Four Croatian Campsites In French Top Twenty

Croatia Camping Guide - Camp Simuni

Croatia Week has a great knack of spotting good news stories on Croatia and has come across a French Magazine, Le Monde du Plein Air (which roughly translates as The World of Fresh Air), which features four of Croatia’s campsites in its European top twenty.

We’ve visited two of them already and don’t entirely agree with their inclusion but, clearly, it’s a very subjective thing. Similarly it seems rather odd that all the campsites chosen are situated north of Zadar when there are some excellent campsites in the Šibenik, Split and Dubrovnik regions.

However….we’re in the process of compiling our own top ten of purely Croatian campsites so we’ll let you know the results of that in due course. We might be a little biased but there’s a good case for the European top ten being full of Croatian campsites and nothing else!

Today’s main photo shows the dog exploring one of the Croatian campsites included in the top twenty – Camp Šimuni on Pag island. It’s huge and has some very modern toilet blocks and a special, brightly coloured kiddies toilet – see below.

It also has a vast selection of activities and peripheral facilities on offer though not that many were “open” when I was there in May. I can see, however, that it would appeal to those who want a resort-type holiday and to stay in the same place for a couple of weeks though it would be absolutely packed in summer. We’ll be doing a more detailed report on Camp Šimuni when we “get to it” on our trip in just a few days time.

  1. As luck would have it I've just stumbled upon a Daily Mirror article on Croatia where the journalist spent half of their holiday at Camp Simuni with two young kids. This will give you a real flavour of what it's like in full swing!Here's the link
