Camping in Turkey

In the past few years, many Turkish towns have established camping camps, including  Yalova, where various nationalities and nature lovers resort to escape the hustle and the noise.

Camping sites vary throughout Turkiye (Turkey), and visitors can practice their hobbies, from surfing to cycling to fishing to climbing, along with meditation and discovering new hobbies during their visit.

Those wishing to practice this hobby need many “camping tools,” the most important of which are:

  • A camping bag.
  • A sleeping bag.
  • A flashlight.
  • A tent (must be durable and blocks various weather conditions).
  • A camping chair (an essential element for sitting and relaxing).
  • A small grill.
  • Garbage bags (to keep the camp clean).
  • First aid bag.
  • Fishing rod (for camping near lakes).

One of the most prominent features of camping is that it is a practical and great experience in all seasons and throughout the year. Since camping during the winter season has its taste, when the landscape and the view are entirely different from the summer, from the mountains and trees covered in white to the frozen lakes and rivers to the taking off their leaves, this is what distinguishes Yalova and its camping places during the cold season.

Camping lovers can pair hobbies in the summer, which also has its taste in terms of other activities during camping, such as hiking, swimming, biking, surfing, and relaxingly enjoying the beauty of nature.

During the camping period, we advise following many preventive measures and safety precursors to ensure safer camping, such as taking caution while setting the campfire to avoid any forest fires, taking into account a safe distance between one tent and another to prevent any fire from spreading and reaching the neighboring tent if it breaks out.

 Considering cooking outside and avoiding any gas leakage from the cooking stove and not cooking inside the tent, ensure the furnace’s safety before camping. Concerning safety and security, and ensuring the quality of all camping tools before leaving.
