We have traveled extensively on several continents and never seen the equal. Slight problem with web site saying it was closed but we found it open. Reception was very welcoming and we went off to explore nearby.
On our return we looked at the facilities. Wow! The shower/toilet wetrooms are better than most hotels. I have a particular hatred of showers on campsites with too few hooks. These had 10 per shower room! The water is more than hot and the quality of construction is better than you can get in the UK.
We will be back, even though we had to drive 1500 miles to get here.
I could not hear the road, which has hardly any traffic. The view is better than you can get rough camping in any other country. If you don't like this place then you don't like camping.

Room tip: Try for a fjord side pitch

What a pity that it was fully booked and we couldn't stay there. We had a chance to look into cabin A and it was amazing. Very modern and really well equipped with a great view at an idyllic place. If you read this please book in advance!

Aside from the fact that Sogndal is one of the least interesting towns (although usefully situtated) in the region, this camp site, even though it is a little close to the road, really does have everything. The service facilities are unbelievably good, parrticularly the shower rooms which are very nearly hotel standards! If the weather is kind the fjord-side area is a terrific place to relax. For an evening en-route either west to Lom, east to Bergen or north to the national parks, you should stop at Kjornes.

We found that many of the campgrounds in the Fjords are not actually on a Fjord. Kjornes Camping is. Or that it may be on a body of water but it’s not suitable for swimming. Kjornes has accessible swimming right at the campground, and the bottom is rocky, not muddy. There is a fairly shallow area for young people have fun. By that I mean a 2 year old can stand in the water. It’s cold but, hey, at 1.5 years mine was like a baby seal. The problem was that he wanted me to go in the 50F water with him.

The service building is modern & kept clean. Showers are 10 crowns for 5 minutes and the shower rooms are large with sinks. This place has the hottest water I’ve ever experienced, and it stays hot. Not very European of them, is it? There is a bath/shower room for those up to 7 years which is gratis.

In winter the cabins stay open for the cross-country/downhill skiing in the area.

With WiFi, a fantastic view of the Sognefjord from your campsite, a hiking trail nearby, the town of Sogne an easy 3k bike ride, and hospitable owners, we had to tear ourselves away from this place.

We have stay there at the end of August 2011.
We have rent a little apartment they have on the site.
Very nice and cozy.
The apartment was very clean, with a living room ("salon"), a small room (with a double bed for a couple and a one-over-one two beds for kids - we did not need it), a nice shower room and a little kitchen with everything we needed (we cooked ourselves).
The owners are ready to help you with everything you need, including booking trips, showing you the different possibilities, giving advices, checking the weather, prices of tours, buses timetables... anything you need - they are here for you!
It is about 3 kms from the city of Sogndal. By car, it is 5 minutes away. We were by feet and had a nice 35 minutes walk every morning and back every evening to and from Sogndal, since the buses we needed for different places were from there.
We recommand the place to anyone going there.
But consider that most buses that may take you to tourist sites in the region stop working somewhere at the beginning of September...
