“Watery view”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

As the area is so far from the sea, this park and it's lake, suitable for bathing, is a very welcome addition to any holiday. Plenty of shady parking and opportunity to picnic or eat out.

“Who needs the seaside?”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

This is a great place for all the family, lovely white beach, backed by pine trees, It's a nice walk around the lake as well, just over an hour. Swimming is good as the water is clean and warm. Everywhere is well kept and tidy. The snack bars serve frites and burgers etc as you would expect

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Have been to La Jemaye many times and it just gets better. There is something for everyone. Beautiful lake for swimming and fishing which is patrolled by lifeguards. You can hire canoes which my son loves. There are two play parks set just back from the lake for the kids to enjoy. If you need to cool off a walk through the forest is lovely and peaceful.

There are two fast food restaurants selling crepes, ice cream, frites and drinks. There is also an a la carte restaurant overlooking the lake serving good French food at a reasonable price.

A great place to spend a day for all the family. Highly recommended.

“A secret gem.”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

It is no surprise the French locals, young and old use this area in large numbers as they know how good it is. You don't see too many English, but only because they don't know about it.
The walks are good for all ages. For the young there are exercise structures of various types, ie, chin ups, sit ups etc spaced out as you walk through the nature trail. There are hides for you to watch the wild life, this includes turtles during the right dates. The trail itself is easy going, pleasant and interesting.
There is a fair sized beach used for sports and swimming with volley ball and loungers. Fishing though I have no information regarding licenses and day permits. Free Kayaks with buoyancy vests supplied. You need to get there fairly early if you want to use one of the picnic tables as the French love to eat here and will set up at a atble for the day.
There is a large restaurant / bar, a few cafes and bars. Clean toilets, lots of parking and more walks that I haven't tried yet.
A sensible one way system in and out keeps the traffic seperated on the narrow roads.
This is an ideal place for a family to spend a day in good weather.

“Lovely easy walking”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

This is a very popular amenity for good reason. There is plenty of parking, a clean sandy beach at the lake-side, play areas for children and decent snack meals available. But the beauty of it is that just a few minutes walk gets you into the lovely quiet woods, no feeling of crowds, just totally peaceful. In fact we walked all the way round the lake, a distance of several miles, and after the first few minutes we saw no-one. There is a well-positioned hide to watch birds, and the paths are clearly way-marked. And actually, although the beach area can be a little crowded it is lovely to see whole families out enjoying the simple pleasures of sand, water and woodlands.
