The Best Campsites in Rhône-Alpes
Rhône-Alpes is a land of contrasts. Big cities (Lyon and its four districts registered with UNESCO, Saint-Etienne, Grenoble), hills and colorful countryside, magnificent rivers which meander in the middle of nature but also steep peaks and high mountains that make skiers happy.
The Alpine departments – Isère, Savoie, Haute-Savoie – are full of campsites to enjoy the great outdoors, mountain lakes, and fantastic panoramas of the region.
Ain and the capital Bourg-en-Bresse delight campers who love history, thanks to monuments and exceptional sites such as Bibracte, the most significant archaeological site in France, nestled on Mont Beuvray.
The Ardèche is dotted with campsites to discover its caves (including Aven d’Orgnac), its magnificent gorges for swimmers, kayak lovers, unspoiled nature and breathtaking landscapes, or even its medieval villages (Balazuc, Saint-Montan, Joyeuse).
Neither is the neighboring Drôme lacking in attractions and campsites, with its picturesque villages in the Vercors and its Provencal side populated with lavender fields of vibrant colors.
Nibble on nougat from Montelimar, try tasty local cheese like Tomme and Reblochon washed down with regional wines including Côtes du Rhône and Beaujolais. History, nature, gastronomy: the Rhône-Alpes has everything, which makes it a privileged destination for campers.
