Camp in the midst of spectacular Highland scenery and explore Glen Nevis on the many footpaths that wind through forest and alongside the River Nevis. Alternatively, relax on our park, enjoy the views & fresh mountain air and visit our restaurant to sample traditional Highland hospitality.
We have three different types of pitches available to book. All pitches have parking and facilities nearby.
Regular Tent Pitch
A standard camping pitch without electric hookup. Our park is arranged in fields rather than designated pitches so you can choose the perfect pitch. We also have a separate area kept aside for bookings. Book now:
Designated Electric Pitch
Specific numbered pitch with electric hookup (16 Amp). Note that these pitches are subject to more wear-and-tear than others so we occasionally have to move bookings to our 'Open Field' electric tent pitches.
Open Field Electric Pitch
A more flexible option, allowing you to choose your own electric pitch (16 Amp) from a field with a selection of electric hookups.
Fantastic restaurant & bar offering breakfast (May-Sept), lunch and dinner.

Mountain Bike World Cup 1st - 2nd June 2019
Our site is generally very busy during the world mountain bike championship weekend and we advise booking early to avoid disappointment.
The majority of our customers arrive without a booking and we keep 200 pitches available on a first-come-first-served basis.
We are more than happy to take advance bookings though and we charge a non-refundable £5 admin booking fee for this service with the balance payable on arrival at Campsite Reception.
Cancellations: If booking is cancelled more than 24 hours before arrival the full pitch fees minus a £5 booking admin fee will be refunded. No refunds are given for cancellations made within 24 hours of arrival.
No Show: Bookings who do not show are automatically cancelled off the system the following morning and made fully available once more. We are unable to hold empty pitches not knowing whether a customer may or may not arrive. If full payment is made for the pitch in advance then it will be held for the duration of the booking.
A confirmation will be sent for all reservations accepted. The management reserves the right to decline any booking that is considered unsuitable.
Our campsite has a fantastic position in the heart of Glen Nevis with a great selection of nearby walks.
Ben Nevis, the River Nevis, Woodland Walks, Steall falls, Highland Wildlife, Mountain Streams, historic sites - all available from your tent.
Climbing Ben Nevis
We are located at the foot of Ben Nevis and are a short walk from the 'tourist path' to the summit. It's a great climb and the views from the top on a clear day are amazing.
However, it's very important that you follow the safety information in the leaflet below and we recommend that you visit the nearby Glen Nevis Visitor Centre for more information on current climbing conditions before you set off.
"...To say it's amazing is an understatement. It is everything and more that is expected from a campsite. It's immaculately clean. The cleaners/workers work extremely hard to keep it spotless. They don't seem to rest! The views are incredible"
-Tripadvisor January 2017
"The campsite was positioned perfectly for you to see people descending Ben Nevis in the night with their head torches which made the mountain look like it was covered in moving stars. The staff were lovely and very welcoming... I highly recommend this campsite to those wanting to be close to Fort William but also close to Ben Nevis."
-Tripadvisor October 2016
"This is the second time we've visited this caravan park, both times off season, so it was reasonably quiet with plenty of choice of pitches. The facilities are very clean and well kept and the views all around the site are stunning when the mist lifts!"
-Tripadvisor October 2016
"A very relaxing site at the foot of Benn Nevis. A lovely pub/restaurant a few yards from the site. May was a good month to visit. The shower block was clean. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We definitely recommend a visit. Dog friendly with an attached dog walking field."
-Tripadvisor October 2016

Walking in Glen Nevis
For the energetic, the footpath up Ben Nevis (highest mountain in the UK) starts from Glen Nevis. The West Highland Way also passes through Glen Nevis at the end of a 95 mile walk from Glasgow.
The Gorge is a fabulous feature of the Glen and provides a spectacular walk through to the higher falls.
