Might you care to make this your domain when parking your holidaying self around the Loire valley? The reasons they are aplenty: Camping Domaine de la Rive du Bois is among the vineyards, cycling trails and châteaux of said valley, 15 minutes' drive from the waters and beach of Étang de la Vallée – but only a 45-minute drive from sightseeing options in Orléans and just under a couple of hours' drive from Paris.
Based a couple of minutes' drive from the Loiret department town of Chambon-la-Forêt, Camping Domaine de la Rive du Bois is on the edge of the protected region of Orléans Forest, the biggest national forest in France. As you might reckon, it's a cinch to sort woodland hikes and bike rides from here, along the loads of walking and cycle trails of the forest's 35,000 hectares. Another fab forest, Fontainebleau (France's third biggest, foliage fans) is within 45 minutes.
The site has stacks of space for kids to whizz about, both around the grounds and at the sizeable play area among the trees. Kids can venture around this wooded setting on two wheels too, or paddle in the Rive du Bois pond while their grownups try their hand at on-site fishing.
Other leisure options include an outdoor pool, miniature golf and archery, along with tennis courts, basketball and a games room with seating and table football. Fishing and golf are both available nearby.
A restaurant, bakery, butcher, deli and grocery shop are all within easy reach.
Tourist board rating
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Many parks set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per site, 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 sites.
However, where the campsite or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple sites or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be located 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.

Plunge right into the vast expanse of forest for hiking and biking trails to keep you roaming for weeks; make for swimming, fishing, canoeing and beach basking at the nearby Étang de la Vallée, or access treks on four hooves via horse riding from Ouzouer-sur-Loire 40 minutes away.
Towns and cities are within easy reach too: start off at Bellegarde (20 minutes), to see its castle and Notre Dame church, then stroll along the pretty cobbled streets for a good selection of cafés, bars and restaurants. Saint-Benoit-sur-Loire (35 minutes) is famed for Fleury Abbey, founded in the eighth century and now one of the best-known Benedictine monasteries in western Europe. And then onto Orléans, for its 17th-century Gothic cathedral, arts museum and Joan of Arc House.
After your historic Orléans sightseeing, pootle around the city parks for a more restful hour or two: there's the Parc Louis-Pasteur, with boat pond, steam train rides and puppet theatre; the botanical setting ofJardin des Plantes, and the splendid Parc Floral de la Source, to the south of the Loire.
