The best campsites in the Garda Trentino region

The best campsites in the Garda Trentino region – main image

The region of Garda Trentino is not only Lake Garda ... it is also a multitude of smaller mountain lakes with thousands of kilometers of hiking and biking trails, via ferratas and climbing walls. If you are looking for a place to spend an active holiday in the mountains, Garda Trentino is the right choice.

Before we start the list, we must point out that the Garda Trentino region is a very popular destination for many tourists. If you want to be sure of a place at a particular campsite - we recommend booking in advance, even if you are going out of season. We especially recommend booking if you are going with several families and need several plots.

The best campsites on Lake Garda

In the northern part of Lake Garda, in the region of Garda Trentino, there is silence in the water. It is therefore an ideal place to spend a sailing holiday. Virtually every campsite with access to a lake has a windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing school, as well as equipment rental.

Interestingly, this part of Garda is also forbidden to take part in kitesurfing. In order to be able to kitesurf, you need to take a motorboat (owned by the school / rental) to the rest of the lake and return to the shore in the same way. An interesting solution, because you don't have to worry about swimming to the shore in a specific place.

Al Lago campsite on Lake Garda

Al Lago camp site is located directly on Lake Garda. It has recently undergone a major renovation. New glamping tents have been built on its premises, the streets have been modernized and illuminated.

This campground also has direct lake access. You enter the beach through the gate after entering the code, so no one from the outside will enter the campsite from the lake side. There is a small cafe here, located in an atmospheric old house.

Al Porto campsite on Lake Garda

Al Porto camp site is located directly on Lake Garda in Torbole sul Garda. It is small and cozy. Its pitches are also quite small, but the campsite has a unique atmosphere, beautiful greenery and a nice playground. There is a small pool on it. Sanitary facilities are new and clean. There are also bathrooms for children. There is a laundry room with a drying room and a camper-service.

Campsite Brione on Lake Garda

Campsite Brione is located a few hundred meters from Lake Garda at the foot of Monte Brione. This is a very interesting alternative to crowded campsites near the water. It is a bit off the beaten track, but still very close to the lake and the port. The camp site is spacious, the streets are wide and the pitches are very spacious. In the olive grove above the campsite, there is an area reserved only for tents.

There is also a swimming pool next to the small playground. From this year on, it is no longer necessary to have a camping cap.

Note for motorhomes: there is no camper-service at this campsite. The gray water tank can only be emptied on the lot. Get a drain pipe before coming here.

Zoo Arco campsite on Lake Garda

Zoo campsite is located 7 km from Lake Garda. This camping is often chosen by you if there are no vacant plots directly by the Garda, but in my opinion Arco and this camping are such a valuable place that it is worth planning your next vacation here. A cycle path along the Sarca River leads to Lake Garda. So if you want to see Garda up close, you don't have to move your car, because it will take you less than 30 minutes to get to the lake by bike. The campsite itself is located by the river, but has no direct access to it. There is a brand new swimming pool, paddling pool, two hot tubs and a sauna. A new terrace is being built over the pools. You can see that the campsite is constantly being modernized.

The lots are very spacious. It doesn't feel cramped and there is a lot of shade. Climbing families often choose this place for their holidays, because the area is made for it.

The campsite has been run by the same family for many years and you can feel this family atmosphere at the campsite. There are smiling and helpful people working at the reception desk. At the reception, in the heart of the campsite, there is also a cafe restaurant, playground and boulder wall.

One of the biggest attractions for children here are .. goats running slowly around the campsite. They often come to the fence to feed them with grass and stroke them.

The best campsites on Lake Ledro

As we wrote in the introduction, there are many lakes in the Garda Trentino region. Lake Ledro is one of the larger ones, quite close to Garda. Although the lake is located higher in the mountains than Garda itself, the water is much warmer there.

Al Sole campsite on Lake Ledro

Al Sole camp site is located directly on Lake Ledro. The camping has probably the most amenities compared to others on this lake. Above all, the campsite has a heated swimming pool with slides for children. There is a playground and a playground next to it. Animations are held here in the evening.

New to the campsite in 2022 is a new building with sanitary facilities and a wellness center. It all makes a great impression. You can also rent a place in the refrigerator - a drawer with a key.

The campsite has its own bike rental. There are of course electric bikes. You can also rent a bicycle trailer for a child, which can be attached to an electric bike. There are also electrics for children (24 ”). We took this set for the tour while staying here.

Al Lago campsite on Lake Ledro

Al Lago camp site is located directly on Lake Ledro. It was the first campsite on this lake and has been run by the same family for over 60 years. Older residents may remember that this campground was once on the other side of the bay - closer to the road, but reportedly in the 1960s. It was decided to move it further away from the road to be a little further from the main road. People relaxing by the lake in their bathing suits were then a moral scandal.

We got to know this story thanks to a conversation with a nice heir of the campsite - Steve. You can often meet him at the reception desk. Steve told us that they want the campsite to remain as it is, ie to be mostly tents, caravans and campers. They are also planning to renovate the sanitary facilities in the near future.

There is no swimming pool or animation for children at the camp site. The owners take great care that the campsite is quiet. And thanks to the fact that the campsite was moved further from the main road in the 1960s, it is truly peaceful here. You often ask us about camping for couples or for families with older children - it is definitely a good choice.

The campsite has a great restaurant that you must make reservations for in high season. Read more about this restaurant and others in this region in the article: Where to eat on Lake Garda and Lake Ledro in Garda Trentino

There is a bicycle and water equipment rental. The campsite is directly on the walking and cycling paths.

Best Ledro campsite on Lake Ledro

Camping Best Ledro overlooks Lake Ledro but is separated from the lake by a street. This is a new campsite in this area. Its owner has built something that cannot be found in other places above Ledro, i.e. glamping tents. There are also some brand new houses. There is literally a dozen parcels. It's a small place, but it doesn't lack any amenities. The campsite has, among others professional camper-service and new sanitary facilities.

You can see that it is also a popular place among cyclists. Especially at noon, you can see a lot of active people resting in the shade of the pergola with a glass of water or beer.

The campsite is right on the trail to Madonnina di Best. Make sure to stop at the famous bench on the way.

Camping Lago di Tenno on Lake Tenno

This is the only campsite on Lake Tenno. You need to walk to the lake about 500 m. You can rent kayaks and SUPs on the lake itself. You can relax on the free beach. There is also a small ice cream cafe.

The campsite itself is not big but has nice shaded pitches - just right for hot summer days. The location of the campsite is the perfect starting point for hiking and biking tours. We highly recommend going to the Rifugio San Pietro from here.
