Stopped for 2 nights on tarmac area, had to use chocks as slight slope, You are given a swipe card for entry/exit and for the showers/toilets. Clean and tidy site within a 15 minute stroll to town centre. Some noise at night from industrial unit nearby. E34 for 2 nights including ehu. Use again? For its convenient location to Ypres, yes.

Stayed for a week, ideally situated for Ypres town an surrounding area- only 10 minute walk to Menin Gate. Automatic check in caused a problem as it would not recognise my details and had to wait until reception to sort it, don't open for long. Basic site, but everything there. Unfortunately had to use a doctor whilst there but reception didn't know local doctor, she looked on Google and directed us to an orthopaedic surgeon for a sore throat, he at least knew of a GP. Overall enjoyed week and superb for biking

A lovely site which was very clean and well cared for and there is a supermarket close by. It is about a 15 minute walk into the town centre, the Menin Gate, the Museum, restaurants etc. The site is also only a short drive away from the WW1 battlefields of the Ypres salient and CWG cemeteries. There was a little noise from the industrial works close-by, but it didn't disturb us too much. We would use this site again.

Camping Jeugdstation, Ypres

This site was easy to find on the outskirts of Ypres. The reception has limited opening hours and they have a self check in machine. Make sure you have with you your pre booking form (if you pre booked) and a credit card (I think it takes cash as well). The process was fiddly, but it worked. I didn't see my pitch allocation on the machine and pitched where I wanted. Had the site been full that night I might have been made to move.

The pitches (22) have a plastic base with grass growing through (motor homers have hard standing 18). There is also a field for tents.

The facilities are very clean although showers are variable. The middle one of the ladies is the best.

There is WiFi at reception, but we used the WiFi at Vivaldi's café in Ypres. We were there for 4 nights and one of the nights was full so I recommend pre booking.

A very nice site only a 10 minute walk from Ypres centre.

I visit this site on a regular basis enroute to other parts and it suits me fine

Members should be made aware that the detail is in the name translated as youth stadium

It is similar to a French municipal set up to cater for Belgium youth, its also handy for others not so youthful like me

This is why the shower block is like a school changing room and the sports field and play park are where they are behind it

At any time expect a teacher to take the class to the park, or a troop of belgian scouts or youth group to arrive on the camping field as they explore the town

I agree this is not a traditional campsite, most campervans use it as a one night stopover and are lined up in le mans start fashion

The large tent/caravan part is not the best but the traditional tent field is fine because that is the sites origins hence no cars on the grass users were expected on foot bicycle or motorcycle hence the gap to get round the barrier, and costs a few euros

I agree the staff sometimes seem weary of campers expecting something different

Perhaps with time it will evolve but it is what it is a youth stadium run by the town

Stayed here over two one night stays whilst touring the area.

It was busy on both occasions and had we not booked over the internet in advance, we wouldn’t have got a pitch. The self-check-in was easy to follow, I would have preferred to pay by cash, but this wasn’t an option.

The pitches were ok in size and based on grass growing through matting, which made it easy and fairly level. There weren’t enough facilities to cater for the number of campers and on both occasions I had to queue for the showers/toilets that were a bit dated/unkempt.

The location was good with a level 15 min walk to the Menin Gate and the centre of town. There was also a dog walk off through the back of the site. It’s not the quietest of sites, during our midweek stay there was a fair bit of industrial noise and at the weekend, there is a club/bar which had loud music until about midnight. We used the site on the second occasion to have the dog passports updated at the nearby English speaking vet; Dierenartsenpraktijk 'De Gouden Poort'; very reasonable 40 euros for the appointment that covered both our dogs.

Overall, if visiting the area again, I’d use the site as it was fairly priced and conveniently located.
