This is a large campsite with adjacent block type accommodation.

The Campsite is used by tanks, caravans, motorhomes and everything in-between.

There are the usual Eurocamp, Canvas and other camping companies on site also. There is a good mix of units and nationalities around the campsite.

Staff generally speak several languages well - this was very useful as I can get by in French but that's about it.

There are several pools, but I found that the sunbeds filled up VERY early in the morning (with towels) and these didn't appear to be moved on by the attending staff.

Some of the pools have slides and these were thoroughly enjoyed by my kids.

There is a good range of shops (grocery, pharmacy type, souvenir etc) and prices are fairly reasonable.

Washrooms and wash up areas are good with plenty of hot water and I only had to queue for a couple of minutes once in 10 days.

Toilet roll is provided (until it runs out) but there is no soap at any wash hand basin, so you'll need to remember to take your own.

My only bug-bear about the wash up areas was that there were no plugs for the sink - so water usage was much higher than necessary.

There's a bar and takeaway - bar drinks were ok-priced as was the takeaway, but having used the takeaway once, I didn't again as the quality wasn't great. There's a great pizza takeaway outside the campsite (about 3 mins in a car) near to a lovely restaurant - much better quality foods and less hectic

The pitches are around 80m metres square or more and surrounded by hedges to give a little privacy. The hedges are immature though so they;re easy to walk through. However, although the pitches are of a good size there are trees all over the place - we had 2 in our pitch and they obstruct the use of the space a lot. I'd suggest talking to someone about the amount of clear space you need before you book. We couldn't have comfortably put up our gazebo as well as our large tent. Some of the pitches were very large though.

The location was great - about 15 mins from a brilliant beach (St Aygulf) and easy for day trips to Italy, Monaco, Cannes, Nice etc

There is road noise from the adjacent A-road which goes through the night, but a lot of campers were fairly noisy until the early hours - site management really should do something about the curfew - as there doesn't appear to be one, although the site rules say there are.

I would happily go here again, but it's a bit of a hike down through France and about 100 in tolls if you use the motorways. But once you get there, it's well worth it

Stayed here end of July/start of August after drive down from Calais. Fantastic site, loads to do. Pitches are huge, private, tree lined. They are quite dusty though. I was worried that the 6A EHU would be problematic, but it never tripped once despite kettles, fone chargers, fans, hairdryers all in use. Slight niggle was that the fully serviced pitch had a poor quality, aged tap which leaked too much to support my continuous water feed device, so I ended up filling aquaroll as usual. The multiple pools are large and lovely and the sports facilities are really impressive. Access to the pools is not allowed before 9am and reserving sunloungers is not allowed, to the point that the lifeguards can and do remove towels from unoccupied ones to free them up; personally I like this as it is fair to all. Though speedos are officially required, this rule was not enforced and most males were in board shorts happily. Toilet blocks are large and appear to be cleaned all day long. Push button showers, in one or two cases, don't stay on long, but otherwise excellent. Barbeques were prohibited on site, but vast majority of people were using CADAC or similar without a problem. The on site shops are really good, as were the bars and restaurants. Location allows easy drives to St Tropez, Cannes, Nice, Monaco etc, and Frejus itself is a lovely little port with excellent shops, bars and restauarants. Do go to La Baume if you want a lively, multinational site. Dont go if you want peace and quiet, lots of Brits and hardstanding.

We will be booking again

Drove here at the beginning of the schools summer holidays and didn't leave till the end of August, so I can honestly say that my family and I loved it.

Plenty to do on site, most days we never saw the Kids as they were busy playing in the pools. Entertainment is the usual fun/cheesy stuff. But there is a choice of going to the other side of the park to the other Bar/restaurant if you want a quieter evening.

Frejus is only a 10min bus ride which you can catch from directly outside the site and drops you off in the centre of the promenade and last bus bask is midnight, so leave the car at home enjoy the evening markets and many restaurants.

Facilities on site cleaned regular each pitch has own water/waste point pretty level too. If your unit is of a larger size then I suggest you mention it when booking as although ours was OK, it didn't give us a lot of free space and there is plenty of bigger pitches.

We will be back again next year

Reviewer: Doctor and Fosters 1 review from this member

We spent one week with Eurocamp at La Baume with two sons (14 & 12). It's made up of two former camp sites merged into one large site; we were glad we took bicycles to get around.

There is so much to do on the site that we hardly saw the boys. There are five swimming pools, a few water slides, a disco, the list goes on. The reception is efficient and welcoming, as are all the different Reps from the many European camping companies. Near the reception is a complimentary area to wash the sand off your car and refill the washer bottle.

The toilet blocks and washing up areas were cleaned twice a day and well maintained. The pools were clean and guarded, but like most French campsites I've been to over the last thirty years, the pools were quite dated and stuck in the 1970's. As with most sites, they enforce the 'no board shorts' rule to reduce water loss and insist on, the ever so fetching speedo second skin, lycra trunks. There were plenty of sun loungers but not much shade.

We used the bar and takeaway once. The service is 'relaxed', the food is what you'd expect for a poolside bar and the prices are a little 'inflated'.

All this makes the site sound perfect for a busy family holiday. The only problem was a HUGE one. The site is literally next to the A7 auto route and was dismissed in Eurocamp's brochure as 'Some road noise may be heard at night'. The reality is this. If you hire a Keycamp static home, they're well away from the motorway, it's lovely and quiet and next to the quietest pool. 2012 Eurocamp customers and all the touring plots were smack bang next to a twenty feet high wall which does not keep the noise out. The motorway can be heard 24/7, which ruined the holiday. We don't live next to a motorway and we didn't drive 1000 miles on the auto route, to sit next to it all week.

Eurocamp staff were friendly and helpful, but their standards need to be raised.

All in all, an excellent site as long as you aren't touring or staying with Eurocamp; unless you don't mind motorway noise.

The Corniche coastal road to Monaco via Nice is scenic and an excellent day out. We drove the coastal road and then drove back along the A7 straight to our tent.

Stayed at this site for a week in one of keycamps statics, we took a flight to Nice and booked a car at airport.

we all agreed (2 family's with a static each) that this was probably one of the best sites we'd stayed at, great pools for the kids, good little bar and disco with the usual cheesy but fun entertainment, The little site supermarket has everything you need, not too much of a rip off and nice staff,

We'll be returning next year, but with our folding camper and staying longer as we loved it here.

Well. Our third year on this site now having now bought a touring caravan. Our last review was done in 2008 and not a great deal has changed. The pools are still excellent and get very busy but I do feel they are ready for a repaint.

We now need to use the toilet/shower blocks and they are outstanding. Regularly being cleaned by the many staff they have to be seen to be believed (especially for France).

The touring plots are also very good with hedges around each plot. Mains water and waste are also available but some taps were corroded and could potentially be a problem. Perhaps best to ensure booked with it.

Restaurant still good. Takeaway still chaotic.

Will probably be booking for next year.
