Lake Vouglans is located on Jura’s first plateau (alt 429m) between Orgelet and
Moirans en Montagne. With a length of 35 km and an average width of 450m,
it is France’s third largest artificial lake.

The lake is divided into three zones:
Zone A, essentially for fishing.
• Zone B, reserved for “high speed water sports such as jet skiing and water-skiing.
• Zone C, the area for the more
gentle water sports such as
sailing, canoeing and rowing.

The lake has three extensive
beaches which are developed
and supervised: Mercantine,
Bellecin and Surchauffant.
