Nice and friendly owners. Dutch enclave- so our dutch-speaking kids found a lot of friends and had a splendid time. Loads and loads to see and do in the region. Swimming in the lake was fun, the water was warm in July. Overall- a positive experience.

Wir waren nur 3 Tage dort an denen es an 2 Tagen ununterbrochen geregnet hat. Die Anlage ist stark terassiert mit grossen Stellplätzen direkt am See gelegen und macht einen gepfegtem Eindruck. Sanitär sauber. Die Besitzen sind sehr freundlich. Da wir in der Vorsaison da waren, waren die Wege am und um den See leider noch total zugewachsen. Eigentlich war es recht ruhig, bis auf das Tontauben schiessen auf der gegenüberliegenden Seeseite. Einkaufsmöglichkeit in Oyonnax.

Camping avec de nouveau gérant qui viennent juste de reprendre. Disponible et souriant. Sanitaire très propre et fermé. Emplacement grand pourvu d\'un point d\'eau. Belle halte en sortie du jura. Très agréable A recommander

Ein bezaubernder kleiner CP im franz. Jura mit gepflegter angenehmer Atmosphäre und ausgesprochen freundlichem Personal. Die Stellflächen sind eben, groß genug und durch Büsche, Bäume und Hecken getrennt. Wir hatten Glück und bekamen einen Stellplatz in vorderster Reihe mit Blick auf den See. Beschaulicher kann man nicht campen. Ein CP für Naturliebhaber abseits aller Touristenströme, geeignet, um sich so richtig zu entspannen. Die Sanitäranlagen sind in Ordnung und der freie WiFi-Zugang in der Nähe der Rezeption ein angenehmes Plus.

What a find! Stayed on route to the south for a night, beautiful surroundings and very friendly welcome on arrival. Swimming pool lovely and clean with plenty of sun beds, nice bar area, showers nice and clean and hot. Only downside for us was that there was not much to do in the surrounding area on foot or on bike and we didn\'t want to take our motorhome out again, but the sun was out so an ideal place to relax and unwind for a night! Would definitely recommend.

Une très heureuse découverte. Accueil familial fantastique de la part du jeune couple qui vient de reprendre ce camping très agréable. Grand emplacement merveilleusement situé au bord du lac avec vue sur les montagnes également. Petit resto simple mais cuisine généreuse préparée avec beaucoup d\'amour…les pizzas super garnies préparées Anthony sont les meilleures que nous ayons dégustées depuis très longtemps. Piscine agréable.
Convient pour court et long séjour. on a vraiment adoré ce camping.
