Campsites in Austria, Slovakia and Czech Republic

Karlovy Vary

Wolfgangsee Romantik Camping, St Gilgen, Austria
A gravel and grass site with marked pitches on the shores of the lake.  The site has a small shop with a good choice of bread and free wifi.  The sanitary facilities are plentiful and the showers are good and hot.  Cycle routes in both directions go from the site and there is plenty of walking too.

Campingplatz Paradise Garden, Kaumberg, Austria
A pleasant and quiet site in a rural position.  The site is grassy and has a cafe and bakery.  The sanitary facilities are newish and the showers are large and clean.  There is a 50c charge for hot water for washing up.  There is cycling and walking from the site.

Camping Levoca Dolina, Levoca, Slovak Republic
A terraced site on a steep hill which would be challenging, if not impossible, for large vans, although there are a couple of pitches that vans 6-7m could access.  Hook ups may be some distance away, even with our 35m of cable, we had to borrow extra from the site.  The facilities are clean but limited; the shower heads do not hook on to the wall and you have to hold them, the toilets had very little leg room, the showers had no doors, in the Slovak style and there is only one washing up sink in the kitchen area.  The site is the nearest to the lovely town of Levoca which is about 2km away; there is a footpath or cycle lane in to the town and there are other marked paths for walking and cycling from the site.  Very little English spoken by the owner and only a smattering of German.

Camping Hana, Veverska Bityska
A friendly and welcoming site with excellent English spoken.  The facilities are clean with hot water for 4 minute roomy showers with a token.  The ground is grassy but well drained.  The site is on the edge of a village and there are plenty of walking and cycling opportunities from the site and the owners will happily provide information.  Very popular with campers from the Netherlands.

Mini Camping, Karlovy Vary
An idyllic small, grassy site with 35 pitches and a pond.  The owner spoke German and Czech, but not English.  There are only two toilets per sex and one shower for everyone, which was excellent and had plenty of hot water, there are two washing up sinks, but no hot water at these.  The site is clean and homely.  A large shopping centre is nearby and there are buses in to the town or it is a 2km walk.
