General information

Camping Le Vélodrome is a campsite with 75 touring pitches. During low season, between 01/04 - 26/06 and 23/08 - 11/10, the nightly rate is €15,- at one of the 75 touring pitches at Camping Le Vélodrome in Albert (Somme). At this campsite you can not only use your CampingCard ACSI for inexpensive camping, you can also use your ACSI Club ID (as an alternative ID).

The campsite is located on the River Ancre and by several well-stocked fishing lakes. There is a free practice range for golf with 5 holes next to the site. The area around Albert formed the front line during the attacks of the Somme in 1916. The many graveyards and monuments are a silent witness to this. There is a special area for motorhomes.

Camping is vooral voor korte periode of doortrekkers. Veel Britten, omgeving is ideaal voor bezoeken van de slagvelden uit WO II, vandaar ook de vele Britten. Maar wij zijn er 3 dagen geweest en je kunt er goed fietsen en de routes voor de herdenkingsplaatsen volgen. Camping is prima, niet supermodern, echt een municipal. Wifi alleen bij de receptie.

Nice site within walking distance of Albert. Very close to the Somme battlefields and memorials. Pitches quite large. Showers ok but need some work, although clean.

Prima doorgangscamping maar wie de Tomtom volgt vanuit Nederland komt aan de achterzijde terecht waar je met de caravan niet door kunt.

we stayed three days the week before the hundred year anniversary of the battle of the Somme the toilets are clean but unisex motorhome pitches hard standing,quite à lot to do and see in and around Albert,very saddening when you see all the grave yards and memorials if possible visit the Poppy Cafe for a good cheap meal.

Ein freundlicher Empfang, Sanitär einfach, aber sauber und immer heißes Wasser zum Duschen. Ein guter Ausgangspunkt für die Besichtigung von Amiens und Arras aber auch zu den Schlachtfeldern des 1. Weltkrieges.

eignet sich gut sowohl als Durchreiseplatz, wenn man in die Normandie/Bretagne fährt ,wie auch als Dauerplatz, freundliches Personal, schöne und gepflegte Anlage. Supermarkt und Tankstellen in der Nähe. Man ist gut aufgehoben

Stayed in September 2015. Only used this as an overnight stay. Unisex toilets, paper was on the wall outside the cubicles, Hot showers. Reception was closed on arrival, but just chose a pitch and settled up in the morning. Lovely short walk around the fishing lakes

Prima camping. Mooie omgeving met diverse mogelijkheden. Met name 1e wereldoorlog fietsroute. Wij wilden ook gebruikmaken van het golf-oefenterrein met 5 holes, zoals omschreven. Het oefenterrein was er, maar de 5 holes zijn niet te vinden.

Lovely setting next to a park/lakes. Large grassy pitches, we had our own water & drainage. Unisex toilets had no seats, very often no paper. no soap in dispenser BUT washbasin didn\'t work anyway! Chemical toilet didn\'t work so had to empty in camper van waste unit. Short walk into Albert centre. Good base for WW1 cemeteries etc. Reception very limited opening hours but if not open just find a pitch and let them know later.
