Besitzer war unfreundlich. GPS positionen haben beinuns nicht gestummen und uns auf den Fussballplatz aus der anderen Seite vom Fluss navigiert. Kein Brot in der Offsaison resp. nur auf Vorbestellung. Sanitär sauber.

Op zich best een aardige camping. Prima sanitair. In het voorste gedeelte van de camping is er nog wat groen, mar het achterste gedeelte is één open vlakte, met zand. Het restaurant is duur. Er kan leuk gewandeld worden, ook met de hond. De bij komende kosten bij het ACSItarief zijn zo hoog, dat je bijna het dubbele tarief betaalt.

Rustig gelegen camping met vriendelijke ontvangst. Camping ligt in een soort van bos. Je hoort de vogels fluiten (inclusief de koekoek), er is veel schaduw en de koetjes lopen aan de overkant. Maar er is hierdoor ook erg weinig gras en bij regen wordt het snel erg modderig en worden je spullen erg smerig. Sanitair is OK, maar ook niet meer dan dat. Het heeft een beetje het luxeniveau van een sportkleedkamer. Het is schoon, douches zijn ruim. Toiletten zijn voorzien van toiletpapier en zeep om je handen te wassen. Het duurt lang voordat het water in de douches warm is en daarna schommelt de temperatuur nogal van bijna koud tot gloeiendheet. Het grootste minpunt zijn de plaatsen om je te wassen. Dit zijn lange bakken met kranen erboven, nauwelijks ruimte om een toilettas neer te kunnen zetten, handdoek en kleding kun je aan een veel te klein haakje bij de toiletten achter je ophangen in de hoop dat het er niet afvalt. En als je af gaat wassen, was je jezelf ook deels af... Enorme kranen die wel een meter boven de spoelbak zitten, zonder flink spatten afwassen is nagenoeg onmogelijk. Het restaurant op de camping is uitstekend. Gezellig, goed eten met een ruime keus op de kaart en niet te duur. Wifi op de camping is gratis en redelijk goed. Dekking is prima, snelheid in orde voor standaard browsen en af en toe een nieuwsfilmpje kijken. Het dorp Cugnasco ligt op loopafstand, er zijn volop wandelmogelijkheden en de camping ligt aan het fietspad van Locarno naar Bellinzona (beide op ongeveer 11 km afstand). Winkels als een Coop, Lidl en Aldi, liggen allemaal redelijk dichtbij. Omdat ik de camping een nogal modderige bedoening vond met matig sanitair, zou ik de volgende keer een andere camping opzoeken in deze streek.

Branchement électrique peu pratique (norme des prises, distance), place non délimitée, peu de vert, environnement champêtre agréable. Communication en français difficile.

Posivit:
- sehr netter Empfang durch die Chefin
- gute Infos zur Umgebung, möglichen Ausflügen und zum Nahverkehr (Ticket inclulive)
- saubere Sanis auch bei hoher Auslastung
- leckeres Brot und Brötchen auf Bestellung
- Restaurant am Platz ist sehr empfehlenswert

Negativ:
- Anlage wirkt in Teilen etwas ungepflegt, wenig Rasen, Stellplätze uneben, Laternen rosten
-Keativität bei der Preisgestalltung um trotz ACSI noch extra 4,50 CHF pro Person als \"Kurtaxe\" zu kassieren
-der Chef ist eher unfreundlich, grüßt nicht, versperrt dann bei der Abreise mit seinem Pickup die Ausfahrt und wir als Gast müssen mit einem 15m-Gespann ausweichen obwohl er draußen genug Platz gehabt hätte, für uns der Grund nicht wieder dorthin zu fahren.

Voor ons was het een doorreiscamping. Daarvoor was t prima. Het restaurant was vol geboekt, maar konden alles van de kaart krijgen bij onze vouwwagen.
Ik zou deze camping niet aanraden voor een verblijf van een lange periode. Er zijn denk ik mooiere campings in de buurt.

This is a good location close to Lake Maggiore. Some of the pitches are on the small side or our 7m tent. We did a beautiful drive into the mountains as the weather was not great one day. Through Ascona, Santa Maria Maggiore to Domodossola and then down the motorway and back along the Lake (by which time the sun was out). The road goes right along the lakeside and you can stop for lunch at beautiful Cannobio. Go through the town and there is a car park on the right suitable for vans and car with top boxes. Only a short walk from the end of the promenade. The campsite had a good sized pool and good toilet facilities. The restaurant was popular but we did not try it. The owners were German and helpful but a little unfriendly. I did not get a smile out of them. Down the road in the supermarket everything is in Italian. Euros can be used but you will get the change in Swiss Francs. We managed to spend ours on coffees on the motorway. Do not forget to buy your vignette.

A pleasant site with excellent children facilities. There are cycle tracks by the site and pleasant wooded walks. A special plug adapter is required but this can be got from Reception with a returnable deposit.

A revisit to this site for us as a stopover, it is expensive site for us at CHF 28 including the taxes. The site is under new owners from our last visit and they are doing work to the site, there seems to be less trees and better space. Pitches are marked and good size, mainly level. Swiss electrics but you can borrow an adaptor for a deposit at reception. Good wash block facilities, hot showers, large area, toilet paper. Area to walk dog just outside the campsite, very helpful and friendly staff. Swimming pool not open to comment.
