If you want to enjoy your camping holiday in peace and relaxation amidst the picturesque surroundings along the East Coast of Himmerland, Als Camping is the perfect place.
The campsite is located freely in nature in Als, about 6 km south of Øster Hurup. The site offers a view of the water, and a small forest borders the Kattegat. There is the opportunity to swim in the clear and very child-friendly water. You have to go far out before it gets deep. There is a natural calm on the site, and your neighbors are grazing cows.
The campsite is operated on a voluntary basis by the Als Citizen Association, which creates a very special atmosphere. The atmosphere is familial, and you can always have a chat and get tips about the area. In Als, you will find an inn, a bakery, a butcher, and a larger grocery store.
