Alan Rogers Review

Camping in the Forest  is a partnership between the Forestry Commission and The Camping and Caravanning Club. This site is attractively laid out in a fairly informal style in several adjoining areas connected by narrow, part gravel, part tarmac roads, with access to the lochside. One of these areas, the Pinewood Area, is very popular and has 28 hardstandings (some distance from the toilet block). Of the 206 marked pitches on fairly level, firm grass, 78 have 16A electricity. This site, with something for everyone, would be great for family holidays. The Glenmore Forest Park lies close to the sandy shore of Loch Morlich amidst conifer woods and surrounded on three sides by the impressive Cairngorm mountains. There is regular snowfall in the winter months. Large motorhomes are accepted but check availability with site in advance.

The park is conveniently situated for a range of activities, including skiing (extensive lift system), orienteering, hill and mountain walking (way-marked walks), fishing and non-motorised watersports on the Loch.


Heated toilet and shower blocks include facilities for disabled visitors. Next to the site is a range of amenities including a café serving a variety of meals and snacks, and a Forestry Commission visitor centre. Barbecues are not permitted in dry weather. Bicycle hire. Fishing. Sandy beach (Blue Flag).
