Welcome to Bjorsbo Forest and Lake Hideaways
This is a camping in the west parts of Småland, Sweden. The area is well known for its beautiful scenery, rolling terrain and many small forest lakes. You can come here to rent rack space for a night, a week, a season or year around. There are also a couple of simple cottages for rent during summer.
At Forets & lake life is simple and close to nature in respect for others and the environment. Here you can roam freely in the woods, picking blueberries, cranberries, raspberries and mushrooms. You can swim, enjoy our wood-fired sauna and socialize or enjoy the tranquility.
It is also possible to rent a rowboat, go fishing, go horse back riding in the woods, or simply just be!
The surrounding area has much to discover, and maybe you will find “your own” favorite spot in the woods; an exciting bottomless lake, a secret path..
In the middle of the campsite there is a barbecue and if you want to grill, just light up a bonfire. The same goes with our wood-fired sauna, which is down by the lake.
There is a rowboat for rent if you wish to explore the lake. Here you can get both the old pikeperch and pike. There are more fishing lakes nearby and we are happy to help with advice. Dogs are of course welcome and have their very own section of the beach to swim at. Approximately 1, 5 km from Forest & lake you will find the Sonakull Stables that offers trail riding in the woods on beautiful Haflinger horses.
Within walking or biking distance, about 2 km away on a winding road through the woods, lays the small town of Kulltorp. There is a general store where you can buy most of the daily needed groceries. The towns of Gnosjo, Varnamo and Gislaved are about 10-30 km away with a wide selection of shops, restaurants, pharmacies, hospitals, liquor store, etc.
A few kilometers away you will find the Store Mosse, Sweden’s largest wilderness south of Lapland, with many beautiful hiking trails. Nearby you also find the western town of High Chaparral, a striking event for the whole family. The Swedish Glass kingdom or the town of traditional Swedish polkagrisar; Gränna, the island of Visingsö in Vättern and The Astrid Lindgren world are solid day trips for those who want to experience even more of Swedish culture.
Forest & lake Hideaways is a place for nature experiences and recovery for both young, old, couples and families with children.
By the lake clothing is optional which means it is possible to choose between swimming and sunbathing naked if you want, or with clothes if you prefer. The important thing is the attitude and tolerances towards other people and of course the closeness to nature. We believe the choice to swim and sunbathe nude at Forest & lake is part of the experience of nature and an expression of acceptance of self and others.
At Forest & lake you are welcome to be whoever you are. You can hang out in the company of good friends, but will also need to respect each person’s private sphere and those who choose to withdraw into solitude and retreat. It’s all guests duty and responsibility to protect these family-oriented values.
Come as you are, be who you want to be!
