In the absence of a Michelin Road Atlas covering Greece, we bought the Freytag and Berndt large scale fold-out map of the Peloponesse. It's very good, apart from the paper it's printed on. If you go on Amazon to buy it, it would not surprise me if 'the frequently bought with' includes - a super-size roll of Sellotape. Over the summer I meticulously transcribed onto the map information from the Camperstops book, Peejay's useful web-site, Greek Stopovers, and other sundry places gleaned from blogs and web boards. In the case of the most likely looking wild camping stops, I also had a quick 'reccy' on street view to look at access roads. However, preparation is no substitute for experience, so here's some pictures and a brief review of the free places we have stayed in so far, concluding with a cautionary tale at the end!
1. Katakolo N. 37.649479 E. 21.318993
2. Pilos N. 36.915625 E. 21. 695022
3. Agios Nikolaos N. 36.823014 E. 22.283727
4. Neo Itlio, N. 36.69246 E. 22.38969
About 30km south of the previous camperstop. On a promenade above a nice beach in a spectacular bay. We used this as a lunch stop, but it would be a nice peaceful place to spend the night. The road down to Neo Itlio is steep, but not too narrow.
5. Kamares, N. 36. 68203 E. 22.52090
6. Skoutari, N.36.65921 E. 22.49962
This is situtated about four kilometres south of the previous stop. If anything, the setting is even more spectacular than the last one. Access however, is a nightmare for anything larger than a campervan. The roads to it are steep, gravelly, narrow, and approaching from the north made even more hazardous by un-pruned olive tree branches spreading into the already narrow road. The parking area itself is a small patch of sloping concrete near the beach.While extricating myself from the dead end I clipped a boulder and cracked a rear light housing. I would not recommend this place at all.
There are some great places to wild camp here, it's just some of them are down tracks more suitable for a moped,and it's really tricky to know how you tell in advance if the road is going to be OK. Most of the camperstops in ports or marinas seem straightforward. It's always tempting to search out that remote beach where you can sleep under the stars, but you take a risk, one overhanging olive branch can do a lot of damage. After my brush with the boulder, maybe I'll be a bit more risk averse in future.
