Camping Dubrovnik: Where To Go Camping In Dubrovnik & Its Surrounding Areas In 2019

We all know that Dubrovnik is hands down one of the best places to visit in Croatia and in the entire Balkans, and super-popular as a result. What you might be surprised to learn is that you don’t have to go down the usual route of staying in a guest house or hotel when you head here. There are many Dubrovnik camping facilities you can check out instead.

Camping is ideal for families, but also fantastic for those who want to be wholly immersed in the natural setting of Croatia, while also having independence over every single detail of their time. Another plus is that camping is much cheaper than a hotel. So, if you’re on a budget, you get a double whammy of advantages!

Of course, with choice come decisions, and it can be hard to whittle down a choice, making sure that you get the right camping spot for your needs. You don’t want to be too far out of the center of Dubrovnik, but of course, the idea of camping is to be a little out in the countryside, rather than in the middle of the city. It basically calls for middle ground. When it comes to camping Dubrovnik has several options. Let’s check out some of the best spots for camping in Dubrovnik to help you make your own decision.

Best Time For Camping Dubrovnik

First, before we get into the nitty gritty of where to stay, we need to discuss when to stay. You don’t want to be caught in a wintertime storm while staying in a tent or motorhome!

The biggest campsites are open from April until October, which encompasses the entire summer season and a little of the cooler shoulder seasons. April and May, and the end of September and October are great times to visit if you’re not a big fan of very high temperatures and crowds. Prices are lower at these times, too, increasing as the peak months of July and August get underway.

Equipment-wise, if you have any, it’s best to bring it, but if you don’t, you’ll find that the biggest campsites will rent it out to you for a small charge. Many campsites have Wi-Fi, and this may or may not be for an added cost. This is something you need to think about if you want to stay super-connected! Free parking isn’t always a given but is quite widely available.

Autocamp Matkovica

Compared to some of the largest camping sites in the region, this is one of the hidden gems. Also, because of its smaller size, you get lower prices. Bonus!

You’ll find many shops and restaurants within walking distance, and in under 5 minutes on foot, you’ll be right on the beach. If you want to venture into the center of town, there is a bus stop a few minutes away, too.
