I have had a number of questions about the site I stayed at in Ypres. It is open from March 1st and I found it ideal as it is only a ten to fifteen minute walk into Ypres. The web address is http://www.jeugdstadion.be

“Campsite ‘Jeugdstadion’ is a small and green campsite just a stone′s throw from the centre of Ypres. Since 1993 hikers from all around Europe have enjoyed our campsite as the perfect base from which to explore the Westhoek. If you would like to explore the region on a cycle we have cycles for rent.

The campsite has 22 touristic places where you can pitch your tent, and stand your caravan or camping car. There are 70 places for tents in the field and 3 hikers’ huts. You can also stand your camping car on the camping car site.

The campsite has two sanitary buildings with a total of 6 showers.
There is a chemical toilet and a waste water drain point for camping cars.

The camping is open from 1 March through 12 November. The camping car site is accessible throughout the year. Reception closed from 12 November to 1 March. For the camping car area you have to check in with the booking machine . During this period the toilet blocks are closed.”
