Just back from Normandy and spent 2 nights here. It's functional - however it's still out of season for the French and there wasn't much going on. The shop was not stocked, however the pool was open and the loos and showers (mixed) were fairly clean. There is a restaurant and bar on site but it never seemed very busy and we didn't eat there. There is an alternative 4* The Cormorant about 2 km further up the road and having stayed there before that would be my choice for this area. However out of season obviously means the ACSI Card is accepted which gets you a cheaper overnight rate.

This is a splendid site at this time of the year (end August early September ) but remember perceptions can change depending upon how busy things get as the seasons change.

The generally large touring pitches are grassy over a sandy top soil with the obvious advantage of excellent drainage should it rain. Staff were professional and friendly. The two adequate toilet blocks serve opposite ends of the site. A Motorhome service point is adjacent to the main toilet block.

A lot of effort has been made to ensure the site is child-friendly. There is a covered swimming pool, a bouncy castle, crazy golf course, a playground, an aviary, and a small animal paddock. Although we did not use it, the Restaurant seemed to be very well patronised by local residents.

The site is in an excellent position: it's a short walk to one of the best WW2 Museums; a short drive to Ste Mere Eglise and its excellent Museum; and of course it's adjacent to the historic Utah beach. The villages in the surrounding area are most interesting and attractive.

In summary, at this time of the year, a splendid campsite well worth a visit.

We spent 7 nights here in August 2013. The site is a couple of minutes walk from the beach and about 10 minutes walk to the Utah beach landings Museum.

The site has a covered pool that our girls used more than once. The small shop stocks a few basics but I wouldn't rely on it for anything much more than the morning bread and ice creams:)

The showers are no longer push button and fine. There is a small child's play area and a few goats in a compound.

The beach is fine sand and shallow seas for quite a distance out.

We would use this site if we came back this way.

Had a one night stop before heading home via Cherbourg. It was the weekend after the DDay celebrations so lots of people with jeeps and dressed up on the site. Decent bar, had a takeaway pizza which was fine. Didnt use the pool etc, showers could have been better. They seemed to have goats and birds area for kids and crazy golf. 2 minute cycle to the museum which was fantastic.

We also cycled out and found the 101st airborne easy company monument down a little side road. (big band of brothers fan). Cycyled into the town again lots had been going on for DDay week, all camped out around the church, small museum there. Had a really good lunch in the restaurant looking at the church.

It was very cold and blowy the night we stayed but a lovely easy stopover for Cherbourg ferry.

We spent 3 nights here as part of a two week tour round France. The site is just 2 mins walk from the beach which is lovely, wide flat and clean. We saw horses and chariots running alongside the waves in the sunshine, beautiful. We wanted to see the historical D Day sites and relics and the site is perfectly placed for this with the museum only a 10 mins walk along the beach. The nearby town of St Marie du Monte can be reached by bicycle in less than half an hour. It has a couple of restaurants and there are signs giving little insights into events of 6th June 1944.

We booked the site direct via the internet with no problems. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and we were directed to the motorhome service point on arrival. Pitch - it was near the portacabins at the end of the row and it easily accommodated our unit, which at 8. 3m is on the large size. We had hedges to two sides making our pitch private. The site was quiet with the 10. 30pm quiet rule observed by all.

Toilets - the main block was clean with unisex toilets and showers, toilet seats and loo roll. The showers were push button and not all that powerful, but were warm enough. The main block was locked between 10pm and 7am but the portacabins were available. Facilities - decent kids playground, goats, bouncy castle, tennis court and ball games area, swimming pool. The pool was covered so could be used in all weathers and it was clean, although a little on the cold side. The majority of campers were French and so the speedos rule was generally observed, however we did see a few bathers in surf shorts and no-one objected.

Shop -basic in that there was no fresh milk, only UHT, but there was fresh bread daily. Other essentials in jars/tins/packets were available but it mainly catered for gifts. Bar and restaurant - we didn't try but they looked nice. Two washing up sinks had no plugs so you will need a bowl. Would recommend the site to anyone wanting to visit the landing sites as it is perfectly located for this.

We stayed at Utah Beach for a week with our 6 year old son. We pre-booked and got a really good value deal using the Flower Camping Website.

We were lucky to get a massive pitch with views over fields, under some evergreen trees to give some shade.

The toilet block was clean and facilities were numerous enough to cope at high season.

We ate at the restaurant once and the food was high quality, the take away pizzas were also good. The pool was a bit small and did get crowded but the site was full when we were there.

The location of the campsite was pretty isolated (which we liked) and the beach was fantastic, 2 mins walk. We spent every evening watching the farmers harvest oysters and watching the sunset over the otherwise deserted beach. Loads of sea life to investigate along with the WW2 fortifications. The site is a 10 min stroll down the beach to the museum and Roosevelt cafe. There was a nature reserve 5 mins drive away.

We found the free Wi-Fi useful to contact the UK.

The only negative about the site was the entertainment on Thursday and Friday nights was rather loud, keeping my son awake. It did finish by 11pm though. They also played the same CD loudly for aqua-aerobics at 10am every day which did get a little wearing after 7 days!

All in all we had a great week and would recommend the site to others.
