General

  • Countryside site in a huge state forest
  • 55 kilometres from Paris and 30 kilometres from Versailles
  • Natural pool, fishing, sports areas and central lodge with restaurant

'The perfect place to go camping,' is the opinion of a former guest of Camping Rambouillet, a family and forest park within easy reach of Paris: potter along here for a hol to see if you agree. (And schedule in a hefty amount of time for Disneyland Paris and Parc Astérix if you're accompanied here by offspring, natch, or a large chunk for Paris sightseeing and occasional gazing romantically into your beloved's visage if you grownups are here on your own.)

Camping Rambouillet is 55 kilometres from Paris, or about an hour and 10 minutes on public transport from the closest bus stop 15 minutes' walk away. It's between fab Versailles (30 kilometres) and the cathedral city of Chartres, and is a few minutes' drive from the Yvelines department town Rambouillet and its famed 14th-century château.

Rambouillet's also a mighty popular place for its surrounding state forest, where this friendly well-equipped site is set. You can hike or bike the woodland trails from here, or (this is rather splendid), venture to the south of the forest on a nature spotting trip to meet a few of the resident Bennett's wallabies, who have lived among the trees here since breaking out of a nearby zoo in the 1970s.

Camping Rambouillet is a Huttopia site, so comes equipped with leisure options and plentiful facilities among its forest setting: it's next to a small lake so guests can go fishing; there are sports areas for ping pong, volleyball and pétanque, and live music events run in summer. The pool on site is natural and eco friendly – no chlorine here – and has plenty of room alongside for idle days sunbathing.

Food and drink are well covered too, at the central lodge with restaurant service; grocery corner and bread and pastries service: just let the staff know the night before what carby treats you want to await you in the morning.

Other facilities include a family communal area, a free internet point in reception, tourist info and barbecues and fridges for hire.

The showers are absolutely amazing, the best campsite showers ever! ... 07/09/2017

    The showers are absolutely amazing, the best campsite showers ever!
    Friendly staff.
    The natural swimming pool, water looks a bit green, but that is the intention.
    The site is close to Versailles and Paris so ideal for a base.
    There is a large restaurant on site serving very well priced meals.

    Disliked: 

    There had been a storm before we arrived that had washed a lot of soil over all the pitches which did not have much hardstanding on them anyway. It was therefore very muddy and not easy to get in the van without bringing some mud in. The site is in a forest of large, mature oak trees so everywhere is in shade, it is nearly impossible to get any sun. The roads are quite narrow as are the entrances to the pitches so it is not easy to get a large motorhome positioned.
    The site is a long way from the town and difficult to find. You will end up at the L'Oreal factory and think you have gone wrong somewhere, but you have to go half a mile past the factory down a narrow lane to find the site.
    No toilet seats or paper.

Lichte tegenvaller 11/08/2017

Reviewer's country: Netherlands B S. Confirmed

    Bosrijke omgeving

    Disliked: 

    Bij reservering was een plek van minimaal 10x10m=100m2 toegezegd, maar in de praktijk kregen we een plekje van ca. 7x8m=56m2, ongeveer de helft van het beloofde. Op de staplaats was geen gras meer, wat resulteerde in een grote modderboel toen het ging regenen. Het campingpersoneel verbrandde hun snoeiafval, waardoor de halve camping in de stinkende rook zat.

    Children liked the natural swimming pool. Lots of woodland walks which the dog loved!

    Disliked: 

    All local signs call this site Huttopia, or even Camping Lac d'Or- we drove many extra miles searching for Camping Rambouillet. Would be very useful if the site used one name!

    Well cared for and friendly environment.
    Lake and woodland walks.

    Shared electric hook-ups are quite a way from the pitches but easily resolved by staff who let me swap pitch so my line would reach.

    Not easy to find from directions unless you arrive on N10

Local attractions

Local town Rambouillet within 15 minutes' walk is best known for its spectacular medieval castle, originally a fortified 14th-century manor and later the summer residence of the Presidents of the French Republic from 1896 until 2009. Other townie options are the Musée Rambolitrain miniature train museum; the Palais du Roi de Rome, named as home to Napoleon's son way back when, and the Chaumière aux coquillages or shell cottage with its ornate décor.

Surrounding Rambouillet is the vast Rambouillet forest, spanning 70,000 hectares, and the two nature and activities areas of the Haute Vallée de Chevreuse Regional Natural Park and the Vexin Français Natural Regional Park. All three have walking paths to explore, wildlife (including those wallabies) to watch, and bike trails galore: the forest is home to 60 kilometres of bike and horse riding trails including the Véloscénie linking Paris to Mont Saint-Michel in Brittany.

Disneyland Paris and Parc Astérix are each about an hour and 20 minutes away.
