"Small fine affordable campsite just before Lyon just next to the water. Great place for temporary overnight stay in tent or longer stay with motorhome. Sanitary facilities are fine and food in the restaurant was tasty. Volunteers and staff were friendly and spoke both Dutch and French. In the evening, we had a cosy campfire with camping guests, volunteers and staff. All in all, a great place for our group and we will certainly return one day.." - M. Mochel
