Where can I camp in Poland?
There are over 345 official campsites in Poland where you can spend the most wonderful time alone, with friends or family members. If you choose one of these places you will be able to enjoy the seacoast, lakes, rivers, and hike beautiful mountains.
Poland doesn’t have many mountains and is rather flat so in most cases, you will camp around the water (lakes and sea). Wild camping is prohibited as in many other European countries.
If you want to experience camping in Warsaw then choose Camping 123 Zajazd Majawa or WOK campground.
Is wild camping legal in Poland?
Wild camping and free-standing aren’t allowed here. The authorities control the coast areas and nature reserves. If they catch you, you can pay up to 120€.
However, they aren’t so strict on rural areas where you can stay on private land with the approval of the landowner.
No matter that you are not allowed to camp in the wild you can get permission to do it in private and public places.
