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.

  • List of official 5-star campsites in Denmark
  • ADAC's "michelin" list of Denmark's best campsites
  • List of campsites with bathing facilities (water park and swimming pool)

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.

If you are looking for the regional polls, you can find them via these links: North Jutland, Middle Jutland, South Jutland, Funen and Zealand.

Below you can see the winners nationwide, 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

Rules and conditions for voting at Discover Denmark

Due to great interest in some of our polls and thus increased competition to get to the top of the polls, we have made this page to determine what is allowed and not allowed, as well as what we do to prevent cheating.

If you have a question that you do not find an answer to below, you are more than welcome to write to us at info@opdagdanmark.dk.

How often can one vote?

You can vote for all your favorites - but only once

Can you vote multiple times?

To prevent cheating and the ability to vote countless times, our voting module requires you to confirm your votes by text message. That way you can only vote once per. telephone number per place, and that way we get a fair vote.

Why do I need to confirm with SMS?

In order to prevent cheating with the polls while at the same time making it as easy and anonymous to vote as possible, we have introduced an SMS control when you vote. End of polls where you can vote multiple times and cheat by clearing cookies or cheating with ip address. With our SMS check, anyone with a mobile number can cast a vote.

All telephone numbers are anonymized in the database. Read more about this in our cookie and privacy policy.

Why aren't all the places involved?

Discover Denmark's polls are through nominations. Unless there are some who will vote in one place, then there is no reason to include it in the list. Especially because we get some incredibly long lists.

On the pages of the polls, you will find up to the time of the poll itself a box where you can nominate your favorite. Once the voting is underway, it is no longer possible to nominate. Here it is only possible to vote for those who were nominated.

Is it free to join?

Of course, it's free. Everyone should be able to participate in their category on equal terms. Therefore, it never costs to join the polls, and since we place great importance on credibility, it is obviously not possible to buy more votes with us.

What must / must not do to get more votes?

With OpdagDanmark's polls, we intend to find the best places in Denmark. We find them by reaching out to people who, through their own experience, can recommend their favorites. However, creative initiatives such as the purchase of talk time cards, competitions and attractive prizes, etc. can undermine this and cause people to vote in places without knowing the place.

To avoid this, we have created lists that describe the things that must and must not:

You may not:

  • Use contests, offers and discounts in connection with Discover Denmark's polls
  • Provide / offer products / services free of charge to people in exchange for getting them to vote
  • Buy talking time cards to vote many times.

You can:

  • Boost your postings regarding the poll on social media
  • Use a prize issued by Discover Denmark ifm. the vote to market your own participation

These rules apply to all nominees and non-nominees. If you experience cheating, please contact us at info@opdagdanmark.dk

We regularly check and contact people who have voted to make sure no cheating is done.
If we discover large quantities of unreachable, similar phone numbers, we reserve the right to remove them.

Are you in doubt as to whether an action violates our rules? So do not hesitate to write to us at info@opdagdanmark.dk or phone 53 63 12 14.

For nominees:

On the 1st violation of the above rules, the nominee gets a warning and the votes are removed for the entire day the rule was violated, as well as the subsequent 3 days (or until the competition, offer or the like is completely removed).

In the event of a second violation of the rules, the nominee is disqualified, removed from the list and can only participate again the following year.

For non-nominees:

We have seen examples where non-nominees and businesses want to help their favorite get on the road and inadvertently violate the above rules. In these cases, it is necessary to separate unlawful votes without damaging the nominee's own efforts, and OpdagDanmark will remove a quantity based on time and number of votes at its discretion. We then clearly draw attention to the case, who has broken the rules and when and how many votes we have removed. Therefore: read the rules and don't break them!

Tips and advice for the nominees

There are many ways in which, as a nominee, you can improve your chance of getting enough votes to appear on our map of Denmark's best in its category & #8211; and maybe even end up winning. We have gathered here a number of measures that have been used by previous winners:

Share more than once. It is rare for a post to reach all your followers on social media. Therefore, you may want to encourage people to vote multiple times. Failure to do so too often and in succession will not be considered spam. We also hear from previous winners that the postings are really good at activating followers, so you get more interaction on your Facebook page and good conversations with customers.

Ask the network for help. Many local / loyal customers would rather than spread your message and get more votes. As nominated in a poll, you get a unique SMS code and it is easy to share in your channels, offline as online.

Link to the poll from your website. Your website is the hub for many of your most loyal customers. With a link to the poll, you can secure an extra boost to the number of votes.

Ask for help from local news media. Positive attention to a particular place is also positive attention to the area. That is why your local newspaper, tourist office etc. also has something to gain by helping the nominees in their area. If you have them share your post / link to the poll, it can greatly improve your chances. We see many examples of this.

Privacy policy in connection with polls

To be able to make polls where you can nominate and vote for your favorites while we exclude attempts at cheating and the like, we use tools that use cookies and where you provide some non-sensitive information. You can read much more about our general cookie and privacy policybut, for good measure, we have included that part of the policy that applies to polls, then there is complete transparency.

Here's what you should be aware of:

& #8211; If you nominate a candidate via the comment box, you enter information about name, email address, and possibly website and commentary. This information is stored together with registration of IP address (for protection against spam) in our database

& #8211; When you vote, information about time, phone number and voice dialing is stored in our database, which only Discover Denmark has access to. We do this purely in order to show the number of votes and find a winner. None of this information is disclosed to 3rd party. 

& #8211; To prevent cheating, we continually check and contact some of the phone numbers that have been used to vote. Therefore, we may call you if you have voted.

You do not provide any sensitive information when you participate in our polls. The name, telephone number, mail and ip address are counted as personal data and we have therefore taken all security measures to ensure that no one besides OpdagDanmark's trusted employees can access this data.

We continually delete data from our polls when they are no longer used on the site.
