Camping des Grands Prés is conveniently situated beside the river, only a 250 m. level walk from the town centre and next door to the swimming pool (July/Aug), play area, boules pitches and canoeing centre. The 180 touring pitches, 150 with electricity (4/6A), are on mainly flat grass, clearly marked, but not actually separated. There is variable shade from a variety of trees. The site is busy over an extended season and the pitches beside the river are quickly taken up. Some traffic noise from the N10 which passes the rear of the site.
Vendôme is a fascinating and beautiful old town situated on, and criss-crossed by tributaries of, the River Loir (not to be confused with the Loire) and it is well worth a visit.
