Alan Rogers Review

Askehøj Camping is a quiet family site on partially-terraced ground near Silkeborg. This is the Danish Lake District in the centre of the country’s most beautiful natural area. The 280 pitches here are in rows on small rectangular fields, each taking 6-10 units. Most pitches are level and the rows are separated by high bushes. Askehøj takes 190 touring units, all with electricity (6/10/13A). A new small sanitary block serves the furthest pitches. The site is surrounded by mature trees. According to the owner, most people come here to enjoy walking, cycling and fishing (there is a lake nearby) or to visit Silkeborg or Århus. English is spoken.

Try a tour on the lake on Denmark’s oldest steamboat or visit the Himmelbjerget viewing point from where there are beautiful views of the lake, the woods and the surrounding countryside. There is a good sized outdoor pool (free) with a small slide and a separate paddling pool, minigolf and bouncy cushions, which are like huge inflatable trampolines. A separate recreational area is used for football and other larger scale games. The shop is well stocked and has fresh bread to order each morning.


One traditional style toilet block provides basic, but clean facilities with free showers and a special section for children. Second more modern block. Facilities for disabled visitors. Laundry with washing machines, dryers and spin dryer. Campers’ kitchen. Shop (bread to order). Swimming pool (15x8 m) with slide and paddling pool. Playground. Minigolf. Boules. Entertainment programme for children (high season). Games room. Outdoor eating area. WiFi (charged).
