Arrived at about 5pm and we hadn't booked so were very glad to get a pitch. Staff at reception were very helpful. The site was almost full and unfortunately our pitch was a very long way from an electric point. We couldn't hook up and reception couldn't lend us an extension. The toilet facilities are very dated and in need of some decoration. The pitches are spacious and there was easy access to water and drainage facilities. The snack bar was open but that too was a bit run down. It is mostly used for overnight stays and it is probably fine for that. I don't think it deserves it's 4 star rating.

This site was very difficult to find without a satnav. The non specific 'camping' information type signposting was few and far between and in the end we found this site with a lot of guesswork and some luck thrown in. It it hadn't been so late we would have given up and gone elsewhere ; we were only stopping overnight.

Once found, the site is pleasant enough with good access roads and large, level hedged emplacements on gravel. Electric hook up and water was close to the pitch with central points serving several pitches.

The toilets were clean as were the showers but were rather on the basic side.

The water fill point we were told to use for filling our water tank was the same hose as that used for the chemical disposal point - not at all a good arrangement. However, with water close to the pitch this need not be an issue.

There is a small bar / snack bar on site which we did not use ourselves but did see that they were doing takeaway food.

About 5 minutes walk from the site there is a Boulangerie and within a 15 minute walk there is a shopping complex with a very large Carrefour (with petrol station) and several chain restaurants which we found really useful.

A plus for us was that the site accepted Camping Cheques thereby making it a good value overnight stop.

The architecture on the site is a bit tired and not worth the 4 stars that are claimed but it is a very nice site.

The pitches are large and flat, the roadways throughout are excellent, smooth and well drained, making it very easy to enter and leave the pitch.

The showers have seen better days but are clean and spacious. The water is hot and unlimited ( we only used them in the morning)

The free wifi extends to almost every part of the site, and the people on reception are extremely pleasant.

The enormous Carrrefour has cheap petrol, and the boulangerie on the main road by the campsite makes beautiful bread. ( try 'un festival' instead of 'une baguette')

As they accept Camping Cheques for the entire season there seems no reason to moan about prices, They even do 3 nights for 2 cheques.

Having tried other sites in this very sparsely camping populated area (Laon, Epernay etc) I would choose this one every time

Lovely site, easy to find as signposted well as you reach the town, jsut 15 minutes from the motorway so ideal for a stop over. We didn't book but there seemed plenty of room despite a large music festival in full swing in the town. Not a large site, which suits us, compact and easy to access all facilities. Good sized grassy pitches, level and with trees throughout for shade. Showers and toilets are looking a little on the tired side but functional and clean. Plenty of them too. Communal games room and TV room for the kids and beside a lake. Bring your boules as a sandy boules pitch with lighting available too. Very close to a large supermarket/shopping mall and nice local boulangerie at the end of the drive way though you could order bread etc. For breakfast to collect on site. A small shop on site and bar / restaurant. We ate here for convenience - it was OK reasonably priced, but nothing special. Staff seemed very helpful and friendly and reception full of ideas of local sites to see and things to do. Definitely would come back and use as a base if visiting this area.

We have stopped over at this site on a number of occasions over the years. During that time little has changed and as other reviews note the toilets have always begged for some tender loving care, but are serviced with ample hot water, at least the ones between pitches 114 and 138 do. The staff are friendly and helpful and invariably speak English. The hard standing pitches are fine with shared hook-ups and hedges kept trimmed as is the surrounding grass. It must be noted that this a Municipal site which is maybe why it is so well signposted from both the east and the west.

It is only a short drive into Chalons which has some good restaurants. Try Comptore de la Licorne in Place de Marchal Foch, sitting outside you can also watch the world pass by.

If it is champagne you want visit the village of Cramant and try the produce of Champagne Guiborat Fils at 99 rue de la Garenne. You will note what champagne should taste like.

We are tent campers and have used the municipal site at Chalons en Champagne numerous times over the past 10+ years, mainly because of its convenient distance from Calais. At first we sang the praises of the site but now sadly find ourselves needing to be critical. The Reception staff are, on the whole, polite and the pitches are still good but the cheerful little café is now a shadow of its former self. We stayed there in June and were subjected to barely lukewarm water for a shower in one of the two shower blocks, where, incidentally, cobwebs could be seen. I had to dress again and walk to the other block where I did eventually get hot water but noticed cracked and missing tiles. We timed the hot water in the former (our nearest) block for washing up and found that it lasted for 9 seconds before turning cold! The positioning of the electric hookups also requires upgrading, as now antiquated plinths serve numerous pitches.

Unfortunately, as the standard has decreased, the price has increased and we paid 23.60 Euros per night on what still claims to be a 4 star site. We often use municipal campsites rated as only 2 star on our travels and find them to be value for money and of a good standard of cleanliness. Next year we will be checking our camping books for an alternative site.
