You'll find the place illuminating if you're a foodie too, as the site's local town of Järpen is home to the eaterie Fäviken, named in 2012 as one of the world's 50 best restaurants and as one of the planet's top ten in 2012 (you'll be served a full 14 courses if you eat here, as well as appetisers). On site, the friendly team dishes up pizza, burgers, waffles and other light meals as well as tea and coffee to have in its café or on the little terrace.
also has canoe and rowing boat rental (handily as it's right on the lakeside shores), a big playground, a barbecue hut and a small communal kitchen with a washing-up area, a stove and a fridge. Board games are available at the café.
The well-stocked shop, open daily, sells daily basics like bread, milk and fresh eggs; souvenirs, ice cream, tobacco, magazines, fishing equipment and basics in its small chemist corner. Freshly-baked bread can also be ordered.
Other facilities include modern individual wetrooms with free hot showers, a laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer, and electric sockets to charge small devices. There's also limited wifi.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Activities of all sorts are all around , from wild swimming in summer to cross country skiing in the colder months. Events, festivals and flea markets run regularly in the surrounding towns.
Pack the hiking boots for some scenic walks in the nearby mountains and climb the Suljätten mountain for a picnic in a spectacular landscape – a camera will be very much needed here too... You could also hire a bike in reception and explore the Kallbygden; take a trip around the Juvuln Lake (60km), or stop by for a visit to the local caves and their ancient paintings.
Fishing is also popular in the area: just hire a rowing boat at the campsite and try your luck – you might even land your own dinner and sizzle it up smokily on the barbecue...?
