Camping on the Kinneret/Galilee

Camping on the Kinneret/Galilee

I'm looking for advice on camping on the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) next weekend. Specifically I'm looking for info on campgrounds (do you need one or just set up camp anywhere? Phone numbers/places for more info?, etc. etc. etc. )

Are there places I can rent camping equipment? (either in Tel Aviv or on the Kineret).

Also: travel to the campgrounds from Tiberias. I live in Tel Aviv and would rather not rent a car becuase of the cost. I'd prefer to take the bus to Tiberias if there will be available ground transportation to the campgrounds/camping areas.

Any info, suggestions or personal experience on this would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance!

there are planty of camping sites around the Kinneret and in the galilee. if you go this time of the year i recommend to go to the kinneret and not to the galilee because of the heat - it's always fun when you can cool yourself in the water anytime you want.

some known camping sites around lake kinneret are: Gofra beach, Ha'On beach, Karei deshe. if you need any specific info - let me know.

i didn't find any information about renting equipment, but i belive you don't need more than a sleeping-bag. i can give you mine if you want...

find me here for more info,

if your hebrew is good, check out this site, which has the names/contact info on the camping grounds around the Kinneret.


if you click on "atar" (in hebrew, of course), it'll take you to a brief description of the place, plus a discount coupon if you decide to camp there.

otherwise, let me know, and i'll go through it and paste in the contact info for you.
