    Can anyone recommend a campsite near Calais, we are travelling by Euro Tunnel and arrive in Calais about 4.30pm, and don't want to travel to far on the first couple of nights. It will be our first venture abroad so are real novices, Many thanks in advance:thumb:

    This july we stayed at Camp site Les Erables at Escalles it's eighteen minutes from Calais port and 10 mins from city europe just right for an over night.

    Hope this helps

    Give this one a try (Chateau Gandspette) I don't think you'll be disappointed - used by lots of Brits coming off or returning to ferry:

    Why bother with camp sites at £20+ per night. Get your hands on "All the Aires in France". I had 3 weeks 2 in France and 1 in Spain. And Spain was the only place I paid site feesbn£150. You will be amazed at where the French overnight, all for free. I have just got back from my first Euro Tour. Loved every mile. My last night Thursday14/08/ 08 was at the side of a canal overlooking all the barges etc, and no one batted and eyelid. France is a very Motorhome friendly nation, Laybyes, services, Ive even seen them park up against a a garden wall.
    The only hastle I had was the british customs, didnt want to believe that I had been touring on my own in a Motorhome. Bloody stripped my van down, and as I said to them, all for three bottles of Rum.:Rofl1:

    So go and enjoy.:thumb:
