Alan Rogers Review

Les Rives du Lac lies within the Buech region of the Hautes-Alpes department, close to the small resort town of Veynes. This is a good base for outdoor activities, such as hiking, riding, paragliding, mountain biking, rock climbing or potholing. The site is located on the banks of the 5.5 ha. lake, Les Iscles, which offers good opportunities for various water based activities (swimming, pedaloes, fishing.) The lake is shallow and lifeguards are on duty during July and August. Campsite amenities include a convivial bar/restaurant, which is used for entertainment in peak season. There are 109 semi-shaded touring pitches here, all of which have electrical connections (10A). Fifteen Alpine chalets and mobile homes are also available to rent.

This is excellent walking country and the site’s friendly owners will be pleased to recommend possible routes – there are no fewer than 65 paths close to the site. Alternatively, this is good base to explore the Villages Perchés, nestling against mountain sides, or the larger town of Gap to the east.
