“Very good campsite in Bergen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Traveling on our motorbike we had a very pleasant stay at Grimen Camping. Our cabin was very comfortable and the facilities good. We found the manager Lars particularly helpful and accommodating and highly recommend this campsite to other bikers

Stayed June 2014, travelled with family

Grimen camping was perfect for our needs. It was a clean site with nice views (not quite as shocking as some other places in the area) and if you had the Bergen card, was in the zone of free public transport into Bergen. Also, the airport was very close, an easy 20min drive for us. The facilities were good, hot showers and good cooking facilities. We stayed in a tent but there were lots of campervans and people staying in cabins too. The price is similar to all other campsites we stayed at around the Fjords. I would reccommend this campsite to anyone that wants easy access to Bergen. It is not ideal though for a long stay as the road it's on is too busy to relax properly and there is not much you can access close by on foot.

Stayed August 2013, travelled as a couple

Although the camping lies right by a busy road, it is situated in a lovely setting, on the shore of a lake with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.
We stayed in a small, neat cabin with two bunk beds, an electric hob, kettle and a mini fridge, with table and chairs. The linens cost NOK 80 per person. Probably a new set of mattress, pillows and douvet would be necessary as they were overused and smelled, but this is the only negative thing about our experience.
There is no running water in the small cabins, but the communal bathroom isn't far, and the bathroom and kitchen were always very clean. There is a small charge for showers NOK 10/6 minutes, but this is usual in Norway. There is also a launderette corner but we did not use it so cannot comment on it.
We had an easy 40-45 minute commute to Bergen, the bus stop is just opposite the camping and takes you to Nesstun in about 10 minutes, then you have to take Bybanen to Bergen centrum.
The camping was full albeit not crowded at all. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, a very good experience!

Room Tip: The small cabins are noisier as they are very close to the main road.
