Well maintained and comprehensive camping site

This camping site, which is easy to reach, is located on a flat site with lovely grass. Le Cormoran is a well laid out, neat and comprehensive camping site. Close to the reception you will also find tourist information, a shop, bar and restaurant with pizzeria. The roads over the camping site are paved and signposted so that you can easily find your camping pitch.

stayed over on the way back to Cherbourg a lovely campsite right on the beach, a little quite around the area ie shops etc but handy to all the dday features along the coast , stayed on 11/12 june and fairly quiet on site heavy rain some days before and some pitches waterlogged but soon dried out, helpful English speaking staff 1st class toilets and shower block / washing up facilities with red hot water, large pitches with good degree of privacy, nice site.

A large site right on Omaha beach and not too far from Utah and Juno. Good sized pitches and excellent shower facilities. The receptionist gets confused with pitch numbers and who\'s where. It took a lot of walking around the large site (cant take car through until you have your pitch sorted) before we found that the pitch allocated to us had already been taken then we had to find an alternative. Not what you want after a long drive. Once settled though we were happy with the site. Lovely to be able to walk onto the beach. I would happily recommend Le Cormoran just hope the receptionist can sort out the pitches.

This site was very busy when we arrived as it was the weekend before the D Day Landing celebrations. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The pitches were very spacious and very easy to get on and off. They were divided into groups of 4 or 5 pitches which made them peaceful and private.
The facilities were clean and were maintained regularly. The site was full and there was sometimes a queue for the showers, but they were plentiful and there was more than one block so you could have tried elsewhere as opposed to waiting.
The staff spoke good English (and other languages).

Amazing site. Right on the beach. We have been visiting this site for many many years and it has developed into a great facility. Near to Normandy landings. Close to Cherbourg. Right on the beach . Perfect for kids as has a farm horse riding and lots of activities.

Stayed here so that we would have a dog friendly beach near by, great beach, good dog friendly site. Facilities nice and clean with plenty of hot water. Nice large pitches some have their own private facilities if required. Good stop if travelling from Brittany to Normandy. Site gates are supposed to close at 11pm and open at 7am, but travelling workers seemed to manage to get in and out after 11 and before 5.30 which can be annoying.

Travelling party: Family with children <4 years

Nice well located campsite, in close proximity to Utah Beach, St Mere Eglise and other WWII places of interest.

Large camping pitches, small farm for kids, baby play area, games room, nice indoor heated pool and two outdoor pools, 1 small waterslide.

We stayed in September so out of season hours mentioned below:

The bar only opened for 2½ hours each evening, from 5pm to 7.30pm - not too convenient.

Shop on site that opens for a few hours in the morning and a few hours in the evening, lots of Fresh bread but get down early if you want croissants as they sell out fast. Prices reasonable.

Fast food available from 6pm to 8pm Pizza\'s and French fries only - Pizza\'s are delicious but the French Fries were not very nice.

Not too much walking distance from the campsite - we found it a nice relaxing stop on the way back to our ferry in Cherbourg.

Super campsite, helpful English speaking staff, big pitches many fully serviced. Cars can be hired on the site which is useful for Motorhomers. Close to Utah Beach and St Mere Eglis for WW11 museums. Nice clean Swimming pool. Flat quiet roads in the area for cyclists.
