Comfortable camping in a lovely location in the Bois de Boulogne – perfect for enjoying the best of the French capital

Believe it or not, Paris has always been a great place to camp. There has been a centrally located campsite here for years. Well connected to the rest of the city centre, yet, located in the midst of Paris' largest park, the Bois de Boulogne, it has always been a surprisingly bucolic alternative, not forcing you to forgo the pleasures of camping at all.

Recently revamped, and now part of the nationwide and excellent Indigo group, 'Camping Indigo Paris' is open all year round and has a large number of flat and shady pitches for both caravans and campervans and campers with their own tents, including 30 'pedestrian' pitched for those travelling on foot, and also several glamping alternatives.

There are three fully renovated, light and airy washrooms – heated so they are comfortable at any time of year – with shower cubicles and family bathrooms, baby-changing areas and children's toilets, as well as an area reserved for people with reduced mobility. There's also a central lodge with a café that opens onto a lovely terrace and a TV room plus a new children's playground.

It's a large and lovely site, no question, with a great riverside location and the whole of the Bois de Boulogne to explore – you can stroll along the river, take a boat trips on the lakes, visit the Jardin d'Acclimatation theme park or the Bagatelle landscaped gardens, among many other things. But for all the location's appeal, you'd have to be mad to spend too much time here, with Paris waiting just beyond. Get out there and enjoy it – this campsite is a fabulous base for seeing the city!

Nearby

In the Bois de Boulogne you're in the heart of Paris, and during summer the campsite's bike hire service is a great way to see both the park and the rest of the city – though there is also a metro station 2km north of the site at Pont de Neuilly. A former hunting ground of the Paris monarch, the Bois covers a massive area, and has 15km of cycleways and some 28km of bridleways and footpaths. Specific points of interest include the elegant Parc de Bagatelle, with its wonderful landscaping, magnificent rose gardens and Chinese pagoda; the Jardin d'Acclimatation, an originally 19th-century theme park with rides, mini golf, boating and more; and the botanic gardens and glasshouses of the Jardin des Serres d'Auteuil. Beyond the Bois, well, there's the rest of Paris...!

Food & Drink

The site's new café-restaurant serves homemade pizzas and plenty of other dishes and has a lovely terrace on which to enjoy them – it's open weekday lunchtimes and every evening during the peak summer season. The closest restaurant to the site is the old-fashioned and reliable Relais du Bois (01 45 04 27 60), while on the far (city centre) side of the Bois, Oum el Banine (01 45 04 91 22) is a friendly neighbourhood Moroccan If you really want to push the boat out, the Bois has some top restaurants, for example the Grande Cascade (01 45 27 33 51), with its grand fin-de-siecle interior, or the Michelin-starred Pré-Catelan (01 44 14 41 14), whose €100 lunch menus just about make it affordable!

The Owner Says

The only one camping and glamping right in the heart of the French capital – enjoy a green surrounding in the centre of the city.

Paris Bois de Boulogne campsite has been totally refreshed! The washrooms are now all fully renovated, and the new, bright and modern central lodge welcomes you for a relaxing break. You can also make the most of a redesigned and landscaped site, allowing you to enjoy a brand new campsite, with even more nature, in the centre of Paris!

To visit Paris from the campsite, you can walk directly through several fantastic and mythic neighborhoods, such as the Latin Quarter (5th and 6th district), the Marais (3rd and 4th district), the Batignolles (17th district), the Butte aux cailles (13th district), Montmartre, the city island and Saint Louis.

After a bust day exploring the city – including the Eiffel tower, the Champs Elysées and more – come back to the green setting of the campsite on the banks of the Seine and make the most of the new facilities: a bright and modern central lodge that opens onto a lovely terrace and a new children's playground.

4 day stop over

Great campsite very helpful and friendly staff. Showers nice and clean. Bar and food good. Bus stop right outside campsite which takes you to metro station there us a charge for this. One down side was ground on pitches very hard so difficult to put pegs in ground. Luck I had my screw pegs otherwise could of been a problem. Great stay

Very nice spot

We spent 3 nights here with our 4 year old, great park and good free WiFi. We biked out around Paris from this campsite with a trailer and there are bike paths the whole way. Very reasonably priced, clean shower and toilets (although shower room was quite small) and very friendly staff. Good pitch for our camper and reasonably priced restaurant.

Friendly and helpful staff

Fantastic staff make you really welcome onto the site although the grassy pitch was actually a dusty stone pitch which was almost impossible to put tent pegs into. The shop is really well stocked and sell beautiful bread and croissants etc. and the grounds are well maintained. They only have 2 toilet and shower blocks which isn’t enough for the size of the site. Also be careful as anyone is able to enter the site to use the restaurant. We unfortunately came back from a day and evening in Paris to find someone had gone into our tent and stole some of our clothes. ☹️

★☆☆☆☆

the Service in the restaurant is very good.

The campsite is noisy. The space available to units is tiny , you will feel you are sharping a dinner table with your neighbours. The showers vary between hot and cold. There is little room for kids to play. The campsite is located next to a main road. Hopefully you will sleep well. If you take a dog , then be preparared as the nearest metro station is 1.6 km. he supermarket prices raise an eye brow or two. The bin area is over flowing every morning. No pool. The pitch was on an angle every morning we had slipped down our beds onto the floor. No need to bring the tent pegs , unless you have a boring tool.

Great place for Paris

We stayed here for four nights in June17. The campsite has good, big spaces to park your camper, mobile home or tent. The club and shop have everything you need (except Barcardi!). All the staff were very helpful, spoke very good English, and nothing was too much for them. There is a shuttle from the campsite to the metro, 2 euros each way. You buy tickets from the reception. This came in very handy and starts from about 8am until 10.45pm. The Paris metro is one of the best we have ever been on so you can then go anywhere! Make sure you come out of exit 6 when you come back, otherwise you will never find the bus stop! The site has three bathroom buildings. All are unisex. This was OK for the first building and the one at the end of the campsite. The biggest is the one in the middle of the campsite. We felt this one was the only thing that let the campsite down. The toilets were very tiny cubicles and it felt like you were sitting right next to the person in the next loo! One evening these toilets overflowed and there was stuff all over the toilet floor. This was not cleaned up until the next morning. There is also only one sink to wash your hands after being to the toilet. Also the men's urinals were very visible through the two little shutter doors to them, quite embarrassing to be going into the loos when you can see the men standing there! I have no problem using unisex showers but in the middle building they, again, were quite a tiny space to have a shower and get dressed in. There was only one hook on the wall and no where to put your dry clothes. This would be fine if you went to the showers in a dressing gown but not many of can do that! Also with unisex showers you cannot leave the cubicle until you are fully dressed, something that was quite difficult to do! The end building, which was much more spacious was closed half way through our stay, not sure why. We would definitely stay there again just because the closeness to the centre of Paris is so good.
