A camping holiday on Lake Garda offers the opportunity to enjoy one of Europe's most beautiful lakes. At the northern end of Lake Garda, Italy's largest lake, you will find the lively town of Riva del Garda, where the surrounding mountains seem to creep right down to the shore. Riva is popular with windsurfers, as there is often a brisk breeze blowing down from the mountains. As you travel southwards down the lake the mountains slowly withdraw, and at the southern end of Lake Garda you are on the great plain of the Po. From here it is easy to visit Verona, less than an hour's drive, or Venice, a couple of hours away.

There is a road along both western and eastern shores of Lake Garda, giving good access to all the campsites, although the road is narrow and twisty in parts. All along the shore are pretty small towns with all the amenities for tourists. Some of the most rewarding to visit are Riva del Garda itself, Limone sul Garda and Gardone Riviera on the western shore, and Malcesine, Garda and Bardolino on the eastern. At the south of the lake is attractive Simione. Frequent ferries ply up and down the lake, offering an alternative and relaxing way of visiting.

There are walking tracks in the hills around the lake, and kayaking, swimming and canoeing are possible on the lake itself. All this, combined with easy access to the historic cities of the plain, makes a camping holiday on Lake Garda a popular option.
