Camping in Poland?I've noticed a few threads on camping in Poland so wondered if anyone could answer this question!
I will be in Poland with two friends for Euro 2012 in June. We have some booked hostel accommodation but plan to spend 4 nights camping (two each in Wroclaw followed by Poznan). We will also have a hire car.
I'm finding it difficult to get any information on campsites in these areas specific to plans for June 2012, and it is virtually impossible to make a booking without speaking perfect Polish. The other option is for us to drive out of town and wild camp each night.
Does anyone have any knowledge or experience on either of these options that can offer me advice or make any suggestions? Your help would be greatly appreciated as three guys don't really wanna spend 4 nights straight sleeping in a car!

1In Wroclaw there's a camping facility just within the entrance gate of the old (Olympic) Stadium. Pretty bad facilities ('rusty') but imo ok for some nights. Many pitches (esteem 250)
Good tram connection to the centre, and I assume to the new stadium. Since Wroclaw will be European cultural capital in 2016 infrastructure will be and has been improved considerably.
The other option is for us to drive out of town and wild camp each night
Or to drive out of town to a campingsite. This will be easier than driving through Wroclaw to the above campingsite!
Just inform at the Tourist Office. They are/were very helpful.
In Poznan: Malta Camping, http://campingmalta.poznan.pl/en/
Not been there!

2Thanks for the hints. Very helpful!
It's good to know that the Tourist Office is helpful. Some are better than others!
Obviously prices will be premium in June and we need to keep track of costs.Although it looks really nice, Malta Camping are quoting me 350 PLN per night. I'm an experienced camper so don't mind sleeping wild and it will be free :-) But we'd rather stay in the city if possible as it will be much easier.
Does anyone have any hints or experience of cheap camping options in either Poznan or Wroclaw?

4Good idea I think Macci, what I sometimes see on the Forum: Ukrainan people are often offering a private place (officially not allowed and classified as spam), I haven't seen that from Poland. Though more often a room or apartment.

I've have looked into CouchSurfing and it seems to be a good option. The main problem is, although I've been aware of it, i've never done it before myself so don't have a rating which i think will make it more difficult to find someone who will want to have three mid-20s men staying with them for a couple of nights. Also, I have no ability to offer a couch either which, understandably, will probably seem quite dodgy when contacting people! Will keep trying, though.
Does anyone think there are any dangers involved in wild camping near-ish the roadside just out of town?
