I want to take my son on a backpack trip in Ticino and stay in a tent. Haven't been able to find any information regarding where it is and where it is not allowed. Somewhere I remember reading that it is ok to camp around the alpine huts. Is this correct?

Hi Rintintin,

You'll find details on mpsites and particularly the links under "More on other websites". I would not camp near huts, or at least first consult with the warden.
