Covid-19 info.  France is back open for business again but the virus has not gone away. It could still come back. Campsites, like other accommodation providers in France, are bound by strict social distancing rules in order to prevent a resurgence, but there is no such thing as zero-risk. Still 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 mostly between 6 and 60 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.
