I was there last year,excellent site with good facilities and only a 9 minute walk to the beach,yes I timed it.And it is a shorter walk to our favourite restaurant at Porto Torchio,I doubt if you will get the cheap ACSI rate at that time of year but cannot confirm as our friends are away with our book just now to Italy. Would be good for a canoe there as there are a few islands to visit,Garda reminds me of Loch Lomond as it is a similar shape,we spent a few years on the water there a long time ago.

That's a shame, 9 minutes is quite a long time when you're carrying a heavy kayak lol so we'll have to find a campsite on the lake. Good to know about the islands though, sounds great

Baia Verde

Baia Verde was a favourite of mine, but last time we went, we checked in and checked out - it was over packed!

Perhaps you should not book anything Shell, just turn up, if you like it, stay, if not, move on.

Ideal Piave gets me vote, as does Camping il Faro.

I think we've decided that we will just book say 3 nights, at least then we won't be stuck if everywhere is fully booked but also we won't have to suffer long if we hate it lol

Zocco

Zocco has some large pitches, but not that many and also not the easiest pitches to move a van onto due to trees growing at angles etc! We went, but did not stay.

Stay clear of Camping San Francesco No 2551 it's a dump,the ACSI pitches are rubbish.As I said before and Russell agrees Ideal Pieve would be ideal for you.
