Lakeside camping

There’s something extra peaceful and relaxing about holidaying near to water - and that’s why we’ve put together this selection of lakeside camping sites.

As well as the charm of lazing around beside a lake, camping at these sites offers great opportunities for water sports, swimming or just playing on the beach – check individual campsite pages for details.

These sites are ideal if you’re looking for beautiful scenery and a good fishing spot, a relaxing short break, or just a change from a traditional beach holiday.

Canvas has lakeside camping sites in Paris and Île de France, in the Jura region, in the Italian Lakes and in Switzerland. We also have sites very close to lakes in South West France and in the French Alps.

Check out these fantastic lakeside camping sites:

  • Camping Eden, Lake Garda (Italy) Private lakeside beach and jetty, perfect for swimming in the clear water or enjoy windsurfing or canoeing. Mnay emplacements have uninterrupted views of the lake.
