There are small campsites a plenty, we stayed at several in Greece, Romania, Bulgaria and Czech Republic - all are listed on our reviews.

In Eastern Europe we found plenty of small family run sites - many akin to CL's in UK. All had electric, water and showers.

We found most of ours by doing searches on the net for campsites around our destinations. Our other main source was the campsites themselves - in Bulgaria campsites seemed to work together and happily gave details of other sites.

In Romania, Slovakia and Hungary we came across many sites owned and run by Dutch families - again they network and will help you out with sites in other areas.

My suggestion would be to Google for campsites in places you want to stay - you will find some great small sites with less than 10 pitches. Likewise on here there are some excellent sites all with reviews so you know what you are getting.

Happy travels

Twenty odd years ago(!) we did a trip to meet my son’s pen pal in the Czech republic. Taking it steady, we stopped at Esch-sur-Alzette (Lux); Neckarzimmer and Flossenburg (Ger); Tabor then with the family near Brno. On the way back, Melk and St.Polten (Aus); Füssen (Ger); Colmar, Verdun and Ardres (Fr).
As this was th time before the Euro and Schengen, we crossed eleven borders, and used eight currencies. We got used to filling up just before each border to use up loose currency. Leaving Czechia, where we’d been buying beer for pennies, moving into Austria was a shock, especially not knowing that handing over a large denomination note with a “Danke shön” meant keep the change. We used the Michelin Europe guide as the internet wasn’t really a thing. Everywhere was helpful and friendly, though customs were different.
Hope your kids are as good travellers as you! Have a great trip.

Dot P has said just about everything I was going to say! We have been to all the countries you mention, and have done reviews for all of the camp sites we used.

However, we have a caravan, so our needs might be slightly different to those of tent campers, for example hardstanding or gravel pitches won't be so good for you. In Salzburg, you might prefer Camping Vierthaler to Panorama Stadtblick - it's also cheaper, but to be honest Austria is quite a bit more expensive generally. Lovely for a short visit though. We found sites in Poland were cheap, fairly basic but clean and comfortable. I'm not sure about small sites near Berlin, we stayed at a big one in Potsdam, Sansouci, but I can't remember if we saw any tents there. Berlin is really interesting, there's so much to see and do.

Have a great time!

My OH has just reminded me that there was a tent camping area at Sansouci. Unfortunately you won't be able to use your ACSI card in the school summer holidays until late in August.
