The campsite as all, very much a formal campsite , rule dominated

As they could be

Because they are full and scarcely a bit between them

And to be fair in holiday mode

Not quite hidi hi

But close

And we just wanted to walk in peace along the lake

But to be fair many smiled at the hound from hell as he swam, shook and soaked us

Everyone flocks to Garda Sandra. It is stunning but its like the Windermere of the Italian lakes, everybody goes there. Most will be busy of course mid summer but there are plenty of others to choose from and some smaller less well known ones further up into the mountains like Barcis. We had a ride round some of Garda in 2012 on the bike and it was heaving (August). Not much fun. The Sostas were expensive and rammed, I dread to think what life on a campsite would be like.
