Loch Ken Holiday Park is found on the shores of Loch Ken set amidst beautiful countryside. This small well sheltered park is renowned for its friendliness and cleanliness. It is a quiet, rural camping and caravan park.
A peaceful haven in an area of outstanding beauty with a wealth of wildlife, with panoramic views over Loch Ken. Wild duck, swans and red kites are regular inhabitants.

Adjacent to the park are the RSPB bird reservation, the "Galloway Kite Trail" and the Galloway Forest Park which offers our visitors many opportunities to walk, climb, cycle and bird watch.

Among pursuits enjoyed on the Park and Loch Ken are fishing, sailing, water skiing and walking. There are some friendly nine and eighteen hole golf courses nearby too.

The fishing is excellent, many fishermen return each year to catch the famous Loch Ken pike, roach, bream and perch.
Parton is in the centre of Galloway with the delightful market "food town" of Castle Douglas, seven miles away, and the "art town" of Kirkcudbright fifteen miles away.

The camp site occupies ten acres on the boundary of the Bryson family, six hundred acre stock farm.
