Just fably gorgeous: friendly Camping Le Bivouac in Fribourg's Veveyse District is high in the hills above Lake Geneva, among woods and meadows, and with the fably spectacular views you'd expect in this mountainy part of Switzerland.
If you also want watersports, Geneva is just 15 minutes' drive from base, but if your tastes tend more towards the historic, the old village of Châtel-Saint-Denis, part of the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites, is within walking distance. Montreux and Gruyères are both a short drive away.
Settle down among mountain air and on spacious pitches for a stay here among up to date facilities including a seasonal outdoor pool, a bar and restaurant with takeaway, a TV room and a playground. Amenities include a toilet and shower block and a washing-up area, and there's also a grocery shop.

From the manager...
Thank you for the comment. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. I feel sorry that you didn't found all the showers, we have ten shower cabins. You should have asked me.
I hope you had a nice stay in Switzerland though.
A wonderful camping experience.

Camping Le Bivouac's local village of Châtel-Saint-Denis and the nearby hamlet of Prayoud are on the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites and are handsomely well worth a scenic wander around, to see such sights as the Saint-Denis Church, listed as a Swiss heritage site of national significance.
Montreux, right on Lake Geneva at the foot of the Alps, is also well worth a wander for its many heritage sites like Crêtes and Châtelard castles, the Marché couvert, the Audiorama and the Territet – used in its previous Grand-Hôtel life as the recording studio for Deep Purple's album Machine Head.
Also get hither to Gruyères, the medieval town famed for its cheese, the towns of Bern, Fribourg, Lausanne and Geneva, long leisurely walks around Lake Geneva, and the top of Moléson mountain, accessible by splendidly scenic cable car.
