General information

The cosy terrace camping site Les Gorges de l'Oignon is located directly on the banks of the reservoir of the same name in the green foothills of the Jura mountains (Ain Departement). The spacious pitches on grass are separated from each other by hedges and accessible via sloping paths. The exquisite vista over the reservoir and the hills is striking, and you have a view higher up of the swimming pool with toddler's pool and Jacuzzi.

View of the lake

The pitches at the Les Gorges de l'Oignon camping site are laid out on terraces so that in most cases, you will have a beautiful of the reservoir and the surrounding green hills. To provide you with the privacy you need, the pitches, which always offer some shade, are demarcated with hedges. Some pitches are located along the lake and are completely free to choose from.

Luxury accommodation

Two well-maintained sanitary blocks offer showers, toilets, lavatories, a bathroom for babies and a lavatory for handicapped persons. For campers without their own tent or caravan, there are wooden chalets and mobile homes for rent, both with their own sanitary facilities and covered veranda.

Active holiday

Young and old alike will enjoy themselves at the water park, featuring a large heated swimming pool, a heated play pool with water spouts, a rapids run and a paddling pool (for toddlers only). Thanks to the location, you will have a magnificent view of the upper part of the grounds, right from your lounger.

Sports lovers can play to their heart's content at the football and volleyball pitch or work on their table tennis or jeu de boules skills. You can also play or learn golf here. Fishing enthusiasts can cast their lines on the banks of the lake. In the evening during high season, the whole family can get together at theme nights (including dance and karaoke).

Prima camping. Onvoorstelbaar dat het in het hoofdseizoen hier zo rustig is. Sanitairgebouwen schoon, maar kan her en der wel wat onderhoud gebruiken. Animatie in het Frans, wat wel jammer is voor de kinderen.

Mooie terrassencamping, en in voorseizoen heel rustig. Ik had onverwacht even wat administratieve zaken te regelen met NL, en men was zeer hulpvaardig met scannen en uitdraaien van documenten. Waarom er wel een uitgebreide kaart hing, maar alleen vette pizza\'s te krijgen waren... dat was jammer! Het enige wat ik jammer vond overigens. Wij entertainen onszelf, dus dat heb ik niet nodig op de camping. Prachtig groot zwembad (wat wij niet gebruikt hebben). Mooi meertje en veel wandelmogelijkheden.

We hebben 2 weken vertoefd op deze camping. In de omgeving niets te beleven, maar dat wisten we van te voren en waren daar ook niet naar op zoek. De plaats aan het meer was ruim met mooi uitzicht. Echter de plaatsen worden niet onderhouden (veel wildgroei van de planten). Het sanitair was gewoon niet schoon. Wordt echt met de Franse slag schoongemaakt. Er was alleen een klein toiletgebouw tot de beschikking voor warm water. De ketel had het begeven. Dat was dus met 125 plaatsen met 3 douches en 3 wasbakken voor de afwas je behelpen en dan dus nog vaak koud water. Het zwembad was prachtig en voor de kinderen lekker om in te vertoeven. Lekkere ligbedden met ook zondig schaduw. Je mocht daar niet roken en toch lag er meer dan een week peuken op de grond. Er werd dus ook daar met de Franse slag schoongemaakt. In de kantine kun je iets eten maar zijn niet uitgerust voor zo een grote camping. Had je niet voor 10h gereserveerd kon je pas om half 10 een pizza krijgen. Die waren dan weer wel lekker. De eigenaren kwamen niet verder dan de receptie/ zwembad. Er was totaal geen controle op de camping. De speeltuin was fantastisch voor de kinderen en genoeg om mee te spelen. Een voetbalgoal was op t gras bij t meer geplant en wilde je niet je enkelbanden scheuren moest je daar gaan zeker niet gaan voetballen. Animatie zou er zijn, maar denk daar niet te veel van. Het meisje wat de friet bakte ging dan nog net op zn Frans een speurtocht uitzetten. Iedere dan een uurtje en meer was het niet.
