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.

Excellent site

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

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.

Perfect? Almost.

Nothing to add about the site - A1 rated in every way; only negative at all was the fact that our pitch was a bit grass-bare but it was near the end of the season when we stayed there in late August. Huge amount to do in this beatiful area for all the family and luckily I hadn't researched the moutain biking possibilities beforehand or my family would never have seen me all week. The Saalacher Card which was free was an excellent bonus, making for free almost daily trips to the outdoor pools at Lofer and Unken (have flip-flops or crocs to hand for the latter - the tiling is viscious on the soles of the feet!) and cable car rides, plus the gorges are worth a visit as are the caves (small discount with the card). Days out - Salzburg, Berchtesgaden, Kitzbuhel and Werfen (castle as featured in Sound of Music, Where Eagles Dare and Call of Duty Black Ops II) all easy drives. Everything in this area is picturesque. Like mountain scenery, go there.

Fantastic Site

Not much more to add to previous comments. We stayed for 13 nights (July/August 2016) and had a great time. Site facilities are excellent; on site restaurant is good; scenery is outstanding; access to Lofer, Salzburg and mountains is easy; and overall holiday was fantastic. Made full use of the free access to the local pool and cable car, as well as discounts for attractions (including whitewater rafting, canyoning, etc.). Definitely worth the drive - Salzburg, Innsbruck, Berchtesgaden all within travelling distance once you're here.

Stunning scenery

Camping Grubhof is a nice campsite in a wonderful location with stunning scenery.  The guest card is great as it allows unlimited use of the cable car in Lofer leading to wonderful walks. A visit to the gorges is also worthwhile.  Great cycling and walking paths direct from the site.   Fresh eggs available from the local farm on the cycle path over the bridge.  Plenty places to visit from the site. Pitches are fine but the main space is in front of your caravan, you are still quite close to your neighbours.  Loved the way the site is organised with specific sections for families, couples and dog owners. Toilet block 2 near Eschenweg area has nice clean toilets but shower cubicles are very small.  We stayed for 5 nights but could have stayed longer and will definitely return.
