Camping

Choose the spot that’s right for you!

We are the only campsite on Lake Faaker See to have been awarded the Carinthian Quality Seal!

Ours is a beautifully maintained, natural campsite, with plenty of shaded areas under pine trees as well as sunny spots- the choice is yours! All of our 140 pitches are drained and sanded for your convenience. What makes our campsite so special is the wonderfully spacious sunbathing area (6,000 m2) directly at the lake, combined with a beautiful pebble beach and plenty of space for everyone.  

We also have a pier and a jetty from where we proudly fly our flag, making our campsite easy to recognise even from the water. And when the sun sets in the evening, the view from our restaurant terrace or one of the lakeside benches is simply breath-taking! The perfect way to relax and leave the daily grind far, far behind!

The famous waters of Lake Faak (Faaker See) with their turquoise-blue hue is more reminiscent of the Caribbean than of Austria. During the summer, the lake reaches temperatures of up to 28°C and the water is clean enough to drink. The range of sports facilities and daytrip destinations in the area is huge- we will be pleased to advise you!

During July and August, we offer free-of-charge programmes for children (petting zoo, children's cinema etc.) and adults. The weekly campfire at the lake complete the programme.

Tell your friends and acquaintances that they are welcome to come and see you at the campsite between 9AM and 8PM. Please note that visitors must register in the site office and pay for a day or half-day ticket.

Our campground is open from 1 May until 20 September 2020. We are looking forward to welcoming you!

Our restaurant also has its own playroom with a sliding door. The terrace and the restaurant are large enough to accomodate both families with young kids and guests without children, without getting in each other's way.

Your dog will have a good time here, resting in the half-shade next to your caravan, RV or mobile home and looking forward to his next walk with you. We also have a dog shower – great for cooling down or cleaning up your dog after a particularly vigorous walking session.

Beautiful walking routes are located in the immediate vicinity of the campground (2 minute-walk), and a 10-minute walk will take you to a brook running through the forest where your dog can cool down.

Please note that, in the interest of safety, dogs are not permitted to use the sunbathing area and that dogs are banned by law from swimming in the lake. Also it is not permitted to stay with your dog in the first line of our pitches. With pleasure you can stay with your dog in the restaurant and on the rest of the camp ground.

Our sites are located either in the sun, in the half-shade or full shade. You are welcome to book a tent site with us, but please note that we do not accept bookings for specific site numbers! The advantage for you is that you are free to stay on a particular tent site for as long as you like, without ever having to move. We are of course happy to help with selecting the site that is right for you, taking into account your wishes and requirements. We will do everything we can to ensure that you are next to family or friends. Our 6,000m2 sunbathing lawn remains unobstructed at all times, which means that all our guests are free to enjoy fantastic views of the lake, not just those in the first row.

Fun and games for the whole family!

During the months of July and August, we offer our guests a versatile animation programme that has something for everyone.

If you prefer to be left in peace, don't worry – our animators are unobtrusive and won't disturb you.

Also try our multi-faceted weekend programme!

Every week, we host a petting zoo with bunnies, guinea pigs, piglets, mini cows, chickens, ducks and much more. Great fun – not just for the kids! Our weekly S.U.P (Stand-up-Paddling) courses are also highly popular. For relaxation, there is free Yoga and Yogilates directly on the lake – a wonderfully calming setting! For children from the age of 3, there is arts and craft as well as face-painting in our children's room once a week. Once a week, you have the option of joining Barbara, our hiking guide, who will show you the most beautiful hiking routes in the region. Even better – the hikes start directly here at the campsite! Barbara also knows all there is to know about wild plants and has plenty of stories to share about Carinthian wildlife. If you enjoy fishing, join our fishing guide Ingo on one of his guided trips to all the best fishing spots on the lake! To grill your catch, use your own BBQ or one of our four BBQ areas. Every Friday, a free fishing course for children and youngsters takes place on the swimming dock, part of the range of activities offered by the Erlebnis Card that the region provides free of charge. We are happy to issue your Erlebnis Card in our office. In cooperation with our cycling partner, the Rosentaler Hof, we also offer a guided cycling tour (fee applies) from our campsite to the Rosental valley as well as an Alpine-Adriatic tour to Italy and Slovenia, including rental bikes.

We are Carinthia's camping pioneers!

Our campsite was founded in 1948 by our paternal grandparents, Hans and Waltraud Gruber, and was the first of its kind in Carinthia.

Hans Gruber had the ground-breaking idea when strolling along the deserted shores of Lake Faak and shortly afterwards set up the first professionally run campsite in Carinthia on what was then considered a worthless stretch of lake shore.

His daughter Claudia Skrube and her husband Klaus eventually took over the business and continued to run it with the same passion and commitment.

In May 2014, the family business passed into the hands of the third generation of the Gruber-Skrube family, and our passion for all things camping-related has not waned one little bit. The fourth generation is already staking its claim and also loves swimming and playing in the lake!

We are proud to be the only campsite on the shores of Lake Faak that was awarded the Carinthian Seal of Quality Control..qualitaet kaernten
