User Review( votes)
Camping Hermitage is set in the hills overlooking the spa town of Merano. Access to the site is easy, just a few minutes from the SS38. The campsite is within the grounds of a hotel. Consequently, guests for the campsite and hotel share some of the common facilities such as free wifi and the sun terrace.
Pitches come in various shapes and sizes. As a result, staff allocate pitches upon check in. This is a fair system. Large units are allocated large pitches. Smaller units are alllocated a smaller pitch. After all, a large unit cannot fit on a small pitch!
On site facilities at Camping Hermitage are plentiful and include the following:
- Hard stand pitches with electric
- Fresh water tap and drain at each pitch
- Most pitches offer pleasant views towards Merano and the mountains
- Excellent toilet/shower block
- “Private bathrooms” available for a supplement
- Pot wash and laundry
- Swimming pool
- Sun terrace
- Motorhome service point – slightly awkward due to the slope
- Waste recycling facilities
Noteworthy of a mention, there is no shop on site, so bear this in mind when arriving!
A bus stop – a few minutes walk from the site – runs to Merano. A day ticket presently costs €4.00.
There is a pleasant walk through woodland to the “Meran 2000 ski lift”. Dogs are welcome on site and this walk makes for an enjoyable stroll for our friends on four legs!
The hotel restaurant is available for campsite guests to use. We sampled the pizzeria and for a bill of €23.00, we enjoyed two large pizzas, wine and sparkling water. Given the location, this is excellent value for money.

We visited Camping Hermitage whilst travelling from Samnaun in Switzerland (duty free town) to Lake Garda in Italy, via another toll free route.
