The location is brilliant. We are greeted by some stray looking dogs and two guys with no word of english, but friendly. They charge quite something for a place with hardly any infrastructure. The showers, toilets etc. were in poor condition. the whole place looks like it once had beed a first class campground, but lacks maintenance and attention for quite some time. The two guys were later joined by a couple. All were very friendly and even gave us some fruit. With some attention and refurbishment it would be easy to again turn it into a first class site.
We stayed two night there while we visited the city. The manager drove us to a restaurant and picked us up (we were going to take a taxi) We were given a directions on how to get to Istanbul by bus and metro, we managed to get there and back with the directions, without these we would have been lost
Clean location with grass space for campers about 80 kilometers from Istambul. Campsite owner is nice and helping and there's a lockable gate so you feel safe if it's your first trip to Turkey as it was for us. In April 2014 we paid €20 per night for a family and car with a carvan. There's no WiFi but there's a Heliport! :-) You can use washmachine for about €3 if I remember well.
We found it friendly and clean which are the most important issues. We stayed in mid Sept when there were just two other units so it was nice and quiet. By the standards of (say) Austria it would rate only fair but it is pretty good by the standards of the region. Don't expect sophisticated facilities or wi-fi. However, if your car or motorhome can fly they do have a helipad. I am not sure if this is a joke or delusions of grandeur. On a more practical note the proprietors suggest that you can get to Istanbul by public transport. This may indeed be possible but the hours that it takes is far too long to allow the site to be used as a base for daily sightseeing. Better to leave your unit here and book a few days in an Istanbul hotel.
We stayed here in winter & it was freezing - we were the only guests. Management went out of their way to make us feel welcome - would love to come again in summer. Location is quite far outside Istanbul, not convenient for popping in to town, but it's the closest campsite to town and on a longer trip would be fine. Even in the freezing cold there was LOADS of hot water in the shower blocks - what a delight when we were freezing.
Mocamp, 45 min from istanbul. Perfect for visiting the centre of the city and to have a loevely rest in between. situated near selimpasa, a lovely and welcoming little village by the sea of marmara. The staffs at the camp were absolutely lovely and welcoming, despite the language barriers. My children loved it and enjoyed the small pool and the hamoc. They played with the littel girl from the camp and were invited in and welcomed by all the staffs. Pity that no coffee facilities were not present. other than that- brilliant Mocamp and thanks again to all the staffs that made us feel welcome. Would recomend this campsite if you wished to visit istanbul,Erdine and the the rest ofthe peninsula.
