Orsa Camping is situated in the town of Orsa, which is predominantly known for its bear park, Orsa Björnpark. It forms an ideal base because of its location at Lake Orsasjön, a spur of the popular Siljan Lake. This part of Dalarna has much to offer the tourist: natural beauty and many attractions such as museums.
This large camping site is easy to reach from the E45; when you come from Mora, turn left at the first traffic circle and drive through the village, where road signs will send you in the right direction. You will be assisted by helpful staff members in the sleek and businesslike reception. The same building also houses a restaurant and a bowling alley. The spacious pitches (637 with electricity) are laid out along dirt roads and between trees. Most of the pitches offer a view of the lake.
A hut or a cottage?
The large camping site has a large number of holiday cottages in the shape of solid log cabins with all amenities, such as a private shower/toilet and fireplace. They are suitable for four to six persons. These cabins form their own neighbourhood on the camping site. You can also rent mobile homes. They have three bedrooms with two beds each, own shower/toilet and a fully equipped kitchen.
How to learn about bears
The unequalled attraction of Orsa is bear park Orsa Björnpark, some 16 km north of the camping site. The animals roam freely in nature on a gigantic, fenced-off terrain. Not only brown bears, but also wolves, eland, red deer, lynx and wolverines.

A vast and bureaucratic holiday park by Lake Orsa, 2 miles off E45 highway. In high season reservations are needed for a variety of pitches at different prices (see their complicated website). On the evening we arrived the site was quiet, except at the noisy Reception inside the bowling alley and bar. No sign of the \'helpful staff members in the sleek and businesslike reception\' described above. A young woman who was new to the job eventually allocated a numbered pitch (no choice of type or price was offered) - and no, we could not look round to choose our own place. The computer was in control.
Our pitch was squeezed in the centre of a row between two other vehicles, on impossibly soft wet grass. Reallocation involved a more senior member of staff, who gave us what turned out to be an even more muddy pitch, where the previous occupants had clearly become stuck in the mud, yet there seemed to be motorhome hard-standings in another area! As it was cold, dark and a long walk back to Reception, we finally parked on a gravel path within reach of the electricity and left next morning.
The facilities were all good and free WiFi worked well, but campers are obviously of very low priority in the low season. Compare our experience with the words on Orsa Camping’s website: ‘Be sure to choose a pitch that fits your caravan, motorhome or tent’. The pitches that we were offered should have been closed .
It\'s good that it is not so much people; the toilet is clean and I have very fun skiing. I recommend it for people that want peace and quiet. The staff is very friendly; they are helping us much.
