Is there a way to identify a bucolic camping when you are on the road and you don't manage to reach you final destination in one day. I usually have camping gear with me, but when I need to spent the night due to some delay in the trip, I always find that search quite challenging.

I usually end up in an over expensive road hotel or some dodgy camping with quite uncomfortable tent places (e.g. rocks, roots, etc).

Sometimes I end up in a very idyllic spot. It would be so awesome if there exists a standardised way to find these bucolic campings when one needs one nearby.

    Would the camping site still be bucolic if there was a standard way to find one and you had to share it with 50 others using the same standard strategy to look for a camp site? Btw, wild camping is illegal in most EU countries. In some countries, violations are even likely to cause you a noticeable fine. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Apr 15 '14 at 20:49

    In case other people were wondering the same thing, 'bucolic' isn't some kind of disease, but rather the complete opposite - 'relating to the pleasant aspects of the countryside and country life; idyllic'. – Sam Apr 15 '14 at 22:04

    @Tor-EinarJarnbjo I don't think so, campsite owners are not aiming for as few visitors as possible. At the same time I have the impression most people prefer a 4 star camp site with all sorts of luxury. – user141 Apr 16 '14 at 8:39

The ACSI Eurocampings site has a pretty comprehensive search engine and an app to find campsites.

If you can read Dutch, you can use the website Rustiek kamperen, or buy some of their books to bring along. You might have to make quite a detour to pass by one of the campgrounds listed in them, though.
