Camping Le Lion is an excellent spot for nature, bicycle and Ardèche enthusiasts, especially if you like peace and space. The location of the camping site (along the old river the Rhône, on the outskirts of the old town of Bourg-Saint-Andéol) is magnificent, as is the area. From here it is only half an hour's drive to the well-known Vallon Pont d’Arc and the Roman town of Orange.

Along the river

Features that stand out immediately when you arrive at the large camping site are the peacefulness, the tall trees and impressive bamboo plants. There is ample shade, the pitches are spacious and criss-cross the grounds. Between the river and the camping site is a wide footpath. There is hardly any demarcation and the surface is of grass. Rental accommodation such as mobile homes, chalets, tents and Pipo caravans (roulottes) is also available.

Basic swimming pool

There is a simple, rectangular swimming pool in which especially children will enjoy themselves and adults can cool off. There is also a separate toddler pool surrounded by sun loungers and sun umbrellas. It is for the most part in full sun, adjacent to the restaurant and the bar.

Crocodile farm

There is a playground, a trampoline and games room with TV for children. In high season there is entertainment for young and old: an extensive activity programme with theme meals, dance evenings, barbecues and sports tournaments. Water aerobics is offered three times a week. Canoe and kayak excursions are also organised from the camping site. Camping guests will receive a discount for a riding school and the nearby crocodile farm.

There is a small shop on the camping site for daily groceries. There is a modest restaurant with terrace. Take-away meals are possible.

Travelling party: Seniors

Camping vaste avec beaucoup d\'arbres (beaucoup de moustiques après pluie et assez boueux). Très agréable par temps chaud...ayant fait l\'expérience des deux climats... Les sanitaires sont neufs, les douches très grandes. Les lavabos individuels sont fermés hors-saison, saufs ceux près de l\'accueil. Près du centre ville, et beaux sentiers pour faire du vélo. Bon rapport qualité-prix.

Travelling party: Seniors

L’accueil est agréable et le patron est très sympathique et n’hésite pas à vous aider et à vous conseiller et d’ailleurs vous conduit à votre emplacement dès votre arrivée.
Les parcelles sont grandes, mais ne sont pas délimitées, herbeuses et très ombragées par les grands arbres.
Le camping est très calme et très bien situé pour les visites vers Vallon Pont d’Arc, les gorges, de beaux villages de France comme Aiguèze ou La Garde-Adhémar, sans oublier Nyons pour ses huiles d’olive ou sa Distillerie de Lavande.
Hors saison, seuls les sanitaires près de l’accueil sont ouverts, ils sont moyennement propres et un nettoyage journalier serait souhaitable.
La piscine est belle et le snack est ouvert surtout en fin de semaine.
Le supermarché a déménagé et se situe à environ 2 kms du camping.
Par contre l’activité pêche dans le bras mort du Rhône, qui se situe à proximité du camping, est difficilement accessible du fait des herbes géantes, dommage !

Un camping très verdoyant, implanté dans un grand parc aux nombreux arbres, où l'accueil est chaleureux. Le gérant accompagne les nouveaux jusqu'à leur emplacement et se montre très serviable. La proximité du Rhône et la pleine nature contribue à une ambiance reposante.. Nous y retournerons!

Nous avons choisi ce camping pour aller à la pêche, mais nous ne pensions pas pêcher autant de gentillesse. L'accueil dès notre arrivée, cordial et chaleureux des propriétaires, monsieur nous accompagne pour choisir un bon emplacement, bien plat pour mieux placer notre caravane, puis s’assure que le Wifi passe sur la place et nous donne encore quelques conseils pour s’assurer de notre bien-être. Quelques jours plus tard, nous avons un souci de freins avec notre voiture, nous avons été conseillé à merveille et très bien aider pour mener à bien les répartitions. Ce camping est agréable les places sont très spacieuses abritée du soleil par de nombreux arbres et quel enchantement que d'être bercer par le chant mélodieux des merles dès le levé du soleil. Les sanitaires parfaitement entretenus et largement assez d'eau chaude. Que dire d'autre, qu'un grand merci pour nous avoir rendu notre séjour très agréable, nous recommandons chaleureusement ce camping.
