Camping in the heart of Croatia
Privacy, camp fire and starry nights included!
You can just sit in your chair & enjoy the sound of nature,
you can read books from our library,
if you're lucky we'll host an interesting workshop,
you can jump the trampoline or hang upside down from the climb-structure, or...
If you like to hike, you'll love our surroundings. Bogata Suma is situated in a hilly area with a forest that stretches all the way to Zagreb in the north, to Bosnia in the east and to the coastal area in the south. In the valleys you will find small self reliant farms with lovely people that might serve you sljivovic (their home made rakia from plums).
Our region is developing more bicycle trails. There are several routes to follow. The trails stretch all the way to Petrova Gora (17km from here), where you can find an impressive "forgotten" monument from the communist period.

If you want to go swimming, we can recommend the river Korana. A beautifull and very clean river with a nice temperature. The little waterfall provides you with a free massage! :-)

Micro-workshops in summer
In the more busy periods on our camp, we host microworkshops for our guests. Almost all have to do with the great produce of our land, like: how to pick and mix your own herbal tea, how to turn a cabbage into sauerkraut and cook the Croatian dish "sarma" with it, how to smoke meat, how to make a fantastic handcream...
Communist monument (spomenik)
17km from Bogata Suma, on top of mount Petrova Gora, you can find a mysterious, isolated and crumbling "spomenik"; a monumental relic from communism.
During the 1960s and 70s, thousands of monuments commemorating the Second World War called 'Spomeniks' were built by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito throughout the former Yugoslavia.
It are beautiful monumental sculptures, with an angular geometry echoing the shapes of flowers, crystals, and macro-views of viruses or DNA. In the 1980s the Spomeniks still attracted millions of visitors from the Eastern bloc; today they are largely neglected and unknown, their symbolism lost and unwanted.
Plitvice lakes & waterfalls
Plitvice Lakes National Park (Croatian: Nacionalni park Plitvicka jezera) is the oldest national park in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia. The national park is situated in the mountainous karst area of central Croatia, at the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is about 75km/an hour drive from our campsite.

The green, star shaped historic center of Karlovac is just 25 kilometers away. To Zagreb is about 75 kilometers; a little more than an hour by car. Rijeka is about 1,5 hour.
Croatia offers 1778 kilometers (1103 miles) of seaside and over 1250 islands to choose from (66 inhabited).
The many small beaches of Senj are the closest; approximately 1,5 hours drive.
Bosnia and Hercegovina
If you want to experience a completely different culture: visit Velika Kladusa in Bosnia. This big town in the north-west of Bosnia is only 25 kilometers from Vojnic. It has a castle and on Saturday's the market is the biggest.
