Lago Maggiore

Italy - Lake Maggiore - Dormelletto

Camping Lago Maggiore

There are many campsites on the shores of Lago Maggiore, but there is only one that can call itself Camping Lago Maggiore. Although this family campsite is not as large as many of the other around the lake, it is definitely one of the most scenic.

Why camping Lago Maggiore ?

  • There's a well maintained grassy sunbathing area beside the lake and some small beaches which are safe for small children. It's ideal for families with young children.
  • Teenagers will enjoy themselves here too as the terrace next to the large pool has a dance floor. It's a great spot for an evening's entertainment.
  • There's a large shopping centre opposite the campsite and there are even more shops in Milan, just 65km from the campsite.
  • Hungry for real Italian pizza? They are simply delicious here. Grab a table in the cosy campsite restauarant or one at the new restaurant at the beach.

Tip from the specialist:

"One of the best campsites at Lake Maggiore. A good choice for families withsmall children ans teenagers, with a sunbathing green and safe beach. Good pool, and entertainment."

The surrounding area of Lago Maggiore

The southern edge of Lake Maggiore is surrounded by several other lakes that were originally glacier lakes during the ice age. This is also where the Ticino river begins its journey to the south. Its borders are a protected nature reserve and there are good walking and cycling paths here.

Some tips for your holiday at Lago Maggiore in Dormelletto

  • Visit Somma Lombardo where pre-historic remains from early Italian history were discovered, close to the 13th century Visconteo castle.
  • The closest city along the lake heading north of Dormelletto is Arona, which is known for its 23m high bronze statue of Saint Carolus Borromeus. You can climb the stairs inside the statue for a great view of the Angera castle on the opposite bank of the lake.
