First Camp Norsjö - Telemark

Welcome to First Camp Norsjø – Telemark, the place where camping and marina meet in a breathtakingly beautiful setting! With its incredible location by Lake Norsjön and the combination of mountains, nature and bathing, this is a place where holiday lovers and locals have been gathering for many years. It is always teeming with life here, buzzing with activity in the spring, summer and autumn.



At the camping site, you can choose to stay in a cabin, in a glamping tent or on a camping pitch with your motorhome, caravan or tent. Here, you will be staying a stone’s throw from Lake Norsjön, close to the beach no matter where you stay. Many cabins and pitches have got magical view over the lake.



If you like action-packed holidays, you will be in for a treat at Norsjø! With numerous activities, water sports and close proximity to excursions and sights, it is impossible to have a dull moment. The campsite features miniature golf, playground, jumping pillow and many rental activities such as canoeing and SUP (Stand Up Paddling). If you are up for a day trip, you will find many destinations nearby. The round trips over the Telemark Canal go directly from the pier in the area. And just within 20 minutes by car you will reach the biggest water park in Scandinavia, Bø Sommarland, a very popular activity among families with children. A very warm welcome to the Norsjø paradise!
