Camping holidays: family camping with children

A camping holiday with children - surrounded by Alpine countryside

A successful family camping holiday with children or a baby does not have to be 24-hour staged adventure camping. What makes our family campsite so great is its authentic and family-friendly leisure and nature experiences for guests of all ages.

Ideal camping accommodation for camping holidays with children

When choosing camping accommodation, we recommend our great XXL pitches, our 6 camping huts as a good supplement to a caravan or tent pitch. There are also three Alpine Lodges in the Alpine village at Grubhof for a traditional holiday in Salzburg.

Family campsites - holidays with children - facilities at the campsite

Camping with children is an unforgettable experience for the whole family. A successful camping holiday for families and children requires, above all, child-friendly indoor and outdoor facilities and sufficient activities and recreational opportunities for the whole family.

Our family campsite offers peace-seeking guests, and families with adventurous children, camping areas where different interests can be pursued without disturbing one another.  We offer the following spacious facilities on the campsite especially for families and kids for unforgettable moments while camping with children.

Indoor highlights – family camping:

  • Children’s play room in the campsite’s main building 
  • Games room with table tennis and table football
  • Family showers in the sanitary facilities 
  • Baby baths / nappy changing room 

Outdoor highlights – camping close to nature with kids:

  • Bathing fun in the summer in the river for both grown-ups and little ones at low water levels
  • Plenty of open areas and space - 4 hectares of flower-covered meadows in the very heart of the campsite  
  • Children’s play area

Hire camping huts: tips for camping with a small child or baby

Families with small children or babies are welcome to make use of our camping huts for 2 to 4 people as accommodation at the family campsite. While older children seek adventure and want to sleep in a tent, the camping huts provide the security of a solid and dry shelter for smaller children or babies. They offer sufficient storage space for everything you bring with you and the convenience of a small kitchen in which you can quickly and easily warm milk and prepare a hot meal. This guarantees a camping holiday with a baby will be relaxing and pleasant.
