Sharon Everitt sent me details of a website about camping sites in Switzerland:

HOME

NB:
*2 well known supermarkets chains throughout Switzerland are called MIGROS (cheaper but with few brands names) & COOP(also sells alcohol) Most of the villages have either or both. (Definitely worth looking for if you’re on a tight budget)
*The average price for a tent & 2 adults per nite are quoted above.
*Washing machine loads varied from 1-5CHF.
*Most campsites charged 1CHF for a 4min hot shower.
