  • Very nice Campingground! The grounds are well maintained and very original. Take the campsite in the Park and not the trappings! It is very idyllic. We had the whole night and in the morning deer next to us, everywhere sparkled eyes. With the right place has views of the river and there is direct access. We were on the road a week and that was the most beautiful camping site of all. However, it is only something for lovers of nature, because it is not too much going on in the environment. The toilets are right and the shower is also, one should expect but no luxury. There are places with electricity and also without. Worth a visit in any case.
