General

  • Bordering the Canche Bay Nature Park with Canche estuary views
  • Five minutes' drive from Étaples; 15 from Le Touquet; 40 from Calais
  • Shop, bar, restaurant, takeaway, games room and big playground

Make Camping La Pinède a stopover on your way to or from Angleterre… or pitch up here as a base for pootling around Pas-de-Calais, the Opal Coast, the Canche river, swish Le Touquet Paris-Plage, theme park and waterpark days… all less than an hour's drive from the Eurotunnel and Calais.

Bordering a nature reserve with views of the Canche river estuary, Camping La Pinède is in green surroundings about five minutes' drive from the northern France commune of Étaples, an old fishing port on the Canche river that's also home to a military cemetery with thousands of Allied graves from the two world wars.

It's under 10 minutes' drive from here to the beach at Sainte Cécile and about 15 from Le Touquet, in an area of dunes and sands, forest and countryside, making up plentiful trails for hiking, cycling and horse riding. Sailing, yachting, canoeing and a leisure centre are available within a kilometre of the site, fishing within three and horse riding within four. The Canche Bay Nature Park is an easy 100 metres away.

La Pinède is a family-friendly site, with a safe play area and plenty of room to wander about on walks or laze about on a sunbathing session.There's a shop, bar, restaurant and takeaway to sort your foodie and drinkie needs; a big and well-equipped play area to occupy the kids, and a games room for indoor days. A large supermarket is 600 metres from the site, accessible via a peaceful cycling path.

If you are indeed arriving here on your way to and/or from Grande-Bretagne and are a native of that land, you should also make room on site for a round or two of pétanque, that most French game that's practically obligatory in these parts.

Lovely, conveniently placed, reasonably priced and friendly site.14/08/2020

  • Liked: 

    A really convenient site for a stopover on the way to Calais, which felt like a bonus holiday night rather than a stopover. Finding the site was easy and the staff were friendly. The facilities appeared good although we didn’t see the whole site. There was a lovely, friendly atmosphere around the site.

    Disliked: 

    Not really a ‘dislike’ of the site, but would recommend taking insect repellent. It was probably just the time of year, but we were bitten a lot. Would also have been helpful to have information about the site (ie a map of facilities, bins, water points etc) when we arrived. A small point though and we would definitely go and stay again.

    Friendly helpful staff on reception

    Disliked: 

    Everything. Toilets old and tatty. Could do with knocking down and starting again. Large group of campers who were very noisy shouting instead of talking then played music at about 9.30 pm that was so loud we could hear it from the pitch which we moved to because of the noise. As I said we moved pitch so we were further away but it was still horrendous. Add this to the train track running one side of the site with trains at all hours and the busy road the other side of the site it was possibly the worst place we have stayed in a long time. We won’t be going back even for another stopover.

    A nice basic site with all we needed for a 4 night stay. Check in was easy, the site has good sized pitches which we were free to choose. The toilet block was clean and the facilities were suitable for our needs. The trains, mentioned in previous reviews, were not a big issue to us and as started previously, stopped running around 23:00.
    Happy to stay again in the future.

Directions


Local attractions

Camping La Pinède's setting a few kilometres from Étaples-sur-Mer is close to hikes and bike rides in protected coastal areas, family days out at theme and water parks, and long lengths of spectacular beaches for sunbathing and watersports.

If you're a wildlife watcher, it's a minute's stroll from here to the Canche Bay Nature Park and its surrounds, to spy warblers and other feathered species, as well as mammals such as foxes and wild boar, and slippery sorts including toads and newts.

A drive of 15 minutes or so westwards towards the coast will land you at the famed and posh resort of Le Touquet, aka Paris by the sea. The beach here is lush for basking on and swimming from, and the cycling here is mighty as Le Touquet has hosted four Tour de France races. The town's Centre Equestre has several horse riding centres if you'd like to arrange a beach-based canter.
