Camping in CroatiaTweet Follow @FindCroatia
Enjoying such a warm climate and welcoming landscape, camping in Croatia was always popular accommodation mode among Croatians as well as foreign visitors, especially during the summer school holidays along Croatian coast of Adriatic and it’s islands.
Presently, there is variety of campsites and campgrounds along the coast, while in inland – continental Croatia, campgrounds and campsites are scarce, limited only to few camps. Most of the campsites along Croatian coast and islands are located in really nice location – usually on the very sea-shore or very close to it.
Due to current Croatian camping legislation, some campsites are quite small, created as a part of somebody’s large garden, with purpose to provide important source of income for that family. Those camps usually provide camping facilities for up to 20 persons. These small camps often has limited facilities, with basic 2 or 3 showers and toilets, as well as basic cooking facilities, electricity and water.
Other are large campsites that used to belong to state – run companies, covering bigger areas of attractive coastline, catering for hundreds of campers. Large campsites has much better facilities, numerous showers and toilets, washing and cooking facilities as well as restaurants, pizzerias, cafes and supermarkets as a part of the campsite itself. Though those campsites have larger variety of facilities, the sometimes lack that cozy and homely feeling of smaller grounds.

Beside camping in organized campsites, one can, obviously, camp in other remote areas of Croatia too. Before deciding where to camp, check with the owner of the land is it OK to put up your tent there. Usually, landowners would not mind for you to overnight on his/her land, but for longer camping it is recommended to use designated campsites, especially along the Adriatic coast, where camping outside the campsites are not allowed at all.
Nevertheless, if you decide to put up your tent somewhere in the wood or open field, never-ever put fire on! It is so dangerous and illegal, and local people get very angry if they spot somebody doing it ! Please look after our nature and our as well as your safety! This important note for Camping in Croatia, as well as anywhere else, is to be very, VERY cautious with open fires and barbeques. Please check with your chosen campsite what is their policy on open fire issue. Most of the campsites has designated grill and barbeque areas that are created to enjoy safe BBQ-ing and this should be good enough for anybody’s needs. Enjoy safe and pleasant camping in Croatia!
