Slovenia, Recica ob Savinji
Alan Rogers Review
Camping Menina is in the heart of the 35 km. long Upper Savinja Valley, surrounded by 2,500 m. high mountains and unspoilt nature. It is being improved every year by the young, enthusiastic owner, Jurij Kolenc, and has 200 pitches, all for touring units, on grassy fields under mature trees and with access from gravel roads. All have 10A electricity. The Savinja river runs along one side of the site, but if the water is too cold, the site also has a lake which can be used for swimming. This site is a perfect base for walking or mountain biking in the mountains.
A wealth of maps and routes are available from reception. Rafting, canyoning and kayaking opportunities in the area encourages many groups to the site. Each year something extra appears to be added to this ever-changing campsite; a tree-top zip wire, a sauna and a ‘bear lodge’ are more recent additions. The site is now open all year to offer skiing holidays.

Bar/restaurant with open-air terrace (1/5-31/10) and open-air kitchen. Sauna. Playing field. Play area. Tree-top zip wire. Fishing. Russian bowling. Excursions (52).
