We stayed here for two nights on our way down south. The staff in reception were all very helpful and friendly - many languages spoken which was useful! There are a few shelves within the reception that provide some 'essentials' - water, beer/wine/soft drinks, tinned foods etc. You can order croissants/bread etc for the morning, although it was a shame that our croissants were a tad greasy. The facilities were clean and adequate and we were particularly impressed with the amount of bins distributed throughout the site! The snack van opened in the evening and it was great to tuck into chicken nuggets and chips after our first real venture into the country. There is a decent sized lake on the site, with plenty of room for everyone to have fun. It is manned by lifeguards at certain times which was great for the families with children. We lounged by the lake on our day off, so can't comment on the area but it was a great site to recuperate before renewing our journey.

This a great municipal site. Lots of tall trees & hedges between pitches. Good, big toilet/shower block & v clean. There's a frittes van that opens each evening doing basic food + chips. Local come to use this as well. There's a swimming/fishing lake just 100mtrs from gate which is very pretty with trees around. The staff were incredibly welcoming & helpful. You can walk into the small town & there's a small supermarket about 20 min walk away. We loved this site & wished we'd had more than 2 nights there.

Stayed for three nights on route south. This is a lovely site, very quietly positioned in woodland and we noticed lots of different birds and wildlife. Our pitch which we were able to choose for ourselves was large with all facilities and the pitches are divided by low hedging. It's a simple site with little entertainment which suits us. We thought the sanitary block adequate. Plenty of toilets and showers etc., with good hot water but there always seemed to be an over shadowing aroma of urine which I found offensive. However, would definitely visit again because contrary to other reviews, we found plenty to interest us in the area and the countryside though flat in comparison to the UK is exceptionally pretty.

Why anybody would want to stay on this site except as a stopover I'll never know, unless they wanted to fish in the nearby fishing lakes. Don't get me wrong, the site was fine, the facilities were clean and with lots of hot water, the pitches were of a good size and level and the electric was adequate. However there is absolutely nothing of interest in the surrounding area or villages, there are no bars or restaurants in Buzancy or nearby villages and only a small supermarket. The surrounding countryside is flat with huge fields and very few trees. We walked about ten miles in the countryside around the campsite and there was nothing to see, we returned and walked around the village and saw about four people, but no children.

Back at the campsite we saw big stacks of sunloungers near the showerblock, so I assume that the French go there in August to sunbathe as there is not much else to do.

It is a shame as it is a nice site in the wrong place.

First time abroad with our caravan, and so pleased we chose this site for our one week stay. Lovely site with excellent shower/toilet block as mentioned in a previous review. We were asked to choose our own pitch; some are smaller than others and more suited to motor homes or tents, but all were big enough, and each is enclosed by mixed hedging. Every four pitches shared a water tap, grey water drainage, and electrics, so very convenient. Although the site was fairly busy it was very quiet, with no noise after dark. The Hotel du Saumon in the village is open to non-residents, has a bar, and is owned by a Dutchman, who seemed to know everything about the local area; he's also an excellent cook. There are basic shops in Buzancy, and the surrounding countryside is very beautiful. Thoroughly recommended.

Stayed here for two nights. Very quiet site. Nicely laid out with good facilities. Bread can be ordered in time for breakfast each day. The owner (manager?) is called Thierry and speaks good English. But make no mistake. It's very rural indeed. There is one hotel where you can get a meal in the village of Buzancy (just over 1 km) but it was distinctly average - if that. There was another restaurant (La Terrasse) in the village of Brieulles sur Bar (c. 10km)which was pretty good, specialising in Alsatian cuisine. The site is an excellent base for visiting the WW1 battlefields, including the Ossuary at Douaumont which is well worth a visit. The only large supermarket we found in the area was a Leclerc in Verdun. Would I stay there again? Yes - it's very pleasant stop over. Not sure I'd want to stay much longer.
