Rokosjøen Camping is a family-run campsite run by the couple Sævar Hansson and Valdis Brynjolsdottir from Iceland. The campsite is 20 hectares and is located in quiet surroundings with beautiful nature around, right by Rokosjøen in Løten municipality.
Only 500 meters away is the municipal beach Haverbekkvika with beach volleyball court, barbecue and campfire place.
Right next to the square you will find old church ruins that can be dated back to the 1200th century.
Rondanestien, a path that goes all the way from Oslo to Dovrefjell passes right past the campsite.
It only takes 8 minutes to drive to Løten center; here you will find grocery stores, pharmacies, liquor stores, restaurants, the bank, the train station and clothing store etc. Larger towns such as Elverum and Hamar are less than half an hour's drive away. We are located only an hour's drive from Gardermoen, an hour and a half from Oslo and Charlottenberg in Sweden.
The forest area offers both berry and mushroom picking. Vesle Rokosjøen is in the immediate vicinity, there is a nature reserve with lots of wild animals and birds.
We have canoe and boat rentals. In the paddle trips you have the opportunity to experience the magic of nature with a lack of bird species in the area and a beaver hut etc.
We offer campsites on an annual, seasonal basis, as well as drop-in throughout the year. We also have cabins without running water.
We are working on renovations and have now built a new sanitary facility and renovated 2 of the cabins. In the spring of 2021, we will refurbish the café, which will have many seats both inside and out. We will serve hot food, light dishes, coffee and accessories already in the summer of 2021. We have a license to serve alcohol in all alcohol groups.
We will rent out company and meet locals from the spring of 2021
Our cabins come in different sizes and can accommodate either 2, 3 or 5 guests. The cabins are without running water, it is approx. 200 meters to brand new sanitary facility. Shower is free. The cabins are equipped with either a dining table or a sofa, a small kitchen - as well as a coffee machine, hob, toaster, kettle, plates, glasses, cups and cutlery. Final cleaning is included in the rental price.
The forest area around the campsite offers a number of great experiences such as mushroom walks, berry picking, meditation, as well as a large number of trails that are both short and long.
Mosjømarka is a great hiking area with lots of open pine forest, bog and pond. Due to its central location and its myriad of cultural monuments, this is an excellent tour that contains information boards along several of the trails. It takes around 1 to 1,5 hours to walk from the campsite - if you do not want to walk it is possible to get there by car or bicycle.
Right next to the campsite is, among other things, Oset Kapell, which you can read more about here https://www.norske-kirker.net/home/hedmark/oset-kapell/ - the same goes for the church ruins on Rokoberget: https://www.norske-kirker.net/home/hedmark/rokoberget-kirkeruin/
The trip up to Rokoberget takes just under an hour on foot and once you are there you have a beautiful view of the entire Rokosjøen - the lake is rich in pike, perch, and other small fish, making it an ideal place for fishing. From the campsite you can rent rowing boats and we offer a free life jacket.
If you are in the mood for a relaxed day at the beach, Haverbekkvika is only 500 meters from the campsite - this is the municipality's public bathing beach that offers swimming on the beach, bathing jetty that is especially suitable for the disabled and children, barbecue areas and beach volleyball court.
