Other services include disabled facilities, a WiFi hotspot zone, laundry room, snack bar, fridge available to use completely free, and a fresh bread service in high season.
There is direct access to the river from the campsite and this is ideal for kayaking in the spring, however, even if you do not own your own canoe or kayaking equipment then there is a centre that also does rafting only 5km away. This is also one of the French campsites with trout fishing available on the river in the summer season along with it being suitable for swimming, plus on site there is tables tennis and boules. A social come common room with games and books is available, which means you could also take advantage of a lazy afternoon in one of the many hammocks dotted around amongst the trees.
