    The area. The potential the site has. The child's play area however a little lacking. The receptionist.

    Disliked: 

    Dilapidated, run down, unkempt and uncared for. Shower blocks need replacing. Grass needs cutting and whole site needs weeding and some serious TLC. The toilets stink; the showers are useless.

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Karen W. Confirmed

  • Electric grass motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Quiet, good sized pitches and lots of grass and trees. Very close to the Eurotunnel, less than 40 minutes. Supermarket is a short walk away, and we can recommend the local Mexican restaurant in the town, also within walking distance.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet/wash block nearest to our pitch was partly locked up and needed refurbishment. We only discovered at the end of our stay that the other block was in a much better state.
    Please note that the restaurant/ bar is only open in July and August.

Worst site we've ever stayed at! 29/08/2017

  • Electric grass motorhome pitch

  • Liked: 

    Location is ideal for early train from coquelles next morn. Close to etaples war cemetery.

    Disliked: 

    Cleanliness and services very dated. Card machine wouldn't work when tried to pay for pitch. Had to pay cash but no card receipt given to show that payment wasn't taken 😡 Showers need a really good clean and the toilets were really stinky. The bar/restaurant wasn't open. Couldn't even buy the kids an ice cream! Also eaten alive by mosquitoes. Not the best place to spend our last evening in France.

    The location was good.

    Disliked: 

    The pitch was very moody and when it rained the inside of our awning turned into a swamp.

From the manager...

Hi,

Thanks for the comment, We are sorry that your stay went wrong.

Actually, we have experienced an exceptionnal bad weather during the week you stayed in our camping.
The important rain and storm made the pitch very moody and the floor had difficulties to evacuate the excess water due to the weather.

We hope you spent a good moment in our camping after all.

See you soon,

Manon

An average campsite which seems to attract some very antisocial guests 14/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Alex G. Confirmed

  • Electric grass motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We did appreciate the quick and easy booking of this night stay. A friendly welcome from reception staff.

    Only a quick drive to Calais

    Disliked: 

    The wash block we tried was worn, cold, and not at all welcoming. After our second tour of France and staying in over 15 campsites in two years, these facilities were below average, and certainly not comfortable. Need updating.
    Security, or lack of it, was the other major factor. Drunk campers returning to tents at 2am and proceeding to play loud music, no visible security guard. A dog owner with a large bull terrier/pitbull sitting in full view of reception with beer can in hand was also extremely worrying. Most French campsites do not allow Cat 1 or 2 dogs, though this dog itself wasn't being aggressive, these types of dogs can be quite unnerving to others.

From the manager...

Mister grant,

We are sorry your stay went wrong. Unfortunetly, the weekend of 15th august is the biggest in France due to the public holiday.
But it happens that unfortunate problem appear, we try our best to solve them and give you the best we can in our camping. We take note of this advise and will improve our sevices.

We hope your next experience in camping la pinède will be better.

Best regards,

Manon

Other more sporty activities include the attraction parks of Aqualud and Bagatelle or tree top adventure park. There is also plenty of culture on offer with Nausicaa, Maréïs,and the various museums in Etaples. Local markets with regional products can also be found in the nearby villages.
