Balloch O'Dee Campsite in Kirkcowan is the ideal destination for campers, glampers and tourers looking for somewhere relaxing and tranquil to stay. Our campsite near Newton Stewart is on the edge of the Galloway National Forest Park, making us a true haven for nature lovers. We are the perfect base to explore a range of attractions in Dumfries & Galloway.
Our main camping field is in 4 acres of wonderful grounds. We have built stone fire pits for you to use because one of the best things about camping is gathering around a campfire in the evening whilst the stars are shining. Each fire pit has a pot stand for you to use for cooking and firewood is provided. Please note, we do not allow music onsite because we want all our guests to have the most peaceful experience possible.
