Introduction

To preserve the beauty and biodiversity of this Jura site, Lake Vouglans is divided into three areas of activity. Port de La Saisse is to the north of the area reserved for fishing, which over the years has established an excellent reputation among European angling enthusiasts. Slightly further south, the location of Port du Meix is ideal for practising speed sports such as water skiing or jet-skiing.

And sailing fans can pursue their passion from Port de la Mercantine at the southern end of Lake Vouglans. The three ports offer around 700 moorings for hire by the day, week or even season. The many inlets around the shores of the lake are suitable for anchoring away from the ports, giving you an opportunity to explore the natural landscape from another angle.

Port de la Saisse

Created in 2004 at Pont de Poitte, Port de la Saisse is ideally located at the start of the fishing area on Lake Vouglans. The waters are full of fish, and the lake holds trout, pike and whitefish as well as zander, one of the most sought-after species.

For accommodation in the heart of nature or a tasty meal, Domaine de Surchauffant offers an authentic welcome just 10 minutes away.

The port has 131 boat moorings arranged around two pontoons. Water level must be above the 420 m mark to use boat ramp.

The port master's office is open from the beginning of May to the end of September, every day except Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10am to midday.
