Driving To Croatia Day 3 – Austrian Campsite

Croatia Camping Guide - Campsite Putterersee

We’ve never stayed overnight in Austria before and the scenery is so stunning we decided to stop a little early to admire it for longer. So, at about 4 15, and after consulting our ACSI App (see the last but one posting - Croatia Camping Guide - Day 1 & ACSI Card), we arrived at the magnificent location that was Camp Putterersee – lakes, mountains, green grass, sunshine…..all it needed was the von Trapp family running down the hill singing The Sound of Music.


It’s by a small settlement called Aigen im Ennstal, near Liezen, between the two main motorways – A9 and A10. According to Wikipedia, it was one of the locations in the classic film – Where Eagles Dare. - and if you’re interested in the journey on Day 3, and how we got there, read Croatia Online - Driving To Croatia Day 3.

Reception at Camp Putterersee did not open till 7 but, with the guidance of another camper, we chose our pitch, connected our hook up, and wandered down to the lake. It really is a lush and spectacular setting and the facilities were clean and modern. There are some nice touches too, including a dog shower and pedestals under the water taps so you can put your bottles on them.

It was not the cheapest of our campsites though, the total cost coming to  €16.6 which broke down as follows: pitch (including electricity @ €2.9) - €7.6, adult - €5.7, dog - €2..1, community levy €1.2. However it seemed like pretty good value and certainly it attracted a very friendly bunch of campers.
