Preventing Surprises -the Top 10 Criteria for Camping Selection

Camping travel has been a favorite for many years. Due to the proximity of nature and freedom during the design of the holiday, a feeling of adventure always comes up on the green meadow. However, you should never headlessly plunge into such a holiday – this applies first of all, if one is not yet experienced in this area. This can quickly lead to unpleasant surprises.

The top 10 criteria:

  1. There is a good campsite
    2. The situation – an important criterion in the selection of the area
    3. The region as an exclusion criterion
    4. These groups of people can be encountered during camping
    5. What kind of equipment can be expected at a campsite?
    6. How can a place be maintained?
    7. How can you protect yourself against unpleasant surprises?
    8. You have to reckon with these expenses
    9. You can inform yourself in advance about the condition of the campsites
    10. A campsite with quality seal?

1. There is a good campsite

In order to qualify as a high-quality camp, it must fulfill several criteria . Areas, which serve as a place of accommodation for several people at regular intervals, need not only a constant care, but also their location should satisfy the requirements of the holidaymakers.

A good campsite is ideally located more than a green meadow. On top of that there should be sanitary facilities as well as various possibilities for entertainment.If you do not want to spend your leisure time every day, make sure that the selected area has at least a table tennis – especially important when you go on a journey with children.

2. The situation – an important criterion in the selection of the area

If you are looking for a campsite, you must not ignore the situation.

An unpleasant noise or a permanently moist background can easily spoil the holiday. First, of course, make sure that the area is not near a busy road. An additional advantage is the bushes, which not only protect the place from wind, but also from noise. If you want to combine a beach holiday with camping, you should also find a freely accessible waterway nearby. In this respect are areas which are located on the beaches of the East and North Sea. Dog owners also need certain equipment. Larger animals often need more spotting, as well as places where their needs may be needed – for this reason, people with pets should look for camping areas near dog zones.

3. The region as an exclusion criterion

Last but not least, the area also plays an important role in deciding on a campsite. Especially in terms of weather, many people have certain ideas regarding their holidays. If you want to avoid wind and cooler temperatures, you should look for an area in the south of Germany, which is not too high. If you prefer windless regions, a stay at the Baltic Sea is forbidden – in this case you should look for a campsite near a forest.

4. These groups of people can be encountered during camping

In the meantime, not only families with children have a camping holiday. Often young people or older persons are also to be found in these places. However, if the audience is very mixed, it can be easy to fight. For this reason, you should make sure in advance of which clientele the offer of the place is aimed.In general, the equipment of the course is to be taken as a benchmark – child-friendly areas usually have several playgrounds and bathing facilities.

Interested parties are available with different design and presentation. People who want to start an adventure holiday should look for natural places. Apart from sanitary facilities and seating arrangements, these do not include any other equipment . Meanwhile, however, there are places that offer a nearly luxurious ambience in their design. On some campsites you will find giant swimming pools with water slides and sun loungers – in this case, however, you also have to expect slightly higher overnight costs. Some places also score in the immediate vicinity. This has the advantage that you do not have to worry too much about the preparation of the food.

6. How can a place be maintained?

To ensure the proper care of a campsite, a clean lawn is not necessary. There should also be bushes, trees and especially their branches. Only in this way can a corresponding protection be ensured in the case of stronger winds.

7. How can you protect yourself against unpleasant surprises?

Before you go into the holidays you should get a detailed information about the nature of the desired holiday destination. In addition to the location, this also includes the nature of the place. In order to be able to adequately react to nasty surprises, however, a suitable equipment of your own Reisagpäck is necessary. Thus, one should have medicines and bandages for the care of minor injuries. Also medicines like Aspirin may not be missing in any travel pharmacy. In addition, it is also recommended to take some long-lasting meals.This ensures that you do not have to be hungry in the case of thinly grocery groceries.

8. You have to reckon with these expenses

In the context of travel expenses, it should be noted that so-called “camping cards” are now available. With these, camping is possible at a relatively low price – for example, owners of “Camping Checks”can already spend their holidays at around EUR 16 per night. However, it is not only costs for the overnight stay, but one should also consider the price for the parking space during the planning. This usually amounts to 10 EUR – 20 EUR per day, depending on the place and the season. You also have to calculate the food prices of the respective region – especially if you want to get all food on site.

9. You can inform yourself in advance about the condition of the campsites

In order to obtain information on the holiday destination, many people nowadays use the help of the Internet. After all, the World Wide Web provides a wealth of information and makes it easy to compare several campsites. According to CAMPINGSHIP, there are now several websites devoted to the evaluation of places where you can spend your camping holidays in a tent or caravan. However, care must be taken to ensure that this is a serious source. An indicator of this can be the age of the portal – in general older websites have higher credibility – as well as the possibility that outsiders can give their own opinion on the presented campgrounds. A recommended address is the website www.camping.info. If you do not just want to rely on the internet as a source of information, you can also go to the travel agency. The staff often has a great deal of experience and can give a good advice on recommended holiday resorts. Of course, friends make a good starting point – they can make reliable recommendations, since you have already experienced on-site with the respective campsite.

10. A campsite with quality seal?

Popular awards for camping sites are the Ecocamping Award and the European Eco-label. This award is not only given to places that are distinguished by perfect leadership, but also by areas that are designed to be sustainable. This includes, for example, the installation of photovoltaic plants for the production of hot water. Another quality seal is called “QIII” . This is awarded to companies that stand out from the competition by virtue of their strong performance – currently only two campsites were awarded with this award in all of Germany.
