Stayed here for 4 nights in July, the only good two things I can say about the site was location (just outside Chateuneuf) and the owners were friendly. However, I am a pretty seasoned camper and happy with basic but clean facilities, something you never have to worry about in France usually, but as far as this goes this is the worst campsite I have been to. The site has approx 90 pitches and there were only 2 showers in the ladies, they were constantly filthy, the whole area was swimming in muddy, soapy water pretty much all day. No separate sink cubicles, water in the showers and sinks were one temperature, so you had to shower in lukewarm water and brush your teeth with warm water. Toilets awful, no paper or toilet seat (not unusual in French sites but getting rarer) but no soap either, doors which stuck or didn't close at all. The dish washing area was a joke, lots of sinks, all with cold water! one hot tap which meant everyone had to queue up to fill basins with painfully slow running warm water. There were also no bins so the sinks were full of food waste.
The site is in a wood and could look lovely but there has been nothing done with it, the pitches are bare and not well defined, no real privacy at all which is unusual in France.
All this for the princely sum of 26 euros a night, I've stayed in cleaner better functioning municipal sites for 3 euros. This is the only campsite in the chateunuef area, which is why we put up with it but my advise would be don't bother, enjoy chateuneuf and then head off camp somewhere else!
