from 81 reviews Write review

The busy campground Val de Boutonne is within walking distance from the town of St. Jean d'Angély. The campground is well maintained and is in a quiet environment in a lovely park by a river and very near a recreation lake. The campsites are between 80 and 100 m2 and are lined up on streets in the shade of deciduous trees. You have the choice of separate or open sites. There are many passers-through who sometimes stay longer than planned because of the beautiful location.

Swimming and shopping

There is a small swimming pool (12 by 7 metres) and a kiddie pool where the guests can sun themselves on the lawn. The lifeguard monitors safety and makes sure that the French hygiene rules are followed. The most popular groceries are available on the campsite. You can order bread for the following morning.


The managers rent bikes, mountain bikes, canoes, kayaks, water bikes and row boats. So you can enjoy the lake and the surrounding area. The campsite is located on a cycling route. The lake is popular for anglers and canoers. We recommend having a drink at the restaurant on the lake to watch the sun go down. There are regular fireworks shows and wine tastings.

Beautiful starting point

The campground is near the historic town of St. Jean d'Angély, 3 km from the A10 motorway. An hour's drive away in the tourist area of Charentes you will find lovely villages and sights. The town centre of St. Jean d'Angély, built around the abbey, is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can walk there in just ten minutes.

Jean-Pierre G, on this campsite in June 2022


Travelling party: Single

Liked - Très bon état et propreté des sanitaires, en particulier la douche avec la température réglable.

Disliked - Etant venu pour une compétition qui a été annulée au dernier moment par le préfet, je n'ai passé que 2 nuits sur 4 (payées d'avance). J'ai demandé un avoir (même pas un remboursement) des deux nuits non passées, en vue d'un report, mais les responsables on refusé, car "ce n'est pas de leur faute". Dans un hôtel classique on ne paye qu'à la fin et on peut avoir de la souplesse, mais dans l'hôtellerie de plein air, faut payer d'avance, et dans cet établissement il n'y a aucune souplesse. Pas normal.

Liked - Le camping est très propre. C’est un petit camping où l’on se sent bien. En tant qu’habitués de campings nous avons beaucoup aimé le bloc sanitaire qui est neuf et propre. Le lac à côté est parfait pour occuper les enfants et ados.
Disliked - L’accueil est un peu froid.

Travelling party: Family with children <4 years

Liked - Le calme, hébergent spacieux et propre
Disliked - Un manque éclairage dans les allées, la fermeture du portail à 22h trop top. Prix emplacement 2ème voitures abusif (17€80 pour une semaine et hors période). Sur le site internet il n'est nullement précisé que la piscine ouvre de fin juin à septembre. Camping pas adapté
aux personnes à mobilité réduite et de plus quand les portes ferment à 22h.
