Campsites in Turkey

This was our trip to and through Turkey 2 years ago, though we didn't use many campsites:

Lots of overnighting spots on Peejay's map, and lots more on Magbaz website, and beautifully written-up stuff from Don Madge, including good ferry connections, visas etc.

Also perhaps look at, he cycled round the world, pitching a tiny tent in some of the most unlikely places, his two books on the subject make entertaining and informative reading.

Other cyclists, the late Ian Hibell not least, on Magbaz.

Once again, thanks to everyone for the helpful replies.

Re visas etc, things seem to have got easier in the past couple of years and I'm just starting the process to get the Russian business visa. Turkmenistan is the difficult one but still easier than it was. I have no doubt there will be problems but we'll get there.

Grimaldi Lines run a ferry from Barcelona to Civitavecchia, (near Rome). We then crossed Italy to Bari (320 miles) to get another ferry to Igoumenitsa, Greece.

Then a drive up to the boarder at Ipsala via the newish motorway

Italy was closed in deep winter, but like Turkey, Greece was lovely and relaxed about free-camping.

Best wishes.

Thanks for that. That route certainly avoids most of the snow/ mountains. How was northern Greece at that time of year? I understand that it can be pretty snowy there?
