Hi Folks

We are experienced motorhomers and have done a fair amount of Europe over the years from Portugal to Greece and all points in between for some reason we have never done Croatia, we intend to head there this year via (Hull/Rotterdam) Mid May to end of June, have tried an Internet search but I can't seem to get an answer about the weather,would be grateful if you good people could give us some idea.

Regards

Keith

It'll be hot in June and getting busy with German and Austrian campers and their motorboats and jetskis. May will be OK and the sea will be warming up nicely. IMHO, September is the best time to visit Croatia.

 For info on campsites  look here https://www.camping.hr/

Big camps with thousand pitches or minikamps like CLs

We have spent September 6 times now in Istria. By then the sea will be 23-25 degrees after the summer sun but its undeniable that the weather is on the turn and by the end of the month we have experienced lots of heavy rain and its no surprise  the large sites close en-mass first week in October. However given the chance we will be back there in September this year too.

As a motorhomer, two sites that are by the sea and within walking distance of the town are Jezevac on the island of Krk, and Kovacine on the island of Cres. Ferries are turn up, pay and go. Krk reached by bridge.

Camping Krk is one of the best kept sites we’ve ever been on, well worth a visit.

The month of May is normally warm (although in 2019 it was not so but hopefully that was a 1 in 50 year hick-up). The weather in June is normally warm and beautiful. In July and August you would certainly need aircon in your unit.

Generally a coastal destination, but a visit to Plitvice Lakes National Park in central Croatia is very worthwhile -  warm & dry when we visited in May. I particularly like Autocamp Draga (ACSI 925) at Moscenicka Draga and the elegant resort of Opatija nearby.

We had a great but very tiring day at the lakes.  We didnt want to move sites so left the van at a coatal site and took a coach trip there .

That’s one way, but I’d recommend staying over at Camping Korana and use the shuttle bus to visit the lakes. Can get very busy with tourists (in normal times!) so plan to arrive early/late and ideally do the lake circuit in reverse. Lots of walking necessary to do the place justice.
