General

  • Peaceful six-hectare site a short drive from Lyon
  • Central lodge with TV, board games and books
  • Bar, seasonal restaurant, heated pool, solarium with deckchairs

Off to France's foodie capital? Loosen your belt and save your euros with a stay at this pretty site nearby: it's so lovely Lyon-centric that it's an info point for the city's tourist information centre.

The friendly and clued-up staff in reception can point you towards all the top things to see and do in this spectacular city (spoiler: there are many; spoiler two: food will be heavily involved), or you can use the free internet point to have a researchy gander for your own self; either way, you'll be able to access Lyon's many treats within a 20-minute drive.

Back, perhaps more heavily, at base, Camping Lyon has laid on enough to keep guests amused in between city day trips. If you're around in the warmer months, the heated pool is open from mid-April until the end of September; there is of course a paddling pool too for small sorts, and deckchairs and parasols are available free of charge in the adjoining solarium.

Indoors and open all season is the comfy central lodge, where you can lounge about to watch telly, have a coffee, play board games or settle down with a book to learn more about this lush region. Or hang out in the bar, open every day for beers and wine, or at the café-restaurant (open in July and August and during May/June bank holiday weekends) for drinks on the terrace or eats such as salads, homemade pizzas and grills.

Camping Lyon is set over six peaceful hectares, near the Rhône department commune of Dardilly (and, just so you know, within easy reach of the Beaujolais wine region and the Côtes du Rhône vineyards). It has a playground, ping pong tables and courts for volleyball and pétanque among its other leisure options, and toilets, showers and a laundry area with a washing machine among its amenities.

Order fresh bread and croissants at the bar to have pitchside the next morning – before another day of sightseeing and filling your boots just down the road in Lyon.

  • Liked: 

    Easy to find off the motorway. We used this site to stay for 1 night on our way back to England from the South. Staff were friendly, welcoming and spoke English. Bar and restaurant were nice. Games and TV area as well as Wifi in the bar area free of charge. This site is ideal if you're wanting to explore Lyon and stay for a couple of nights.

    Disliked: 

    Facilities weren't as clean as other sites we had stayed on. Difficult to give a full review of this site as we were only there for 1 night.

Good site. Used as stop off on way to south of France. Not 4* though 10/08/2016

  • Liked: 

    The ease of access to the motorway, the proximity of Auchan and reasonably priced fuel. Pitches were clearly marked and nice and wide.

    Disliked: 

    Most people use the toilet block under the reception / bar area. It's therefore pretty grim. The other toilet block (poorly signposted) doesn't seem to get much use and was lovely and clean, spacious and warm! Wireless so slow I couldn't use it. Strange considering the site location near a major city. Can't exactly blame poor connectivity to the internet!

Dyrast och sämst av alla campingar Lumpet och skitigt i campingplatsen 02/08/2016

    Dyrast och sämst av alla campingar vi vart på i Frankrike. Lumpet och skitigt på campingplatserna.
    Vi hade sett fram emot en välordnad och ren camping i Lyon eftersom campingen skulle vara fyrstjärnig. Kan säga att på campingplatsen syntes det inga stjärnor. Tvärt om . Rekommenderas inte

    We only stayed here as a stop over but found everything excellent. The reception staff spoke perfect English and were very efficient, the sanitary area's clean and well maintained & the text pitches level, shaded and clean.
    We didn't use the bar or restaurant but both looked very nice.

    Greeted by friendly staff who were very informative. The site was well signposted with the pitch being easy to find. The pitch was clean, level and had easy access to facilities. Limited options on the menu but the food was fantastic and with free access to wifi it made for a great stay.

    Disliked: 

    Bathroom facilities were crowded as the campsite was full but that was expected as we stayed during the Euro 2016 championships.

Local attractions

Quite rightly, much of Lyon makes up a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site for its culture and archaeological heritage spanning over two thousand years, since it was founded around 43 BC towards the last days of the Roman Republic.

The UNESCO-listed areas of the city cover the designated Historic Site of the Roman district and Fourvière, the Vieux Lyon Renaissance district, the silk district of Croix-Rousse), and the architecture of the 12th century and onwards at the Presqu'île, the centre of Lyon from the foot of Croix Rousse hill to where the Rhône and the Saône rivers meet.

Also take time to see some of Lyon's several museums and galleries, including the famed Musée des beaux-arts de Lyon or fine arts museum, one of the biggest art galleries in France (and a must-visit); the new science and anthropology museum Musée des Confluences; the Musée des Automates museum of puppets, and one of the biggest collections of textiles in the world (two and a half million works) at the Musée des Tissus et des Arts décoratifs.

Wine from Beaujolais, fish from Savoy lakes, fruit and veg from Drôme and Ardèche, frogs from the Dombes and charcuterie, cochonnailles lyonnaises and pâté from the Lyonnais mountains all go towards making up the varied and famed cuisine of the city, using influences from the Mediterranean area in France's south and the Alsace and Lorraine regions in the north: Lyon has over a thousand eateries for you to sample its cuisine at its best.

And if (when) you need to work it all off? Tennis courts are a few hundred metres from the site, golf is available within four kilometres, and horse riding within six.
