I had seen many positive reviews for this site and it did not disappoint on any level. Approaching from Zell am See the entrance is well signposted on the right just on the outskirts of Lofer. Stop before the barrier and check in at reception where the staff speak excellent English. They also provide you with lots of local information.
We were given a site plan and allowed to select a pitch from a choice of five. The majority of pitches are at least 120sq m. There\'s also a lot of space between the rows. It is by far the least packed continental campsite I have visited. There is power, water and drainage on every pitch and a separate area for tents. There are stunning views from most pitches. Wifi coverage and speed are good but charged extra. Guests with dogs are pitched in specific rows.
We arrived on a Thursday at the beginning of June which we didn\'t think would be busy. We had not considered the German school holidays. Schools in Bavaria get a week off for Whitsun but those in Baden Württemberg get two weeks. This resulted in caravans pouring in during Friday evening and Saturday. On Saturday all the roads from Germany where at a standstill. By Sunday the site was full but the facilities coped well.
Our comfort pitch gave us access to the family bathrooms. These included toilet, wash basin and walk in shower. They were big enough for a family of 4 and superbly fitted out.
We ate in the restaurant twice. The quality of the food and service was excellent.
A number of walks start near the site and dozens more nearby. Saltzburg and Berchtesgaden are a 50 minute drive away. We went up the cable car from Lofer which takes you to a beautiful plateau with a good choice of walks and Alms. The views are stunning. Lofer is a lovely little town with several restaurants and bars. There are several supermarkets.
The site accepts the ACSI CC card up until the beginning of June so we paid full price but we felt we got value for money.
We saw more British vans on this site than any other we stayed on in Austria. Presumably this is because it can be booked via the caravan club.
This is probably the best site we have stayed on during or 25 years of touring because it has everything - large pitches, great views, superb sanitary facilities, good restaurant, peaceful, good walking. It\'s got it all.
Camp sites don't come much better than this. Pitches very spacious and one caravanner commented that the toilet facilities were better than he had at home! Easy 15 minute walk into Lofer for shops and restaurants etc. There is nothing to criticise except perhaps there could be more facilities for children.
The best site we stayed on in 3 weeks touring Europe. Toilets always spotless and facilities compared well with a good hotel. Lovely site by the river surrounded by the Alps which in a thunderstorm was spectacular. It is 25 miles from the Eagles Nest which was a memorable visit. Found a lovely village on the opposite side of the road unfortunately on our way home but would love to return.
We love this place!
Park Grubhof is an attractive campsite completely surrounded by mountains, and the fast flowing River Saalach flows along one edge of the site. There are three categories of pitch, at different prices, but all are large and well maintained. The XX-Large pitch, which we chose was gravelled with a grass area immediately behind it. You are not supposed to put tents on the grass on these pitches, but we did, as did a couple of other campers. The ground was fairly hard, so driving pegs in to the gravel required a hammer. The grassed area, on the other hand, was soft enough to hand drive the pegs in. The pitch was large enough for the van, a tarp, two pop up tents, a Base tent, and still have plenty of room for tables and chairs.
Each pitch had a hookup point and a water tap and were well marked.
Grubhof has two sanitary blocks, both heated and having showers, WCs, and dishwashing rooms. Showers are free and unlimited, and paper and soap is provided in the WCs. All rooms and cubicles have ample space and hooks to hang up clothes and wash bags.
The new sanitary block has a washing machine (€3) and a tumble dryer (€2), but didn't get the clothes particularly dry. There is, however, an excellent dry room to hang your clothes in. As well as WCs, this block also has 7 family sized shower rooms with wash basin and toilet. The doors to the family wash rooms require a key card (the same as the gate card provided at reception on arrival) to access.
The older sanitary block has a freezer for ice packs, but is also particularly useful for cooling your beer cans quickly when your fridge is broken!
WiFi is available, and was very good from our pitch. There is a charge, however. €4 for one day, or €9 for 3 days.
Adjoined to the new sanitary block is a games room with a large screen and pool table, and there is also a TV in the lobby area for kids to watch.
The reception is very efficiently run, and they already had our details on file from the last time we stayed, simplifying the checkin process. The staff that dealt with us spoke very good English. We were given a keycard, which worked the gate barrier (only needed for entry, not exit), and also some facilities in the washroom. We were also given a card which gave us free entry to a local gorge, swimming pool and cable car rides, as well as discounts on some other attractions.
There are 3 supermarkets not very far away in the town, but they all close at 18:00 on Saturday and are not open at all on Sunday. In addition, there is a small shop on site, selling a few essentials (such as fresh bread), as well as a bar and restaurant.
This is doubtless one of our favourite sites, with little to say against it, other than it is, of course, a tad expensive. It is an extremely comfortable campsite, even when the rain is tipping down! There are plenty of places to see in the surrounding area. We particularly enjoyed renting out a rowing boat for only €10 an hour on the Königssee, which is, perhaps, 30-40 minutes drive away.
Excellent site, superb situation, and sanitation, but note that the block nearest the office does not have showers, just family bathrooms ( plus all the other usual facilities.)Block 2 has 2 shower rooms which are more like wet rooms, with excellent drainage, the others are large and have individual floor cleaner/raclette, and block 3, whilst ok and clean has somewhat narrow shower units which someone very overweight would have difficulty getting into, and the used water runs from one shower cubicle into another. Good, marked , hard standing pitches with individual water, electricity and waste water, also each has an additional grassed area. Wifi pretty good, available throughout it seems , for 14 euros a week per device. Bus almost outside to Saltzburg cost of 16.40 return, interesting journey takes around 1 hour 15
The town band which plays in Lofer on Friday evening outdoors was well worth attending. 2 Supermarkets within easy cycling or walking distance. We found the quality of Spar in Lofer better than Billa, between St Martin and Lofer. Friendly welcome, informative and English spoken.
Very well organised site, restrictions on which way you can face a van or motorhome and how your car is parked, this all makes for a very tidy arrangement, highly recommended.
Soap, toilet paper and paper towels, all electronically operated, hair dryers available.
Internet point,with computer terminal in main building near telephone, free to use for anyone who does not have or want wifi facility.
Gym/fitness room and comfortable relaxing/TV room with electric sockets, pool table, sofas... Handy for the World Cup this week. One note is that if you get off the bus at the terminus in Salzburg the return bus is not necessarily at the same stop. For us the return stop for that particular service, was out of the limits of the bus station.
A lovely open campsite spread over a large are in a beautiful location by the river surounded by snow capped mountains. The village is within level off road cycling or walking distance. There is a retaurant and bar that supplies good value food and bread is available from the shop but other supplies are limited. The village has a lovely outdoor pool with slide and an unusual natural rapids run on a stream that runs through the pool area. Therd are skme typical bars and cafes in the village and there is a ski lift that runs during the summer to taks visitors half way up the burg in 8 seater gondelas.
One of the best sites we have stayed on. Fantastic location beside a river with numerous cycling and walking opportunities. If you like these then you will probably not use your car much. Can only describe the toilet facilities as first class. There are about 5 different blocks and all are excellent. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable about the area and things to do. Bus goes from outside the campsite to Saltsburg which is worth a visit, as is the thermal baths at Bad Reichenhall. The local villages have regular entertainment of a typically Austrian variety, and are within easy walks across a field or via the river walk. Supermarkets are available within 1 mile. The children on the site seemed to be having a great time in a well equipped play area, and for the adults there is a sauna and fitness room. There are different pitch sizes available, and the price varies accordingly. Pitches are also available for those without children/dogs. We will definitely go back to this site
