 A very good location for the ferries of Calais and Boulogne. Also an easy drive to and from cite d'Europe if that's your thing in these days when the euro is not so favourable.
Our pitch was a little small but very neat and tidy. The reception seemed over manned but staff very friendly. Would recommend this site for a first time camper although a little expensive.
The sanitaires were excellent with plenty of hot water and lots of showers. We had an excellent meal at the restaurant and were impressed with the way the staff dealt with 5 groups of people that did not attempt a word of French.
The swimming pool was busy but still most enjoyable with convenient adjacent showers.
The coastal road through Wissant to Boulogne offers lots to see and lovely sand. The war museums are also of interest. Certainly a site we will be returning to.

 We have stayed on this site many times both on arriving in France after getting off the ferry in Calais and also before getting the ferry to come home. Every time we stay there we say that we should spend a bit longer there !

The site is usually busy as it is a popular stop off site but the facilities and the site are well kept. The site is also quiet at night and we have never been disturbed by people leaving early on a morning.

We found a great 'Friterie' (chip shop) in the next village, Ardes during our last visit and enjoyed a pint at the Bar on site listening to a live band that was on.

 Guines is always a great place to stop over, even for a few days. It's a lovely site with plenty character although it is slightly pricey. But we think it's worth it. 15 mins after leaving the Ferry you are in a charming French site.

Pitches are varied and well spaced out with nice little hedges and trees separating them. The toilet block nice and clean and there is a heated one too. Small playpark for the kids and a pleasant bar. Snack bar does great omelette.

The friendly staff work hard to look after the site, it really is well cared for We make sure we spend a few days at Guines every year. It really is a gem.

 We have used this site many times as it is convenient for calais and ferries, Also nice vet in Ardres. Pitches vary in size, many ready errected tents and mobile homes from several tour operaters on site. Toilets and showers spotless copious hot water to showers, basins and washing up sinks. Shop well stocked, bar and take away useful. Spacious site in lovely location. Staff can be officious at times. Reception closed lunchtime and promptly at 8 but late arrivals should contact the bar.

 Well what can I say but absolutely great site.Very friendly staff, the pitch was very big great for a stop over was able to leave car and van hitched up with lots more room. Swimming pool was open until 8pm and the restaurant was very reasonably priced and the wine and food superb.

Facilities were ok but could be improved, ladies showers were a bit manky excuse the vocabulary but everything else great.

 Our second visit this year, so I won't repeat what I have said before, but this is a generally a good site.

A word of warning, if you book this site or indeed any of the the Castel chain camp sites - there is a 15 euro booking charge. We thought this was a reservation charge, but no it is a charge just for booking online. You can telephone the site direct and there will be no charge.

We booked online in January for our visit in August, and this does in no way reserve you a pitch, we were right at the back by the road, which was a bit disappointing.

 We used this site as it was our first visit abroad. It was very clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful. The shop was well stocked and the bar / grill was fine , the beer prices seemed to be on par with most places.
As this was our first trip across the channel we didnt want to go too far so this was the ideal location and would definitely go back.

 Used this site after coming off the ferry as a stopover and going back to the ferry and I was really impressed. Wish I had a couple of nights before our return to the UK. The site has a swimming pool and a playpark. Staff were helpful and friendly.

There was a small resturant on site and the food was ok.

Ideal for a stop over and for last minute shopping before returning to the UK

On both times we used we never had any road noise as we were at the top of the site.

 We have used this site twice, as a base to do last minute shopping before travelling home. Pitches were ok, and toilet blocks were fine. Pool was great especially as it has a cover over it, though did use the outdoor slide in the rain.Children thought that was brilliant.

However we shall not be returning to the site again, as on our last visit in August 2006, we were pitched next to the road and were awoken at 3.45am by the constant, deafening noise of numerous lorries driving past to and from a nearby quarry. Even the children were awoken by the noise (and they sleep through anything!). We cut short our visit. Also found the staff to be courteous but not particularly welcoming.

 Enjoyed our 5 night stay at this park. It is large and busy probably due to it's close proximity to Calais and the ports (only 20 mins drive away) but the facilities and amenities are clean and the grounds are tidy and well kept. Our kids enjoyed the park and swimming pool and there's table tennis too. We didn't use either of the restaurants or the snack bar but the take away came in handy and was reasonably priced. Beware - the site bar charges 4 euros per pint! You can order bread and croissants at the shop which is reasonably well stocked. Ask for a pitch in the middle or towards the back of the park these are slightly larger, afford a bit more privacy and aren't bothered by road noise. Try to avoid the tall trees otherwise the birds singing at 5am will drive you to distraction! Guines is only a 10 minute walk away and if you turn right on leaving the park and follow the road for about 2 miles you'll find LIDL and Champion Supermarkets and a petrol station. We would use this site again and would recommend it to family and friends.
