Bakkaåno Camping & Gjestegard

Bakkaåno is an idyllic year-round family campsite on Sør-Vestlandone, between Egersund and Flekkefjord, along the North Sea Road. Established in 1993 by Erna and Eivind Urdal and after 20 years Birgitte Urdal (daughter) and husband Martin J. Skadberg took over the operation of the campsite in 2014, and runs the family business.

Our products range from unique experiences to simpler accommodations; you can spend the night in the silo or other parts of the old farmhouse or small and large camping cabins.

We have pitches and a tent area and two sanitation facilities. We also have year-round places between hills and mountains facing the river and the surrounding area. We also have banqueting and conference rooms with the possibility of package prices. We have approved kitchens and can offer pre-order dining. Welcome to a scenic campsite for the whole family in a friendly atmosphere.

The campsite is right on the Sokndals river and nature has given us a lovely swimming spot. Well adapted for both the small and the large. A "local" has built his house by the river, but he only comes out at night for guardians like to sleep during the day.

We have a playground with various appliances, volleyball court, soccer field and trampoline.

The Sokndals River is a popular fishing river in Dalane. Fish species: Salmon, sea urchins, stream oaks. Eel fishing is not allowed.

We have VIPPS as a payment solution and our number is: 527648

Pet park

A small collection of animals roam the zoo. The chickens and pigs give the little feeling of being in the country on a farm and children and adults think it is great to have some food for them.


Small cabins: The cabins are 14m2 one-bedroom cabins that sleep 2-3 people (bunk bed with double bed downstairs). The cabins have cooking facilities and a fridge. Walking distance to shared shower, toilet and water fountain 50-100m. These cabins are our most popular and most affordable accommodation option on our premises. With many tourists both from home and abroad we have put a Norwegian mark on the cabins by painting famous Norwegian adventure pictures on the wall and named each cabin after adventure. Possibility of renting linen and purchasing of laundry.

5-man cabins: The 5-man cabins are 20m2, one-room cabins for 5 people with cooking facilities and refrigerator. The walking distance to the sanitary facilities is 50m. The cabins are called Morning Sun and Evening Sun but have mostly sun all day. The cabins are located on a small gorge with a nice view. Bed linen available for hire.

6 Man's Cabin: Solhaugen is located on a mound and has a small garden plot overlooking the river. The cottage is 40 square meters and has two bedrooms (bunk bed with one and a half beds downstairs) and a loft and private bathroom. The cabin has cooking facilities, microwave, in-water and fridge. There is TV in the cottage with connected RiksTV. Bed linen available for hire.


The silo consists of two small apartments, "Silostovo" and "Silo Loft". The rooms in the silo are our most popular accommodation in the guest house with its rare shape and exciting character. The apartments have cooking facilities and a fridge. The rooms are suitable for 3/4 persons. Private entrance to both rooms and veranda with morning sun (silo loft) and afternoon sun (silostuo). Possibility of renting linen and purchasing of laundry.

The barn

The old barn on the garden has been restored to three rooms, two bathrooms with a living room with TV. The individual rooms have cooking facilities, a sink and a breakfast table in addition to the sleeping areas. A long common veranda with table is found outside the rooms and provides a nice view of the campsite. Inside the common area there is also a microwave, coffee maker and kettle. The barn is the largest part of our guest garden, which is the unique product we offer our guests. The three rooms are great for groups going to the same event or a large family that needs more rooms and a little more space. Rates are per room. Possibility of renting linen and purchasing of laundry.


The barn was used in the old days for winter storage of hay for the animals. Today, the high island is divided into two floors with banquet rooms downstairs and rooms upstairs. In Løo we can offer two separate rooms with private bathroom with shower and toilet suitable for 2-4 persons. Each room has cooking facilities, kitchenware and a fridge. A large shared terrace with seating and morning and afternoon sun provides a great opportunity for outdoor dining in the summer.

Banquet and conference rooms

If you are planning a company or a conference, visit Bakkaåno and look at the possibilities for a special experience. We have a number of function rooms we rent out for all kinds of occasions. If you really turn on the large drum, all the premises can be combined and also accommodation right outside the door. We have restored the entire old operating building and are now focusing on accommodation and company and conferences. We have an approved kitchen and accept orders for smaller groups, or kitchens can be rented. We also offer projector and canvas. Possibility of package prices for accommodation, premises and dining.
