Camping du Tremblay Paris Reviews
Very basic campsite May 25, 2006
We stayed here as part of the Contiki London to Athens tour. It was our first experience at a campsite, and it was fine. Definitely nothing to write home about, but it was a place to put our heads at night.
Each cabin had two bedrooms and a bathroom in the middle. The bedrooms had perpendicular bunk beds built into the wall (see photos), and while not terribly thick, the beds were comfortable enough. The bathroom had a toilet, sink and hand-held shower that sprayed water all over the entire bathroom when you used it--no shower curtain.
The campsite also has a bar/outdoor patio where you can bring your own water, but if you get too noisy, they make you go to the inside bar, where you have to buy all drinks (even water) from them.
The biggest problem is that it's quite a distance from the main part of Paris, and the bus that supposedly brings you back to the campsite stops running after a certain hour, which no one bothered to tell a few of our tour mates.
Because so many contiki tours stay there, it does have a tendency to get a bit noisy at night when everyone gets home from their late night in Paris, but overall, it's a decent place for backpackers on a very tight budget.
