Reasonably priced campsite and well maintained. Showers and toilet blocks are well looked after. Plenty of walks/cycles to take arround the lake or grounds. We had a great time and will be back. Hard standing sites with EHU.

A fun afternoon activity with beautiful views on the Mourne Mountains in the backdrop! Make sure to complete the Peace Maze, and enjoy the gardens if you have time.

It has been a while and improved with more and more facilities for families. Walk around the lake, play with the children. Don’t miss the leave maze. Don’t miss it thinking other forest are better. This little gem has so much to offer.
