General

  • Riverside setting 10 minutes' walk from the small town of Meyrueis
  • Near the Gorges du Tarn and Mont Aigoual
  • Pool, climbing wall, bar, snack bar, shop and barbecues

There's some stunning scenery around Camping Le Capelan in the Lozère region: its setting on the banks of the Jonte river has the Gorges de la Jonte and Gorges de la Dourbie to the west, Mont Aigoual to the south-east and the Gorges du Tarn to the north – four spectacular spots you'll very much want to see on a Languedoc-Roussillon hol.

Active types are well catered for around here, with walking, cycling and mountain bike routes all to hand from local town Meyrueis 10 minutes away, and fishing, rock climbing, canyoning, canoeing, rafting, horse riding and tennis all popular picks in the surroundings. Caves, medieval villages, animal parks and farms are within easy driving distance.

Guests of all types have loads to keep them entertained on site in between all the caving and sightseeing, including fishing in the river, a heated pool, a climbing wall, two playgrounds, a large multisports pitch, two pétanque courts, table tennis, table football and snooker. For food (and vino), there's a snack bar and a bar (with satellite TV), a grocery shop, and communal barbecues.

The amenities include two blocks with showers and toilets, or there are private bathrooms for sinking into soaks at the end of a long sightseeing day. The site also has a launderette with washing machines and tumble dryers.

    The pool was exceptional - my girls are still raving about it. The swing bridge and walk into the local ville. We really enjoyed our stay and just wish we had opted to stay for more than one night. This campsite will certainly stand out as a beautiful place with excellent customer service

Beautiful location but not suitable for young families07/14/2018

    The setting and scenery were amazing. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

    Disliked: 

    It was very over-priced for the facilities provided. It didn't suit young children as most of the pitches run alongside the river with no protective barrier and the playground facilities were very poor. There isn't any onsite entertainment and the campsite wasn't very busy so you had to drive to the nearest town or elsewhere to find your own entertainment or other people during the day (not usually too big a problem but because of the location the roads are very winding and full of dangerous hairpins). The pool is in a stunning location but was full of dead wasps floating on the top of the water. The owner wasn't particularly accommodating either. Finally, it was freezing at night time even in July so bear that in mind if booking a tent pitch.

Caves, climbing, canyoning and gorges are all within 15 kilometres, including Dargilan Cave five kilometres away, the Aven Armand cave system within eight kilometres, and the spectacular Gorges du Tarn within 15 kilometres, the castle-lined canyon running from Quézac to Le Rozier. The Gorges de la Jonte, less known but also spectacular, is within the same distance.

For les enfants, there's the Caussenarde Farm living museum 10 kilometres away, showing traditional farming in the south of France; the Randals Bison buffalo ranch, also within 10 kilometres, and the Vulture House bird park 12 kilometres away, to see some of the famed inhabitants of the Tarn and the Grand Causses Regional Natural Park.
