About Camping D'Angers - Lac de Maine

Suitable For

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

Nearby

It's 1km to the nearest supermarket, petrol station, bakery, bank and so on, and 5km into the very heart of the old town centre from the campsite. There's a bus stop 300m from the campsite that takes you (via bus number 6) into the centre in 25 minutes and there are also cycle paths right from the campsite entrance (bikes available to hire) that take you into town through a beautiful 250-acre park. In fact, the whole cycle path is a delight, stick with it to enjoy not only the old town of Angers, but also old slate quarries and the banks of the River Maine, which can be followed far beyond the city. The campsite borders Lac de Maine, where swimming is permitted (lifeguards through summer), while kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding and sailing are all options too. You can also join regular nature walks – the lake is a protected bird reserve with a total of nearly 235 species recorded. Finally, in Angers itself, the cathedral (0033 2 4187 5845), the riverside château (0033 2 4186 4877), the Musée des Beaux-Arts (0033 2 4105 3800) and the Museum of Natural Science (0033 2 4105 4850) are the main attractions, but you can spend hours simply exploring the city's nooks and crannies. Start with a visit to the tourist information centre if you want to get your bearings.

Food & Drink

An on-site snack wagon opens all day during July and August (drinks, homemade pizzas, salads, snacks and more) with an outdoor terrace overlooking the swimming pool. You can also take away. Fresh bread and pastries are available to order each day (place your order the evening before). Head into Angers centre for endless more options. Bistrot des Ducs (0033 2 4186 8868) on Rue des Deux Haies is a particularly good, independently run eatery for genuinely French cuisine. For something super casual, pizzas from humble-looking Le Napoli (0033 2 4187 6809) on Rue Toussaint are also a guilty pleasure.

Very enjoyable stay- would happily return!

Great site with lovely facilities and a super location a short walk/ bike ride from the lake. We stayed in the Evasion chalet, simple but very functional and practically kitted out. Very grateful for the fridge freezer given the hot weather endured! Remember to bring hand soap, extra loo roll, extra bin bags plus all the basics (salt, oil, tea, coffee, sugar ) for the kitchen. Staff were very helpful also very conscientious and mindful with the covid precautions. The bakery order the day before for the following morning, worked very well and the pastries delicious. We also ate very well from the grill. The pool and playground were fab for the kids. Very much enjoyed the bikes hired (hire available by the day or half day at an extra charge subject to availability) and the cycle to Angers is highly recommended.

Wonderful location for city camping

Very friendly staff (thanks for the suggestion of ‘Chez Pont Pont’ for dinner!), now part of the Huttopia group so you know you’re getting a good standard. Recently renovated so new facilities and a great spot straight onto the extensive cycle tracks. Not quite as clean as I’d have expected given how often it should be cleaned, but that doesn’t detract from the quality of the place. I suppose it did feel a little soulless in a way, but many sites do in September. They’re all still quite busy so I don’t really see why the bar and restaurant are open only for 2 months as they’re such a central and huge feature of the place! They could at least open reduced hours or areas rather than full closure. Still a lovely site though.

Clean, well run - a bit lacking in soul.

Really well run, very clean and well organised with lovely staff. Close to lots of great things to do like the Chateau Angers and Terra Botanica. Only draw back is it is perhaps the least characterful Cool Camping site we have been too. Less Cool Camping ad more Efficient Camping in feel.

One of the best if not the best camping sites we ever stayed in

Ideal for bike enthusiasts lots and lots of biking trucks very well kept leading to beautiful little villages along the river Maine or directly to beautiful town of Angers . Many other thinks to do , to many to be enumerated here. Lovely food coffee and nice people. We definitely recommend it

Lovely week

Just back from 6 days here! Had a great time, not our usual choice of a campsite location, we normally go for middle of nowhere! This was great tho, nice and quiet and in a lovely area despite being so close to the city! Lovely clean pool, and playpark etc, all very new and clean feeling! Nice to borrow games etc and play badminton etc. Facilities clean, tho not all showers open despite campsite being full and it being high season? Only had to wait for shower once tho so was generally ok. The lakes nice, 10 min walk, but there’s nice swimming area, loos etc. We hired canoes on the lake too...it’s not that big...2 hours is probably long enough! Helpful staff tho. Nice to walk round it too, and see the beavers. Few things... We booked a large pitch but the one we were allocated wasn’t big enough for our tent! Thankfully they moved us to another- much bigger - I’ve no idea why they allocated such a small one- definitely ask if you don’t get one you’re happy with! They offer bbq rental but there are only 2 for the whole site so make sure you book it early if you want one or take your own. They offer bike rental but have very few there, we failed to get them twice. You can book them the night before but the staff failed to tell me that when I asked and instead told me it was first come first served in the morning...I wasn’t v happy after setting my alarm early to find that wasn’t the case! You have to book your bread for the next day by 8pm the day before....be prepared to wait a while in the morning to collect it...it’s quite slow while they serve the breakfast coffees etc at the same time. If you’ve got kids there’s a fun leisure park at brissac that’s worth spending a day at. I wouldn’t go back, we like exploring new places, but we did have a fun time there and all facilities v nice, staff friendly etc, pizza good 🙂
