Stayed here for 2. 5 weeks in summer, nice tidy campsite on the banks of the seine, pitches large enough for big tents and all manner of camping equipment. Toilet blocks ok, bar and pizzeria excellent with all pizzas homemade. Nice family pool and small kids pool. Basketball/football court, badminton, 2 large trampolines and 2 large bouncy castles, go-karts and cycles for hire at reception, paris sightseeing trips with picnics weekly in high season, owners very helpful and fluent in many languages. Disabled facilities, melun town 15 mins walk, train station 15 mins walk, bus-stop outside, 24mins to Paris by train, 45mins drive to Disney, very friendly site at which we have stopped many times to explore Paris, chateaus etc.
We stayed here form the 1st August to the 8th ina large 6 berth tent with awning. The pitch - 41 - was big enough for the tent and outdoor eating and close to the 6 amp electric supply.
The check-in was effortless and I found the staff very friendly and had a good grasp of english - which helped as my french is a bit rusty !
The 3 toilet and shower blocks were always clean, tidy and well looked after - and never appeared to be too busy - which given the size of the site was good. It is approx 1. 5 clicks from Melun, which we found to be easy to get to, a good range of shops for all you camping delights, including a carrefour, bakers, cloths, etc.
It was easy for the train station to get to Gar de Lyon if you wanted a trip to Paris.
The site facilities for the kids were good - swimming pool, inflatable bouncy castles, etc as well as trampolines, court area and a kids club.
The only downside was its proximity to the train tracks, which seemed to run trains until the early hours - however after the first 2 nights I didn't notice them.
Would I stay again -yes. Its a great base for exploring the area.
There is plenty to do in the area by foot, bike or car.
We stayed on this site whilst visiting Disneyland and had planned on staying for 6 nights but left after 3. Initial impressions were of a nice, clean site with good facilities for our child. We were allocated a pitch but not given a choice despite their being plenty of space. Then followed 3 sleepless nights with the first due to a family next to us packing away at 5am and the following 2 nights being kept awake by a group of people up drinking and chatting. Despite asking them to keep the noise down and knocking on the owners door who didn't answer the noise continued which is why we left. The facilities were all in good working order although rather dated. The small toilet block behind the pool was definitely better than the main one so we chose to use that. The snack bar food wasn't very good and the staff seemed to get rather stressed during busy periods although not particularly busy as the site wasn't very busy anyway. The pools were fine with a small one for toddlers and a larger one with blow up sides. The shop was limited in stock although we only bought bread. I would stay again if desperate to stay someone near disney but only for a couple of nights.
We used this site as a 1 night stopover when going south. It was perfect for that purpose bypassing Paris and getting past the heavy traffic. The site is beside the river in a quiet area, I counted 20 swans on the river that evening.
The municipal pool is next door. We were lucky to get a pitch beside the pool area on the left hand side, as a walk around the site I noticed the right hand side looked very cramped and tighter on space. There is a small pool really only suitable for kids and it has a blow up side so probably not suitable for very small children.
The play facilities were very good with 2 trampolines and a volleyball pitch. The snack bar was very small and a bit overwhelmed when busy, my husband did not get his order at all, eventually sharing ours then having to make do with sandwiches back at the tent.
The loos and showers were old but clean and fine to use. There were trips into Paris advertised, so I imagine there was plenty to do around about. We would like to go back.
We used this site as our last but one stopover on our way north. It accepts Camping Cheques in low season. The site is quite easy to find; if you miss the first turn off the main road (which we did) there is another, just before the Buffalo Grill. Don't be alarmed by the industrial area you have to drive through - it gets better. The site is quite large and is separated with trees and hedges into largish pitches which in high season I assume are meant to take several units, but we had one to ourselves. It's completely level with good satellite tv reception.
The other reception when we arrived was very welcoming even though it was officially their lunchtime. We discovered that the exhaust was hanging off the car and they could not have been more helpful in directing us to a fitter in Melun - not that they could do anything (OH effected a temporary repair which held up). They even remembered to ask about it later.
Bread can be ordered but the shop, bar etc were closed when we were there.
The site is right next to the Seine so you can watch some very large barges going along and I assume there must be boat hire and fishing available nearby. It's only a few minutes drive from Melun which is a large bustling town.
It's also quite easy to get onto the main road north at Melun, even though the town looks daunting.
