Campsite on the lake of Castillon
The Castillon Lake in the Verdon
Lake Castillon is the ideal place to spend a day with your family. There are lots of small beaches where you can laze around and take a swim. Many of the beaches are patrolled. At Le Sirocco, the water sports center at the lake Castillon, near to Castellane, you can hire a pedalo (with or without a slide), canoe, kayak or paddle-boat and take to the water in complete safety to admire the Lake’s shoreline.
At the sailing club on the other side of the lake in Saint-Julien du Verdon, you can have a go at windsurfing, or try out sailing in an Optimist or dinghy on calm waters sometimes lulled by the Mistral wind…
