Please note: National Park Authority campsites at Loch Chon, Loch Achray and Inchcailloch will reopen on 1st April 2023 and can be booked four weeks in advance. Booking is now open.
Surrounded by forest and with wonderful views of nearby hills and mountains, Loch Chon is a gem of a discovery for outdoors fans. It’s fabled that the sheltered water, located between Kinlochard and Inversnaid on the minor B829 road, has a resident kelpie (water spirit), as well as one of the world’s largest populations of faeries!

Loch Chon is an informal campsite offering the opportunity to camp in a small, picturesque site with basic facilities. Nestled in woodland on the shores of beautiful Loch Chon, it offers 26 pitches for tents through a mixture of open and woodland camping. Each pitch comes with one designated parking space, access to toilets and fresh water.
There are two accessible pitches (Pitches 8 and 9), with accessible toilets and designated parking nearby, and one double pitch (pitch 21) with space for two tents for bookings of four or more adults. View a map of the campsite >
What you need to know
The campsite is nestled in woodland, with beautiful views over Loch Chon and the surrounding area.
Drinking water and shared washing up facilities are available on site and you should come prepared with everything you need.
Toilets on-site – please note there are no showers.
Prices are £10 per adult per night, children under 16 go free.
There is a £3 charge to bring a car on site and you will be allocated one designated parking space when you book. There is no additional parking on site.
There is no charge if you arrive on foot or by bicycle.
Please note that bins are not provided so campers are asked to take home all waste and recycling to dispose of at home.
We also encourage campers to try to reduce the amount of waste they generate while staying at the campsite.
Access across the site is provided by a formal path network, not all the paths are flat and there are some short flights of steps.
Pitches are not immediately located next to the car park spaces and you will have to carry your gear up to 150 metres, depending on your pitch location.
Accessible pitches (Pitches 8 and 9) are available on-site, with accessible toilets and designated parking nearby.
Pitches come with fire bowls and fire wood is available to pre-book online along with your camping pitch – we have found that people tend to enjoy a fire so much that two bags are often required.
Pitches 7, 15, 18 and 19 have raised wooden platforms and you’ll need to use the chains and hooks provided in order to secure your tent. Read here a very easy guide on how to use the chains and hooks. Our poster on site will also offer you guidance.
Your dog is welcome too! Check out the T&Cs for more info.
Please do not bring hammocks for the pitches. We’re pretty chuffed with our ancient woodland here and hammock use can damage the trees.
You can book up to 4 weeks in advance and stay for up to three nights.
Pitches are available from 2pm on the day of arrival and must be vacated by 11am on day of your departure.
Our full terms and conditions provide important information about your stay. Please familiarise yourself with them before you arrive.
There will be lots of midges during the summer months. Please come prepared!
Please note that there is no phone reception at this location.
