The ancient city of Lausanne spills down the hillside towards Lake Geneva until it meets the peaceful park in which this site is situated. Owned by the city, the managers have enhanced its neat and tidy appearance by planting many flowers and shrubs. Hard access roads separate the site into sections for tents, caravans and motorhomes, with 10A electrical connections in all parts, except the tent areas. Of the 350 pitches, about 96 are for touring units, 100 are for tents and the remainder for seasonal caravans. A few large pitches near the lake are suitable for American style motorhomes.
The lakeside bar/restaurant (also open to the public) provides occasional musical entertainment in season. The playground, games room, bar and restaurant are all close to the lakeside and do not disturb the majority of campers. Although only minutes from the city centre, only a gentle hum of traffic can be heard. A public footpath separates the site from the lakeside, but there is good access. The World HQ of the Olympic movement is adjacent in the pleasant park, which is also available for games and walking.
