Travelling party: Seniors

The site has not changed since my visit 2 years ago. The free WiFi and free use of laundry are appreciated, but the showers still lack any privacy. The Reception was unhelpful, allocating a numbered pitch by the river, although several better places remained unoccupied.

Excellent site with all facilities. Good Wi-Fi. Large flat pitches. Very quiet. Limited hours on reception but park up and pay next day (need to phone for code to toilet block). Free laundry facilities. Highly recommended.

Travelling party: Seniors

A large site with new hard-standing pitches alongside the river, as well as a gravel area with some statics. Short walk into Gallivare, 'the mining capital of Europe' and the northern terminus of the Inland Railway, with shops and places to eat. .
Free WiFi worked well. Also appreciated free use of the laundry room with washer and drier, bookable at Reception.
Very good kitchen and dining facilities with cookers, etc.
My only criticism is the lack of privacy in the showers.There is a large changing room and a few small cubicles with only a curtain - and nowhere secure to leave belongings.

Travelling party: Single

Leider in der Wintersaison keine Wohnmobile und keine Wohnwagen. Nur Vermietung von Hütten. Wurde tatsächlich abends für eine Übernachtung abgewiesen. Paar Kilometer weiter, im Skigebiet Dondret, dafür herzlich aufgenommen.

Overnattet på campingen for gjennomreise. Det er ingen vakter på campingen. Det var festing og bråk til klokken 4 på natten. Det synes jeg var meget negativt. Det skulle ha vært noen som har oppsyn også om natten.
