Campsite Lago Maggiore Village, Piemonte
There are many campsites on the shores of Lago Maggiore, but there is only one that can call itself Camping Lago Maggiore. Although this family campsite is not as large as many of the other around the lake, it is definitely one of the most scenic. It has a well-maintained grassy sun bathing area beside the lake and some small beaches which are safe for small children. It's ideal for young families and there's plenty to do for teenagers. Next to the large pool is a terrace with a dance floor, where fun-filled evenings take place. There's a large shopping centre opposite the campsite and there's even more shops in Milan, just 65km from the campsite.
The southern edge of Lake Maggiore is surrounded by several other lakes that were orginally glacier lakes created in the ice age. This is also where the Ticino river begins its journey to the south. Its borders are a protected nature reserve and there are excellent walking and cycling paths here. Visit Somma Lombardo where pre-historic remains from early Italian history were discovered close the the 13th century Visconteo castle. The closest city along the lake north of Dormelletto is Arona, which is know for its huge bronze statue of Saint Carolus Borromeus that is 23m high. You can climb the stairs inside the statue for a great view of Angera castle on the opposite bank of the lake.
