I booked this site because it was close to the beach and fairly remote from any large towns.
We were the only British car in the camp site. The majority of campers are Dutch or German (most things are translated into German in the area as well). All the staff could speak excellent English though so no problems there.
The entrance to the camp site wasn't obvious from the road. You turn off down a side road, drive past the mini-market, and carry on driving down for around 100 yards to get to the camp site. You have to pass another camp site (opposite the shop) which makes it a bit confusing.
The entrance to the campsite is controlled by an electric gate which is locked at night. There is also a car park before the entrance where you can leave the car. Most of the time we went to places by bike (even the kids) so didn't use the car once. The site is very children friendly
Around half of the camp site has static caravans, the rest are for touring. Out of these around 6 were tents, a very small minority.
The pitches are in small fields with beech hedges as dividers. We could pick our pitch when we booked, although I only had a choice of 5 as I had booked quite late.
All the pitches are completely flat, and have one electric hook up, with water taps being one or two pitches away.
The toilet facilities were excellent, kept spotlessly clean. The showers were very large, and had three hooks behind most of them. You were charged 50c for 6 minutes of water, which was fine for me. There were small basins with showers attachments for babies, and indoor and outdoor dish washing facilities.
The two washing machines were operated by coins you bought from the reception. You have to book a slot first though through the folder in the washing room. Everyone seemed to keep to this rule. The days got booked up quickly in advance.
The playground was lovely. There were lots of things for the children to play on. It is in a sand area, so my kids took off their shoes to play in there as did most of the other kids. They also have a bouncy pillow which seemed to work for an hour at a time.
There is an unheated swimming pool which we used a few times. Very cold to start with but once you're in it's OK. Has a shallow area for toddlers and sun beds around the edge, along with a shower.
There is a café which you can eat at or take away. We had a take away the first night, and ate there on the last night. Basic food but good. We had some fun trying to work what the food was, mainly fried food with chips.
The supermarket up the road does a good range of food, there is a supermarket in Burgh Haamstede but doesn't seem to stock much more than this shop.
The camp site is not far from the sea, also from the exhibition on the dams (not worth it for the money though). We rode to Zierekzee one day for lunch and rode back again. Lovely cycle lanes everywhere make it so easy. We ate at the Windmill in Burgh Haamstede twice (pancake house), the restaurant grind their flour in the windmill, and you can watch them cook the pancakes inside.
Large site with pitches situated in small enclaves amongst high hedges. Toilet / showers facilities brand new for the season and plenty of piping hot water. Washing machines / tumble dryer available for €5 but spin dryers and iron are free to use. Also plenty of dish washing facilities. A small outside swimming pool in the centre of the site alongside a fair size children's playground that included trampolines, sandpits etc.
There is a cafe / bar on site which served good quality food at very reasonable prices.
No supermarket on site but there is one at the end of the lane, a few minutes cycle or walk away. The site was extremely quiet and peaceful and there are 2 ponds on site to walk around. Wifi and cable tv both available from reception.
The village is about 10 minutes by bike. Several bars / cafes and a really good SPAR that sells fresh breads / cakes etc.
