Anyone travelling in Graubünden by motorhome or bus can choose their destination flexibly. If you are going to spend the night outdoors, you should inform yourself about the possibilities beforehand.
There are 8 campsites in the Engadin. Nevertheless, this summer and autumn may be a bottleneck due to high demand. Anyone who then decides to spend the night in unmarked places, for example outside campsites, should pay attention to a few points to avoid unpleasant surprises. This is because the legal situation varies from municipality to municipality.
A general ban on camping is in force in the following landscape areas:
Under https://map.geo.admin.ch/ the protected areas and particularly sensitive habitats are listed in a detailed map. Using the search function, for example, the Swiss National Park, the federal hunting ban areas, fens, raised bogs, alluvial zones and game reserves can be displayed.

In the Engadine, depending on the municipality, there are further special, municipal restrictions in addition to the general prohibitions. For this reason, you should inquire about the legal situation in advance directly with the respective municipal administration, the local tourist office or the police. This also applies to spending the night in public parking lots. Also pay attention to signalization and parking time restrictions.
There are also temporary sites in St. Moritz, Silvaplana/Surlej, Maloja and at the Diavolezza valley station. Information about the temporary pitches can be obtained from the respective campsites.
If you want to camp on a private property or near a hut, ask the owner of the property or the hut warden for permission.
Basically, camping is a respectful approach to nature. Waste is not allowed to be left behind, including leftover food. Leave the place the way you want to find it. Be considerate of wild animals and do not make noise. Fire is not advised.
