We loved this site but only stayed 3 nights for reasons I will explain. We couldn't fault it. The owner is very friendly, helpful and speaks good though fast English mixed with a little German! He is quite a character. He appears to do everything himself and is always available. The toilets/washrooms are spotless and very well appointed. Nothing has been forgotten - plenty of mirrors, hooks, shelves, hairdryers and lashings of hot water - the attention to detail is amazing. The washing up area too - there is a microwave and cooker as well as cloths, drainers etc. Etc. He has forgotten absolutely nothing to help make your stay comfortable! On arrival, there is a free bottle of beer from the local brewery and a display of bread rolls to help you choose what to order daily. He gives out the KonusKarte for free travel on trains and buses. Around the site there are plenty of water taps, electric connections and the tourers are separated from the permanents which do need a bit of TLC but don't worry, you don't have to see them. There is a pretty brook running through. The walk to town is fine, but Alpirsbach is a long town (with a Lidl) so it is considerably further to walk from the beginning to the end where the station is. The homeward trip is all uphill and very steep though we found it easier to use the main road instead of the walk through the forest. It is also steep to reach the bus stop which as oldies we found difficult. The owner has timetables available. In fact it was the steepness of access for buses and/or town that caused us to move on. We try to leave the motorhome on site when possible and use public transport. That was another problem. We had our little dog with us who is very sociable and friendly but each bus driver we encountered asked if she had a muzzle and as she didn't we got a very bad attitude although nobody refused us. It made the experience of taking buses somewhat uncomfortable. We made enquiries about perhaps a law that we were not aware of but were assured that there is no such requirement, just difficult drivers. The dog has to be paid for incidentally but not expensive. The site is very level with very easy driving access. We took a train to Freudenstadt which contrary to another review, we found very pretty around the huge market place - the biggest in Germany. A waitress not only brought water out for the dog, but biscuits too. The station however is quite a distance from the town and again we had trouble with a bus driver, though we discovered that there are 2 stations there so perhaps there would have been a rail connection. We took a bus back to site as walking back downhill from the bus stop was easy. We would definitely have stayed longer but for the bus drivers attitude to the dog, and the difficulty for us (personally) accessing the town/station etc. Younger and fitter folks would not have those problems and so for peace and quiet, ease of access, availability of public transport and spotlessly clean and friendly surroundings, this is the place to go.

We stayed here last summer for 10 days and had a very enjoyable holiday in the Black Forest.

The campsite owner was very friendly and helpful and spoke very good English. We rang up to enquire about availability and were told they always have space for tents. Lo and behold we arrived and were given a choice of pitches in different areas of the site. The site is alongside the local small river, and you can pitch tents on the bank and there are also pitches away from the river. You never felt really hemmed in because of the layout of the site with several smaller areas rather than rows and rows of pitches in lines. There was a nice mixture of nationalities on site (including German, Dutch and some other Brits).

The washblock facilities were excellent, some of the best I've seen. There were free showers, toilets, sinks in cubicles, sinks not in cubicles, free hair dryers, mirrors, all very clean and without queues in the second half of August. The washing up facilities were also very good, indoors with lots of hot water. There was also a small two ring hob you could use if you wanted to (we didn't, so can't really comment further).

The campsite reception also had a small shop selling basic provisions. You could order rolls, pretzels etc the night before to collect the next morning, which was great. There is also a small bar/restaurant area, where we had a nice meal on our last night, and from where we got takeaway chips earlier in the week (excellent, and two portions would serve three people).

There is a small children's playground at one end of the campsite, but we didn't investigate it.

The town of Alpirsbach has a brewery, and on arrival we were each given a free bottle of the local beer. Presumably this is to encourage you to drink it for the rest of your stay, and it worked. You can buy the beer in the local supermarket for about 1 euro a bottle, or chilled from the campsite fridge for just over a euro.

With your tourist tax you get free travel on all the local public transport with the Black Forest Card. We found this an easy way to get around, and more relaxing than driving everywhere after the drive to get there. The only thing to watch out for is Sunday, when there is a much reduced service, so we went out in the car.

