On the outskirts of the city of Salzburg lies Nord-Sam, a well-maintained and cheerful four-star camping site with lots of green, a beautiful swimming pool and a good connection (bike path and bus stop) to Salzburg. Nord-Sam is a truly wonderful base for visiting this classic, atmospheric city. Salzburg is full of history, if for no other reason than it is where Mozart was born and gave his concerts. The Salzburg-Salzkammergut region is ideal for relaxing cycling and hiking tours.
Four-star camping site
The reception building is built in a traditional style with different floors. Downstairs you will find the sanitary facilities and the kitchen, on the first floor is the restaurant with terrace, the reception and the shop. Everything here is clean and well organised. Due to its favourable location vis-à-vis Salzburg, Nord-Sam is not the cheapest camping site in the country. But speaking of this nearby tourist attraction: the camping site offers excursions to Salzburg.
Sun and shade
The pitches on this little campground are small but well maintained. They have good grass surfaces and are demarcated by carefully pruned bushes. In the months before and after the July-August period, you camp with a bit more space and have more privacy. There are a lot of trees, so many pitches are wonderfully shaded. The sanitary facilities at Camping Nord-Sam are clean and stylish.
Pleasant swimming pool
The swimming pool (limited hours: from 9-12 and from 14-19:00) is heated and well maintained. Around the pool you will find some loungers and sun umbrellas. The whole area is surrounded by walls, beautifully tiled with blue and white mosaics. Three hundred metres from the camping site you will find a large supermarket, a butcher and a pizzeria.

We were camping out during September 2014
We thought we get a nice, quality place - a little disappointed the situation of children's playground
Total conditions showers were good and services, but we are more sites and we paid less.
General impression - fine for one night lodging
The option to get to Salzburg via bus comes to camping - very good
Well-cared for camping with easy access to Salzburg centrum. Nice pitched though not always flat. Nice pool for cooling off on a hot day. Toilets and showers very well maintained. Easy access to Spar grocery just 150 meters away. Would definitely stay again
The family owners of Camping Nord-Sam have obviously gone to some effort to create this attractive site on the outskirts of Salzburg.
Reception seemed well organized, and the staff helpful and friendly. Even though the site was closed when we arrived, we were greeted, shown to a pitch and asked to check in later.
Sunbeds were available at the good sized pool, which was lit at night, and there was also a play park for children.
Bus tickets could be purchased from reception, and we were given a leaflet when checking in detailing how to use public transport to travel into Salzburg, along with prices and a timetable.
The sanitary block had plenty of showers, but perhaps a little short of WC cubicles, of which there were only 4 serving a site with 100 touring pitches. Paper was provided in the cubicles, and the wash basins had soap and paper towels. The facilities were clean, although at least one of the seats was cracked.
Pitches were mainly gravel and soil, though there was grass in places, and they were clearly marked out by hedges and trees. Some of the pitches were narrow, which made maneuvering our van into it a little difficult, as the roadway was also narrow with posts limiting the turning circle. Some pitches were better than others in this respect.
A bus stop, supermarket, tabak, and an excellent Pizzeria (turn right out of the campsite, walk 200 metres and it's called "D&S" on Langmoosweg, which we can heartily recommend for quality, price and service) were all within close walking distance of the site, and the reception also sold essential items.
Unfortunately, very expensive per night, we didn't consider the site to be good value for money, despite the location and facilities, and were disappointed to find that wifi (which was very poor on our pitch) was an additional €3 on top. At these prices we would not visit the campsite again, but it was, however, a pleasant stay.
To travel to Salzburg, a ticket allowing 24 hours of public transport can be purchased for €3,40 (€1,70 for children) from reception. Other types of ticket are available, but this one suited our purpose. Turning left out of the campsite, the "Mauermannstraße" bus stop was just a few minutes walk away, and from here we took a number 23 bus to "Hauptbahnhof", where we switched to a bus taking us to "Makartplatz" (any bus going to "Zentrum" would have taken us where we needed to go).
Excellent base for visiting Salzburg. The pool is small and camping quite busy and not so quiet as the rest of
Austria camps but Salzburg is a very touristy town, and so it is understandable a little crowd. The bathrooms are comfortable and with ample hot water. All in all I would recommend it. A bit expensive.
3 km away from the city? No, 3 km away from the train-station, where the only bus leading towards the camping stops! After that you have to take another bus that takes you to the center of the city. Very poor sanitary facilities for the number of campers, you will find just one sanitary group that is always full and not very clean. Unjustified high price/night, road works that woke you up with the noise of heavy machines at 7 in the morning, very poor lights on the alleys of the camping, small pool only for children. You can have at the reception "restaurant" a cup of coffee in the morning that has a higher price than in the center of the city! Don't expect a good coffee. If you came with a tent it's even worse, 2 areas allocated for tents where they stuck everybody no matter the size of your tent, so no privacy and no place to sit in front of your tent, at night bring a flashlight if you don't want to get in your neighbour's tent (no lights).
Perfect for exploring Salzburg - just off the A1 motorway. Spar supermarket and Pizza Restaurant nearby as well as bus stop into the city centre. Excellent English spoken. Sanitary facilities are very clean.
This site is convenient fro visiting Salzburg.we rode in on good cycle track to the centre which is 5km away. The pitches are small for motorhome and most have shade which was beneficial even in September. The pool was quiet and very adequate for our needs. Not sure how busy it would be in high season. Facilities were clean and good standard. There is a charge for WiFi but it is reliable.
We had made a reservation yesterday and the reservation system said that the resevation was OK. But when we came to the campsite at 5 PM, they had given our reserved pitch to someone else. While travelling 600 kilometres from Kroatia, the campsite had sent us *an email* that we of course haven't received when travelling whole the day. The email said that the reservation was only valid until 4 PM. The campsite crew was arrogant when we arrived and we didn't get any pitch. Very unpleasant and rare experience. Never again!
Very good for motorhomers for cycling into Salzburg along path. Toilets & Showers modern and clean, pitches hedged off but rather small. Swimming Pool lovely ! Will use again to visit Salzburg.
Campsite is located in an urban area on the edge of the city but very good access to/from the motorway. It is very convenient for access to the city as the bus stops outside the site.
The site is compact, has a lot of tree cover and pitches are separated by some hedging. The water and waste points are central only. The toilet/shower block is recently renovated and spotlessly clean. the site is well maintained and the owners are friendly and helpful. Wifi was weak.
The site has a small shop and fresh bread can be ordered daily. It does not have a restaurant but there is a pizza restaurant nearby - we were not keen on the look at first but when we tried it the food and the service was really good. Try it.
As it is in an urban location it is quiet and no walks or places of interest nearby. There is a local supermarket. This is in a great location for exploring Salzburg and nearby or for an overnight stop. Recommended.
