Ipolygate Camping Szob - Camping

The beginning

When we bought the 6000 square-meter big land in Szob at the bank of the Danube in 2006, we did not think that once we would open our own camping here. First we tried to sell the land as a building site for decades without success. Afterwards we brainstormed about how we could take the advantage of the site with a breath-taking view and central location. In the end, the brilliant idea of the camping came to our minds out of the blue.

We started to form the green field in 2009 by cutting out the dangerous and old poplars and by planting new trees such as elms, white birches, lindens and other decor plants. In addition, soil replacement, soil refilling and turfing also took place.

The requalification, planning and licensing was quite a long process. We started the construction in 2013, though we did not expect the flood of that year, which was the biggest that has ever occurred in the region. As a result, we could continue the building operations with a three- week delay, and finally, the public building of the camping was built up by the end of August.

At the ground floor of the public building you can find the following facilities: reception, toilet and shower for disabled people, chemical toilet, sink with hot and cold water, microwave, cooker and fridge. On the first floor you can find the shower for women and men, the toilet, the lavatory-and nappy-changing stations.

The acquirement of different licenses also took a lot of time, thus we could open our gates only in 30. 05. 2014.

Fortunately we had quite a lot of guests right in the first season, some of them booked a place in advance, some others simply popped into the camping. Most of our guests were the Hungarian but some Australian, Canadian, Russian, Polish, Czech, German, Austrian, Slovakian, Dutch and French tourists also visited the camping. From all these nations our guests have written some nice and encouraging words into the visitor’s book.
