Alan Rogers Review
The old town of Riga is certainly well worth a visit and this new site provides the opportunity. Based on a small island in the Daugava River in a mixed urban area, this small site provides 100 touring pitches; all with electricity connections. Much of the old town has been rebuilt since the war and the informative and perhaps disturbing Museum of Occupation near the Town Hall is worth visiting as is the Art-Nouveau architecture of Riga’s residential area. The market, which occupies the former Zeppelin hangers, should also be seen. Latvia’s answer to fast food is also an essential part of your visit – ‘pelmeni’ (meat dumplings fried, boiled or swimming in soup) and pancakes are cheap, filling and tasty and are served throughout the town.
New sanitary block at far end of the site has hot showers (with curtains). A further WC is available by the entrance. Bar/snack bar. Bicycle hire. CCTV security and a new power supply have been installed. English is spoken in reception. WiFi.

Kipsalas is a small island in the Daugava River in central Riga. From the old town cross the new suspension bridge and at the end of the bridge go down the slip road, turn right after 300 m. (large campsite sign) and site is 800 m. on the left. Do not follow sat nav directions.
