We are committed to listening to feedback on camping in the National Park and using this to make improvements where we can.
A wide range of feedback has been gathered over the camping seasons and this has been used to inform the changes we make.
This page provides an outline of what these changes are. We will continue to keep this page updated with changes that happen over the course of the season.
Taking on board feedback from visitors and as part of our Camping Development Framework, we have installed a new motorhome service point at Tarbet, to provide motorhome users somewhere to dispose of their waste responsibly for a donation.
Many campsites in the National Park also offer disposal services, however, these are usually for campsite customers only. Trips should be planned accordingly as irresponsible disposal of waste can cause environmental problems for facilities like public toilets.
We have introduced 24-hour accessible toilets at our visitor sites at both Tarbet and Inveruglas to provide round the clock facilities for campers and other visitors. This was part of a wider programme of improvement to our visitor sites along West Loch Lomond which has seen our toilets upgraded, new bins installed and improvements to the car park at Inveruglas. These upgrades will deliver a range of benefits including increasing accessibility, lowering the carbon footprint and reducing litter.
We will be installing new signage at our campsites with information to help people enjoy their stay sustainably and responsibly including advice on fires, toilets, water and waste.
We’ve been making small adjustments to the information provided on our website regarding camping in the National Park based on feedback from campers and other visitors. Prior to the season starting, more information was added to camping pages to let visitors know about tick safety and precautions to take when visiting the area.
Our camping feedback page has been updated with figures from surveys carried out during last year’s camping season.
