All around the lake you can find a lot of different activities for kids, such as inflatable playground, carousel, springboard (jumping device with elastic hopes) between others.

The lake is used also for many nautical sports: windsurf, stand up paddle, kaiak, etc.

There are not so many trees and shadows if you want to hide from the sun, and it gets really crowded in summer.

There are places to eat a snack and one restaurant.

You can also make a tour around the lake, it takes about 45-60 minutes and offers a great view of Serre Ponçon lake at the other side as well.

In the afternoon it can get windy and chilly.

Good place for a swim, has all the facilities you need (toilets, restaurants). Got some places in the shade and a grass beach.

Take your time and contemplate the amazing nature, put on your walking shoes and go for a nice walk around a lake. It is a quiet place for couples and families....
A good place for fishing.

Being able to go for a swim and enjoy a bit of beach-style farniente in the middle of the French Alps was really a treat. The area is well equipped with lots of activities for kids and is only minutes from town. Would definitely recommend to stop by Embrun if you plan a summer trip in the Alps!

I have visited the plan d'eau in the summer and in the winter now, and loved it both times. In the summer it can be very busy but it is a great place to bring the kids - they can play safely in the water or in the playpark nearby. There are showers to help you cool off on hot days.
In the winter the plan d'eau ices over but is still beautiful and you can have an enjoyable walk around the path that loops round the lake.
FREE PARKING.
