Reviewer: Campervan Mam 3 reviews from this member

Firstly, don't panic about the mountains! This site, although well into Switzerland, is reached through a series of tunnels then long flat roads before about 2 miles of windy, rather than steep road - our 40-year-old campervan managed fine and this is a tourist resort with buses travelling to and from it. The location is stunning, the air and water are fresh and you get to drive through the valley before reaching the campsite.

The pitches for caravans are concrete grids in a tight orderly fashion with ehu etc. We were offered one of these for our campervan but insisted on a pitch on the tent field which was more spacious, open and had views of the mountains rather than the next-door unit. At first we were told we couldn't have a tent pitch and had to point out that there were other campervans on the field. Despite there being several ehu pitches free throughout our stay we were told we couldn't have one, so we went without, using the little stream that flows through the field to chill drinks.

The facilities on this site are fabulous, though there were often queues for toilets and washing up. Tent campers may wish to try the indoor facilities at the back of the hotel that seemed much more plentiful, though not as luxurious. There is a camper's lounge (cosy kitchen/diner) with loads of board games, though this was booked out when we wanted to use it and we hadn't known booking it was an option.

The play area and rafting lake were great and my 10-year-old daughter loved the evening kids' club, especially as the fun crew spoke English to her - a welcome relief for her after a couple of weeks of trying to learn a new language every few days (in Switzerland there are 4 languages, depending on how close you are to neighbouring countries). There is a great hotel pool that you can pay for. Expensive, but worth a try.

You will be given tourist cards on your arrival* that give discounts for lots of local things, including the hotel pool and a free bus to town (might save you 15 minutes walk) that does a round trip in about half an hour if you just want to get your bearings. You will need to pick up a leaflet from a display in reception about free family and kids events (disappointingly these weren't handed out on arrival) available with the tourist card. Different events on different days, eg on a Wednesday there were free toboggan rides. You could pay 17chf for each adult for a cable car ride (with tourist card discount, though the lady who served us didn't seem familiar and had to read the small print, and free kids) or walk winding paths (I think the sign said 2 hours). Whatever you do, when you get to where the toboggan rides are, there's loads of free stuff for the kids to do and views are just spectacular. Three toboggan rides each - brilliant fun.

*They don't tell you, but you will be charged for the tourist card at the end of your stay, so make the most of it! But this is not an expensive place to stay. The vignette for driving in Switzerland is £29 for a year that you pay for at the border and the site was very reasonable: £83 for 3 nights including the tourist card and refuse collection (don't know why they feel the need to put this on the bill as it's not optional).

Supermarkets are more expensive than at home, but you are camping - take your own! We bought pizzas in the hotel one lunchtime as it was raining and the bus stops running over lunchtime. Two pizzas to share and drinks came to 22chf (less than £20).

Lastly, if you need to do any of that boring washing, for example, if husband manages to tip said rafts, while he and daughter are fully clothed with coats etc, the washing machines and driers, in a large drying room, are the cheapest I've ever seen.

Please visit this place. You will not regret it.

Only spent a couple of nights here but could easily have spent a whole week, there is so much to do and see in this lovely valley. Site was well ordered and clean with the usual late-night noise ban. The toilet/wash block was not very new but was typically spotless and warm with excellent facilities - so clean that my partner felt moved to take a photo!

Lots of local walks, from easy to as hard as you want, extensive cable car system for sightseeing. The town has a supermarket and plenty of shops and restaurants. If you want to try something unusual, take the cable car halfway up the mountain and take a 'Trotti bike' down (actually a giant scooter) - great fun and the views en route are nothing short of spectacular. Will definitely re-visit.

This very nice site is attached to the Hotel Eienwaeldli, on the outskirts of Engelberg.

We received a very warm welcome, in English, at the reception. There is a good shop selling a variety of groceries, wines and spirits, fresh bread and fresh fruit and vegetables.

The flat motorhome and caravan pitches are on a concrete grid overlayed with grass. This is very effective, as it looks like grass but drains well Ė best of both worlds! The camping field is flat and well-manicured, with marked out pitches for those requiring electrical hook-ups.

The modern washrooms are excellent Ė the showers (1 Swiss Franc) can be used by either sex, but the toilets and private washbasins are separate. Also, they were heated when we visited in July which we appreciated as it was, sadly, cold and wet when we were there. There is a separate toilet block for campers, which looks even more modern.

There is a laundry with washing machines and tumble dryers. There is also a drying room, which was well-used whilst we were there!

For an additional fee, you can use the hotel swimming pool and sauna Ė we didnít, so canít comment on these facilities. WiFi is available in the hotel for a small fee. There is a cafeteria open all day and a restaurant which only opens in the evening.

There is a childrenís play area, alongside a shallow pool which is used for paddling and boating. Take care though, as there is a fast-flowing river alongside the site.

The road up to Engelberg from Luzern winds a bit, but itís wide and used by coaches, so no need to worry about towing. We didnít see much of the town, which was bigger than we expected. There is a free shuttle bus between the town and the hotel, which runs about every 30 minutes.

There are plenty of marked walking routes, both in the valley and in the high meadows, which can be accessed by cable car. Youíll get a guest card which gives discounts at various places, when you check-in. You can also get a map of the walking routes at reception.

The site can be pre-booked, with a 50 Swiss Franc deposit (we sent cash by international recorded delivery, and this worked fine). One point to note is that when you check-in, youíre given a book of 50 Swiss Franc tokens in lieu of your deposit. These coupons can only be spent at the site/hotel (shop/restaurant/sauna etc) Ė this didnít prove a problem for us, as we just stocked up in the shop, but just make sure you spend them as your deposit doesnít get deducted from your bill.

This site is thoroughly recommended. We only stayed 2 nights, but would have been quite happy to stay a week or so.
