General

  • Spectacularly scenic park with direct access to Lac de l'Oignin
  • Golf course and horse riding centre within a short drive or cycle
  • Hire pedal boats, floats and fishing kit to use on the lake

What a view to wake up to: right by the shores of Lac de l'Oignin among a mixed woodland and surrounded by smashing views of the hills all around, this highly scenic park lies 400 metres above sea level and is within 75 minutes’ drive from Geneva and its expansive lake.

As you might expect from a lakeside spot, heaps of watery fun is on the cards at Camping les Gorges d'Oignin, with not only two fab outdoor pools but direct access to the lake too for various water-based activities: hire a pedal boat to explore the shore; various floats to loll about on; or bits of fishing kit (and a fishing licence) to put your angling skills to the test.

Should the order of the hour instead be something terra firma-themed, that’s easily sorted here too: plenty of walking and cycling trails lie around the lake and its calm countryside surrounds, and sportif peeps can stay amply active with lots of facilities of that sort on site, with a football pitch, a volleyball court, ping pong tables and a pétanque court at their disposal daily.

There's heaps here to keep littlies out of trouble too: if they’re not bounding around the playground, they’l likely be spied hanging out with furry critters like goats, donkeys and horses at the petting zoo. Also for the amusement of small people aged between six and 12 years is a kids’ club, and in the evenings, guests of all ages can settle back for family-friendly fun in the form of dances, cabaret and karaoke.

Eats, drinks and supplies are at the snack bar and pizzeria with takeaway service, and at the shop with freshly baked bread and pastries, local produce and gas bottles. Barbecues are allowed, so fire one up, braise a few bangers and settle back to see the sun set over the lake from your smashingly scenic pitch.

Speaking of which, pitches are also splendidly spacious and all the hedging and mature trees that dot the site’s landscape provides guests with plenty of privacy. Sanitary amenities include chemical toilets and a heated toilet and shower block too, and the laundry area's washing machines and tumble dryers can be availed of for a small fee.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

A great site to walk/cycle and explore the local area for a few days. 19/09/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Shaun R. Confirmed

  • Fully-serviced gravel motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Spacious pitches to which we were given a choice (travelling in a motorhome). Close proximity to the lake where we could kayak or walk the dog with no issues. A couple of easy to follow local walks (8km and 11km) which were OK and there was a restaurant across the lake (also hot food on site which we did not use but served basic fare which has to be pre-booked). Fresh bread could be ordered daily for the following day. There is also a basic shop for the essentials and bar with a good selection of drinks. Very pleasant and helpful staff who kept the site very clean and the office was manned throughout the day with (from my experience) a multilingual speaker. The pool is a great addition although we only used it once over our few days due to the weather (September). Laundry facilities were adequate for us but may prove busy in a higher part of the season.

    Disliked: 

    Location is at the bottom of a steep hill (in a generally hilly area) so not for those with limited mobility options. The area is beautiful but stock your fridge beforehand if you don't have a car because of the remote location. Small point but no hand washing facilities in the actual toilets. There are sinks next door in the shower area but no soap is provided and by the time you've touched the 3 door handles to get to those sinks it seems pointless. The whole toilet/shower area is in need of a refresh as the space could be used so much better.

Directions


Local attractions

For those nuts about putting, a six-hole golf course course is within seven kilometres, or should you instead be of a rather more horsey leaning, an equestrian centre is within the same distance for trots around the site’s spectacular surrounds.

Bourg-en-Bresse is within 40 minutes’ drive for wanders around historic hotspots such as its 16th-century Gothic-style monastery, and over in Oyonnax are a couple of museums worth an explore: one dedicated to plastics and combs, and the other to the story of the French Resistance.

For pamper-based days, the handsome little spa town of Divonne-les-Bains – right near the France-Geneva border – is well worth a trip to for wellness treatments and scenic strolls or pedals around the perimeter of its three-kilometre lake.
