On our trip through Belgium and Luxembourg this was the only place we stayed two nights and it was a nice experience. The service is brilliant, you're given everything from bus time tables, maps, tips and a smile without even asking for it. There is a small shop convenient even if a little on the more expensive side, a bar and a chip shop on site, the wash machine and dryer is around 4 euros and is working well. One BIG advantage is that you don't have to decide straight away how long you want to stay, you pay when you leave. If you leave after 12 you'll pay for the next night, but that seems pretty fair!
The tent sites are all separated by hedges allowing a lot of privacy and there are several shower and toilet blocks, which are reasonably clean. The bus into Ghent leaves every 20 minutes or so and stops right in the centre. Blaarmeersen is also the last stop on the way back so it's an easy journey (buy your tickets in advance it's cheaper than on the bus, but best get an all-day ticket). I'd definitely stay there again if I wanted to go to Bruges, especially if the weather is nice since Blaarmeersen is a recreational area with a lake!!!
