Bogstad Camp & Turistsenter
Ranked #23 of 35 Speciality Lodging in Oslo
Reviewed 10 June 2013

This campsite is 7km from the centre of Oslo and reached very easily by a bus that departs from a side street just down the road from Oslo central station. TIP! - don't pay for a ticket on the bus. It cost us 50NOK each one way and its only 80NOK for an entire day pass to use as much as you like. it was our first time in Norway and we didn't know this. We stayed here as Ekeberg camping didn't open for another day. its a lovely big campsite with a bar and a supermarket. It has a nice site to pitch your tent. We stayed for one night before heading of into the mountains. We would stay again if we returned to Oslo.

We stayed here in very cold conditions with several feet of snow! The cabin was cosy and very comfortable, with a small kitchen area, bed and lounge.

It was very easy to get into central Oslo by taking the bus.

My only complaint is that it was very hard to get to the shower/toilet area through several feet of snow. The area was very badly lit and you really had to watch your footing. It really was very inconvenient, especially if you needed the toilet in the night.

However not a bad stay and really enjoyed the warmth of the cabin after a long day!

Room Tip: Make sure you book a cabin with a bathroom!

Myself and three colleagues stayed here courtesy of a friend who is from norway. I have to say it was a pleasent stay. The cabbin we had had two bedrooms with bunkbeds in both. A nice sized bathroom and kitchen/lounge area. Well heated cabins made you want to stay in bed all day. We were near the Holmenkollen ski resort which we walked to and the transport system to and from the campsite was on point. All in all we had a great experience in a cosy cabin in Oslo.

Room Tip: There is no wifi within the facilities. I think you have to go to reception for any sort of internet...

We were starting a May tour of Norway in Oslo. Having spent three days driving there, we decided to have a two-day break here. As there are no other camp sites within a 30 mile radius of Oslo, and the other two city sites were closed until June, we booked and paid for two nights.
On paper it all looks good, but its too good to be true.
It was the most expensive site on our two-week tour.
The free wi-fi only works within a few yards of the reception building. If you choose to pitch in this area, you will also be close to the filling station next to the gate. This is a popular hang-out for the local street racers, exercising their sub-woofers into the early hours.
After one night we were glad to get out. I didn't even bother to ask for my money back for the second night.
Do yourself a favour; stay out of town and drive in for your city visit if you must.

We stayed there in winter in a cabin. The whole camping was empty, as it was the middle of the cold season in a very cold country. The hut was very well equipped – we had a nice kitchen with living room and two bedrooms. One thigh was missing, though – the bathroom. There are sanitary buildings in the area, of course, but the walk in chilling cold, may be a big inconvenience. The cabins are very warm thanks to the numerous heaters, so we were secure from the December cold. The car can be parked right next to the cabin. The camping is of course far away from the center of Oslo, but the nice neighborhood recompenses it.

Once the prices of Oslo Hotels weren't going to get any lower with the dollar dropping I started wondering where I really wanted to stay. No matter where it would cost a fortune.

A dive by the train station so I could wake up every morning wondering which city I'm in? That's last choice.

A lodge in the mountains? The glaciers are unstable in November so the Finse Lodge and others close for the month. The Ice Hotel in Alta doesn't let you rent rooms until January.

A cabin in the woods? An Internet search came up with Bogstad camping on the old estate of a former prime minister of Norway. You can rent 4 person cabins without bathrooms for about $120 a day.

Bus 32, which you catch in front of one of the yellow Thon Hotels about a block southeast of the train station, will take you in half an hour to Bogstad Camping. It has its own bus stop. You can also catch subway #2 to Roa and transfer to bus 32, saving about ten minutes each way.

The cabins have kitchenettes, a double bed and upper single bunk, and two couch mattresses for sleeping, and a TV. Linoleum floors, wood panelling, lots of windows. You rent sheets for the comforters and pillows.

The campground has a food store, restaurant and gift store in the office.

You can see the Holmenkollen ski jump uphill from the campground.

I brought gear to weather an arctic blizzard but the weather hovered right around freezing the whole week.

But if a cabin by a lake with a golf course, hiking trails by ponds with red cabins and a museum estate doesn’t interest you there is a $250 a night cute, wooden, historic with small modern rooms Holmenkollen Park Hotel Rica on subway line 1 to Holmenkollen.
