The site is quite convenient but in true Swiss tradition the site is overpriced and the showers with barely enough room to turn around. The staff are friendly enough but room is confined. Seasonal caravanners obscure any view of the lake.

Der Campingplatz ist über eine schmale Stichstraße zu erreichen, die unter der Eisenbahnbrücke (max. 3,40 m Durchfahrtshöhe) hindurch führt.
CP liegt direkt am Luganer See. Auf den Uferplätzen hat man von morgens bis abends Sonne. Zum Baden im See muss man über Kies und Steine.
Leider ist die Autobahn und die Eisenbahn deutlich hörbar. Für die Stromversorgung am Platz und im Sanitärbereich ist ein Adapter (Schweiz/Italien -flach!!!-) erforderlich.
Das Sanitärgebäude ist Standard, dafür sauber. Warmes Wasser fürs Duschen und Abwaschen ist vorhanden.
Fazit: Tolle Lage, aber viel zu teuer.

Travelling party *: Family with children, various ages


A family of 4, with two kids aged 8 and 11
We spent 10 days of our summar holiday here, mainly used it as a base for getting to know the area.Great campsite, always clean, staff very friendly. Kids loved swimming in the lake and also chasing the ducks. They loved the playground too, which kept them away from the lake a bit. The only thing we missed is a bit more choice in the little shop regarding food. Haven\'t tried the restaurant so no experience on that but it seemed to be busy. We loved it, would return anytime. Great facilities, washing machines and drier. Oh and also a table tennis!!! One of our best holiday so far.

Op de terugweg uit Italië hier overnacht. Prima camping, we kwamen laat aan (21.30 uur), maar de slagboom ging open voor ons. We konden met euro's betalen. De camping is niet goedkoop, maar dat is er geen een in Zwitserland. Wel geluidsoverlast van de snelweg, maar voor één nachtje prima. Het uitzicht vergoedt veel.

Wir fahren diesen Camping seit einigen Jahren auf der Durchreise nach Italien an. Die Lage ist zwar schön, aber die Bahn und Autobahn sind nachts nur mit Ohrstöpsel zu ertragen. Ausserdem stört uns der Aufpreis für Kurtaxe etc. Haben mit ACSI immer €21,-- zahlen müssen.

Achter de camping ligt direct de autobahn en het spoor. Dag en nacht, 24 uur, is er continu verkeer op de autobahn, dus 24 uur heel veel geluid overlast. Mijn vrouw heeft met oordoppen geslapen.
Tevens rekende de eigenaar boven op de € 15,00 .... 7,60 administratie cq belasting. Dit is een verkapte prijsverhoging.
Het is ons een raadsel dat deze camping in de ACSI gids is opgenomen. De hoge waardering van de ACSI gids wordt door deze camping zwaar aangetast. Zelfs als doorgang camping niet geschikt.

Deze camping hoort niet in het ACSI boekje. Het hoogste CCA-tarief per overnachting plus tax.
wij moesten voor een overnachting teveel betalen!
Naar deze camping gaan wij dus niet meer.
Dit is bij nader inzien niet eerlijk zaken doen.
