    A very small camping next to the lake. A very friendly owner, who serves very good coffee in the morning and speaks German and English. You might meet people from all over the world, who are on a trip by car or bike and tent or camper.

  7. Been twice at Rino. First in 2013 during an alone motorcycle trip around the Balcans, last time 2014 with 3 more friends during another motorcycle trip that took us ’till Ukraine.
    We all agree that after so many days driving Rino was a superb place to rest, enjoy the lake (With its snakes!), sun, food, and Skopjsko beer!
    If I ever return to Macedonia I’ll pass by Rino for sure.

    Cheers!

    That was the best camping I have ever been to. And I’ve been to quite a lot of them. The campsite is small and full of familiar atmosphere, the people unbelievably nice and ready to help, the lake right there, warm, beautiful and full of fish. Talking of fish, I highly recommend trying some of them prepared right there on the campsite. Cheap and very tasty!

    Auf der Durchreise von Griechenland nach Kroatien waren wir mit 3 Fahrzeugen für 2 Nächte auf dem Rino-Camping.
    Ein kleiner, sauberer und sehr gut geführter Platz. Besonders war der morgendliche Kaffee mit einem herrlichen Blick über den See. Die ganze Familie ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und auch das Essen im kleinen Campingrestaurant ist sehr zu empfehlen.
    Eine wirklich sehr gute Adresse.

    Abbiamo passato dei giorni magnifici al campeggio Rino! Il ragazzo è simpaticissimo e socievole, il cibo è fantastico e il campeggio, anche se piccolino, ha tutto il necessario e una vista fantastica sul lago! Ogni mattina la sveglia è accompagnata da un ottimo caffè espresso e da un grande sorriso che ti migliora la giornata, e la sera non manca un buon bicchiere di rakji che allieta il sonno 🙂
    Grazie Rino per i bellissimi giorni passati con te!

    Highly recommend staying at campig Rino. We stayed with 14 young adults and were very pleasantly surprised. The hospitality was amazing!
    Unlike other tourist based places it is a very honest and correct camping place for both tents and campers. Some trees are still growing and the beach was still being constructed. A very cosy and quiet camp site with direct access to the lake.
    – A happy camping group from Belgium
