Walked most of the black trail and part of the red trail and saw really beautiful forests, river walks, and mountain views along the farside boundary. A mixture of everything and a good workout too. Looking forward to my next visit.

Love this place! It’s wonderful to be among nature & there’s lots of different walks you can do that no two journeys need to be the same! The river is great for photos & is good for the dog to cool off in summer too! Beautiful place!

A really wonderful location for a family walk with our dogs. There's some really beautiful scenes to take in along the river with some small waterfalls. Fortunately, on our visit the area wasn't busy.

This review is more about the caravan site than the forrest which is always amazing to visit.

I stay here a lot as i love the place but i do feel the need to mention some things on here regarding the campsite. Since the council have taken over the site i have noticed changes in the cleanliness massively.

When i was here in december the shower block and toilets definately were not cleaned properly once during my visit. I left a few bits behind to see if it was to be cleaned prior to coming here in december and my surprise at coming across these items disgusted me. The toilets havent been cleaned once this week and are disgusting and totally unhygienic. The showers are filthy. The sluice on the bottom ring of the site hasnt been cleaned in dear knows how long and is absolutely disgusting. Some bright spark has decided to put a grill over the hole which then stops all toilet paper and waste (💩) getting down i was actually sick emptying my toilet waste as i had to look at someones waste in front of me 🤢🤢. These issues really need addressed. Before the council took over the site the forrest staff kept them as clean as they could there wasnt an issue. The cleanest toilet up there is the one i cleaned before i used it!

Gorgeous forest and walking trails. One of the view natural forest parks in Ireland and really worth a visit to see native red squirrels, beautiful trees and streams. Good hikes and picnic areas.

The most beautiful, unspoilt nature to be walked through - so calming, peaceful and joyful all at once!

Beautiful area of County Down with easy hiking, old forest and scenic walks around the Shimna River. My wife and I spent a little over an hour hiking around and taking pictures of old bridges and some ruins. An unfortunate storm had made several of the longer trails inaccessible but what we saw was great. Plenty of parking too!

Having visited this area many times in the past, I took a friend who had never been before. It was a hot, sunny day and we were looking forward to a pleasant walk under the trees. Having paid for admission and been duly given a site map, we selected the River walk, however, within a few minutes we began to encounter blocks on this path and diversion signs. It became clear that there were several places where erosion had taken place and paths were having to be restored. As a result, we had to find a different way back and ended up getting lost. What was intended to be a refreshing walk under the trees turned out to be an exhausting experience leaving us hot and disappointed. What we could not understand was that we had been given our copy of the map on entrance without any comments to warn us that at least one of the walks was no longer possible. Had this happened we could have planned a different walk and had a more enjoyable experience. Having returned to the car park at last, we looked forward to having a cool drink or ice cream under one of the trees and so approached a van which was advertising refreshments with a very large replica of an ice cream cone nearby - however, even though the van was open, we were unable to find anyone to serve us. Some nearby workmen informed us that they 'had been there', however after waiting for some time, we were forced to leave without anything, and eventually managed to find some refreshment in Dundrum on the way home. The car park was well filled and it was incredible to see such a lack of facilities at such a famous site.
