Family campsites with pool for active vacations

The best part about camping in the Zadar region is always having an option: If you enjoy swimming in the sea but other members of your family prefer going to the pool, there’s no need to choose, as both options are available in most campsites. Your kids will love the waterslides in the water parks and the campsite animation team will keep them safe and busy on playgrounds and in various workshops all day long so you are free to catch up on some reading in a lounger, enjoy a cocktail or simply relax and get some sun. After you recharge you might be interested in some sports or do a little sightseeing by taking part in one of the numerous tours available, so you can work up your appetite before dinner.

Pet-friendly campsites on islands

Talking about families: Most people consider their pets as full-fledged members of the family. Luckily there are plenty of pet-friendly campsites in the region that offer several accommodation options, where your pet is welcome. Those campsites provide extra facilities for pets too, such as dog showers and dog beaches. And since dogs (but also people) need regular exercise, there are often long and scenic walking paths right next to the sea for those long daily strolls. People with pets tend to be more active which is why campsites with pool and/or a nearby waterpark are often their first choice. But whether you camp with pets or no pets, alone, with a partner, family or a group of friends, you will always appreciate the amazing nature, the nice weather and the crystal clear sea surrounding the campsites in the region.

Mobile homes with sea view and glamping

You love being one with nature yet you need some more space for yourself and your family? By choosing a mobile home the levels of space, comfort and privacy increase immediately – some mobile homes even have a private pool or a hot tub. Island Pag offers a wide selection of mobile homes: From basic to genuine designer units with extra comfort and luxury. And let’s not forget about glamping options either. Numerous mobile homes are available in Biograd na Moru and Paklenica, too. There are also plenty of pet-friendly mobile homes throughout those destinations. One thing they all have in common is the amazing sea view.

Biograd na Moru

This lovely coastal town on a small peninsula with one of the most modern marinas in Croatia welcomed the first tourists over 100 years ago. It has been an important trading and maritime hub throughout its history but now it focuses on fishing and tourism. There are two campsites south of the town: Campsite Park Soline and Campsite Ljutić. Both of them present a perfect starting point for their nature-loving guests, since national parks Kornati, Telašćica and Vrana Lake are literally within arm’s reach.

Starigrad

You cannot talk about Starigrad without mentioning the national park Paklenica – a real paradise for rock climbers and hikers.

Good food is always just around the corner and the beautiful beaches offer everything you need if all you want to do is relax in the sun.
