Can't give you any specifics on campsites or otherwise, but look into Morzine - lovely town right in the middle of great terrain not too far of a drive from Geneva airport - good facilities in town inc. chairlift service for bikes, etc.

There's a good campsite in Morzine. I've stayed there a few times.

Another place to consider is Venosc, part of Les Deux Alpes. Very near a lift and beautiful valley.

Hi Potsie, have you been able to find a camp site with a bike lockup facility?

I'd like to go camping in the Portes du Soleil area this year and so far have been unable to find any information on this.
