To the French marshes! And nature reserve, and sandy beaches, and Lille, Arras and Paris… you'll likely think that the location of Le Clairmarais in the Pas-de-Calais is truly topping.
Let us share how… the campsite is in the Audomarois marshes, a grand big biosphere reserve of over 22,300 hectares, and a two-minute walk from the beaut Romelaëre Nature Reserve, home to all sorts of critters including a colony of great cormorants. Golden beaches are within half an hour's drive, the site is in excellent setting for outdoor activities like canoeing, cycling, mountain biking or hiking in the forest a couple of minutes' stroll away, and cities like Saint-Omer, Bergues, Lille, Arras and Paris are all accessible.
Back at base, Le Clairmarais is a family friendly campsite, with comfy and modern facilities including shower and toilet blocks and a launderette. Kids have a play area to get busy at, while adults can roll up for a game of pétanque; you might not be staggered to hear that this marshy location has fishing on site too.

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’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

There may be a witch at the Romelaëre Nature Reserve a two-minute walk from Le Clairmarais. Bring your binoculars (and your camera), for as well as spectacular landscapes and over 200 species of birds and plants, you may also spy a peek of the witch of the water Marie Grouette…
Also – and somewhat less spookily – a couple of minutes' walk away are the hikes and mountain bike rides of the forest of Clairmarais: look out for birds of prey and grey herons here above the trees and around the water.
The handsome village of Saint-Omer is also on many a tourist agenda in the area, for its gothic Cathedral of Notre Dame and paintings by Rubens, its local history and art at the Museum of the Hotel Sandelin, and the seventeenth century Flemish-style palaces of the village centre.
The café-, shop- and restaurant-lined old streets of Bergues are also nearby, along with the town's famed bell tower used in the film Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis.
Prefer just to bask under the French sun on a white sandy beach? Calais is half an hour away, Dunkirk, Bray-Dunes and Boulogne sur Mer within 45 minutes, and Berck and Le Touquet within an hour.
Le Clairmarais is also an hour from Lille and Arras, and two and a half hours from Paris.
