General

  • Dog-friendly site in Vaud, three kilometres from the Vallorbe Caves
  • A 10-minute drive from Lake Brenet and 25 minutes to Yverdon-les-Bains
  • Refreshment bar, swimming pool, playground and pétanque court on site

Hunt down minerals and chase an underground river through limestone caves… and then re-emerge into a pleasant green escape at Camping de Vallorbe. Three kilometres from the Vallorbe Caves, this dog-friendly site is a five-minute drive from the caves' underground lake. And at the same time, it has lovely views of the surrounding mountains in Vaud and the lakeside beaches of Yverdon-les-Bains are 25 minutes' drive away.

Climb the surrounding summits (there are three mountains within 45 minutes’ drive of the site), go for a swim in Lake Brenet (10 minutes' drive) or sail out onto Lake Joux (15 minutes). No matter how far you go, you can always continue the activity on the site too. Cultivate some competitive spirit with a game of pétanque or see who can do the most laps around the heated outdoor swimming pool.

When you're ready for a rest, there are lots of pleasant places to unwind around the site, including a refreshment bar, outdoor playground (if the kids are still lively) and patches of greenery where you can lay back and take in the mountain views.

Conveniently, there are several food shops, restaurants, cafés and bars within walking distance of the site, plus a water point too, including riverside eateries if you fancy a sweet water view. You’ll also feel nicely connected to other local towns, as the town has a train station 10 minutes’ walk away.

Run down, grubby, basic - ideal if you don’t want to feel safe05/11/2021

    Proximity to the river

    Disliked: 

    As a female traveller I worked hard to find a location to stay whilst my husband was away that would make me feel safe. I never actually stayed here in the end as the site was run down, felt rough, had a lack of security and generally felt unsafe not what I needed.
    Caravans looked like they had been pitched there for 15 years and parts of the ‘facilities’ were in grubby tents. We had a group of young men staring at our campervan from the entrance and with no proper barrier other than a make shift flimsy wooden one, I felt like the van was getting too much attention. The toilets were locked and when I tried to check in I was sent on a mission to try and find out how to actually do that, check out signs said to go to the swimming pool which was closed, I rang the contact number instead, they sent me to the ice rink (not a great place to check in anyway in the middle of a busy match) finally I found someone at the rink who told me with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth he would sort it later. Poor experience, I wouldn’t have even stayed here if I wasn’t on my own.

From the manager...

Bonjour,
Nous sommes fort surpris de votre commentaire.
En effet notre collègue habite sur le camping avec son chien de garde et fait des rondes régulières.
En ce qui concerne l'accueil ,effectivement en dehors des heures d'ouvertures nous accueillons nos campeurs à la patinoire qui est juste en face du camping, nous estimons que c'est une facilité supplémentaire pour nos campeurs qui bénéficie du coup d'une plage horaire de 8h30 à 21h, pour de la basse saison c'est plutôt large.
Les sanitaires du haut sont fermés car les travaux vont bientôt débuter, en revanche vous avez accès aux sanitaires du bas qui sont chauffés et entièrement rénové.
De part tous ses éléments nous ne comprenons vraiment pas votre ressenti, ni vos reproches sur nos installations.
Nous sommes cependant navré que vous n'ayez pas apprécié votre séjour.
Cordialement
Aurelie

Great campsite - all of the staff were so friendly …15/08/2021

    Great campsite - all of the staff were so friendly and helpful throughout. Good pitch size (electric access is not all standard camping hookup, some is Swiss plugs). A quick walk to the town centre and the local grocery shops. Plenty of local attractions within short driving distance (the bear park, the grottes, the Dent de Vaulion viewpoint and others). Good showers in the pink house, and plenty of facilities. The pool next door looked great and you had free access to it whilst staying. Staff came round to take a bread order and delivered it the next morning, and one staff member went out of his way to help us sort out electric access by lending us an adaptor.

    Disliked: 

    Noisy on our final night, but this might have been due to a local event.

On balance a great little site!15/08/2021

    Relaxed atmosphere, pool next door (with entry included) is perfect for little ones with a big, clean paddling pool, toys, and on the days we were there a bouncy castle too. Also the short walk into little town to a restaurant.

    Disliked: 

    Facilities are old, but it’s just a small campsite and they were functional so for a short stop it was fine for us.

Local attractions

No need to go too far… take a tour around the iron and railway museum at Musée du Fer et du Chemin de Fer (five minutes’ walk), which has forges for kids to play in and a miniature train. Juraparc (five minutes’ drive) is also close by. This large animal park is home to wolves, bears and bison or softer animals such as goats and alpacas that the kids can interact with.

Mountains galore… the area is full of huge bumps and ridges in the land, several of which are great for hiking, climbing or mountain biking. Dent de Vaulion (15 minutes) is the closest mountain to the site, while the peaks at Le Suchet (half an hour), Aiguilles de Baulmes (35 minutes) and Mont Tendre (45 minutes) are also within reach.

Feel rather like you’re defending the mountain pass at the Pré-Giroud Military Fort (10 minutes’ drive), now a heritage building you can walk around.

If you’re looking for more great hiking trails, La Tine de Conflens (20 minutes) has a path to a rocky waterfall. When you feel like a more leisurely stroll, the lakeside town of Yverdon-les-Bains (25 minutes) has beaches and the medieval Grandson Castle (half an hour).
