Very good location. But the place is rundown. The couple running the place was very nice, but more occupied in running the farm than the place.The sitting room was not open all the time, and in spite of having liecence for selling beer etc., there were never anyone attending the bar, or what ever, in the three night we were there. Fishing can be very good, and we did catch some big once.

Thank you for your comment. I am sorry your stay was not quite as expected. From midsummer until mid August we have our reception open the whole day. Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to have the reception open at all times. But we are always close by, and available if you need anything. I hope we explained well enough that we are only a phone call away if you needed any help, or if you wanted to use the reception area. We are not a hotell or a high end outfitter, nor are we trying to be. We try to provide good nature experiences for an affordable prize. We are a small family run business and have to prioritize to do maintenance and other chores during the low season, and we are constantly working to improve our facilities. Best regards Monica

A group of us have been coming to Johnsgaard Turistsenter for a good number of years. It is definitely the people who run Johnsgaard that make the place so special. They are warm hearted and will lift your soul. The self catering cabins are very cute and warm. They have well equipped kitchenettes, a log burning stove, a sitting room, bedrooms and bathroom and shower facilities. There are lots of activities and they have two saunas (one by the lake and another by their man-made beach) and a hot tub. They frequently hold community events there and there is an annual music festival held every August with a mixture of Scandinavian folk music, rock music and Irish traditional music! If you want a break away from the hectic-ness of the world... go here. It is quite isolated but that is the beauty of it. They do have a small shop for supplies such as milk, toilet roll, snacks etc.

September 2016, Stayed in a larger cabin with shower and toilet 3 bedrooms/ coffeemaker/ running water and cooking availability. Owners are very nice and helpful. Did one of the hikes around the campsite, the scenery is more like Sweden, but still a very nice hike. in this period they did not turn on the campsite lights, where we got to see this beautiful night sky full of stars and the milky way. towards the north some parts of the Northern lights were visible! One thing, if preferred, Wifi only available at the reception area/ small kiosk with needful things:) and fresh bread in the morning (order the day before)

While I have stayed here before, this is not my favourite place. If you like hiking in the woods, canoeing and fishing, and during the winter, cross-country skiing, this is the place for you. This is a farm, and is very family-friendly, they have animals that children would probably enjoy seeing. The cabin was nice, with a small kitchen/kitchenette and three bedrooms, two of them with two single beds and one with a double bed. There is no tv in the cabins, and no internet/wifi. They have a small kiosk, which is also where you check in. All in all, it is a nice place to stay, but it just isn't for me, as I prefer a bit more comfort when on vacation.
