Lonely Planet review
Most visitors bring a tent to this large, gravelly campsite (with laundry facilities, and hot showers for Ikr400). It gets very busy (and loud) in summer. The only other place you’re allowed to camp is at the Kjós campsite (free, but you must obtain a permit from the visitor centre before you set off).
Our independent authors have visited Visitor Centre Campsite and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Skaftafell (Vatnajökull National Park - South).
