Alan Rogers Review

Camping Morteratsch, under new enthusiastic ownership, is a well-equipped mountain site in stunning scenery near St. Moritz. Close to Pontresina, it lies next to the road leading to the Bernina Pass and Tirano in Italy, and nestles in the valley floor between fir-clad mountains. There are about 250 pitches for touring units and tents in summer, about half with electricity. Some are in small clearings amongst tall trees and some in a larger open space. They are neither numbered nor marked, and their size is dictated by the natural space between the trees.

Being in a mountain valley, the grass is thin over a stony base with tarmac roads running through. Four small streams run through this long, narrow site with lovely views on each side. A new reception building houses a comprehensively stocked shop, bistro, TV lounge with kitchen, enormous drying room and an Internet cabin and WiFi. Next to reception is a new, state-of-the-art sanitary building and a new sauna. This is a quiet site in a peaceful location and could make a useful night stop when travelling through or a base for exploring the region which is good walking country. A cycle route runs through the site.
