The summer camp in Biograd na moru is an organized holiday away from home for the whole family. Holiday camps are often located in forested or mountainous areas that are popular holiday spots. They are located in attractive locations and near the sea, lakes or rivers. It is a place where tents, tent cabins, camping cottages, cabins or other facilities are located that are offered to the public for their temporary stay.
Camping as a recreational activity became popular among tourists during the 20th century, and during the 21st century numerous changes took place and the so-called glamping (a kind of glamorous camping that takes place in modern houses, log cabins or tents). Modern campers visit publicly owned natural resources such as national and state parks, wilderness areas, and commercial campgrounds.
Camps for summer vacations are designed in many ways, and as a rule, they offer their users facilities such as accommodation, barbecues, utilities, shared bathrooms and laundry facilities, access to recreational facilities, etc. Camps can vary from “bare” land to paved areas with sewage and electricity, and many public and private campgrounds also offer options for campers to come or rent mobile homes. In addition to RVs, tourists can come to the camp by motorcycle, bicycle, boat, etc. Tent camping sites are often cheaper than full-service mobile homes, and most allow direct access by car.
A mobile home is a prefabricated structure used for vacation. In the camp, it is often placed in a permanent or semi-permanent place, but it can be moved at any time. Mobile homes share the same historical origins as travel trailers, but today the two are very different categories. When setting up mobile homes, a lot of cosmetic work is done to hide the base of the mobile home, axles, wheels or towing hooks. Ultimately, they represent accommodation for the average family that offers all the most important facilities for a smooth vacation, such as bedrooms and living rooms, fully equipped bathrooms and kitchens, covered terraces, attractive locations near the sea, etc.
A caravan is a trailer that is towed behind a road vehicle to provide a sleeping place that is more comfortable and protected than a tent. It allows people to have their own home in the camp, without relying on hotel accommodation. As a rule, such campers are limited to certain places for which fees are paid. Caravans vary from basic models that can be little more than a tent on wheels to those that contain several rooms with all the furniture and equipment of a home. The construction of full-wall trailers can be made of metal or fiberglass.
Campers or “homes on wheels” are motor vehicles that are a combination of a car and a bus. It is a vehicle that allows passengers to be transported from one place to another, and at the same time they have a place to sleep, a minimalist kitchen and a bathroom. Such vehicles provide everything necessary for a stay on a trip and are therefore created for a long-term stay in them. Today, campers are synonymous with freedom, savings and ecology. The advantages of this type of tourism are intense socializing with family and friends, an adventurous feeling, flexibility of travel, savings and completely free planning of the annual vacation.
From all of the above, we can see how today tourism is increasingly developing in the direction of complete freedom and independence from hotel accommodation. People prefer the use of mobile homes, campers and caravans because it provides them with a certain amount of individuality and freedom, and yet they have secured accommodation in attractive locations and the possibility of using additional facilities provided by each camp.
