Le Petit Bois Campsite

We took over Le Petit Bois campsite as a family in October 2019.
More than a business project, this is a whole way of life. We wanted to develop the campsite to meet the needs of visitors looking for an authentic holiday experience close to nature.

Our vision for Le Petit Bois campsite

We both come from a camping background. We were working for a huge outdoor holiday accommodation business that seemed to have lost sight of the simple values of camping and community. So, in 2019 we decided to buy this little campsite and turn it into holiday accommodation that reflected our philosophy, which we could develop in line with our beliefs.

Le Petit Bois campsite is a small campsite with less than 50 pitches set in just over a hectare. Situated at the edge of Camors National Forest, it’s the perfect place for nature lovers. The terraced campsite is south-west facing, so guests benefit from the Breton sun for much of the day.

At the foot of the campsite, Camors National Forest extends to 650 hectares. It is full of interesting features and heritage sites. You can go on a search for standing stones (the Bihan and Braz standing stones are both over 3 metres high), follow the little stream uphill until you reach the “Fontaine des Sabotiers” or try to find the remains of the old château.
Camors forest is a natural site that is preserved, managed and protected by the ONF (Office National des Forêts, French National Forestry Office).

Walks and activities

Le Petit Bois campsite is also the starting point for themed walks and mountain bike trails through the forest. These include the water trail, the star trail and the Tro Bourk trail.

The GR38 trail, which starts in Douarnenez in Finistère and goes as far as Redon in Ille-et-Vilaine, also passes through Le Petit Bois.
In 2020, we added an accommodation option specially designed for hikers and cyclists who wanted to stop off at our campsite: the Bambou tent cabin.

Also in 2020, Le Petit Bois site (on which the campsite stands) reopened its treetop adventure course under the name “Ludana”. The park offers different courses through the trees to suit all abilities, as well as laser tag and bungee jumps from its 25-metre-high tower!!

Line fishing enthusiasts keen to share their passion with their children can catch trout, carp and tench in Le Petit Bois lake. You can buy a fishing permit in Baud (Bar tabac « le Kfé Kool » and the shop « Point vert » ) or online at www.cartedepeche.fr.

As the campsite is less than 1 km from Camors village centre, you also have easy access to local amenities (bakery, grocer’s shop, butcher’s shop, pharmacy, bar & tobacconist’s shop, creperie, pizzeria and post office). Also, the local farmer’s market is held on Fridays from 4 pm to 7 pm in the church square.

Then there’s Camors’ excellent multisport site, which is a combination of a skate park and a trail bike park. Roller-skating, skateboarding, scooter and BMX enthusiasts will all have a fantastic time here!!!

Last but not least, genuine artisan cider fans will love the Cidrerie de Kerniel, which offers a wide range of products made with orchard fruit.

Come and recharge your batteries in a haven of peace and quiet surrounded by nature, where the environment is respected.

If you enjoy quirky holiday accommodation, we suggest our western-style caravan or Finnish kota (which looks like an elf house but is deceptively large inside!).
If you prefer to sleep under canvas, in 2020 we added 3 tent lodges and a small tent cabin (specially designed for hikers, cyclists and couples who want to stay somewhere a bit different).

We also have wooden-clad mobile homes that blend nicely into the wooded environment.
And our chalets range from a simple but practical 5-person chalet to a luxurious, top-of-the-range model.
Of course, if you’re an out-and-out camper, you’ll find plenty of comfortable, shady areas to set up your tent, caravan, motor home or camper van.

Whether you're travelling with family, friends or as a couple, Le Petit Bois campsite has the perfect accommodation for you.

The campsite features a sanitary block, a covered swimming pool and a communal marquee where you can eat your breakfast, lunch or dinner and where themed evenings, games, etc. can be organised in July and August.
An activity area has been set up for our younger guests to play board games or cards, and even borrow them for an evening!
There’s also a library area where you’ll find all kinds of novels, comic books for all ages, non-fiction books, books for young children and more.

We look forward to welcoming you to our campsite from 19 April 2024.

See you soon
