Alan Rogers Review

La Nizière is a spacious campsite in a woodland setting beside two lakes extending over 23 hectares. It is in a region of farmland, forests and hundreds of lakes. There are 70 pitches, most with electricity (6A), and long leads are advised. There is a small open grass section near the lake with good views. A larger, heavily shaded section further back has stony pitches, many occupied by seasonal caravans. There are also eightchalets close to a lake. The lakes are well stocked with fish, making the site popular with anglers. There are over 40 km. of walking and cycling tracks around the site.

The surrounding area covers a large flat plain between the rivers Saône, Rhône and Ain. The nearby town of Chalamont has a range of shops, bars and restaurants and there are many interesting places to visit.


Three clean, small basic blocks with many Turkish style WCs, facilities for disabled visitors, quite a distance from some of the pitches. Washing machine. Motorhome services (charged). Snack bar, restaurant and takeaway (all season). Games room/TV. Lake fishing but no bathing. Tennis. Pétanque. No barbecues. Some family activities in high season.
