    I can't help either but welcome to the fun. (y)

    We came back through northern France last year at around the same time and did not find a huge amount open.

    You could try looking for a site that's open near a municipal pool. Most French campsites have outdoor pools.
    Only one I can think of is a site called l'hermitage in the Loire-- the indoor municipal pool is just across the road.

    Maison lafitte is open all year but no pool. Easy for Paris though.

    We stay at Maison Lafitte during the summer a great site on the banks of the Seine and a 15min walk to rail station then 20 to 30 mins into Paris. (y)

    We're off on the 7th for a week in the same area. It is a lovely coastline, one missed out by so many but used a lot by the French, and we will be staying certainly 1 night at Etretat you have a choice of Aire or Camping site next to each other. Apart from walking the dramatic cliffs, eating and drinking there isn't a great deal to do. There is a great golf course there. I think you may struggle a bit to find an 'all dancing' site with pools open. The other option would be to look for towns with a leisure centre. Places like Dieppe and Le Touquet. I see that the Aqualud in Le Touquet is only open Saturday and Sundays in October. Enjoy
