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.

This site is great. Handy location, friendly at reception and some good facilities for both kids and adults. People have complained of road noise but from the camping pitches it’s no problem at all. Loads to do in the area and the coast is well serviced by the tram. We’ll be staying again.
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!!!!
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.
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.
Arrived today and we are very happy with the pitch and the facilities! Staff have been friendly and helpful. Kids club lovely and well provided for with lots of activities and fancy dress! The lake beach is a lovely place with beautiful soft sand, plenty bins to keep it tidy and lots of helpful staff. Meal in the Chinese restaurant was excellent. Shop could do with being better organised but it has what you need. Just a bit hap hazardly arranged.
The touring pitches are away from the main reception. In the center of static pitches. Toilet facilities clean and usable. Very good site for visiting Brugge and surrounds. There is noise from the nearby motorway but not excessive. Would use again but not in high season as would get extremely busy. Useful stopover from ferry if heading North as only an hour away from the ports.
Perfectly adequate site with nice camping pitches and helpful staff. The close proximity to the motorway means that I will not return.
Very busy with families with children, even out of the school holidays, as the weather was still good. The staff spoke English and were helpful. And the pitch was grassy and easy to put a tent up on. Showers were clean and warm.
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.
