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.
We used this site twice on our trip, both going & returning. It is in a good location for an overnight stop. On our first arrival, we noticed the police cars just leaving the site. Fellow Brits told us several caravan & cars had been broken into during the previous night whilst their owners were sleeping & mobiles, i-pads & laptops stolen. Reading this web site, I note this happened before in June 2012. We made sure everything was locked & safe before going to bed. The first impression on arrival is that of a 1950's holiday camp due to the dated architecture. It is surrounded by housing estates & flats. The pitches, however, are generous in size, well laid out, private and level. Access is easy via the wide roads all in good condition. There are plenty of pitches to be had. We enjoyed full service facilities & Wi-Fi at no extra cost. Some caravanners complained the showers were only luke warm (we use our own on board facilities). The staff were very friendly & helpful. The town is a good 40 minutes walk & closed on Mondays. The park is well worth a visit. Restaurants are plenty & resonably priced.
The site is convenient for a break when heading South. At the moment there are 3 motorhomes and 2 caravans on site. More last night but only doing stopovers.
It's nicely laid out with hedges around each pitch. Water, drainage, and 10 amp electric on each. The toilets are adequate proper WC with toilet roll, all very clean though a little tired. Showers again very clean but tired, I had plenty of hot water but other half found no hot at all so used the one in our motor. Only one block open at the moment so can't comment on the other block. Reception good, friendly and helpful, maybe glad to have someone to talk to, her English very good too.
There is a huge Carefoure half a mile away, town centre is about a 25 minute walk and not much there that we found, but we didn't look too hard.
240 miles from Calais avoiding toll roads (courtesy of TomTom) and is very close to A26 and A4 if you prefer.
Finally free WIFI on site which I am using to do this.
