I've stayed twice at the one in Saumur, which is a lovely city on the Loire; the site is in fact on an island in the middle of it!

It's open till November I believe.

Other than that, I would have thought Tripadvisor as already mentioned.

I would use Google Maps! Search 'camping' and the area/region/department you are interested in and voila! camping sites will appear that you can click on. That way you can be specific in the area you want. I find it's the quickest way. 

Or take a look at Vente Privee, they've got some really cheap deals.

There are lots of campsites open outside those dates.  We use the ACSI off season discount card during May and October and have no problem finding sites.  Have a look at their website.

Hi Folks,

Thanks for all of the valuable information.   Is it me, or are the campsites only open from May to Sept?  We are year-round campers, and normally travel off-season to avoid the crowds and unrully children/adults (sorry).   However, if the camp sites are open for only a short period, what to do???

 

Cheers!

yes, i think one of the great things about touring and camping in france is that you dont have to book,  so you can find a site where you need one and they are never full... except maybe in the more popular seaside resorts.

municipal sites are usually well signposted, and we found they were a more 'down to earth' experience with a good cross section of people staying there.

You are so on the ball.

With Daughter and Granddaughter traveled all the way down to San Sabastian and back, in the camper van.

With exceptions, we all agreed the most agreeable and restful sites were the municipal sites and off the radar little sites, which we came accross by chance.

there are quite a few french ones on the ukcampsite site, and some good reviews etc, but often the ones you find on the web are full of english and dutch people.

depends what you are looking for...

i loved staying at the municipal sites when we used to tour in the van, often in great locations, cheep, and a lot more french

campingfrance.com or, if you have a department in mind, visit their website and search for campsites, that's usually the way we do it.
