Family campsite Rioclar is beautifully situated in a widely-forested area with views of the surrounding Alpine peaks in the heart of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department. With 8000 trees covering 200 camping pitches, you can imagine how green it must be. Everything revolves around sports and active recreation: you can go hiking, cycling, mountain biking, rafting, paragliding, and kayaking down the churning river. After an active day, you can relax and unwind in the heated swimming pool with wonderful views.
Laze in a hammock
The pitches are situated among the pine trees, larches and Mediterranean trees on the banks of the Ubaye river. An ideal spot to tie up your hammock and laze the day away. If you forgot to bring a hammock, don't worry, you can rent one at the campsite shop. Each pitch varies in shape and size, therefore it is important that you specify the kind and size of pitch you need when making the reservation so that the owner can find the ideal spot for you.
All the pitches have shade and electricity and there is always a water tap nearby. The pitches are mostly level. People wishing to rent accommodations can choose from comfortable mobile homes in the woods, characteristic cabins and simply-furnished caravans, which have beautiful views but no sanitation. The sanitary facilities are modern and clean.
This area, with its tall mountains, offers plenty of opportunities for the active cyclist and for white-water sports. Racing cyclists can indulge themselves in the surrounding mountain passes. Mountain bikers can explore the 340-km network of marked trails. The Rioraft club is situated next to the campsite. The club also organises baby rafting for children from 5 years of age.
