of fishing thrown in as well I for one will be back, thank you for a great stay

Great location
/
A 3 night stay on our 1st leg of a 10 night tour of Scotland and it didn't disappoint. On arrival we were greeted in a very friendly and warm manner. We were very happy to see 'Skin so soft' for sale (very good midge deterrent) as our own hadn't arrived before we left for our break. Initial difficulties on the hardstanding pitch when my caravan kept 'jumping' off its levelling block (not sure why but think it was due to deep layer of larger stone filling on pitch) but staff happily offered a grass pitch closer to the river which was perfect. Location is fabulous with walks literally on your doorstep. Local village (Aberfoyle) has all you need for groceries, a drink or 2 and some shopping. Get yourself to the local Lodge attraction where there's lots of things to do like walking or biking trails and a Go Ape facility. I most certainly look forward to a return visit and hope it's sooner rather than later.

Excellent campsite
/
Large clean well laid out campsite with staff on site from 08:00am to 22:00 pm everyday and the wardens are the most approachable accommodating friendly people you could ever hope to meet. The toilet and shower blocks are spotlessly clean with endless hot water and three large sinks for washing up, the pitches are large enough for an eight man tent with car parked along side. This is a perfect site for exploring Scotland or the beautiful surrounding countryside and the local town Aberfoyle [just over a mile and a half away] is well equipped to meet your needs from a loaf of bread to a restaurant meal. This is a site we will definitely be returning to and have no hesitation in recommending. Well done to everyone, thank you for a lovely weeks holiday. Mr Mrs Farthing

Excellent campsite

Lovely setting next to the river and a nice wee playpark for the kids. Our son left his beloved bunny teddy behind and it was sent out to us the next day. Thanks so much, he was very emotional when it arrived! Will def be back.
