In the campsite there are heaps of leaflets but visits to the European Centre for Nuclear Research is one in particular that the campsite can arrange and they also have a good relationship with the nearby adventure course (06 76 64 20 31) in the trees of Divonne – great spot for children. Voltaire Château (04 50 40 53 21; open April – Oct) is 17 km away in Ferney-Voltaire and, after a hard day walking, biking and exploring the Haut Jura national park, there's also a thermal spa and wellness centre (04 50 20 27 70) in Divonne-les-Bains.
Food & Drink
The bar-restaurant onside serves excellent homemade pizzas, along with a host of other snacks and drinks best enjoyed out on the terrace. It's only open over the May public holidays and through July and August. Outside of those times there are still plenty of great eateries in Divonne-les-Bains.
From Dijon follow the A39 south leaving it 30km south of Dole and following sings to Poligny where you join the N5. Stay on the N5 for the next 50km all the way into the mountains following signs for Morez. 10km after Morez, in Cure, the N5 ends at a roundabout, but continue straight over on to the D105. Continue on the (very windy) D105 to Gex (around 30 km away). At the roundabout in the entre of town take the first exit and follow the main street throuh ton and out past the intermarche supermarket. 4km after the intermarche look for the camping signposts on the left hand side of the road (also sign Saint-Gix). Follow this road for 2km and the campsite is on your left.Divonne SNCF train station (5km)
