Where and how can I camp?

The campsite is divided into 23 zones, each of which is marked by a capital letter (A, B, C, etc.). Each zone contains limited number of sites. Pitches are neither marked out nor labelled.

Zones A, B, C, D, E, F, and H are for electric hook-up only. Vehicles cannot enter zones S, T, U, V and X.

Due to fire prevention regulations, visitors are required to keep distance between camping units. Space between single tents must be at least 3 m (10 ft), but more density is allowed for groups. Motorhomes, camper vans, trailers, etc. must keep at least 4 m (13 ft) between units.

Please note that zones may be sold out, even if currently empty. It is therefore extremely important to register online prior to camping.
