Stayed here on the October Bank Holiday weekend and this is a beautiful campsite.  It is on the edge of Gortin Glen Forest Park and within the grounds of Glenpark Estate.  For anyone travelling to the park, use Gortin Glen Forest or the Ulster History Museum as your target point on your Sat Nav.  The campsite is on the site of the old history museum so it wont recognise Glenpark or at least mine didn't.  The other thing to note is that is it easier to go into Omagh and approach from that direction, it is best avoiding the narrow roads that your sat nav wants to take you through in deepest darkest Tyrone.
The site is small, 24 pitches in total, all demarked by a wooden fence.  All pitches have a seperate water connection, power post but no drainage point.  Not a big deal as the campsite is compact surrounding the facilities block so it isn't a big walk to the clearly marked chemical point or the grey water drain. didn't see a service point for campervans so that may be an issue.  The toilets and showers were immaculate and several visits by the service staff from the nearby hotel kept them in excellent condition. There is a marked walk to the hotel and park from the campsite which includes a farm shop. They were themed for Halloween and I believe they are converting now to a Christmas Theme. 
Only downside was TV reception and internet if that's important. Surrounded by so many trees, it was impossible to get a proper signal so it meant more walking through Gortin Glen forest trails...!

Would I go back - absolutely.  I thought it was good value at 25GBP per night for what can only be described as one of the quietest nights sleep I have experienced in a long while.
