First Camp Norsjø – Telemark

Welcome to First Camp Norsjø - Telemark, the place where camping and water activities meet in wonderful surroundings!

With its incredible location by the Norsjø Sea and the combination of mountains, nature and swimming, this is a place where both holiday enthusiasts and locals have gathered for many years. Here there is always a teeming population with full activity in spring, summer and autumn.

At the campsite, you can stay in a cabin, glamping tent or camping site with a motorhome, caravan or tent. Here you live a stone's throw from Norsjø - close to the beach no matter where you live. Many cabins and places also have a magical view of the lake.

If you appreciate a fast-paced holiday, you will enjoy Norsjø! With several activities, water sports and proximity to excursion destinations and sights, it is impossible to get bored.

At the campsite there is mini golf, a playground, bouncy cushions and not least several rental activities, such as canoeing and SUP (Stand Up Paddling).

Norsjø Cable Park

Norsjø Kabelpark is a great experience, for young and old. It holds Norway's only one full size cable.


If you fancy a day trip, you will find several places to visit nearby. The trips across the Telemark Canal leave directly from the pier in the area, and in 20 minutes by car you will reach Scandinavia's largest water park, Bø Sommarland, a very popular place for families with children.
