Ce camping gagnerait en qualité à mon sens en développant des espaces délimités et surtout aplanis, sa situation sur une colline ou la pente est restée naturelle ne permet que peu de situations à l'horizontal.

Leuke camping. Barbecue-avond was goed verzorgd en we genoten van de Franse live muziek. Hele ruime kampeerplaatsen. Leuke fietstocht met fiets georganiseerd voor kinderen.
