Pitch 144, right on the front with a view to savour. Not cheap in May - £60 per day (CHF 79) and rises to CHF 111 in August...but worth it if the weather is kind. Services top rate. Pitches compact and you can feel crowded if your neighbour has a 12 tonne Morelo. Convenient for cycle track (flat and to Ascona) and there’s a supermarket/ Coop centre about a mile away. Golf is around CHF 120 at Ascona. Visitors with handicaps welcome. Will return.
We found this site on line, called them from Austria, To check if they had space for caravan for the coming week. Advised by reception, No problems plenty of space with hook up & water. " just turn up" I Asked to book it & was told could not as not Company policy. "Just turn up". We arrived on site less than 24 hours later. What a disappointment. The place was full to the top. Reception gave us a choice. Take one pitch for 3 nights and then move to another pitch for 4 nights. So Off we went with site map in hand to take a look. The pitches are far too small. Only around 1.5 meters between units. The access was terrible. ( if you have a mid to large caravan without a mover, forget it). Taken the 1st pitch would mean running EHC over the entrance road & water was no go for hook up. We noticed other people with a site map in hand walking around looking at the same pitch numbers we were. They were told same story. " plenty of space just turn up" Needless to say we did not stay, nor did others we seen. It may have 5 star rating by ticking all the " we have " boxes and the photos may look terrific. But what the point if it's so full and every one is shoe horned in that you can relax. It is a holiday after all. We have stayed on absolute top rated 5* sites in Switzerland, Austria & more. While I do agree the site is nice. It's just not worth the money. What really let it down for us was the fact all they care about is packing you in to make more money. We and others had traveled a long way to get there. Very false.…
We really enjoyed our stay here for 3 nights on our way to Italy. We had pitch 161 on the beach and the view was amazing. First night we had pizza in the campsite restaurant which was tasty and BBQ'd the other nights. Toilet bloc nice and clean, two playparcs and 2 pools as well as the lake. There is a coop supermarket 10 mins walk away and the little shop on site had essentials. The reception printed off tourist cards that gave us free bus travel and 30% off the cable car up the mountain in Locarno - the view from up there was amazing too! We liked it so much we're staying on the way home. Pitch 157 (I think this is the best pitch!). Only downside is it is expensive compared to uk sites - but to be honest for the view and the pool it is worth it!
Despite the warm welcoming, we immediately were disappointed by the close quarters of the campground. All of the lots were practically on top of each other and there was absolutely no privacy. Due to the fact that everybody was so close to one another, it was near impossible for my group to sleep due to other campers who were awake until the early hours of the morning. Although we appreciated the amenities and the cleanliness, it was not worth the $100+ we spent for three people. Since August is peak vacation time, we would not recommend going there due to the large crowds of families. Staff was friendly, but over all it was a poor experience.
Took the teenagers to this campground to kayak, paddle board and swim for the day. This camp ground is incredible and I wish we camped there. The price to kayak or paddle board is 15 Franks a person per hour. We had a great time and would camp there in the future if we were closer.
