Conveniently positioned for the port of Calais, and (with a sat nav) easy to find. The Municipal site is obviously long established, and slopes upwards (from the road).
The reception is located to the right (as you drive in), and the internal roads are tarmac surfaced.
The lower half of the site is full of 'static vans' with 'visitors' in the higher reaches. The toilet/ wash facilities are (in my opinion) fair. They would have been fine when built, but there appears to be little dedication from the staff/ maintainence crew, in the the general appearance which is scruffy (toilet seats broken, poor cleaning no toilet paper etc)
The higher pitches are grassed (on a sand base) but there is obviously no attempt to cut the grass when pitches are vacated. The same principal applies to the hedges. Mostly overgrown, or alternatively the plants have died and not been replaced.
Electric posts are conveniently positioned, and there are numerous water fountains scattered around the site. Finding a water tap to replenish my tank, did turn out to be much more difficult. (I only found one tap down by the reception building)
The site does have westerly views over The Bay- but the weather was against us during our visit.
My wife and I did not find this to be an enjoyable experience, & when added to the pricing (which was extremely high), we left disgruntled. Way behind the standard at Caravan Club sites in England.
Arrived friday night for a one night stay on the way back to the Tunnel, roughly 50k away. The site was very busy, others were doing as we were. To get to the site you need to drive through the back streets of a housing estate in Arques. The site is a semi residential site with lots of static vans and sheds. The toilets in my opinion were very smelly, no flush on the urinals. The showers are very small and jetton operated. Water taps are few and far between. Lots of hot water for dish-washing etc. Some spaces are very difficult to put the van into. All in all I would give 3/10. €26 for ele, two adults, 3 kids under 13.
This is a really very nice quite site. Very clean facilities including toilets, showers, laundry, pot washing etc. Price includes shower tokens for each person although from my experience if you like a long shower or have long hair (like me) my advice is to buy an extra a couple of tokens just in case!
If you’re a camper van you get a token at reception when you check out to add 100lt’s water to your tank (if you want to carry that much!)
Each pitch is cordoned off by a hedge which is great so have “your own space”. There is a shop within approx 5-7 mins walk with good stock of food /bread /wine/beer / meat and any items you may have forgotten to pack!
Good play area facilities for the kids & plenty of room for them to play football without annoying other campers! Will definitely go back here!
