Why stay here ...

This popular campsite is spacious and well-kept, with level grass pitches laid out in regular rows and linked by footpaths. It’s family friendly, with landscaped areas ideal for outdoor games, a supervised pool complex with a water slide and a small farm.

Gates to the rear of the site lead to a reservoir where water sports such as windsurfing and canoeing can be enjoyed. Amenities are plentiful, with a supermarket and bakery available onsite as well as a good restaurant.

Ypres and the First World War battlefields are close by and shouldn’t be missed, while the pretty medieval city of Bruges is a 45-minute drive from the site. Be sure to take in the ornately carved ceiling inside the 14th century Stadhuis (City Hall) and climb the 83m tower of the 13th century belfry in Markt Square for panoramic views.

EXcellent for both a stopover or a longer stay

We stayed here four nights at the end of September and the site, although very large was quiet and relaxing. A local Belgian told us it gets very busy in high season and some of the facilities struggle to cope a bit. Not sure I would agree with the comment that the site is easy to find as we didn't think either the directions from the club website, or our sat nav were very helpful.If you are lucky to be pitched near the newest toilet block you will find it very clean, spacious and endless hot water for showers and washing up. Plenty to see and do in the area and the town of Nieuwpoort, which is easy access for a bile or walking is lovely and well worth seeing. We also went to one of the many local sandy beaches and the WW2 Atlantic Wall site - superb! As the site is so close to Dunkirk it is a great addition to the club site network and we hope to use it again.

Great overnighter

This is a really large site situated 5 mins off the E40 motorway about 40 mins from Calais. It’s an ideal one night stopover going to or from Calais. The guy at reception spoke good English and gave us a very good site map which was easy to follow to our dedicated pitch. The facilities where spotlessly clean and the park itself was well kept. There is a restaurant and bar on site which is always handy, However we couldn’t find the recycling center because the site map was in Dutch. We eventually found it, located at the othe side of this large site about a thirty minute walk just to get rid of the rubbish. However if all you want is one night this is fine. I’ll use it again.

a huge site!

This site is massive, had to use the site plan (which is not in English, nor was any of the information) to navigate around and still couldn't find the bins! Just returned and pitches which were of a nice size and edged by hedges had turned to mud, Toilet blocks nice and clean but take your own handwash. Water points are sparse. Didn't see any other GB vans mostly Belgium and a few Dutch campers. Reception not the most welcoming but spoke English. Rivers and lakes at back of site were nice to walk the dog along and also walk or cycle into Nieuwpoort. Disappointed pool didn't open until 1030. Would probably not return as too big a site for us.

Our first time abroad with the caravan.

Arrived 24th July 2018 for 9 nights. Our first overseas holiday with the C&MC. Kompas Camping is a large commercial site with lots of tents, touring caravans, static vans and seasonal pitches. We were only 1 of 3 British families out of probably 1000. After an initial difficulty finding it with not many signs and Belgian postcodes not being up to much we arrived easily from the nearby channel tunnel. The staff were friendly and spoke good English but there is no English version of the site map available. We had booked a comfort xl pitch which was huge, plus it had water and waste on the pitch which we didn't expect as well as ehu. The grass pitch we were on was surrounded by hedging, all grounds were tidy and well kept. We were a good 10 minutes walk to the facilities which includes a pool complex, supermarket, bar and restaurant. The kids loved the pool, we used the shop everyday for fresh bread and croissants which were amazing. We didn't use the bar or eat there.There are several shower/toilet/wash up blocks that were clean and tidy, loads of hot water and decent showers. There is only chemical toilet emptying at these blocks so a small trolly to carry your toilet tank would be handy if it doesn't have wheels in case you are far away. There is full recycling on site to include glass, cardboard/paper, plastics and tetra packs however there is only 2 main areas for this that we saw so we ended up dropping our recycling daily in the car on the way out as it was a reasonable walk from out van. Town is about 2km away and there is an Aldi and Lidl within 5km. There is a number of vets in the town if you are travelling with pets. The site doesn't seem to have any dog poo bins and there weren't many dogs on site.The area is well suited to cycling (we didn't take ours) and easy access to cycle routes all over. Brugge is about half hour away as is famous sites like Tynecot cemetery and Menin Gate. All in all we had a lovely 9 nights away and would stay on this site again.

Excellent location

We stayed 7 nights as a couple at this site and were very impressed. 2nd week in july. Site very well laid out. Totally flat. We stayed on a large 140m pitch which is what we recommnd as very large and spacious. Its a very large site but well kept and clean. We didnt use the pool facilities nor the clubhouse. The reception and clubhouse is being redeveloped later for the 2019 season. Shower/toilet facilities were excelent, up to club standards. The site was so easy to get to, perfect for first timers visiting europe. Couldnt get lost! Only takes 1hr driving. The site is in a lovely location, 3km from beach and its a lovely cycle to the seafront. Beaches stretch for miles which are beautiful sandy beaches. This area of belgium is totally flat, perfect for cycling, its a must to take a bike as there are cycle lanes everywhere. We bike to de panne, and ostend. We didnt use the tram as we biked everywhere but good for non-cyclists. Excellent for visits to Brugge and Yypres ww1 sites as both within 1 hr drive. Food can be expensive so do take some food provisions with you, but its a must to visit the fish mongers, patisserie in the town, and also the butchers not far from the site entrance. Lastly enjoy the belgium beer!
