Because all of the champagne region was full with migrant workers for the grape harvest, we stayed at this site again.

Nice pitches etc but the toilet facilities have reach such a level of neglect, with falling plaster, rotting wood work, black and grey mould that some people were refusing to pay their fees, others getting up petitions to send to Aqua-Loisirs ( the newish owners) and Camping Cheques (who inspect the site).

If you stay here, use your own facilities.

A pity because its pitches, geographical position and nearby hypermarket, make this a very useful site.

I chose this site as a convenient stopover on the way to the South of France and on the return to Calais.

As a Municipal site, I expected it to be basic, but it was better than I had thought and worth the price. The reception staff were friendly and allowed me to practise my poor French on them.

The toilet facilities were very old and tired, but adequate.

Our 1 night stop on the way south turned into an extended second day due to a problem with the car. The staff did their best to help us with our problem, allowing us to park the caravan in a spare area while a local dealer found and fixed our car, eventually allowing us to leave the site around 5pm.

There was basic food on offer on the site, but we discovered on our extended stay that there was an excellent fast food restaurant, Flunch, in the nearby shopping complex which also housed a massive Carrefour.

I would certainly use this site again as a stopover if we ever travelled this route again.

This site is ideal for a stopover. Several of the pitches have water and waste on them which is handy if you want a fully serviced pitch but have a look at them first to pick one with the taps/drain on the correct side for your caravan otherwise your hoses may not reach. These pitches do not cost any more than the other pitches. Also you will need a 2-pin adaptor for the electric hook-up.

The Wi-Fi is no longer free at this site. You pay online for the Wi-Fi depending on how long you want and how many devices you want to use.

There are two shower blocks. The showers are not great as they tend to take a few minutes to heat up. The laundry facilities are fine. The washing machine is quite large and takes a token you buy from reception.

There is a bar/restaurant on site which was open every night. The menu had a reasonable selection, the food was good, the price was reasonable and it was ideal if you didn't want to cook.

The site was great for dogs as there is a park within the site for dog walking around a lake.

There is a great boulangerie/patisserie just outside the site but you can also order bread and pastries every day at the site. There is a huge Carrefour shopping complex about a five minute drive or 15 minute walk from the site. They take Camping Cheques which makes it a reasonably priced site.

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.

The other reviews on here give an accurate picture of Chalons as an stopover site

We had an enforced stop here whilst we waited for a replacement credit card - 5 days.

This gave an opportunity to cycle along the canal into Chalons itself. There are 3 distinct, but contiguous, parks or 'jards' which are quite beautiful. The centre itself is small and compact and well worth the visit.

The town used to be called Chalons sur Marne but they changed it recently to attract tourists.

The surrounding countryside is a bit bland but good cycling

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.
