Gradina Campsite – Lipovo Village – Montenegro

The Gradina Riverside Campsite Lipovo Village offers a refreshing place to camp, splash around, go hiking, enjoy organic national foods, and make new friends.

Location matters and especially in camping. For an ideal camping location and experience, we offer the Gradina Campsite Lipovo Village. While centrally located in a village known for its beauty which allows access to an array of village life, the campground lies down by a riverbank providing seclusion from the rest of the village. The riverside camping reality offers a refreshing place to splash in as well as keep your beverages cold–summer water temps range from 4 to 6 degrees Celsius. Also, sunbathing is possible on the riverbank.

On and next to the campground are gardens and the Dragović family farmland. Their organic produce, meat, and dairy go into making the amazing national foods of the region. Two specialties from this region include potatoes (brought in by King Peter I) and a special mild, white cheese known as Kolašin Cheese. The Dragović family offers organic national meals that are super hearty though easy on the budget.

This is a worthwhile place to spend a day while in transit, but you are able to enjoy the full experience more with a multi-day or week-long stay. During your extended stay, you will experience the amazing Montenegrin village hospitality and enjoy getting to know Janko, Lilija, and their kids. They love hosting campers and showing them their village and country.

Hiking on Sinjajevina Mountain is superb as well as mountain biking here, on Bjelasica, and even Durmitor. The road through Lipovo leads toward Zabljak and the Durmitor National Park.

  1. 1 unforgettable day with Dragović family

    Revitalizing and mind-blowing trip! I came to Montenegro from buzzing Moscow. I was eager for recharging my batteries, switching from the daily routine, obtaining new experiences, and escaping “big city life”. Given limited time, I planned to navigate down the coastline which, I assumed, provided the best opportunities to achieve my vacation goals. I’m forever grateful to my beloved friends who referred me to Lilija and crashed my stereotypes on perfect rest.

    Traveling by car from Podgorica to Lipovo, I virtually felt that I was in a museum under the sky: enchanting mountains, incredibly beautiful river canyon, old monasteries built seemingly in the middle of nowhere and drowning in the clouds, stunning views … my fingers got tired from constantly shooting pictures.

    Lipovo met us with crisp air, the scent of blossoming apples and cherries, the calm serenity of nature occasionally disturbed by clucking, lowing, meowing, bleating, and barking residents of this paradise. Our first “receptionists” were 4 differently colored cats glued to one another and meeting us at the porch (My welcome has never been that warm and tender! :)). Lilijana met me as though I was one of her close relatives with homemade cherry juice; milk; plum-, apple-, quince-rakija (if you wish); and a delicious NETTLE pie. A resident of a megapolis, I forgot how good organic products taste and how good they make you feel!

    My experience continued with making my lunch with fresh aromatic bread baked by Lilijana, homemade cheese and prosciutto to sustain us during our hiking adventures. Lilijana showed me the mountains that I have rarely seen before: graceful, wild, multi-colored, isolated, but amazingly beautiful. At Lipovo, you have each and every chance to feel like a genuine explorer, testing your physical and emotional limits. You can take the ordinary gravel path or take risks to conquer untouched forrests to reach a wonderful place where the bustling mountain river begins from the lake hidden in the mountain cave. If you still have energy by then, Lilijana is always open for climbing to the top of “this and that” mountain which your restless mind might suggest for the sake of your full enjoyment of Lipovo that she deeply appreciates. Lipovo made me overcome my severe fear of height because I simply could not resist seeing all the beauty of this fantastic place with my own eyes, being only possible by risking, relying on Lilijana’s helping hand at times, and trusting her choice of the perfect observation spot.

    My day ended with feeding two cute cows, drinking tea which we made from marjoram picked in the mountains, and tasting honey made by bees from pollen of the mountain meadows, endlessly inquiring of Lilijana of local traditions, lifestyles, and recipes of the dishes that we tried. I left Lipovo with a baggage of unique experiences, energy, inspiration, and love of sincerity, openness, hospitality, and generosity of the Dragović family members. Definitely, it was not a final farewell, it was just a good-bye …
