Lake Balaton - Hungary

Does anyone have experience of touring in Hungary, especially Lake Balaton area and is it safe to wild camp? If not any good touring sites?

Appreciate any information please.

Thanks.

Hi,

I do not think you can wild camp in the area. We stayed at a campsite near Siofok and used camping cheques.

Just drove through Hungary last week and travelled right down the top side of the lake, but we were in a car, saw loads of campsites everywhere, the whole area was pretty empty, probably the time of year. At the bottom end of the lake 5 kms north is a town called Heviz, which has a thermally heated lake, definitely worth going to and the town is nice and small and neat. Hungary is not an eastern block country anymore and we felt totally safe the whole time we were there. Budapest is a must preferably stay outside and bus or train in. But a lovely city to visit. If you want more info, come back to me and I will try to help.

We were at the campsite in Heviz at the end of February and really enojed it (it's in the database). They accept ACSI card - 12 EUR. In the town we saw two signs for stellplatz as well.
We saw more campsites but they were still closed. Didn't see anyone wildcamping, though.
Regards,
Cilka

got bitten to death at the western end of the lake in June last year. Had to leave after one night. Hot and humid conditions were perfect for them just then.

Hi we are looking for where to go on Lake Balaton too.
We are at Camping Panorama near Heviz/ Keszthely at the moment and its a lovely site but need to move on now as been here 6 nights.
Do we go North of the lake from here or to the south side?
Can anyone recommend good campsites that are not all singing and dancing as we just want a nice site in a nice area without paying through the nose for things we do not require such as entertainment etc.
Would rather stay on campsites nearer the lake now or where we can walk out at night to see things. Which towns should we visit too? Any advice great fully received. Thanks

Try Balatonfured, a town with a bit of character and a campsite right on the lake.

I'll try to find the info.

Also a nice lakeside site at Revfulop.
