Croatian Camps in ADAC Guide
In this year's camp guide of the German automobile club ADAC, «Camping Caravaning Fuehrer», considered by many to be the bible of campists in Germany and beyond, Croatia is once again presented as a high quality camping destination with amazing nature, and a destination regularly investing into raising the quality of its offering.

Inspectors of the ADAC particularly point out the quality of the sanitary facilities in camps of Istria and northern Dalmatia as well as the ever increasing number of quality and equipped lots in the camps.  The guide, celebrating its 60th anniversary, introduces 103 Croatian camps, 19 of which have been marked with a special symbol, representing a significant improvement in quality compared to last year.

Two camps received the prestigious rating «Super platz», i.e. the «red plaquette». These are the camps Park Umag, which received the same rating last year, and Zaton, which has received the «Super platz» rating for the past four years. Only 80 European camps have received this rating, for their above-average offering in sanitary facilities, camp site, hospitality and commerce, recreation and animation.

Camps that have received the yellow ADAC plaquette, signifying camps that have achieved remarkable results, a significant improvement and left a good impression, are the same as last year – Zaton in Zadar, Kanegra, Stella Maris, Park Umag and Finida in Umag, Lanterna and Solaris in Poreč, Poljana in Mali Lošinj, Vira on Hvar and Nevio in Orebić.

Croatian camps have received an average rating of 2.45 in this year's ADAC guide. The German inspectors have given the highest rating to Istrian camps – 3.26 – and the biggest improvement was achieved by the camps of the Zadar County, with an average rating of 2.38. The ADAC inspectors evaluated the overall development of the camps, accessibility of facilities and activities, gastronomy, investments and other. According to the results, Croatian camps are best in the segment of supply and gastronomy, followed by camp sites, while animation of guests received the lowest rating. This year, Croatia is also featured in the ADAC guide for camp rest areas. Out of the 3,500 rest areas in 21 European countries, 15 are in Croatia, two more than last year. Six of them are in Istria, six in Dalmatia, two in Lika and one on Kvarner.

The very first Istrian camp rest area, Farm Pino in Katun on Poreština, is the only one to have received the rating «Komfort Stellplatz» for the quality of its services and facilities. This is the very first award given to a Croatian camp rest area, among one hundred areas from all over Europe.

Today, there are around 6 thousand camping rest areas registered in Europe, 3,500 of which are covered by the 2010 ADAC guide. According to data, there are around 3 million camper owners in Europe, and around 90 thousand new campers are bought each year.

One of the leading Dutch camping guides, ANWB Campinggids, has put 82 Croatian camps in its 2010 issue. It has given the best rating to Lanterna, Solaris and Ulika from Poreč and Orsera from Vrsar. The swimming pool complexes in the six Istrian camps received the maximum rating. These are the pools in Lanterna and Zelena Laguna in Poreč, Valalta and Veštra in Rovinj, and Park Umag and Bi Village in Fažana.

The rating «ANWB recommends» went to camp Kovačine on Cres, Konobe and Pila in Punto, Adriatic in Šibenik and Rio and Zaton in Zadar.
