Camping Municipal Joigny

FrancePosted by normanbaker Wed, August 29, 2012 16:47:08

We discovered this superb municipal site by accident. Our aim was to cycle along the Burgundy Canal from Migennes, where the canal joins the river Yonne and we had hoped it would have been possible to cycle from Migennes to Joigny, along the river Yonne.

Though technicaly it would have been possible to cycle along the main road to Joigny, we discounted this, as it is a reasonably busy main road and we equally discounted the minor roads route, as this according to the locals necessitated a climb out of Migennes, Bradley Wiggins we are not.

So we made the short trip to Joigny which is a very attractive riverside town on the Yonne. The medieval town can be toured easily in half a day and has a good selection of restaurants and shops.

The real gem is the campsite which is along the riverbank with secluded pitches, water and drainage nearby, electricity, a modern and scrupulously clean sanitary block, a dedicated motorhomeservice point and free wi fi all for the princely sum of 8 euros. I also have to add that there was also a very friendly welcome.
