Alan Rogers Review
Usma Camping is beside Lake Usma, the fourth largest lake in Latvia, which is used extensively for watersports. The site is attractively landscaped with a variety of shrubs, colourful flowers and trees. The pitches are on grassy fields with views of the lake, most being level and in the shade of mature trees. There are 16 electricity connections (16A). The site also has 10 cabins to rent. As with so many Baltic sites, the site mainly relies on income from its rental cabins and, as a result, toilet facilities for tourers are not extensive, but they are clean and adequate. A spa hotel has been built with a covered pool, three different saunas and a restaurant and bar and internet.
With its lakeside location, Usma Camping has many opportunities for boating, including yacht and motorboat rental. All in all, this a site for watersports enthusiasts and for people who would appreciate the peace and tranquillity of nature (although at weekends the lake is busy with local visitors).
One small but good toilet block provides British style toilets, open style washbasins and free, controllable hot showers. Washing machine. Fully equipped kitchen. Motorcaravan services. Basics and bread from reception. Boat, pedalo and yacht hire. Fishing (permits from site). Bicycle hire. Boat launching. Beach. Musical nights at communal grill in season. Sauna. Torch useful.
