This was a campsite (the only campsite in the vicinity still open at the end of September) directly on lake Como. I find it's always useful to know what campsites are still open after the end of Summer, if you're a keen camper.
Found in the small town of Menaggio, Italy, it is a 5 minute walk to local amenities.
The campsite is right on the lake so it is an ideal location for many reasons. Excellent price for it's location (26 euros for 3 people and 2 tents). A super market was close by (about 2 mins) and all cafes and restaurants also a short walk.
Small shop/bar on site but this wasn't open at the time of year.
It was quite small and it's main selling point (being directly on the lake) was ruined by the stationary caravans that obstruct the lovely views. Quite over crowded by all the caravans and it appears to have limited space for tents however there was ample space for our tents once we were set up. Not much grass it was mainly hard soil. There were no ovens or kitchen type areas which you sometimes find on campsites. Sinks were provided for washing up, although there was no hot water.
The main concern was the wash areas. 2 toilets and 2 showers for women (not sure about the gents). The showers accepted tokens for hot water but they were'nt the cleanest a bit like a shack with old broken doors and no where to change after showering. You had to take everything into the cubicle with you and try not to get it wet. Not the best for privacy.
On the whole, fine for a few days and great for small budgets. Not good if you are concerned about washing facilities and privacy.
