Camping in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region means spending your holiday in surroundings filled with lavender fields, vineyards, mountain ridges and historical towns. You can enjoy all this to the fullest when you camp at campsite du Pont d'Avignon. This child-friendly campsite is located on an island in the Rhône river. This campsite is especially popular because it is a municipal campsite in Avignon. From the campsite, you can easily cross the river using the free ferry service or you can walk to the beautiful town centre in 20 minutes.
Camping in comfort
When you drive through the campsite, you can imagine yourself in a lush, green park. There are many trees and the camping pitches are situated on grass. Do you value your privacy during your holiday? Then choose a spacious camping pitch between tall hedges, which also provide plenty of shade. There are also open fields where you can pitch your tent or caravan.
Water fun in the swimming pool
The entire campsite is very green, and this also applies to the swimming pool area. The playfully constructed swimming pool is surrounded by plants, giving you that true holiday feeling when you go for a swim. There is also a paddling pool for the little ones. There are a number of loungers at your disposal.
The restaurant with a terrace is located directly next to the pool, allowing you to keep an eye on the children while they are busy splashing in the water. The children will not be bored in the peak season, with an enthusiastic entertainment team thinking up the most fun activities and games.

Liked - Everythings!!
Liked - Amazing location. Free ferry into Avignon. Views of the ancient cities on both sides of the island. Pont du gard and les baux in easy reach.
Disliked - We were hoping for lots of information and ideas from reception but we found this difficult. It could be in part due to our limited French.
Liked - Great place and situated right next to Avignon - walking or sailing distance
Liked - Best value for the money. Easy access to Avignon by the ferry after short walk. Nice amenities: clean pool, bar/restaurant kept good hours, laundry facilities, playground and pétanque court. Safe, clean, comfortable = excellent!
Disliked - The last day of our stay there was a music festival just on the other side of the camp. The music was too loud and disrupted what would would have been an otherwise peaceful Sunday... but that's no fault of the Campsite!
Liked - During our stay(low season) there were no extra events so sorry cannot comment, however...
This site is ideally positioned to visit the beautiful city of Avignon either fully on foot, or, via the free river ferry.and is thoroughly recommended.
Reception were very helpful, and for the lazy of us(and those simply out of prictice) were well versed in English, as were the bar staff and catering crew.
The bar is well stocked, and certainly not over-priced. Me and the missis enjoyed the banter with that staff and various other users of the bar and it's facilities.
In short we loved it...
Disliked - Usual river problems,mosquito's - TAKE DEET
Liked - Excellent position and convenient for the town
Disliked - Although we have stayed before we Would like clearer instructions available on the different ways out of the site to the various motoways
This is a remote site on one of two islands in the Rhône. It isn’t easy to get to and the road system around Avignon has to be one of the most confusing I have seen outside Italy. Not the sites fault but be aware particularly if you have a large outfit. Reception staff were friendly and let us choose our pitch, not sure what it would have been like if it were busy. This site is geared up for static holiday business in rented accommodation, touring pitches are an afterthought. We were there in May and the site should not have been open for business as only the toilets/showers were open during the week. ACSI need to be a lot more thorough in their site descriptions, specifically what facilities are available and when. The water stand pipes were of the push type and water flow is very low so filling the aqua-roll was tedious.
The toilet facilities were basic but no toilet seat or paper? Come on! The showers were OK and hot but I don’t believe they were cleaned at all during our stay. You can cycle into Avignon from the site along the Rhône on largely traffic-free tracks and Avignon is an interesting city. The adult pool was open (the kids pool was empty) but it was cold - very cold, couldn’t get any further than my knees! It said 16 degrees Celsius but I think they meant Fahrenheit! I wouldn’t go here again as it is too remote and difficult to get to.
