First, let’s see what camping means. Camping should mean “camping, setting up camps or other emergency facilities for the purpose of temporary accommodation.”


Open-air camping is regulated by the Law on the Protection of Law and Order. Article 18 defines that wild camping “is in a public place not specified for this purpose or in a private area without the consent of the owner or landowner” is punishable. The general penalty is EUR 83.46, which was calculated from the original penalty of 20,000 former tolars. The law also stipulates that self-governing local communities may, by their regulations, determine the conditions, ranges and ranks of camping in their area. For example, the penalty for wild camping in the Triglav National Park (or elsewhere) is considerably higher.


You will not be sentenced if you are on private property and you will be given a permit from the owner before camping. The law also regulates motor homes (campers). They can only be located at night in the areas that are scheduled for stopping. Penalties may be imposed by the police and the appropriate inspection service. Fishing guards and fishing families that operate with a particular district do not have anything to do with camping unless the land is around a property owned or rented by designated fishing family. Only in this case is the fishing family responsible for forming the order of camping.

If we do not have the proper permission, fishermen can NOT build a tent and go camping. We asked the Fisheries Inspection for its opinion, which confirmed this. A fisherman may have only a cape or umbrella on the water to protect himself against weather conditions (rain, sunburn). The fisherman generally has the right only to access the water body, but not to camping, making fire, parking the vehicle and littering.
