Alan Rogers Review of Autocamping Orlice
Autocamping Orlice is located on the bank of the Orlice River, near a modern swimming pool and tennis courts near the edge of the town. Surrounded by tall trees, the grass pitches are generous, although not marked or numbered, and are located on each side of a concrete grid road that runs the length of this rectangular site. There is room for 70 units, half with electric points (16A) and shade in parts. There is a hotel alongside the campsite with 60 cabins also available to rent on-site.
On-site facilities include a restaurant with a garden with plenty of outdoor seating areas; here, you can enjoy breakfast and a quick snack during the day with a large selection of refreshing drinks available. During high season, social events are held here. Part of the restaurant also has a children's corner. Outside, you will find a children's playground with swings, a sandpit and a slide. There is also a trampoline available. Next to this, there is a communal BBQ and bonfire area.
A shared kitchen equipped with a kettle, electric stoves, a large refrigerator and sinks for dishes is also available to all campsite visitors. Unlike most Czech sites, showers have dividers, space for dressing, a door that locks, and even a chair!
It is a good site for those seeking rest and quiet and not needing organised activities. But as the site does run next to the River Orlice, this is the prefect site for those who enjoy fishing; you can also rent kayaks from the site to explore the area by water. The friendly manager speaks good English and will be pleased to advise on local attractions. Kostelec has an ancient castle and a large Ferodo factory, although there is not much else to commend it. Still, it is an excellent centre to explore the exciting towns of Hradec Kralove, East Bohemia, the Orlicke Hory and other high districts near the Polish border.
