Camping de Troyes is perfectly situated if you’re looking for a stop-off point en route to the south of France or a base from which to explore the Champagne region. The centre of Troyes, with its medieval wooden-framed buildings that almost topple into each other, is only a short drive away. It is well worth spending a day meandering through the tiny streets and imagining what life would have been like as a musketeer in the Middle Ages.
When you first arrive at Camping de Troyes you could be forgiven for thinking that you were walking into a motorhome nightmare. But keep the faith and head to the back of the site, where you’ll find a tent haven surrounded by shrubs and trees. Suddenly you’ll realise why it’s worth a few nights’ breather. Although you can easily feel you have your own private space, the plot itself isn’t exactly sprawling, so being at the end of the site doesn’t mean a long walk if you get caught short in the middle of the night. The site is modern, but not overly manicured, and the pitches aren’t regimented. The overall feel is ‘organised’ and you’ll leave refreshed, ready to go on your way.

We had three nights here on our way back from Chamonix, and really enjoyed it. The site's very good, easy to get the tent pegs in, flat, and plenty of space and enough privacy. We tried out the Wop Wop pizzeria, and that was excellent. Troyes itself is a beautiful town and we went birdwatching around the Lac du Foret d'Orient, although it was the wrong time of year - agree with other reviews that it might not have enough to offer for a longer stay, but a great site nonetheless.
My girlfriend and I stayed here in the last summer. We used it as our first stopping point after getting off the ferry from Calais. The pitch size was excellent and private. Staff were very friendly and amiable. Ask to for one of the pitches at the back if you want to avoid the children! It's only a short drive to the centre of Troyes, which was a real highlight for us. Cheap champagne and medieval houses! Not sure i'd spend a whole holiday there, as i'm not sure how much there is to do. But it's definitely a good stopping point if you are heading south.
