Receptioniste spreekt alleen Frans en slaat daarom de nodige informatie maar liever over. Belachelijke dure Wifi. CampingCard ACSI kortingperiode klopt niet met de site en ACSI-gids. Op 10 -7-2013 al de normale prijs betaald terwijl in de gids t/m 14-7-2013 stond vermeld. Slim, maar niet heus. Komen hier niet meer terug. Gaat niet om het bedrag, maar om 't principe. Voelden ons bedonderd.

Interesting campsite, just across the road from the lake. Hard pitches, making pitching tent difficult.
Very noisy till late at night due to youth unsupervised around the site.
Toilets etc not well cleaned, floors left very wet, so immediately dirty again as soon as anyone entered.
Won't be coming back.

The campsite is very attractive and plots a good size. However we were unused to camping on hard gravel surfaces and bent 5 tent pegs (using a mallet) before my husband thought about using a screwdriver and hard hammer and we could just pitch our tents. It seemed the other campers had the same problem. The toilet blocks were good and clean. The playground was small but OK. This campsite's main draw is its beauty and tranquility. The lakeside setting was very special and the beach was beautiful. There are no places to eat - only a mobile van selling fast food. The camp shop was very very poor - just selling a few local things. However, there is a Carrefour in the next village (car ride). My husband sailed his boat here and we had a great weekend. Expect hard surfaces, quiet and take most of what you need and you'll have a lovely time. The lake is great for swimming and it is a beautiful spot.

We were disappointed with this site. The surroundings were beautiful and we were expecting a peaceful four day stay. However, unexpectedly, a live band was playing for the first two nights of our stay and the music filled the camp site and went on until the early hours of the morning. The other problem was the lack of clean toilet facilities. There were no toilet seats, wet toilet paper on the ceiling and some unknown substance smeared on the cubicle walls at least for the length of our stay. Because of the noise and lack of clean facilities we cut our stay to two nights.

Camping attrayant, ombragé, avec de beaux emplacements. Mais très bruyant la nuit (entrée de voitures, voix). Par contre le jour impossible de rentrer entre 12h00 et 15h00.où est la logique ? ?
Pas d'eau chaude au sanitaire 2

This site is a disgrace. It should not be listed by ACSI. The only good thing is the area in which it is situated.

Hoewel we maar 1 nacht op deze camping op doorreis verbleven, geef ik toch mijn mening. Wat mij opvalt in de Acsi camping gids is dat er met geen enkel woord over het sanitair wordt gesproken. Ik begin te vermoeden als dat het geval is, het sanitair werkelijk te slecht is voor woorden. Zo vies en onverzorgd hebben wij het sinds de 70-er jaren niet meer meegemaakt. Misschien toch een aandachtspunt voor de Acsi-inspecteur?
Voor het overige: brood was wel te bestellen, maar was helaas voor 9 uur niet af te halen. Op doorreis is dit echt een minpunt.

During stay of 1 week there was seemingly only 1 sanitary block open and there were about 50 Dutch teenagers staying most of the time (they had 8 minibuses). They left the sanitary block in a filthy state each day and the only effort all the time we were there was to clean the floor leaving it very wet so that it immediately got dirty again when campers walked in from the site. The basins in both the shower area and dishwashing and laundry areas were never cleaned. One sink in the dishwashing area was full of a filthy greasy red liquid all the time we were there and remained so on the day we left.
I do not believe it compatable to have such a large number of teenagers on a campsite if other campers/caravanners are expected.

Meget beskidte toiletter. Toilet og baderum virker gamle og meget slidte. Må bruse i koldt vand og lyset slukkes midt i det hele hvis du er alene i rummet. Hadicaptoiletterne er ikke velegnet til handicappede, da der blot er stillet en stol op og rummet er større. Døren hænger så den skal løftes når den skal lukkes/låses. Pladserne trænger til vedligeholdelse. Jeg vil absolut ikke anbefale stedet. Beliggenhed: stedet ligger ved Badesøen hvor der er lavet strand. Der kan lejes kanoner/ kajakker. Hunde og heste smider efterladenskaber, der ryddes ikke op efter dem. På både strand og pladsen. Man skal være forberedt på udfordringer hvis hvis man har stor campingvogn/ træk efter sig. ( >10 meter). Meget hård jord at slå plukker i.
