Camping Neset is situated on a gently sloping, triangular promontory directly on the wide Otra River. You can be assured of an unspoiled view of the crystal clear water and the low mountains each second of the day. You can camp right at the water's edge, or alternatively slightly further up on the camping site. Adjacent to a spacious lawn is a special, hardened peninsula for campers. Swim a few laps, take a trip -in a steamboat- on the river, or go rafting. In the vicinity of Evje you will find quarries and a mineral park, where you are allowed to look for rocks or hammer them out yourself. An unique experience
Separate peninsula for campers
The well maintained camping site has a good grass surface. The trees here are few and far between, so you can enjoy the sun to the fullest! There are no demarcated pitches and you may therefore stand where you wish. Once you have found a nice spot, you will experience the peaceful atmosphere. Camper vans are allocated a partly paved peninsula with a strip of grass. You can also rent new and recently renovated trekker huts and bungalows.
There are three large ablution blocks. Everything is new or recently renovated. Special features: family bathrooms, sanitary facilities for children and for the disabled.
Rafting and a colossal bouncer
You can get straight into the water from many spots along the banks. There are two sandy beaches and a couple of boardwalks. When the water is not warm enough, you may want to go rafting. There is a rafting centre some 10 km away from the camping site. On the camping site you can take part in beach volley. There are play houses and a colossal bouncer for the little ones.

Superb! The best camping ever! Never seen the like! We enjoyed every minste of the stat. A must to visit!
Best site we have stopped in so far in Norway, clean and well laid out with spacious pitches by the waters edge. Staff are friendly and toilets and showers are well maintained.
The site is an easy drive from Kristiansand. The campsite looks exactly like the photograph (not always the case), it is on a small peninsula, on the east of the lake about 1.5km north of the small town of Byglandsfjord (which has a Coop general shop).
The staff are friendly, helpful and hospitable, creating a relaxed and happy atmosphere on the campsite.
We are in a motorhome and had a pitch on the lakeside, on level hard-standing, on a newly built area for about 24 vans.
There are 3 toilet blocks, we only used the one nearest our pitch, which seems relatively new. It is well equipped, with plenty of washing rooms with doors, soap and hot water. There are roomy showers. The facilities were kept clean and tidy.
There is a pleasant cycle ride alongside the far side of the lake and a short, steep (boots essential, poles recommended) hike to a viewpoint on the hill above the site.
Highly recommended, we saw people overnighting, or like us staying a few nights and in other cases people enjoying a longer stay.
