To find site:- Exit A6 Autobahn at Kaiserlautern West and take B270 towards Pirmasens. After about 9kms turn left to Karlstal/Trippstadt and follow signs for campsite and Neuhof. Part of the final approach is narrow in places but no problem if care is exercised. From the direction of Landau take B10 and at Annweiler take B48 towards  Johanniskreuz and follow campsite signs.

Camping Sagmuhle is almost in the middle of nowhere about 10 kms south of Kaiserlautern! Its in a heavily wooded valley with a lake that can be used for swimming and boating. There are several pitching areas but the main one is opposite the reception. All pitches are on grass and of a reasonable size although they do vary. Like most German campsites the camping area is shared with permanent units although this site does have touring areas. Electrical connections are of 4 amps using continental round 2 pin connectors. Whilst 4 amps seems low we found it perfectly OK if treated like 6 amps which is more commonly found. You can upgrade to a 16 amp metered supply using 1kw tokens at 40 euro cents each. If you make use of this facility you must use the right connector in the box with the meter. Water points are handy to all pitches. The toilet block in our section of the campsite was to a good standard with  seated toilets and paper provided. Unusually this campsite also has a caravan dealer and accessory shop attached but unfortunately the shop does not accept credit cards or UK Bank Cards. Bread can be ordered for collection by 10.00am the following day. The gates to the campsite are closed from 12.30pm to 2.00pm and  from 9.00pm to 7.00am the following morning. There is parking within the site but outside the pitching areas during the hours of closure. WiFi is available via a T-Mobile access point and you can pay on line. At 8 for an hour its quite expensive but if you will be in Germany for any length of time the monthly pass at 29 would be the cheaper option. The site has a large Restaurant and a Bar. Camping Cheques can be used in the low season. Date of visit mid June 2009.

There is ample opportunity for walks and cycling direct from the campsite. For shopping the best bet is Kaiserlautern with a choice of several supermarkets.
