See all
If you want to sleep in the heart of nature, feel the fresh morning breeze on your skin and the grass between your toes, then North Jutland is the right place for you.

If you relish the simpler life outdoors you will have no trouble in Denmark, as there are almost 800 nature campgrounds.

The Danish shelter and tent sites are for all to use, but be advised that cars, caravans, trailers, and motorbikes are not allowed on the campgrounds.

The sites are scarcely furnished, but most offer campfire area and access to toilets nearby. A lot of the campgrounds also offer shelters, where you can stay the night without the need for a tent. The price for a night is fluctuating but with a max of 25 DKK per person. Payment methods differ, so it is best to read up on your specific campground before you go or call in advance to hear about availability, as they may be crowded during the summer season.

List of public campgrounds
The Danish Ministry of Environment and Food Nature Agency keeps an updated list and an interactive map of all public campgrounds. Find information about the size of the campground, the availability, the on-site utilities and more.
