Camping around Lake Balaton gives a glimpse into a way of life where everything is in one place, and everyone helps each other out. Here’s a look at Siófok’s Aranypart Camping before the season officially kicks off on April 27.
Looking at what we know from keeping an eye on the region all year long, two things are for sure: that Balaton is alive and well during the off-season, too, and that the south shore is just as great as the north. Now that spring is in full swing, ice cream and camping are back on the to-do lists after the darker days of the colder months.
Campgrounds on Lake Balaton’s shore are like villages: each has its own community, its experienced returning visitors who can’t wait to claim their usual spot and to say hi to their old and new neighbours. The homely atmosphere, the waterfront, the affordability, and the fact that everything is in one place, are always strong arguments for camping. Of course, it’s also a big plus that such holidays now mean trailers as well as tents.
Aranypart Camping in Siófok is a great choice as it’s only a pleasant five kilometres from the town centre – and, of course, it’s on the waterfront. You can stay at a modern holiday homes or a mobile home, while they also have spots for trailers and tents for those who wish to camp in authenticity. The houses have new, simple furnishings that put an emphasis on functionality. These are comfortable for larger families or groups of friends, and come with their own balcony or porch.
The camping officially fully opens on April 27 with all the things a decent village might need: snack outlets, restaurants (including the popular Paletta), a deli, an outdoor cinema, bike rental, and there’s even a massage salon on the grounds. You don’t have to go far for a swim either: the public beach is right in front of the campground.
The entire facility is kiddie-friendly: there are playgrounds, adventure pools and slides. Children's entertainers will be available from the middle of June. Although you can easily fill your days with all the available fun at the campground, there’s already a long list of things to do around the area for those who wish to see more of it.
