Much appreciated by families, the departure of the tourist train is at the entrance of the campsite and will take you to the beach of the water. You will be given a preferential rate (4 euros instead of 6 euros) thanks to the privilege pass that will be offered to you on arrival.

Ideal camping for fishing

Near the campsite, fishing enthusiasts can enjoy it. You will have direct access to the saône and many bodies of water nearby. Night carp fishing is possible from Lyon to Belleville on Saône.

  • The communal water body in Anse (1.5ha): Well-maintained, regularly stocked with pike, trout and roaches. It is frequented by both experienced fishermen and families wishing to spend a pleasant day at the water’s edge and fishing near the campsite. The water body of the Communaux will disappear to make way for the future marina of Lyon, river port of 350 rings on the Saône (horizon 2021/2022)
  • The water body from Chamalan to Treviso (3.5ha): Chamalan is a gravel pit near the Saône, the body of water is quite deep with a steep slope, except on the western tip. You will find carp, catfish, pike, catfish, roaches and bream.
  • The bordelan water body in Villefranche on Saône: On the water, fishing is allowed with two rods. Night fishing is prohibited all year round, as well as boat fishing. Brochets, sanders, perch, carp and catfish will delight fishermen.
  • New 2019: Aquapark Beluga on the Water Board of the Colombier. More information and rates here
