From the campsite Auvergne, on foot, by bike or with a stroller, you will take the street along the Tartaret volcano and reach directly the “Murol Beach” or large beach in only 15 minutes. By the time the beach towels are laid out and the most rushed ones will already be in the water or making sand pies. If you want an ice cream or a refreshment, to play basketball in the city park, to picnic, to fish or to rent a pedal boat, everything is planned for you. If you want to go for a walk, the tour of the lake is done in an hour (3.5 km), by the wooden pontoons which will allow you to observe the fauna and flora of the marshy areas. The green lane also allows you to reach the village of Murol, the paths of the Tartaret volcano (957m) or the village of Chambon-sur-Lac. Want to get taller? The Marais tooth, a rocky needle overlooking the lake, offers a magnificent view of the Sancy. Expect a 2-hour hike (7 km) with a steep but short climb. Parking spaces allowing you to access the lake are free.
At Chambon Lake, your children will be in paradise, and will enjoy a refreshing swim. Imagine a volcanic eruption 8,000 years ago, that of the Tartaret volcano, which blocked a river called Couze Chambon: this is the explanation of the formation of Lac Chambon, a natural dam lake. Located at an altitude of 866 metres, it has an area of 60 hectares, is shallow and dotted with islets. Ideal for swimming thanks to these two equipped beaches (and supervised in July and August), you can enjoy the joys of idleness in an exceptional natural environment. The site was awarded the Blue Flag in 2018, a label attesting to its exemplary environmental quality. As you will have understood, staying at Chambon Lake will be an opportunity for the whole family to enjoy a relaxing moment with their feet in the water.
