Camping Klein Strand is situated near Jabbeke, in the Belgian province of West-Flanders. The campground consists of two parts. There is a small area around the lake with the beach, from which Klein Strand derives its name. They have mostly permanent pitches. There is also a second section, which is located on the other side of the Varsenareweg. This section is also used for short-term camping. These pitches are also close to the beach.
In high season both sites have their own reception. During the remainder of the year only the main reception near the lake is open. You will also find a Chinese restaurant and a shop there. Near the other reception is a toddler pool (Pirate pool) with several slides and climbing equipment customised for toddlers.
Spacious pitches and different types of accommodation
The camping site is well maintained and has spacious and somewhat less spacious pitches. For instance, on Klein Strand there are special pitches for tents, although there is no space for your car. You can park your car in the large parking area near the entrance. On the camping site you can rent holiday chalets for max. 6 persons. You can also rent Chalets Corsaire for 2 persons as well as luxury tents (glamping) for up to 6 persons.
Endless water fun
Fun for all in the large lake: swimming, the water slides or swimming in the secured section. You can even take waterski lessons on the lake and in summer there are waterski shows. In the small lake you can fish for bream, carp and eel.

Stayed in caravan 12, it has BED BUGS!!!!!!! Came home covered in bites. My husband and I have been ill due to the severity. My young children also bitten. Had to throw away luggage and some clothing. Stressful unpacking to prevent infestation in my own home.
Manager very rude, firstly saud it was my fault for not checking bed, then called to apologise and offer to cover costs. After sending the bill - no contact!!!!
We stayed in a tent for two nights at Klein Strand. While the campsite probably is quite nice for children with lots of things for them to do, the place gives the impression of only being in it for the money. To shower or do the dishes you pay for every second of warm water. In the showers you can\'t even adjust the temperature and they are not being cleaned often enough. While showering I was standing in dirty water as it didn\'t run down the drain properly.
We didn\'t have our own adapter to use the electricity on our tent pitch and so we rented one from the campsite. They however told us renting and buying was the same price, although when renting you get the deposit back..
Do NOT buy food at the small kiosk on the camp site. As we arrived on a Sunday, no grocery shops were open and we wanted to barbecue. Went to the kiosk and the person working there barely understood English. When he understood we wanted meat for barbecuing he went to the back room and got an open bag of burger patties and took one out without gloves or anything! We immediately said we didn\'t want any and \"ran\" out of the place.. Ended up eating out..
Lots of noise from traffic, music from travelling casino and music from bar.
After it rains the drinking water was filled with dirt. There were no information.
The staff is extremly slow with almost anything.
Nice pitch with trees to cast shadow.
Perfectly adequate site with nice camping pitches and helpful staff. The close proximity to the motorway means that I will not return.
This is a big site split into 2 with one only for statics & the other statics & caravans/camper vans. The part where the lake & beach, shop, restaurants etc has a lot of statics which are very VERY run down, some with windows smashed, even some just 'shells'. This lets the site down and could be dangerous for unsupervised kids (and there were a LOT of these). The beach & lake area is actually very nice. On the other site the caravan/tent pitches vary in size. There is also a snack bar and bar here. Useful site for the Zebrugge ferry and the pleasant bus ride into Brugge. TIP - most of the alcohol in the Brugge shops can be bought for a fraction of the price in supermarkets !
We stayed here because it is well-placed for visiting Bruges, but overall an odd campsite. Clearly popular with regular visitors, Klein Strand has a small lake bordered by a busy motorway. Hard to see why people would come here for their holidays rather than go to the coast, the water slides looked fun though. We visited in the off season when the touring site was quiet, except for a group of travellers/traders, a couple of whom were a bit threatening when we bumped into them. Modern, well-heated washblock, with a convoluted wristband system for the showers which was a pain. Bus to Bruges was slow and busy. Helpful staff who spoke good English. Good value with ACSI card but would not rush back.
We arrived on a day we knew was a bank holiday, but we turned up to find the site entrance engulfed in the biggest market/car boot we have seen for a long time. Nothing had been put in place to manage the arrival and departure of site guests and it was totally chaotic.
Other reviews cover most things. Pitches were hedged and pretty but a good proportion are very difficult to access with a larger caravan if you have no mover. Toilets could have been cleaner. The motorway noise we found to be intrusive.
We felt the site did not offer good value and then having to pay extra for showers.
Very handy for Bruges by bus or car.
We would only suggest this site for an overnight stop or a brief visit to Bruges, but judging by how busy it was not everyone would agree with us!
This site is in a good location for an overnight stop and/or visiting Brugge. The camping pitches are large. But it is a large site and noisy. There is road noise from the motorway and, despite requesting a quiet pitch, we were sited next to teenage campers playing loud music and dogs which barked whenever we went outside. There was also some building work going on. On a 2 month trip it was the most expensive site we stayed on but not the best. We even had to pay extra for showers. However, we would stay here again because of its location but only for a brief stop.
Have used this site before prior to UK return. It has a bit of everything for everyone, but some of the staff and the organisation in general put a damper on things. Other reviewers have covered most of the problems, and for me this year was worse than last due to a motorbike rally that overcrowded the pitches to an extent that toilet facilities were barely coping. Proberbly my last visit.
The site is very convenient for an overnight stop if you are travelling to/from Calais to Germany. Although close to motorway, not very noisy. Convenient if you want to catch bus into Bruges.
Reasonable size pitches and clearly marked out. Toilets very dirty.
First site we used with ACSI card and charged for dog in error.
