Alan Rogers Review

Camping Delta is an easy 800 m. walk or cycle ride from the centre of the lovely lakeside town of Locarno. It has a prime position right by the lake, with bathing direct from the site between 07.00 and 22.00, and is next to the municipal lido and sports field. The site has some moorings on an inlet at one side, with a jetty. It has 240 level touring pitches (50-100 sq.m). They are marked out at the rear but with no other demarcation, giving an informal mix of all kinds of camper. Waterside pitches are premium priced.

Campers have access to the municipally owned beach and lakeside gardens, which are very well maintained and safe for swimmers. The views of the lake and surrounding mountains are both calming and inspiring. Locarno is host to an International Film Festival, with classical and jazz concerts and exhibitions at nearby Anscona. Being a busy family site, some noise may be expected in the beach and shower areas, but outside peak periods the site is very peaceful. Dogs are not accepted.


The single toilet block is some distance from the more expensive pitches. Facilities for disabled visitors (key). Washing machines and dryers. Motorhome services. Large well stocked shop.
