 This site is no longer called Acacias it has reopened as Camping Cigogne (Camping Storks) as it is next to a stork park. The site is well situated next to the municipal swimming pool and very close to the town. It scores well for convenience. When we visited the bar/shop etc were not open. The grass on the pitches had not been cut and the grass was 6 to 9 inches long. As with a number of sites there are no toilet seats. We were assured that all the electric supplies had been tested before the season started however the boxes needed servicing as it was difficult to take plugs out. All the sockets had reverse polarity and when we pointed this out to the people running the site they told us we were idiots and threatened to call the police even though we had paid in advance. With a little bit of TLC and better manners this could be a good site.

 We stayed here on our way touring down to Zurich. We found the host, a very genial gent, happy to assist, without being pushy or over the top. We were happy with the amenities, (very clean and very hot water) and the pitch was large enough. Because of the design it did not seem to be too crowded, and it had a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Easy walking to the shops for provisions. Please remember this is France, sometimes things don't work or happen as we expect-but isn't this the compelling reason as to why we tour abroad in the first place - to experience different attitudes, cultures and perspectives? The up side could be that although the electrics may take some encouragement to come up to 'our' standards and time keeping can be fluid to say the least, the local patisserie had the most delicious diversions one can imagine. By the photographs it looks as if it has changed somewhat since I was there, but for a very reasonably priced, convenient, well appointed site, one could do a great deal worse. I would recommend this site.

 We stayed at Camping Les Acacias whilst enroute to Italy via Switzerland and the St Gotthard Pass/Tunnel. We had travelled down the toll-free autoroutes until we got south of Nancy and then driven along the N66 through the Ballons de Vosge mountains. The N66 is a good standard single carriageway and is a pleasant drive through a number of small towns. The mountains are not particularly high and gradients are dealt with by easy hairpins. It made a pleasant respite from the autoroutes.

We stopped at Camping Acacias for a break from our long journey and stayed several days. Cernay is a pleasant, riverside town with a good range of shops and several supermarkets, including some in out-of-town retail parks. We were able to have a replacement tyre fitted locally to our caravan after I found splits in a tyre wall.

Camping Acasias is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac in a residential area in walking distance of the town centre. Opposite the gates of the campsite is the municipal sports centre with a range of facilities, including a very good indoor swimming pool. We swam several times. It is interestingly situated next to a stork reserve and one can walk around to see these huge birds nesting on the top of the special nesting poles and strolling around the reserve. The storks are free to come and go and I got some super photo shots of them in flight and neighbouring houses’ chimneys! The campsite does warn not to approach them when they sometimes land in its grounds as they can be a bit “snappy” it seems.

The site was, I think, formerly a municipal site. It is a large park like area of grass broken up with mature trees and some flower beds. It has 2 large toilet blocks with usual facilities. There is a small shop but this only seemed to sell ice cream and sweets and a few basics and was not often open. The bar was closed whilst we were there. The French owner and his wife do not speak any English but were very helpful and we managed to communicate with our “school French”. He was VERY helpful when we were looking for somewhere to replace our damaged tyre. There was plenty of room when we stopped there in late July.

The site is near to the well-established Route de Vins – the local tourist office provides maps for this tour of local vineyards with opportunities for wine tasting. We did not try this ourselves. There is, also, the Route de Crets nearby. This follows the road along the crest of the ridge which overlooks the Rhine with Germany beyond and was used to supply the military emplacements here during both world wars. There are a number of war memorials and museum/visitors centres linked to battles fought there.

I would recommend this site as a pleasant stop-over site and would be happy to go again.
