A really first class site in one of the most beautiful yet lesser known areas of France and situated a short distance from the centre of the lovely old town of Kaysersberg.
As previous reviewers have said, Camping Municipal Kaysersberg has excellent toilet and laundry facilities, good sized level pitches, plenty of shade, flowers everywhere and smooth asphalt site roadways. Nearly every pitch has direct access to electricity, water and drainage. Bread is delivered everyday and the whole site has free wi-fi connection. All this for a little over twenty euros per day in high season - plus, if you stay for eleven days or more, one night is free!
The site is managed by a very helpful, English speaking young couple who maintain everywhere to a high standard.
There are a number of 'Plus Beaux Villages de France' in this area of Alsace - Riquewihr, Hunawihr, Eguisheim - but there is hardly a village or town nestling among the green velvet vineyards that doesn't have lovely old houses or a beautiful church. To say 'old' is perhaps a little misleading because this area was severely damaged during the last war and many of the buildings, particularly in Kaysersberg, have been carefully restored.
We used two restaurants in Kaysersberg and would recommend both - the excellent 'Veille Forge' and the cheaper but livelier 'Roger Hassenforder'
The nearest large town is Colmar (a distance of about ten kilometres) and although there is much urban sprawl on the outskirts the centre is an architectural delight and well worth a visit.
Confirm reviews from previous years. Site is every bit as good as reviewed and if possible even better. Flowers everywhere, sanitaires immaculate, attention to detail obvious in every sector. Compliments to 2 young people in office for offering an exceptional site. Our pitch along with most others had own water, own waste, and these couldbe plumbed if you had the necessary bits and pieces. Local pool just round corner, and a crackin' CORA minimart 5 mins walk, had everything at bargain prices. Wine shop 2 mins adjacent to local Indian resto, and Bretonne creperie if you wanta bit of variety.
Keysersberg village is a bit of a walk, but loads of parking if you need to take the car. Local delicacy is carp/frites, best enjoyed at L'Arbre Vert in town rather than cafe at Hachimette.
Whole area, route de vin, Voges mts, Colmar, river Rhine offers plenty to see and do.
We stayed here for 7 nights and really enjoyed being there. The site is very clean and has good toilet, shower and washing facilities. Booking almost a necessity with reconfirmation the day before arrival. One day notification of departure also required. Large size pitches, many delineated by well kept hedges. Site is grassy but with a tendency to have bald patches through frequent use. Free WiFi with a strong signal. Well placed for cycling to Kaysersberg or to the local supermarket on the designated track. Friendly & helpful staff (Marilyne et Stéphane). Reconfimation via SMS text to 00 33 6 77 96 97 10 if no other means practical on day before arrival.
Would highly recommend and return again. Security barrier for all entry of vehicles and reception closed 12-2pm is only downside to arrival.
We first stayed at this site about 12 years ago and remembered it as well organised, clean and cheap.
It is all of the above! The toilets and showers are impressively clean and hot water is plentiful. The site is alongside the river and pitches on that side have the noise of the water which can be intrusive after rain.
Pitches are large and most have water and waste within a few yards. Standard electric is 8amp with 12amp available for an extra charge.
Be aware that you cannot book in over lunchtime 12-2pm and must wait at the entrance.
There are several marked walks from the site ( some quite strenuous) and Kaysersberg is a 15 minute walk along the riverside path, which is also cyclable.
There is a small Intermarché close to the centre and a much larger supermarket nr Mulhouse or Houssen.
A short walk (5 mins) from the site there is a small general store which has bread etc. The town has a good selection of restaurants.
Handy for visits to Eguisheim, Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr.
