Campsite Ewil

General information
Guide price €32.40

Camping Ewil, only 25 km south of Luzern, is situated alongside a crystal clear lake (Sarnersee) between imposing mountains. Ewil is a dream camping site for people who enjoy peace and nature. You can swim in the tranquil lake or laze on one of the private beaches. The camping site does not really cater for families with young children as there are no facilities like a playground and sandpit.

Nice grassy surface

The camping site, a small-scale grounds, is well-cared for and organised. The reception is located on the first floor of the building and is decorated in traditional Swiss style. When you enter the grounds, you will notice that on the side of the lake the camping site is partly laid out in terraces.

You can't fail to miss the beautiful well-maintained grass cover. There are hardly any trees, so don't forget to bring your sun umbrella. The camping pitches differ in size. A few pitches are paved for camper vans. The camping site has a few rental caravans. There are a large number of annual pitches (50) in comparison with the number of tourist pitches (approx. 30).

Everyone in the water!

The Sarnersee is lovely for swimming and you will not feel the lack of a swimming pool. The lake is located directly along the camping site, you only have to cross the railway line. At the lakeshore there are a couple of private beaches (small pebbles) and a lovely lawn.

Eating and drinking

At the reception is a small camping site shop with a limited selection. However, fresh bread is available daily. The modest restaurant has a terrace from where you can enjoy the splendid panorama of the Sarnersee.

Na een vriendelijke en behulpzame ontvangst hebben wij hier 2 zonnige dagen met onze camper direct aan het meer op een verharde camperplaats gestaan. Voor een fotoreportage zie www.schweiz.kremers.be/Video/Sachseln/index.htm

Ganz toller Campingplatz am See. Tolle Infrastruktur besonders der Strand. Die Betreiber machen alles, dass man sich wohl fühlt. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit. We‘ll be back!

We chose this site because of its access to the railway and Lucerne and were not disappointed. A pleasant 15min walk between the track and lake brought us to Ewil station where we bought tickets from the automatic machine (20 chf) for 2 returns to the city. Also nearby are Pilatus and Titlis, both wondeful experiences.
The site owners were very friendly, providing essentials from a small shop and keeping the modern toilet block suoer clean. Would visit again if in the area.

Friendly & picturesque site in beautiful location. Mainly permanent caravans (with chalets) but some touring pitches. We had hard standing pitch overlooking lake & lovely view. Slight incline from lakeside up to the toilet blocks etc.
A railway line runs straight past the site between lake & site but didn’t cause us any nuisance & there were no trains at night. Crossing across railway line to the lake where the site has its own private bathing area. Also gives access to lake side path where you can walk or cycle to the end of the lake or to the small town for shops etc.
Reception & other buildings on site looked quite old & traditional but the shower & toilet facilities inside were modern & very clean. Coin operated showers & hot water (we were given coins for showers as part of ACSI deal). The site has a small shop where bread can be ordered. Euro’s or Swiss Francs accepted. Recycling. Washing machines etc. Chemical disposal point, drain and hosepipe for Motor-homes.

Schöner kleiner Platz, zwar an der Bahn, aber die stört nicht ,da sie nachts nicht fährt. Mit eigenem Zugang zum See. Freundlichkeit und Sauberkeit sehr gut, wie wir es von der Schweiz gewöhnt sind. Luzern, Piletus, alles in Reichweite und Fahrradfahren macht richtig spass.

A wonderful place, just on the lake. The owner, is a wonderfully helpful person. You can choose to be by the lake if you don't mind the trains (the camping is by the tracks, but that's ok really), or higher. The lake is lovely, cool and beautiful. Sanitaries ok and fresh beers! Yay for Ewil!

Petit camping familial au bord du lac, très calme. Les propriétaires sont toujours prêts à rendre service, et parlent le français assez couramment. Sanitaires irréprochables. Région superbe. La voie ferrée qui borde le lac et le camping n'est absolument pas un problème, le train régional passe à 50 km/h et fait très peu de bruit. Magnifiques ballades à vélo dans les alpages

Deze camping bestaat voor het grootste deel uit caravans met daaraan vastgebouwde "huisjes". Vooral als deze bijna allemaal leeg staan (begin mei op een doordeweekse dag) is het er niet erg gezellig. Ook betalen voor warm water bij de afwasbakken. Zeer vriendelijke eigenaren. Vóór onze caravan werd het gras nog even gemaaid toen we ons geïnstalleerd hadden. Prima uitgangspunt voor tochten in de omgeving. (o.a. Luzern, Vierwoudstrekenmeer)

Deze eenvoudige camping ligt bijzonder mooi aan het meer van Sachseln. Via een bewaakte spoorwegovergang kom je op de diverse prive strandjes van de camping. het is er heerlijk zwemmen.
De eigenaars van de camping zijn erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam.
ideale camping om de omgeving te bezoeken.

Bel campeggio al lago (diviso dal lago solo da una linea del treno.. non rumorosa e ben protetta). Splendido panorama sulle montagne e sul lago. Ottimo per andare a correre e per fare il bagno. Acqua potabile gratuita. Molto tranquillo. Non così adatto a famiglie con bambini. Docce e bagni ben puliti.
