from 8 reviews Write review

Camping des Lacs is situated in Saint-Jean-de-Chevelu (Rhône-Alpes), a village in the green east of France. Tourism here is mainly about fun in the water. You will be camping at the two lakes of Saint-Jean-de-Chevelu, and the river Méline will be flowing past. There are also several lakes close to your camping pitch, including the gigantic Lac du Bourget (3 km), Lac d'Aiguebelette (20 km) or the very popular Lac d'Annecy (50 km). You won't be bored on dry land either. In the high season, the campsite has a great entertainment and excursion programme.

Spacious campsite

The grounds of Camping des Lacs are large and mainly consist of grassland with many trees. With nearly a hundred pitches for campers, you're in an average-size campsite here. But what is definitely not average is the size of the pitches. At 100-150 m2, they are definitely spacious! Trees and hedges near your pitch provide the necessary shade and privacy. From your pitch, you can look out over the green hills that surround the campsite. Are you coming without your own camping equipment? Then you can stay in one of the mobile homes, lodge tents or hiker's huts. They come in several comfort levels.

Fun in the water

The fact that there is no swimming pool on the campsite proper isn't a problem at all. You just jump into the adjacent swimming lake. The bank consists of sand and grass. Children can also play in the shallow Méline river. If you get hungry, you can get something at the snack bar. A supermarket can be found in Yenne, a town about six kilometres away.

Richard, on this campsite in July 2019

7.0

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

One toilet block on site. 3 cubicles for over a hundred pitches (mens) which were ALWAYS filthy. Spider ran riot on the doorways and walls meaning my children would for the first time in years choose to wet themselves than go to the loo. Staff did nothing despite repeated requests for cleanliness. Washing facilities are dark and the floor soaked and dangerously slippery. Staffs answer was \"someone took the mop, some weeks ago\"...Well how about replacing it? When we left we said we were disappointed and was greeted with a \"well we are fully booked, so what does that matter\".
The lake IS NOT private for the campsite. It gets VERY busy and overcrowded. Other than that...Its a beautiful site in a beautiful setting. Its a crying shame our experience was marred somewhat.

Travelling party: Couple

We extended our original three-night stay to five nights as we enjoyed this site so much. The toilet block and whole site were impeccably maintained. The atmosphere encouraged by the owners was friendly and relaxed. We requested a pitch next to the stream which was ideal for our dog who managed to keep cool all day. The adjacent lake was warm, clean and perfect for swimming (the dog was allowed to do so after 7.30 p.m. which was great. Pleasant walks close by and short drives will take you to Mont Chat for stunning views, and Chanaz to hire electric boats to take a trip on the canal and lake. We will definitely return.
