The campsite is now closed for the season

A camp site without any seasonal pitches

​Skyttehusets Outdoor Camp is located between Silkeborg and Ry near Himmelbjerget, at the banks of the beautiful Silkeborg lakes in a lovely beech forest. Here at our cosy campsite we offer various accommodation options for tents, motorhomes and caravans. We also offer rentals of luxury cabins and cabin-rooms.​

In addition, we have five glamping tents of different sizes, each with their own charm and view to the tranquil boat traffic on the Svejbæk narrowing.

​Our motto here is "relax, enjoy nature, be active during the day and sleep well at night". 

Our increased focus on outdoor activities, was recognized in 2020, as we won the prize as "Best Danish Camp Site" in the outdoor category :) We are still a camping site, but as of this coming season, we have changed our name and logo to "Skyttehusets Outdoor Camp".

We have a café serving breakfast and snacks/tapas from local producers, beer, wine, coffee, latte, capuccino and a selction of cakes. In our kiosk you can find a selection of grocery goods and freshly baked breakfast rolls in the morning.  In our marina with jetties, you can rent MTBs, motorboats , canoes, kayaks and SUPs.

​The campsite is located in the middle of the lush beech forest with quick access to several hiking routes and MTB tracks. We are also located right by the Hjejlens jetty where you can board for a trip to Silkeborg or Himmelbjerget.


If you want to cross the Svejbæk narrowing, you can take advantage of our small solar-powered ferry, which operates according to a fixed itinerary throughout the camping season.

​On the Svejbæk side you will find Svejbæk station with  train connections to eg. Silkeborg and Aarhus.
