Camping Le Clapas

Salavas

The _Camping le Clapas_ is a small camping (85 pitches) in a exceptional location for families and nature lovers. On the right bank of the river, in the village of Salavas, in front of Vallon Pont d'Arc, Le Clapas is installed along the water at the entrance of the gorges of Ardeche. The road (_le chemin de la Vernède_) that leads you to the campsite has its end ... at the campsite : no traffic for more quietness and security. The camp, created in 1981, has a magnificent vegetation and many trees to ensure a natural shade.

      The establishment

      The campsite, the owner and staff were very accommodating, and nothing was too much trouble. The location was perfect for unwinding and kayaking down the Ardeche.

      Private and in woodlands

      Main bed could have been more comfortable and would take own pillows next time

      Der Campingplatz ist sehr klein und daher schön ruhig und familiär. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Der Campingplatzbesitzer, der von morgens bis abends an der Bar steht, ist super freundlich, hat uns immer nett empfangen und konnte immer weiterhelfen. Wir würden den Campingplatz jederzeit weiterempfehlen und gerne wiederkommen.

      Accommodation review

      Die meisten Stellplätze sind schön groß. Man hat vom Stellplatz aus jedoch keinen Flussblick (zumindest Mitte August), da wenige "Sanddünen" und Büsche zwischen Campingplatz und Privatstrand liegen

      I chose le Clapas because the website was clear and easy to use and it was in a good location for the start of the canoe descent, and proximity to the Chauvet 2 grotte (10 mins drive). It was a great campsite for us, not too big,, friendly, very clean, modern facilities, lovely bar and snack with a terrasse. A lovely sandy beach, on a nice stretch of river with a set of rapids just up stream that were fun to play in.

      We did not have the warmest of welcomes, because we were later arriving than we expected. 22hr. But In the event it was fine, we pitched as quickly and quietly as we could and any tension was soon forgotten.

      Very friendly staff. Good bar and reading room.The facilities, in fact the whole campsite, were always immaculately clean. The snack bar served large portions of delicious burgers, pizzas etc every night except Thursday when the visiting chicken roaster visited and kept me entertained for most of the afternoon with his music singing and sense of humour. The children did not want to leave and extracted a promise to return

      Calm, direct River access

      Important to know: pitches „at the Riverside“ are at the riverside, but because of bushes and trees there is no river view. Still nice pitches though!
