Camping Bouscarel, 448 Rue du Lac, 62215 Oye-Plage, Tel 03 21 36 76 37
To Find Site:-
From Calais take A16 towards Dunkerque. (the junction numbers on the A16 have recently been renumbered) Take exit signed for Oye-Plage, this road is a little bit twisty but otherwise OK. At the traffic lights in Oye Plage do a dog leg across the junction and continue to the T junction and turn right, the site is well signed. The site is on the right in about a hundred metres.
Camping Bouscarel is a fairly small site with about 40 pitches which is very convenient either to and from Calais. To ensure a pitch it is best to arrive reasonably early otherwise you end up on the parking area as we did! We were later joined by another UK caravan. There does not seem to be much English spoken at Reception but signs everywhere around the campsite are in English as well as French. The toilet block was of a very good standard. There is a good children's play area. Near the entrance, and next to the parking there is a Salle de Jeux. Having spent the night in the parking area there was no problem with noise.
Had we been able to secure a regular pitch they do seem to be of a good size and individually hedged for privacy. They are set out along a single site road. Like many French sites a fair proportion of the site is taken up by permanent campers. If you are staying on the way back to the UK the large Auchen Supermarket at Dunkerque is not far away. If the pictures are not overly flattering it is because they were taken not long after dawn as we were heading South.
