Alan Rogers Review

Uniquely centred around a working fishing quay set in an idyllic bay, Skjerneset Camping has been developed by the Otterlei family to give visitors an historical insight into this industry. It steps back in time in all but its facilities and offers 25 boats to hire and organised trips on a real fishing boat. Found on the tiny island of Ekkilsøya off Averøy, there is space for 30 caravans and motorcaravans on gravel hardstandings landscaped into rocks and trees, each individually shaped and sized and all having electricity connections (10/16A). There are grassy areas for tents on the upper terraces and six fully equipped cabins.

Although the fishing industry here has declined, it is still the dominant activity. The old Klippfisk warehouse is now a fascinating ‘fisherimuseum’ and also houses the main sanitary installations and reception. It encompasses a large kitchen, laundry, several lounges with satellite TV and others for those who prefer to make their own entertainment, and five small four-bed apartments. A table capable of seating the whole campsite runs the length of the top floor of the old warehouse where, steeped in history, special events can be celebrated. Varied activities are available including free bicycle hire, walking and ornithological opportunities, comprehensive boat hire and facilities for visiting fishermen to clean and freeze their catches.
