Easter holidays are one of the periods of the year that camping lovers prefer for camping. The weather around this time is normally quite nice, the days last longer and the previous holidays finished long time ago. It is the perfect time to get your tent or caravan out and spend some pleasant days with your family or friends in any place of our country.
Tips to choose a campsite
Type of campsite
The first thing you have to think of is what kind of holidays you wish to have.
If you want to find a campsite to enjoy the nature relaxation, the best place to go will be a camp in the mountains. There are loads of them in the main geographic areas like nature parks or reserves, etc. We can find an example of this kind of campsite in the High Pyrenees area where you can enjoy nature in its purest splendor.
If you wish to enjoy the mountain but also have an adrenaline injection then the best thing to do is to find a campsite with a large selection of adventure sports, even better if they offer ground and aquatic sports. We can find some examples of this type of campsite in the Picos de Europa Mountains.
On the other hand, if you prefer beach tourism, then the best option is to look for a campsite close to the coast. To be farsighted, just in case the weather is not as good as we expected, the best thing to do is to find a campsite that is as close to the beach as it is to a town. So, if the weather changes we can always plan some activities in town. You can find a perfect example of this kind of campsite in the wide offer that you have in camping in Benidorm.
Logically we will be looking for a camp that is close to what we are interest in.
Apart from that, as long as it is possible and it does not interfere in our holiday plans, it is convenient that the campsite is placed near a town.
It is even more important if it is a holiday with children. Being close to a town insures that we have access to some services that may be necessary in this case, such as medical emergencies, chemists, etc. and to some leisure activities such as cinemas, shopping centers, etc.
Another important characteristic is to make sure that the camping place has a good transport communication. It is better if it has a close access to a motorway or a main road and some good roads around so we will be able to visit all those interesting points that we have chosen in the area.
Types of accommodation
Nowadays, nearly all the campsites have a wide kind of accommodation. Although that we can classified them in plots, bungalows and mobile homes you can always choose into a big variety in any of them.
If we refer to plots, normally we classified them for their size and the kind of accommodation you can put in them: tents, caravans, motor homes, etc. Bungalows and mobile homes are classified by the model which depends on the material they are made of and the amount of people they can sleep in.
Quality and quantity on the basic facilities
Another important point to choose a campsite, apart from the kind of accommodation available, is its basic facilities. We have to consider the quantity but more importantly the quality.
It is advisable to view the camping plan so we can evaluate if it has enough communal facilities to give a good service in the case of being fully occupied. Check that there are enough toilet blocks, sinks, etc. and the size of them as well as if there is a laundry service. It is not only important to check on the amount of these facilities, we have to consider the state on them, check if they are well looked after, if they are clean daily and if they are fully equipped or they just have the basic.
In conclusion, to choose a good campsite to spend our Easter holidays is not difficult, but we have to consider some basic tips so we can assure we get the holidays we dream off.
