Camping Plitvice is located in central Croatia, more precisely in the village Smoljanac, which is part of the Municipality of Plitvice Lakes and Lika-Senj County. Nearby, on the east side, is the state border of Bosnia and Herzegovina. We could say that by staying in our camp, you are staying in the heart of Croatia.

A little less than five thousand inhabitants live on an area of 470.79 km², and the area itself is surrounded by mountains. On the west side there is Mala Kapela (known as Gvozd), and on the east Plješivica (known as Vražji vrt which served in defense against Turkish attacks) with the highest peak 1646 m above sea level, also the highest peak of this area. The natural resources of this area are diverse animal species such as birds, butterflies and wildlife (deer, wolves, lynxes, bears) as well as forests (beech, hornbeam, fir).
Strategically positioned Camping Plitvice is located at an equal distance of one hour by car towards Gospić on the south side (69 km) or Karlovac on the north side (78.5 km). The unique experience of contrast in as many as three different climatic and vegetative changes is the close proximity to the sea, and continental and Mediterranean climates, although the area is predominantly mountainous.

Douglas planes are still used in Africa today to transport goods. According to the connoisseurs of airplanes, this airplane is excellently made and with simple mechanics has its purpose even after 70 years!
