 Here is the list of our camping/parking sites in Poland during our camper adventure in the summer of 2016.  It was difficult to find a spacious, safe and free parking areas in the country. We had to park one time in a camping, and the rest of the times, in paid  small parking areas.

It is a nice camping with new sanitary facilities. Toilets and shower areas are spacious. There is also facility for laundry. WIFI is available, but the signal is weak!
