Why stay here ...

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. Interlaken’s Unterseen district features a medieval church, pretty chalets and small restaurants serving traditional cuisine.

Amazing Views

Lazy Rancho
What an amazing site. Views of the snow capped mountains are second to none. Clean, well maintained, friendly staff, nice facilities, etc.... Other reviews have said it better than me but it's the perfect site to explore the area from.

Excellent site in outstanding location! Thoroughly enjoyed our visit

Lazy Rancho
Site is clearly posted from main routes, last section of road to the site has passing places but is not a busy road. We were welcomed by Aline and Stephan, who have owned and run this site for 37 years. Their experience shows and everything runs like a well oiled Swiss clock! The site had just opened for the season but was extremely busy as it was Easter. Stephan escorted us to our level, grass pitch and helped site the caravan, he connected us to both water and electricity on our allocated pitch ( waste also on pitch) The mountain view was truly breathtaking and ever changing with the light. Magnificent! The excellent facilities are immaculately clean. Excellent fresh bread can be ordered daily at the on site shop. This site is well located for exploring Interlaken and the Bernese Oberland. Very close to both Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. Excellent base for walkers, cyclists and climbers. Paragliding is very popular with opportunities to experience this locally. Loved the sound of church bells through the valley and the sound of cow bells ( like a wind chime!) Switzerland is very expensive, the beauty of touring in our caravan( motor homes most popular here) is that you can enjoy all this beautiful area has to offer but keep within your budget by catering for ourselves. Huge thanks to Alisa and Stephan and the team at Lazy Rancho for ensuring our week long experience was wonderful. Site and facilities are beautifully maintained, new play equipment has just been installed. We would highly recommend this site.

EXTENSIVE Damage caused by their mower

Lazy Rancho

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.

Response from the site

Dear Sam and Hazel,

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. We have valued you both as guests for many years and we have always highly appreciated your business. We are saddened to see your review after our communications and having lead an investigation into your matter.

We have contacted our claims specialist at our business liability insurance Helvetia Versicherungen – based in 4103 Bottmingen, Switzerland to review your damage and they have conducted an investigation with the pictures you have sent us as well as the pictures and measurements of our John Deere lawn mower.  The claim has been dismissed by them as the height of the damage does not match the body or the height of the lawn mower itself, as well as the colour differences. Your damage is turquoise while the John Deere vehicle is a deep green with bright yellow.

We understand the frustration and inconvenience, but this damage has not been done by Daniel with our lawn mower on our campsite.

In case you have any further questions or concerns we would be happy to connect you with our claim specialist who lead the investigation.

We wish you lovely holidays and a happy new year

All the best

A great location

Lazy Rancho
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

Lazy Rancho
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.
