In Denmark, you have around 570 campsites to choose from, so there's a wealth of options for sleeping out in Denmark’s countryside. Campsite standards tend to be very high in Denmark, with well-maintained facilities, great security and plenty of space for individual units. A campsite is awarded between one and five stars for quality and a site with three or more stars will be supervised around the clock.
Danish campsites are often located in some of the country's most scenic areas and around two thirds are next to water, perfect for an early morning dip. Even so, being a relatively small country means that it’s never far to the nearest city and restaurants and entertainment.
An overnight stay typically costs around 75kr for an adult (at a three-star Danish campsite), while you usually pay half price for children. Some campsites charge an environmental fee. You will typically pay between 20 and 30kr per day for electricity use. Some campsites only open in the summer, but the 200 sites that open all year round often have cheaper rates available off peak season.
You can rent cabins in many of Denmark’s campsites and you typically bring your own linen along, unless you are paying for a luxury cabin. A week's cabin rental costs around 3,500kr at peak season.
About 200 campsites in Denmark are open during the winter months, so with a well insulated caravan (and good thick socks!) you can enjoy the Danish outdoors all year round.
