The campsite has 11 tents that can accommodate four people each, all set up in a grove on the edge of a small stream. Each tent is equipped with mattresses, blankets and pillow. Apart from the 11 tents, there are several areas for families and groups of friends who want to camp with their own tents.

The tents are always kept clean to prevent mosquitoes and other insects from disturbing the guests. A sit-out area outside the tents make it very convenient for guests to enjoy chill evenings around the warmth of a campfire.
