Overview

Pawna lake camping near Mumbai & Pune, located about 15kms from Lonavala, is a beautiful, unexplored location that is ideal for a great weekend getaway. Near yet far away from the crowded Lonavala city, you can camp here with us and enjoy the nature at its best. Camping with us at this lakeside campsite has its own perks. A mere dip in the lake takes away all your city stress and rejuvenates you. Perfect for a relaxing break amidst nature, and engaging in fun activities with your family and friends. By the day, you can take up recreational and outdoor activities, swim in the lake, relax and enjoy life at your own speed. At night, gather around the campfire (the much needed source of warmth for most nights) and bond over the hot served delicious food sprinkled with some fun stories.

The place is just wow! I had been to camps in Pawna before but the one thing that was perfect about this place was that it wasnt crowded like the others. There were other groups at the campsite but they were a decent group. Overall it was a peaceful campsite & the coordinator was helpful. The washrooms are all Indian with tap water. The meals were freshly cooked.

Was perfect for me! I had done camping in Pawna before & i felt the tariff was slightly higher for this camp compared to others but now we know why. It was to keep out the cheap crowds! The camp is pretty basic with facilities like toilets, electricity & rain shelters. I must mention that Mr.Naamdev the coordinator went out of his way in assisting us. Would recommend it for a gals outing. The place is located close to the lake, good food, great staff & decent campers around. Kudos to team.

Not great. It was raining & the area had become muddy. All mud was in our shoes. You should clean the mud. Thankfully the tents were waterproof. Wont visit again .

The camp location is extremely beautiful one would definitely feel out of the world here. The campsite is next to Pawna lake and one would never get bored watching that beautiful lake. Our camp supervisor was a gem of a person, ready to help you in any way and extremely polite. The other staffs were also very polite and friendly and the food is extremely delicious, basic and simple village food. Its definitely a value for money and one must go as many times they wish. It is far from Lonavala so auto and pvt cars charge from 800-1000 bucks to take you to location, so it is better if you come in group or travel from your pvt vehicle. Also a suggestion, carry some spice powder with you to make the BBQ more delicious. Like this place very much and would definitely visit whenever i can. Best times to visit is just after monsoon.
