The result is a sophisticated network of campsites with well-kept bathrooms, showers, sports facilities and swimming activities. Campers are available to rent in Cahors and most of the larger cities. Tents may be purchased at any E.Leclerc or any of the other "Hypermarchés." Like hotels in the region, it is best to book in advance during July and August.
