Visited the site for the last 2 weeks in August. Unlike some members, we did secure the lakeside pitch we had paid-for and the setting was very good, especially as we were on the quieter side away from the swimming beach. Pitch size we found adequate for a 7.5 metre caravan and awning with good water/drainage on the pitch. Access to the pitch was very tight, with sharp turns and many obstructions from parked vehicles and vending stalls on the already narrow roads. Sanitary blocks a long walk away and were stretched initially and not particularly clean. This improved as the site got quieter. Good shop on site and staff we found very friendly and helpful. The lakeside location is clearly the main feature of the site and ideally suits those who prefer to "stay-put" and enjoy the lake. As a sightseeing base the site is too far to the west of the main attractions of the Tarn Gorge area and you find yourself driving 1 - 2 hours each way to visit anywhere from Millau eastwards. The latter drawback means that we would not return to the site.
