France has more forest than any other European country, so there is no better way to experience the country than by visiting a forest campsite. Wake up and breathe in the fresh air, take in the scenic views from your accommodation and enjoy the peace and quiet of the forest setting, while still having access to all the amenities and facilities you need to make your trip comfortable.
Take advantage of being in close proximity to forest trails for hikes year-round, and enjoy the additional shade that forest campsites provide in the summer months to stay cool and enjoy a great night’s sleep.
Experience the togetherness of a camping holiday with loved ones and create unforgettable memories.
Escape to the sea, mountains or countryside....Have a break and breathe again!
A splash in the pool with the kids. A sunset on the beach. Rediscover the fun and beauty in the simple things in life.
There are lots of unique things to do and see if you choose forest camping in France.
Enjoy the natural beauty of France and fully immerse yourself in nature by camping in the forest. This type of camping is perfect for nature lovers and adventure seekers, who can fall asleep beneath the starlit sky and wake up to the rustling sound of wind blowing through the trees.
Camping in the forest means that when you are ready to leave the campsite for a day of activities, you are quite often already on the edge of a national park. Visit a campsite on the periphery of the Parc National des Cévennes and enjoy unspoilt countryside and a diverse range of flora and fauna.
Choosing a forest campsite means you can benefit from on-site and nearby outdoor activities and sports. If you are looking to add a sense of adventure to your holiday, a forest campsite is a great pick. Try tree climbing, rent bikes and go mountain biking, or explore nearby hiking tracks.
Choosing a campsite located in close proximity to a town can be the perfect middle ground if you are travelling with a group of people with different interests. Visit a forest campsite in Avignon where you can hike forest trails in the daytime and wander the streets of the old town in the evenings.
There are lots of festivities celebrated in France throughout the year. Visit a forest campsite in Brittany and catch a stage of the Tour de France in the summer months, or visit Berck, on the northern coast of France, and watch the amazing Berck sur Mer Kite Festival during the spring.
The forest setting provides a wide variety of flora and fauna. Look out for wild lavender, oaks, pine and olive trees throughout Provence, or bird enthusiasts can watch the many different bird species, such as eagle owls, herons and even greater flamingos, in the Carmargue region.
No trip to France is complete without trying some of its world-famous cuisine. Visit a forest campsite in Normandy and try moules marinières, or when visiting Burgundy, enjoy coq au vin braised in local red wine. Camping near the coast is the perfect opportunity to try some of the country’s best oysters.
France has a large amount of culturally significant sites and many of them are located in close proximity to a forest campsite. When camping in Avignon, make sure you see the Palais des Papes, one of the most important Gothic buildings in Europe, or visit the Pont Saint Bénézet, another one of Avignon’s iconic landmarks.

The mild climate in France means it is a great destination for forest camping all year round. The summer months can get quite warm in the south of France, so when visiting Bordeaux choose a forest campsite and take advantage of the shady plots to get a great night’s sleep.
Camping in the forest is a unique experience, perfect for creating new memories in a beautiful setting. All the normal activities you might enjoy on a campsite are made extra special when in a forest setting: from taking a swim in an outdoor pool surrounded by trees to playing a board game around the campfire.
There is nothing quite like camping for a truly relaxing holiday experience, allowing you to escape the noise and fast pace of city life in the forest. It’s easy to spend quality time with the family away from all your usual distractions and to take the time to disconnect.
The fact that campsites offer a wide range of activities on site and there is so much to do within the forest means that this kind of holiday works well if you only have time for a shorter break. As soon as you arrive at a forest campsite, your experience begins.
Camping in a forest setting means breathing in fresh air with minimal pollution, and there are many health benefits to enjoy from spending time outside doing sports and activities. Camping in the forest in particular helps reduce stress and ensures a great night’s sleep.
