Camping holidays always have positive aspects, including being surrounded by nature, having direct contact with the lake, and saving money. Especially for those traveling with a camper in a family, it’s useful to know more about the campsites that allow for a weekend or a stay near amusement parks.
Even near Gardaland, the park par excellence, the area offers various campsites on Lake Garda or in the hinterland. We have selected some of them, based on the services and appreciation of those who have visited them, to give you the opportunity to choose your ideal campsite!
