Tips for campsites in Czech Republic: Our recommendations

Camping in the Czech mountains - Campsite U Potoka

With only 25 camper pitches, the campsite U Potoka is definitely one of the smaller campsites in Czech Republic - perfect for those who want their peace and quiet and to escape the tourist crowds even in high season. Located in the valley basin of the Broumovsko Mountains near the Polish border in Královéhradecký, the campsite looks more like a farm than a campsite at first glance. If you like green and down-to-earth camping, you've come to the right place, because your camper is not only parked in a meadow, the site is also surrounded by unspoilt nature that invites you to go hiking and cycling. There is also an orchard with a children's playground, a small pool and a campfire site.

Camping near Prague - Camping Sokol Praha

If you have chosen the Czech Republic's beautiful capital Prague as destination of your trip, you can easily put down roots with your caravan or van very close to the city centre. The campsite Sokol Praha, is particularly well situated. Its grassy pitches are right next to a lake and adjacent park. From here, a free shuttle bus will take you to the nearby train station, from where you can reach Prague city centre within 15 minutes. The perfect starting point for a trip to Prague Castle or the Royal Bridge! But you can also spend a few relaxing hours at the campsite itself: You can enjoy breakfast and delicious Czech cuisine in the campsite's own restaurant, swim laps in the pool and find other facilities in the immediate vicinity of the campsite, such as a volleyball court and a basketball or football field.

Camping by the Lake - Campsite Villa Bohemia

The Lipno Reservoir, also known as the ´Czech Sea`, is located in the Bohemian Forest and attracts numerous visitors every year - including some camping enthusiasts. That's why there are several small, simple campsites on its shores where you can spend your holiday. For example, the campsite Villa Bohemia. In addition to the beautiful, green pitches right by the water, this site offers you a few other advantages. Water sports fans can rent pedal boats, canoes and SUPs, among other things, and there is also a private beach area for those who want to take things a little less action-packed. Otherwise, you can make a campfire at the fireplace, play a game of basketball or volleyball on the sports field, or explore the (extraordinarily beautiful) Šumava - one of the most popular destinations in Czech Republic - on your bike or hiking boots.

A feeling of wild camping - Autocamp Jindřiš

Would you like to park your camper somewhere in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by untouched forest, and ideally with a natural swimming hole nearby? The Autocamp Jindřiš in South Bohemia makes these wild campers' dreams come true. On the banks of the Hammerbach stream, a cosy campsite awaits you and your camper among the trees and on the meadow. Although the campsite itself is very beautiful, the real highlight is its surroundings. You can look forward to small ponds and a flooded, former quarry with a sandy shore where you can take a wonderful swim. All in all, the campsite and the nature that surrounds it are perfect for simply switching off and finding peace. If you're looking for a bit of action, the town of Jindřichův Hradec is also very close to the campsite and definitely worth a visit. Visit the castle, take a look at the market square with its Renaissance and Baroque houses or simply enjoy a meal in one of the restaurants or cafés.

Camping with children in Czech Republic - Campsite Chvalšiny

There's a swimming pool and a bathing pond, several sports fields and playgrounds and - during the high season in summer - various activities every day especially for children: the campsite Chvalšiny is definitely one of the most child- and family-friendly campsites in the country. During the summer activities, children can look forward to feeding rabbits and goats in the mini-zoo, and handicraft and painting lessons or baking buns are also on the programme, along with other activities. Of course, adult guests also get their money's worth by swimming, visiting the bistro, baking pizzas in the campsite's own pizza oven or hiking in the region. You can rent bicycles and a paddleboard at the campsite, and near the campsite you can add even more variety to your holiday with rafting or canoeing on the Vltava River.

Camping near the Krkonoše Mountains - Campsite Královec

The Giant Mountains, which live up to their name and are the highest mountains in Czech Republic, are extremely popular with holidaymakers: In winter, mainly due to its ski resorts, but in summer due to the opportunities for hiking. If you too are planning to climb the heights of the mountains, you can stay at the foot of the mountains at campsite Královec. For nature lovers, a stay here does not necessarily have to be high up. Near the campsite you will find waterfalls, rock formations and forests, and another mountain range called the Raven Mountains. The campsite itself is so beautiful with its green expanses that you can just stay there and relax in nature.

Camping on the river - Camping Prima

The Vltava River meanders through the country as the longest river in Czech Republic and attracts fans of canoeing and rafting in particular. Situated on one of its tributaries, the Lainsitz, is our final campsite recommendation: The campsite Prima. If you're looking for action on the water, you're in good hands here, because you can rent SUPs, canoes or even motorboats right at the site, and of course you can swim, too. If you're not so keen on water, you can hire bicycles to explore the area on land, or you can relax on the site, treat your eyes to a view of the greenery and play a game of table tennis.
