Camping - Piscine "Le Berceau": Camping in Château d'Oex

OK, this campground is in Château d'Oex, about 16 kilometers downstream from Gstaad. In fact, it is in a different canton (Vaud) and a different linguistic region (French). But it is a nice campground with a great swimming pool. And, like Gstaad, there are lots of hiking trails around.

Great pool.

Berg-Camping Heiti: Beautiful Camping just outside Gstaad

Finally we found a really nice campground near Gstaad in the town of Gsteig. The grounds are well-maintained, dogs are allowed and it is near a beatiful small river. The toilets and showers are very clean and well-maintained. And notably compared to the other camping in Gstaad and Saanen it is NOT located next to a high tension power line and railroad track.

Quiet and beautiful. Owners speak German, French or English. Near the Arnesee, Glacier 3000 ski lift, and the towns of Gstaad and Saanen.

Beim Kappeli: More Relaxing Camping in Saanen

This campground is the 2nd furthest from Gstaad (Bellerive is closer) and is in the next nearby town of Saanen. There is a very beautiful path along the Saane river which takes you there (part of the Yehudi Mehunin Wanderweg, actually).

This campground is between the Saane river and the train tracks. But there are many sites that are along the river, so you don't have to be right up against the trains as with the Bellerive.

Cheap and close to Gstaad - relatively quiet in comparison to the Bellerive. There is nothing particularly special about it but it is affordable! (About 7CHF per tent I think).

The river actually is beautiful and I recommend the walk along it (and also a visit to the childrens petting zoo in between Gstaad and Saanen on the river path).

Bellerive Camping: Crackling Electricity and Rumbling Locomotives

Some people think there is no cheap accommodation in Gstaad - well there is. What else would the people of Gstaad do with the land bordered by a river on one side and train tracks on another, with high tension electric lines passing over it? Of course - provide camping!! :-)

OK, it's not that bad, the people who run it are nice and the facilities are clean and always have supplies. I can not complain about that - they were quite nice to us and the people in the campground were also friendly.

But really, watch where you put your tent - you have a choice of being next to the train lines - and I mean NEXT to them with just a tree line separating you (avoid this!!) or the river pathway (dog walkers and joggers go past in the am). No matter what, the high tension electric wires run over your head (you can hear it crackling!)

Anyhow, it was OK for a couple of nights. I think compared to other campgrounds in the world it is pricey, but it is not 'pricey' if you know what I mean. It was still something like $30 US for the weekend (dogs are allowed but there is an extra charge).

I advise you to drink heavily before heading back, and then you will have no problems getting to sleep ;-)

The best spots are taken by people who seem to live there for the summer season in campervans, which is I think why the area for tents is so limited! There are also tiny log cabins which are away from the train and the electricity but we asked about staying in them and apparently they are privately owned. I think if you ask far enough in advance there is a chance you may be able to get one of these.

It's open in Winter time! You can stay here for skiing with a camper van (or tent if you are really macho).

High tension wires overhead, trains which rumble and shake the ground (and a resulting wind vortex which can blow the walls of your tent) starting at about 6am until around 10:30pm (nice fast commuter trains roar by - not just slow tourist ones!).

Tip:
See my advice regarding the campground in nearby Saanen.

none: not for the budget traveler

this place shuts down after the ski season. I went to the local tourist center, located in the center of town, but the only place they could find for me, was not renting out rooms. the open hotel was running either $250.00 USD or $350.00 for the night, i forget which. for me, it didn't matter. too rich for my blood.

Robin Leech, eat your heart out.
