A promising site that really needs some TLC - toilets are \'dingy\' and lacking update - extremely dark, even during the day - lighting is not really adequate. There was warm water in showers but no where else
Pitches are good sized (not marked out) but not kept and grass very long. Reception friendly and helpful - did not use bar/restaurant so not able to comment

This campsite really was one of the most unpleasant and dare I say it, dangerous we have experienced in the many years we have been camping in France. First it was unpleasant due to the apparent uncaring attitude of the owners/staff toward the upkeep and cleanliness of the toilets (including a toilet with a broken seat), showers (no hot water here) and washing up (no hot water) facilities. The campsite was quite full, but about half of the toilets and showers (sanitaires) were locked up, many of those that were not were in a state of poor repair and unclean. Dangerous, because at night there was no outside lighting around the shower toilet area and we watched in horror a disabled lady trying to negotiate the rough path made up of loose boulders put together in a most haphazard manner. She would surely of had a serious fall if she had attempted it at night. The pitches were uneven with a steep slope on most of them. When we selected a pitch in front of the sanitaire we went back to the reception, the owner stated we couldn’t go there as our 7m motorhome was too big and would block the view from behind (i.e. the sanitaire), we disagreed with her and she finally allowed us to use the pitch. Like all the others, it was uneven and sloping badly and the grass was extremely long another indication that this site is not loved by the owners, but indicates they are only in this business it for the money and not prepared to carry out essential maintenance on a campsite that should be a pleasure to visit. They claim in the ACSI guide to have a “restaurant (with ample choice)” that is not really correct. What they have is a marquee with plastic tables and chairs selling pizzas and only pizzas! The WIFI for which I was given a code would not work on my laptop, phone or tablet. Most other guests experienced the same problem. When I complained, they offered no solution, just ridiculous and irrelevant suggestions. In the end we all gave up trying. There is however one bit of good news. We did see beavers, but not on the campsite, but 300m downstream from the campsite at dusk, about 9.00 in the evening, and at quite a distance (about 150m).

An exquisite location by the rushing waters of the Tarn; very peaceful with very little road noise despite the ease of access from Florac. We enjoyed a warm welcome and a convivial evening in the charming little bar- restaurant. The sanitaires are open in suitable proportion to the number of campers; showers are spacious with lots of hot water. There are delightful walks from the campsite: just follow the river either up- or down- stream. And we did see a beaver one quiet evening.

Great campsite on the banks of the Tarn. One of the best we\'ve stayed at. We are returning this year.

A beautiful location alongside the river. Very professional and friendly owner. Toilets old but very clean and adequate. Too bad the beaver was on holiday....maybe next time.

Super campsite, pitches right on river bank, beavers swimming past, good food, hilly (coming back!) bike ride into Florac. Wonderful situation.

Beautiful campsite beside the Tarn with friendly helpful staff. The site is quiet mid July. Lovely bar and restaurant overlooking the Tarn. Clear safe water for swimming. Toilet and shower block needs updating but is kept clean however I would think it could struggle in high season. We will be back to this beautiful site.

What a beautifully tranquil campsite in a truly breathtaking location just 3 miles from Florac. Nicole couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable. Our pitch was right on the Tarn and we had the choice of sun or shade (the weather was fabulous!). Good restaurant with riverside seating. Clean, spacious and functional sanitary facilities, old but in good decorative order. Excellent secluded wild swimming opportunities with a mile and on site too. Take the Stevenson Trail on a mountain bike to Florac on Thursday for the market and do the 'town tour'. We will return.

Facilities a little dated, but kept clean. Lady in charge more than helpful no matter what the problem.
Beautiful surroundings, well worth the very winding road that takes you there.

We have been travelling around Europe for over year and stayed in well over 50 campsites in 15 different countries; this is our favourite! It is in the most beautiful setting, we camped right next to the river and saw a beaver pass by the first night. It’s a 2 star and we learned that is how it will stay as to get 4 stars you need security fences etc. which would ruin the place, there was no fence between us and the river which is just how we like it. As well as the incredible natural beauty of the site and the wild swimming opportunities the owner, Nicole, is so lovely. She speaks perfect English (American) as well as German and French and has a great sense of humour and was so helpful with us giving us local knowledge regarding the most amazing rural beauty I think we have ever seen in the area around the George du Tarn. The facilities do what they need to do and are clean. This is a must visit site for nature lovers! The local town of Florac is fantastic too if you like your locals leftfield and hippified.
