Although you might consider Monte Generoso as a transit campsite, it would be a shame not to stay a little longer. Because it is a great base from which to make lots of fun excursions, by foot, by bike, or on the water. The simple but charming family campsite is located right along the banks of Lake Lugano, thereby promising lots of water activities. Here you always have a priceless view.
Monte Generoso is a spacious campsite with a splendid view of Lake Lugano. At the reception desk, Italian, German and English is spoken.
Where is your pitch?
The pitches on the level grounds are spacious, some of which are separated by hedges. Some pitches are fully shaded. You can even rent a caravan. Monte Generoso is located right on the lakeshore, which begins with a (little) strip of pebble beach.
The campsite guests are mainly Swiss, Germans and those travelling from north and west Europe; the latter due to the site's location along the Germany-Italy route. Monte Generoso is therefore also very suitable as a transit campsite. In the summer, families with children come because of the location directly on the water and the water sport activities.
All water recreation is done in the lake itself; there is no swimming pool on the campsite. The water in the lake is crystal clear and lake bed is made of pebbles. You can go right into the lake from the campsite.
Take the cog railway up to the top of Monte Generoso! There is a visitor centre there where activities are held and where you have a view of the Alps and the Po Valley.
