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.

Easter Alps Trip

Grubhof
Fantastic site for walks and Climbing including Via Ferrata, you can literally walk off the site and begin hill walking and its' suitable for all abilities. But if you and your family is of the mindset that Disney World is better than Neuschwanstein Castle, this site or lifestyle of camper van and motor homing might not be for you. Kayaking is possible using the river along side the site. The staff at reception are friendly and helpful and were able to give me a contact number for a local lady who is a mountaineering instructor and a mountain rescue team member, this could also be useful if I didn't listen to her properly during the climbing I did with her. She was very knowledgeable and got me onto the hidden routes close by at a resonable cost. Winter will bring guaranteed ish' snow and summer will bring sunlight and warmth at this site. The facilities are immaculate and the site also offers a bar and caffe. The electric hook up is metered, but never used any as my Camper Van never needs plugging in, unless the sun forgets to rise for more than a couple of hours a day (like Scotland or Scandinavian countries) and then my MB Sprinter turns into a Tiger Tank from the Second World War and 30 minutes of engine cycle is required to cook up some battery power. This off sets my green solar making power and makes it into a carbon deficit just like my V6 3.0L Diesel MB engine should be. Moving on, there are plenty of supermarkets near by and a fancy cake shop which could help if your family is not for walking or any other outdoor activity minded. All the pitches are reasonably sized and come complete with water, hook up and a gray water drain for caravan owners. So definitely worth a stay as a part of your bigger Austrian European Alps Trip. So, in a nut shell would I recommend this site and worthy of a Award by the CAMC, then YES' but I would also Award some other Sites I have visited in Corsica, France, Italy and so on. I think the CAMC have awarded Sexten in the past and I would recommend that one as well if your thinking of visiting the Dolomites.

best site!

Grubhof
Exceptional site with great facilities. Stayed on the less formal camping area down by the river for 4 nights in June 2022 - had plenty room and easy access to electricity. Toilets and all facilities were modern, clean and in excellent condition. Beautiful setting - situated between two lovely villages with restaurants and a selection of supermarkets. Great restaurant on site. Lots of walking in the area - would recommend taking the chairlift in Lofer (Almbahn) up to the skiing area - lots of walking paths at the top and restaurants up there and good paths down or up to Lofer if you are feeling in need of more exercise. Bus to Salzburg just outside site. Dog allowed on certain pitches and good to cool off in the river - also a dog shower at site.

WOW! Superb Site

Grubhof
Having read the reviews prior to booking, well it has certainly lived up to expectations. Very warm welcome from reception and the booking process was so easy. Be aware that you must pay extra for dogs which was 3 euros each, plus green tax plus tourist tax. Huge fully serviced pitch which you are obliged to set up in a certain way, ably advised by the pitch master. As has been said, the site is segregated into areas allowing dogs or not etc. We had dinner on our first night and the food was delicious and again, we were made very welcome with our 2 dogs. Lovely river walk and watching the white water canoeing is really amazing. Reception has lots of information regarding local area. Sanitary facilities are absolutely brilliant with showers like small wet rooms and plenty of toilets for everyone. Looking forward to exploring further during our stay.

Excellent site

Grubhof
This is one of the best sites we have visited. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The pitches are a good size and are fully serviced. The site is divided into areas for people with dogs, families or couples. Other sites should follow this layout. The new sanitary facilities are exceptional and the large family bathrooms are luxury with a stunning view of the mountains while you shower. Good access for cycling routes direct from the site. Easy walking distance to Lofer or St Martin. The Saalachter card gives you free use of the cable cars in Lofer, the swimming pool in Lofer and the gorges. Even when the site is busy it is still very quiet and relaxing. Definitely a 5 star camping experience.

Probably One of the Best Sites in Europe

Grubhof

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.
