opened their gates in July 1990, tens of
thousands of caravans have rolled
through them. The camping site is the
largest one in the municipailty of
Flakstad, with room for 150 units.
Owners and managers have always been Per
K. Johansen and his son Bjørn Erik. And
the site boasts, as stated on their
advertisement poster, an "idyllic
location towards the midnight sun".
years the site has expanded bit by bit.
There are now about 50 electrical power
outlets for caravans and motor homes,
and the site hosts the only lavatory
drainage facility for motor homes in
Flakstad. By the beach you will find a
large floating stage with several boats
for hire, with or without outboard
motors. The reception houses a kiosk and
café with satellite TV and panoramic
view of the camping site and the evening
sky. In the service building you will
find toilets, shower and laundry
course more pairs of hands are needed to
run the site properly. Bjørn Erik (left)
employs his wife Zorisha as well as his
sons Svein Richard (right) and Yngve
throughout the hectic summer season.
Bjør Erik is thinking about upgrading
the site; expand the service building
and perhaps put asphalt on the road
leading up to the site and the space
outside the service building. He might
also build some cabins in the future.
