Hi,
Unless it's changed this year, you didn't have to cross any roads. We play a lot of tennis & the courts are next to the pool so I would have noticed! There is a shared pedestrian/cycle track that runs through the site down to Millau itself, maybe that's what is meant? Have a look on their website, there should be a campsite map.
The other sites we have stayed at nearby are Le Peyrelade & Val de Cantobre. Val de Cantobre is not on a river of any size as I remember, but has a bigger pool complex than when we last went. Le Peyrelade has a good river beach, but again, it's a few years since we visited. Both are a drive from Millau.
Hope this helps,
Fiona

Fiona yes it is a cycle track not a road which is great because a) separates all the noise from the pitches and b) easy access in to the town.
And not a bad drive at all - long but very straightforward and as some have said scenic.

And would definitely recommend if you want a family site with plenty going on but not too full on.

It does look pretty perfect for us. Is there a mix of English/French people there?

Hi,
We have stayed there the week before UK school holidays, so not many British there, mostly Dutch & French.

We used to go to Camping Mazet Plage with our kids; on the banks of the Chassezac near Les Vans. Good for sport climbing and gorge walks. Mainly french; bar, bread and boules on site; some entertainment and the occasional band.

When we were there Kate, mid/late August, it was a really nice mix - mainly Dutch, French and English but with many other nationalities too. I think many of the Dutch campers had finished their holidays when we were there.

We were there early August and it was was almost entirely Dutch; I think we were 1 of about 5 British families, and 3 of the others had come together!

We really liked the site, even though it's perhaps not the prettiest. The river is perfectly clear and lovely to swim in. We didn't canoe, but just used our own dinghy.

It's worth trying to choose and book your pitch before you go; I wouldn't fancy one on the pool/bar side of the cycle path, nor too near the bar. We were near the beach access, and that suited us perfectly.

It was our first trip to the Tarn area and we preferred it to the Dordogne, where we have been several times, mostly because we found it less crowded.

We too are in NW England, and did the drive, via Dover, in 3 easy days. I'd be comfortable doing it in 2.
