Take a dip in the lake

in St Barthélémy de Vals


Swimming, picnic, nap, petanque, paddle, pedal boat, concert… at the Vernets lake in St Barthélémy de Vals. A good time on this site: parking, toilets, games for children, snack and slidesparc in summer; but also fishing site (off season) or simple site of stroll.


The joys of a body of water

Swimming in a lake is great: space for everyone, sand on the beach, unchlorinated water and trees for shade all day. We set up our towel on a corner with grass and take advantage of it to relax. One is in full nature with nevertheless toilets and a small snack in season, a carpark (paying in season).

The advantage at the Vernets lake is that the swimming is supervised (in season): children are safe.
Small advice: come in the morning to enjoy your day to the fullest or to swim lengths quietly in the lake before the families arrive.

Splich, splach, splash!

Who will make the best jump? Who will climb to the top of the pyramid? Who will pass the obstacles without falling into the water? Once equipped with your vest, launch yourself at the structures and challenge yourself. One hour of fun, laughter, sliding, falling and getting back up …. But don’t worry, the water is very pleasant.

If you want to have fun but more calmly, try the paddle or the pedalo

Water park Slidesparc of 1500m² accessible to everyone over 7 years old who can swim.
Open 7 days a week from June 25 to August 31, 2022

Lots of activities

for a great day

It is possible to spend a whole day at the lake of Vernets.
One can take a nap, swim, walk around… One can also enjoy the games for children, the terrain de pétanque, picnic tables and the snack that opens in season, for a little ice cream or a waffle. In July and August, there are sometimes farmers’ markets or entertainment such as a concert (check the agenda)

I had so much fun! I wasn’t afraid to fall in the lake, the water was very good! I loved riding the inflatable pyramid and the pedal boat.
In the evening, I slept well and dreamed all night long that I was jumping on the studs. I really want to go back there.
