Camping les Rivages is just outside Millau across the Tarn river on the road twards the Gorges de la Dourbie. It is, apparently, a very active site in the high season but in June it was busy yet peaceful. Staff are friendly and helpful. The toilet/shower blocks, of which there are four, are kept clean and are modern and well maintained as are the laundry facilities. On site is a shop, bar, restaurant and two swimming pools while fishing, swimming, canoeing and sunbathing can be had from the gravel beaches on the river which runs alongside the site.
At a leisure complex which is next to the site there is tennis, squash, a solarium and swimming pool.
The big draw in the region is of course the Gorges du Tarn the escarpments of which envelop the site in spectacular scenery visible from the pitches. The pitches, ranging in size from 90 to 150 square metres, are neatly set out among trees, generally in groups of four which are separated by hedges. Some of the pitches are situated on the bank of the river Dourbie and from these you have sight of the other main attraction of the region, the fabulous Millau bridge.
The site is an easy 20 minute walk from the busy centre of Millau where there are many bars, restaurants and shops. Just outside Millau on the D809 Route de Cavalerie there is a very well stocked caravan service centre which is equipped to do major work should you require it.
The various gorges (Tarn, Jonte, Dourbie) really are a must see. They are easily accessible by car - though some care and a degree of nerve is needed in places - and are a haven for cycling, climbing, paragliding and a host of other adventurous activities as well as the more straigtforward walking and sightseeing.
The Millau bridge or Viaduc is one of the wonders of Europe; an amazing blend of art and function and is a 10 minute drive by car. We chose to drive across with the caravan which incurred a toll of 9.80€ but does give access to the excellent, informative visitors centre from which you can walk up a hill to a viewpoint overlooking the bridge.
