Camping on Corfu, Greece: 5 campsites on the island

Corfu Island is calling and you have to answer! Do you want to have a great time on a budget? In this article, we will share 5 campsites with you, which offer everything for a wonderful Corfu camping experience without going bankrupt. Last summer we were camping on the island for the first time and we liked it so much that we did some serious research on other campsites to try out. We share the results of the research and our impressions and we hope you find them useful.

We have a few remarks for your stay on the island. We recommend that you come by car or rent one to explore the beaches and other sights of Corfu at your own will and pace. Also, there are not many campsite options on the island, so it is advisable to contact them and book as early as possible.

Campsites in Corfu, and in Greece in general, usually have sufficient hygiene facilities. They are well-maintained and cleaned regularly, which we know is important for everyone. And as soon as we reassured you about the cleanliness and tranquility in the bathrooms and toilets, we must mention that Corfu has a problem with garbage collection, and overflowing garbage containers often spoil the idyllic atmosphere. What we can do as travelers, is to try to reduce our waste.

Camping in Greece is one of our favorite things in the summer and even in the fall. The island of Corfu itself offers many different types of great accommodation, but if you want to be closer to nature and not spend a whole fortune – campsites are a very nice, although slightly scarce alternative on the island.

Dolphin Camping

Dolphin Camping is our favorite campsite in Corfu, it was our first campsite on the island. Quiet place with a large yard, the owner Babis has a great personality, there is a kitchen with refrigerators (free), laundry (paid), and wi-fi. Until recently, there was a restaurant/bar, but Babis decided to shut it down, so now the tables are used freely by guests at the campsite. In general, the facilities are a bit old, but the cleanliness is maintained and there was always hot water in the showers. You have to bring your own tent/camper/caravan unless you want to sleep under the stars (which some people actually did and were happy with).

You can reach the wilder part of Sidari beach in 5-6 minutes on foot from the campsite and the main commercial street of Sidari – in 15 minutes. There is a small shop within a 5-minute walk and in Sidari, there are several supermarkets (better go there by car). You can’t pay by card at the campsite, but we paid around 120 euros for a week there – according to other campers, this is the cheapest campsite in Corfu. The only thing we didn’t like was the mosquitoes. Sprays, repellents, mosquito coils – there was nothing to help us get rid of these buddies. So we decided to buy a patio canopy with a mosquito net, but that’s another story.

Roda Beach Camping

Another family business is located in the village of Roda on the north coast of Corfu. The biggest advantage of this campsite is the pool, which is available for camp guests and is located right next to the small tavern/bar. The beach is a 20-minute walk away and the accommodation is in a mixed-shade garden and olive trees. Although some of the facilities are old, the cleanliness is maintained.

Here, too, the rule is to bring your home – tent, caravan, camper, van.

Karda Beach Camping & Bungalows

Any party animals here? If you like to have fun until dawn and you are not bothered by the noise of people returning late and passing planes, then this may be your campsite. There is also a swimming pool, and Dassia Beach is just around the corner. And here, as “traditionally” at the campsites in Corfu, the facilities are a bit outdated. You can stay in your tent or camper or in one of their mobile homes.

The good thing is that you can enjoy their caravans and you can even reserve through Booking.com. We recommend that you book (when possible) through well-known platforms – because that way there will be someone to help you with your rights if you do not get along with the management of the campsite.

Camping Village Dionysus

The advantage of this campsite is that it is very close to the ferry terminal and to Corfu Town. There is no beach nearby which means you need a car. There are tents, bungalows, and space for campers and caravans, and you can rent a sleeping bag. There is also a swimming pool, which is very useful as there is no beach nearby.

The facilities are clean and maintained, there are taverns nearby. An interesting thing is the so-called “shelters” – small cottages without windows that can accommodate 1-2 people.

Camping Paleokastritsa

And very close to Paleokastritsa Bay, one of the most popular places on the island, we can stay at the campsite of the same name in the village of the same name. There is no swimming pool, but there are beaches nearby. You can pitch your tent, come with a camper, caravan, van, or even a boat with a trailer. Or use some of their single and double tents.

Because the campsite is quite large, it can be quite noisy. But whoever wants to be in the center of the action or to park their boat after sailing will probably not mind. There are shops and taverns nearby, and olive trees grow in the camp’s garden.

Book their tents here: Camping Paleokastritsa, for info and other accommodation – their website.