The bus stop is 5-10 minutes’ walk from the campsite. There is a train station in Alpirsbach, which is about 45 minutes’ walk from the campsite. The town itself is probably only about half an hour’s walk from the campsite. Alpirsbach itself is quite a nice small town, and there are shops and supermarkets for food shopping.

We went as far as Freiburg for a day out using the public transport, and that took a couple of hours each way. Otherwise we mostly just went to local towns and explored and did some walking. We noticed quite a lot of cycle routes marked in the local area.

We have spent four weeks here. For the first two weeks we enjoyed glorious weather, but have had rain every day since. However, despite the ground now being quite muddy, the facilities are still spotless. The owner, is friendly and very helpful and made phone calls to find answers for us when he didn't have the information.

The food he serves in the restaurant is of better quality, and is cheaper, than any of the meals we had when out and about.

Fresh bread, rolls and pretzels can be ordered up to 8pm the previous night and are available from 8am. The shop has some essentials - which comes in handy when the town shops are closed. There also electric and gas barbecues available for use free of charge. No charcoal grills are allowed as it's a Nature Park. The washing up area also has a two plate gas stove and a microwave for camper's use.

The whole Black Forest is beautiful, with very wiggly, windy roads. Drivers are, generally, very courteous. Our favourite town was Triberg. It's touristy but you have to buy your souvenirs somewhere! Be aware that the shops in the Black Forest all close between 12 and 2pm every day and on Wednesday afternoons and Sundays. The exceptions are Lidl, Penny Markt supermarkets.

We spent a lot of time in Freiberg at the Keidel Therme. We found 4 hours was a good amount of time, there is a lot to do in the different pools.

This campsite is situated more or less in the middle of the Black Forest, so is convenient for visiting north or south. We would recommend this quiet, clean campsite to anyone.

I am just back from my second stay at this great little site, and it is as good as ever. As stated, you are welcomed with a beer from the local brewery, and as if was my second trip, the owner recognised me from last year, and gave me a 10% discount which was nice. I camped outside the main block this year (was only staying for one night) and there was no problems with smells, and all was quiet by 10:00 as per the rules. Great little restaurant with a nice, but limited menu and clean ablutions. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Brilliant site, excellent showers etc. Greeted on check in with a free cool beer from the local brewery. Nice short walk through woods or road to a very clean town where there is a lidl supermarket with it's own bread oven. Or you can order fresh bread etc from reception every day.The site has its own restaurant/bar.There is a small shallow stream running through the site for children to play in, also there is a small playground. Free wifi around the site for which you have to sign an agreement not to download illegal stuff etc. I would have no hesitation in going back to alpirsbach.

Rather mixed views about this site, but overall can be recommended. Access to the site is easy, just outside the rather pretty (off the main road anyway) village of Alpirsbach. Try to avoid being given a pitch adjacent to the main building – the smell from the waste bins can be noticeable, and these pitches alongside the river are in shade from late afternoon. Some of the statics are in need of some TLC, but the touring pitches are fine. Sanitary facilities are excellent, with the best showers I have experienced anywhere! The owner has a personality of his very own – quite helpful and efficient with very good English, but comes over as a bit brusque. This is the only place I have ever had to sign an agreement that I would not access anything illegal on the WIFI! It’s free and works throughout the site, but spasmodically. You are given a couple of free beers on arrival, courtesy of the local brewery, which can be visited by appointment. I particularly liked the ‘dunkel’. You can buy the local walks map from reception, but this being the Black Forest, expect a lot of the walks to be on very shaded forest tracks. Signposting is generally good, but occasionally there are lapses such as where a new road has been built. For cyclists there is something for everyone – if you like strenuous hilly terrain there is lots, but there is also an excellent downhill (largely) ride along the valley for as far as you want to go. The plus point for this is that you can ride the train back for free! Places we liked – Schilltach and the open air museum near Gutach. We didn’t however think much of Freudenstadt – it is remarkably clean - no chewing gum on the pavements here! – but has no character. Neither the site nor local supermarkets accept credit cards – it’s a German ‘feature’!
