We stayed at this site twice this year, as it makes a great place to get to Calais port or Eurotunnel. About half the pitches are long-stay, and residents in some cases; with elaborate porches and patios installed. The main touring clientele are English cross-channel traffic like us - it's about a 30 min drive.

The young managers have been running it for four years, and are doing an excellent job. Wifi was down on the second visit; the managers were so apologetic, and went round to each pitch when it was restored (The area near reception and restaurant gets good coverage). The toilets are immaculate, well designed and constantly clean. Washing up area is a separate room, with hot water on tap, not just at the sinks.

We stayed for several nights; there's a large Auchan hypermarket at Longuenesse near St. Omer where we restocked; and took a trip to Bruges one day (about 1 ½ hr drive). Ardres has a nice restaurant (the François I) to which we had been recommended, but it was closed for annual holidays in mid-September.

We stayed for one night at either end of our holiday. Looking for a reliable stop near Calais. We'd previously used a popular site that is overpriced. St Louis is half the price and much nicer.

Pitches neatly mowed with occasional flowering shrubs in hedges.

Toilet blocks seem new and very clean. There are toilet seats and hand wash (no paper - well it is France!).

Used the restaurant - limited menu - Babette steak delicious! Girls loved the ice cream.

Just one negative - don't order breakfast baguette or croissants. They were very poor.

We'll definitely use this site again.

Stayed overnight before catching the ferry next day.

The site was excellent with clean modern facilities and a good Bar/Restaurant.

Good sized pitch with electric and water close at hand.

Polite and helpful owners.

30 mins from Calais car ferry.

Will definitely use this site again.

Excellent campsite and well maintained by the two hard working girls who manage it.

When we arrived we had reserved a pitch and been given the pitch number but due to a Camper cutting up the pitch as it's front wheels spun up when it was being driven off we were asked to move to a different pitch which was no trouble.

We identified this site from the ACSI book as being handy for Calais (30 mins from the dockside) for the last night of our trip and were not disappointed. It is reasonably easy to find, a couple of km south of the D943, from which it is signposted. The welcome was warm and we were given the ACSI rate (+ modest local taxes) even though we'd lost our card weeks before. There are flat, grassy pitches, surrounded by hedges and with plenty of electricity points but you'll need an adapter for a continental domestic style 3-pin outlet. We noted that other units came and went early and late, with assistance from the owners, presumably responding to ferry sailings.

The sanitary block is modern and immaculately clean - only the paperless loos might offend UK tastes. There is a chemical toilet disposal point which scores highly both by being under cover and by having a pressure jet hose. The grey water disposal is outside the entrance and needs a bit of chequer plate to be lifted to access the drain.

We ate at the bar; simple food from a limited menu but cheerfully served and reasonably priced. There didn't appear to be any other eating establishments in easy walking distance. It's about 2km to Ardres which has an attractive centre with a good range of shops and two out-of-centre supermarkets (Carrefour to the west and Simply to the east) are fine for groceries and fuel. Both were selling diesel at €118. 5/litre at the time of our visit.

Altogether a splendid first or last night for a continental tour.
