In southeast France, in the Écrins massif, lies the cosy family campsite of Camping Au Valbonheur. You camp here in a very natural environment, so it almost feels like you are camping in the wild. With swimming lake and private beach and sport opportunities. The camping is situated at the foot of the French Alps. From the highway it is approximately 45 minutes' drive through a green and mountainous region. You will be welcomed with a smile by the owners and employees. The proprietor has owned this campsite since 2015 and does his utmost to make this a real quality campsite.

Special camping between the trees

You will find spacious pitches for your caravan, camper or tent amidst trees, brooks and greenery. The generous pitches ensure a peaceful holiday. In addition, Camping Au Valbonheur offers very special accommodation to stay in. For instance, tepee tents, huts on stilts and igloo huts. You can also spend the night in a chalet or mobile home for a slightly more luxurious feel. This campsite is mainly frequented by families with young children.

Own beach

Camping Au Valbonheur is situated alongside a small lake with private beach with loungers for camping guests. This lake is suitable for swimming, kayaking and canoeing. On the beach you can have a game of volleyball. Children will love the soccer field and the inflatable bouncers.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - Le site est magnifique, il offre la possibilités d allier randonnées et baignade, et convient à tous les ages. Les équipements sont eleg0ats et ne nuisent pas à la beauté du site. le camping est calme fréquenté par des personnes respectueuses les uns des autres. Le restaurant du camping est sympathique et les pizzas tres bonnes.
Disliked - Il n'y a rien que je n'ai pas aimé. J'aurais apprécié quelques propositions d'activités collectives pour ma fille âgée de 13 ans qui aurait favotise qu'elle se fasse des camarades de jeux. Le lieu se prête à des jeux collectifs ou de société. Peut être que les conditions sanitaires actuelles ne s'y prêtaient pas.

Maggie M, on this campsite in September 2021


Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Liked - We stayed in the camping for one night. It's the first time we gave a try to the camping, and, it was a night of thunder and heavy rains. Despite the weather, we felt welcome in the place andwere happy with the experience. There are some activities for the kids and the foods sold on the site taste good and priced reasonable. The environment is very green.
Disliked - A neighbor made a lot of noise until morning (like 2:00am). Due to the weather, it's not convenient for us to communicate about the bad behaviour. The same neighbor told us to keep quiet in the morning 8:30 because they have the right to rest :)
Often need to queue for toilet which is not always clean.

ANNEMIEKE - Vijfhuizen, on this campsite in August 2019


Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - This is already for 35 years our favorite place to go in the summer, the big Lake, small river & big river make it complete for every Age. Lots of kids in different ages and the environment challenges to play “old school”. Leave your phones at home & enjoy nature and beautiful hikings. Highly recommended paradise.
Disliked - The bread is not very crunchy. I prefer fresh bakery in La Mure or Entraigues.
The cabin we stayed in is super basic, we like it that way. Bed (couch) could be a bit better. Somehow the kids didn’t manage to do a lot of activities, maybe the times just didn’t fit our schedule. It is a great way to meet other kids. Best way still is the big football field.
