Die Sanitäranlagen lassen zu wünschen übrig. Dusche ohne Abtrennung, zu eng
Für eine Nacht ok, aber für längeren Aufenthalt nicht unser Platz. Zudem recht teuer. Sehr laut durch die Züge!

Lovely location right next to Lake Lugano – ask for a pitch on the lakeside. Friendly and helpful English speaking reception team. Clean and tidy loos and showers. Well stocked shop and bar together with bistro restaurant. Pitches not marked out specifically so can be tricky keeping space around you; they’re also on a slope (leading down to the lake) so lots of levelling required. Reliable electrics. Large static home contingent on site tend to party into the night so a bit noisy.
Easy access location, though not well signed and not far off motorway (4kms parallel journey). Recommended, tough it\'s not cheap.

Kleine camping , staanplaats wel ruim met uitzicht over het meer.Hoorde van andere NL'ers die er al enkele jaren komen dat er een nieuwe eigenaar zit die zich minder met entertainment bezig houd als dit word verbeterd is de camping goed nu moesten onze dochters van 16 zich zelf vermaken met tafeltennis en zwemmen in het meer.
De prijs is veel te hoog voor wat je krijgt ( staanplaats + stroom omgerekend 75 euro p/n ) douchen gebeurd met muntjes in te kleine douches , deze worden wel schoongehouden evenals het sanitair ( verouderd )
Omgeving is mooi , boodschappen moet je niet doen in Zwitserland maar 15 min . rijden naar Porto Seresio in Italie alles en meer voor NL prijzen en ruimere keus.
Op deze camping zijn we per ongeluk gekomen nadat onze eigelijke bestemming in Albenga echt heel erg tegen viel Italie .
Camping is oke als je van rust houd , er rijdt wel een trein langs op 300 mtr maar je na 2x let je daar niet meer op.

Der Camping ist sehr schön am See gelegen und ist sehr sonnig! Leider ist die Autobahn und Eisenbahnlinie relativ nahe und gut hörbar.
Der Platz ist sehr sauber, aufgeräumt und das Personal sehr freundlich. Man blieb extra länger anwesend am Abend, da wir doch sehr spät angereist sind (ca. 21.30 Uhr).
Für Kurzurlaub oder Wassersportfreunde absolut empfehlenswert.

Kleine camping met zeer veel overlast van trein- en autoverkeer. De sanitaire voorzieningen zijn niet meer van deze tijd. Douchecabines zo klein dat je er claustrofobisch van wordt, kitranden zien er zwart schimmelig uit. Je doet je uiterste best om de randen van de cabine tijdens douchen en afdrogen niet te raken. Brrrr! Volgens mij vergeet je alle minpunten alleen als je een ruime plek, meteen aan het meer hebt. Op die manier zit je met je rug naar de camping gekeerd en geniet je volop van het uitzicht op het mooie meer van Lugano. Prijs/kwaliteit verhouding is niet in overeenstemming. Deze camping is geen aanrader! Wij komen hier in ieder geval niet weer!

This is a relatively small campsite on the lakeshore. The shore is full of small stones so it is recommended to use sandals for swimming. In June the water was far too cold for swimming. The location is not bad but the noise from the railway line and the motorway is quite disturbing during the night. We can not say this is a quiet place.
