Campsites in the Dordogne

09-2021  |  France

The Dordogne department, with its capital Périgueux, is located in the Aquitaine region. It is full of beautiful landscapes, beautiful old towns and villages and of course the Dordogne river that meanders through the landscape.

Directly by the river are, for example, Camping Les Bo-Bains (200 places) and Camping Domaine Soleil Plage (200 places)

view on the map It simply is a wonderful area for a holiday. In the morning you look for a terrace in Sarlat-le-Caneda, a touristy but pleasant town, for the first cup of coffee of the day. Around noon you travel to the river to cool off at one of the beaches that you find here and there. Or you can look around in pretty villages such as Le Bugue (with for example the Aquarium du Perigord Noir), Beynac-et-Cazenac (above which a beautifully situated castle towers) or Belves. Of course you can also visit the caves with prehistoric drawings, such as the famous Grotte de Rouffignac. And by the evening you make your choice from one of the many good restaurants in the area.

Early summer we went to see the Dordogne ourselves. An overview of our favorite campsites can be found here.

You can camp here very well, both directly on the river (in which you cannot always swim due to the current, and bring water shoes because the beaches are stony) and in the surrounding hills. Like almost everywhere in France you will find many different types of campsites here: large or small, simple or luxurious. You won't find the real mega-campsites that you still see on the west and south coast here, but if you appreciate a bit of luxury then you can go to a number of four-star campsites. For example, you have the Camping Les Bo-Bains in Badefols sur Dordogne or Camping Domaine Soleil Plage in Vitrac. Soleil Plage is located directly on the river, rents caravans and chalets, has a large swimming pool, shop, bar and restaurant.
