Is there any other way to worship the Norse gods apart from joining an organized group or set of beliefs like Asatru? What would you recommend I do?

I'd suggest reading Ravenbok which is here as a general basis of Asatru via another Kindred's POV: http://www.ravenkindred.com/Ravenbok.html.  They seem more "middle road" than the two extremes you have described above.  I'd double check and make sure it isn't those specific people that have turned you off to Asatru instead of Asatru itself.  

Having said that, many people practice Asatru as solitaries either by choice or circumstance.  

Ritual can be simple like toasting a deity and pouring out the libation or as more complex rituals some groups have.  

Here is another website dealing with the Basics of Asatru and gives advice about joining groups too:  http://www.erichshall.com/asanew/newtotru.htm

And there are different forms of Heathenry.  It may just be that Asatru isn't quite the right fit.  I'd also ask the gods Themselves how They want you to worship Them.
