General

  • In the Dordogne with direct access to the Vézère river
  • Near ancient caves and UNESCO sites
  • Pool, library, takeaway and grocery shop

What a lush locale: family-friendly Camping La Rivière is in the Dordogne, in a wildlife haven with direct access to the Vézère river, with easy access to fishing, canoeing, mountain biking and horse riding – or just charging up one's batteries under the warm sun.

Or might you dig some ancient days instead? La Rivière's local town of Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil in the Périgord Noir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for many an old attraction, and the area as a whole has ancient sites galore, like the stalagmites and stalactite-filled cavern of the Grotte du Grand-Roc and the prehistoric paintings of the fab subterranean network making up the Lascaux Caves.

On-site facilities at La Rivière include a heated swimming pool and a paddling pool, a pétanque court, tennis and volleyball courts, ping pong tables, a library, a grocery shop, and free wifi in reception. Takeaway meals are available too.

Evening entertainment, kids' shows and rock-climbing excursions (this is rocky land) are organised in summer by the friendly site team.

    This was my 9 year old son's favourite campsite of the 6 we stayed at during our holiday. He loved the pool, the play area, that there were plenty of other children to play with, and particularly the donkeys in the field next door.

    We went canoeing on the river - got a 10% discount because staying at La Riviere. Great experience.

    The staff were very helpful - we were cycle touring, so limited access to food etc. Helpful that the restaurant/ snack bar opened in the mornings as well as the evenings.

    Good atmosphere, very friendly.

    Level pitch, plenty of shade.

    Nice clean site with good size pitches.

    Disliked: 

    Older shower block has very poor showers that stay on about a second after you let go the button. Was a bit miffed at the local beer bottles sold in the shop at €8 for about a pint. This beer looked flat in the glass and when I checked the bottle it was three yes three months out of date.

Directions


Local attractions

Several old castles like the Château de Castelnaud and the Château de Beynac dot the countryside of this part of France, along with colourful and comely little villages such as La Roque Gageac above the Dordogne river and one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France.

Smashing Bergerac should be near the top of any list of day tripping options for the region around Camping La Rivière, for a whole heap of things including its medieval streets, tasty tuck and famed wine. And its town museum, statue museum, tobacco museum and riverside wine house with exhibition on the history of wine growing…

Deeply recommended are the caves and Paleolithic paintings of Lascaux Caves, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You'll likely also dig the Grotte du Grand Roc/Cave of the Big Rock, and the National Prehistory Museum, both back in town at Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil.
