Used this site twice as an overnight stop on our way to and from the ferry at Calais.

Nice reception on arrival. They spoke English (their choice after hearing my pitiful attempts at French!), and went through everything we needed to know about the site. We were given a small metal tag which is required to activate the showers and also operates the entry and exit barriers. We were also given wristbands in case we used the pool.

The pitches are terraced but all are flat and ours didn't require any levelling. We had water, electric and waste on our pitch and the pitches were marked by a variety of mature shrubs, giving a fair bit of privacy. They all appeared to be quite large.

Our nearest toilet block was a sort of log cabin with two each of toilets, wash cubicles, and showers. All were of a good standard and clean, with toilet roll and loo seats.

The pool was heated but quite deep. I'm 5'4' and could only just stand up, so it was too deep for a lot of children, and the paddling pool was only a few inches deep. However, it was heated, and very welcome after a days travelling.

There's a supermarket about a five minutes' drive away (reception will give directions), which also has a petrol station.

The area looks lovely and we are hoping to return for a longer stay.

Only negative is the state of the main site road- quite steep and very pot-holed.

We chose this site for 1 night on return from holiday further south. Well organised, big site with lots of facilities. We were given a choice of places - all sectioned off with privacy and seemed good generally. The staff spoke English rather than suffer my French, and were helpful. The shop/ bar/ club/ shop seemed big and well organised but the toilet facilities seemed limited for the amount of campers. Showers were limited by time, but ok. We didn't sample all the facilities but they seemed good. Location was handy for Calais/ coast. Not sure what else is nearby- seemed like a drive to nearest town.

Stopped for 4 nights in a static 3 bed mobile home as a last minute break. Access is straight off the a16 calais road, about an hr from eurotunnel.

As others have said the site ia a mix of new and refurbished or being extended under cureent owners.

Mobile home was brilliant brand new and very clean. Had a look at camping area and toilets, showers and pitches were spotless and generous in size.

The campsite is a great base from which to explore the lovely somme area, le crotoy is nice but at valery sur somme is stunning. Take the kids to amiens zoological park as its great value and brilliant for kids.

The campsite had a small kiddy pool and a mesium sized heated rectangle pool which was heated. The site also has a climving frame and swings, mini football and basketball pitch, 2 table tennis tables in the petanique area. Also are two very large trampolines and a small bouncy castle.

Small shop with basic provisions on site with a limited but tasty menu in the bar area which has table football, pool table and some indoor type racing ride.

This site is great for young kids as everything is close by but there simply wasn't enough for older children, say 8 yrs and over.

Lovely site all in all and great region to explore.

Found this site when looking for somewhere to use on the route home from another visit to Camping Le Picard in Tournieres. Site is close to the toll roads making it nice and easy to find and also making it an excellent stopping off point !

As others have said this site is clearly undergoing a lot of improvements, facilities are therefore mixed in terms of quality, Loo's in out area where first class, almost hotel bathroom style, but the showers that accompanied them where very dated, although the all worked and were nice and hot.

Pitches are very large for a French campsite, easily accommodating our twin axle caravan and full 3. 5 metre wide awning, along with the car, and still leaving space for impromptu games of badminton ! truly huge. Our pitch also had Water and electric hookup, including water drain, and as others have said a chemical emptying point, whilst the last one is handy, I'm less enthused than others as there's only one tap surely leading to people using the drinking water tap to clean the loo ! not a nice thought :)

Last observation is the site is very popular with French families, not a major issue, but there is a tendency for large groups of French teenagers to wander around the site at all hours (certainly up to midnight!), could feel threatening to some.

Would use again for a short stop over, not enough in the area to stay longer than a couple of days.

Camped here last July in our tent and said we would return as we had a great holiday in 2013. Returned this year and weren't disappointed. Improvements all round, which is difficult as it was spot on last year. Rented a static this year and had an equally good stay. Toilets cleaned regularly, revamped diner and reception, new entrance and the Poubelle, (Bin area) moved away from diner, more activities and bigger site area owing to expansion. Looking forward to 2015 already.

This site is undergoing quite a transformation - new pitches, all with chemical disposal, new studio accommodation for those without their own outfits and while we were there the diggers were constructing a new entrance and re-aligning the road to make access easier (we were told this was a first for a campsite in France). The toilets were the smartest we had encountered in France and although the showers were older the temperature was adjustable. Being out of season the facilities were limited but being an Acsi off season site it was excellent value for money. We will be back.

Tip - as the site is terraced if you are not allocated a pitch drive up to the top row of pitches (currently nos 300) and stop to chose a pitch and then drive down to it. Saves clutch wear!
