“Our favourite campsite”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is our favourite campsite - terrific location, great service, not too noisy after 10 p.m., good little restaurant and pizza takeaway, plenty of room between pitches, clean toilets. What's not to like? There is a great circular cable-car/walk/train/bus trek that you can do, which suits all ages - the oldies can hop on the train while the kids and dogs can run along the paths. We haven't found anywhere to match it for keeping kids/grandparents/adults entertained. The Trummelbach Falls nearby are worth a visit, as is Schilthorn if you have plenty of cash. The only downside is that it can be cold at night - make sure you have a decent sleeping bag if camping in May.

We camped here last week for 4 nights. The site is surrounded by the most amazing scenery ever. Our tent was just about flooding on the 2nd night due to slow drainage after rain. We went to explain this to the site management who immediately offered us a mobile home for the night at no extra charge and were insistent that if it didn't improve, they would "find a solution". I have seen British camp site owners face the same issue by shrugging their shoulders and saying "it's your risk when you camp..." so I thought that Camping Jungfrau were great. Fortunately, the tent was 100% dry for us to stay in on subsequent nights and we were blessed with beautiful weather and clear skies. So in summary, I'd recommend not just the stunning location but also the management.

This place is great for most of the things you look for while camping.
Toilets and shower areas are clean and heated! Which is very important in Switzerland, the weather is not always great and the nights are chilly, taking a shower in a heater area makes a big difference.
The location is more than amazing, all the walks suggested by the staff are excellent and the ladies at reception were very helpful, they would give you all the maps and all the info that you need.
There is a shop on the site and a restaurant (probably the best and the cheapest one in the whole valley!), which is more than helpful. Additionally, there's a kitchen that anybody can use to prepare their food, coffee, tea, whatever you need, and eat your breakfasts/dinners at.
The only bad thing for me was the fact that the camping is quite big and you get a lot of people there. We had a lot of teenagers from Contiki Holidays, they were quite loud, doing their make-up in the toilets, drinking and partying. Not everybody would be fine with that, so I thought I should mention that.
All in all, perfect place, perfect location, perfect service!

Breathtaking location, great staff, cute little cabins!
I stayed in a 4 person cabin - they are tiny but everything you need.
The batherooms are a little run if your busting in the morning but that is about the only thing i can say thats not raving about this place! They get warm but you have a cute little zircon which also doubles as a heater for the cold nights. You open up your room to a massive waterfall on one side, a snow capped mountain on the other, and greenery all round. I extended my stay to 7 nights and would reccomend staying at least 4 nights!! And go skydiving!!

You walk around this place with a big grin on your face most of the time, in awe of the 360 landscape.

The location cannot be beaten. The staff are friendly. The restaurant dishes up tasty Swiss favourites to be enjoyed in the chalet style restaurant or to be taken back to your lodge, mobile or tent!

There is a useful on site shop, with all the essentials and a daily supply of fresh bread rolls.

On the Friday night when we were there, there was a fantastic Swiss folklore night, comprising yodel singing, a local orchestra and drum ensemble of the highest standard - all accompanied by excellent local beer and tasty bratwurst - fantastic.

Otherwise life at Camping Jungfrau is low key and a great base from which to explore the Jungfrau region and beyond.

The whole family is looking forward to our next visit.

Some very minor negative points for those visiting with young ones: 1) there is a very rapid river running past the property, with a low fence which would benefit from being covered with chicken wire for safety - just in case your toddler escapes your view for a brief second. 2) the site is also used by coach tours with students and young travellers from all over the world as they tour Europe. Most of these kids are great, but one or two are quite loud, brash and foul mouthed. We had an otherwise wonderful meal in the on site restaurant punctuated by an exuberant young lady from Australia who used a selection of expletives to describe to her friends just how ******* wonderful the ******* Rosti was. Indeed in was - but my kids didn't need to hear it!

Stayed here at a dorm last week. My experience was simple wonderful. Ideal location to visit Jungfrau and Schilthorn. It has a restaurant, bar and a supermarket inside which are great. The scenic beauty around cannot be penned down. I was awestruck! would love to go back again and again...

We arrived much later than expected and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Reception had closed some hours ago and the restaurant team were great and helped us into our cabin/dorm and made sure that we got something to eat, despite us arriving minutes before they stopped serving for the night.

The campsite itself is excellent, with very good facilities, and in an idyllic Swiss mountain location with a truly stunning waterfall just above it cascading down the cliff, and great views down the valley.

The atmosphere is great, with a real buzz to the place, and a good mix of ages and nationalities using the site. The food and drink was good quality typical Swiss/alpine fare, and very welcome after a long queue for the tunnel from Italy.

The nearby 'waterfall in the rocks' was stunning, and this would be a great place to go walking from and to explore the Oberland area from. The weather wasn't great when we were there, but even in the rain this was a charming campsite and my girlfriend and I both agreed that we will certainly go back there again.
