For many, the best accommodation is the one you find under starry skies. Romania’s stunning natural diversity is best admired up close, so spending both your days and nights in nature is a great option. While glampsites are still a new addition to the list of accommodation options you can find in Romania, there are plenty of campsites from which to choose. Here are our favourites.

Ursa Mica Glamping Resort

Located in Nucșoara, Argeș County, about one hour drive from Sibiu, Ursa Mica is the first glamping resort in Romania. Set at the foot of the picturesque Făgăraș Mountains, the resort offers ten tents furnished with four beds and all the comfort you could ask for in the middle of nature. Those who glamp here have three meals a day in the resort’s restaurant, as well as access to a sauna and outdoor tubs.

If you’re looking for a place that epitomises the spirit of Vama Veche, the wild-at-heart Black Sea resort Sandalandala is it. Rent a tent or bring your own and squeeze it on the green meadows surrounded by trees, then drop everything and let yourself experience the freedom of being there. Just minutes from the beach, it has a kitchen serving breakfast and delicious pizzas and a bar open till late.

Borșa Turism

Run by a Dutch couple enthusiastic about the natural and cultural treasures of Maramureș, Borșa Turism is located in a great spot for those who want to explore the surrounding peaks. If planning to tackle the Pietrosu Rodnei peak, the campsite will provide you with a restful night right at the foot of the trail. For an instant immersion into nature, place your tent in the orchard and enjoy the sights. Offering more than 50 day trips on foot, by bike or even by motorcycle, the hosts will make sure you’ve seen the best of Borșa and more.

Mustang Camping

A few minutes away from Sovata, a spa mountain resort famed for its therapeutical mud, Mustang Camping is set along a river at the foot of Ghurghiu Mountains. The campsite has a fully equipped kitchen as well as a large barbecue area, which are usually the liveliest spaces. Due to its size, this family- and pet-friendly campsite remains quiet even at weekends when most tourists arrive. Visit at any time during the warm months, but if you happen upon Câmpu Cetăţii for the Balloon parade in September, your visit will be even more special.

Mamaia, the luxury resort on the Romanian Black Sea, has a different side to it. Away from the loud beaches where world famous DJs love to mix all night long for the roaring crowds, at Camping S Mamaia, the days and especially the nights remain quiet. Offering green lawns for your tent between the trees, it is the cheapest alternative to the resort’s hotels and will put you just minutes away from the beach.

Aquaris Camping

Set right in the centre of Sighişoara, the medieval citadel where Vlad the Impaler was born, Aquaris Camping offers guests what they expect and more. Apart from all the facilities you can expect in a camping site, here you can also enjoy an evening by the pool after a full day of sightseeing.

Camping Zetea

About 300 meters from the shore of the charming Zetea Lake, this campsite offers a pleasant setting for those who want to spend a couple of days and nights in nature. Perfectly suited for water sports lovers, the lake’s water gets warm in July and remains that way throughout August. Well suited for families, the camping has a barbecue area and a terrace serving local beers.

Camping Floare de colţ

Located in the heart of Transylvania, Rimetea is one of the most special spots you can visit. The village, whose houses were rebuilt in traditional styles after a great fire destroyed them in the 19th century, is an open-air museum set in a stunning natural setting. Located in the vicinity of Cluj-Napoca, the campsite offers access to the surrounding natural attractions, such as Cheile Turzii, Valea Mănăstirii and Salina Turda.

Camping International

Located close to the Bega River, in the vicinity of Pădurea Verde, a charming forest near Timișoara, Camping International provides visitors with a great alternative to city accommodation. Here you can have the best of both worlds, as the city and its attractions are just minutes away, and the campsite’s natural setting offers endless opportunities for exploration.
