“Worst campsite I've stayed at”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

The title should say it all. I have camped all over Europe and the UK and this place was the worst.

1. It is overpriced - It cost 31 Euros for one night (2 people, small tent, small car)
2. It is noisy - near a main road, gardeners start about 7am
3. There is little privacy from other tents
4. The toilets and showers are very dated
5. Lake Geneva isn't so good anyway - go to more interesting parts of Switzerland

Overall, I cannot recommend this campsite at all. Avoid

We were 2 adults and a baby, a little 2 persons tent and a car and we paid 39 euros for one night!!!
the camping is supposed to be 4 stars but I wonder how did they get the 4 stars, I went in 2 stars campings that were way better than this one...
the kids area is tiny, the bathroom is old and broken everywhere. Hopefully it is at least clean... but that's the only positive point.
I really regret I didn't drove further to another capming...

This camping site is directly on Lake Geneva so it's location is really decent compared to others nearer Geneva. The site was close to the road and subsequently it was loud in the mornings with trucks/gardeners etc.

The Showers and Toilets were inadequate in certain locations but the showers in the main area were hot and clean.

The store on site was overpriced compared to others that we've stayed on in Switzerland.

One slight disadvantage was that there were a lot of tents close together (see picture). This resulted in a lot of unnecessary noise that you could not avoid.

This is a basic campsite and we used it for only two nights so it was enough for us. I would not recommend this for longer campers.
