Stayed one night but a scenic area to explore for a longer stay. Not time to cycle round the smaller part of the lake but nice walk. The local villages very quaint. Pitch large and level enough in a lovely setting. Toilet and shower facilities clean but not enclosed against the elements in cooler weather.

Lovely site - in the woods, so expect uneven sloping ground and debris from trees. About 2-3 km from boulangerie and bar/restaurant. 100m from Lac du Der with its cycle track all round it. There's surely a plot for everyone, whatever your requirements (out of season)

This site should be taken off the ACSI sites list as it is so bad. My pitch was very uneven with stones and holes and practically no grass. The unmade road through the site was bad and I was glad I wasn't towing a caravan. If I had children with me I wouldn't have stayed. I was only there for one night and stayed because it was already too late to find another site.

The photos of this site imply that it is on the lakeside. It certainly is not. The photos show a nearby playground that is not part of the campsite, with the lake behind it.

The entrance looked like a building site as heavy machinery was being used for some building project. The actual pitches were very stony and some were difficult to access. Toilet facilities were basic. The whole site had an air of neglect. We won't be returning.

Made very welcome on arrival, including our two dogs. Free choice of pitch, some too difficult for our large outfit. Toilet facilities clean, open air so no smells! Location lovely with excellent cycling and walking.

I must try to remain objective about this site, as despite it being very convenient for the toll-free cut through from the South via Saint Dizier. it does convey a general feeling of heavy neglect. Weeds absolutely surrounded the toilet block (they could have been picked out by one person in half a day & made to look so much better), and the hideously muddy pitches could have done with a healthy dose of gravel (Im no fan of gravel, but the owner even admitted the mud was a problem). Although the site was undoubtably close to the lake, you got no feel of this, as it is totally invisible from the site... A big clue is the absolutely horrendous mosquitos who alight on you the second you keep still!

I only say these things because it is a pity that more effort wasn't expended on the place... Having said that, it felt close to nature & we will return (if not desperately quickly)...
A message to the owner..: Please help yourself by weeding around the toilet block... Plant some plants too...
