General

  • 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.

    Nice quiet site, friendly staff. This site is better suited as an overnight stay. Better for families with younger children, nothing for teenagers.

    Disliked: 

    Had a meal for granddaughter birthdays, wrong meal delivered. No proper apology given. No effort made to rectify mistake. This put a bit of a damper on the evening.

    Pitches were decent flat and hard standing. Site is a hotel with very reasonable restaurant and facilities are acceptable too making it ideal for a stopover which was reason for our visit.

    Disliked: 

    There is a narrow archway in the village you need to pass through. Quite ok for our BMW X6 pulling a 7 foot wide Bailey Unicorn Valencia, but you would not get through it with anything 8 foot wide.

Directions


Local attractions

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.
