These recreational lakes in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany are located in beautiful surroundings and are perfect for a nice stay at the water during your motorhome.

You can also lay down your towel on the beach and enjoy a nice day sunbathing. Dogs are welcome at Doggy Beach and for children there is a water park where they can let off steam. After a day in or by the water, you can relax on the terrace of the beach pavilion, after which you can return to your motorhome in no time.

Camping Car Park Serre-Ponçon – France

Lac de Serre-Ponçon is a large reservoir in the Hautes-Alpes region of France. You will spend the night in the beautiful green mountains. The reservoir ensures that there are no floods and is important for the drinking water supply of the area. The village has a special history, as it has known three locations in total. After the French Revolution, the village was abandoned and the village that followed was demolished because the reservoir was built. In the lake, you can have a nice swim, for instance to cool down after a nice walk or bike ride in the area. Fishing is also allowed when you have a fishing licence that you can buy online at Carte de Pêche.
