Hello fellow campers, you’re very welcome to Keel Camping.

After a good number of years as a seasonal guest of the park I am delighted to be the new operator of Keel Camping, (formally Keel Sandybanks Caravan and Camping Park).

I am currently “pitching the tent” for the 2023 season, and busy working behind the scenes!. We will open on 6th April for the season.

Thank you for all your well wishes and heart warming stories of your connections and memories built in the Campsite over the years. We look forward to meeting you all in person during the season

I would like to wish the previous operators John and Nodlaig Nestor the very best in their retirement.

I look forward to welcoming returning and new guests to the campsite at Easter 2023.

Happy Camping

– Lisa Fitzsimons
