Campsites in Denmark

diploma campsite

Campers are a common sight in the Danish summer landscape, and for many Danes, camping is one of the most effective ways to enjoy the summer. A perfect combination of fresh air, freedom and the opportunity to unfold in your own setting, on premises where the whole family can participate.

But what is so special about camping?

Camping is for us who love holidays with freedom, fresh air and pure relaxation in the Danish nature. While camping for many may seem like a primitive form of vacation, those of us who have tried it know that camping and self-drive vacations are a special luxury. It is a cottage on wheels with the freedom to go right wherever you want. It is the presence that few other forms of vacation can offer. It's the relaxation when you know the kids are having fun with the other kids on the bouncy castle. And above all, it is the smell of barbecue and sausages in the beautiful Danish nature. 

Denmark's best campsites

But where do you find the best campsites in Denmark? You can choose and look at the number of stars that the places have, but the number of stars is more apt to tell you how big the place is and how many facilities the place has - whether there are x number of toilets, with swimming pool, etc.

At OpdagDanmark, we are more interested in finding the places where the overall experience is best. And that's why we ask campers what places they have as favorites, and that's why our lists of both large and small campsites.

Every year, our users can nominate their favorite seats, and when voting, they can then via text message or OpdagDanmark app vote for their favorites. Finally, we are left with a list of campsites that most have voted for regardless of size and number of stars.

Below you can see the winners year by year:

5-star campsites

Like hotels, campsites are rated on the principle of 1-5 stars, where 5 stars are only given to the pitches where all conditions are top notch. Although we are not interested in ranking Denmark's campsites based on this principle, we will still draw attention to those who have received 5 stars. 

Some of the criteria that exist for 5-star campsites are that each unit and site must have 100 m², there must be the possibility of family rooms with bathing facilities, high focus on sanitation in the toilets, etc. You can see the campsites in Denmark that have 5 stars here:

  • Hvidbjerg Strand Holiday park
  • Bøjden Strandcamping
  • Camping Bøsøre Strand
  • Camping Trelde Næs
  • Camping Kattegat Strand 
  • Camping Jambo
  • Camping Mørkholt Strand
  • Camping Bogense
