Officially, wild camping is not allowed in Montenegro, and fines can be up to 100 euros. However, since most of the land here is private, you can set up a camp on a land plot if you have received permission from the owner. In practically all cases, permission is granted if you ask.

On the other hand, without knowing the language and going door to door in a nearby village, it can be difficult to find the owner. Locals have a strong sense of ownership and report to each other about what is happening on their land plots, as wood poaching is a concern in Northern Montenegro. Therefore, if you just park on the side of the road, there is a chance that you will find yourself in an unpleasant situation.

For this reason, we strongly recommend that all campers visit the nearby official camping site, EcoOaza. Link: It is just a few kilometers further into the national park on the other side of its main protected area, Crna Poda (Black Pine Forest). A few wild campers are always welcome to set up tents for free in the forest just behind our hotel's visitor parking. We kindly ask these campers to volunteer for at least an hour of work in the Tara Springs Wildlife Park the next morning, which is right adjacent to the tent sites. There is always a need to maintain trails and pick up garbage left by other tourists there.
