Campsite at Egebjerg lake

Located in the beautiful Hansted Forest north of Horsens, this shelter site with four shelters can be booked during the summer months. Surrounded by a river and a lake, at the bottom of a steep-hilled valley, this offers a particularly scenic opportunity for overnight stays in the great outdoors with excellent hiking possibilities.

Nearby, scenic campsite close to the town

At this shelter site, you can wake up to the sound of the rippling Lille Hansted Creek while surrounded by forested slopes. In the beautiful landscape around Hansted Forest and Egebjerg Lake, the site is discreetly located near a scouts' hut. However, the shelters are publicly accessible and can be booked by anyone.

There are a total of three shelters available for booking, each accommodating six people. It is possible to book all the shelters at once if you are a larger group going on a trip. There is also a fire pit and tables/benches. Firewood is occasionally available on the site.

Less than 300 meters away is Egebjerg Lake, where you can find a parking lot, a toilet, a water station, and waste bins. A gravel path leads to the lake.


Book a shelter

It is necessary to book in advance. To cover the site's operating expenses, it costs 100 Danish kroner per shelter, regardless of the number of occupants. Payment should be made via MobilePay (Danish) to the number 949993.

The shelter site is available during the summer months starting from April 1st.

Explore nature

The shelter site is situated along a trail that follows the Lille Hansted Creek between Hansted and Egebjerg Lake. The beautiful hike can be turned into a circular route by returning to the lake via Vandmøllevej.

On the other side of the lake and the parking lot, the large and remarkably visit-worthy Hansted Forest begins. The hilly forest offers steep hills and deep ravines. The forest is divided into different sections with various ownerships, making it quite diverse.
