The beach at Sjøsanden Feriesenter is outstanding and the little outdoor restaurant there was surprisingly good. But be advised, if you arrive with a tent, go to the area up by the beach to get as far away as possible from the motorhomes and trailers. While there are no electrical hook-ups in the tent area, it is worth it to escape the madding crowd and noise of the main area. We wanted the electrical hook-up. Our mistake. Our neighbors chatted loudly until 11.20 pm. Be aware that you have the right to ask people to quiet down after 11 pm during summer. Norwegians are generally very polite people and readily consent, even if they don't like it, if the rules are on your side. There is a nice little convenience store (but they don't have ear plugs, and soft candy doesn't work). The toilet facilities were nice and clean, aside from the guy puking his guts out in a toilet stall at 6.30 am (was it too much booze the night before or a flu virus?)This is a lovely spot along Norway's south coast, but the campground itself was too hectic. We packed up and left as quick as we could in the morning.

We have been camping/tenting here for over 20 years. There is a separate area closest to the beach for tents. The bathrooms and showers are clean and there is a nice kitchen available for use if need be and a small shop selling essentials. Be aware that this is a family camping park with a minimum age if 30. Peaceful evenings. There is no electricity in the tent area, but there is plenty of electric points for campers and vans. There are also el in the kitchen. There are two grocery stores a short walk towards town. Everything is in walking distance. Weekends can be busy, so arrive early to find your dream spot. Don’t expect warm ocean water but the beach is wonderful and the water clear. As the beach is by the mouth of the Mandal river, the salt content is low. Great walking/jogging trails all through the area of Furulunden around the campsite. It doesn’t get full score because the prices have gone up for camping and for fresh rolls in the morning.

The Apartment was good and clean, the beds were a little bit too old, enough space for 4 people, cat and a dog. Just behind the Apartment is the Beach and you can walk to Mandal`s city in less than 10 min. My Family and I love this Place and it`s not going to be the last time we will travel here.

We camped her one friday night, and there was a local band playing. They were actually very good. Unfortunately the morons working at the restaurant/pub where the concert was held made awful noise until almost 4pm when tidying up the place after the concert. In my opinion the place is also too crowded and the toilets are therefore not so inviting.

Beautiful location under pine trees next to a fine sand beach. Easy access from and to Kristiansand's ferry crossings. Prices are OK. The campsite is 5min away on foot from the city center (shopping center + restaurant). Washer and dryer can be booked and they are great ! The staff is friendly, young and very welcoming. It is also a great location for road and trail runners with easy access to pine woods and gravel footpaths along the coastline. Finally the campsite features great camper services. The only downside is the sanitary block. Shower and WC are OK but could be cleaned more often.
