Forfar Lochside CMC Site, Forfar Country Park, Forfar, DD8 1BT, Tel 01307468917

To Find Site:- From A90 take A94 into Forfar. After about a mile, at traffic lights, turn left. The entrance to the Country Park is about 90 metres on the left but is not that obvious! There are signs including a small caravan sign. Probably the best indicator is a sign opposite the entrance that signs to a car park with a caravan symbol to the right but it is here you turn left and make your way down to the campsite.

Forfar Lochside is a nice campsite on the edge of the Angus county town of Forfar, it also adjoins the Forfar Country Park. The site is open from early March to early November and non-members are accepted. There are 63 pitches, all but 12 are on hardstandings, 8 of the hardstandings are serviced pitches. In the centre of the site is a large grass area which can be used for tents. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and use CEE17 blue connectors and are rated at 16 amps. The electric bollards have a co-ax TV connectors. These are free to use but you must provide your own cable. There are a couple of service points for water and waste water. The motorhome service point is at the site entrance and has open grills and can probably take two motorhomes at a time. The central facility block contains the reception as well as the toilet block which is of an excellent standard. There is also an enclosed washing up area and a laundry. There is site wide WiFi and the 4G signal is good. There is not much on site for children but there is a gate directly into a large playground in the adjacent park.
