Denmark has a large number of campsites, mostly of a very high standard. On our Travel Tips page  we give further information about campsite listings and web sites, and advice on maps and guide books.

The interactive map (right) gives the location of all the campsites used by us in Denmark on our August~October 2007 trip.

Click on the map's campsite locations to link to
 in the table below     

In the table, we give details of campsite name and reference number, location and the date of our stay, and our assessment comments and rating particularly based on attitudinal factors. It is important to stress that prices quoted, and comments on features such as occupancy and noise levels relate to the dates we stayed there.

During the early autumn period, most of the sites were largely empty and therefore peaceful; in peak summer holiday times, they would be the very opposite.
