Camping avec piscine chauffée

General

  • Friendly and relaxed site on the banks of the Saône river
  • A 14-kilometre towpath along the river right outside the site
  • Waterpark with slides, plus bike and fishing kit hire

Riverside or waterpark? Both are at one’s disposal here at Camping Kanôpée Village, a well-appointed park on the banks of the Saône river in the splendidly scenic Ain department.

Lots of water-based tomfoolery can be had at the site's lifeguarded outdoor pool and waterpark, with a bank of big waterslides for slip sliding and splashing down, should that so tickle one’s fancy. A huge lush and shaded grassy area lies alongside too, so in the event grownups might prefer to laze around out of the water with a good on-hol blockbuster, they can also keep half an eye on their offsprings’ splashtime while they’re at it. Guests have free access to the pool and waterpark from Monday to Saturday during July and August (surcharges apply on Sundays and public holidays), accessible through gate that’s open between 10am and 7pm. As is the case at many a French pool, male swimmers are required wear speedo-style swimming togs, as board shorts aren’t permitted in the water around here.

When they’re not swimming and bombing around in the water, you’ll probably find the kids clambering around the playground or playing rounds of ping pong; also splendidly, in July and August the park’s lively entertainment team run a daily program of activities for junior guests such as arts and crafts, treasure hunts and sports tournaments to keep them amply entertained – and, of course, adults amply relaxed.

Speaking of which, other on-site facilities for grownups to fill their leisure time with come in the form of a pétanque pitch plus entertainment such as bingo nights and weekly themed evenings during high season, and if you’re a fishing fan, grab yourself a licence (and hire some basic fishing kit if you haven’t brought your own) from reception and set yourself up on the banks of the Saône – catfish are abundant in the waters here, with some hauls having measured a mighty two metres. If fishing’s not your thing – or you ever tire of all the fun watery stuff to do on site – you can also hire a bike to live it up local-style and tour the côté Saône à vélo.

Having worked up an appetite – and a sweat – at the waterpark or on the bike and want to freshen up before dinner, you can do so at one of three well-maintained sanitary blocks across the site. If you’re an avid email checker, then the site’s wifi service will see to it that your inbox remains in good order.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 07/01 and 08/31 (subject to weather conditions).

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Overpriced for facilities.08/09/2020

    Size of pitches, location to town and river.

    Disliked: 

    Advertisement on the internet and pitchup up says water park and pool on site. Due to Covid the water park was closed and the pool is 5k away at another busy campsite. We did go to the pool but it was far too busy to swim. Given the reduced facilities which was our main reason for going we felt that there should have been a reduction in the already quite expensive pitch fee. It would have been good if website and pitchup had updated page and campsite emailed us to let us know about lack of facilities and we may have looked elsewhere.

    Easy to book and staff very helpful when we arrived. Facilities are clean and tidy and so is the campsite in general. This was our second time camping here and were greatly surprised to see that there was a market next to the campsite along the river and enjoyed our afternoon strolling around.

    This place is the best. We really enjoyed our whole week camping. It's based in a lovely area, that we explored, enjoyed our evenings by the river, and our days in the waterpark. As can expected with any camping place next to the river in warm weather there are insects, but with a bit of repellent, you good to go!

Hello,
The tranquility of the edge of Saone is very much appreciated.
Unfortunately we do not have a restaurant here. But to eat you have the food truck pizza right in front of the campsite and some restaurants in town (10 minutes on foot).

Directions


Local attractions

The Saône river is a tremendously popular spot for anglers, and guests can procure themselves a fishing pass – as well as hire basic kit – from reception. For golfing gurus, an 18-hole golf course around 10 minutes’ drive away or, if you’re feeling super sportiv, a 25-minute bike ride from Kanôpée Village. If you fancy changing up your waterpark scenery, another lies over in Trévoux, a couple of kilometres away among a greenly scenic setting.

Pedally peeps will be pleased to learn that a 14-kilometre towpath lies right in front of the site and links Saint-Bernard to Massieux, eight kilometres away, and then on to Lyon and all the way up to Mâcon, 53 kilometres away, should you feel so inclined. Alternatively, if you’re more into your jumps and dirt trails, you can pedal (or drive) over to the Dombes plateau, 23 kilometres from base, to traverse the 16 mountain bike circuit that crisscross it. Two hiking trails are marked out here too if you’d rather take a slower approach.

For a city-based jaunt, fab UNESCO-listed Lyon and its many historical hotspots are around 40 minutes’ drive away, or about 80 minutes on a bike along the Saône if you’re feeling particularly energetic. Stick around to wander the streets and sample the city’s famed Lyonais gastronomy in between exploring sights such as the museum of fine arts, the spectacular hilltop church and museum of Fourvière, and 14th-century cathedral.
