Description

The perfect book to have stored in your motorhome for those times when you might just find yourself somewhere you didn't expect to be. Although not as comprehensive as a country-specific guide, Camperstop is a lifeline to new places and offers a good overview of motorhome stopovers throughout Europe. 

Camperstops might be more commonly known as Aires, Stopovers and sometimes, incorrectly, wild camping. These overnight motorhome parking areas are exclusively for motorhomes and campervans. Camperstop Europe is written in English by Dutch publisher, Facile Media.

How to use Camperstop 2017

Format
40 maps covering the 27 countries are at the beginning of the Camperstop Europe guide. Stopovers are identified on the map with a red dot next to the town name. The stopover listing can be located via the index adjacent to the mapping or in the alphabetical index at the back. Both indexes include symbols next to the town name to show at a glance what type of stop over it is.

Brief information is provided at the start of each country section on driving regulations and includes general information like dialling codes, emergency numbers, currency and some parking regulations.

Listings
The listings start with a coloured block detailing the type of stopover, town name and map reference. They then detail the address, GPS coordinates in the format: n52,39185 e7,05025 as well as an accompanying photo for most listings. There are no directions for any listings. A few descriptive words may be given as 'Remarks' at the end of the listing (i.e. At the edge of the village.). The guide lists the number of parking spaces and cost of services and most entries now have a brief description of the type of location (i.e. quiet, rural) and the parking surface (i.e. gravel). This is followed by opening times and distances to useful facilities identified by symbols (restaurants, town centre). Some entries also have supporting tourist information, which may include museums, markets, buildings, etc. (i.e. 'Modern port city and seaside resort with casino and horse race track'). Postcodes are not supplied in this publication.

Type of Stopovers
Camperstop divides the stopovers into more than six types, including Aires (official motorhome areas), tolerated parking areas (discussed below), campsites, restaurants, farms and marinas.

"Overnight parking tolerated" areas

Camperstop also includes many "overnight parking tolerated" areas and these are often the source of much controversy in the motorhoming world. These stopovers can be very convenient, free and in idyllic locations; but as they are unofficial, they can often be unreliable. This is why this guide is also known as the Marmite guide.

"Overnight parking tolerated" areas are described by the publisher as: "officially prohibited but tolerated by local authorities". There about 1,000 unofficial parking areas in this edition of the Camper Stop Europe book. They are usually fine to use as long as you keep your chattels inside your camper and don't park somewhere that causes offence or contravenes any laws. However, it is good to be aware that by putting these places into print it is likely that many motorhomers descend on one spot, and this can cause problems.

Country Specific guides
