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 - Location was excellent, very comfortable.
Liked - Location of the site was excellent we had a view of the bridge although there is a fence between the campsite and the river. Pitches were very generous.
Disliked - This is not the sites fault but the first night there were the local youths going to the night club up the river path that runs along the campsite. Sing and shouting until 3 in the morning. Not great. Next night woken at 5 am with a boot sale or some stall market setting up on the said path. Oh well apart from that lovely.

Disliked - If you have a motorhome/ caravan the toilet chemical empty area maybe needs updating and checking more regularly.
Liked - The young warden couple were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location of the site is fantastic and the pitch was a good size.
Disliked - The toilet/shower block felt a bit like a prison block and was very cold and unwelcoming on a march morning. The push button operation of shower lasted anywhere between 2-8 seconds which wasn't good when the wind is whistling above and below your shower door. No facilities were open during our stay so unable to comment.
