Returning to the campsite, the comments I made 2 years ago still apply The laundry has 2 new coin-op washing machines and a drier, but the WC/shower block is overdue for refurbishment. The grass camping area is boggy when wet, though the hedged pitches around Reception are firm. As well as the northernmost Lidl in the world, the town has an excellentr Lapland Food Shop (Kermainen) - buy a 6-pack of their cream of reindeer soup!
A short walk across the river bridge to the town centre. Sodankyla has plenty of shops (with the world's northernmost Lidl) and places to eat, as well as riverside walks and a 17thC wooden church,
The spacious campsite has individual hedged pitches near Reception, with more places down on the open field nearer to the services.
There is free use of a good kitchen with cooker and microwave, as well as showers with private cubicles. Free reliable WiFi works only on a few pitches by Reception.
Laundry has washers, plus free drier.
With an end-of-season price reduction, the site comes as a welcome break on the north-south route above the Arctic Circle.
The only negative is a lack of security, with a public road running through the site and Reception only staffed for an hour each evening at this time of year.
