Bathrooms and toilets on the campsite (also in winter)

Bathrooms and toilets on the campsite (also in winter) – main image

Will they be clean? Will there be hot water? Will there be any heat in the bathrooms? What do sanitary facilities at campsites look like now? We tell you how and where to find the best campsites with the best bathrooms!

Camping all year round


First, look for year-round campsitesopen all year round . The owners of such campsites are probably well aware of how important it is to maintain heat in the toilets at all times of the year, especially in autumn and winter . Campsites in the mountains often have heated toilets all year round, because at an altitude of 1,500 m above sea level it is also cold in summer. Such rooms have tight doors and windows, vestibules, and you will be happy to take off your outer clothes right after crossing the threshold. Selected campsites in the mountains with beautiful and warm bathrooms can be found in our list: The best campsites in the Dolomites - holidays in the mountains .

Sanitary facilities for children and babies


Secondly, look for campsites that pride themselves on having separate rooms for bathing children, as well as those that have special baby rooms. Children's sanitary facilities have separate small toilets and lower showers with a removable shower head. Such rooms often have family showers - for several people.


A babyroom is a room for bathing and changing babies, with a bathtub in the countertop. Such rooms are usually closed, so there will be no draft, and there are changing rooms and dryers.


This photo comes from a 5-star campsite in Zadar open until October 31 - Falkensteiner Premium Resort . The babyroom is located in the same room as the children's bathrooms, and there is even a TV inside!


The owner of the campsite, who made sure that toilets for children were built at his campsite, knows how important details and high quality are, so you can expect that other areas of the campsite will be of an equally high standard.

Better than at home


Another issue is the cleanliness of toilets. If you choose campsites with 3 or more stars, it may happen that the bathrooms will be cleaner than your home! Yes, it's true... the person responsible for cleaning toilets at campsites washes these rooms several times a day, and on larger campsites this person cleans almost after every person in the toilet. Nowadays, customs are completely different than those we remember in the campsites of the 1990s. During the epidemic period, these standards were maintained or even strengthened. Some campsites even have special cleaning procedures developed according to ISO.

Private bathrooms


Many campsites offer the option of renting private bathrooms, to which only you have access for the entire duration of your stay. In addition to hygiene reasons, it is an extremely practical solution, because in such a bathroom you can leave your cosmetics, towels or even bathrobes for the entire trip. When we used such bathrooms, we also kept a foldable bathtub for children or a toilet seat for children. However, it must be taken into account that the number of such bathrooms is limited and they cannot usually be booked in advance, like pitches. However, there are campsites that have a separate private bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink for each plot. Such a solution is offered by, among others: campsites in Sicily at Punta Bracetto: Baia dei Corali , Camping Luminoso . These selected campsites also have private bathrooms:

Baths, saunas and swimming pools


It happens that on year-round camping sites in Austria or Italy, bathrooms are even special bathing rooms - baths that are so warm that you can easily walk in them in underwear, but in addition to bathrooms and toilets, you can relax here, for example, on deckchairs.

If you are looking for really warm sanitary rooms, look for campsites with large bathhouses, and if that is not enough for you, choose campsites with saunas and swimming pool complexes. After leaving such warm rooms, you won't feel cold even when it's frosty outside. In winter, you can often see people wearing bathrobes ONLY at campsites - even children!


Outdoor swimming pools are also available at year-round campsites. See selected campsites with SPA and wellness facilities with swimming pools :

Bathroom photos online


Finally, before arriving, it is worth checking whether the owner has placed photos of bathrooms and toilets on his website. If they don't exist, there's probably nothing to be proud of. We avoid such places ;)



If I still haven't convinced you to use the bathrooms at the campsite, you can always bathe only in the camper. Choose a campsite where you can fill up with fresh water directly on the pitch and drain gray water in the place where the camper is located, so you don't have to go to the camper service every day. See the list of campsites in Poland that offer this option: Campsites? Preferably with water and sewage! . Please remember that in winter, such water points are not available on all plots. These must be lots with heated service poles.

What to take camping in winter?

Speaking of bathrooms, let's start with bath accessories:

  • Slip-on winter shoes - you can go to the bathroom or toilet faster in them than in standard lace-up shoes,
  • Warm bathrobe,
  • A swimsuit and a large bath towel, which may be useful in saunas,
  • Flashlight/headlamp – in winter it gets dark faster and the alleys are not always well lit.

And a few other essentials for a winter camper trip:

  • Additional gas cylinders,
  • chains,
  • Insulating mats for windows,
  • Shoe heaters.
