I attended here in early September. The camp site was quiet with good views. Everything I need was close to hand such as water and electricity. There was some drainage issues around my caravan however there was a lot of rain. Over all a good experience.

Stayed in a caravan for 2 nights with our 2 children and had a great time. Park was great and staff were very friendly and also supplied us with 2016 booklet of caravan locations which was our bible for the rest of our 2 week trip around Ireland! Would recommend !

This site is set close to the very old town of Ballyshannon, and by the dam of Lough Erne. It is in a lovely setting beside the lake and is within easy reach of the Belleek pottery and further to Enniskillen.
