General

  • Lakeside site a few kilometres from Foix, the Ariège's main town
  • Fishing, boating, rafting and treetop adventure park
  • Pool and paddling pool with bar and sunloungers alongside

Open your eyes, yawn, stretch and ponder your mood of the morning when you awake at Camping du Lac near Foix in the Ariège department of south-west France. Are you feeling adventurous? Then gulp down breakfast, down your coffee and get out into the open for long adrenalised hours around this lakeside site. (Do, however, remember to get dressed first...)

An early adventurous option should be kayaking or rafting on the lake to see how far you can get from the shore; if watery antics aren't your thing, make your way up high to the site's treetop adventure course to check out your balance among the leaves. In the area, canyoning and hiking are around too, as is trekking around the Artigue waterfalls or – for the truly intrepid, hang gliding above the spectacular landscapes of the Pyrenées Ariégoises Regional Nature Park.

Non, non and un big fat non? Peeps of a more placid persuasion have plenty of pursuits here too: the lake is a splendid spot for fishing and paddling, and the site has its own nicely-sized pool if you prefer even gentler waters in which to dip your toes. You may become a tad thirsty after your paddle or dip if you're then spending some time lounging on the sunbeds: how handy, then, to have the bar right by the pool.

Kids also have active or more low-key activities to choose from, as the summer club (from 3-6pm in July and August) has sports activities and circus sessions for the more energetic, as well as theatre, painting and crafts to pass the time more peacefully.

Camping du Lac is a green and peaceful site, about five kilometres from the train station at Foix. The town market on Friday mornings is your go-to destination for local produce; during the week, the restaurant team are on hand with bread and pastries from 7am, and meals, wine and beer in the evenings.

Weekly themed dinners are held at the restaurant too, part of a lively programme of summer entertainment that includes theatre, music, dances and sports tournaments – take your pick according to how adventurous you feel on any particular sunny day.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 15/06 and 15/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Un excelente lugar donde pasar las vacaciones 24/07/2017

Reviewer's country: Spain Cristina B. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • 2 bedroom static caravan (XL)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    El camping es fantástico. Está cerca del supermercado donde puedes comprar de todo. También está cerca de lugares de interés turístico. Y lo mejor de todo ha estado la cercanía del lago donde los niños han podido disfrutar del encanto de los patos y ocas.
    Las parcelas son amplias y los niños pueden jugar sin ningún peligro.
    La piscina tiene buena temperatura y podíamos hacer un baño ideal para redondear un día de turismo.
    Los lavabos están muy limpios y muy bien acondicionados.
    Sin duda, el camping du lac nos ha dejado un muy buen sabor de boca.

    Disliked: 

    No nos gustó la entrada a la piscina que tienes que pasar por un agua estancada para limpiar los pies.
    No hablan español y nos cobraron dos veces la tasa turística. La primera no nos dieron tíquet.

    Site clean and tidy. Good pitches. Nice swimming pool. It was closed when we arrived.

    Disliked: 

    Expected site to be quiet. It was not, there is a busy road at the side. Unable to
    Sleep at night.
    The toilet block clean and tidy. But the showere wher just tepid to nearly cold.
    When you have been travelling you need a good hot shower.

    Did not stay as long as planned because of traffic noise and cold showers

Directions


Local attractions

Hang gliding, canoeing, kayaking, rafting, canyoning, hiking, horse riding and exploring the local lakes, mountains and forests… all are around the region for adventurous sorts.

Many peaceful days are within easy reach too, like investigating the deep history of the Ariège region at the Parc de la Prehistoire de Tarascon-sur-Ariege prehistory museum 15 minutes' south: a splendid centre that should entertain even certified non-history types with its huge range of sights and activities including workshops, games, displays and events all based around the ancestral people who once lived in the famed Niaux Cave. (Visit the cave too, for a torchlight trip underground among extensive galleries of prehistoric wall paintings, along the cavern's 18-kilometre length.)

The town of Foix a few kilometres away is home to a 12th-century castle and a medieval Old Town as well as the serene botanical garden of Les Épines de Lespinet, with Mediterranean vegetation, banana plants and many spiky cacti.
