It’s been many years since the British lords were being rowed around in Mandalselva in search of big salmon. But we realize that both English lords and big wild salmons enjoyed the rapids by Mjåland Camping.

Mandal is the wild salmon city. A town with salmon in the municipal weapon and with the lifeblood, Mandalselva, which has a salmon-driving stretch of 48 km. In the last ten years, Mandalselva has been one of Norway’s ten best salmon rivers.

Mjåland Camping is located on the banks of Mandalselva. You can go on vacation with the best fishing opportunities in subarea 3 and short distance to the entire Mandalselva. We have plenty of room for caravans, campers and tents. We rent out caravans of various sizes and have a cabin with all facilities. There is also room for more people who want to rent a permanent place.

Opening hours from May 15th to September 15th.


We have salmon enthusiasts arriving from Norway, Germany, Denmark and several European countries. Other fishermen who make fun at the campsite and who like to share their knowledge of the river and passion for fishing with others. Mjåland Camping has fishing areas that are universally designed close to the campsite. Cabins and sanitary facilities are adapted for disabled guests.

It is less than an hour’s drive to many of southern Norway´s sights and family attractions, and a short distance to shopping centers and southern Norway’s finest beaches.

Fishing season lasts from June 1st to August 31st. In good fishing, the fishing season will be extended to September15th. Fishing licenses are sold at Marnar Salmon Center, located 2 km from the campsite. Campers can pre-order fishing cards for zones 3 and 4 in Mandalselva so that they are ready on arrival.
