The Drôme - Campsites along the river
Many tourists pass by on their way to Provence or the south coast. But the Drôme itself is more than worth a visit.
The Drôme department is located in the south of the Rhône-Alpes region and owes its name to the Drôme River, which cuts through the area. It is approximately 1100 kilometers from Utrecht. The area has a pleasant Mediterranean climate. Various medieval towns offer a great opportunity for days out in the area.
Take a stroll through the winding streets of Mirmande, a beautiful old village among lavender fields and orchards. And then there are the ancient Le Poët-Laval , La Garde-Adhémar or Montbrun-les-Bains that are beautifully situated on a hill. The area is also perfect for walking and cycling. Take a look at the steep walls and waterfalls in the Gorges d'Omblèze. And by car you can also follow the route of the Routes de la Lavande (the lavender roads), right through the beautiful lavender fields that are especially common in the Drôme Provençale.

view on the map The Drome River, from which the area takes its name, is a popular camping destination. There are several campsites right on the banks, both large and smaller and often with direct access to the river. That does not always mean that you can swim well: the river can sometimes be wild, the river water is quite fresh, and not every campsite on the river is actually equipped with a beach. And the banks are often stony so it's a good idea to bring swimming shoes.
Directly by the river you will find for example Camping Le Glandasse (120 places), Camping Le Pont D'Espenel (60 places, relatively simple but nicely situated in a bend of the river) or Camping De Justin (175 places).
If you don't necessarily have to be right on the waterside, you can also take a look at the luxury Camping Le Glandasse (130 places), equipped with a large swimming pool and also great as a base for trips in the region.
Camping Gervanne is a campsite with a reasonably comparable level of luxury, but also directly on the river.
