An excellent site from the very friendly welcome at reception, English spoken, to the generous well tended level pitches with electric and water and the very good toilet/shower facilities. The location is superb within easy level walking of the local harbour and other local sights. Restaurants and nice selection of retail premises in the town. 20 minutes from Cherbourg. Would recommend.

Very comfortable campsite; adequate pitches, privacy, friendly, good clean facilities (with toilet seats and paper - thank you) - stayed for 10 days. So easy to walk into St Vaast for shopping, meals and walks around the harbour. Easy cycling and buses available to nearby towns. Beautiful area with much to see and do. Highly recommended.

Stayed late Sep 2018 for 3 nights. Very presentable site, good size pitch, helpful staff, clean shower blocks with hot water (!), nice location for town and coastal walk, new carefour supermarket with nice coffee bar 1km away. One of ACSI’s better sites.

Convenient site for overnight stay before the ferry from Cherbourg.
Flat site, good sized pitches, we had a large caravan and car with room for table and chairs.
Good location for local shops, walks etc
Our only negative comment is that the roads are quite narrow and make manoeuvring round corners difficult. We suggest you walk to your pitch first and find the best route.
We did not use the bar/ swimming area but it looked alright

Having just returned from here after a 2 week stay i can highly recommend this site, the facilities are spotless, the toilet blocks are the cleanest i have ever seen.Situated in st vaast this site offers grass pitches with electric hook up, 2 toilet and showere blocks, a wonderful swimming pool and a basketball court with bouncy castles for the kids. A short walk into st vaast will lead you to a quaint fishing village with a host of shops, the quay is lined with fishing boats which sell fish direct from the boat on the quay. A carrefour supermarket and netto are at the beginning of the village with reasonably priced fuel pumps. This is a great place to stay for a short break, a long break or stopover on the way to cherbourg, the pitches are pretty spacious but the site is rammed with campervans, only saw a couple of tents, a couple of caravans and we had the only trailer tent, on the whole a quiet well laid out site with spotless facilities. The staff are a credit to the site owners.

Great site. We came for a two day stopover and stayed for a week. Site is calm and the town lovely. New Carrefour Market Supermarket about a mile away with fuel and car wash. Pitches are a good size and well cared for some internal access roads are a little on the tight side for a large unit (7.25 m caravan) so selecting the right pitch might be important particularly if your unit does not have a mover. Final word we will return.

A really lovely campsite with very kind and friendly owners who are only two years in to owning the site. They are doing a great job of it.
Very good, spotless facilities plus two Citron 2CV’s to rent by the day or half day. Town and marina a ten minute walk with excellent restaurants and tourist shops. Supermarket a two minute drive away. We planned a two night stop but stayed for five.

Lovely site, half an hour from Cherbourg. Hedged marked out grassy pitches. Unisex toilet blocks with toilet paper hand soap and hand driers. Separate shower block with push button showers. Both blocks were cleaned frequently and well maintained. Nice outdoor pool too. There was a netto within 2 km and a large Intermarche at about 4km. Short walk to the harbour and town. Lovely area with the Utah beaches nearby.
