This appears to be the only campsite in Verona so if you want to camp you may have no option but to come here. There is NO sense of luxury here, this is camping at its most rustic, the hot water is only on for 2 houra each morning and evening, there is no bar, restaurant or pool and most of the individual pitches are a walk away with some kind of gradient. The shower and toilet rooms are often not lit and although they are pretty clean, this is certainly not at the top end of the scale in terms of amenities.
That said, it has some cracking views over Verona from just below the castle which dominates the north of the river and it has many communal cooking areas so there is a very social feel to it.
The guy who runs it is (i think) a botanist either by trade or casually and so nature is allowed to roam free over the entire site; lizards, cockroaches, all manner of butterflies and crickets are just some of the creatures you may see on wanders around the site.
There is a shop on site and you can walk through the grounds of the castle and down into Verona in less than 10 mins (though it takes substantially longer coming back up if you are me).
There are not many car parking spaces and most of the sites seems to cater for tents so camper vans should think about booking in advance if you can.
I have been here twice and love it, my fiancee was less keen mainly due to once being unable to use the toilet paper in the (non-bowl style) toilets a result of the friendly cockroach which had settled down for the day there!!
If you come expecting a very rustic experience and don't mind a bit of nature then the views and the tranquility will appeal nicely.

... to walk over lots of slippery rocks to reach a deep enough area. After developing a crab-style slide/walk we reached a good place with minor injuries. After having ice creams Lucy and Emma moved their towels to follow the sun, however they seemed to annoy it as it decided to disappear behind a lot of clouds. So for the past couple of hours the temperature has become bearable for the first time since being in Italy. Katie even used the word 'chilly'! ...
... carry out the fining process with 4 girls who clearly couldn't understand him or maybe he realised by the time he'd sorted it out we'd be at Garda. Finding our hostel was easy using the signs they have usefully placed directing us to there. Wish every hostel was that easy to find. Still enough time to get very hot though. We went straight to the lake. Pretty but not quite lake bled style. We are in the tourist resort area, but we didn't ...
... the origin of the masons. On a sidewalk built by the masons you could see cut into one square the shape of two eyes. A sign that there was a Masonic temple there below ground. The guide mentioned the line of history of the masons even in the one dollar bill of the US. I was able to pull out a one dollar bill. My contribution to the Italian speaking group. Look at the top of the pyramid on the dollar bill and see a ...
Observations Sometimes one has to be the master of their own fate. As in Greece when I chose to visit the acropolis da sola-alone- so this morning I decided I will travel to Verona. Annalia has taken on a translation job and the weather will be extremely hot no matter where I am. Three hours on an air conditioned train will not be hard to take. I bought a first class ticket for the Frecciabianca, I have a hotel reservation ...
... born and raised in Lancashire at Accrington congregation - Jo! He also helped out on the Maryport hall build! After meeting everyone (which can be done very easly because there is only 22 publishers and 3 of those family's were away) in the foyer at the back, with a large glass literature counter which looked really smart, we walked into a 130ish seated hall and we took our arm chair seats. The meeting began and a large screen ...
