When travelers think about where to go in France, they are most likely envisioning a relaxing getaway in Paris surrounded by beautiful scenery with the Eiffel Tower standing tall in the distance. But there is far more to the nation than just the sights of the capital city, which tourists can find when they trek to the countryside for a camping trip.

Considering most people will be heading to the typical tourist traps, the camping sites that pepper the country are unlikely to be crowded with visitors. Those heading to the west coast of the country should consider heading to Camping de l’Ocean, which features incredible waterfront views. It is conveniently located nearby a number of vineyards and pine forests, as well as the sandy stretch of land at Plage de l’Amelie.

Those who are looking for more rugged terrain may want to head to the Ferme Noemie, situated a the base of the Alps. The fresh air and majestic views of the mountains are sure to impress lifelong memories upon travelers who camp in this area.
