Taking off to France first week of July for first time. Going through the tunnel and dont want to travel more than 50-100m on the other side before setting up for first night. Probably more coastline. Anybody recommend any sites ?

Campsite La Chaumière at N 50°48'6"  E 2°20'21" is good

and

Pommiers des Trois Pays which is between Calais and St Omer

both can be found on the acsi eurocamping web site

http://www.eurocampings.co.uk/en/europe/france/nord-pas-de-calais/

anyone heading to france though really could do worse than getting a copy of the acsi camping guide available in english in waterstones etc and if you want to travel france with out paying to camp and can live self contained - which actually for a few days is possible in a VW if you swim at municipal baths and use their shower facilities probably the best buy is a copy of "all the aires" you can get it in english from vicarious press http://www.all-the-aires.com/index.htm or better still head into the first carrefour or auchan you see in france and buy the french version http://atlas-routier.com/product_info.php?cPath=24&products_id=54&osCsid=4ulmc6rkc2bj8kdrq88ikvlmt1 even with very basic french it is easy to use

Also essentail in France is a copy of the Michelin foldable atlas again the french edition (not the spiral bound but the fold back) it contains good maps a good best route map and for the autoroutes a really useful guide for where each service station is and what is on each service station, lots of town plans as well

BelgiumBay, Thankyou for the post, very very helpful indeed.

All, Just for info, many of the site reviews are often not in English, usually Dutch, if so, just copy and paste into Babel fish translator at http://babelfish.yahoo.com/...Not perfect but you get the drift!

I kev

If the there is a nederlands review you can almost bet that the review is good - sort of a racial stereo type but it is true - the dutch or even worse the Flemish (belgium north of brussels) - only ever see a point in giving a good review not a bad one - it is because they like waring brown - but as I an leaving Vlaanderen I can al least say that

May I suggest a website - ukcampsite.co.uk - which we found useful for our recent trip to Brittany. I assume you know all about the pet passport scheme. We also downloaded the Alan Rogers campsites for France, and took the book just in case. Most were fine with dogs under control and on a leash. August will be busy with French holidaymakers, so best to book ahead early. We had a great time in April out of season when the campsites were empty, and only booked as a precaution the day before. Hoping to return in September. There are many campsites with pools catering for families, and many quieter rural sites with fewer amenities. Good luck!

Ian - if you are going down as far as Reims / champagne country (c. 200 k from from Calais) - I can recommend a quiet, well equipped site at Guignicourt - literally 5 minutes off the A26 - Camping au bord de l'Aisne. It has a brand new heated pool and has a gate (for campsite users only) at the far end of the site that takes you out on to the river bank and a large grassy area, ideal for pooches. Guignicourt is not particularly exciting but there are some lovely towns in the vicinity - Laon and Soisson. There are also some interesting historical sites, war graves, Chemin des Dames, etc. If you would like some pics let me know.

Just south of Calais (10 miles) we stayed our first night at Camping La Bien Assise in Guines - booked it via the Caravan Club but I'm going back for a girly trip at the end of the month and I just rang them to book a pitch.  Again - excellent facilities (even heating in the shower block) and very friendly.  They loved the van Very Happy.  The guys next to us had a dog - so that worked too.  Didn't use the pool but it looks nice.  I was looking for something close to a beach - but the sites all looked quite basic.  Have fun…...
