Alan Rogers Review

Camp Smlednik is relatively close to the capital, Ljubljana, yet within striking distance of Lake Bled, the Karavanke mountains and the Julian Alps. It provides a good touring base, set above the River Sava, and also has a small, separate enclosure for those who enjoy naturism. Situated beside the peaceful tiny village of Dragocajni, in attractive countryside, there are 120 places for tourers, each with electricity (6/10A). Although terraced, it is probably better described as a large plateau with tall pines and deciduous trees providing some shade. The naturist area, measuring some 30x100 m., accommodates 15 units adjacent to the river.

Among the many species of birds, you have every chance of seeing the Golden Oriole. Near reception and the security, barrier is a bar that provides food every day including breakfast. Complete with dartboard, it radiates an atmosphere typical of a British pub and is used by local villagers in the evenings, accentuating that feeling. From a grass sunbathing area there is stepped access to the river for swimming. Good size fish can be caught by anglers (licence required). The Sava is excellent for canoeing or kayaking.


Three fully equipped sanitary blocks are of varying standards, but with adequate and clean provision. In the main camping area, a fairly new solar-powered, two-storey block has free hot showers, the lower half for use within the naturist area. Normally, heated showers in the old block are also free. Toilet for disabled visitors. Laundry facilities. Supermarket at entrance. Bar (all year) serves food (1/5-15/10). Two good quality clay tennis courts (charged). Swings for children. River swimming and fishing. WiFi (free).

Travelling on road no.1, both Smlednik and the site are well signed. From E61 motorway, Smlednik and site are again well signed at the Vodiice exit 11. (Watch out for sharp right turn to site on a bend just after camping 1 km. sign).
