Turkey boasts of a colourful historical timeline, Mediterranean and desert climate, plenty of sun, sea, and sand, nomadic passion, and great cuisine. Therefore camping in Turkey could be a popular travel genre but sadly the Turkish government has never actively promoted this tourism opportunity to the outside world.

Although the campsites along the Aegean coast are extremely popular and at times busy, the Çanakkale province offers something slightly different.
