stockendagen

Stockendagen

On the 2nd weekend in July, Saturday 9/7, it is time for Stocken-dagen. This is an annual event that originates from Anita & Freddy, who own the campsite, wanting to celebrate running the campsite for 10 years, in 2015.

Since the event was so appreciated, it was decided that it would be carried out every year and then, as now, it takes place in cooperation with Föreningen Stocken, (the Stocken Association).

We usually have quiz walks for the whole family, lotteries, market stalls and exhibitors, maybe even a flea market – and weather permitting, bouncy castles for the children.

Kajaker

Stockenträffen

Stockenträffen, 18-21/8, is a recurring large and popular event that is a given for anyone who appreciates the kayak way of life! The event is organized by Tjörn kajak together with Bohus Kayak, and takes place with us every year in August. Be sure to book a campingpitch or cottage on time!
