Camping (formerly autocamping) enables its guests to stay in their own accommodation facilities such as tents, caravans, camper cars or in camp site mobile and stable accommodation facilities such as mobile houses, bungalows, cottages or log houses.
Slovakia has a relatively large number of campings that are scattered all over the country – from Bratislava through Low and High Tatras up to Košice. Most of them are located in beautiful mountain areas or near lakes or rivers.
Camp sites offer not only their services, but also the experience of seeing attractions in their surroundings, for example selected campings in Slovakia, in the most important tourist areas – in Liptov and Orava, in the Tatras or Slovenský raj as well as near some lakes and thermal swimming pools.
Facilities and quality of services of particular camp sites differ. In some of them chalets or bungalows are available in which you can stay, elsewhere possibilities of eating out, sports or cultural and social activities are better. The majority of campings are open during the summer season only.
Slovak camp sites are popular especially with Dutch visitors and all those, who like to be in touch with nature.
Camping and tent camping in protected areas in the open air out of the designated areas in Slovakia is prohibited and will result in a fine.
