This wasn’t our first choice of site on our trip back North as our regular site was full. The site is set in the local park by a river. We arrived on a very dull cool evening so it didn’t look very pretty. Word of warning about the entrance – it does display a no entry sign at the gates so we drove past thinking there was another entrance. Half an hour and tour of the local countryside later we discovered there wasn’t. The no entry sign it actually says underneath no entry for Lorries or twin axle caravans and it was the correct entrance for the site. Check in was easy and the staff spoke good English. The site was very full as it was peak season and the day the Tour de France had been through Epernay. We had booked about a week before and got a pitch right at the back of the site overlooking the bottling plant and the road which is one of the least attractive. It didn’t bother us too much as we were only there for the night. If you are staying longer, you might consider asking for a pitch overlooking the river. These pitches have an attractive view and are more peaceful. The site was very close to Epernay town- within walking distance if you don’t mind a good stroll and as mentioned in other reviews there is large Carrefour just 5 minute’s drive away. Someone had put 10 minute’s walk but I would add another 10 at least to that. The villages and some major champagne houses are very close by so a good spot for touring the area. All the pitches are grass and some are a little overgrown and run down looking as are some of the vehicles parked in them. There are waste and fresh water points at regular intervals but the electric points can be quite spaced out between the pitches so be prepared. The washing and washing up facilities were clean but basic – bars at the window etc. Plus points of this site- cost, location and the on-site restaurant which is a converted boathouse by the river. The food was plentiful, tasty and reasonably priced. Everything was available for take away as well. The house champagne was lovely as it should be given the region. Negatives –we were kept awake until 2-3am by a large group of Belgian boys in the pitch behind us. I did go and complain to security but nothing was done. It’s not a pretty site- if the weather had been good and we’d have been sitting outside- I wouldn’t have enjoyed our view. All in all it was OK and got the job done. But we wouldn’t rush back.

We have just arrived back from staying 3 nights here. Fantastic campsite, very friendly staff and a great location. As other reviewers have said, the pitches are divided up by hedges and bushes etc. Our pitch was in a very nice quiet area, not far from the water pump, the toilet and shower block and the electrical hook up point was on the pitch next to us. We used the restaurant/snack bar on site on our last night and it was lovely. The lady there was extremely friendly and helpful. Was nice and relaxing sitting next to the lake enjoying a glass of champagne and eating pizza- which I have to say went down a treat with me and my family!

The toilets and showers could maybe do with a bit of a face lift, as they were looking a little tired but they were reasonably clean and for the price you pay can’t really grumble. Would definitely go back to this campsite and for first time campers in France would highly recommend. We walked into the town Epernay which was beautiful, about a 20-25 minute walk. Only mistake we made was not visiting Avenue de Champagne as unfortunately we did not know it was there until we got back! So if you do want to visit the champagne houses and take the tours then make sure you find out where this is or ask about it beforehand

This was our first experience of municipal camping in France, and I guess it was just as expected. A little bit less cared for than club sites but if you were prepared to put up with a bit of rough round the edges then perfectly acceptable. There is no doubting the location is excellent and Epernay and surrounding towns and villages are wonderful. The piste cyclable was not fully open when we went but once it is getting about without a car should be easy. There is a lot of heavy traffic rumbling through the area but that may have been due to the amount of development going on. The on site police presence may put some people off but I found it rather comforting. Would not put us off using municipal sites in the future.

Large pitches well maintained and with privacy. Easy access to water, electric etc. Toilet block kept clean. 20 minute walk into Epernay and a 2 minute drive to a large Carrefour (with fuel). Staff at reception very helpful and friendly. Really nice cafe/bistro on site alongside the river. Boat and canoe hire on site too. Really good site with loads to see in the local area being in the heart of Champagne producing country.

We had decided not to book sites (except for our first night) of a tour of Champagne and Burgundy regions and just go with the flow. We wanted a location that would mean a shorter drive to Calais. We found the site from an internet search and just turned up. The site was very busy but the english speaking man in reception was very friendly and found us a pitch. The pitch was well maintained and plenty big enough for our van and daughter's pup tent. The electric hook up units were not in each pitch but on power units scattered about the site. Unfortunately our lead was not long enough to reach, but the reception man was kind enough to lend us an extension. The facilities were very clean. The cost per night was very reasonable at €27 including EHU. Would certainly stay here again.

Spent 4 nights in total at this campsite in July. 2 on the way down to the Alps and 2 on the way back.

Very nice site with very helpful staff. We booked in advance but people were coming and going all the time so may not be necessary.

Big, pivate pitches with some having a lovely view of the river. Plenty of trees for shade.

Adequate toilets (take your own toilet roll) and free showers. We went at a very busy time of year but never had to queue for the facilities. Big play area for children.

On site bakery for croissants, bread etc. Also a snack bar, although we never used it.

Cycle path from the campsite along the river to either a big Carrefour or carry on into Epernay which was a lovely town with plenty to see.

Can highly recommend this site :)
