They are a good place for fishing, hunting or just a nature walk.
The site can be either a natural area, such as a forest, or on a campsite. In most countries it must be in a camping accommodation or another approved location with necessary gear. In most European countries, camping outside for planned facilities (Wild camping) is not allowed or permitted only under strict conditions. The exception is Sweden, where the law allows you to stay a single night.
Camping became popular at the beginning of the 20th century and has become a popular vacation and travel form. Overnight stays in camping grounds are usually cheaper than in hotels; the prices have converged in the coveted holiday destinations and comfortable services during the busy season.
