First in Western Serbia - 18 mini campsites in rural households

Mini campsites in rural households are an example of innovative integrated tourism product that is created based on identified market niches and existing capacity on the territory. This type of accommodation represents special attraction to tourists who prefer adventure and activity based tourism and the preparation of campsite for tourist receipt requires low investments, comparing to other types of accommodation, so as the quick return on investment (less than three months).  They emanate sales of local meals and traditional/typical products towards which the consumption of campers is directed encouraging rural development and reduction of rural-urban migrations, especially of youth.

 

During the spring, Camping association of Serbia (CAS), in organisation of 8 local tourism organisations and with the support of Private sector development programme, held presentations to 78 registered/categorised households out of which 55 interested ones were paid attention to minimal technical conditions needed for mini campsite arrangement. By the beginning of summer tourist season, 18 mini camps were established. Investments in arranging camps are fully funded by the hosts. 

 The camp that was independently established during the previous year served as an example of good practice and an example of planning a camping area. This camp registered 82 nights before this year summer tourist season and over 400 overnight during the season.

CAS successfully promotes mini campsites. Unique Facebook page is published in Serbian, English and German, campsites are promoted on the website of CAS (www.camping.rs) and Map of mini camps is published and distributed.  The interest for mini campsites and expanding of this concept to the other parts of Serbia is, also, shown, by Serbian Chamber of Commerce and Tourism organisation of Serbia.
