An excellent site with very helpful and friendly staff, a superb location for cycling and walking the Somme battlefields .A gentle stroll of a few minutes from the centre of Albert which is an extremely welcoming little town The facilities are clean and the site well kept .All in all a very enjoyable 2 week stay.
This campsite was excellent for visiting the Somme. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to stay on this site.
Beautiful setting and facilities for us - my wife is wheelchair bound
Summer hols 2013 spent on this site. Very well maintained and clean. Toilet facilities excellent. Wi-Fi only near reception.Well placed for Somme Battlefields explorations. Albert within easy walking distance with good supermarkets. Secure at night but no warden on site 24/7. Only available during daytime. No English spoken. Would go there again. Pitches well spaced and plenty of room. Small river (stream) Ancre just outside site entrance. Nice park at rear of site with pedalos for hire from site hut. Ices also available from site hut.
We stayed on this site for two nights, en route from Calais to the Burgundy area. A quiet site which suited ourselves and the two couples with us in our individual caravans. The facilities were clean, and adequate. The dogs enjoyed their walks around the adjacent lakes, which added to the attraction of the area. The town was a short drive away.
Lovely quiet campsite on the edge of Albert, an easy walk into town. Clean facilities. Good place to stay if visiting Albert and surrounding areas on the Rememberance trail.
Very nice camping beside a river. Pleasant 10 minute stroll into the town of Albert. Sanitary facilities are clean and adequate. Pitches are of a good size, with good covering of well tended grass. Wifi is free and available beside the reception, where there are chairs for users. This site is ideal for people wishing to visit the WW1 sites in the Somme and only 2 miles from the Lochnagar Cratar where the Battle of the Somme started in 1916. Highly recommended.
A lovely campsite close to Albert - an easy short walk into town. Unfortunately the toilets and showers could all do with a DEEP CLEAN and REGULAR cleaning thereafter. Staff are pleasant and helpful.
Chemical toilet emptying facility still does not function and would appear to have been like it for years. Motorhome service point provides chemical toilet emptying but witnessed camper emptying cassette into grey water service pitch drain, also seen by member of staff. Will return but armed with plenty of bleach!
Good municipal campsite 10 minutes walk from Albert centre and well located to visit the Somme monuments.
Friendly welcome in English, choose your own pitch. Facilities are typical French campsite and shared.
Bread van arrives 9am and is very good value, if you miss him the vending machine is refilled at the same time so you can bag a baguette later. Small lake next door popular with the locals. Quiet at night but with the occasional local train. Very happy with our 4 night stay and would return.
Campsite was good, staff not good english even though it says they can speak english on website. Price was good, pitch was a good size, could do with more showers.
Overall a good campsite.
