People who schedule the camping trip before or after the summer season are better off because the rates are usually cut by half which means more savings. When all the arrangements have been made, you can already get a map and plan your route.
Before you head to the campground, it will be a good idea to print out the driving directions. Write down also the contact number of the place you are going so you can call if you get lost. If possible, encode all this information into your GPS unit which will reduce the odds of getting lost.
Make sure you also have all the equipment you need. This includes of course a tent, food, survival gear and a first aid kit. You can surely make a stopover at a grocery when your supplies are running low. Since you may get loss, see if you can get a GPS unit.
One thing you should know about camping in France is that you don’t always have to sleep inside a tent. The French government issues star ratings to campsites and if the rating for a certain campground is given a 4 or 5 star rating, this means you can take a dip in the swimming pool, eat in one of the restaurants or even sleep in an inn or hotel.
It should also be pointed out that camping in France is not only in the countryside but within the city itself. Believe it or not, there is a campsite inside Paris itself namely the Bois de Bologne Camp which happens to be just a few minutes away from Champs Elysees and the Eiffel Tower.
Who knew that a road trip and Camping in France can be done at the same time? With the right information and proper planning, you will have a great time seeing the famous landmarks and the beautiful countryside.
