"Netjes, met een knullige douche..."
Zonder veel benul wat dukte betreft, met de Camper naar dit terrein. Het is niet zo goed aangegeven.De dame van de receptie had zenuwslopende muziek, vrij hard aan staan. (nooit hoor je Schubert) Ze deelde mede dat er een plaats vrij was, take it or leave it. Wij namen hem, maar het voelde alsof we iets fout gedaan hadden door niet te reserveren. De Camping ligt gunstig, op loopafstand van de stad. De auto's staan vrij dicht opeen. Er is uitstekende gelegenheid om af te wassen, er is stroom, de toiletten zijn netjes. De douche geeft een zeeeer dun straaltje water, je haar wassen wordt een moeizaam karweitje. Er was een groep luidruchtige flaminganten, honden mogen blijkbaar loslopen. 15 euro, kostte het geheel met 2 personen. (we betalen graag twee euro meer met ruim warm water) Een voldoende, meer kan ik er niet van maken.
Went here on my solo bicycle tour of Belgium and the battle fields of WWI and WWII, and was overly impressed with this campsite. Plenty of grassy soft spots, close to town, toilets are clean and close by to camping pitch and there's an automatic check in if you arrive late. Really handy.
"Ideal base for Menin Gate and WW1 Memorial Sites"
Stayed 2 nights early July – it was full and had we not pre-booked we would not have been able to stay there. Extremely good value for money, it cost €23 for 2 nights + returnable €4 deposit. The Auto Check in is good idea, but we had problems as admin had entered a space in our postcode and the system would not recognise it – we had to call for assistance, which was delayed as we arrived during the 2 hours in the afternoon when reception was not manned. However, the staff was extremely helpful and sorted the problem easily and with good grace. We have a converted Mercedes Vito and booked a hard-standing campervan spot. Motor-home pitches are paved and are quite close together – there was no room to put our awning up as we had a middle space – had we been either end there was sufficient grass to erect the awning. The site has 3 types of Pitches, bricked areas for Motor homes, a camping field at the top of the site and also 'Touristic' pitches, which are predominately for caravans. There is no vehicular access to the tent field (probably not great for camping?). However, there are also 3 Hikers huts available, which would be ideal for those exploring the area on foot or by bike. Over all, I would recommend this site as an Ideal base for the Ypres and WW1 sites; a very good municipal campsite close to the centre of Ieper - 10 mins walk to the Menin Gate and a few minutes more to the Cloth Hall. You would not come to this site for stunning views from your tent; it is an urban camp site, on the edge of an Industrial estate, with the Factory nearby and car dealership. However it is a grassy site with trees around the exterior – it was very quiet during out stay and we loved it. It’s main selling point is its location for visiting WW1 places of interest. Facilities: Showers and toilets plus washing up facilities were clean and functional. There is also a small toilet block, accessible with security card, near camping car pitches – these were very clean at all times. There is no Shop/Cafe/Restaurant on site, but there is an Aldi 5 mins away. Wi-fi ok and free Security is good, with 2 barriers, one to get on to the site, the other between the motor homes and the ‘Touristic ‘pitches, however there is a public footpath that runs through the site, and as such pedestrian access is not restricted. Activities/Places of Interest: Site is 10 mins walk from Menin Gate and the 2000 Last Post Memorial each evening is very moving. Tyne Cot cemetery, Hooge Crater and many other WWI memorials are very nearby. Cycling is awesome! Roads flat(ish) and cycle paths everywhere – follow the numbered route in white/green – the sign goes green when you have arrived there (you can get a cycle map from the Cloth Hall Tourist Information). Cars stop for cyclists so negotiating traffic is not an issue –the whole system is really impressive; def the best way to get about. We visited all WW1 sites by bike (which we took with us) although I believe you can hire them at the site. Downside: I have read other reviews which say there is noise from the mildly continuous factory hum from a nearby plant – we didn’t notice this at all?
Great place to camp , caravan or motorhome . Walking distance from all the must see places in Ieper (Ypres) , Menin Gate , Flanders Museum . Also great location to drive to other places of interest for Battlefields trips.
"Our summer choice in Ypres"
We have stayed here a couple of times now, once just the 2 of us on the bike and once with the kids in the car - both times were fab and we're just waiting gor the site to reopen for the Spring so we can go back! We stayed on the camping field both times - had to park the car outside in the adjacent parking, but could ride the bike right in. Good clean facilities and outstanding price are a boon, but the location is the best bit - a short walk into Ypres and all that it has to offer - via the children's play park or the nature reserve, complete with cows! Or alternatively it's a quick ride out to the whole of the Ypres Salient or Bellewarde theme park for the children. With a supermarket and fantastic sports centre a 10 minute walk away - its the perfect campsite!
