Small campsites

If you want to enjoy a real camping holiday at a relaxing, small-scale campsite, ACSI Great Little Campsites are the perfect place. You can experience that genuine camping feeling and enjoy peace and the countryside at these small, intimate campsites.

Authentic campsites

There are small, delightful campsites for every camper! Many small-scale camping grounds are located in the countryside, in woodland or in the middle of mountain scenery. But our inspectors have also selected delightful mini-campsites within walking distance of villages or small towns. In this way you can relax at a quiet, natural campsite but still enjoy the buzz of a local market, restaurant or pavement café. And of course you can order fresh bread for breakfast at many small campsites.

Child-friendly campsites

Mini campsites and farm sites are often very child-friendly. It’s easy to keep an eye out on the attractive small-scale camping grounds, and children can play with the animals at a farm site. There is no large-scale organised entertainment here, but the warm, personal touch of a family campsite. If you camp at a mini-campsite or a farm site in low season, you will certainly benefit from a relaxed camping holiday in natural surroundings. You can go for lovely walks or cycle trips from these small campsites.

Natural campsites

Want to escape the pressure and hear only birdsong in the morning? You’ll get a real camping feeling at many small campsites. If you are looking for a quiet campsite as a base for taking walking, cycling or mountain trips, a small natural campsite is a fantastic holiday location. Many mini-campsites are close to water. You will also find small campsites by the sea. A small campsite next to a river or lake is often the place to rent a canoe, kayak or sailing boat for an active day out on the water. Several natural campsites also organise activities and excursions in the area, such as guided walks or game safaris.

Small campsites from Italy to Norway

If you are looking for a mini-campsite in Britain, a small campsite in France or a charming farm site or agriturismo in Italy, you will find a great selection of small, natural campsites throughout Europe. You can also choose from natural, intimate campsites in the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Czech Republic and more than 15 other countries.

Great Little Campsites

All Great Little Campsites have been selected by an ACSI inspector who visits the site again each year and inspects it based on more than 150 amenities. Small campsites have no more than 50 touring pitches where ambiance, friendliness and hospitality play a major part. Whether you are looking for a quiet mini-campsite with good, basic facilities or a small campsite with a swimming pool, restaurant or sports facilities, simply select the campsite of your choice.
