Welcome to our modern, well-equipped, 4-star campsite, which has something for the whole family. Our campsite is also a meeting place for salmon anglers on the Drammen River. The site lies in quiet, idyllic surroundings by the river, just 500 metres from the centre of Hokksund.
Salmon fishing on the Drammen River
Salmon fishing on the Drammen River is first mentioned in a historical context back in the 12th century. The excellent fishing has since been described in a number of documents over the last 700-800 years. The Drammen River is best known for commercial fishing, with big catches being landed using nets in the river and fixed traps at the Hellefossen falls. The Drammen River is now one of the best salmon rivers in Norway and the fishing is controlled jointly by landowners and the angling club.
Hokksund Camping is just 500 metres from the centre of Hokksund, where there is a wide range of shops and cafés. The nearest supermarket (Prix) is just 200 metres from the campsite.
We have children’s playgrounds offering a range of activities. The site also has a football pitch and several barbecue areas, where campers can meet to cook and socialise.
Cafeteria and reception
Our cafeteria, Laksehytta, is licensed to sell beer and wine. During the season it serves everything from breakfast to dinner, as well as selling convenience goods and drinks. It is a natural meeting place for swapping stories, having a pleasant chat and boasting about the day’s catch.
The site has pitches for 195 caravans, 160 of them with their own mains hook-up. There is also a separate area for motorhomes and other short-stay campers.
Cabins and rooms
We have 23 cabins, most of them with winter insulation for year-round use. The majority have their own toilet, shower and television. The site also lets rooms, all recently refurbished, on the first floor of the service building.
Hokksund Camping has two modern sanitation buildings and a third is under construction. These facilities can only be used by campers with a pass.
