PREVIOUS UPDATES - COVID-19
COVID - 19 - Updated 30th June 2020.
We will be reopening on the 18th of July 2020 for Static Caravan Hire, Lodge Hire and Camping Pod Hire.
We are sorry to announce that Oban Caravan & Camping Park will not be opening to Motorhomes, Touring Caravans, Campervans and Tents during the remainder of the 2020 season.
The safety of our guests, the local community, our staff and our own family remain our most important considerations. The virus is still circulating and COVID-19 has the capability to return to hit us even harder the second time around.
Our site is run by our family and another family. If any of us become ill, we will need to isolate for 14 days. That could potentially lead to immediate closure and disruption to people’s holidays without warning.
After spending many hours studying all the information available to us and assessing the risks to the best of our ability, we do not feel that we can operate in a way that would be safe for our guests or ourselves with large numbers of guests using shared facilities. We therefore decided it was safest to limit the number of guests on site, so that there will be very few people using our toilets, showers, water points and dishwashing facilities.
Our area has one of the lowest infection rates in the UK. If we encourage a large number of guests to visit Oban from more badly affected areas, we risk bringing more COVID-19 to our local community. Our business is important to us, but so are the lives of people in the local community.
This decision was not taken lightly. We understand the disappointment it will cause to many people hoping to visit our corner of Oban, after months of lockdown. To all our valued customers and friends, we sincerely apologise.
We ask that guests respect and understand our decision and we hope to be able to welcome you back in better times next year. We will re-open for camping, touring caravans, motorhomes and campervans for the 2021 season.
For those of you who would like to book Static Caravan, Lodge or Camping Pod accommodation, please telephone us on 01631 562425 between 9am and 5pm to book. For any queries please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
COVID - 19 - Updated 24th June 2020.
Due to the current situation with COVID-19 we are still closed at the moment. We are aiming to re-open our Static Caravans, Lodges and Camping Pods for hire from Saturday the 18th of July 2020. At this stage we do not know if the touring and camping part of our site will be re-opening on the same date or at a later date. We will post an update on this website as soon as we have a definite date. If you would like to book Static Caravan or Lodge HIre, please telephone to book. We're looking forward to welcoming you back to Oban as soon as it is safe for us to reopen.
COVID-19 - Updated 27th May 2020.
We are currently receiving a lot of emails and telephone calls asking if we will be open this coming weekend for camping, motorhomes and touring caravans. Due to the current situation with COVID-19 we are still closed and we will remain closed until the Scottish government guidelines for campsites and caravan parks changes. We're looking forward to welcoming you back to Oban as soon as it is safe for us to reopen. Please do not travel to Oban this weekend hoping that we will be able to let you onto the site as you've travelled a long way to be here. Unfortunately we will be unable to offer you a pitch at the current time. We hope that you all stay safe and well and we hope to see you again soon.
COVID-19 - Updated 13th May 2020.
The situation with Coronavirus means that we will now be remaining closed until July 1st 2020 at the earliest. We will continue to review the situation daily and any changes to our opening date will be posted here.
We aim to reopen as soon as it is safe to do so and we look forward to being able to welcome visitors back to Oban.
COVID-19 - Updated 2nd April 2020.
The situation with Coronavirus has progressed since we delayed our opening of the site. On March 20th we decided that we would not be opening on our usual opening date of April 1st. We now know that we will be unable to open during the month of May 2020.
For our customers who have booked static caravan, lodge or camping pod accommodation with us to visit Oban during the month of May, please get in contact with us by telephone or email from Monday 6th of April onwards and we will arrange either a credit which can be used when we reopen, or a full refund for your holiday.
We will continue to review the situation daily and any updates will be posted on our website and Facebook page. We intend to reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.
