General

  • Lakeside site between Cherbourg and Mont Saint-Michel
  • Waterpark with pool and paddling pool, four-track slide and whirlpool
  • Free fishing, two adventure playgrounds and pedalo hire

Previous guests rave about this site’s well-appointed facilities, its family-friendliness and its handy Normandy setting, an easy kilometre from its local settlement of Haye du Puits.

The Camping L'Etang des Haizes vicinity sets guests up for holidays of all flavours, providing plentiful outdoor activity and sightseeing options around the locale, from horse and donkey rides and pedals along local cycle paths, to beaches, an adventure park and canoeing within 10, plus a golf course and a spectacular coastal walk around Cape Carteret within 20.

Days spent on site are bound to go swimmingly too, at the ample facilities to amply occupy guests of all ages: first off, the aquatic area has a roomy pool and a four-track slide to whizz down, a whirlpool to bubble away in and a paddling pool where teenies can jump in for safe splashtime.

The pool is right next to a lake where guests can fish for carp freely (sans licence), pootle about in a hired pedalo or simply settle down among the peaceful surrounds, perhaps even with a picnic (keep your peepers peeled, says the site team, for the lake’s greedy resident ducks).

Elsewhere on dry land, there are two playground areas with slides, a rope bridge and outdoor toys, and a kids' club with activities, games and creative play. Foodwise, shops, restaurants and a weekly Wednesday market in La Haye du Puits are all within a kilometre.

    This was the second year we have visited this site as a stop gap on our way to Cherbourg from the South of France. It never disappoints. The staff are super friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The kids love the pool and the slides. The toilet blocks are always clean and you never have to queue for a shower or loo. Large pitches and the family enjoyed the fishing. Didn't need to use the WIFI so can't comment. Will be coming year after year. Thank you

    The atmosphere here is great! Fab pool with slides and a lovely outdoor eating area. There is a small playpark that the kids loved running around. Most pitches have apple trees, although we didn’t eat them.
    Fishing lake included on the site and lots of fish to catch.
    Great location, central to a lot of places and easy access.
    Facilities are great! Launderette on site. Toilet and shower blocks are always being cleaned throughout the day. Staff are super friendly and so helpful.
    There is entertainment for everybody too & the younger kids seemed to enjoy it a lot!
    Food was delicious and you get a ton of chips.

    Disliked: 

    Very small food menu choice... this place could sell a lot more if it did more.

From the manager...

Many thanks for your stay and comment. Unfortunately, only for a few weeks in summer, a food business is too complicated to organise at the moment. We'll keep this recurent request in mind. Patrice and team.

    Stayed for 8 nights. We had a great time. Enjoyed a well maintained pool, nice bar and very well looked after grounds including the washing facilities etc. Very friendly staff, always helpful and pleasant.

    Disliked: 

    What could be better? You can’t change the weather! A more expansive food offering would be great and would keep more people on the campsite in the evenings especially for motor homes or campers that cannot travel as
    much as cars. Current menu is ok and tasty but restricted. WiFi should be complimentary on site, within the club house area nowadays. I should be expecting similar coverage to a hotel.

From the manager...

Thank you for your visit and commet. We'll work on amending what could be better in the futur. Welcome again. Patrice and team.

Directions


Local attractions

There’s a fair bit to do within a kilometre, from scenic horseback tours and sedate donkey rides to pleasant pedals along local cycle circuits.

Also within easy reach are canoeing and kayaking, archery, and mountain bike hire at the leisure base of Saint Sauveur le Vicomte, where there’s also an adventure tree-climbing centre. An 18-hole coastal golf course is a short drive away at Saint-Jean-de-la-Rivière.

For a pleasant and family-friendly seaside resort, head to the spectacular sandy beach of Barneville-Carteret, also a lively fishing and sailing port with boat connections to the Channel Islands for seafaring sightseers. Coastal hikes can be had from here too: get onto the Douaniers footpath for a seaview promenade around Cape Carteret.

The World War II Normandy landing beaches of Utah, Sainte-Mère-Église and Omaha are within an hour's drive.
