We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our tour of Germany. Site is well kept with nice sized bays. A hedge offers some degree of privacy.

The facilities are in desperate need of a revamp. The gents toilets were dirty and although the women's were clean, the shower didn't drain properly which meant I was standing ankle deep in water which was running out of the door. There was some road noise, but not to the extent to really be a nuisance. Restaurant is good, nice beer & reasonably price food.

The site seems to be part of a large country park offering lots of water based & climbing activities.

We drove into Ghent, lovely town full of beautiful buildings. A bit like a little Amsterdam.

A really nice and pleasant site with a bar and restaurant.

Very helpful staff who spoke English.

The site was very nicely marked out with each 'bay' surrounded by a hedge offering a little privacy.

Short bus ride into Gent centre. Will visit again when in Belgium.

Pleasantly surprised. The positive: Professional reception with multi-lingual staff. Full site and Ghent information provided including bus timetable and location (3 euros each way). Pitches separated by low hedging. 2 rows of paving slabs mark out where the pitch is leaving a grass area to the side. Our electric cable was not long enough and reception helpfully loaned an extension free of charge. Toilet blocks are male and female separate but showers are unisex (i think, difficult to work out). The only negative is that the toilet blocks are not as clean as they could be. They are not filthy by any means but appear to need some elbow grease. The showers are good but always flood the floors. Would stay again off season.

We liked this site. Our pitch was a decent size though some of them looked to be a bit of a squeeze. The utilities were ok and functional but, occasionally, a bit whiffy. There is free wifi on site. Buses into Ghent are frequent. The stop is five minutes walk from reception. Cost is three euros per person per journey, or you can buy a mutli-journey ticket from reception and save quite a bit. The lake, with beach, is five minutes walk from reception. The site has a shop plus chip shop plus restaurant and bar. Ghent itself is quite nice with some interesting old buildings but, despite the tourist blurb, is not as good as Bruges. We would recommend this site.

We've stayed here a number of times before. Not a lot had changed except for it seeming a bit tidier. The families who have seasonal pitches now seem to be in just a couple of the separate alcoves rather than dotted around all over the place; there also didn't seem to be as many of them. Finding there was now WiFi at our pitch was nice as it's previously only been at reception, but it didn't work too well as there were so many people trying to make use of it.

The toilets here do have toilet paper and are clean (though some of the drains do have that certain continental drain smell)! Insect repellent is useful at some times of year as Gent is built on low lying marshy ground, and though now well drained does retain a bit of a mosquito problem. Very occassionally after an exceptional downpour the site WILL flood. We lifted the blinds of the caravan one morning a couple of years ago to find that most of the site was under several inches of water. Soon there were 5 large pumps running taking water away to the local lake, and by the evening everything was pretty much back to normal.

A very useful stopping off point on the way to/from the ferries; if you are new to this site or northen Belgian towns just be VERY careful of all the cycle paths on your approach to the site as bikes come whizzing out from everywhere. Very good for exploring some of the northern WW1 sites. Taking the bus into town (buy your tickets from the site shop) is a must, as Gent is a fantastic city!

Blaarmeersen was our last European stop after three weeks on the Continent.

It was also the most expensive at 31 for 2 adults, EHC and a 7m tourer. However that worked at at about 23 due to a good exchange rate.

The staff are very polite and the chap that dealt with us spoke very good English.

I was a little confused about the insistence of producing both passports and proof of address as nowhere else we had stayed had asked for either.

Free WiFi is a bonus.

The EHC is only rated at 10amps so we had to use gas for hot water if we didn't want to trip the supply. We were running a laptop, battery charger, fridge, cool box and low wattage kettle though.

Access to the site is excellent and the location just off the motorway network makes things so easy.

The only fly in the ointment is the future of the site. One of the staff let us know that the owners of the site are thinking of selling-up. This might go a long way to explain why the sanitary facilities are starting to look a bit tired.

If the site is still operating the next time we go abroad it will definitely be our first stop.
