We stayed on this site for one night while heading north. It is easy to access from the Autoroute, the pitches are well marked out, large and site is well maintained. We had lovely dinner on-site which was great value for money. The bar has a wide variety of beers on offer and reasonably priced. We will use this site on future travels.

We\'ve tried a number of the sites around Calais now and not found any of them particularly good. In this one the toilet facilities are a little dated and not the most spotless ones. However the site is very close to the autoroute and the welcome was friendly. We didn\'t eat there but the menu looks fine and we spoke to others who said it was good. The pitches near the entrance (new we understand) include a few with fairly good hard standing - that is worthwhile to me. We\'ll use this site again.

Second year we\'ve stopped overnight on our way back to Calais and they\'ve improved the overnight site completely so you have a marked pitch now rather than parking in a field. The facilities are reasonable and the bar and restaurant is good. The site is majority permanent and holiday homes but very well kept. The lake is for fishing only so not much walking for the dog......haven\'t noticed any mosquitos....yet!

We just returned after booking for two nights on this site. Was on a pitch at the back of toilets so bad we got no sleep as soon as you stepped outside the caravan you were greeted with Mosquitos and even though the door or windows were NOT open they got into the caravan and we got badly bittern. Finished up leaving at 6am on so did not complete the stay. The toilets and drains were in desperate need of cleaning. Therefore we paid for two nights and only got one night of hell, would not recommend.
