/ Chamonix Camping
Camping Les Drus comes recommended, but I've never stayed there.
I have been going to this site for years. Facilities are pretty good and you are a short walk to the centre of Chamonix, Lac Gallands, Agille du Midi cable car and pubs. Helicopters landing at the hospital opposite can be a bit noisy at times though.
Les arolles, good atmosphere, and the jeckal pub just down the road
Also very pleasant owners, and if you can get the chap to talk about climbing he seems to have done a fair bit himself in the past.
Generally full of friendly climbers in the summer season too.
Hi, try les deux glaciers close to Le Bosson, stayed here twice, good facilities, on site restaurant, they'll order in bread etc for you
great views too!
