Camp Klenovica

Croatia Camping Guide - Camp Klenovica

We found the steep narrow road that takes you to Camp Klenovica as we were driving back up to the coast road from the centre of Klenovica. It takes you past reception and check in (main picture) and you then drive down to the campsite itself which covers about 30 acres and has a long pebble beach pretty well all to itself. It’s close to the islet of Sv Anton., south of the centre., and you can walk into town via the gate that’s obscured by the large tree on the right in the photo below.

We were there in early May and the season hadn’t started properly so it wasn’t really open (Open May to October according to the website). However a very nice lady allowed us to wander round and I’m sure we could have stayed if we’d wanted to. The toilets and washing facilities looked fine ….

….. and there;’s a supermarket and two restaurants – fish restaurant and self service buffet.

There’s also a little outdoor pool complex which was added in 2014 and was about to get its spring cl;ean and fill up for the summer season.

.As with most places, prices depend on the season with a pitch costing from 70 to 96 Kn, one adult from 31 to 46 Kn, registration, insurance and taxes 11 to 14 Kn, a dog 13 to 21 Kn and electricity a flat 30 Kn. If I’d stayed there in May it would have cost me 159 Kn in total including the dog and electricity – on the slightly high side of the average I paid throughout the trip, particularly with some of the facilities not yet open.  “Pitch” is a bit of a misnomer as the camping area is not divided up and you just select a spot. This is quite common in Croatia and has its advantages and disadvantages!

If you don’t have a caravan or motorhome with you then fully furnished mobile homes are also available, about 150 metres from the sea. Fully air-conditioned, each one is 24 square metres with two bedrooms sleeping up to 5, kitchen with dining room, bathroom, terrace with table, chairs and awning/shade, and a parking space. Basic prices are between €45 and €120 per day (again, depending on the season) excluding cots, pets, cleaning, bedding, taxes etc.

Klenovica itself seems like a pleasant, old fashioned, type of tourist village and you can read more about it on sister sites:

Croatia Online – Klenovica

Croatia Cruising Companion - Klenovica Harbour

The campsite is part of the Luje group which also owns nearby Kamp Kozica, which we also visited and will report on soon, as well as a hotel, villas and restaurant.

The group website is in Croatian only but there’s a separate website for Camp Klenovic.a.
