Now Open! Welcome to 300 square miles of wilderness...

The UK’s 1st Dark Sky Park and The One & Only Park In The Galloway Forrest

We’re excited to announce that we are reopening on the 1st March, for bookings contact us via email or telephone! 


Glentrool Camping and Caravan Site, on the edge of Britain’s largest forest park, is the perfect base from which to explore more than 300 square miles of stunning wilderness.

The site itself is a small tranquil haven we’ve nicknamed ‘Expedition Base Camp’ because of its proximity to the coast-to-coast Southern Upland Way, the foot of Merrick – the highest peak in the Galloway Hills at 2,766 ft - two of the world-renowned 7Stanes Mountain Biking Trails, RSPB Wood of Cree Reserve and so much more.

As one of the best areas on the planet for stargazing, the Galloway Forest Park is also the UK’s first official Dark Skies Park.

With hundreds of square miles of stunning landscape, surrounded by a huge variety of wildlife, Glentrool Camping and Caravan Site is the ideal place to pitch your tent or park up your caravan and escape from the stresses and strains of modern living for a truly relaxing and memorable break away from it all.

So, if you’re looking for relaxation, peace and tranquillity, breathtaking scenery to explore or to discover nature at its best, then we look forward to welcoming you to the Glentrool Camping and Caravan Site. Click here for details of our site facilities.

How to reach Glentrool Camping and Caravan Site

Despite lying within one of Scotland's great wilderness areas, Glentrool Camping and Caravan Site in the Galloway Forest Park is just over two hours' drive from the M6 / M74 on the Border between England and Scotland. Glentrool Camping & Caravan Site is situated just off the A714 Newton Stewart to Girvan Road. On arriving at Bargrennan village, turn right (from Newton Stewart direction) at the junction or left (from Girvan direction) and travel past the House o' Hill pub for about half a mile. We are on the left.
