Description of facilities

Update May 17. 2022. We do no longer provide indoor facilities such as kitchen and dining hall. The main campsite area is down by the lake where we only have restrooms and outdoor sinks with cold water. There are no showers at our campsite

The campsite at Þórisstaðir is divided into four areas. Area one is the largest area with parking for 50+ caravans, of which 32 parking spaces have electrical connections.

Area two has parking for about 25 carriages with 8 electrical connections and is well demarcated and intended for groups that also use the hall (sheepfold) which seats almost 200 people. You need to contact us to book a group site.

Area three is also a group site but only on weekends but individual sites can be booked there without a location, but no electricity is available in that area as yet.
Area four is intended for groups who do not need facilities other than access to the restrooms.

Facilities for emptying travel toilets are on site. A sandpit and a football pitch are one campsite. There are no shower facilities but there is a short distance to the nearest swimming pool at Hlaðir, which opens on 29 May.

In the area there is fishing in three lakes; Eyrarvatn, Þórisstaðavatn (Glammastaðavatn) and Geitabergsvatn.
One fishing permit is included when paying for two for two nights and this license applies to all three lakes. You can also buy individual fishing licenses when booking below.
Those who plan to fish in Þórisstaðavatn, can drive down to the water to launch light boats or kayaks.

Looking forward to welcoming you this summer!
