TCS Camping – Strongly committed to camping

The largest variety of campsites in Switzerland – with over 70 years of experience. Close to nature, comfortable and enjoyable throughout Switzerland.

About TCS Camping

Spending a holiday in nature, nearby, sustainably and yet with a certain level of comfort has become increasingly popular among Swiss people in recent years. Camping, vanlife and glamping are the current leisure trends. TCS has been successfully defining camping in Switzerland for over 70 years. Keeping the future in mind while never forgetting its roots. 

The Touring Club Switzerland has been championing this popular leisure activity since 1949 and is on hand to offer campers advice, help and protection. TCS has operated campsites under the TCS Camping brand and is the largest and leading camping organisation in Switzerland with around 1 million overnight stays per year, 25 locations, 300 glamping accommodations and over 25,000 Camping members.

We focus on the customer experience. Whether you're a loyal regular customer or a young explorer, travelling with a tent, motorhome or looking for a comfortable rental accommodation and would like to enjoy the camping feeling, you will find a warm welcome at our TCS Camping locations. Together with our dedicated staff, we work every day to make the experience for our camping guests from home and abroad a pleasant, uncomplicated and exciting one. Every year we repair, adapt, upgrade and recreate – from sanitary facilities to luxury safari tents. TCS's decades of experience as a campsite operator benefits all sides.

We are convinced that the camping trend will continue to grow at a time of sustainable travel demands and the desire for recreational time close to nature. We look forward to continuing to help shape this nature-oriented form of recreation in Switzerland and to keeping it attractive.

We would be delighted to do so together with you.

Our quality

TCS Camping has been a campsite operator in Switzerland for over 70 years. Between Ticino and the Zurich Weinland, the Grisons and Lake Geneva, guests from near and far can enjoy our broad range of offers all year round. The sites are situated by the most beautiful Swiss lakes, rivers or in the middle of the mountains.

TCS Camping plays a pioneering role in the Swiss camping market, particularly when it comes to glamping and the trend towards high-quality, weatherproof and creatively designed rental accommodation on campsites. The number of rental accommodations grows every year – from luxurious safari tents to circus wagons and trendy wooden bungalows.

Innovative and forward-looking

TCS Camping attaches great importance to innovation and a forward-looking approach. Our success in recent years motivates us to continue to keep our finger on the pulse of the market in order to recognise and meet the ever-changing needs of our guests at an early stage.

Successful innovations and new developments:


Getting out into nature to enjoy the freedom and independence of holidays in a tent, camper or caravan has been attracting nature-lovers to campsites for decades. The basic idea of camping, namely to enjoy an uncomplicated recreational time close to nature, has remained the same despite the increased demands on the infrastructure. That is why the TCS campsites focus on the nature experience.

TCS Camping also attaches great importance to ensuring that local conditions and needs are taken into account in the planning and offer.

TCS Camping is committed to these sustainability principles:


  • One of the reasons for TCS Camping's success is the commitment of its employees. TCS Camping is committed to providing its employees with the best possible support in their development and to retaining them in the long term. That is why TCS Camping invests in an extensive training and development programme and in attractive benefits for its employees.
  • Every manager serves as a role model and ensures a working environment free of discrimination and harassment. A yearly survey is conducted to find out how employees feel, which raises awareness of workplace issues.
  • TCS Camping is committed to equal opportunities, equal pay and health and safety at work.
  • TCS Camping offers carefree camping adventures for people with mobility impairments by providing accessible bungalows in collaboration with the Cerebral Foundation and as a member of the Claire & George – Accessible Switzerland Foundation.
  • KulturLegi card: Even if you’re on a tight budget, you can enjoy relaxing holidays close to nature at TCS campsites – with a 30% discount during the low season.


  • TCS Camping consistently focuses on the responsible use of electricity, water and gas. All electricity needs are covered by renewable resources and gas consumption is offset with CO₂ certificates.
  • Campers support us through systematic waste separation and recycling at all campsites.
  • We place great emphasis on the environmentally friendly use of materials on the campsites and in customer communication. TCS Camping is constantly expanding its digital communication with customers and work processes in order to reduce paper consumption in the long term.
  • TCS campsites' regional roots play an important role in the customer experience. The cooperation with local businesses and regional tourism organisations benefits the region and creates a unique guest experience.
  • Swisstainable (Level I) – Sustainability strategy of Switzerland Tourism and the tourism industry
