"We travelled here in the last 2 weeks of June.…"
We travelled here in the last 2 weeks of June. This was an enormous campsite. My 2 daughters ages 7 and 5 absolutely loved it, and for a holiday for the children it is ideal. On the plus side, the pools were great, the children's entertainment each eve was very popular, and the on site ice cream parlour was ideal. On the negative side, the crush/fight to get a sun lounger every morning at 9am proved really stressful. You also have virtually no privacy in the mobile homes, as they are so close together. Early nights were also out of the question as the evening entertainment lasted until 11pm, and could be heard clearly and loudly in our mobile home. Would go back, but would try and get one of the bungalows, which looked nice and were further away from centre of site. Gardaland was fantastic - better than many English them parks.Read moreLess

"Good large campsite with excellent facilities, but it gets extremely…"
Good large campsite with excellent facilities, but it gets extremely busy in high season. Mobile home emplacements are small and tightly packed in most cases so you could practically shake hands with your neighbours thorough your kitchen window.
The food in the restaurants is quite good (service can be slow), the takeaway is also good but gets very busy in the evenings.
The pools are shallow but quite cold and very packed. The slides are only suitable for little kids but there are no restrictions on inflatables. The lake is lovely for swimming and there are pedaloes to hire.
There is a large bouncy castle play area and another play area with go-karts and trampolines for younger children, both of which are open in the evenings but there is a charge for them.
The very best thing about the campsite though is the location. There is a multitude of things to do nearby and the area is stunningly beautiful. Gardaland themepark is a great day out, as is the Parco Natura Viva safari park in Pastrengo. There is also a water park, a movie studios themepark and medieval dinner show nearby. We visited many of the beautiful towns around the lake and went up a mountain in a cable car at Malcesine. We also went to Verona (by car, and highly recommended) and Venice (by train). We visited a nice small themepark outside Milan (Mini-Italia I think) too on our last day as our flight was not until the evening.
I would recommend this site but perhaps avoid high season if possible.Read moreLess
"This is an excellent camp site, with all types of…"
This is an excellent camp site, with all types of accommodation (tents/mobile homes/villas/pitches for tents/caravans). It has 5 outdoor swimming pools (none of them heated!), 3 restaurants, a supermarket; basically all the facilities you would hope for.
The campsite is on the shores of Lake Garda, about 15 minutes walk along the lake shore from Peschiera, which is one of the many lovely little towns around the lake. There's loads to do in the area; Gardaland, Italy's biggest theme park is ten minutes away by car to name but one.
We went to Venice for the day on a train (the nearest station is in Peschiera - it's about 2 hours and no change is necessary). Basically we had a fab time.Read moreLess
