The campsite

On the north-eastern side of Nordkoster, within the nature reserve, is the only camping / tent site on the Koster Islands and here you can book a spot for your tent when it is open in summer. Otherwise it is not allowed to camp on the Koster Islands. See links to the nature reserve rules and national park rules in the menu under ABOUT KOSTER.
The campsite is located right by the sea. The ground is hilly, so small tents are preferable. There are no marked tent spots, but you pitch your tent where there is room.

  • This is a family campsite, young people without accompanied by adults are not allowed to camp with us.
  • We strive for peace and quiet and therefore do not accept therefore do not accept larger groups such as school classes, companies, sports clubs and the like during any part of the season.
  • The tent must be occupied during the entire stay by the person who made the reservation. The tent must not be empty at night.

You always have to book in advance!

The number of tent spots is limited and you must always book in advance. If you wish to visit us during the high season, w.27 - 30, you should book well in advance.
During high season you have to book at least 3 nights. This is to have a calmer experience and fewer arrivals and departures per day.

"You have to think as if you were camping in the wilderness except for our amenities"

The campsite

The surface of the campsite consists of grass and partly sand near the sea. A little further up, it is slightly hilly forest land. The smaller the tent, the easier it is to find a place to pitch your tent.  


This is not a place for the comfortable camper but rather for outdoor people who appreciate a beautiful and primitive nature experience.

There is no indoor service. Everything you need, from tents to toothpicks, you have to bring yourself.

What does occupancy look like during a season?

  • During the first half of June you can have the feeling of having the campsite almost to yourself
  • June is rarely fully booked (with the except for Midsummer and the last days of the month).
  • July and until mid-August is always fully booked. This is when we have the most families with children enjoying the summer vacation and Koster.
  • From the 3rd week of August onwards it is never fully booked
  • In the second half of August, once again, you can have the feeling of having the campsite almost to yourself
