 Covid-19 info  French campsites are looking forward to a good summer in 2024, specially small campsites, like those in this guide, that do not accommodate large crowds of closely packed visitors. And 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 do not present any health risk.
