Stayed here in the last w/e in August 2008 and it was quite empty - the high season may be different - so read this review with caution if you're planning to stay in July it may be very different.
The campsite is about 500m out of the town centre but up a quite steep hill - if you're of average fitness this isn't a problem but I think families with young children may struggle: unless they're super energetic you'll be carrying them up the hill once you get halfway.
There are 8 shower cubicles and a further 8 toilets (4F, 4M) by the tent pitches plus another block with more showers and toilets for the caravanners. The camping toilet facilities looked brand new and were very clean - municipal campsites can often be a bit grotty - this one wasn't at all (caveat - we were not here during the high, high season of July, beginning of August).
Camping staff friendly and can speak English but definitely prefer French - even if it's rubbish French (but I don't come to France to speak English). Very helpful with local information.
Little cafe on site that does food and you can order bread for the next morning there too.
Given proximity to Annecy and beach (100m down a steep slope to a lovely swimming area - with lifeguard in busy times) 14 euros a night for 2 people with car is an absolute bargain.
I've been to France more times than I can remember but not to Annecy or around: it's a hidden gem - stunningly beautiful with lots of things to do and see, especially if you're an outdoors type person. And the clarity of the water in the lake and canals has to be seen to be believed. Highly recommended for a visit.
