The best year-round campsites in Croatia – main image

The mild winter climate attracts many caravanning enthusiasts who spend the winter on the coast for several months. What attracts them to Croatia during these cold months? First of all, a milder climate than in the northern part of Europe, cheaper camping (from EUR 7 per night) and no tourists.

This year, even more campgrounds have decided to remain open to their visitors all year round . It should be noted that not all amenities are available then, but they are sufficient for a comfortable longer stay. Remember that you don't need a camper to stay longer in Croatia in winter. Many of these open campsites offer short and long-term rentals of mobile homes on preferential terms. Examples of costs are provided under the description of the campsites.
