We made an overnight stop at this site last week on our way back to Calais, as we have used it previously. The setting of the site itself is pleasant and the Reception staff polite but the washroom facilities need much attention. We noted the following:- out of two blocks only two Gents toilet cubicles were in operation for the whole site, which was quite busy (we reported this to Reception). On the Ladies side both disabled cubicles were locked and the hand dryer out of order. The unisex showers and washing cubicles were reasonable but only one light above the sinks was working in the block we used. The Reception office was fine but its exterior lacked the 'welcome' factor and looked as if it had been boarded up! On arrival we were told that the Restaurant was open but it was displaying a 'Closed due to technical problems' notice. A lady made a phone call and then assured us it would be open and the notice was duly removed by her. Obviously no-one had kept them informed either way. We ate there and had a choice of 2 meals or alternatively a Take Away. It seems such a shame that this site is being allowed to deteriorate when it has so much potential.

Used the aire here as a stop off point. It was OK, but nothing special. Access to city was fairly good. The city itself is lovely and well worth a visit.

The aire itself is flat, if a little narrow, but it was relatively quiet.

Sadly the staff working at the site were rude to us and our children (despite one of us speaking fluent French!). Perhaps they don't want people using the aire? Given the treatment we received, we shan't be coming back and would certainly not recommend this site to others.

This site is on the edge of Amiens but it has security features of a city centre site. The gates are locked shut overnight.

We received a warm welcome and English is spoken by some of the staff. There are information leaflets in reception and we were invited to choose our pitch.

Each grassy area is 'fronted' by concrete so it would have been possible to move your van onto hardstanding in inclement weather. The pitches were not particularly private and the markers were not too specific so pitching and electric hookup was a bit random.

Only one toilet block was open and this was not as clean as we would have liked.

Despite the number of units on the site, (certainly about three quarters full), there was no bar, tv room, shop or friterie. Disappointing, really.

There are lots of places to walk, though it is a long walk into the city. Catch the bus if you don't have a dog. The drivers don't always let a dog on, so we had to content ourselves with riverside walks - you can walk for miles!

The site is only a short distance drive from Albert, Thiepval and all the Somme battlefields. As always, near a city, there are supermarkets and industrial estates close by.

Visited this site in July, booked through the caravan club, was not informed about the early closure of the barrier(2030)and lockdown of main gate(2200)nor the 20euro to purchase a TAG for late entry, on there website the waters around the site looked great, so took rods 1st pond covered in algie unfishable, 2nd pond is where they dumped grass cuttings had a film of grass over it unfishable, reception. There English was like my French passable, toilets clean but only two cubicles, showers 10 had to rinse down before use, ideal for 1 night either coming to/from Europe, first decent shop was a good 10min drive. Will not be using this site again BUT will be returning to FRANCE

Great site. Spacious plots, friendly staff, clean & warm facilities, Pastry/Bread delivered to site. Quite even though routes are nearby.

Well placed for routes N1 / A16 / N25.

Used as a base to go to Peronne and Albert touring WW1 sites.

Camping car aire at front of site with aire de service.

Quiet when we visited only some 12 units, mainly motorhomes.

Reviewer: Buccy 1 review from this member

We stayed on the campsite to attend the flea market in Amiens. Reception staff more than helpful in helping us to find free car parking close to the market area. As it was low season only one toilet and shower block open not a problem as site half full. Fishing available free of charge on site, lots of walks for our 2 dogs. Enjoyed our stay and would book again. A visit into the town, I would recommend as the Cathedral is magnificent, had a coffee and local speciality maccaron sitting in the square. One issue might be the length of power cable needed, if not able to park close to the hook up point. 20 meters plus in some cases.
