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.

  • Go to the Lake of Mergozzo means finding a suitable environment for families and above all a clear water.

  • A really nice and quiet. At least on a foggy Sunday in February. In summer I suppose the atmosphere will be very different, even for its bathing water. One note on the stands, very few. I wonder on a sunny Sunday in July where you can put your car.

  • We went in the region off season and it was fairly magical, almost no one but a little snow on the hills and beautiful colors

  • Great place for swimming.
  • Relaxing bathing area with great facilities. Young staff and helpful. Paddle boats, canoes up to 2 beds, deckchairs and beach loungers and umbrellas: convenient and well maintained. Good choice for refreshment. The beach is well taken care of, although it could earn if they get land recovery works in winter by the State and the municipality of mergozzo. Parking is a sore point. That surcharge is always more expensive and always cared less municipal Manager of mergozzo. Free car parks are few or far apart ... It's about time to give a space shuttle or manage to grow tourism in areas like this.
