A fantastic campsite. We enjoyed this quit, beautiful campsite with very friendly and helpful owners. We would very definitely go back to this campsite again.

Big pitches on a very well maintained site, next to a lake. Quiet and peaceful. Mixture of hard standing, grass pitches and huts.

An excellent site. Very modern with good facilities. Next to and overlooking the lake. Good range of information on what to do locally. Many hiking and cycling routes in the area - some starting from the site. Routes are well signed. Cesis, the nearest town, is rather limited but does have supermarkets.

Travelling party: Seniors

Fabulous site in a great location. Some of the pitches have their own decking with picnic table & BBQ. Excellent toilet & laundry facilities. BBQ'S around the site that you can use and a plentiful supply of free wood. Free wifi with good coverage.
Site owner very friendly and helpful and speaks good English. Lots of information available on surrounding area - plenty to do and see.
Only intended stopping for one night but stayed for three and were sorry to leave! Will definitely return if in this area.

A fantastic campsite with a lovely location, and warm welcoming staff. Several pitches have their own large deck with bbq and free wood. Lots of great cycle tracks from the site. Small shop nearby which has sale prices as the supermarkets in town. Well worth a detour to stay there, we will be back!

Absolutely gorgeous spot! Owners friendly and accommodating; close to Cecis attractions, and a magnificent bike ride around the lake on bikes rented from the campsite. Highly recommended!

This is a fantastic campsite with decked pitches where you are provided with outdoor table, benches and barbecue facilities. You can take hard standing or grass pitches as you like but all have access to a well equipped kitchen area including fridge / freezer and cooker. The lake is beautiful, the campsite is tranquil, the owners are friendly and very helpful. Cesis is a good walk away but is worth the effort as is a lovely town with a great church tower to climb and a wonderful park to picnic in. We would very definitely go back to this campsite again.
