  • Very impressed with visit to this site. Very good children playing areas and on site facilities is clean and satisfactory for all sizes of touring caravans. 
  • We camped for two nights & thoroughly enjoyed it. Good facilities & nice views from the tent area. When you camp you also get a car park pass for the park which is a nice touch.
  • Carnfunock County Park is a great venue for families. The site offers wide open spaces. A variety of walking trails, an activity centre, kids park, driving range, camping facilities and a gift shop. Most things are free with prices on a few activities such as the driving range. The car park is also paid but it's only a few £ for all day parking. There's also loads of picnic benches and BBQ rests for hot sunny days throughout the park too. Carnfunock also has a garden maze free of charge which although not particularly difficult, is still great fun for the kids to solve. It's well designed with a perimeter fence and a steward on the initial entrance should anyone get lost. This is a regular spot for our family time and time again.
  • great day out with my son and local cafe was great value and tasty and the lady serving us was very friendly
  • Great facilities for children and a nice place to walk through for parents too.
  • What a lovely place to visit. I am sure if you posted some more photo's especially of the view of the sea that your visitor numbers would increase, thanks Stewart
