I've used this site several times before it was re-modelled and I'm not sure that I like it as much now. As others have written, the automated check in / out system works well, but I felt that the motorhome bays were a little cramped for 3 large vans. On checking the prices, I discovered that for 2 people, it would only have cost 3 Euro/night more to have a traditional pitch with plenty of room. This would be money well spent.

Somewhat disappointed to find that the toilet / washing facilities had not been updated, but otherwise a great site near a beautiful town.

Brillaint site just 5 minutes walk into town and about the same to the Menin Gate.

When we arrived reception was open, when not there is an automated system as previous reviewers mention. We found motorhome hard standing fine, more than enough room for us with 3 vans to each section, all with ehu points.

Motorhome service point near barrier, loos and showers very clean and tidy. Free wifi available across the site - good signal.

The town of Ypres was much bigger than we expected, fairly upmarket with some lovely shops and cafes and of course stunning buildings - mostly rebuilt since WWII when the originals were destroyed.

As for many others our main purpose to visit was to visit the Menin Gate at 8pm for the Last Post. We were told by the helpful British Legion in town to get there nearer to 7pm if you want to see anything. We arrived at 7. 20pm and at least 700 people already there, inside the gate was packed so standing in the roads only - but you can still hear everything.

The site for us was a bargain at 15 for 2 adults with ehu.

We stayed here for two nights and found the site to be lovely and clean and really friendly.

We arrived whilst the reception was closed and so had to use auto book in, but this we easy and user friendly, and we were allocated our swipe card, for getting on and out of the site and for toilets (but we never had to use them for this)

The showers and toilets were clean and well maintained, and we never had to wait to use one.

The site is a short walk from the beautiful town of Ypres, and lots of bars and restaurants.

We would definitely use this site again.

It cost 55 for two nights for 3adults and one child, plus

Ideal site to visit Ypres just a short walk. Hardstanding motorhome pitches are VERY close together and there is a slight side slope. Pitches further into the site through a second barrier, looked bigger, had grasscrete and a water point

Toilet block next to sports ground was basic and OK, just, not a lot of water came out of the shower head, which was probably just as well as it was very hot.

Automated book-in seemed to work OK and advice is to book in advance as 3 days we stayed site was full, with majority staying for just 1 night.

Supermarket a short walk away, and there was noise from local industrial estate but it didn't keep us awake.

This site is a 5 minute walk into Ypres which has a lovely town square and a number of good bars and restaurants. Menin Gate is on the edge of town and it's a must to go while The Last Post is played (every night at 8pm). Within a short drive you can also see Tyne Cot cemetery, Passendale, Langemark and Sanctuary Wood. A great base for visiting WW1 sites.

The site itself is good. It's an automated pay system and this worked well. Facilities a bit dated, but nicely maintained. Pitched large. Quite busy with lots of British campers. Great value at 14 per camper van with EHU.

Reviewer: Wko1970 1 review from this member

Ideal site for visiting Ypres. For Motorhomes the pitches are a decent size and on block paving like hard standing. It's very good value for money and the automated check in actually worked for us. Don't forget once the machine gives you the barrier card you need to put it back in to activate.

Facilities are ok if a little in need or updating. Each Motorhomes pitch had electric hook up. There is a Motorhome service point with fresh water and waste water disposal. Chemical service point in main toilet block.

Supermarkets nearby are Aldi about 5-10 minutes walk out of site entrance then turn left. Carrefour in town centre behind Markt building is very good.

Menin gate 10 minute walk but my advice is if you want a decent position to see the ceremony get there at about 7:10pm during holiday periods. Town square with lots of restaurants etc is 15 minute walk. The little bar with a museum on the south gate isn't open every day so check its website.

Overall ideal site for lots of reasons including great first stop or last stop before crossing channel, Calias is less than 2 hours away.
