LOCH KEN HOLIDAY PARK is found on the shores of Loch Ken set amidst beautiful countryside. It is a quiet, rural camping and caravan park. The camp site occupies ten acres on the boundary of the Bryson family, six hundred acre stock farm.
Adjacent to the park are the RSPB Ken-Dee Marshes bird reservation, the “Galloway Kite Trail” , the kite feeding station in Laurieston and the Galloway Forest Park with its 300 square miles of beautiful green forest, heather-clad hills, wealth of wildlife and two of the 7stanes mountain biking centres, Glentrool and Kirroughtree, which offers our visitors many opportunities to walk, climb, cycle and bird watch. At night, it is also one of the best spots in the UK for stargazing with the naked eye, as it's the first Dark Sky Park in the UK and one of only two in Europe!
Among pursuits enjoyed on the Park and Loch Ken are fishing, sailing, water skiing and walking.
Loch Ken Water Ski School and its Marina, only one mile up the road, has a cutting edge water-ski & wakeboard boat and a highly trained professional team, with activities including ringos, banana boating and speed boat trips.
The Galloway Activity Centre, on the banks of Lock Ken 5 miles from our park, offers a wide range of outdoor activities on and off the water, to chose from Sailing, Windsurfing, Powerboating, Kayaking, Canoeing, Outdoor Laser Quest, Archery, Mountain Biking, Orienteering, Climbing/Abseiling and more...
There are some friendly nine and eighteen hole golf courses nearby too.
The fishing is excellent, many fishermen return each year to catch the famous Loch Ken pike, roach, bream and perch.
Parton is in the centre of Galloway with the delightful market "food town" of Castle Douglas, seven miles away, and the "art town" of Kirkcudbright fifteen miles away.
