Practical information for our guests:
Emergency servicesThe telephone numbers of the emergency services are noticeable at our reception. Of course, we will assist you in emergency situations. Do not hesitate to speak to us when you are having a problem, we are there for you!
Gate and lightingThe large gate closes at 10 pm and is opened at 8 am. Therefore, there is no traffic on the campsite between 10 pm and 8 am. The small gate remains open during the night so that you can still enter or leave on foot after 10 pm. In that case, your car can be parked on the parking lot opposite the reception.
The terrain remains illuminated during the night, just like a night light in the largest toilet. The lighting of the other parts of the sanitary building is turned off at 11.30 pm.
WiFiWe offer free WiFi. There is very good wifi reception throughout the campsite.
The law obliges us to be able to demonstrate who uses our WiFi, in case infringements of the legislation would be established. Therefore, you will receive a voucher from us, with which you can log in to our WiFi network. Of course your data will be treated confidentially and only communicated to the competent authorities when asked to do so.
Sanitary facilitiesThe sanitary facilities include 3 showers, 4 washbasins and 3 toilets. There is both a shower with washbasin and a toilet accessible for wheelchairs.
There are 3 washbasins provided for the dishes.
In all showers water is provided at 38°, this is a safety measure so that you can never get burning injuries.
On the outside of the sanitary building you will find a fountain with cold water. A little further you'll find a water point with hose to fill e.g. a watering can. Both water points offer drinkable fresh water.
The chemical toilet/cassette can be emptied in the red-brown toilet at the front. The tap is to flush your cassette, the lever is to flush the toilet.
The sanitary is cleaned daily, we hope that you will help us and your fellow campers to leave everything neatly, so that it remains pleasant for everyone.
Animation roomNext to the terrace you can go to the animation room via the ramp. This space is freely accessible from 8 am to 10 pm. There are books, comic strips and games available. Of course, everything must be used with care.
Bar and terraceYou can always enjoy a refreshing drink in our bar. Of course, Belgian beers are on the menu !
The bar is open at certain times (according to the information board at the bar), outside these hours you can always take a drink or an ice cream to your pitch. If you cannot find us immediately, you can ring at the reception.
Contrary to what you maybe read on the internet, we do not have a fixed pizza day. When we offer meals ourselves (e.g. pizzas) or when a food truck is coming, this will be announced on an information board at least 1 day in advance.
Walks and bike ridesSome ideas in the area:
- At the gate to the right, cross the blue bridge, then to the right and a little further on the left you will see, next to the war memorial, the beginning of a very nice walk between the fields with a view on the mountains. If you follow the yellow/blue marking, the walk is about 9km.
Attention: we have developed our own route that does not fully follow the yellow/blue signs: click here for the route plan.
- At the gate to the left, just after the adjacent campsite, turn left and you will also enter a field road with hardly any cars. Click here for the route plan.
- The 'Voie Verte', via which you also reach SuperU on foot or by bike. An old railway that has been transformed into a beautiful walk through nature. At the gate to the right, cross the bridge, then to the right and +/- 1 km further down you will see a pale yellow house. There you take the road to the right to go towards SuperU in Devecey (+/- 7 km). If you turn left at the light-yellow house, the road will take you to Moncey where there is a small grocery store with basic products (+/- 4 km).
