Why stay here ...
Stunning alpine views, a charming riverside setting and impeccable facilities really set this campsite apart. There’s large, well-spaced pitches, which are set in areas tailored to different types of visitor, and the friendly, helpful staff will go above and beyond to accommodate guests’ needs.
There is a huge amount to do in the area, popular for winter sports. After a day’s skiiing or exploration, the luxurious spa facilities can provide rest and relaxation. You’ll receive a card providing unlimited access to the local outdoor pools, as well as unlimited rides on the cable car in Lofer, to discover the surroundings at your leisure.
Discounts for local attractions such as whitewater rafting and canyoning are offered by the site, while those looking for some culture shouldn’t miss the medieval and baroque buildings of Salzberg. The Gorges of the Saalachtal Valley and the impressive Lamprecht's Cave are also well worth a trip.
In high season, use the free summer Salzburger Saalachtal card to enjoy a cable car ride to explore the Loferer Almenwelt and discount off many local attractions.

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.
Response from the Club:
Thank you for your review of this lovely site ,for your information the site no longer accepts Acsi cards for 2020 but has a long stay offer at various times during the low season with the Club.
