Did you know…?

You can ski in Arcachon, near your campsite in Aquitaine! Not on snow, no (there isn't any), but on pine needles. A ski slope was created in 1938 and maintained for years by the Ski Club bordelaise to keep aficionados of the sport gliding. Despite an accident in the 1970s that put a stop to the sport, the Association des amis de la piste de ski sur aiguilles de pins d'Arcachon (Association of Friends of the Arcachon Pine Needle Ski Run) was set up to revive it.

What to do when camping in Arcachon

Arcachon itself is well worth a visit!  Start your walk along the characterful streets of the town centre with their colonial-style buildings, or with a visit to the magnificent Château Deganne, now a prestigious casino.
