Right at the entrance to Stockholm’s southern suburbs and only 20 minutes from downtown Stockholm, we find Flottsbro camping in a scenic setting. In addition to spots for camping, this site has cabins available for rent. The campsite is located right at the Flottsbro slope and has a restaurant, a popular swimming spot, and trails for jogging, hiking, and mountain biking.
GALÖ HASBAD CAMPING
Gålö Havsbad in Stockholm’s southern archipelago is a 35-minute car ride from Stockholm. Its proximity to the ocean and beautiful nature reserve hiking trails makes this a place for unwinding and recovering. Bikes, rowboats, pedal cars and boats are available for rent.
Right at the Flaten Nature Reserve and a few minutes’ walking distance to Flatenbadet, we find Citycampstockholms camping, formerly Flatenbadets camping. Its proximity to bus and subway transportation means that you can easily get to downtown Stockholm. Flatenbadet Camping has places for tents and RVs/campers with power hookups. Next door is Ställplats Stockholm with automatic check-in and check-out for campers.
Bredängs campsite is beautifully situated in Sätra Nature Reserve. Bredängsbadet, which is 350 meters (some 380 yards) from the campsite, is a family-friendly sandy beach, with a diving tower for the brave, and a place for a refreshing dip in Lake Mälaren. From Bredängs campsite, it is close to Kungens Kurva, where you’ll find such places as IKEA and Heron City. Bredängs subway station is 700 meter (some 766 yards) from the campsite and from there it takes less than 20 minutes to get to downtown Stockholm.
Långholmen’s RV Camping is the only campsite in downtown Stockholm. On this old prison island, there are 80 places for RVs (no campers or tents) in a more central location than any other campsite in Stockholm. The RV campsite is a 600-meter (656-yard) stroll away from the Hornstull subway station, stores, and a wide selection of restaurants. A scenic stroll along Söder Mälarstrand will take you to Gamla Stan. For the strong-limbed (or the stubborn), we recommend hiking to the top of Västerbron to enjoy its absolutely fantastic view of Riddarfjärden and Stockholm toward the archipelago.
Located in Sollentuna, 15 km (some 9 mi) north of central Stockholm, you’ll find Rösjöbaden Camping. As the name suggests, the campsite is located at Rösjön with a swimming area with a waterslide, minigolf, and canoes for rent. Rösjöbaden Camping is easy to reach by car, bus, subway and commuter train.
Klubbensborgs Camping is located in a fantastic setting near Mälarens beach. The area around the campsite is filled with 1700s and 1800s properties listed in the national register. Uddvillan is a café that serves coffee and lunch in the summer. The campsite has a simpler standard – you come here for the fantastic settings! Mälarhöjden, the nearest subway station, will take you straight into the city center in 20 minutes.
It takes about 1 hour by car or commuter train to get to Nickstabadets Camping in Nynäshamn. The campsite is located near the popular bathing resort Nickstaviken with its sandy beaches, diving tower, water slide, minigolf, kiosk, and grill restaurant. The nearest town is Nynäshamn and its habor has regular ferry departures to destinations such as Gotland, Poland, and Latvia.
