The Vouglans dam and the filling of the Ain valley with water over around forty kilometres in 1968 deeply transformed the landscape and the activities close to Moirans-en-Montagne.

The Regardoir Belvedere, located on the east side of the valley, opens onto the contemporary landscape of the Vouglans lake.

Close to Moirans-en-Montagne and directly accessible via a large parking lot, the belvedere offers two viewpoints: one with picnic tables and interpretive signs on the Vouglans lake and the dam’s history, and another located slightly lower near the restaurant with a spyglass.  

A restaurant was built on this site and a via ferrata was also added.
