 Campsite Sam, location excellent for visit to Salzburg. Bus tickets + Salzburg card can be purchased from reception. Bus stop short walk from site. Shower/toilet block clean adequate. Could have walked to a Lidl, quite close by. Also pizzeria close by but didn't eat there.

Only bad comment would be the price. 32 per night + extra for wifi. This is a comparison between previous European stop overs in different countries. This most expensive site! Nothing extra offered to compensate for higher pricing.

 To Find Site:- Leave A1 Wien autobahn at junction 288 and follow Salzburg Nord signs. This road loops round to the left. Immediately under railway bridge prepare to turn left at traffic lights. As you pass Renault Garage on right go into left-hand lane at traffic lights to go straight across passing SPAR supermarket on right. Follow this road under railway bridge and now take second right into Samstrasse and the campsite is almost immediately on the right. The campsite is well signed from the A1 autobahn. In the low season reception is closed between midday and 4. 00pm, however if the notice is displayed you are invited to find a pitch and book in later. There is no off road parking outside the site.

This was our second visit to Camping Nord Sam, albeit the first time was 24 years ago. The campsite is situated in an urban environment so visitors should expect some noise from the adjacent high level railways line although this is only intermittent. I suspect Camping Nord Sam is more of a short stay site in order to visit Salzburg, especially for those not wanting to use their own transport, rather than a long stay holiday destination. There are approaching a hundred pitches all of which are separated by hedges and trees. They all vary in size although none could be described as large. Most are long enough to accept units up to about eight metres long but not particularly wide so perhaps caravan and awning but with the car across the front of the pitch. Access roads are not particularly wide so reversing requires some care for longer units. Some of the pitches are smaller and only suitable for tents of perhaps small camper vans. Pitch surface is grass with added grit to give a firmer footing. Electric points are dotted around the site and use CEE17 blue connectors and are rated at 10 amps. From some pitches a long lead may be required and in certain circumstances it might be necessary to run the lead across the site road. There are a few water points on the site but they are all positioned at the top of the site nearer to reception. The only grey water disposal point is at the motorhome service point, this is also where the chemical toilet emptying is located. The facility block is situated under reception. It has recently been refurbished to a high standard. It has seated toilets and toilet paper provided. It could be a bit stretched if the site were full. Reception has a lot of local information and they also have a small seated area where drinks are served and also continental breakfast and also sell a few essentials. There is site wide WiFi available at a modest cost, each module is limit to a total data usage of 1GB rather than a timed period. For young children there is a small adventure style playground. The site also has a small swimming pool. Whilst Camping Nord Sam is not in the ACSI scheme it does offer a small discount, depending on season, for card holders.

It is very easy and quick to get into the centre of Salzburg from the campsite. Bus tickets can be purchased from Reception which gives access to all buses for 24 hours. They run every fifteen minutes on weekdays, every twenty minutes on Saturday and every thirty minutes on Sundays. The 23 service takes you to the Hauptbahnhof from where can either walk or hop on another service to the Zentrum. If you intend to do a lot during your visit then it might be worth considering the Salzburg Card. For food shopping there is a handy SPAR supermarket about a ten minute walk away. For eating out there is, of course, a massive choice in the City Centre. Locally there is a small family run pizzeria, recommended by reception, a short walk from the site. The daughter of the family speaks some English if you need help. It does Austrian dishes as well. We thought it good value.

 We stayed here for 5 nights (2 adults, 2 kids, one family tent, using public transport to get around). Salzburg isn't a huge city, but nonetheless the campsite is well connected to the main train station and city centre; bus stop all of 2 minutes away.

The campsite is very attractive indeed, with hedge-screening used extensively throughout. Good privacy, plenty of shading and tall trees, and on a sloping site. Washing machines, dryers, and toilet block, all of which are kept very clean. Small shop, but well-stocked fridge with beer and wine which can be taken - for an additional fee - on the terrace. Wifi connection is a bit iffy (best to use on the terrace, where the connection is strongest). Bikes for rent. One of the main attractions has to be the swimming pool, which is great; clean, maintained, and fun rather than raucous. Staff speak several languages, and as a family team the rapport across the site is excellent, with all issues swiftly dealt with.

Highly recommended campsite, a little more expensive than others, but the pool and the general ambience/friendliness/professionalism more than make up for it.

2 small tips - a decent shop with fresh bread is about 100 yards down the road on 'right exiting' the site; another 50 yards you come to an excellent butcher and delicatessen. Best of all, however, a really wonderful Italian restaurant - D & S - is only another 50 yards beyond the butcher. Service is very pleasant, though a wee bit slow. But we ate here 2 nights and the food was simply excellent. Someone in the kitchen really knows how to prepare, cook and present food. Almost worth staying at this campsite for the proximity to the restaurant alone! Great camping venue, which should appeal to all age groups.
