from 32 reviews Write review

In the Camargue, the marshy habitat of flamingos, black bulls and wild horses, you will find campsite Le Clos du Rhône. Here you camp directly at the Mediterranean Sea and the sandy beach, the place for a fresh dive or a kite surf adventure. If the sea is too cold, you can take a dive in the heated swimming pool. For a special experience, drive to the ornithological park of Pont-de-Gau, the place to spot flamingos. Don't forget your binoculars!

Welcome to the Camargue

White cobblestone houses with orange roofs: you will recognise Le Clos du Rhône campsite by its characteristic building style in the Camargue, the vast marshland area in the south of France. This is where the Rhône finds its exit to the Mediterranean. The campsite is situated directly at the sea, on a quiet spot between the various lakes of the nature reserve.

Swimming pool complex

A large area near the entrance of the campsite has been transformed into a swimming complex. Here you can take a dip in the heated swimming pool, between clusters of deckchairs and wicker parasols. For the little ones, there is a nice paddling pool where they can enjoy a bath. Two large water slides are the domain of the adventurous youth.

Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer and the Mediterranean

Pass through a gate and you are on the sandy beach at the Mediterranean Sea. For a day of sunbathing and swimming, beach and sea are perfect. And when the wind does its work, the kite-surfers come to this stretch of sea. The beach extends as far as the little port of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, where, after a few interruptions and sections with beach huts, it stretches along the kilometre-long coast.

Travelling party: Couple

Really nice site, good size pitches, only problem some low branches on trees so dragged along side of van. As out of season got a really nice pitch with views of the sea. Lovely pools and slides. 5 minute cycle ride into town and 15 minute cycle ride to start of path into carnage and where the flamingoes.

We did not stay here. The mistake the staff made was to let us wander around the site to find a pitch. We came here to find shade, but there was none. Just a dust bowl. Plus noisy at the swimming pool. Not for us.

Travelling party: Couple

1. despite being reassured that reservation was unnecessary – when I phoned 3 days before – when we arrived the place was full.
2. Because there were no \"ACSI\" pitches left, we were charged more per day on top of the standard ACSI rate, for a water connection, despite the fact that we could not use it, and you could argue that – given 1 above – they should have waived the charge.
3. Their website gives the impression that the piches are properly separated, and sheltered; They are not. The divisions are marked with plates in the ground, and painted sticks.
4. Most camping sites place trees or water stations between pitches; They don’t, such items were often right in the middle (making parking a caravan or campervan interesting).
5. Having arrived at about 7.30 pm and set up the tent, we went to the onsite cafe at about 9.10 pm for something to eat. We were informed that the kitchen was shut and we could only have a pizza; Part way through said pizza (which with no salad or aother accompaniment) the staff locked the door and started clearing other tables.
6. On another day at about 4 pm, when the temperature was over 30C, said café – where the ice cream cabinet was located – was closed till 5.30 pm, and refused to open to sell ice creams.
7. On one day when I drove up to the beach access gate to see if I could drop my wife (and chairs, parasol etc.) off and then walk back myself, they dumped a huge pot in the access way, thus preventing any such access.
8. There was never any hot water in the sinks or showers, and if the temperature ever did accidentally slip above tepid then it only ran for 10 seconds with the stupid push “taps”.
9. The toilet block had no entrance marked “Ladies’ Toilets” in any language. The “main” door had many pictures of baths, showers, sinks etc. If ladies went through that door they had to pass through the gents showers, or they could just go through the door marked “laundry sinks”. Obvious really!
10. The pitches were not mown after users left.
11. The pitches were not cleared of any rubbish left by users.
12. The pitches (certainly in the area where we were located) were so stony as to be painful to walk on, and damaging for groundsheets (for everyone, not just tenters).
13. The reception is only open from 9 am to 5 pm, which is hardly ideal if you arrive late or wish to leave early – as most campers tend to do

Our first trip to the Carmargue. The site is about a 20 minute walk outside of St Maries de la Mer, but if you are able to cycle it would only take about ten on a perfectly flat cycle path. We had plenty of options as far as pitches were concerned and they were all quite spacious. It was, however, quite windy when we were there and we had to turn our motor home round a couple of times. There is a small beach within walking distance and the water was warm. Fresh bread in the bar each day. Highlight for us was the boat trip on the Tika II which goes from just outside the camp site. 10Euros for a couple of hours down the Petit Rhone to see the birds, horses and bulls. The town is lovely, too many restaurants to chose from, but the food we had on one was excellent. Big Spanish influence in the area. The downside was the toilet facilities, they're modern but not particularly clean and for some strange reason the staff chose to clean them between 7.30 and 9 in the morning. Fortunately we have very good facilities in our motor home and tended to use them instead. There is a very good motor home point on site so that was an added bonus for us. Would we visit again - probably, but we've ticked off the Carmargue so it'll be a while before we return.
