Reviewer: Franbee 149 reviews from this member

Reviewers - mature couple with campervan and bikes.

We stayed here overnight on our journey along the Loire. The site is on the riverside opposite the town, you can see the lovely buildings across.

The site has an immediate problem when you arrive, as there is a sharp turn into the entrance, which has a barrier, and there is nowhere to wait except on the road, so there's a lot of juggling with traffic coming and going.

The reception was friendly enough, the staff spoke some English. They were obviously pretty full as we were offered a space on the lower level, and allocated an EHU which was on the higher level, so we had to find a suitable space to park, and use the long cable. This area has no formal pitches, so some of the vans were quite close together. Eventually, some also parked on the space nearest the river, where the tents were.

The sanitary block was some distance away, and up on the next level, beneath the reception. It was very busy, mixed sex, and though the cleaner was there in the morning, by the evening the facilities were unpleasantly dirty.

Washing up was outside, and the water was hot. There is a washing machine that we used, but it can only be used when the staff are there to unlock the laundry. You pay them the cash for this.

We cycled over the bridge into town, but didn't venture too far as it was very hot.

I wasn't struck on this site, it wasn't as cared for as we like, so would probably not return.

Stayed 1st June for one night whilst heading South, as previously stated its a tight entrance if approaching from N7 or Autoroute but there is a junction 30 metres past where you can turn round and swing in more easily, nice 3 tiered site not large, caravans and Motorhomes on top two tiers and tents on lower, unfortunately due to the very wet weather Northern France was. Suffering the Loire had burst its banks and the lower tier was under water. Site is very convenient for town a five minute walk over the river into the town centre. Friendly receptionist and clean facilities Reccomended but don't arrive too late or the site may be full.

Tight entrance if approaching from the wrong direction.

Setup on the top level with a fantastic view of the Town and river, facilities were very good but towards the evening the caravans kept on coming so that the lower area was pretty well jammed.

Around 1700hrs several cars with a group of ten or so youths arrived and setup camp below the facilities, within 10 minutes the VERY loud music started and despite being told the Site Rule about quiet from 2200hrs it continued until well after 0130.

At around 0630 we were woken by the French National Anthem blarring and the music continued until Management pulled the plug and the lads left at 0900hrs.

Such a shame as it is a lovely Site in a cracking location but due to the shortsighted Management decision to allow a same sex party we won't be returning.

Used this site for a stopover one rainy evening in mid-September. The location is superb; we were pitched on the riverside with a clear view from the tent to the cathedral over the river; there's a large concrete silo building over there too, which turned out to be the Maison de Culture. Tents are on the lower section; the soil is sandy and easy to peg into. Some noise from the weir, but covers any traffic noise.

At 14pn with ACSI card it's good value, though the snack bar was closed when we were there. Directions on the door to the depot de pain. Toilets clean and warm, up a flight of steps from the lower level.

Looking for a restaurant was tricky - should have used a guide. Ended up at McD's (turn r over bridge; by second roundabout). I suspect the busier part of town is in this area; the bit by the bridge leads to the historical quarter, dominated by cathedral and palace, no shops.

This site is an ideal stop over on the banks of the Loire within easy walking distance of the town.

We pitched our tent on the lower level which is the exclusive domain of tent campers, our tent was adjacent to the dyke so we could use EHU but those tents without EHU pitched right up to the banks of the river. The view across the river to the town and cathedral is lovely, although the cathedral still has scaffolding on it.

The toilets are a bit of a trek for tent campers but are spotless with plenty of hot water. The receptionist spoke perfect English, Dutch and French. We arrived about 5pm without reservation and there were plenty of pitches available for tents but the caravan/motorhome pitches seemed almost full.

Walk across the bridge, cross the road and slightly left and you will find a delightful, small patisserie for your bread and croissants. There is also a friendly bar for a morning coffee and a tabac. Walk up the hill a bit and you arrive at the cathedral and centre of the town with shops, bars and restaurants. Many shops are closed on Wednesdays.

The site cost 29 euros for 1 night for 6 people with EHU - it would obviously be a lot less for a couple.

I would highly recommend this site, it even features in the Cool Camping book and I would make a bee line for it if I was ever travelling in that area again.

To find site:- Leave A77 at junction 37 and take road D976 in the direction of Bourges. At first roundabout take road to Nevers. Just before bridge over the Loire turn right and campsite immediately on the left. Be warned that site reception is closed between midday and 3.00pm and there is no space immediately outside the site to wait so best to time you arrival to avoid the closure.

Camping de Nevers has a lovely situation on the banks of the River Loire overlooking the town on the opposite bank. There are two parts to the site, a higher terraced section and a lower section on the river bank. There are around 70 pitches although only the terraced ones seem to be numbered and with the exception of a couple of mobiles they are all touring. Pitch size is not over generous particularly on the terrace section and newly planted trees don't help access and they are longer than they are wide. I would have thought it would be difficult to place the averaged sized UK caravan on some pitches without the aid of a mover. Likewise setting up an awning could also be difficult due to the provision of space. Electric points, CEE17 connectors, are rated at 6amps. A long lead might be required for the lower section. Water points are dotted around the site. Chemical toilet disposal is combined with the motorhome service point, not sure I would use the water points in this area for caravan water supplies! The reception building is on two levels with the bureau at the higher level and the bar and toilets facilities at the lower level. The bar also does snacks. The toilet facilities are modern and of a high standard with seated toilets but no paper provided. Both toilets and showers are unisex. Internet access is available by a fixed terminal but the WiFi was not working during our stay. The site accepts Camping Cheques out of the high season. Camping de Nevers is a popular night halt and tends to fill up by late afternoon although I would have thought you would find space but I suspect electrics could not be guaranteed.

Apart from being a useful north/south stopover the pleasant town of Nevers, just across the river from the site, is worth a visit. The motor racing circuit at Magny Cours is about 10 miles south. There are numerous supermarkets in the area as well as full shopping opportunities in the town.
