The waters of Lake Garda allow its numerous visitors to enjoy a mild climate all year long, and during the summer they are overtaken by water sports fans. It’s also for this reason that many campsites of Lake Garda are open all year long.

Camping Checklist

In order to rest comfortably it’s important to have an inflatable mattress, that protects you from the moisture of the earth at night, as well as the indispensable sleeping bag and waterproof tent, even better if it has a veranda.

If you intend to cook while camping you can purchase a comfortable portable gas stove, that is both practical and safe. It would be ideal if you also brought a foldable table with foldable chairs for maximum comfort.

During the summer having a portable fridge can prove to be of great advantage, as it allows you to always have a cool beverage at hand.
