Schöner Platz, gute Lage für diverse Unternehmungen, idyllisches Rauschen von Wasserfall, saubere, komfortable Sanitäranlagen. Gerne wieder.

Visited this site in June this year. The site is well located but the grounds are quite shabby. I was impressed with the toilet and shower block which were great. The staff were very rude and most unhelpful, which made our stay on this site very short.

The site is well sign posted and easy to find across the river from the town. It's about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Meiringen so it's easy to access shops, post buses and trains. There is a small supermarket (Linde) about 2 minutes from the site where you can get camping gaz. There is a dedicated area for tents just outside the main building so it's a short walk to the shower/toilet areas. I was there in low season but I would imagine the area for tents soon becomes full in high season.

Ich finde es ungeheurlich und nicht gerade Gastfreundlich das di ACSI Card je nach gutdünken gerade nicht gültig ist. Zum Glück gibt es ja noch einen anderen Camping in Meiringen der um einiges Freundlicher ist. Betrifft Wochenende 15/16 September 2012.

Van drie weken gepland zijn wij na 5 dagen gevlucht. Wat een onverzorgde camping. Wasbakken vallen bijna van de muur, sanitair werd niet schoongehouden, kleding wassen nauwelijks te doen omdat er stapels met vieze kleren achtergelaten waren. Personeel humeurig, hond onvriendelijk, zwembad(tje) was leeg, vol vuil. Er waren gelukkig alternatieve genoeg in de omgeving. Niet aan te bevelen!
De omgeving is geweldig en daar is dan ook niks op aan te merken maar echt genieten van die omgeving vanaf een andere camping dat vergroot uw plezier.

Het receptie/toilet/douchegebouw ziet er aan de buitenkant niet erg luxe uit, de binnenkant verrast door vrij nieuwe en goede(gratis) douche en redelijk schone toiletten. De dame bij de receptie was erg vriendelijk. Mooie omgeving, met veel wandelmogelijkheden. Dorp ligt op ongeveer 20 min lopen van de camping. Brood en wat dagelijkse boodschappen zijn op de camping te koop.(niet goedkoop).

juni 2010. 3 weken gestaan, al eerder geweest in 2006, toen boven links gestaan. Nu rechts af op het lange stuk. Men was bezig met onderhoud per plaats. Daar komt per plek water en afvoer vertelde de Hollandse hulp. Vriendelijke ontvangst. Broodjes (op bestelling) 's morgens te halen. Sanitair schoon. Buitenkant oogt nog steeds niet na 4 jaar. Omgeving veel te zien. Passentocht, schlucht. Meiringen als stad met musea, wandelen in de omgeving, Axalp bij Brienz. Ballenberg. museum, Kienholz met houtsnijwerk. Veel info in de hal . Hebben het nu wel gezien. Komen wel naar Zwitserland weer, is onze stek, al jaren.
