September 25th, 2019 Camp Herzog

Nice small private owned campground on green lawn in a quite area in Praque. Owner very friendly and speaks German and English. There are several spots in this street and this one was the cheapest. Paid 360 without electricity. Clean toilets and hot showers. You walk about 5-10 minutes to the tram and then drive 15 minutes and you are in the middle of the center. Free fast WIFI.

September 24th, 2019 Free official camping

It is a parking lot next to a park/stadium but it is explicitly allowed to camp here. There are 4 spots with electricity and water. The spots were full and we didn't need electricity, so we camped on the other side of the parking lot. Also bins available. Everything is for free! Quite at night. There is also a big playground for children.

September 14th, 2019 Free Picnic And Camping Zone

Really nice place. Officially it is 5 Ron pppn but nobody came for collecting the money. When you enter the road leading to this place there are several signs saying that it is prohibited to enter with a car. But there were also some locals camping here and they said it would be no problem and also the police passed several times and just waved friendly.

September 12th, 2019 Place next to river

September 8th, 2019 Camping Honigberg

Nothing to add, perfect place and perfectly clean. Friendly German speaking staff. Washing machine is for free! Near a nice big playground if you travel with children. Added a picture of the price list.

September 8th, 2019 Quite place in forest

Quite place at a big clearing in the forest. We drove almost till the end and found a nice place a bit uphill to the right. Therefore 4x4 is recommended. But you can also stay a bit nearer to the road without 4x4. A lot of space for any kind of vehicles. Even on a weekend, we saw only two locals with their cars picnicking. Completely quite at night. Internet signal depends on your spot. We had 4G with Telekom but there are also spots without connection. Lot of shade from trees available. Really clean place.
Edit: In the morning (10am) came the really friendly jandarma and said that it is not allowed to camp and make picnic here. At the end it is up to you if you want to risk it.

September 5th, 2019 Lakeside

Good place to spend a night or two at a lake (swimming forbidden). Plenty of space for any kind of vehicle around the lake. Access road is a bit bumby. 2wd enough but drive slowly. A lot of shade from trees. 4G signal with A1. Completely quite, we saw nobody. Just a few people on the other side of the lake. A bit of trash lying around.

September 1st, 2019 Mishkova Niva near border

Perfect place for spending the night before or after border crossing. Plenty of space for any kind of vehicle. We drove down but bigger rigs can stay in the parking lot. Some friendly tourists came, watched Mishkova Niva and left. Completely quite at night. Lot of shade from trees. Still 3G with Turkish turkcell.

August 28th, 2019 Toyocar garage

Perfect garage for Toyotas. The boss Yücel Toptas used to work for Toyota and now he has his own business. Can arrange original spare parts and you can normaly get a short term appointment within one or two days. Very friendly people and good work for a fair price. Highly recommended!

August 25th, 2019 Shelter in a ruin

After our border crossing we were looking for a shelter against heavy wind, rain and even hail and we found this ruin. There is a lot of trash lying around and it is not a pretty place but it does its job. In the evening the friendly border police came and said that it was no problem to stay here overnight. Even big rigs could find a place here. For smaller cars like our hilux no problem. You can hear the road and depending which spot you choose you are visible from the road. But nobody bothered. 4G signal with Magti.

August 17th, 2019 Meadow between borders

Perfect place before or after border crossing. After our 6 hours border crossing (we had no problems, it was just really busy on a Saturday afternoon in the holidays) we were happy to have this place. Even in darkness it was easy to find this spot. Suitable for any kind of vehicle. There is also an abandoned house that you can use for shelter to pitch a tent. Really quite at night. So close to the border still 3G with Georgian Magti.

August 12th, 2019 Ushba Glacier

As we didn't like the other places on ioverlander we found this one perfect. It is a big level lawn for any kind of vehicle. You are completely out of sight. 4x4 not necessary. Only some cows and horses passed. 4G with Magti.

August 11th, 2019 Near beach

Big flat level place on grass with plenty of space for any kind of vehicle. Almost no rubbish around. Away from the road so really quite, only 4 locals passed by walk. Access to beach but beach is full of rubbish (never seen so much rubbish!). So better stay here. Two access ways to this spot. Watch google satellite. 4G with Magti

August 9th, 2019 Grassy spot next to river

Beautiful place but unfortunately there were three local men drinking there and annoying us. At the end, they were so drunken and we were so annoyed that we left the place.
