Located near the village of Saint-Romans in the French department of Isère, half-way between Grenoble and Valence, Camping Lac du Marandan lies in 55 acres of beautiful wooded countryside. Sitting 200m above sea level, it also offers wonderful views of the nearby Vercors Natural Park. The local area has much to offer including a wide range of outdoor, sporting and cultural activities and we will be delighted to act as your guides.
We aim to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere onsite in which you can spend your well-deserved holiday enjoying the natural environment and making friends. Get to know us and your fellow campers, taste some of our local specialties at our weekly apéritif sessions, Sunday mornings at 10.30am.
Holidays are a time to be with your children, especially the little ones. But once they reach five or so, you’ll find they want to get out and make friends. Our kids’ club is designed especially for them and offers a host of activities including colouring, crafts, dancing, organised play and nature walks, all taken in charge by our activity team. The club is open every day except Saturdays and Sundays. We also have a number of play facilities at the campsite and on the beach where children can play under the supervision of their parents, these include a trampoline, bouncy castle, and play area.
Offering a safe environment for young and old alike, our lakeside beach is staffed by a lifeguard daily in July and August. Onsite facilities include areas for table tennis, beach volleyball, tennis and pétanque, while a grocery store is also available onsite and there is free wifi at the reception area. With our snack bar and restaurant, you can choose food from a varied menu to enjoy on the terrace facing the lake. Bread and croissant delivery is available: simply order what you need the day before. Both the bread/croissant pre-order and the bar and restaurant are available weekends only in May and June and daily in July and August.
Our toilet and washing facilities are cleaned several times a day to ensure they are always spotless. Whether you’re waking up or winding down, there’s nothing like a good hot shower and our shower block provides all the hot and cold running water you could need! It is equipped with disabled facilities, a dedicated baby changing/ bathing room and children’s toilets. Washing machines and dryers are also available, for a small extra cost.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the south: take the A49 north and exit at Junction 8, taking the D532 east. At the roundabout with the D71 after leaving Saint-Just-de-Claix, take the second left and following that road, you will see the campsite on your left-hand side.
Use a free canoe to explore the lake or find a good spot for fishing. The lake is full of pike and carp as well as a number of smaller species including roach, gudgeon and smelt. A number of walks and trails start from the campsite or close by, otherwise we also have a mountain guide on hand to help take you a little further afield.
Once you’ve met a few of our local producers, craftsmen, restaurant owners and guides you’ll soon start to feel at home. Don't forget your rucksack but leave your cares behind instead and take one of the signposted walks and trails which leave from the site. Visit some of our local places of interest: a cheese-maker, a medieval village and some wonderful viewpoints. All routes are accessible by car, on foot or by bike.
We know and love our region and look forward to sharing it with you. So whether you’re looking for a small, friendly restaurant, a gourmet eating experience, the best shop for tasting and buying local specialities or the ideal hiking guide, we’ll be able to point you in the right direction. The best advice we’ll give you when you arrive is to leave the campsite and explore all the wonderful sights, sounds and tastes the region has to offer. Enjoy meeting local people, visit local fêtes and festivals, taste our local food and wines and marvel at the skills of our local craftsmen.
