Pleasant location by the river with the towns of St Marcel & Argenton within walking distance. Easy access to Voie Verte for cycling. BUT fresh water only available from sink in facilities block (outside point directly above black waste emptying point). Some pitches needed long EHU lead and some only accessible over campsite road. No boulangerie close by & no bread delivery out of season. Busy feel with most units using it as an overnight stay.

Validity period of the latest book did not match this app therefore we were charged high season prices whereas the book said we still had a couple of days of validity left!!? Otherwise a lovely place

Firstly, the only good thing about this site is its location next to a scenic river. There are not many electric hook up points. You will need an extension lead. Water supply is in the shower blocks. Out of season one shower block shut, also mixed sex shower and toilet blocks. Grassed area unkept and dog mess on grass. It says near to town, its quite a walk, maybe better on bikes. Reception area and cafe seating area is very scruffy. I would not choose to stay here again.

Reaction from the campsite 24 October 2017

désoler pour le désordre,les travaux de rénovation n'étant pas terminer car la réception et nos bloc sanitaire étant refait a neuf.
nous sommes a 5 minutes du centre ville a vélo.
nous espérons vous revoir l'or d'un prochain séjour pour constater les amélioration.

Lovely location, a short walk to the town. No toilet paper is provided, and none for sale on site, so come prepared!

This is a very pleasant, well-laid out municipal campsite within 15 minutes walk of Argenton sur Creuse. It is a very clean site with excellent sanitary facilities and a helpful manager who spoke some English. It is right by the river which our dog really enjoyed splashing about in and there is a very pleasant river walk which can be accessed directly from the site. The bread van visits each morning. Internet is free which is a real bonus. Recommended as a stopover or for a longer stay.

A pleasant campsite just outside of the very picturesque town of Argenton-sur Creuse. The river at its associated walks are a real plus as is the surrounding area. Recommended.

Site very pleasant and facilities OK. The walk into town starts well, by the riverside, but degenerates into a rather long struggle through a scruffy area (not helped by roadworks when we were there). It certainly takes more than 15 mins to the town centre!
