Lac de Chalain

The Lac de Chalain is the jewel in the crown of the Jura region and is the most wonderful and also the largest natural lake in the region. La Pergola campsite is located on the banks of Lac de Chalain and it’s important to note the wonderful array of activities you can partake in on or around the lake.

Those looking to spend time out on the lake itself will find it is perfect for a spot of fishing or exploring by canoe or kayak and those after a more land based activity will love the large number of walks or cycling trails that are available around the lake and you even have the opportunity to partake in horse riding.

With such a lovely natural resource right on your doorstep you’d be silly not to fully explore it whilst staying at La Pergola campsite.
