Gern-Campinghof Salem is situated on the outskirts of the village of Salem, less than ten km from Lake Constance. This peaceful four-star camping site with eco-label is managed by the Gern family. It is a true family camping site with an amiable, hospitable atmosphere. Children are allowed to help look after the animals in the animal enclosure.
For touring campers
The camping site consists of level grassy fields along straight cul-de-sacs. To compensate for the difference in height of the slightly sloping landscape, some terraces have been laid out. Standing between the camping pitches are deciduous trees and tall hedges, although the vegetation offers little shade in summer. The camping site is neatly laid out and is well maintained. It consists mainly of touring pitches, but there are 25 permanent pitches as well. In addition, there are two mobile homes and one trekker hut available for rent.
Gern-Campinghof Salem is a true family camping site. It is especially popular with families during the peak season. In low season it is mostly frequented by senior citizens. There is lots to do for small children. In addition to an outdoor playground, there is an indoor playground and a recreation area. However, the most popular attraction of this camping site is the animal enclosure with ponies, horses, rabbits, goats and chickens.
The most beautiful lake
At a distance of some eight hundred metres from the camping site lies the Schloßsee, a beautiful lake which is great for swimming. A ten minute walk through the fields will get you there. The water is clear and always a few degrees warmer than Lake Constance. Swim to Robinson island, or walk there by crossing the bridge. There are clean pebble beaches (bring your aqua shoes!) and beautiful lawns with ample shade.

Worst campsite we have ever been to and we have been to at least 10 different ones in Germany alone. Staff members here are very unprofessional and beyond rude dog haters. Needless to say, our dog is a medium size, friendly and playful puppy, never harmed enyone! We were treated as criminals for letting her play fetch with a tenniss ball. Moreover, they don’t serve coffee before 9:00 a.m, even though all campsite is up and it gets pretty noisy way before 7:00. You’re not allowed to drive in or out of the site 12:30-15:30 during the day time. The smell coming out of the bathrooms is simply vile. The is not a single trash can anywhere, so you pretty much have no choice but to put your trash in the trunk of your car, which is totally discussing to say the least...
To cut the story short, if you’re looking for a nice, dog friendly campsite with nice views and good service stay away from this place!
This campsite is excellent, we stayed 2 nights, should have stayed longer. Would give it 10 out of 10 for friendliness, service, location, etc. Toilets were immaculate, owner very friendly to all visitors. Schlobsee is well worth a visit. THANK YOU...P.S lovely coffee in Salem
This is a good site for visiting Lake Constance, it is about 9km from the Lake. Cycling in this area is very good with plenty of cycle paths.The campsite has a restauarant and bar which is very reasonable. A number of the sites are sloping, so levelling ramps would be required
Pleasant site but pitches felt cramped together; really helpful staff who spoke english; toilet facilities good; did not use restaurant
