Great cheap day out
Jul 2020 • Family
Fantastic area for families with children of all ages. Lovely very clean lake, great sandy beach, not a lot of shade so take an umbrella if you require the shade. Lifeguards on duty all day and very vigilant. Cafe facilities very good with almost full bar. We had nan , grandad, young couple and 2 year old and we were entertained from 11 to 5.30. Took picnic lunch, had a walk around the lake and there were lots of paddle boards canoes and pedaloes we think for hire but we didn’t need them. Large summer school groups arrived but they were just there to enjoy the sun and facilities were kept to one end and were very well behaved. All in all a great day for any age and all for the cost of an ice cream- which were 2/3 euros each so in line with everywhere else. Loved it and will go back.

A Town of Interesting and Varied Options.

From the river walk to the historic downtown to the local beach, Gurson offers an opportunity to experience life in the Franch countryside. Swim, walk and talk with locals and soak up the culture and the history of the region.

Excellent lake
Aug 2018 • Family
Amazing place to visit. The car park is free and there is plenty of parking. The beach is lovely and very clean. The water is clear and great for swimming in. The areas for swimming are sectioned off and there is a shallow area of 1m for younger children.
Life guards are on the beach and they keep watch constantly.
Toilets are located right next to the beach and there is also a bar/restaurant.
There are also canoes that are free to use - children under 18 have to be accompanied by an adult.
If you like walking, there is a great walk around the lake where you can see the fish jumping and lizards in the undergrowth.
Would highly recommend and we will definitely go back again!

Relaxing and Refreshing
Jul 2018
This is a large picturesque lake in the heart of the countryside. There is a small sandy beach and swimming area, along with kayaks available to hire. Snacks and drinks are available and reasonably priced. If you walk around the lake there are plenty of picnic sites and you are able to relax and watch the birds and wildlife.

Not a lot to do
Jul 2017 • Family
Since it's updating the Lac de Gurson has little to offer apart from a small playground, a small beach and swimming. Unfortunately, it has lost a lot of its appeal. Disappointed.

Great day out for the family
Aug 2017 • Friends
This lake is free to access and has a sandy man made beach with play equipment, a couple of snacketeria, and plenty of shady areas. The food is pretty good and varied for this type of facility and you can buy teas and coffees, beers and wines. Dogs are allowed on a lead. It is located at the end of a long windy lane - be warned as we and others thought we were on the wrong road.

Nice stroll around the lake
Aug 2017 • Family
Lovely beach, not too crowded. Couple of restaurants, kayaks, fishing, etc. Unfortunately fishing equipment is not available to hire. Small mountain bike park, holiday chalets, camping, and a couple of rather sad-looking tennis courts. We took a walk around the lake - about 40 minutes - but not much more that interested our young adult children or us. Good place for a swim if you had no other access to a pool, and it's free!
