During your stay at the Dordogne La Fage campsite, you will probably want to dull your taste buds by savoring the local products of the Périgord Noir, go back in time to the prehistoric sites and reconnect with nature. If you like fishing, good news: you will find several rivers and streams near the campground to practice your activity.
CAMPING NEAR 3 RIVERS IN DORDOGNE
The campsite with swimming pool in the Dordogne La Fage is located in a preserved natural setting, less than 15 minutes by car from 3 rivers: the Turançon (5 km), the Beune (11 km) and the Vézère (12 km) famous for its magnificent valley. The Turançon river crosses the commune of Valojoulx. It attracts fishermen in search of tranquility who prefer streams to large rivers. In the region of Les Eyzies-de-Tayac (where the national museum of prehistory is located), the Beune is a stream that rises in the territory of Saint-Geniès, runs 22 km and waters Tamniès before flowing into the Vézère. The Vézère, whose valley is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, originates in the Massif Central and stretches over 200 km long before meeting the Dordogne River at Limeuil.
PREPARE YOUR FISHING TRIP IN THE DORDOGNE
In the Dordogne, three rivers belong to the public domain: the Dordogne, the Vézère and the Isle. The others belong to the private domain, and their access requires the agreement of the residents who let the fishermen enter their private property. If you enter a private property, always close the gates after you have passed through. Have your fishing card with you, don’t leave any litter in nature and respect other fishermen. Fishing in the Dordogne is authorized from sunrise to sunset (night fishing prohibited). In some areas, carp fishing is allowed at all hours. Carp courses have been set up on the banks of several rivers (Dordogne, Vézère, Isle, Dronne, Dropt, Bandiat) and in some water bodies (Miallet, Nette, Fongran, Lescouroux, Clairvivre, Saint Saud Lacoussière) Price of the annual fishing card in Dordogne: 80 € (in 2023).
