Certification and classification

All campsites on Camping.se are certified by SCR Swedish Camping. Many are also classified according to the Swedish quality system for campsites, SCR Classification. Together, the two systems make it more secure and easier for you to find the best campsite for your needs.


Certification is based on an annual review of the basic requirements that a campsite must meet to become a member of SCR. Certification ensures that a campsite complies with applicable laws and regulations, as well as industry rules on good business ethics and sustainable management. 

SCR classification

The classification of Swedish campsites is based on a quality system. The rating, from 1-5 stars, gives you a quick idea of the standard you can expect at the campsite. The system is designed to make it easier to find accommodation that meets your expectations.

up to 5 stars

The stars summarise the ratings given to the campsite in four areas: service buildings, the area, facilities and activities. The highest rating is 5 stars.

SCR Classification

Bar ratings complement each star rating with a more detailed description of each area. The classification is based on an assessment of what an individual campsite has to offer its guests. It assesses the campsite’s offering (hard criteria) and how it delivers on this offering (soft criteria). The classification system rates the offering and standard of the campsite with 5 bar ratings, each with 5 levels.

Service buildings
