This, declares the Camping La Digue team, is a place where you can follow your fancies. And how: this peaceful and friendly riverside site is within ridiculously easy reach of outdoor activities of all flavours – whichever you pick, the knowledgeable team can not only point you in the right direction, but book many of these sporty activities right on site.
First of all, you should probably head off for a day of hiking. (Or walking, if you're more of an ambler than a striding-forth sort.) Then, the adventurously inclined can go off a-clambering along hundreds of local climbing routes, or have a foamy time canyoning along the Chassesac gorges, or test their mettle on the via ferrata of the Pont du Diable, before a trip to the prehistoric and tourist centre of Vallon Pont d’Arc, easily reached within 40 minutes' drive.
Your base to stagger back to after all these outdoorsy days is in splendid surrounds on the banks of the Ardèche, a few minutes' drive from Chauzon between Aubenas and Ruoms. The highly handsome three-hectare park is run by Fabienne and her team, who welcome guests of all ages to pitch up in greenery among the trees and soak up the sun on the riverbank.
Facilities and amenities are of tiptop quality (have a look at the pics, s'il vous plait) and include a pool, a pétanque court, a TV room and a tennis court. Fishing is available in the river waters straight from the grounds, walking and cycling paths start from the site, and you can hire a canoe to drift along the water. Et les enfants? They have a kids' club and a spacious play area to keep them entertained.
If you can't bring yourself to sort eats and drinks while you're here, more scenic setting and amiable atmosphere is at the site restaurant, which serves breakfast and dinner, and at the bar and snack bar for drinks and light bites. A hotel bar-restaurant is in nearby Chauzon.

Travelling from Lyon, take the exit signposted Nord Montélimar and continue towards Le Teil - Lavilledieu - Ruoms. Past Pradon take the right towards Chauzon and follow signs to the campsite.
Please note, caravans and motorhomes are not allowed into Chauzon village centre.
Climbers rejoice: you and your heady sense of adventure can indulge in the many routes around the Cirque de Gens, the famed – and spectacularly scenic limestone rock formation that makes up one of the biggest climbing sites in the Ardèche. Ask the Digue team for their recommendations on the best crags to clamber, or book a guided climbing trip via the site team.
The Gens have around 300 routes of all levels for you to pick from; nearby, more climbing can be accessed at Viel d'Audon and at Balazuc. If you're feeling fully brave (and have a head for heights), the nearby via ferrata of the Pont du Diable will provide a hair-raising adventure you'll remember until you're old and grey: you should certainly boast about it for years to come.
Walking and cycling trails leave from the site and several more walking trails are within easy reach. Quiz the Digue team at reception for top tips on the best routes, or seek info on nearby treetop adventuring, caving, canoeing, and canyoning in the gorges of Chassesac.
Vallon-Pont-d'Arc, the departure point for canoeing and kayaking trips into the Gorges de l'Ardèche, is just under half an hour's drive from the site.
