The Owner Says

Nestled amongst the pine trees, these large and spacious canvas structures are the perfect place for friends and family to come together and enjoy this wonderful part of France!

There is a large and spacious living/dining area, with a fully kitted out kitchenette, and your very own private shower and toilet facilities.

Sleeping quarters are: one double bedroom, and a second bedroom with three single beds (bunk beds and a single).

Please bring your own bedding or hire these as an additional extra.

Calm and family friendly with wonderful facilities, the site offers new refurbished shower blocks, free Wi-Fi and a wealth of onsite activities including volleyball, petanque and tennis courts.

Besides the onsite swimming pool, the huge fresh-water lake offers plenty of aquatic adventure from water skiing to surfing, canoeing and kayaking.

A food truck (July & August) serves up homemade pizzas which you can enjoy whilst relaxing on the wooden terrace or you can take it away to enjoy by your pitch.

Order your bread and pastries the night before, so you can wake up to freshly baked bread and breakfast treats – the perfect way to kick start your day!

During the key summer months the campsite hosts a Kids Club with a range of craft and game activities, or enjoy a fun evening watching a magic show or the open-air film night.

The Atlantic Ocean is a short bike ride through the pine forest, these beautiful long and sandy beaches are a great place to enjoy be it in the rolling waves or whilst exploring the sand dunes. Bikes can be hired on site.

The campsite offers free Wifi and there is also an on site computer which is available for guests to use.

Shops and other amenities are all 100m away from the campsite entrance.

About Huttopia Lac de Carcans

Suitable For

Tents, campervans, motorhomes, caravans, families, groups, couples, pets… everyone!


There are lots of watersports (and swimming) on offer at the lake, which is the largest freshwater lake in France, or make your way to the beach, for surfing, bodyboarding or general beach-lolling. It's deadly flat and everywhere is easily explorable by bike, connected by footpaths and cycle paths. Lake-side Maubisson village is about 2km south of the site, while the resort of Carcans-Plage is an easy bike-ride away. Fishing is permitted in nearby Carcans-Hourtin lake.

Food & Drink

You can order morning bread and croissants at the campsite and there's an onsite food truck with terrace during July & Aug. Off the site, most of the restaurants in Maubisson and Carcans-Plage are pretty ordinary, although the Bistrot de Cochons (0033 5 5603 1561) in Lacanau-Ocean is pretty good. There's a grocery store 100m from the campsite.

Beautiful and welcoming.

Hello, My wife and I would like to say a very big thank you for the way in which we were welcomed to the campsite by all the staff we met. It was our first holiday in 7 years since we moved permanently to France from the uk, so it meant a lot to us and we were not disappointed. The campsite and accommodation were very clean and well kept, and the Covid-19 procedures were well managed and easy to understand. We would definitely recommend Huttopia Lac De Carcans. The only thing we would have liked in the tent would be a kettle, (stove top or electric,) as boiling water in a pan for coffees etc was not the easiest/safest way when pouring into mugs. Although we went at the end of the season it was a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful setting, with a lot of places to visit nearby. So once again a very big thank you and we hope to see you again soon. David et Lyn.

Beautiful experience

We had the best time at Huttopia lac de Carcans, I was nervous before going after reading the reviews and people mentioning noise however we experienced non of that. I think if you go in the school holidays naturally the chatter is going to be louder, the site was soo lovely set amongst the forest and the lake was beautiful, we cannot wait to go back next year.

Without the noise this place would be stunning

This place should be great, just what you expect from a cool camping site. Facilities, surroundings ,staff ,area , all fabulous ... BUT , it’s bedlam in the evening and night with music and noise from the surrounding area. This simply cannot live up to its billing when you are so badly disturbed in the evening .Its not as if it finished at a certain time , one evening going on till past one followed by shouting and screaming from the participants till very late. Some reviewers have mentioned this, some haven’t - all I can say is you would have to be a heavy sleeper not to be badly disturbed. I would suggest that Cool Camping remove this from the website and Huttopia make some serious efforts to deal with their neighbours. Sitting here on our last night with thumping music going on , having had a good time but wondering how much better it would have been without the spoilt evenings and nights . Without the noise this place would be stunning

Fabulous location

If you want a holiday where the kids are kept occupied the whole time while you relax this is the place for you. There’s so much to do for kids. Whether it’s football or basketball or table-tennis or volleyball or just hiding in the trees. There’s a swimming pool on site or the ocean is just a 20 minute bike ride away on safe cycle paths. The local town is 10 minutes away by bike selling all you need with nice coffee shops and restaurants. But the jewel in the crown is the lake which is a 5 minute walk. You really feel like you are at the beach. You can hire a boat or a pedalo or swim and jump off the many piers there’s also an aqua park. This is a great family holiday destination.

Avoid unless you like late night noise

Very noisy adjacent campsite that will spoil the tranquility of the area night after night with parties til midnight and beyond. Huttopia have not once recognised my complaint, so they obviously do not value their customers or their experience. Avoid
