campsite from other end of lake
Camping Bled September 2012 & May 2016
This site is certainly in a very beautiful place, but doesn't live up to its surroundings.
This was our second visit (the first was 4 years ago) and it seems to have gone downhill.
As other reviews have said, pitching is haphazard, as pitches are numbered in groups but not marked. This means some units take up more than their
fair share leaving others cramped. There were lots of lines of washing strung between the numerous trees, which meant some pitches weren't even accessible. The ground is generally uneven and the grass was long and untidy. Some pitches are a long way from EHUs.
We had to borrow an extension from reception, for a 30 euro deposit.
On our previous visit we found most pitches were very muddy. Work is currently in progress to improve the drainage in some areas. The toilet blocks are smart and modern
but showed signs of lack of maintenance. In the one I used there was a broken-off tap in the ladies and OH said there was a broken shower in his. Cleaning wasn't frequent enough for such a busy site.
Each time we used reception there
was a long queue because there was only one, rather frazzled person to deal with everything. When we left it took 15 minutes to pay. The impression was of a busy site struggling to cope.
The restaurant, however, is excellent, with many
Slovenian specialities. We had beef in mushroom sauce with onion dumplings and cranberries - delicious!
The town of Bled itself is not particularly attractive, and very busy, with a constant stream of coaches disgorging tourists from
all over the world. Luckily the camp site is at the other end of the lake which is much quieter and more attractive.
I'd definitely give the beauty of Lake Bled 10 stars, but not the camp site.
