Campsites in the Alps

The French Alps encompass a large area between Lake Geneva in the north and basically the Mediterranean coast in the south. There are three large national parks, where you can camp well: Vanoise, Écrins National Park and Mercantour National Park.

You will find hundreds of campsites throughout the French Alps. Most are small to medium-sized - really large campsites are not numerous here. The range is fairly evenly distributed over the area, but there are a few places with more than average on offer.

For example, around the Lac de Serre-Poncon, the range is quite wide: there are more than twenty campsites on or near the lake. You will also find relatively many campsites around Chamonix and the Mont Blanc, and Saint-Gervais-les-Bains.
