Camping San Vito

by Guest

Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy and is nestled in the alpine region of the country to the north, making up part of the famous Dolomites. It was created during the last Ice Age by ice melts and has long been a holiday destination for the rich and famous from Italy and the rest of Europe. It is easily accessible from the city and Venice which is around 60 miles east. While it is possible to stay in a hotel or guest house around the lake, one of the best ways to make the most of the area is by camping, of which there are a variety of options.

One of the finest and most established camping grounds is the San Vito Campsite . The nearest town is Bardolino which is located just 2 kilometers down the road and is well worth exploring. The campsite is open between the end of April and mid October, and closes during the winter months.

It's large with more than 1,000 grassy pitches available for tents, campervans, and motorhomes. Guests can decide on whether they want a shady spot and if they want electrical and water hook ups. They are all spacious and measure up between 80 and 100 square metres. The pitches are all close to the lake, with a maximum walk time of around 10 minutes. There is also a route which takes guests to their sister Cisano campsite nearby. There is no charge for bringing your rental car to park up on your pitch, and plenty of space to do so. Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted in the park, nor are camp fires, through the site does rent out gas and coal barbecues which you can cook up your camp dinners.

If you are feeling lazy and don't want to cook your own meals, there is several onsite restaurants offering a variety of Italian and international cuisine, as well as kids meals. These are all available throughout the time the camp is open, and one has a lovely terrace overlooking the lake. For a cold beer or a glass of Italian wine, head to one of the three bars at the campsite. Other amenities include a supermarket which stocks everything you need to cook your own food, and a little shop selling drinks, snacks, and newspapers. Freshly baked bread and pastries are always available for guests.

The lovely little lakeside town of Bardolino is just a few minutes' drive from the campsite. Here, you'll find a number of great restaurants and bars, and a wine museum. It's well worth the short drive to have an amble through the town which overlooks the lake. All in all this is a great option for groups of friends of families, but there are other options including Camping Lido.
