Never heard of it, but just looked it up on google earth and viewed 34 photos. Looks a nice lake and I notice mh's parked up by the lakeside.

We have wildcamped there a couple of times on our way back from Spain. There is a campsite with a service point for motorhomes (I think)
We stopped right on the lakeside GPS 43.64479, 3.37445 on the south side of the lake, also saw other campers parked on the west side of the shore as well. Found the best way for us to get there from Clermont l'Herault was along the D156 & turn before the village (a really tight turn but I managed in a 7 metre motorhome) The other road from the campsite (the way Tomtom took us) had a dip in the road that clipped the bottom of the van. Our van is quite low & has quite a good overhang so not a problem if you have plenty of ground clearance at the back.

It seems to be quite windy there, we got out in our inflatable canoe & only lasted a short time before we had to get off the lake. They have a siren warning everybody to clear the lake if the planes they use for firefighting are collecting water, this happened a few times so not sure if they were just practising.

been there verry narrow roads verry poor parking unless on a camp site which did not look any inprovement
a rough looking place typical of a place for locals
you would be better off at traveling the extra hour to the beach road between sete and agde right on the med

There is a new road going to Sette & there is an aire which we stayed at this year. It looks like it might be a pay one but there was nothing about charges when we were there in April. It was our first time we had been there & it looks like the old road which runs along the beach is now a cycle path. Nice place but I can see it getting very crowded this time of year.

Wildcamping at Lac Sagalou is ideal for windsurfing /canoeing, you need to be stocked up with water/food as we didn't find anywhere close.
