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

Heerlijke tijd gehad op camping Rioclar medio augustus 2013. Prachtige bergomgeving om heerlijk in te wandelen of te genieten van wat de rivier kan bieden. Op redelijk te rijden afstand is een groot meer; gratis, schoon zwemwater met een schitterend uitzicht. Een dagje Italië - om ook zelf eens echt Italiaans ijs te eten - is goed te doen met de auto. De relaxte sfeer op de camping, met vriendelijke en tot veel bereide medewerkers, en een voldoende comfortabele mobilhome met zeer ruim terras maakte het voor ons gezin (met 2 meisjes in de puberleeftijd) een lekkere vakantietijd. Een aanrader!

Zeer fijne camping in een mooie omgeving, vriendelijk personeel. Pubers zoeken elkaar op om s avonds naar het kleine meertje naast de camping te gaan daar mogen ze kampvuur stoken.
In de omgeving veel te doen; wandelen, raften,karten, cannyoningen,klimbos, paardrijden, zwemmen in het stuwmeer waar je ook kunt waterskiën ,surfen,kiten, kanoën etc etc etc.

Wij hebben het hier zo naar ons zin dat we voor de 3e keer gaan .

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Een mooie rustige camping in een prachtig bergachtig gebied met veel mogelijkheden voor met name kinderen vanaf 12 jaar. De camping heeft hele ruime plaatsen onder de bomen en de eigenaar is Vlaming en uitermate vriendelijk, veel persoonlijke aandacht. Gelegen aan rivier de L'Ubaye en op loopafstand van een prachtig meertje waarin gezwommen kan worden. Geen enkele overlast gehad van jeugd, wel waren er 's avonds gezellige voetbal- en pingpongactiviteiten met name voor de oudere jeugd.
Vanaf de camping mogelijkheid tot raften, kano etc.
Het zwembad is niet al te groot maar voor onze kids was het prima omdat het nog erg rustig was.
Sanitair werd meerdere keren per dag schoongemaakt. Minpuntje was dat het sanitairgebouw dan ook wat lang gesloten was. Voldoende waterpunten verdeeld over de camping.
Eten in het restaurant was prima maar aardig aan de prijs. Spullen in het campingwinkeltje aan de dure kant. Lidl op ongeveer 5 km, prima restaurants in Barcelonnette.

Prachtig gelegen camping op 1100 m hoogte, waardoor zelfs in augustus de nachten fris kunnen zijn. Plekken zijn gevarieerd van grootte en liggen in een mooi dennenbos langs de rivier. Deze is echter (zeer) koud en niet toegankelijk bij de camping, zeker niet voor(kleine) kinderen. Behulpzame camping medewerkers. Zwembad is redelijk. Opgroeiende jeugd gaat graag samen kampvuren maken langs de rivier. Sportiviteit alom betreft water en bergsport. Gratis Wifi bij de receptie. Barcelonette op 9 km, Embrun uurtje rijden langs prachtige route.
Aanrader !!

Travelling party: Couple

Camping was niet wat we ervan gedacht hadden. Slecht en vuil sanitair. Schoonmaker was 2 keer per dag, 1 1/2 uur aanwezig en aaide over de vloeren. Ik hoorde van een gast dat er in de dames wc al een paar dagen een vuil inlegkruisje lag. Het invalidentoilet is in 2 weken 1 keer schoongemaakt nadat ik er wat van had gezegd. Na de tweede keer werd er helemaal niks mee gedaan.
