 Chickened out and left our trailer tent at home and tried out a ready-erected "Supertent" through Keycamp. Wouldn't do that again - reps were worse than useless.
Stayed here while the Midlands in England flooded and think some of it flowed across La Manche and into our tent. According to the Keycamp reps the site is prone to flooding however apart from their Supertents which seemed to have been positioned rather foolishly on the pitches (i.e. Shoved onto a slope in the corner of a huge pitch in the case of ours) we saw no signs of it other than the mini-river running between our 2 bedrooms! The electricity went out twice during our 5 night stay but the storms were pretty nasty so hopefully that wasn't common - and in any case it came back on within about an hour both times.
The camp site itself is very picturesque - lots of mature planting, trees, shrubs etc. And the pitches are huge and in the main the boundaries between them are obvious from small shrubs/trees etc. Rather than horrid white lines.
The shower block nearest to us was heated although unisex which took some getting used to! Other blocks were single sex and unheated. Shower blocks/washing up areas etc. Were kept really clean despite the weather - most people were walking a little mud into them.
The campsite shop was basic - lots of space in the shop so they could've stocked a lot more things but you could order bagettes/croissants/pain au chocolat one day ready to pick up the next morning which was useful.
Didn't try the takeaway or bar menus but had a fabulous meal in the restaurant next door as other people have mentioned in their reviews. We sat on the terrace for our meal on the only sunny evening we had there. But you do need to book a table. Children were well catered for there.
Kids tried the pool out once but were'nt bothered about going again - we'd spent a morning at Aqualud (about one hour down the motorway at Le Touquet?) water park and after that the site pool seemed a little tame. Can recommend Aqualud for kids and also the Bellewaerde theme park in Belgium (1 1/2 hours drive away). For bringing back wine you pass Franglais between the camp site and CitiEurope/tunnel entrance so that's simple and they were very helpful, well priced and not busy there.
Yes, a number of people only stayed one or two nights en route elsewhere but others were there a bit longer.
I would go back - but not in a Supetent next time!

 Visited during very wet weather and some pitches were out of use due to slight flooding. However, the site was still a pleasure to be in. The staff were friendly and helpful. The toilet facilities were kept clean and tidy in spite of the rain and mud outside!

The site shop and take away were busy but coped well.

The covered swimming pool was very popular because of the poor weather.

Highly recommended for even an extended stay.

 Have stayed here many times, both with Keycamp and with my own kit.

Toilets/showers are not the most modern, but are clean with adjustable temperature showers and lots of water (none of these water-saving showerheads).

The campsite bar/fast-food area is v basic, with quite frankly not a lot going for it.

However, there is an independent restaurant on site - Le Fermier Gourmand - which has to be among the best I've ever visited anywhere! Usually full of French locals (a v good sign of quality),
Around £30 will take you to the top of a 6 or 7 course menu which will absolutely blow your socks off. The Maitre-d (also the owner) does not take kindly to being spoken to loudly in English (quite rightly), so as bad as your French is, please give it a shot. If you do your chances of a successful booking (it is busy) will quadruple, and he'll eventually let slip he's actually from Yorkshire.

Campsite pitches are fine,†nice and†grassy even†at the season's end†- but tent dwellers beware. The owners will take your money, but try and send you to some forsaken corner of the site more suitable for a pup-tent than a tourer, even if you've pre-booked with an EHU. This is to keep more regular pitches for caravans & motorhomes, even though you've paid exactly the same.

You really have to put your foot down if shown an inappropriate site (happens to me every year without fail), but they will back down.

It's gotten to the point where I anticipate the fight now, but I still recommend it as a nice quiet site for 2 - 4 nights.

But whatever you do - go to the restaurant.

 This site is great for a stopover but would not stay here for a holiday.† The site was a little tired looking and I notice when we visited in July 06 that it had lost its 4 star rating and been demoted to 3 star.† The Castles group of campsites which this site is affiliated with are always brilliant and I feel that this site lets them down.† The pitches looked a reasonable size and it was nice and peaceful but that's about all you could say for it.† We will continue to use this site for a stopover before we get the ferry home but would definitely be very disappointed if we had booked a holiday here.

 Very good stopover site for ferry or tunnel. Far enough out of Calais to be quiet ,but near enough for shopping and vets etc. I have used this site many times over the years but the toilet blocks do not look to have been updated except for the motorhome service point.

 This site is ideal for a stop over for Calais. We have stayed at it twice before and would have no problem returning in the future. It is a medium sized site with some tour operators present. The site is split into three parts, the far top consisting of a mixture of good sized touring pitches and static caravans. The middle and bottom bits are mainly touring pitches with the odd tour operator tent and static thrown in. The swimming pool is smallish, and has a 'cover' which can be pushed back in warm weather, and there is a slide which ends in a splash pool. There is also a toddlers pool which is totally undercover. In high season the pool area gets very busy.

The bar and restaurant are very pleasant, as are the staff. The whole site has a feeling of french ambiance.

The only weak part of the site are the toilet blocks which are looking a bit tired. Again, in high season they can be very busy. The site used to have a fishing lake but this has been drained at some point and it is grassed over. Totally safe for young children now.
