Campsite Rioclar ***

General information
Guide price €28.50

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.

Adventure sports

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.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Net terug van een vakantie in Zuid-Frankrijk, waarvan een week op Rioclar. We hadden de dag van aankomst autopech en kwamen met de taxi 's avonds laat aan. We werden direct vriendelijk ontvangen door Pierre die ons in het donker op weg hielp. Ik vroeg hem of het restaurant wellicht nog open was, daar ons gezin nog niet gegeten had. Hij bood ons vervolgens spontaan een maaltijd aan. De volgende dag kwam 's ochtend zijn zoon voorrijden en vroeg of hij ons naar de plaatselijke supermarkt kon brengen voor boodschappen. Na het halen van de boodschappen werd (ook weer spontaan) een extra koelkast geplaatst bij de mobilehome die we haden gehuurd, om het voedsel te koelen. We hebben vervolgens een aantal dagen moeten wachten voor vervangend vervoer, maar hebben ons uitstekend vermaakt op de camping.

Pour y avoir passer mes vacances durant plusieurs années: un accueil chaleureux, un camping très propre avec des infrastructures superbes et très bien entretenues. Vraiment mais alors vraiment un camping à recommander. Et je ne parle pas de l'amabilité du patron, de son épouse et de ses enfants. Encore bravo.

Bonsoir, Voilà trois années que nous passons nos vacances au Rioclar! Un vrai camping de charme, on est en foret, avec de spacieux emplacements intimistes! Depuis plus de 20 ans que je campe je n'ai jamais trouvé un camping aussi atypique et spendide. A l'accueil un belge plein d'humour et de dérision, à l'épicerie, c cool, par contre, on paie et on réserve son pain la veille, au début en bon français moyen on rale et puis on comprend qu'on ne jette plus de pain... et c bien.
Resto sympa, piscine hyper propre, le maitre nageur et le boss la controle 6 fois par jour!
Les petits se réalent aux animations du matin (gratuite). On peux faire du sport l'APM au camping avec les animateurs et le soir toujours quelque chose.
Les sanitaires sont propres et entretenus 2 fois par jour (j'ai vu du nettoyage vers 13 heures pour ramasser les detritus des clients dans les bacs vaisselle, et j'ai vu le patron nettoyer les sanitaires à 2 heures du matin. SUPER.
