A stunning setting in some of the most spectacular scenery in Switzerland. The campsite pitches give a unique view of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The center of Interlaken is 1.5km from the campsite. An immaculate site with plenty of local attractions and discounts available; with your visitor’s card make use of free transport in the Interlaken area

The friendly, English-speaking staff keep the site and its facilities very clean, and are happy to advise on local attractions and excursions. Guests receive a pass to use the local bus service for free, which makes getting about easy.

The area is a paradise for walkers and cyclists, with cable cars to take visitors to the higher passes. Nearby Lake Thun is an ideal spot to kayak, windsurf or bathe, and cruises are available for sightseers.

EXTENSIVE Damage caused by their mower

After visiting this site for the last 21 years only missing two years BUT VISITING IT TWICE A YEAR FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS we visited in 2019 with our new motorhome. After staying on the site in July and August for 3 weeks we left to go to a site in Luxembourg. That is where we noticed EXTENSIVE damage to the rear and offside of our new motorhome. There was also a trace of green and yellow paint about 600mm long transferred onto a side panel. This is when the penny dropped it must have been caused by the John Deere lawn mower at Lazy Rancho. The driver Daniel was always driving it fast and close to outfits. We had not been anywhere else that had a lawn mower on site since leaving Lazy Rancho. I contacted the owners directly who asked for pictures and dimensions of damage for them to contact their insurance company. Sent by return email. After returning home I forwarded the damage estimate of £2500.00. They immediately refused to discuss the damage any further and said no further correspondence would be entered into. They even sent me a picture of their lawn mower claiming it was black. The bull bar was black but John Deere lawn mowers are green and yellow as was theirs. WARNING AND WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT: CHECK FOR DAMAGE BEFORE LEAVING THE SITE. They were happy for my monies for 21 years but dropped me like a hot potato when I had a claim against them. They have visited our home and we have had meals out with them and in their home.

A great location

We stayed here for 12 nights in september. As per other reviews the site is spotless with excellent shower toilet facilites. We were caravanners. the pitches appeared to be a decent size and stephan pitches you perfectly. Site owners very helpful. Switzerland is very expensive so do take as many provisions as possible. The site is in a perfect location for you to enjoy the mountain region. We bought a 8 day jungfrau region pass which you buy at the local train station . They start from a 3 day pass -8 day pass. The trains leave interlaken to go into the mountains and you can walk, catch a bus or cycle to the train station so we feel this is the best placed campsite in the region. From the site you view the north face of the Eiger and other mountains, beautiful sight! We can highly recommend this site and its easy to get to just off the main road.

A highly recommended 5 star site in beautiful location

This site is only a short distance from the A8 along good roads. For the last few hundred yards the road is narrow, but visibility is good and most of the traffic is from the two campsites. The owners, Aline and Stephan, live on site and they or one of their team are always visible ‘doing things’. For example, when we were there in September the worn grass areas were being reseeded ready for next year. This reminded us very much of the attention to detail seen on Club sites in the UK, which is probably why we felt so comfortable there. The toilets, showers, wash up and laundry are squeaky clean and there is always hot water. Everything about the site is immaculate, including the pitches and even the recycling area. Our grass super pitch was a good size and fairly flat, with a view down to Lake Thun and up to the mountains. The location is rural but it is an easy walk along back roads into Interlaken. There are plenty of walking and cycling opportunities directly from the site and lots of things to do without travelling too far. Guests get a Visitors Card which gives free travel on local transport and substantial discounts at many attractions. Leaflets and advice are available from reception. On Friday evenings and Saturday mornings the nearby rifle range was operating, but otherwise all was peace and quiet, just the donging of cow bells.

Excellent site in stunning location

Stayed here many times and never disappoints. In fact, large proportion of visitors seem to be returnees, which speaks volumes. Run by the same family for many decades, the site is well cared for and always looking to improve. Pitches are level and the owner sites each unit personally to ensure you have the best arrangement. Good little shop and an excellent source of local information with vouchers available for many popular attractions. One of the great things about Interlaken is the local visitors card that not only gives discounts but also free travel on buses and trains within the immediate area. The site itself is only a 5-10 minute walk from two local bus routes that offer a half-hourly service into the town. Good cycling and walking locally. Interlaken itself can be busy in high season but it’s easy to find quiet spots and there are some excellent shops and cafes. The surrounding area has some of the best scenery and visitor attractions in Switzerland and local transport links are first-class.

Fabulous

We stayed for 7 nights August 2017, met with a real sense of nothing is too much trouble, everyone worked hard to make our stay just fabulous. The hot tub in the rain was truly memorable, the pitch was fantastic with the most perfect views. The washing facilities were spotless any time of the day. A perfect caravan site.
