“skip it. read the reviews. don't rely on the 'average' (probably incorrectly calculated) rating”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2011

I booked this campsite because of the nice-looking sauna and pool facilities; however it is difficult-to-impossible to actually use those facilities. Hence, I cannot comment on them.

I have stayed in the grimiest hostels and the cheapest two-star hotels, all over the world. Yet I have never experienced such determined and callously unhelpful staff. My negative experience cannot be attributed to any kind of cultural differences; most of the reviews are written by Germans, who experienced exactly the same things.

In reference to the sole positive review of this establishment: Yes, the rules of the camp (e.g. that you cannot drive in or out between noon and 2 pm, and that they reserve the right to have the pool closed at any point in time) are written in documents that they give you, *after you arrive and pay them and are stuck there*. But this information is not posted on their web site, which is where a diligent traveler will look when deciding where to stay.

I had glanced at the reviews before coming, but did not read them carefully. Note that Tripadvisor's average was either out of date or simply incorrect, at that time giving a 3/5 rating when the vast majority of reviews were 1/5, there was a single 5/5, and the actual arithmetic (mean) average was less than 2/5. Word to the wise: read the reviews. Don't rely on the average rating. Google translate is good enough, if your German is not so great.

There are dozens of places advertising rooms available for rent, a campground or two, and at least one office to help travelers find a place to stay, in every village in the region. Do yourself a favor and patronize somewhere else, where your money will be appreciated.

-- the staff at reception were *very rude*. Minimal explanations as to where things were located. Forget a simple smile -- the staff at reception acted from the beginning as if we were not welcome, and as if we were the biggest pain in the neck.
-- any information we asked for later (since it was not provided at check-in) was communicated only grudgingly.
-- it turned out the shower/toilets next to our tent were simply closed -- when we asked the reception about it, we got a rude "of course that building is closed during off-season", as if it were obvious to everybody in the world that they would shut that building down (without ever giving us a hint during check-in or listing it on their website).
-- the beaches around Zingst and at the camp ground are infested with mosquitoes. The spots where I got bit swelled up to a 1-inch diameter. There isn't much to see or do in the area in general.
-- there was no hot water for tea/coffee.
-- The "Wellness Camp Dune 6" poses as a wellness campsite, with sauna and swimming pool facilities at the camp ground. Problem is the sauna/swimming pool facility is only open 1 pm to 8 pm -- precisely when most folks are out doing things outdoors. Moreover, the swimming pool is not disinfected with chlorine, but some sand-filtration system, due to which it can be closed for several days, without notice, whenever the camp management decides it needs to stay closed for time-consuming maintenance. We never got to use the sauna, as a result. We asked (after checking out super-early at 8 am) if we could use the sauna just a couple of hours that day, since we hadn't had a chance till then, and got a flat "categorically no". They really don't want people using the sauna/swimming pool facilities. This is ***not*** a wellness camp whatsoever. If you think it might be cheap, there is even cheaper, higher-quality accommodation (and I'm sure nicer camp grounds) in more interesting places, such as Rügen or Prerow or Wustrow. Dune 6 is not worth it -- the unfriendly atmosphere provided by the staff will ruin your vacation.
-- If you want to see something more noteworthy, go to Rügen Island -- it's a beautiful island, with chalk cliff formations and great hikes/walks through the woods. There is very cheap accommodation (we saw twenty Euro per night including breakfast in early June -- cheaper overall than the camp site!), in lodges and picturesque settings.
