Spent a week at Tromso camping in mid-June and found it to be ideal for us (family with 3 kids under 7).
Had booked one of the 2 bedroom, 5 person, river cabins and it had enough room for us all to fit with relative comfort.
Bunks for the kids were great though the double bed was a little on the small side.
As we were there during the time of the Midnight Sun (though it was overcast for full 7 days) we were a bit concerned that constant day light would keep kids awake but rooms had black-out blinds so wasn't a problem.
While it is a little bit out of town it fitted our needs with young kids as there was plenty of space for them to run around outside and football pitches and rivers and small playground close by to keep them amused.
Was only a 5 minute walk to bus stop into town and service was frequent.
Certainly was good value in what is a very expensive country!
As it is self catering there is a small kitchen area in cabin with a hob and microwave so enough for basic meals to be cooked. Few basic supplies can be bought in the shop/ restaurant on-site though better buying in one of the supermarkets in town.
Staff were very helpful and friendly
Couple of slightly annoying things:
Fridge in the cabin was broken so a little annoying
TV in cabin has 3 basic channels and you have to pay extra for a satellite card to get more channels. However, we couldn't get the satellite card to work and camp manager even had a couple of goes and gave up.
Also paid extra for internet connection but connection was so flakey that we gave it back (and got a refund).
If you are planning on traveling to Tromso with kids I'd certainly recommend here over a more cramped hotel in town that you will probably pay extra for
