Used this site as an overnight stop on our way to the South of France. We are a family with 18yr old son. It was easy to find and just a short hop from the AutoRoute. Check in was friendly and efficient and the staff spoke English. I had emailed 2 months before to ask if they could reserve us a pitch and they had all my details to hand when we arrived. Good flat pitch and had plenty to choose from we arrived at 5pm. Brilliant toilet block and very clean. Site is close to lidl and Auchan so we were able to get some food and drinks for our journey next day and fill up with cheap fuel. We booked a table at the site restaurant as soon as we arrived and were glad we did as it was very busy. It was 8. 8. 15 so height of the season. Food was superb - plat du jour 15 euros and it was steak and chips with a side salad with a choice of starter and dessert we couldn't fault it. An excellent site for a stopover and we will definitely use it again.

Another one nighter. Plenty of room when we arrived mid afternoon but it soon filled up. English spoken in reception. The site was clean and tidy. The usual hedged off pitches and lots of trees so plenty of shade. There were very new looking toilet and washing blocks. The pool was closed. It was being renovated. Lidl and Auchan within easy walking distance. Free Wifi all over site. Quiet night when we were there. Went for a very pleasant stroll along the river into the town. This was a fair old hike there and back. Not the most economic site at 18. 45 for Campervan, 2 adults with electric.

We stayed for 6 nights, as we wanted to see the area. It is a large site which fills up quickly after about 4 pm, as it is close to the A6. It was very quiet and peaceful during the day. Some noise from the main road and the fire station opposite.

There was a lot of noise from adjacent nightclub one night ( a Thursday) but this appears to have been a one off as it was quiet at the weekend.

Pitches are large and fairly level. Toilet blocks large and cleaned daily, very modern.

The pool was nice, we had it to ourselves, no lifeguard present. A notice prohibits wearing shorts.

There is a small shop where you collect bread ordered from reception the day before. It sells essentials.

The adjoining restaurant is good, but got full due to world cup. (Big screen tv in bar) You can get a drink from the bar if you do not want to eat. Food was good and not too expensive. It has a nice terrace to eat on if weather permits, we felt they could do with extra waitresses, as the 2 there worked very hard.

There is a Buffalo Grill next to the site which is good but is a US style steakhouse. Good service and food though! We used it one night as the bar was too full and we do not like football!

There is a Lidl opposite and a massive Auchan a couple of minutes away-it has a fuel station.

It is about a 20 -30 minute stroll along the river too the town centre which has some old parts and a pleasant riverside promenade, with ample cafes and restaurants.

To get there you turn left out of the site along the side road, past the exhibition centre.

Cross the road by the roundabout into the park, then follow the footpath past the marina to the riverside

It is short drive from the site into the pleasant Bourgogne/Burgundy countryside with loads of pretty villages and wineries to isit. You can also follow the tourist Route desVins, which is a nice day out.

A good site for short or long stay, the staff are pleasant and speak english. We paid 21. 60 euros for oufit, 2 people and 6 A hookup.

Easy to find and only 10 minutes from the motorway making it an ideal stop over. We stayed two nights and visited the town too which was delightful. A lovely cycle along the riverside only taking 10 minutes.

Though a large site it had lots of shade and tree cover, was well set out offering pricacy and good sized pitches. Some pitches baked dry due to the hot summer and a challenge for our tent pegs but we were able to hunt around for one that suited us. Brand new toilet block, showers and washing up facilities which are excellent, cleaned daily and plenty of them.

Very good central play area for the kids and small swimming pool. Though BEWARE as speedos for boys and men only and a rather official man making sure all complied, even throwing out an older guy in swimming shorts.

Shop selling mostly booze, and bread and pain au chocolat etc in the morning. The campsite is opposite an Aldi and 5 minutes from a shopping complex so this isn't an issue.

Restaurant too on site which we visited offering Plat du Midi and Plat du Soir, plus a range of options. Prices mediocre and food of a good standard.

The staff were helpful and friendly. We didn't book and there didn't seem to be any need to given the size of the site and its high turn over of visitors passing through.

A very good site and good location if spending a few days or just passing through - worth a visit we would come back.

We are a party of 4 adults and stayed overnight here on our way to Annecy, and were pleased with the quality of the campsite. We were given the option of choosing our own pitch.

Very large campsite for a municipal, but no complaints at all. Pitches were plenty big enough for our needs, level and grassy. Clean, modern sanitaires. We had take-away pizzas which were very nice. Although we didn't use the restaurant, it did look busy. Shop on site was good, with lovely fresh bread in the morning.

Unfortunately we walked looking for a way down to the River Saone, which we were told was only 10 minutes, but could not find it after 30 mins of searching. (probably 10 mins in car?)

Would definitely stopover here again. Good value for money.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights during this year's Tour de France (Macon was the town for the first rest day).

The site doesn't accept reservations and with Le Tour being in town we were concerned that it would be full by the time we arrived. We needn't have worried as there was plenty of space and we even got to choose our own pitch.

We settled on a large square grassy pitch surrounded on three sides by hedges. Any pitches that were excessively muddy were roped off to allow them to dry out and recover.

On our side of the site were the older toilet blocks but they were still OK - clean and not too busy. On both nights we had takeaway pizza from the on site shop and it was very nice.

Macon itself is very nice, a normal sort of place - not full of tourist sites. We cycled there along the river and it didn't take very long.

Overall, we enjoyed our brief stay here and it is on our list of places we'd go back to sometime.
