The site:

Krono Camping is a large well equipped campsite. There are two restaurants and a shop, swimmimg pool, beach, toilets, showers, camper's kitchen/dining area and a dish washing room with a dishwasher!
On arrival campers will receive a card to operate the entry barrier, a key for access to the electric hook up and a card to open any locked doors (Showers, toilets etc.) Wi-fi access is available on request.
The selected week for the rally is at the end of the season on Öland. This means that the site will not be crowded but opening times for the restaurants and shop stock may not be as available at the height of the season.

The Area:

The island of Öland lies off the south-east of Sweden. It is about 80 miles (137 km.) long by 10 miles (16 km.) at its wides point.The highest hill is 180 ft, (55m). To the north there are many by roads with traditional windmills and modern wind turbines. Karehamn is a fishing village worth a visit for the frsh fish on sale in the fishmonger's shop. Borgholm has a traffic free centre with many places to eat. Just south is the massive ruined Borgholm Castle. Roughly in the centre of the west coast is the town Farjestaden. Here there are many shops and restaurants as well as the terminal for the passenger/cycle ferry. To the south the land is much flatter with the centre occupied by the Great Alvar, an area of biodiversity. Morbylanga is a small town but with a range of eating places. South of the town are quiet roads and interesting villages. The east coast has few villages. All over the island you will find many small museums and historical buildings.
Kalmar is the main town opposite Farjestadenand is reached by the Öland bridge (motor vehicles only) Cyclists and foot passengers may use the ferry. In the summer there are three morning sailings, 6.45, 8.00 and 9.00. There are more afternoon return sailings ending around 17.00. There is also a bus service. The town has an old shopping centre with varied shops and a shopping mall. If you must there is an out of townretail park with, of course, a branch of Ikea. The cheapest place for a meal or coffee.
