Just returned from a 12 day trip down through France where we stayed at this place for 3 nights. All looked ok when we arrived, but things went bad from there on. The concrete plot we were given was too small to fit our van and awning into, impossible to peg, and was next to the main shortcut up to the shops, pool and bar. No sleep the first night thanks to singing and shouting at the bar onsite till 03:00 when they closed. Things then got worse when we found 25(ish) teenages staying in the chalets nearby. 3 days of shouting, drinking and generally being a pain in the @rse all through the night meant no sleep again for me, my wife and 9 year old daughter. By the last night our holidays were almost ruined. After complaining several times at reception, nothing happened after being told by staff that they had already received several complaints, and that they were sorting it. These kids were unaccompained and free to do what all teeangers do, whatever they want.
Add to this no toilet roll, no toilet seats, unisex dirty toilets/showers, average facilities (including an overpriced shop) and a general feeling that you're being ripped off baffles me the 4 star rating this place boasts about. We then moved onto biarritz and stayed at biarritz camping which had one less star rating and made a general mockery of camping club arcachon.
Go to Arcachon, its beautiful, but avoid this place like the plague. Never again!
