Wir waren auf der Rückreise, nach einer Reifenpanne, für eine Nacht auf dem Platz. Wurden dort sehr herzlich begrüßt und haben uns noch ein Essen bestellt. Das wurde uns an unseren Stellplatz gebracht-war sehr lecker und für uns war die Welt wieder in Ordnung.
Uns haben besonders die wunderschönen Baumhäuser und schwimmenden Häuser gefallen - alles sehr liebevoll gemacht ! Wir werden wiederkommen um einmal in einem Baumhaus zu übernachten.

Wij waren begin juni op doorreis naar Zuid-Frankrijk en kwamen hier terecht. De plaats was ruim, maar het dchtsbijzijnde elektrapunt was ruim 25 meter verder. De eurostekker paste niet, en randaardestekker ook niet,
Gelukkig konden we bij een Duitse kampeerder bijpluggen.
De douches gaven koud water en waren net als de toiletten smerig.
De volgende dag vertrokken we rond negen uur \'s ochtends. Receptie dicht! Een paar dagen later gemaild om de betaling te regelen. Uiteindelijk moesten wij ruim het dubbele van het tarief betalen.
Dit was de eerste keer, maar ook de laatste keer, dat we hier verbleven!

il y a erreur sur le guide : la période d\\\'ouverture du domaine mentionnée :1/3 au 31/12 ne s\\\'applique qu\\\'aux mobil-home et différents bungalows ( sur le lac , dans les arbres) . Compte tenu de la météo exceptionnelle du mois d\\\'octobre la direction du domaine a accepté les campeurs jusqu\\\'aux vacances de Toussaint , ce qui nous a permis d\\\'en profiter lors de notre séjour pour la nuit du 16 au 17 octobre dernier . site remarquable par sa situation, ses équipements et la qualité de la réception .

Eigentlich abwechslungsreich gestalteter Camping (Schwimmbad, Angelsee, Seilpark etc.), der aber ein ausgesprochen schlechtes Sanitär aufweist (sehr unsauber, keine WC-Brillen, kein WC-Papier, alt). Wir blieben daher nur eine Nacht.

We zijn hier in augustus geweest met jonge kinderen. Er stonden zeer weinig kinderen in hun leeftijd op de camping. Dat was het enige grote nadeel van de camping. Ze miste vriendjes. Veel trekkers waarvan de meeste Frans waren. Verder prima camping die in weder opbouw is. Sanitair is verouderd maar schoon, wel vragen wij ons af of het toereikend is als de camping vol staat. Leuk natuur zwembad met strand en barretje. Het klimpark is in een woord geweldig!!

Sanitär ist unsauber, z.T. defekte Lampen. Sehr weitläufiges Gelände.
Der Badesee ist ohne Aufsicht und daher sehr unsauber. Hundeplätze fehlen und sind auch nicht separiert.
Autos fahren innerhalb des Geländes bis über 24:00, sehr lästig.

Hebben hier op 7 juni een nacht gestaan. Vonden het acceptabel voor een doorreis. Sanitair niet erg onderhouden.

Het zwembad ziet er geweldig uit met zijn zandstrand, het meer waar de huisjes op drijven is leuk evenals het klimbos, de kipjes, geitjes en de ezels. Een gezin met kinderen zal zich hier best vermaken. De plaatsen zijn erg ruim, gras op de meeste plaatsen. Heerlijk stil. De toiletten zagen er niet fris uit, de douches zijn ontzettend klein, het gedeelte waar jezelf je af kunt drogen is piepklein. Niets om je spullen op te zetten (wel 2 haken). Sanitair gebouwen (er was er maar 1 open) zagen er slecht onderhouden uit. Absoluut geen 4 sterren camping wat betreft het sanitair!!! Wifi alleen bij de receptie en restaurant zei men....maar zelfs daar geen ontvangst (ook niet met de laptop die er stond voor de gasten) en men haalde de schouders op toen wij vroegen of dit altijd zo was en men ging gewoon door waar men mee bezig was.

Für eine Zwischenübernachtung in Ordnung aber für unseren Geschmack kein Urlaubsplatz.
Um nochmals zu übernachten jederzeit aber mehr nicht.

Tennis en midgetgolf zijn gratis. Grote, door heggen afgescheiden plekken met behoorlijk veel schaduw. Je plaats wordt bepaald, indien je daar niet tevreden mee bent kan je, indien beschikbaar, een andere uitzoeken. Douches lekker warm en zelf regelbaar, maar niet zo groot en wat verouderd. Wordt wel goed schoon gehouden. 1 wasmachine en 1 droger is iets te weinig voor de grootte van de camping. Heerlijk groot zwembad. De camping wordt zeer goed bewaakt en onderhouden. Door de vele meren in de buurt vooral \'s avonds veel muggen. Wordt veel als overnachtingscamping gebruikt maar is zeer goed voor langere tijd. In onze periode altijd plek.
