This site had been on our 'bucket list' for a few years as me and my wife both love river swimming. Had four nights there.

It didn't disappoint - excellent river swimming.

We went out of height of season so mainly retired couples (German) or people with pre-school kids (Dutch) - in tents, motor homes and vans.

Pitches looked very big - you could easily fit two vans and cars on most. Plenty of shade.

Medium to small sized site with a few pitches on a lower level near the river (all tents when we were there) with the majority - and all the facilities on the upper section. Having said that nowhere was more than a couple of hundred yards from either the river of the other facilities.

Staff friendly and helpful with good English.

Couple of large supermarkets (Carrefour and Intermarche) in nearby Bagnols sur Ceze on the Nimes road out of town - easily reached by the signs through the 'centre hospitalier' rather than the advertised route on the easterly ring road or through town.

Some excellent local wine at very reasonable prices.

Handy for day trips - we went to Nimes to see the Roman Ampitheatre which was well worth it.

But again - the big attraction is the Cascades themselves - we swam from the bottom pool up to the falls and back every day of our visit. I'm not the worlds strongest swimmer but felt comfortable even though river is deep in places - current was very week.

There was also a 'glamour' photoshoot taking place one morning using the falls as a back drop for a very pretty and scantily clad young lady.

Will no doubt be returning.

We were at Les Cascades in the middle of August, in our tent for 5 nights.

I would say the site is preferred by Dutch and French, and it was nice to be in the minority of Brits. (That's not to say there were no Brits, but it just didn't feel like some of the other sites we've been to, where you could be anywhere, if you know what I mean. )

Our pitch was close to the river, which meant we had a bit of an uphill trek to the sanitary block, but this wasn't really a big issue for us. I have to say though that the showers were in high demand in early evening, even had to queue on a couple of occasions (something I don't think I've ever needed to do before). The main block was nice and clean, and there was also a good laundry area. (I think this block is being refurbished for the summer season. )

The pool was good, not overly busy though, as I think the river is really the main attraction of this site. The rock/cliff jumping is extremely popular, and our two girls were keen to give all the jumps a go. There are signs up saying 30 people have died since 1960 or something, but other than that, there are no health and safety police, so jump at your own peril! On a serious note, you just have to approach it with common sense. We just made sure the girls (15 and 12) were jumping where other people were jumping so they could be sure that the water was deep enough. Needless to say they had a whale of a time! I didn't do any jumping, but did enjoy swimming up and down the river - best to get there early or late to make the most of the river without the usual 'traffic'. The river gets busy when the locals have finished work, and also at weekends, but at other times it's fairly easy to find somewhere to set up camp.

There were a couple of issues with some young people down at the river, but it wouldn't put me off going again. I think it had been a bit worse before we got there though, perhaps things were tailing off as we got further through August. There were a few gatherings round fires on the river beach, and one night there was some noise from the river where people were doing some night-time jumping and diving, egging each other on etc. But on the whole it was fairly quiet, and we all slept well!

The site has a play area for kids, and a bouncy castle, both of which kept my 3 year old occupied. There was evening entertainment, but we couldn't really hear it from our pitch, it would be different if you were closer of course.

The site is well situated for visiting Avignon (there's a free park and ride at Ile de Piot) and also the Pont du Gard (expensive at €18, but you can obviously make the most of it, with swimming in the river etc. )

On the whole, it was a good site that I would definitely revisit.

This is now the third time we have visited this site so I thought an updated review was necessary.

The site has undergone a lot of improvements over the past 18 months and now has an Italian restaurant and refurbished outdoor bar area. There looked to be a stage so I assume there is entertainment put on during high season, although we were there in September so I can't comment on this. Improvements have also been made to the pool and sunbathing area and the centre of the site is now a lovely space to have a glass of wine and listen to the cicadas.

There is a good children's play area, a pétanque court, a basketball court and even a bouncy castle. Having no children in tow I can't comment on this to a great extent, other than the fact the facilities looked good.

The main draw continues to be the river and the waterfalls. It seems that some work has been done here also as the deep swimming area seems to be clear of the large boulders that were there before, presumably moved to make it safer for those who queue up to jump 20ft off the rocks into the crystal clear waters below.

Whilst there this time we spent some time exploring the local vineyards and discovered some lovely Cote du Rhone wines that were produced within a few kilometres of the site. The vineyard over the main road even bottles 'les cascades' wine which is very good and a great souvenir to take home.

All in all still a lovely site with the majority of visitors being French or German. Despite this the staff speak excellent English and the fact this site takes Camping Cheques keeps it firmly on my list of 'favourites'.

We stayed on this site for 8 nights, having originally only booked for four. The site itself is fine, but it is the location that really makes this campsite. The main camping area was busy with some decent sized pitches and plenty of shade (necessary in 35 degrees c!). However, if you go down to the separate bit by the river it is absolutely stunning, with a picturesque river 50 yards away(through a security gate so that the hoards of tourists don't get in and use the sites facilities during the day). The river has a natural beach and plunge pools, with a series of amazing waterfalls just up-stream. We spent our time lazing in the river and building dams. The river beach got very busy during the day, but in the evening you more or less had the place to yourself, and a moonlight dip (with or without a cozzie!) was just superb.

The site is near to Rocque Sur Ceze which is a beautiful mediaeval village on a hilltop, but doesn't function as a village at all. It is worth a morning's walk around but the only thing it has on offer other than lovely old buildings is a small creperie. If you cross the pretty bridge at the bottom of the river there is a good restaurant that does a decent priced lunch. There is also a cafe/restaurant directly opposite the campsite on the other side of the river. This would be a long way to walk to, but if you hitch up your shorts and tread carefully it is possible to wade across and still look decent enough to sit down for a meal.

As I said, the campsite is fine, toilets were clean and never a queue. If you camp down by the river it is a long way to walk to the toilets, but worth the effort for the peace and tranquillity in that section. That area of the site is fine for tents, and there were a couple of caravans, but the approach is steep and uneven so I wouldn't risk it with a big unit. There is a pool, but why would you bother when there is the river on your doorstep? There is also a small basic bar and restaurant and you can organise canoeing trips from the site.

We had to drag ourselves away after 8 days but only because we'd promised ourselves some time in Spain. In hindsight I wouldn't have bothered with Spain and would have stayed at Les Cascades instead.
