Directly on Lake Balaton in Hungary lies Pelso Camping, a large campsite with shaded camping pitches. From the camping grounds, you have a wonderful view of the lake and the Tihany peninsula. Choose your camping pitch or rental accommodation directly on the water and enjoy the fine view.

Pelso Camping is a four-star camping site, but this is according to Hungarian standards. And although investments have been made in new mobile homes, the facilities are somewhat lacking for the touring campers. The camping pitches are shady and neatly separated by hedges, but they are not big and the drainage doesn't always work well. A lot of the sanitary facilities have been renovated in recent years, but the work has not yet been completed in some places.

Warm water

Pelso Camping is situated on Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe and an important tourist attraction. The camping site can be found on the northern shore of the lake and has its own grassy bank across the entire length of the camping grounds. Because Lake Balaton has an average depth of just three metres, the water is pleasantly warm in the summer and is, therefore, also highly suitable for children to swim in. 

Swimming pool and natural pool

Pelso Camping has all sorts of facilities in and on the lake. For example, there are water slides into the lake, goals and basketball nets in the water, as well as a floating playground with play equipment on the water.

Pelso Camping also has a heated outdoor swimming pool with a water slide. The swimming pool and the lake form a varied water park. On the lake, you can go fishing, sailing and windsurfing, but motorboats are prohibited on Lake Batalon.

Peggy, on this campsite in June 2017


Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Sanitäranlagen dreckig und kaputt. Campingplatz mit viel Dreck und Müll.
Personal überfordert und unorganisiert.
Mussten Parzelle selbst reinigen. Stellplatz der gebuchten Kategorie stand bei Anreise nicht zur Verfügung. Campingplatz überhaupt nicht empfehlenswert

Tom, on this campsite in June 2016


Travelling party: Couple

Das untere Sanitärhaus war noch nicht fertig. Erst gegen Ende unseres Urlaubs konnte man wenigstens die Toiletten benutzen. Da ich etwas gehbehindert bin war es manchmal eine Qual bis zum oberen Sanitärhaus zum Duschen zugehen, weil die 9 Duschen im unteren Haus noch nicht funktionierten.

Reaction from the campsite February 22, 2017

Sehr geehrter Tom,
Erstmal, danke für das Feedback!
Wegen der Änderung der Eigentumsverhältnisse und der Frühlingsregen worden die Entwicklungen nicht rechtzeitig abgeschlossen. Leider haben Sie noch das gespürt.

Aber jetzt alles wieder normal sind, und wir sind stolz darauf, wie unser Kempingplatz entwickelt.

Wir entschuldigen uns für die Unannehmlichkeiten und hoffen, dich bald bei uns begrüßen zu dürfen!

Mit freundlichen Grüssen,
Pelso Camping Team
