Why stay here ...
Quiet, tranquil and within walking distance of the beautiful village Sorico, La Riva is a picturesque campsite surrounded by towering mountains. Its location on the northern tip of Lake Como makes it ideal for exploring the alpine countryside and a peaceful break.
La Riva is excellently maintained, offering grassy pitches of a good size and shaded during the hottest part of the day. The owners work hard to preserve the site’s peaceful atmosphere, so entertainment is limited.
This campsite is perfect if you enjoy being outdoors. There’s plenty to see and do around the lake with top attractions including ornate houses, museums and the grand Como Cathedral. With Milan just over an hour’s drive away, you're also within easy reach of the fashion capital of the world.

27 miles from Sondrio. From Lecco take the S36 towards Colico and Sondrio, at the end of the tunnels continue on the S36 towards Chiavenna cross the bridge, then turn left on to the S340 towards Sorico (signposted Como and Menaggio) After crossing the bridge turn left after 0.5 miles/0.8km into Via Poncione, continue past Camping Poncione to La Riva. The route west of the lake is very narrow with overhanging rocks –and requires care. Very large or wide outfits would be better to avoid this route.

Arrived via the west side of the lake (no issues with a 7.4 metre caravan), although the road can be a little narrow in places. The site was easy to find, just off the main road. We arrived in July and the campsite is very full then with pitches very close together. At times driving around the site is tricky with not much room to manoeuvre (a couple of people had to move their cars when we passed through with the caravan on tow). The site is very pleasant with absolutely stunning views of the mountains surrounding it. The facilities are clean & well cared for, with a lovely pool if you fancy taking a dip. The pitches all have water for each caravan, but no drainage so you’ll need to use your waste tank. Electricity is a little tight at 6 amps, so we used gas for the fridge & hot water, even then it still tripped out occasionally. Easy access to the village of Sorico via the lakeside footpath. Further afield there is much to explore around the lake with Menaggio, Bellagio & Varenna being particularly picturesque. Ferries across the lake are frequent in the main areas. All in all a great campsite that I don’t hesitate in recommending.
