Lago di Mergozzo is a small sub-alpine lake in northern Italy just to the west of Lago Maggiore and north of Lago d'Orta, at the mouth of the Val d’Ossola in the province of Verbano Cusio Ossola, Piedmont.In ancient times it was the extreme point of the short northwestern arm of Lago Maggiore, formed by glaciation. However repeated flooding of Maggiore’s tributary the Toce deposited sediment which gradually formed a stretch of land which cut off Mergozzo from the larger expanse of water, and from the Toce itself. Today the settlement of Fondotoce stands on this alluvial plain. The small town Mergozzo, which lies at the other end of the lake, gives it its name. The greater part of the lake falls within the commune of Mergozzo, the rest within Verbania.Monte Orfano rises from the south-west shore of the lake; the limestone rocks of which it is composed are heavily quarried. On the opposite side of the lake the mountains form the beginning of the Corni di Nibbio chain which divides the Val d’Ossola from the Valgrande and its National Park.

    I have to say it was a nice surprise this 8 km circumference Lake just a few km from Stresa. Several campsites along the shores and beaches for bathing at a good price. Many families and many foreigners. You can canoe or walk around the beautiful lakeside promenade up to Mengozzo. Beautiful country with hotels restaurants and pizzerias. Parking lots at a good price. I don't think it's good enough for a vacation but definitely worth a visit.
