Another good season of growth as camping continues to be a popular form of tourism in Croatia…

Croatia is home to 278 camp grounds with a total capacity of around 237,000 people. This year saw growth of 3% in the number of campers in Croatia compared to the same period last year, whilst overnight stays were up 4%, it was revealed at the traditional 3-day camping forum which is being held in Biograd na Moru this week.

Camping now makes up 26% of the all accommodation in Croatia, and this year’s excellent results have given the Ministry of Tourism cause to be optimistic about segment in the future. Research shows that the profile of the camper in Croatia is very specific. They are generally older than the average tourist that visits, and tend to return to the same destination 3 or more times.

Contrary to expectations, campers have very good purchasing power. The average camper spends 48 euros per a day. Campers at Croatian sites tend to stay on average 6-7 days.
