Le Capelan is a very attractive site with a warm and friendly welcome, only one kilometre from the picturesque market town of Meyrueis. It has 66 level, grassy touring pitches (10A electricity), most with some shade. It is on the banks of the (unfenced) River Jonte, so families with young children may prefer a pitch further from the river. For fishermen and rock climbers, this is a special site with three kilometres of trout fishing river and climbs of up to 25 metres, all on site. The swimming pool, across the road, is set high on the mountainside and is reached via steps or a longer path.
Meyrueis is accessible from the campsite via a riverside walk, marking the start of the Gorges de la Jonte, with the better known Gorges du Tarn running a little to the north. The area is a great for walking, cycling and nature lovers. The Belvédère des Vautours, a few minutes up the road, is a superb centre for studying the recently reintroduced Vultures. Also nearby are several large caves, a Bison farm, an Insect Museum and a large number of activities to suit the whole family.
