This site claims to be Europe's highest, perched at 1970 metres in the Swiss Alps.

The camping area is grassy and most of the pitches face down into the valley, but if you can reserve a spot on the hill you get a view up at Mout Collon's north face.

This is a postcard perfect area for walking and hiking, but there's one trip that every visitor should do, a walk up to Lac Bleu, from La Gouille. It's an easy walk and once you get there the water is crystal clear, running between a series of pools and little falls. There's even a cafe stop on the way back down.
