Camping Le Lac D'Orient ****

General information
Guide price €36.00

In the northeastern part of France, just south of the Belgian border, lies the Champagne-Ardenne region. Are you looking to combine camping among the vineyards with a pitch at a very large lake? In that case, set up your caravan at Camping Lac d'Orient. This campsite is located directly on the lake of the same name. The water is surrounded by a gorgeous forested nature area.

Spacious pitches among the trees

Campers who arrive outside the peak season at Camping Le Lac d'Orient can often take their pick from the beautiful and spaciously laid-out pitches. The pitches are located on the playfully landscaped camping grounds. Some fields are long and narrow, whilst others are small and square or rectangular. The rental accommodations are located on a separate part of the campsite.

Facilities and entertainment

The reception, the small campsite shop, the laundry and the indoor swimming pool are located in a modern U-shaped building. Right behind this building, you will find the outdoor swimming pool and the restaurant which serves snacks.

An outdoor swimming pool, an indoor swimming pool and a lake; what more could a water enthusiast wish for? To reach that lake and its fine sandy beach, you only need to leave the campsite and cross the street. Before you know it, you'll be standing with your feet in the sand at the water's edge.

Entertainment in July and August

There is entertainment for all ages in the peak season. The entertainment team organises all sorts of sports activities, as well as dance parties and concerts. You can play a game of volleyball or basketball yourself on the enclosed sports field. Other fun tips: challenge your fellow campers to a game of petanque or work up a sweat on the outdoor fitness equipment.

This campsite is advertised as 4 stars I would struggle to give it 2. The pitch we were allocated had no working electrical point. The same for our neighbours who had already complained. It took 3 visits to reception before anyone came. The whole electric and water point was flooded and stagnant water was evident. When the man came to fix the electric he stood in the water to fix it! The pool was the size of a large paddling pool, the facilities were mixed but the sinks were not specific so there were people washing up in one sink next to someone doing their washing next to someone having a shave. There were no plugs for any sink so all of the above was difficult. The whole site was unkempt and untidy. The fees were on the expensive side as we were out of the ACSI rates.

Nice campsite, with generous pitches of various types. Well manned reception. There are plenty of shady pitches. Toilet & shower facilities good.
Restaurant & bar ok. Didn\'t use the swimming pool but it was very popular. The local area around the lake is lovely and very popular, with beaches, restaurants, beach bars, pedalos, dotted around it. There is a cycle route around.

Gail Norman, on this campsite in July 2018

Lovely campsite, some shaded and some sunny pitches, all good size and most hedged. Fabulous pool area with lots of sunbeds (no shorts for swimming).
New and very modern sanitary block.
Very busy even in off peak season, especially at weekends.
Campsite shop not very well stocked and expensive, morning bread and croissants not great. No local shops - Carrefour about 7km.
Campsite bar and resturant good - especially pizzas.
Plenty of water sports and tourist information on lake, which is just across the road.

We stayed here for 10 days and would certainly use again for a short stop on our journey. Helpful staff. Dog walking (and swimming) across the road on the lake. We didn\'t use the pool and this early in the year there was no entertainment (we like that). We only had take away from the restaurant, but the menu was fairly limited.

Intended on stopping for 1 night, but stayed for 2 and stopped for another 2 nights during our return journey. Site is next to a lovely lake. Excellent cycling around the lake.

Barsar, on this campsite in September 2017

Why: We chose this site because it happened to be in the right place during our journey from Calais to Spain. It was our first stop after Calais. It looked like a nice site with good reviews. We had stayed at the Municipal in Troyes before and were not impressed.
Location: A bit of further from the A26 then I would have liked but worth it.
Check in – As the ACSI rate had kicked in a few days before we were expecting a smooth check in. We were therefore shocked to hear that at 3pm the site was full. After a conversation between the two receptionists it came to light that they did have a ‘Stay and Go’ pitch. These seemed to be for motorhomes which would use the site at night but drive off during the day. We accepted. The pitch was hard standing with just enough space for the car which was fine. A walk around the site confirmed that the place was heaving.
• The shower block we used was modern well maintained and clean. No complaints.
• Swimming pool quite small for the site and very busy late afternoon. Clean and well maintained. Child friendly.
• Bar and restaurant. We didn’t use but it didn’t seem very busy. Everyone seemed to be in bed by 10.15pm
• Small shop selling the basics including fresh bread and croissants to order.
Pros – well placed overnight stop. Very popular with families. Lovely area.
The lake is across the road and is very popular. There are several kiosks nearby selling snacks and drinks. We had a very good pizza at the Italian restaurant immediately opposite the front gate. Very nice walks around the lake and lots of water sports too.
Cons – pitches are marked but no fence or hedge. Little privacy.
Would we use again – yes. Well run, clean well-maintained site in lovely area. Will book ahead next time.

Good friendly welcome with English spoken, pitches are allocated but you are asked if you want shade or sun. Alternative pitches available if you didn\'t like your chosen one. So quiet at night despite its size. Bread sold in the shop, bit expensive and the croissants were heavy going. Excellent bar and restaurant area with good food and service. Toilet block is the best, 3 hooks in the large shower cubicles, lots of hot water, clean, spacious and modern. Only stayed 2 nights but wished we\'d stopped longer and it will be a regular stop on future trips (new supermarket couple miles away on the main road is well worth stopping at too).

We arrived shortly after the storms so the pitches were waterlogged. They were very accommodating and we were able to pitch on a graveled site using our rock pegs. Good clean facilities. Friendly sports bar. Beautiful area. The campsite is large but well broken up. Lots for children to do. Next to a lake with a beach and a short drive to Troyes.

Travelling party: Group of friends

A lovely site with friendly helpful staff, English is spoken.
Because of the wet weather we had to have the caravan on hardstanding which was not a problem as we could put the awning on the grass.
Two toilet blocks one more modern than the other, both were well kept, the modern one having good facilities for disabled people and famiies.
The inside pool water was warm with showers in the building. A good play area for children.
Not a lot of success with free Wifi and it was only available near the bar, socket outside provided.
Fresh bread can be ordered the day before.
The lake is across the road from the site with a lovely walk along the promenade having ice cream stalls along the way.
Into the forest is a very well equipped visitor centre with disabled parking and plenty of walking space.
For Geocachers there are some caches to be found in the area.
This site is well worth a visit and the ACSI price is good value.

What a fabulous site, friendly staff, facilities to die for the showers well better than some hotels I\'ve stayed in, can\'t wait to go back and for this price this is the standard that all sites should try and achieve. Tthank ACSI.
