Deze camping lijkt wel op een oude legerkazerne. Typisch Zweeds, allemaal op- en aan elkaar staan. Je kunt het eten bij elkaar van het bord kijken. Een camping om vooral niet voor te remmen! De \"stad\" Arvidsjaur is net als veel andere steden in het Noorden: heel lelijk en heeft niets te bieden. Gelukkig ben je binnen vijf minuten weer in niemandsland en struikel je over de rendieren op de \"snelweg\" naar het Noorden.

A large but chaotic camping site with no real highlights. The general feeling you get from this place is that it\'s ugly and not very celan. The service buidings look like they were from another era.
The pitch we were assigned had a lot of cigarette buts, sharp nails and small pieces of trash. The sink with drinking water was full of trash and cigarettes as well which was rather disguisting. The staff at the reception was not exactly welcoming and though we were supposed to be offered free coffee and biscuits noone offered us anything.
The site boasts of free wifi but in fact it\'s not working at all. There\'s not much to do around. Addmitedly there is a pool table, a large tv and something looking like a gym in the building where the reception is but since all information is in Swedish and the staff is not very helpful we were discuraged from having it a go. Stay there if you have to, but otherwise, try something else.

Grote camping, vooral geschikt als doortrekcamping. Sfeerloze 'parkeer'plaatsen, sanitair is in orde. Gratis Wifi. Camping ligt aan de rand van de stad, goede voorzieningen op korte afstand.

Ausgedehntes, ebenes Gelände am Ortsrand in ruhiger Lage an einem See; zur Ortsmitte mit Geschäften und Lokalen ca. 20 Minuten Fußweg. Gepflegte Anlage, komfortables und sauberes Sanitär. Empfehlenswert.

An extensive campsite with excellent facilities, including sports courts. Free WiFi and satellite TV. Cafe offered free coffee & biscuits on arrival. Pitches would feel cramped when busy.

Alleraardigtst personeel zeer behulpzaam, de koffie staat klaar en is gratis. Prachtige camping, waar je kan er uit plaatsen kiezen met stroom en zonder stroom. Met stroom sta je op gras wat perfect is. Zonder stroom sta je in genummerde plaatsen op het zand doordat er in de winter sneeuw wordt weggeschoven en het gras geen tijd krijgt om te groeien. Verder een mooie stad met veel winkels en natuurschoon.

Prima camping met vriendelijk servicegericht personeel. Sauna, zwembad en internet zijn inclusief, maar stroom niet.

Stellflächen wie Bussbahnhof. Der Rest war empfehlenswert und machte einen guten Eindruck. Atmosphärisch nicht jedermanns Geschmack.
