This is one of our favourite campsites in France. We mainly use it on our way home to Ireland, and always stay a few days, as the facilities and location are excellent.
On this occasion we stopped on our first night, due to late arrival of our ferry.
it was on arrival and checking in, that we discovered we had brought last year\'s
asci card.
This is were I have to give the lady and her team a big big thank you for there help and patience in helping us get a replacement card.
They spent valuable time phoning around stores for stock of the asci books and cards. Eventually we contacted asci, who kindly emailed a replacement. Her son, again, kindly helped me, in printing off the details.
I would highly reccommend this campsite.
5 stars from us. We will be returning, with out doubt on our return journey.

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.

Wir waren schon das 2. Mal da und der CAMPINGPLATZ gefällt uns sehr gut. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und kann schon ganz gut Deutsch.
Das Schwimmbad ist wunderbar sauber und gepflegt.
Leider was das Imbiss nur am We geöffnet. Wir waren sehr zufrieden und kommen bestimmt wieder

Wij gaan al meer dan 3 jaar langs en zijn altijd super tevreden van ons verblijf met de tent. We zouden geen vakantie hebben zonder hier te verblijven in deze mooie natuur en rustige camping.

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.

A very good site. When we arrived we were met by a very friendly, pleasant lady at reception. She spoke very good English and was able to tell us about the local attractions with enthusiasm. She mentioned a shop we should visit and it was amazing. It is called Maison Gosselin and is a shop/grocery with a fantastic range of products and foods. Nice quiet site and you can easily walk into town. Boat trips etc. We will definitely return

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

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.
