For Geocaching enthusiasts there are also quite some caches hidden in the area, and even one on the campsite.
If you would like to go biking in the mountainous area, E-bikes, race bikes or mountain bikes are the best option. There are no bike roads, so you will bike on the main road from village to village. For mountain bikers there are marked roads through the forests.
A map of the mountain bike trails can be bought at the reception.
Mountain bikes can be rented from Récréalle, 10 km away from the campsite. An alternative for a bike is the Segway, with which you can take guided tours. More information about Segway tours can be found at the reception of the campsite.
Fishing is possible in the river Semois, but only with a permit, and the forester comes to checks frequently. As he should do, because with the income from the permits the fish stock are maintained and more fish are added regularly.
Applying for a fish permit can be done online at www.mpw.be or at any Walloon post office.
Before the first Saturday of June you are only allowed to go fly fishing for trout, after that date you are allowed to fish on any fish species.
There is a beautiful tour of 15 km through nature. You can go to "Semois Kayak" near the bridge in Poupehan, only 1 km down the road from the campsite. Here you can join the tour on different hours during the day for the 15km tour, or a smaller 4 km tour from Poupehan to Frahan. This also includes transportation.
Do not stop on the campsite, the bushman forbids it.
