Sweden’s best campsites 2022 – 17 five-star campsites

Here comes a list of Sweden’s best campsites 2022, from the south to the north. All campsites have five stars and are members of SCR, the National Swedish Camping Association. If you want to book a cottage, camping hut or holiday home on one of these campsites, you can follow the respective Booking.com link under the description. (Some of the links do not work all-year round. They are deactivated off-season.)

Mötesplats Borstahusen, Landskrona, Skåne

Near the sea and a golf course. This campsite is also ideal if you want to visit the little island of Ven. 60 cottages and holiday homes to choose from. This is both a campsite and a holiday resort (with spa, golf, restaurant, shop). Open all-year round and popular in winter for Christmas and New Year.

Böda Sand, Löttorp, on the island of Öland

A complete holiday village with lots of activities and a 20-km white sandy beach with shallow water. A paradise for families with children. – It seems they missed the classification process for 2022. I can no longer see their classification result (they used to have five stars). But no doubt, this is one of Sweden’s best campsites, although not open all-year round. Often just called “Böda Camping”.
