We have 25 pitches set on three levels with lake views, in an area of quiet, tranquil, natural beauty of mixed woodland and bordering Barrage des Combes; a 50 hectare lake, perfect for kayaking, canoeing, rowing and windsurfing. (bring your own craft).
Pitches range from maximum 11m x 19m, minimum 7m x 10m. Electric hook-ups with French connection - 10A. Some pitches may require long leads. Please advise if your unit is over 6m long.
Excellent fishing. Lake often used for competitions. Fish include huge carp,(common and mirror) roach, rudd, bream,pike, perch. Fishing is permitted with a licence; available online or Felletin. Electric engines only allowed on the lake.
Swimming is not permitted (EDF own the lake and set the rules).
There are many marked walks from the campsite to the surrounding area. Taking in the local villages and places of interest. A trek into the campsite woodland will find you at a waterfall which cascades; not so much when there's been no rain, into what seems like an enchanted inlet. Apparently fairies live there! When the water is not flowing a lot it is good for climbing!
Many birds and animals make their homes on the campsite and can be seen from time to time; red squirrels, pine martens and across the lake wild boar and deer. Buzzards of various colours grace the skies with their calls, tree creepers, nuthatch, greater and lesser spotted woodpeckers, green woodpeckers (heard long before seen!) and unusually a group of commorants who have made the lake their home; blown in on a storm many years ago and have stayed ever since.

We have 2 white Moscovy ducks which cannot resist the lure of the water, and will fly down to the lake for a splash around. They don't fly very high and landing is not that elegant. They don't quack as you might expect but make little squeaky noises, especially when being talked to, they join in the conversation with tail wagging, head bobbing and wing flapping. They are very friendly!
Since opening in May 2008 business has slowly grown with many people making a return stay. The lakeviews have been sketched and painted by artists and the lake fished and canoed. One of our walking routes leaves from the park, and for approximately 13.5kms takes you through the countryside to Felletin and back to the park with minimal road walking.
Many now use us for weekend getaways, including groups for cycling, walking, fishing and visiting the tapestry museums in Felletin and Aubusson: using the hire tent or mobile home to make life easier (see accommodation page for further details)
