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.
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.
