Have you looked at Riva Bella?
https://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/details.asp?revid=3858

Not sure about early morning departures, but we have stopped there on the way in to France on the late ferry from Portsmouth. Provided you are booked and they are aware of your arrival time, they stay open.

Hopefully, they work the same for early departures.

They are literally, just a few moments drive from the ferry.

We use This Site - Camping Des Capucines very welcoming, some people say there may be a problem with the bridge due to ship traffic, but we have never encountered it ourselves on morning run to ferry.

Another recommendation for this site, used it a few times over recent years, and owners/managers seem very accommodating to the needs of ferry users (advise them of your ferry times when booking, and check the UKCampsite reviews for confirmation on how flexible they are). Again, never had an issue with the bridge, if it's a real concern just leave extra time for it on journey, on the couple of occasions I've seen the bridge open, it only took 10, 15 mins at the most. IIRC the site barrier is opened with a number code (given when booking in) and I don't recall it ever being locked overnight.

To us, it's a nice site that suits our needs perfectly, and we don't usually bother looking for anywhere else, just booking it with confidence as a routine part of the annual trip.

Forgot to mention, the main advantage of Riva Bella is the distance. Under 2Km from the ferry.

We have used both Riva Bella and camping des capuccine. Both are open for arrivals from the late ferry and you can leave from both sites to catch the 0830 ferry. Riva Bella is only about 5 minutes to the ferry, capuccines is about 10 to 15 minutes.

Riva Bella works for us. Last used it in October last year (see my review). They also accept the ACSI card, which helps keep the costs down (out of high season).
