/ camping near Calais
Am searching on the web and it seems that all French people go into
hibernation at 8 pm.Going on 29th Aug.
If not,any beach sites you may know?
Please email me.
is the Sangatte campground still open?
Why on earth would you want to camp near Calais? The place is a hole.
Go down the coast towards boulogne sur mer, there are a few beautiful spots along there
Partner booked ferry already.Will arrive at 8pm,just as it seems campsites put up the anti lion fence and garlic over the lintel.....
That was what I thought... until I camped near Calais. Turns out that a mere 5 miles away you are into beautiful French countryside, long empty beaches and classic French lifestyle.
Alas the site we camped at closes at 8pm, unlike the local excellent eatery.
Why frigg around with camping? As has been said Calais is a dump anyway. Stay in a Formula 1 they are quick and easy to use. No need to bother with erecting and dismantling a (possibly wet) tent, and dirt cheap, particular with two of you. You pay for the room, not per person
Or is this for the return trip ?
In my experience, they are best avoided. We stayed at this place last year: http://www.les-oyats.com/
Looks lovely doesn't it? In reality it was full of French benefit tourists. (Fights in the night, enthusiastic shagging in the shower stalls, kids scrounging for money)
My kids call Formula 1 motels "Sperm Banks", Campanile motels can be pretty ropey as well.
If I was you, I'd find/ pre-arrange a nice rural one star hotel, 5 mins off the AutoRoute.

I won't stay in one again, stank like an ashtray and the neighbours sat up all night long making as much noise as possible.
