Campsite Description

With a scenic backdrop of rugged hills, this large and lively campsite is tucked away amongst pretty woodland, and is a haven for nature lovers. Domaine de Chalain is a verdant campsite, which lies alongside a crystal clear natural lake, which is ideal for fishing, canoeing or hiring a pedalo. It has large, flat and grassy pitches, and the on site facilities are outstanding, and include a bakery, ice cream parlour, souvenir shops and a cosy restaurant, which has beautiful views over the lake. There is a fantastic aqua complex on the campsite, complete with indoor and outdoor pools, waterslides and rapids, and a recently added jacuzzi and sauna. The adjoining lakeside beach is a great place to soak up the sun, and the lake itself is also safe for swimming. There is an extensive entertainment programme in high season with family discos, cinema shows and karaoke competitions in the evenings, and laser games, pony rides and archery lessons during the day. The nearby spa town of Lons Le Saunier is very picturesque, and hosts spectacular firework displays and outdoor music concerts throughout the summer. Switzerland is also close enough for a day trip.
