Alan Rogers Review
Camp Soca is just off the main road on a shelving bluff formed by a wide curve of the Soca River. The site, with around 250 touring pitches, is literally theatrical as its two upper terraces and its large lower platform form a natural amphitheatre from which the mountains at the head of the Lepena valley can be readily admired. From Kranjska Gora an amazing road runs southwest to the upper Soca valley. This road was built by Russian prisoners of war during WW1 in order to allow Austria to move troops and supplies towards the Italian frontier. Those with large motorcaravans or towed caravans should note that it is tough going with over 50 hairpin bends!
Those who have successfully negotiated the 1,600 m. summit usually drop down to the busy small town of Bovec where there are several campsites. These have little to commend them except to canoeists for the turbulent waters of the Soca in this area are world famous among kayak and raft enthusiasts. Fortunately for non-canoeists there is Camp Soca in the spectacular Lepena valley which is one end of a wonderful mountain trail, the other end of which is Bohinj (this trail was also opened by the Austrian army in WW1). Those in need of a good restaurant or bar, a game of tennis or a ride on a Lipizzaner can cross the Soca on a wobbly wire and plank bridge which leads direct from the camp, through the woods on the opposite bank, to a small, tasteful holiday resort.
