Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I'm just back from this campsite and wish i was there still.. it might get busy in high season but this time of year, and midweek, it's as close to wild camping as you get on a campsite. Loads of little semi secluded spots right by the river amidst some trees, very reasonable. Great swimming in the lake and a short hop on the bike to Mountshannon. Perfect for a shoulder season getaway

Just back after 2 nights, unfortunately we had the wettest night all summer on our first night. We were a party of two tents, we arrived after out friends, their checkin was informative, given a map etc ours was more lax(I think it may have been the owner), you pick your own pitches which does have its advantages but if it’s your first time on site a little guidance would help. You can pitch by the lake which are beautiful but no electricity and as our weather wasn’t great can be a couple of degree cooler. We pitched at the camping green there was plenty of room. There was a block of toilets and showers close by all cleaned on a regular basis and no queue for showers. On the green is a number of shelters some with tables and benches which are used for cooking and sitting by

We booked to stay here a few days ago and we were astounded with the views and the experience we had. We were able to find a little pitch on the lake site and set up camp with a little area to sit by the water. we hired a boat for the day for fishing and we had a swim in the lake before dinner. Facilities were perfectly clean and in a good location. The resident squirrel was too cute as were the ducks and swans who visited us more then once. It was absolute bliss and we didnt want to leave the next day we will be back very soon.

After 15 years, I’ve just returned from a short stay at Lake side with my 2 boys and their friends, (aged 8-11). Briefly met with owner and he was a very helpful an approachable man. A very busy person this weekend. I give this facility a 10/10. The setting is stunning, with pitches, caravans and mobile homes dotted around the facility. A little random in places, added to its unique charm. In a similar fashion to Austrian camp sites, the camping area had a number of sheltered picnic tables which on this occasion were used to shelter form the sun. We were last minute arrivals, but if you book in time you can choose to locate in on the shore side or in the woods, or in the camping green. Fire pits are allowed with prior permission from management with regard to location. The

Stayed for 3 nights in a touring caravan. Had a pitch right on the edge of the beautiful lake, ask for Eagles Bay pitches. The facilities are clean(if a little dated) and the campers kitchen has a microwave, cooker, oven and fridge freezer, there is also a well equipped laundry room.Easy walk into the local village where there is a nice pub and a small café/bistro. The site is very family orientated with plenty play areas for children. The site has a mixture of permanent mobile homes and chalets and also has a small mooring for boats. We took kayaks and enjoyed the tranquility of the water. We felt it was value for money and will definitely return.

I write this review as I sit outside my caravan on the banks of Lough Derg. Lakeside caravan/camp site is really a breath of fresh air. The toilets and showers are clean and checked by the friendly and helpful staff regularly. However the facilities could do with being upgraded and modernised. The pitch we have is right alongside the lake and is simply idyllic. Swans swam up to us this morning to greet us. Red squirrels roam around the site without a care in the world. Plenty of electric and water points. Boating, kayaking, fishing, tennis, football and beautiful walks are all here for the visitor to enjoy. I'll be back here for certain.

I have now stayed here with friends in July or August for a few summers in a row and can confidently recommend this place. The location is beyond stunning. Lough Derg has to be seen to be believed. There are no shortage of water based activities to be enjoyed. Kayaking around the islands or a boat ride out to Holy Island to see one of Ireland’s oldest churches ( rebuilt by Brian Boru in the year 900 after its was sacked by vikings!) Or just plain old swimming or fishing. The whole area has a magical feeling to it and will appeal to wildlife lovers and photographers as there are many different types of bird life living on the lake including sea eagles. The place is a paradise for kids too with outdoor activities taking up most of their time, the woodland is safe and close to

When I told my Mam that my family were heading to Mountshannon camping for the weekend she was all excited for us saying how it was the nicest site we ever stayed in ourselves as kids. I couldn't remember it as we are talking 30+ years ago but on arrival I bet not much has changed.... except the nice part... A lot could be done for very little cost but there seems to be a lack of pride in the place. The entrance & sites close by are nice but then drive on down to the back for pitches. It's like one of those links that pops up on FB for places that time forgot. Nothing but abandoned mobile homes there & down by the lake where the pitches would be beautiful. I can only imagine the cost of disposing of these but I can also only imagine them being a hilton for rodents. Get them

We have been here 3 times, twice in a tent and most recently we rented a mobile home. Price was very reasonable, and mobile had everything you need. A beautiful view of the lake, and so peaceful, noone on top of us - it was like our own private spot. This is a great base for touring Clare but there is also plenty to do on site, rent a boat or canoe, take a trip to Holy Island, eagle watch,tennis, table tennis, dive of the little pier. A wonderful spot we will be back again - thank you :)

Overall the setting is beautiful and largely enjoyed our stay. Stayed two nights. First night, people were singing (not very well) until 01.30. Second night, people were making noise until 03.00. Very tired after the late night drama though.
