Hungarian Country Camping
Koppany Pines Campsite & Hungarian Country Lodges
334 Dózsa György utca, Koppanyszanto, 7094, Hungary
An idyllic spot in the Koppany Valley Nature Park where you can immerse in nature, involve yourself with one of the onsite projects or activities, hike or cycle the Koppany Trails, explore Lake Balaton and hungarian history, birdwatch, fish at a nearby private lake, star-gaze from our mini-deck, partake in some campfire cooking or preparation of goods for the Village Guest Table menu – or just relax by the pool looking out over the valley.
KOPPÁNY VALLEY NATURE PARK
…is a protected area and as such nature and wildlife are living in harmony with us. As it is one of Hungary’s more underdeveloped areas wildlife and plants have flourished. Since taking ownership of the campsite we are working towards at an eco-friendly campsite that sits comfortably in it’s environment by growing meadow fields and returning some of the hardstanding pitches to grass. All this gives you the opportunity to sit at your pitch and be at one with nature – be warned this includes butterflies, moths, bugs and insects! Each morning you will wake to a chorus of bird song before deciding how to fill your day. At night the unpolluted skies offer the ideal opportunity for stargazing and to make the most of this we have built our own mini observatory deck.
The campsite is directly on one of the Koppány Valley Trails, perfect for grabbing a packed lunch and setting out for the day. Closeby we have the national bird reserve of Pacsmags Lakes which sits off a bike route or further afield Kiz Balaton with it’s water buffulo reserve where it’s possible to be taken round by horse and cart.

Noj No recommends Koppany Pines Camping – Aug 20
The campsite has new owners- a wonderful couple: Debs and Mark. They are one of the most helpful and friendliest people I have ever met. For me, reception is of utmost importance wherever I go- and here, it was perfect!
The site itself is just lovely! If you want a real Hungarian country feeling, rustic charm: this is the place to go!
I recommend this campsite to families, couples, groups or solo travellers- anyone who wants some peace and quiet (not counting being woken up by birds of course).
Added benefit: there is practically no light pollution (or any kind of pollution) here so be prepared to get the starriest sky you have ever seen!
Find us. Book us and stay a while.
Overnight pitching area available – beware it’s so relaxing you won’t want to leave!
Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going
too fast–you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
