Camargue Tent Camping can be in managed sites or in a rustic setting.
The northern parts of the Camargue are flat delta grasslands. In the south, at the tip of the Rhone River Delta, the land flattens and becomes the sandy desert of the Camargue.
Vacationers in autos with tents and long-distance bike riders camping in tents find many tent sites including the two free beach sites Plage Piemanson and Plage Beauduc. (Plage Piemanson could be closed to camping, check ahead)
Many caravans, as the camping vehicle is called, arrive at the tip of the delta during mid May for a long summer visit.
Some caravans base in luxury campgrounds with pool and all the amenities, while others head for the sandy spit at the end of the delta and a vast unregulated camp out at Plage Piemanson and Plage Beauduc.
During July and August, the beaches are crowded as the European vacationers take to the roads and set up summer quarters in the wilds of the Camargue.
Kite surfing and wind surfing are popular at these beaches
Kite surfing lessons are available at Port St Louis
