Alan Rogers Review

This campsite is located beside a lake on one side and by the River Saône on another. There are 160 large, flat, grass pitches with 6A electric hook-ups. Those overlooking the river being almost entirely taken up by permanent pitches. During July and August there are pony and carriage rides, with a fireworks display and dance taking place around mid August. Just outside the site perimeter a licensed bar/restaurant offers well priced meals, as well as bread and other basic provisions. Unfortunately the proximity of various roads to the site means that there is a fair amount of traffic noise. Fishing is allowed, however, riverside access on site is limited by the permanent pitches.

Swimming is permitted in the lake and there is a beach area with ample space for sunbathing. A special overhead cable apparatus allows water-skiing and wakeboarding for several people at the same time without the need for motor boats. A small lakeside bar sells snacks, ice creams and non-alcoholic drinks. Campers can use the slipway to launch their own boats. Maps are available at reception for walking and cycling.


The larger of the two toilet blocks is on two levels: dishwashing and laundry sinks on ground level, with separate ladies’ and men’s toilets, washbasins (open and in cabins) up a flight of stairs. The second block, on one level, provides similar facilities plus a separate shower and toilet room for disabled visitors. Washing machine and several clothes lines. Play area. Boules. Free WiFi in reception area.
