Things to do when camping in Jura

A true gem of France, the department of Jura shares an eastern border with neighbouring Switzerland, while the south is home to the eponymous mountain range with majestic peaks. In the north, rolling vineyards, green valleys and charming medieval towns nestle beautifully across the landscape.

On the shimmering lakes of the department, visitors can enjoy a range of water sports as well as boating and swimming. With fresh water and soft sandy beaches, sun-worshippers can idle away under the sun despite being a long way from the sea.

The best and most picturesque lakes to visit for lazy days, shoreline walking trips and aquatic activities are Lac de Chalain, Lac de Vouglans and Lac des Rousses. Jura is also well known for its natural thermal spas, with popular options found at Salins-les-Bains and Lons-le-Saunier.

At the Cascades du Hérisson, visitors are rewarded with stunning views of a series of thundering waterfalls and rushing river torrents that plunge over 800m through a ruggedly beautiful valley. For an insight into the history and legends of the Hérisson valley, spare some time for a stop at the Maison des Cascades Visitor Centre.

Well known throughout France for its famous Benedictine Abbey, the pretty town of Baume-les-Messieurs nestles into the landscape at the meeting point of three valleys. The town is close to the subterranean sight of Les Grottes de Baume, a network of underground caves and lakes.

The extensive citadel of Besançon, a scenic town on the Doubs River, accompanies several other tourist attractions such as the Museum of French Resistance and Deportation, Musée Comtois and a natural history museum.

In the quaint town of Lons-le-Saunier, known for its Roman heritage, visitors can enjoy insightful and interesting trips to several museums before enjoying an afternoon of contemplation and relaxation at the thermal spa.

One of the highlights of a camping holiday in Jura, and indeed most holidays anywhere in France, is the chance to explore the nation’s marvellous châteaux. There are a few great examples in the department, with special mention going to the architectural spectacles at Château de Syam, Château d'Arlay, Château Pécauld, Château de Frontenay and Chateau De Cornod.

With so much to see and do in Jura, as well as acres of wonderful countryside, it’s a top department in France for a truly memorable outdoor escape. Scratch below the surface and discover all the gems of this underrated holidaying destination.
