The 2 rivers

The campsite is flanked by two rivers: La Ligne and La Lande, which you can access directly from the campsite.

La Lande flows into La Ligne, which then follows its course to Chauzon, where it meets the Ardèche.

Both have low flow rates rivers and La Lande is fed by a source halfway between the village of Uzer and the campsite.

The Line crosses Largentière, and arrives here along a succession of flat stones.

Beavers

These two rivers (which are shallow) are separated from the pitches by an area free of campers , dubbed « the promenade ».

Therefore, there’s no direct danger for young children.

There are plenty of access points to the rivers, for paddling, rafting, setting up dams or cooling off.

At nightfall, you can watch the beavers making their dams just past the confluence of the two rivers.

The water basin

The water basin

In July and August, we build a dam just upstream of the confluence of La Lande and La Ligne, depending on weather conditions and flows).

This creates a body of still water with a maximum depth of 1.70 m: a perfect playground for those who love swimming in the river, with activities such as canoeing lessons (available to all), inflatable boats and even rope jumps for those who dare…

The waterfall

If you follow La Ligne upriver, or go along the access path from the campsite, you’ll reach a beautiful waterfall fed by La Ligne, which forms a second, entirely natural, water basin!

Fishing in the river

Fishing

The two rivers are classed as category 1 (so-called “trout” rivers in France).

If you’re keen on fishing, or with a bit of luck, you might catch a brown trout in these calm waters!
