A good budget option for sleep and rest during the obligatory visit to the Plitvice Lakes. Whether you need to rest after visiting the lakes, or are on a repeat visit, this is an excellent choice, as the campsite is located within 10-15 kilometers of lakes, towards Karlovac. The area combines RV camping, tents, and a number of small bungalows near the entrance of the campsite. The bungalows are usually in high demand. In our case, we chose the latter option, and although the bungalows are very-very small, they are not bad for a night, with two single beds, one on each side. Inside the bungalow, which is more like a narrow triangle, it plays the joke of making me feel like a little gnome ;-). Moreover, as in all campsites, showers and toilets are in the center of the grounds, not far from the area where the bungalows are located, which is always appreciated. If you spend the night in bungalows with breakfast (very modest, having booked the night through booking.com), the bar area and the restaurant itself is a little further away, but hey, it's a good excuse to walk around the camp grounds. In fact, walking around the campsite is worth it. Because this area has a much clearer view than near the entrance. The views over the mountains, green forests and general surroundings deserve special attention, especially in the cool of the morning. In short, the Camping Korana is a no frills, economic option when visiting the Plitvice Lakes. And if you prefer not camping or bringing a motorhome, you can always stay in the bungalows, although they are few and tend to be in high demand, so in the summer you should book in advance.
5 km from the Plitvice National Park Lakes, just at the roadside you can sleep fabulously and have an even better breakfast with a caring touch surrounded by forest for 50 € / night. If you feel like it you go in into the forest to find a bear or wolf.
Hi, I have no photos of my stay at the Hotel Macola but that's almost better as the room we stayed in was tucked away in the the attic where even the lift couldn't reach ....... just as well we only had one night. The food is not bad but nothing to rave about, but I guess that around there is not much to choose from unless you stay in one of the hotels located in Plitvice Lakes.
