Otra, Mandalselva, Søgne and Songdalselva and Tovdalselva are a short distance from the campsite.
Otra was previously a good salmon river characterized by an unusually large salmon stock. Today’s population is not as large as before, but more large salmon are caught each year. The best listing in 2010 was 17.5 kg. The 15 salmon-carrying km from the sea to Vigelandsfossen offer varied fishing opportunities for everyone.
Mandalselva is the second largest watercourse in Sørlandet and has a salmon-carrying stretch of 48 km. The river is regulated. The development has led to some places being protected for fishing (salmon ladders, minimum water flow section and at water level thresholds). Since the river is regulated, this results in a somewhat more stable water flow, rarely flood peaks (except in heavy rain) and rarely very low water flow.
Søgne- and Songdalselva today have a good population of sea otters. The salmon stock is also growing, and is expected to improve since the river is limed. The river has a relatively small precipitation area and must therefore be described as a typical flood river. During periods of heavy rainfall, the fish catch can be good. This is especially true in August and September
Tovdalselva can offer varied fishing opportunities from the sea and the 35 km up t.o.m. Herefossfjorden where salmon ends. There are zones for different fishing preferences, both long open zones, and zones with number limitation. The catches of salmon and sea trout in recent years have been between 1500 kg in 2013 and 3000 kg in 2011.
