Skotteksgården is peacefullly and and beautiful located right on Lake Åsunden, at the outskirts of Ulricehamn, a picturesque town in the heart of Westsweden. Easy to reach - only an hour from Gothenburg and close to the city of Ulricehamn, directly by the water and the forest. Here you will find different activities no matter what you want to do and at what time of the year you to stay with us. The various ferries to the continent are convenient to reach within a few hours.
As different as our guests, Skotteksgarden Camping & Stugby is also slightly different from other places. Our cottages are individually decorated with love for details. Our service facilities surprise with design and functionality.
The area around Skottek can look back on a long history. Here, on January 19, 1520, the battle on the ice of Lake Åsunden took place. A Swedish force under the national leader Sten Sture the Younger lost the battle against the Danish army led by Otto Krumpen. Sten Sture was fatally wounded, which is why the battle had far-reaching consequences for political development in Sweden. Today, there is a memorial stone in the oak parc, that will mark the event. For several years, Skottek was owned and operated as a youthcamp from the Swedish Missions Association.
In 1999 the area was purchased by Günter and Johanna Ellinger, a young couple from Austria who with great commitment and ambition converted the land and buildings into the holiday paradise that exists today. And there are still ideas and more dreams…
Perfect for all ages
With us you will enjoy great summer days with swimming and fun on our own sandy beach, with relaxing walks in the deep forest and beautiful bike rides along the lake. Lovely winter days out in the snow with the entire family. Peaceful and quiet on skies through the calm winter forest. Or downhill skiing for big and small snow lovers. In spring and autumn, when nature is resting, you can discover our beautiful region in a completely different way. Take a walk along the lake and just relax. Anything is possible but nothing must be.
