Outdoor pool

General

  • On the banks of the Ain river, with easy access to river beaches
  • Around 40 minutes' drive from France's foodie capital Lyon
  • Fishing, canoeing and horse riding excursions in season

Visits to France’s foodie capital, horseback adventures, canoe trips down the Ain and learning the fishing secrets of the local lands are all possible for peeps pitching here, for this rural retreat is five minutes’ drive minutes from the A42 Meximieux-Pérouges motorway exit, 40 minutes from Lyon, and within easy walking distance of several local tour operators.

A peaceful and shaded park, Camping Les Plages de L'Ain is a quiet spot on the banks of the Ain, with direct access to the river for swimming, fishing and canoeing. Fishing is organised each week in high season and knowledgeable staff can point you in the direction of all the secret local hotspots; the site also organises three-hour canoeing trips along the Ain for guests during July and August, and a tour organiser in the village runs excursions too.

Away from the water, an equestrian centre is nearby, with introductory sessions, guided walks and scenic horseback hacks available during high season. Or stay on site instead for games at the pétanque court and two ping pong tables while the kids get stuck into outdoor games around the playground and the park grounds. An outdoor pool is also on site.

Les Plages de L'Ain has a restaurant, with evening entertainment in high season. Off site, the nearest supermarket is a 20-minute walk away in the local village of Saint-Maurice-de-Gourdans.

The pitches are great; flat and spacious.09/16/2019

    Sadly, we arrived the day the pool, bar and restaurant closed. It would have been polite of the management to let us know at the time of booking, so we could've planned better (i.e. visited a supermarket or booked elsewhere for example). This campsite is quite remote. The river itself had green slimy water and was too cold to venture into. The manager was quite glum. There were some workers staying on the site in cottages. One evening they broke into a terribly noisy fracas and no-one from the management cared to tell them to rein it in. Not good, with children about.

    For 3 stars the place really delivered. Great double bedroom static with lovely terrace. Nice pools and decent restaurant. Our toddler loved the chicken hutch on site and the river close by was a delight.

    Unfortunately it rained for a 2 of the four days, but it didn't ruin our stay too much as the site is only 30 mins into the centre of Lyon which was great and 20 mins to the amazing town of Peruges. Both worthy of a visit irrespective of the weather.

    Would definitely come back and try and get friends to take some of the homes around us and make it a little village on site.

From the manager...

Dommage que nos efforts pour rectifier votre erreur de réservation se traduisent par une évaluation sévère !!! J'ai bien compris à l'arrivée de votre séjour, qu'il y avait un problème sur le type de logement réservé. Nous vous avons trouvé un logement avec 2 chambres pour réctifier l'erreur sur la typologie...qui initialement était un grand lit double. Difficile de faire dormir votre époux et son collègue dans un lit double.
Je vois que notre réactivité à trouver une solution à l'erreur n'a pas été partagée.
Je vous invite désormais à nous joindre avant de réserver.

Directions


Local attractions

Horse riding, fishing and canoeing are all right outside Camping Les Plages de L'Ain; in season, the site works independently and with local tour operators to organise trips involving all the above, and out of season it’s easy for guests to organise their own.

After Lyon, the medieval walled town of Pérouges should be next on your sightseeing ticklist: it's so handsome that it's acclaimed as one of France’s most spectacular old settlements. Also worth a look is the medieval riverside town of Châtillon-sur-Chalaronne, on the banks of a river 45 minutes’ drive from base.

Half an hour away by car is Parc aux Oiseaux: head over here to see over 3,000 birds across 300 different species among 35 hectares of landscaped parkland.
