Alan Rogers Review

Castrum Keszthely is a three-hectare site on the southwest corner of Lake Balaton. Although it is next to the main road and a railway, and there is a disco nearby, we found it surprisingly quiet at night. It is a real family site with 176 pitches, all for tourers and with electricity (6/12A). The level pitches of up to 90 sq.m. are numbered on a grass and gravel surface (firm tent pegs necessary) and are separated by hedges with shade from a variety of mature trees. It is on the wrong side of the railway that runs along the north side of Lake Balaton and therefore has no direct access to the lake or the beach. However, this is compensated for by a large, well kept outdoor pool in the centre of the site, which includes a paddling pool and sunbathing area.

The site is also within walking distance of the centre of the bustling lakeside resort of Keszthely. To the front of the site is a small kiosk for bread, some basics and fruit, and there is a welcoming restaurant in wine cellar style. In Keszthely you can visit the Festetics Castle.
