Alan Rogers Review

Within easy reach of the historic town of Belfort, les Ballastières opened in 2008 in private ownership, but it is now run as a municipal site. The landscaping is becoming established and the 90 touring pitches are very large, level and easily accessible, all with 6/16A electricity. At the time of our visit, wooden lodges to rent were being installed on ten pitches. The reception building also houses a bar and snack bar, while outside a patio with tables and chairs overlooks the pool and adjacent lake. The site has been designed with disabled campers in mind; there is a sloping path down to the pool, a hoist has been installed, and one of the ten mobile homes is ramped for easy access.

The lake running alongside the site is well fenced, has gated entry and affords opportunities for sailing, canoeing, fishing and swimming. Belfort (20 km) has large Vauban fortifications and earned its reputation during the 1870 Franco-Prussian War. It has mixed Franco-German influences, including its cuisine.
