Despite being high season when we arrived there were just four other units on site, there is normally a huge lake. This year the lake has been drained for maintenance and repair - ergo the campsite is empty. The lady in reception said that at this time of year the place was usually packed but “ . . . it’s much nicer when its quiet like this . . .”. She is right it is pleasant empty but of course the owner must be pulling his/her hair out, the canoes, pedalos etc all stacked and useless beside a big brown hole on which JCB’s and bulldozers are scuttling about like so many water boatmen.

The facilities are are bright and clean but why put glass panels, albeit obscured, in the loo doors? and the showers, while thankfully NOT unisex, are domestic cubicles within a single large changing area, fine when you are young and have a young body but when you are 67 and have a body like mine it’s best to have privacy so as to not cause nightmares in aforementioned young people.

There is a laundry room with a single machine that is charged at just PLN10 per load.

Although we haven't visited there is a bar on site which seems quite popular considering the low numbers on the site we are not sure if food is sold but if not there is a Pizza restaurant/takeaway just a couple of minutes walk away which we tried one night it was very good and cheap. Almost next door to the pizza place is a supermarket, there is also a Tesco within a few minutes drive.

The staff on the site are friendly and speak English.

The site is virtually empty, only four units here. Nightmare for the bill payer.

The lake is being deepened a little and lined with clay.

We stayed here for 10 nights at an advertised rate of PLN 50 per night but with various discounts the price actually worked out to PLN 36 around £7.62 per night.
