WallyBantersJunkBox - this is the area we are planning on going this summer! We are looking for a basic campsite really - running water and toilets are enough We mostly like peace and space and mountains, happy to travel to reach lake. Do you know of any campsites in that area that are just plan simple and lovely! Thanks
I live about 1.5 hours from Lake Titisee. And yes it's a good snigger to tell everyone where you are staying!
It's a really nice sized lake, and they rent out cheap little boats and pedaloes with slides etc. Not too crowded and some nice hotels around the lake to get your Schnitzel and Gateaux. There is also a little ferry boat that can take you to the camp site/town/hotels etc.
We went for a day, but decided to go for a short weekend and camp. There are two sites that were both quite quiet and lakeside.
We never got to the black forest . And I know what you mean about sites not being up to French standards. It's tricky because a lot of German sites have mostly permanent pitches and only a few for touring which makes the atmosphere less friendly somehow. You could try the cool camping europe book but then they are unlikely to have a pool. The washblocks are guaranteed to be spotless wherever you stay though.
I am looking for sites in the Black Forest as I have wonderful memories of holidays there when I was little. I think I've been spoiled by some French sites as my wishlist is: not overcrowded pitches good swimming pool with slides to entertain children indoor pool of weather isn't too great good childrens playground lake or river for beach (!!!!!) snack bar or restaurant on site.
There's got to be someone out of all you lovely campers that can recommend a site or at least an area? Pleeeease?!
