Amazing find. This great campsite combined the quiet seclusion of wild camping with all modern facilities needed a short distance away.

We were welcomed by helpful friendly staff who spoke good English and told us to take our time and find our own pitch. Hidden in the woods, with only one other tent in view, we could even have our own campfire.

Yet in the Centre are good showers, toilets, a small shop and café. Nearby is a lovely swimming pool to cool down after a hot day visiting Paris.

With the RER only 40min away with free parking you can get to see all the sites within an hour and half of leaving your own bit of wilderness.

The site is in a quarry, so we had shade in the morning which allowed a long lie after a long evening by the campfire.

The site is well directed - don't be put off by the drive through suburban housing estate, the site is its own oasis of calm.

This was the first of 3 sites for our holiday. On arrival we were told to wander around and choose where we wanted to go. We choose a pitch in one of the many nooks & crannies that make up the site. We have a caravan & large awning and had plenty of room. The site used to be a quarry so is an interesting layout and well kept.

The toilets and shower blocks were clean and were separate for male & female which is a rarity in France and even had toilet paper even rarer!

The owner spoke excellent English and was very helpful. We had gone to watch the last stage of the Tour de France and as it was a Sunday he gave us directions on driving to and parking in Paris, in fact only 20 min walk from Arc de Triumph. We went to Chanilly which is very pretty and wandered down to the stunning chateau. We also had a day at Disneyland which was about an hours drive. We actually had booked for 4 nights and ended up staying an extra night.

We ate in the cafe area a couple of times which was good.

We all agreed that we could happily have stayed there for the whole holiday as the area is lovely.

Will we return? definitely.

This is a fantastic campsite. Really unusual. We stayed here having checked the great reviews previously, thank you.

We stayed 2 nights to enable us to go to Parc Asterix. Peaceful, beautiful, quirky and good facilities. We stayed fairly close to the facilities because with a 5 year old it's better to be nearer the loos. There were other campers but not many as it seems easter is definitely out of season.

We had a very large motorhome and some of the tracks would have been a bit tight to get down.

The owner is great and has fantastic English which really helped as my French is pretty ropey.

Chantilly is nearby and is an absolutely stunning town and Chateau. You can go through it to get to Parc Asterix which is great fun for the kids.

A lovely restful couple of nights before the drive back to the ferry at Calais which took about 3 hours from here.

Visited in largish 3 family group for 5 nights.

Really great place - highly recommended - quirky, individual pitches - campfires - very picturesque (if cool) pool.

I agree with the positive previous reviews - read them for detailed tips.

It is a large and varied site so expect to spend some time roaming when you arrive if you want to find the pitch that best suits.

Owner is lovely chap - very easy going and helpful.

My summary would be - if you don't enjoy this place then maybe camping is not for you.

My family (2 adults and 3 children aged 7, 5, 3) just got back from 10 nights at Campix, and we had a fantastic time; so much so that apart from a day out in Paris and popping to Lidl for supplies, we didn't leave the site for the whole time!

The site is a mixture of different size and shape pitches, some single pitches surrounded by trees, others in groups of 3 or 4 and a couple of larger fields of up to 12 pitches. The areas are on different levels, and some do involve some narrow/steep access ways which may challenge bigger vehicles, but there were others that were quite flat and open, particularly near the reception/toilets. The pitches themselves were pretty flat, although due to being a disused quarry, expect a few bent tent pegs!

Because of our rig and the spaces available when we arrived we picked a pitch in a large(ish) field at the far end of the site. We had loads of space and hardly any neighbours, probably because of the quarter mile walk to get to the toilets - but we didn't let this put us off, and considered it a way of keeping active.

On 2 occasions the corner of the field was used by large groups of Venture Scout/School Trip Age, but on neither occasion were these groups noisy, after dark, and were out most of the day.

My 3 boys loved the space, plenty of room for cricket and running around. They spent time every day 'adventuring' in the trees and collecting wood for the campfire (a huge hit to be allowed a campfire!). The pool was clean, although unheated (but the kids didn't seem to notice) and well kept. The park was well maintained too, with the huge slide and fort in the trees being very well enjoyed by my lot. Toilets and free showers were clean (serviced 2x a day) and at busy times they opened a second set on the other side of the building - but take your own handwash. The shower cubicles are small, but the one at the far end is fractionally bigger, so if you are showering with kids in tow, aim for this one. Water was plenty warm enough, but not hot, and the heater kept the shower room warm.

The manager spoke excellent English, and was extremely friendly and helpful, giving us great advice about transport into Paris and other things to do locally (had we wanted to go anywhere). There was a little shop, with most supplies you could need, wine, ice creams and camping gas. We ate at the cafe on the last night, the food was simple, hot and tasty, all that we needed.

There is a very easy walk from the top end of the site to Lidl - quicker than taking the car in fact, but relatively steep on the way back, so great if you are doing a small daily shop.

The town is pretty and has some interesting buildings/museum, we didn't visit these so I can't comment on the quality, but I think we would go if we go back - which if I have any say in it, we will.

I would definitely recommend this site if you don't like overly structured sites and are in the market for a more relaxed experience.

Just a great site, not to everyone's taste I'm sure.

Plus: great location, very convenient to Paris, but in the country. Friendly owner, speaks good English, very helpful and welcoming. Site is very unusual, built into an old chalk quarry. Pitches are large and varied, certainly not regimented and natural cover. Very quiet apart from trains in the distance and occasional military aircraft flying overhead. Good flat pitches in most cases. Clean facilities. Other comments about only warm water in showers are correct but perfectly adequate. Great walking and cycling directly from the site. Lidl and village shops in easy walking distance, church worth a visit. Open fires allowed creates a real, old fashioned campsite feel.

Minus: not much. Usual low current electricity, only 6A in common with many French sites, so be careful about how many appliances used at the same time. Site 'roads' are dirt tracks, quite steep in places so big units will struggle. Long walk to toilets from area G, but easily worth it for the pitches!
