Castlewellan Forest Park reviews
We had a cloudy weather when we went there but still we enjoyed the visit. Its good walk around the lake but its so relaxing and stress relieving especially at times like this (Pandemic). I advise... more »
the toilets r so bad the smell and dirty, the staff should clean them better shameful they used to be so clean bring back the guy that was cleaning them. more »
Huge camping field that can accommodate large family tents. Best to camp during the week. Stay clear at weekends as it is extremely noisy with large groups drinking into the early hours and local teenagers partying in the Park. It's a different park Mon to Fri. Hence the 5 stars.
We had a great couple of nights here with a large group of families with kids. There are lots of activities on site and to be honest we could’ve stayed for a week. A beautiful location. Only small downside would be the shower and bathroom facilities -they could do with being cleaned a bit more regularly. Overall,a fantastic time was had by all and I would love to return.
