    Depends on your requirements, we stayed near to the lake at a very family oriented site, but depends if that is what you are after?

    2 years ago we stayed at "Camping Butterfly" cracking site with all you could want and a short walk into Peshera del Garda where are lots of shops, restaurants ect
    You can also catch the ferries to other places on the lake, we went for 3 days and stayed a week !!

    Another recommendation for Camping Butterfly an ACSI site at Peschiera del Garda.
    Camping Capucine is also very good not, ACSI though

    We went on a site at desenzano del Garda, site was called San Francesco, right on lake side, bar, take away, restaurant, swimming pool. Takes Acsi card

    Depends on your requirements - there's no shortage of them, especially just south of Lazise.

    Up at Torbole there's a MH only site with a limited duration stay that's good for visiting Riva del Garda.

    If you're visiting theme parks we found Camping Amici di Lazise really handy as there are shuttle buses that stop near there, and it's next door to a couple of the parks and a music-themed eat all you can diner. You also have the option of stopping aire style for a reduced fee on their car park but it looked a bit hot to me. It's easier getting a bus to Verona from that part of the lake.

    Lazise has the mother of all markets if you like that sort of thing.

    Thanks andrewjw, always do search but its nice to get recommendations from people who have been.

    Thanks so much everybody I love this site, people are so helpful. We would prefer ACSI, we have paid for some expensive sites along the way, and had some very nice camperstops but its nice to get a bit back here and there. We are just us two so don't need all the family oriented stuff anymore. Butterfly looks good and descenzano. Handy to be able to walk to restaurants\bars\shops. Thanks so much. Be there in a few days so will post where we got to(y)

    Excellent site, about a 20 minute walk to Lazise which is a nice town.

    http://www.laquercia.it/

    You can get pitches right by the lake.

    Spent a couple of weeks last year at Camping Serenella just outside of Bardolino. pitch was virtually on the lake and there is a cycle track outside which gets you into Bardolino or Garda in minutes . very friendly and helpful staff although was a bit busy due to us being there in mid July . There is also an Aire type car park next door that a lot if people were using costing 1Euro per night !!!

    Italy was a test for us in our 11.5 metre RV plus 4 metre trailer, but we did Venice, Rome, Florence, and Lake Garda. Fornella was a great site, we used the back entrance but 9 metre would not be a problem.

    Well, we arrived, didn't book big mistake! No chance of getting on butterfly till Saturday. That site is in a great location on the marina. Called at a couple of others didn't fancy, we are in ACSI site fosalta. Nice enough pool, IMG_20150511_191706.jpg access to lake but a bike ride 2 mile to lazise. Its been hot! Had a bad start there was a bad accident on way here had to reverse back to next slip road and detour round dropped a lot of time. Anyway 3 days then see if we can get something nicer.
    Just caught sunset about 8.15

    We stayed at Camping Serenella, a big ACSI camp midway between Bardolino and Garda. Lovely location - right on the lake. Cycle path access direct from site. Bardolino and Garda lovely, 1km from site in each direction on cycle / walk path. Trips on the lake from Bardolino and Garda.
