The Campsite Occupancy Survey was implemented in January 1999 to replace the former Movement of Travellers in Campsites Survey. It provides information on the supply and demand for accommodation services.
The analysis units are all campsite establishments registered as such in the corresponding tourist office register of each Autonomous Community.
Tourist campsite, is understood to be that landspace which is duly limited, provided and conditioned, to habitually provide people - via the payment of a stipulated price - with a place to live outdoors for a limited period of time for holidays/tourism using mobile homes, caravans, tents or other similar easily transportable elements as a residence.
Tourist campsites are classified according to their facilities and services under the four following categories: luxury, first class, second class and third class.
