Ruins of old Allied shipping port from WW1.
Right on seashore, far enough from road to be quiet at night. No local dogs barking which is a bonus.

Admin note: Closed for camping. Day visits ok. Note from contributor: We were kicked out by a farmer late evening because there is a major propane plant on the hill just above and while not a problem during the day, it is seen as a risk at night if there was a major leak and you were asleep.
Level grassed spot on banks of pond. Far enough from the highway to be quiet and not too close to the nearest mosque either.
No facilities except clear water. Locals use it for picnicking and fishing.
Quiet overnight spot, but maybe very hectic in the morning if they launch the balloons from this spot. If that happens, then you get to see over a 100 balloons in the air. Best seen from one of the ridges so you have a 360 view
Great views and no dogs and very peaceful once the tourists have retreated to the town.
All facilities available in town about 1km away.
One of several places in Goreme where you can get basic campground facilities.
Small area in carpark right next to formations. Electricity available in laundry or bathroom. Basic unisex showers and toilets.
Right in the middle of town so good for exploring the town, but with attendant problems of dogs barking at random times during the night plus guaranteed wake-up at dawn.
Hotel can arrange for laundry to get done. Hundreds of restaurants nearby.
Pool in the summer season.
Access possible for largish rigs (unimog and similar expedition trucks) but should walk in first to make sure there is room. Room for one or two bigrigs and a couple of smaller units
Price for two people vehicle and electricity 30 Lira per night
Small promontory into the lake. Can get far enough off the road that the traffic is barely audible. No facilities
Shade closer to the road if required. Mountain views south along the lake.
No dogs barking.
Nice spot at the junction of two rivers. Well off the road and river sounds mask traffic on the road above.
Were five dogs turned up but a few well placed rocks and a bit of chasing soon had them running up the valley never to be seen or heard again.
Few friendly locals were picnicking nearby when we arrived.
Quiet all night.
Restaurant, picnic and camping ground located just below the Ishak Pasa palace. Cost is 15TL per night including electricity.
Restaurant on site. Parking on paved carpark.
Quiet at night once the resident dog has been encouraged to bark elsewhere.
Beachside parking that will be busy in peak season. Carpark right next to the sand will be busy with locals drinking and necking and playing loud music so would be better driving on to the large grassed sandy area adjacent. Quiet in off-season, but no guarantees in peak summer..
Nothing fancy, just a very large parking area at the bottom of the road up to the ruins. Shade if wanted and can get well away from the road. Downside is dogs, but they are not too bad. Polyphonic calls to prayer as you would expect so will get an early start to your day..
Beach Camping about 3km west of the Ephesos Ruins. Long beach with hard sand. Quiet when we were there but would be packed during high season. Beach is several km long so could escape the crowds who are all in 2WD cars. Pretty quiet at night. Couple of dogs and fishemen visiting but OK
Large roadside pulloff with great views over Marmaris and the bay. Plenty of spots that are level enough, but might be busy with locals drinking and playing music until late evening and then it is quiet with little traffic.
Mountainside pulloff with nice valley views. Far enough off the road to keep traffic noise reasonable and traffic at night is low anyway. No Dogs, No Calls to Prayer. Level spot with shade from pine trees
Family-run restaurant and camping ground off Hwy 400 adjacent to Anamur Kalesi. Basic facilities and can park right on the beach. Plenty of shade, solar showers, Toilets. Basic facilities. No road noise down on the beach. 15TL for 2 people in motorhome. 25TL includes electricity. Laundry service available.
