This camping is a real Family Park. It is huge because it covers 30 hectares. There are 400 pitches alone, and you can also rent holiday homes on the campsite from many tour operators. You can even sleep in apartments or in a hotel at this campsite. No wonder that the entertainment facilities at this campground are also versatile and on a large scale.
The campsite has a swimming pool complex for younger and older children, there are cafes, ice cream parlors and a water playground by the pools. Right next to it there is a stage where animations for older and younger children are held throughout the day, and also for adults in the evenings.

If you don't have your own bikes, you can rent them at the campsite. I especially recommend taking the ferry to the farthest town and returning to the campsite by bike.
Belonging to the largest chain of camping Human Company - Altomincio is Family Park, which is one of the safer campsites for small children. In the streets between the holiday houses, cars are completely forbidden, so children can play everywhere, without fear that a car will suddenly come around the corner. There are guarded swimming pools on the campsite, and the water lagoons have a soft, non-slip bottom.
Other attractions include: a rope park hanging over the pools, all-day animations for children conducted by a trained HuTeam team, and in the evenings the same animators conduct a mini disco for children and shows for adults. On the campsite you can rent bikes, smaller bikes for children and bicycle seats for children.

The best campsites in the northern part of Lake Garda
The campsites in the northern part of Lake Garda are small, intimate facilities. There is no room there to create large Family Parks. The terrain in Garda Trentino is very mountainous, and thus it is a paradise for all those who like to spend their holidays actively. In this part of the lake there are over 1,500 km of bicycle trails. They are all perfectly marked.
The best campsites in the Garda Trentino region are not located directly on Lake Garda - quite the opposite. Many of the prettiest places are off the beaten track, high up in the mountains or even on a tiny lake near Garda.
