- Seaside site 20 metres from the D-Day landing beach of Utah
- Heated indoor pool, outdoor pool and paddling pool
- Mini farm, bouncy castle, playground, games room and trampolines
For a spot 20 metres from Utah beach among the spectacular setting of World War II’s Normandy Landings and, of course, easy access to Normandy sands, swims and watersports, bagging oneself a pitch at Camping Le Cormoran comes highly recommended.
As well as having a splendid setting among the smashingly scenic lands of the Marais du Cotentin et du Bessin Natural Regional Park for an excellent variety of outdoorsy pursuits such as hiking, horse riding and fishing, this site’s locale also has lots of historic spots to explore without guests needing to venture too far, including the Airborne Museum in Sainte-Mère-Eglise and the German battery at Azeville, both within 15 minutes’ drive.
But when remaining very comfortably on base, there’s more than plenty to do too: when water-based activity calls, park yourself alongside the pretty pool to bask under the Normandy skies, or during times of inclement weather (or to save your skin from the French sun), switch instead to the pool indoors.
For times when extra energy needs to be expended out of the water, stir oneself to get sportif at the pétanque court or the multisports area, where you’ll happily find all the necessary facilities for games of football, volleyball and basketball, or head to the fitness area to raze a few croissant-induced calories.
Small peeps have plenty more to do besides with a paddling pool, a playground with a bouncy castle and trampolines for energised bouts of boinging around, pedal karts to pootle (/race) about in, and a games room with table football, a pinball machine and ping pong tables at which to challenge new pals to a sporting dual.
And there’s yet more: littlies who regularly profess their fondness for all things furry will likely be beside themselves when they discover the site’s mini farm, which is where they can totter over to to make the acquaintance of its resident goats and other highly cute critters.
Aside from all the above, activities for offspring of all ages to get wholly stuck into are arranged during the summer months, as are activities for all ages to pursue, from horse riding, archery and fishing excursions to concerts, dances and themed evenings.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.

The famed sands of Utah Beach are a mere 20 metres away, and several other historic D-Day sites are also a cinch from Camping Le Cormoran, including the Airborne Museum and annual D-Day commemorations in Sainte-Mère-Eglise, the German batteries near the village of Saint-Marcouf, and the seafront Utah Beach Museum. Further afield, Cherbourg’s port and the 17 aquariums and sea-themed exhibitions of the town’s maritime museum are well worth the 40-minute drive.
Peeps partial to a spot of putting are also well catered to around here, with the spectacularly scenic 18-hole course of Golf de la Presqu'île du Cotentin an easy 13-minute drive away in Fontenay-sur-Mer, with a green that stretches across 60 acres and provides smashing vistas out over Hougue Bay.
For outdoor activity elsewhere, Camping Le Cormoran’s setting among the Marais du Cotentin et du Bessin Nature Park provides plenty of options: there’s an overnight carp fishing trail at Chef-du-Pont, 20 minutes away by car, and a horse riding centre in Sainte-Mère-Eglise should one fancy hopping atop a horse for an equine adventure. Watersports are within easy reach too, with sand yachting on Utah beach available from a centre in Sainte-Marie-du-Mont.
