- Friendly site half an hour's drive from Calais in Tournehem-sur-la-Hem
- Two kilometres from walks and bike rides in the Tournehem forest
- Bar-restaurant on site, with entertainment in high season
Being just half an hour’s drive from Calais, ferry-bound folks may well look upon Camping Bal as something of a handy stopover spot. You’d be welcome to pitch up here for just a night, of course, but if you’re not in a rush to hit the road there’s much to be said for dawdling around in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais for a lengthier stay.
Days around here might involve trotting through the Tournehem forest, paddling canoes along the Audomarois Marais waterways, learning about wartime history at La Coupole, or heading back to the coast for beach days around Cap Blanc Nez.
When not gadding about nearby attractions, there are games of tennis, pétanque and table tennis to play on site, and other activities such as paintballing to join in with. Live music, bingo and dancing keep things lively on high-season evenings, and there’s a friendly restaurant that serves up plates of traditional grub every night (except low-season Sundays).
Self-catering sorts can amble into the village of Tournehem-sur-la-Hem in around 10 minutes or so for supplies from the supermarket, bakery and top-notch local farmers’ market.
Open from 08/01/2018 to 15/12/2018

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.

Fill your lungs with fresh air by taking a bike ride on the cycle path that passes just by the site, or head to the Tournehem forest, a couple of kilometres away, to stretch your legs on a woodland walk. There’s well over 150 kilometres of navigable waterway in the Audomarois Marais wetlands, 20 minutes drive away – hire canoes to paddle or take it easy on a scenic boat ride.
For a spot of history and culture, take the 20-minute drive to Saint-Omer to visit the cathedral, Hotel Sandelin Museum and the ruins of Saint-Bertin Abbey. The gorgeous public gardens are worth a wander too, and it’s highly recommended to venture slightly out of town to La Coupole, a military museum with a huge underground complex to explore and a 3D planetarium.
A little south of Saint-Omer and around half an hour’s drive from Camping Bal is Dennlys Parc, an amusement park with plenty of rides that are especially popular with pre-teens.
