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

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

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.

Hebben gelukkig maar 1 nacht gestaan. Sanitair is ondermaats . De camping is super mooi gelegen aan de oever van een prachtig meer, maar de camping zelf is hoogdringend aan renovatie toe. Persoonlijk hadden wij wel een mooie plaats voor de caravan.
De receptie gesloten van 12h00 tot 15h00 in de middag. Broodservice maar vanaf 9 uur in de morgen.
Spijtig dat de toestand van het sanitair niet vermeld is in de ACSI gids.

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.

Stayed here on August 19th 2014 - very nice campsite - beautiful setting - good facilities - rained a lot - but would imagine when sunny absolutely glorious.

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.

Camping très bien situé, le lac est propre, pavillon bleu! Mais comme tous les lacs ou rivières , avec plage de sable, l\'eau est remuée et semble trouble, ce qui ne veut pas dire qu elle soit sale! Le camping manque de discipline, il faut virer les familles qui degradent les sanitaires. Personnel un peu laxiste! Essai d\'animation, persévérez, vous êtes sur la bonne voie!

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.
