We stopped here for one night at the beginning of our holiday. Only 30 to 40 minutes drive from Calais, it is well placed and easy to find.
The site is huge and has a large number of statics. It is well cared for and well organised. Tents and caravans are located in amongst the statics, near the entrance tourers are in small cul de sacs of about 6 places, each place enclosed by hedges. There was a generous amount of space. Facilities are clean and good. A road of about a kilometre through the dunes will bring you to a second part of the site by the sea. More statics are here with some touring sites imaginatively placed in amongst the sand dunes. There is a bar, restaurant, take away etc.
I would recommend the site, but with reservations - it didn't really feel like a campsite! It's more of a holiday village with space for some tents and caravans.
Superb site. We arrived early evening on a Sunday having pre-booked, checking in was simple and we opted for the fob for the showers.
We were shown to our pitch in a cul-de-sac with four delimited spaces, a little bit of a slope nothing to get excited about.
Toilets are cleaned twice a day, both morning and evening, the cleaner taking at least two hours each time, lack of seat not a problem, either take your own or buy toilet seat covers, the majority of visitors (French) on this and other sites we have visited in France ALL take their own toilet paper, even if the site does provide it.
The bar/restaurant at the entrance served excellent food, pleasantly served. The small supermarket across the road stocks almost anything you could need, and next door is a camping supermarket, for fresh bread there is a small patisserie down the road that opens before 07:00.
We could not find fault with the site the facilities or the staff we encountered.
The only problems were caused by English tourists arriving trying to use main electrics and being surprised the site had European sockets.
We used this caravan site for one night before our ferry from Dunkirk. It is a massive site, mainly for static caravans, many shops/restaurants close by, close to the beach (large but not nice) and just 30mins from the ferry terminal.
The toilet block and washing facilities aren't great: cleanliness just acceptable, no toilet rolls and the lukewarm showers work with 1€/4-5 mins (you can't stop the water flow!.
At 8pm the electricity stopped working so I went to the warden, who without a word of english said that it couldn't do anything as the reception closes at 7pm so I should have waited until the following morning! Result: I had to use the gas for the fridge and torches all night. The electricity was put back to order at 9am!
When I went to pay the bill, despite my complaints about the poor service, I received no discount at all as they kept saying that after 7pm the caretaker goes home! Definitely not recommended.
I'd say this site is OK! But for us, nothing special.
It is a holiday park and can get busy at weekends as most of the site is occupied by Statics, as such weekends are noisy though weekdays were ok.
We turned up at around 4pm after a leisurly drive up from Rouen. Reading the other reviews here we were expecting a lovely hedge lined pitch a la french stlye. Unfortunately we were given an uneven patch of grass next to the road that leads from the top of the site to the bottom. Come late night this road can be quite busy and noisy as people drive their cars from the bar near the coast to their caravan/tent.
The site itself is well looked after, the toilets and showers were very clean and the on site shops stock enough for emergency vists.
Being close to the sea was great, once on the beach you're only a two minute walk from Belgium.
Would I recommend this site, probably, but make sure they give you a pitch closer to the reception area. Although this part of the site is further from the beach, it's much quieter and the pitches are fantastic.
We had pre-booked a pitch at Club Camping Perroquet, so when we arrived, after we had booked in we were shown to our pitch. Surrounded by hedges about five feet high on three sides, for a largish pitch, it was quite private, especially when we put the breeze blocker up across our tent door. Wi-Fi is free, (but I could not use it as the wireless on my lap top is playing up), but the showers you have to pay for. This is done on a token basis, or, a pre-pay fob, not knowing how long the money on this would last(we had a fob) we put 7. 5 euro on it for six days. When we handed it back, there was still 4. 5 euro left, and that was both of us showering every night in lovely warm showers, it was working out around 50-60 cents a shower.
This is a very large spread out site, we were 1500 metres(about 1 mile)from the bar, shop, friterrie(chippy), Pizza City and the children's club, as we were at the reception end of the site. There are two small bars, and a tobacconist shop just outside the gate, but they were closed for about 8pm most nights. A small super-market is five minutes away, in Belgium, as this site is right on the Franco-Belgian border. The other end of the site is very sandy, as it is on the edge of the sand dunes and most exceptional beach beach which seemed to be endless. The prices here seemed to be more reasonable for drinks and food than the first place we stayed, see our review for Croix-Du-Vieux-Pont. Also this site was quiet at night after 10pm.
The sanitary facilities were kept spotless by a team of cleaners, although the toilets have no seats on them(maybe they got fed up of replacing broken loo seats, and changed them for a seatless type), and you have to provide your own toilet roll.
We found Perroquet to be an ideal place from which to travel around, as you have a choice of going into France or Belgium, Iepers(Ypres) is about 20miles away. This area is full of history from WW1 and WW2. Bray Dunes itself is a pretty little town which has cash points in it, a few souvenir shops, and a promenade which is pleasant to walk along
Would we go back to Perroquet, most definitely as there is so much to see and do around there and the bonus of being half-an hour away from the Dunkirk ferry terminal.
