Luke Kyte | Comments: 1 | Views: 2492

Europe has much to offer for campers of all ages and varying interests. Whether you’d prefer a beach resort packed full of family-friendly activities, or a quiet countryside retreat to relax in the midst of nature, Alan Rogers has inspected and selected thousands of the finest campsites throughout Europe for you to enjoy. 

So, where will your 2016 adventure take you? Regardless of your budget or if you’ll be staying in onsite accommodation or your own caravan or motorhome, you can find the perfect campsite for 2016.  


It may not be your first thought, but why not take advantage of England’s beauty and save yourself some time and expense on the travelling. There are incredible areas of the country to enjoy and whether you’re alone or with the kids, superb sites and experiences to make the most of.

England is rich with historical sites, stunning natural beauty and adventure days for the kids – So why not take a look at staying closer to home in 2016 at an English campsite?


Just over the border you have the beautiful country of France, home to thousands of amazing campsites in both urban and rural locations.

The landscape is so diverse that no two trips will be the same and some of the biggest attractions include activity adventures in the Alps, historical sites in Normandy and the sunning countryside of Auvergne. Why not take a look at some of the most celebrated French campsites today? 


Another country worthy of your consideration in 2016 is Germany. In particular, outdoor activities are very popular, with opportunities for hiking, cycling and taking part in water sports.

From the spectacular Black Forest to the hot springs of Baden-Baden, Germany is full of architecture, rural retreats, shopping destinations and fun-filled family days to keep everyone happy. 


Searching for the perfect beach campsite or want to visit a culturally-rich city? Then Spain has the answer. With a warm climate, beautiful scenery and incredible sites, why not give Spain your thoughts in 2016?

Popular regions include Catalunya, Andalucía and of course, Spain’s amazing cities such as Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia. 

Camping holidays offer endless opportunities and whatever your personal interests, you’ll find the ideal location to satisfy your needs. Regardless of whether you’re travelling alone or as a family, why not take a look at our range of inspected and selected campsites in Europe and choose the perfect destination?

    We are organising a trip to Scandinavia this summer in our Motorhome but are unable to find any books showing us campsites or aires as in the rest of Europe.  We feel we need some way of finding campsites other than our satnav. Can you help us.

    I’m not that much used to camping during the cold season because of the climate conditions, but reading your tips on how to keep warm during the season is helpful.

    I grew up camping with my lower middle class family. Cheap way to see a lot of the country. I love it. Many campgrounds have restrooms and a shower. They vary in quality and cleanliness, but if you plan to shower at the campground, ALWAYS have flip flops or sandals or crocs to wear in the shower. Its a little weird at first, but everyone does it and a few minutes of feeling a little odd when you first jump in is better than foot fungus. Plus, showering nude and having a woodland breeze blowing through the open window is oddly freeing. You gotta try it. Camping rules!!!

    Thank you for hosting at the show. The wife and I had a great time looking around. It has given us great ideas to spruce up our caravan, that we bought recently on www.for-sale.co.uk/caravans . Thanks again. Jason

    WE are neither of those that you note in the BLOG
    We prefer comfort and warmth using our now aging Tourer to travel around Europe

    We used be called explorers except we now take well trodden paths that are wheelchair friendly we now prefer sites with plenty of facilities though not necessarily those for families but also not necessarily adult only.  Yet this year we have been wild camping on a show site (not a caravan show either) and have used Camping Cheques and ACSI sites as well as UK Commercial ones

    So you could say we are Comfort Campers

    What type of camper???
    A Tin Tenter
    Someone who can get his wheelchair or scooter around the site without problems
    Someone who can relax and take in nature whilst enjoying some fishing or photography
    Someone who would love to just disappear for weeks at a time to anywhere in Europe

    Was offered a position as inspector a couple of years ago. Waited for the necessary info to arrive, but never heard any more. Thought it may have been something to do with the takeover. Spend a lot of time in France, any positions available now?
