More than 60,000 Swedish families have voted to choose the best campsites in the country within the Stora Barnsemester Awards 2019. The category ‘Best camping for families with kids’ started in 2012 and the winner of this year is the Daftö Resort campsite.
1. Daftö Resort in Strömstad
Repeating its success from 2016 and 2018, the Daftö Resort campsite has won the love and trust of the families and children who visit and who have chosen it as the best campsite in Sweden.
Last year Daftö Resort also was granted the prestigious Superplatz award by the German automotive association ADAC with more than 19 million members. Daftö Resort is the only campsite in Sweden with this recognition which is comparable to winning an Oscar or achieving a Michelin star.
