Very large but well run site. All pitches on our field featured a small hard standing. Our area felt like we were on a site, within a site. The sanitary blocks were excellent. They were modern and kept very clean. There was a special room “Kinder Washland” that would make washing more exciting for kids. This included a shower with the head in an Elephant’s trunk. (The Elephant was the site’s mascot). There appeared to be lots organised for children on site as well. All reception staff spoke English. Around the site there were lots of permanently pitched tourers, with false roofs and wooden structures on the front for awnings. Many are well looked after but some had obviously not been visited in a while and looked rather tatty. Site has a good sized pool and a shop stocking some groceries and camping essentials. Lots to do in the area, including trips on Lake Constance and The Zeppelin Museum. You can also pop into Austria and Switzerland.

If you have kids, this is the site for you. If you're not travelling with children, probably best to give this one a miss! It's a large site with loads of children's activities, great outdoor pool, decent shop and 2 restaurants. Facilities ok, not the most upto date, but ok. Free showers. Children's washroom not to be missed- has a giant elephant with showerheads coming out of his trunk and arms- we loved it. Also be warned site mascot is an elephant called fany. Kids haven't stopped talking about then fun they had 'playing with fany' since we got back!

Italian restaurant and takeaway ok, but German restaurant was too smoky so never used it.

Location:

Well located within easy walking distance of the Bodensee, this site is an excellent base for exploring the this wonderful area. Nice lakeside walk and cycle route from the site. Helpful staff; English spoken.

Facilities:

The toilet and shower facilities are superb, with large, modern shower cubicles a motorhome service point, well stocked shop and bar. Motorhome overnight area adjacent for 10 euros per night.

Prices:

25 Euros per night for motorhome with two people and electricity. Good value for facilities and location. We used the overnight area outside and still had access to all the facilities.

This is a very large and very busy site on the outskirts of Lindau.

A car is essential however there is a bus that goes from the gate into Lindau itself and the whole area is fantastic for cycling. This is often on traffic free pathways.

There are many things for families to do but there are extra charges for some things. The shop is quite well stocked. The young girls in the office were able to speak clearly in English and were quite helpful. We used the restaurant one evening and the service was fast and the food was good value.

There is a range of entertainments but naturally it is all in German.

However on the downside I have to say that this is possibly the worst site I have been on in 30 years of caravanning in this country and Europe.

Maybe large sites are no longer for us as our children have married and so no longer come with us. We had originally booked for 2 weeks but we left after only 4 days. There had been rain but or pitch was in thick, heavy mud. We have a large van but had no room to put up our awning. However the major worry was the total disregard for safety. Vans were packed in like sardines all over the site. There was less that a meter between us and the next van.

Also - another tip - the site will not take English credit cards - so we had to pay in cash. If you were a family with one child for 2 weeks your would be paying over 550 Euros!

Summary: Good family campsite, with pool, clean facilities and activities. Was overcrowded and busy when we were there in the first week of August. Environment was quiet apart from occasional train on a nearby line and the usual campsite noise irritations. Reasonable location, but you have to drive or cycle to get anywhere. 20 minutes by bike or car from Lindau and Lake Constance. I would recommend this site to anyone wanting to enjoy Lindau and Lake Constance, and the mountain scenery. But maybe stay clear in the busy holiday period!

We travelled as two families in two large tents, with kids aged 6-9 to Gitzenweiler. We stopped off overnight in Reims on the way to break the journey, and it's another 6 hours or so past Reims. We booked several months in advance and received confirmation, but no deposit was required. No problem at check in though.

There is a small enclave of pre-pitched holiday tents and a few permanent sites, but most of the site was full of touring caravans and tents. The site was mainly full of Dutch and German people. To our dismay on arrival, the site was way overcrowded with tents and caravans almost touching in places. More like a car park than a camping ground, with tents pitched at rock festival density. There we no demarcations between pitches in certain areas of the site, and the management seemed to have decided to just pack 'em in. After check-in we were passed over to someone whose job it was to find us a pitch, and we were initially allocated some broken ground behind a long row of caravans. We had two large tents between us and weren't happy, so asked to be moved. We were allocated two larger sites in a caravan section, one of which was churned up mud from the previous occupants parking (following several days of torrential rain). We decided that as we had built-in groundsheets that we weren't too fussy about what was underneath (but had some very strange sensations underfoot all week!). So, our pitches were great in size – but beware the pack 'em in policy elsewhere in peak periods.

After we pitched we noticed a recommendation about “eco-camping” that we should have rented some wooden slats from reception to keep the groundsheet off the ground. They were €1 for a 2x1m pallet – so check this if this is a real requirement in the future as it could add a lot to your overall costs.

Apart from pitch density, the site was great. A single large (25*20m) pool plus toddler area, plus a small-ish adventure playground, spotless showers/toilets/laundry/sinks in three buildings, on site shop, 2 restaurants, takeaway, and kids entertainment laid on (in German though). The pool was heaving with kids – but hey – it was the peak holiday period. It's about a 20 minute cycle ride down to Lindau island off-road via the tracks at the back of the campsite. A little longer on the uphill return route though. There is some great local cycling and walking trails from the campsite – most of it is well sign-posted. The Austrian border is about 20 minutes by bike if you want to claim an international bike ride, and our best ride was over to Bregenz, up the Pfander-bahn cable car, and then a long long downhill ride through amazing mountain scenery across the border and all the way back to the campsite.

Lindau itself is a lovely cobbled town set on a connected island. Parking is tough and traffic heavy – mainly because of the trainline crossings. Lake Constance is accessible only in certain areas, and most people go to a “Seebad” -essentially a grassy beach with a pool and some lakeside swimming. We recommend the Lindau Seebad – was €3 per person, and had a kids adventure pool plus a 50m adults-only pool for serious swimmers. The lake was warm enough to swim in too, with a diving platform moored about 25m offshore.

There a loads of small towns within 10k of the campsite, and we ate out well at a local Gasthaus.
