Camping Blaarmeersen
Ranked #20 of 37 Speciality Lodging in Ghent
Reviewed 7 August 2011

Used this family site for 1 night - never again. Our spot was below average in size but level & short walk to toilets etc. Toilets were ok but not as clean as Germany/Holland. Laid out in avenues of 6-12 pitches some with fence/hedges between each pitch. In addition they have a couple of large open fields for tents. Our pitch was adjacent to these; big mistake. Just before sunset, 6 cars full of Belgians arrived an set up 10 tents right next to us, set up the bar and drank and laughed through to 1am before settling down with encouragement from us and other unfortunate campers. There were other groups also who didn't make as much noise. Just be very careful on where your pitch is allocated as they seem to accept groups of people quite readily [whose idea of camping is just to use it as an outdoor pub with sleeping facilities] . Not cheap either; 1 night for 2 without electric was just over 18 euros. Helpful multilingual staff .

Camping/caravan site was popular and busy while we were there. Welcoming staff and lots of information provided on arrival, including map of Ghent, travel info, visitor's guide and rubbish bag!

Easy to get into centre of Ghent via 48/49 buses (only took about 20mins and costs E1.20 in adavance from ticket machine). Easy to find by car from the R4 ring road as well and very well sign posted onto the Blaarmeersen sports area.

Toilet/shower block was clean and closeby to the camping field (they have a field where you can pitch your tent wherever you like for a slightly reduced rate than if you get an allocated caravan/tent pitch). Showers were a bit strange in that they didn't spray very far from the wall- bit hard to wash your hair under! Drinking water taps also marked throughout campsite. Small issue- if you choose the camping field then you park your car in nearby carpark, about 5 min walk next to campsite.

Site also had a shop selling all essentials, as well as fresh pastries, and a restaurant/bar area- food/drink was good but a bit overpriced. No kitchen to cook your own food.

Overall a good campsite catering for a range of ages and travellers from many different countries. We enjoyed ourselves here and its a good value campsite - we paid just E18 a night for two people with a tent and a car.

Room Tip: Choose camping field for cheaper rate if you just have a small tent

We only stopped here for one night on our way from Germany to France, but the camping ground seemed very family oriented and clean. They had a playground, as well as a sporting complex next door, with a tennis court and many other facilities. Ghent is also a very nice town.

This is an excellent place to stay. The first night I arrived the place was packed with people visiting the Gent festival, but the facilities were not overwhelmed. Things are kept clean. Access to Gent is easy enough on the bus or by cab.

The facilites on site are, for the money, superb. A big fake beach, lake and water slides along with a pool, small football pitch and mini golf. A beautiful place in the sun.

Highly recommended overall!

We camped at this campsite for one night. The toilets and showers were clean and there were plenty of showers in the different blocks although not very much water pressure.

We decided to eat at the restaurant at night and the food was poor - I ordered a pizza and it only had canned tomatoes and olives on it - covered with lots of cheese to hide the terrible toppings. We drank tap water which they had the rudeness to charge us Euro1.80 a glass for. My children had meatballs and even my youngest normally a vivid fan of meatballs didn't eat more than one of them.

The campsite is located in the middle of a huge recreation park with plenty to do and keep the family entertained. There is a playground and mini golf opposite the campsite as well as tennis courts and the lake.

Stayed here in July this year.
We arrived really early at the site and got booked in as soon as it opened. The staff on reception couldn't do enough for us, gave us a pitch and only booked us in from 2pm that day, saving us extra cost.
Shower blocks clean and tidy, pitches large and tidy too.
Never used the cafe on site a little bit expensive, shop was ok.
Plenty to do on the site as its right next door to a massive leisure complex.
Really good transport links into Ghent, bus stop right outside the site, with a regular service.
All in all a really good site and we will be returning.

We really enjoyed our stay at Camping Blaarmeersen. We found the staff very helpful with information about the area and buses into town. The festival was on in the town of Ghent so the campsite was very busy with lots of students. We were in the back field with the students as we had not pre-booked (something I would do another time). This meant we couldn't park the car next to our pitch, but there was lots of parking available on site. The shower block was cleaned at least twice a day and had very clean modern facilities with plenty of free hot water for showers and washing up. We paid about £17 per night which was quite good compared to some places we have stayed in Belgium. There was lots for kids to do (although we left ours at home with my parents!) like the playground, mini golf, swimming lake with waterslide, table tennis, volleyball court. We will go there again. Lots to do in Ghent but not as touristy as Bruges.
