In 2008, Wester Bonnyton Caravan and Camping Park received its current license from Aberdeenshire Council to host 69 static caravans and 8 touring pitches for 12 months of the year.

In 2011, Wester Bonnyton Resources, which owns and manages the caravan park, was registered as a private limited company.
