Whether you just want to take it easy and enjoy summer, holidays and swedish fika, or be a little more active, there is something for everyone at Stocken camping!
For children there is a nice big playground with the much appreciated jumping pillow.
They can dig with the excavator “Grävis”, rent pedal cars and on special occasions – weather permitting, enjoy the bouncy castles. For more organized children’s activities, it is possible to register your children to The Football School and The Children’s Club.
Challenge your family or friends to a game of adventure minigolf, or perhaps go crabfishing, have a game of boule or go for a bikeride. The bikes for rent are equipped with both a bicycle helmets and baskets, and if needed, we have two bikes with child bike seats. Hiking on the cliffs along the sea edge is another popular activity, from where you can enjoy our beautiful archipelago. Some even like to bring their fishing rods with them – or why not bring coffee and freshly baked cinnamon rolls from the campsite shop? To enjoy walking- or biking trails on and around the camping area, there are maps to borrow at the reception.
Our sandy beach is beautifully surrounded by cliffs and sea. It´s childfriendly shallow waters is suitable for both big and small people. We have a toilet on site and not least the sauna, which anyone can rent. A little further along the cliffs you will find both a bathing jetty and a sundeck.
Those who are a little more adventurous, may want to get to the rocky beach at the end of the White trail.
Dogs are not allowed at the peoples beach, however in the bay at the beginning of the White trail, you can let the dog cool off in the sea and enjoy the summer, just like us! After the salty sea bath, it might be time for a shampooing and blowdry at our professionally equipped dog shower at the Service Station, in the middle of the campsite.
For those who want to get out on the water and enjoy the fantastic archipelago, we can recommend Bohus Kayak, situated on the camping grounds, where you can rent kayaks and equipment and get good advice on anything to do with kayaking.
The Childrens club
Unfortunately, due to staff shortages, we have to cancel the Childrens Club this year.
However, during summer there will be crabfishingcompetitions, so keep an eye on our Facebook/Instagram for more information.
The children’s club is open in high season, Monday – Wednesday – Friday, between 16.00 – 18.00.
Lots of fun activities are on the agenda:
- On Mondays we do different childrens arts and crafts.
- On Wednesdays we play board games inside, or play “kubb”, boule or do other outdoor games.
- Fridays are for ballgames, like football.
Every now and then we also go crab fishing or jumping in our bouncy castles – or maybe a clown comes to visit!
Bicycles for adults can be rented at the golfkiosk. They are all equipped with both helmets and bicyclebaskets, and on two of the bikes there are also children’s seats for the youngest. Bicycle maps to borrow or buy are available at the reception.
The very popular pedalcars can also be rented here.
Our football school is a popular feature and it takes place during four days in July, at Stocken camping’s own football field. The participants are usually divided into two age groups, 6-10 years and 11-15 years. Organizer is Conny Larsson (Football Developer, Västergötlands Fotbollsförbund).
If you feel like experiencing something more, on top of what Stocken Camping can offer, we are a good starting point for various excursions. For more tips and information, ask our staff or visit our little red Info-pointcabin by the reception.
Käringön, Gullholmen and Hermanö are beautiful islands that are well worth a visit. The easiest way to get to the ferry location in Tuvesvik, 5 km from the campsite, is by car or bike. Bikes are available for rent at the golf kiosk.
Why not take an islandtrip over to Evert Taube’s Malö, Handelsmans Flink on Flatön and Ängön? (Evert Taube was and still is, a most respected swedish composer/troubadour). Driving up the Bohus coast along these charming island summerroads, only to be interrupted by smaller car ferries, is definitely to be preferred than hurrying along the main roads.
Golfplayers may want to visit Orust Golf Club, in Morlanda. It is a seaside course set in amazing surroundings with a tremendous seaview. After golf it is possible to enjoy a delicious lunch or coffee at their restaurant.
A day trip to Gothenburg is a given for anyone who enjoys the westcoast citylife and its many features, combined perhaps with a visit to Liseberg, the amusement park that has been around since 1923.
Charming, old fishing villages up and down the westcoast are popular destinations, for example here on Orust: Hälleviksstrand with its beautiful red wooden church, or Mollösund where you walk among old quaint houses on narrow streets and buy fresh fish and seafood from the fishmongers in the small harbour.
In Klädesholmen, on Tjörn, you can visit the Herringmuseum, and learn more about the history of herringfishing.
A day spent on Tjörn, to for instance visit the outdoor Pilane Sculpture Park – don’t forget to bring your picnicbasket, and the Nordic Watercolour Museum in Skärholmen, is a day well spent.
At Havets Hus, the saltwater aquarium in Lysekil, you get to learn a lot about life and environment in the western sea.
Nordens Ark in Hunnebostrand is another popular attraction – a zoological garden focused on among other things conservation of endangered species.
If you feel like testing your sea legs, you should book yourself in on an archipelago-tour or sealsafari.
