Camping in Gdansk
If you come to Gdansk during a long trip, it is possible that you have a tent with you and would like to put it up somewhere to save some money. Unfortunately, it is not possible to put up your tent wherever you want. Unless you want to go outside the city to put up your tent in the surrounding forest (which is also illegal and you might be fined if you are found), you need to look for official camping in Gdansk.
There are 3 camping sites in Gdansk:
Campings in Gdansk Stogi
There are two sites in Gdansk Stogi, both located very close to each other
This site is a good place if you want to be close to the beach and in a relatively calm environment. Prices are moderate: 12/17 PLN/ tent + 12/17 PLN per person. No additional fees for showers, toilets and kitchen, but local tax (2,22 PLN/person/night) is not included. The camping is situated close to Stogi Beach tram stop, about 20 minutes from the city centre and just five minutes away from Gdansk Stogi beach. Camping offers free WiFi.
This one is just a few meters away from Stogi 218. Prices are almost the same: 12/17 PLN/ tent + 14/18 PLN per person. Local tax applies (2,22 PLN/person/night). The facilities are mostly the same, plus the camping area is secured with a surveillance camera.
Camping in Gdansk Jelitkowo
The other camping option is Camping Park 45, located on the border between Sopot and Gdansk Jelitkowo. This one is even closer to the beach, but a bit further from the city centre. Also, the standard is a bit higher form those in Gdansk Stogi, but it is closer to bars and restaurants, so it might be a bit noisy in the evening. It may also be more crowded. Prices are 14-27 PLN/tent and 19 PLN/person. As the camping is formally located in Sopot, the local tax is higher: 4,4 PLN/person/night.
