campsites are looking forward to a good summer in 2021, specially small
campsites, like those in this guide, that do not accommodate large
crowds of closely packed visitors. Campsites, like other accommodation
in France, are bound by strict
social distancing rules to prevent a resurgence, but there is no such
zero-risk. Yet overall, the smaller the campsites, the less people
there will be, so the lower the risks will be too. Besides, smaller
campsites, particularly those that
are family-run, have a huge interest in making sure they remain
virus-free, as their very survival could depend on it. With less than,
and in most cases considerably less than, 100 pitches, many of the
campsites listed on Rural Camping France are in rural locations
where the virus never showed up even at the height of the pandemic.
