I would offer one piece of advise to people looking for skmewhere to camp -DON'T stay here. They are clearly some kind of rip off agents, we arrived thinking we had paid just over 100francs for our stay at Delta Camping only to be told if we wanted our pitch we had to pay another 82francs as a booking fee. We could of stayed in a nice hotel for the same price. They then stated that we would we not be allowed any refund.
My partner and I are not silly and if the charges were made clear at the start we would of booked somewhere else as there are plenty of reasonable priced campsites in the area.
Although the cost was extortionate it is not really this thay bothers me the most it is thay this was not made clear in any correspondance with the site. Therefore take this as a warning and get a full quote before booking.
