The campsite in Stykkishólmur (the capital of the West) is excellent. It is a big campsite and the facilities are very good. They just added new bathroom facilities and two (outside) showers. But the swimming pool is next to the campsite so I went there to use the showers. The swimming pool is very good, I recommend you pay it a visit while in Stykkishólmur, it has got jacuzzies with warm sea-water amongst other things.
The campsite is owned by a golf-club called Mostri, and you go to their golf-hut to pay. One night is ISK 900 per person, but the third night is free. I stayed an extra night in Stykkishólmur because of that and changed the location of my tent every night to make it more interesting as there are so many various places for tents there.
At the golf-hut there are good facilites as well, toilets and a washing machine, a lot of information leaflets and the staff is very helpful. There you can also use the Internet, there are three computers there.
The campsite is open from May 15 - September 15.
The campsite is next to a swimming pool and Bónus supermarket is only a few minutes away from the campsite. I would recommend this campsite to anyone. But I noticed that mostly Icelanders stayed there, I saw only a few tents with tourists.
This camping is located just when you enter the village at your right hand site. It is in between the perol station and the golfcourse. It is quite large and features shower/toilets/sinks and laundry/dryer at the golf club house. Across from the petrol station is a bakery that comes recommended by lonely planet but is was closed on sunday morning. You can pay at the tourist office but if you are too late a warden comes by at night and in the morning.
its location allows to take the early to and/or the late ferry from the west fjords. the ferry terminal is just down the road. We did a day trip to the west fjords with this camping as our base.
