Number of Croatia’s Inland Campsites Has Increased Twofold over Decade

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, August 12, 2019 – This summer Croatia got two new campsites in the interior of the country: one within the Terme Tuhelj spa and the other at Vrhovine in the mountainous region of Lika – which increased the number of inland campsites to about 30.

The director of the National Association of Camps (KUH), Adriano Palman, has told Hina that the number of inland camping facilities has risen twofold over the past 10 years.

In Croatia there are a total of 785 campsites with accommodation capacities for 248,500 people.

Of them, some 30 are in the interior of the country and they can cater for 4,500 guests.

Although those figures are relatively low, inland campsites can be regarded as valuable investments and Palman praised those private initiatives, explaining that those inland facilities are usually family-run businesses.

A majority of those campgrounds are places where visitors can set up their tents or stay in their camp trailers.

A smaller part of the capacities at those sites include camping chalets, tree houses or glamping tents.

Palman underscore the role of the KUH in efforts to develop inland camping tourism and in this context, he mentioned the association’s cooperation with the Tourism Ministry in the organisation of workshops for potential owners of inland campground facilities and in promotion of this type of the tourist trade.
