Camping Le Canoë

8.5

This campground/park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Quiet and shaded site on the Doubs river five minutes from Chaussin
  • Canoe/kayak hire and lessons available
  • Garden, playground, table tennis and bar

You can, of course, canoe around here. Camping Le Canoë is by the Doubs river, for days of drifting by canoe or kayak along this watery length on the French-Swiss border: if you're new to the art or don't know where best to start, the site team can sort you out with lessons and vessel rentals from its sister site.

You can fish from here too, or hire a bike to investigate the local countryside – armed with a packed lunch made for you by the Camping Le Canoë team on request. Elsewhere, it's a few minutes' drive to the town of Chaussin from your Jura department and Franche-Comté base, and about 50 minutes' drive to Dijon.

Hiking's a popular pick around these parts too, along with horse riding, biking and wildlife watching in France's second biggest woodland: the Chaux forest, 40 minutes' drive away. For more watery times, the spa town of Salins-les-Bains is within 45 minutes.

Camping Le Canoë is a green and spacious site, with a garden to laze around in after a session on the river. There's also a playground and table tennis to keep the kids occupied, while their keepers can sink a post-canoe drink at the on-site bar.

    Lovely site and great location with good facilities. Need your own toilet roll but the shop on site sells some if needed. Nice food available in the evening and a good supermarket 5 minutes away for extra supplies.

    Nice, well-spaced private pitch with lots of shade from trees. Very friendly staff with good English. The river was close with fast flowing, super clean water - made for good mini rapids for the teenagers! Lots of fun! There were water sports and pizza on offer but we didn’t have theses so can’t comment!

    Very reasonable price. Clean, quiet, lots of shade, we were happy with our one night stopover. Bought take-away pizzas from the bar with limited notice and they were cooked quickly. Sit on top kayak hire on site with trips organised too. Also paintball on site. Kids playground and table tennis.

    Disliked: 

    It does not have direct river access, that is across a small field. Just a tiny pebble beach here and an area that didn’t look like a safe place to swim etc. Best location was across a road bridge then lots of options. A little over 5 minutes walk.

Directions


Local attractions

When you're (mostly) done with canoeing, horse riding, fishing and riverside hiking, make for town and village days around the region such as those in Dole, 30 minutes' drive away, or Burgundy capital Dijon (around 50 minutes).

If you're still eager for active adventures, it's about 55 minutes from the site to Champagnole, a gateway town for treks and trips around the Jura lakes and mountains. More fishing and canoeing can be had at Jura's biggest natural lake Lac de Chalain, a short drive from Champagnole, or you can take the circular hike up to the Fontenu viewpoint for a look at the region's famed four lakes (see if you can see the remains of the 3,000-year-old stilt houses just below the lake's surface).

Also have a look at Arbois (35 minutes), for the Château Pécauld and pretty views of the Cuisance river passing through town, and at Beaune (45 minutes), the famed commune in the middle of the Burgundy winemaking region.
