Camping Jeugdstadion is a small municipal site that has had a substantial facelift in recent years. It is well maintained, clean and neat, and has 40 touring pitches, 18 of which are hardstands, all with 10A electricity, plus a separate grassy area for 70 tents. The site entrance barrier links to the automated booking system, so even when there are no staff on site, it is still possible to gain access at the 24-hour reception. This also allows all-year use by motorhomes.
This is a very popular site due to its proximity to many war memorials and the centre of Ieper. At the end of Leopold III Laan (10 minutes walk) is the Menin Gate. Built in 1927, it bears the names of British and Commonwealth soldiers who lost their lives between 1914-1918. The last post is sounded beneath the gate at 20.00 every evening in their honour. The interactive museum entitled The Flanders Experience, in the Cloth Hall, is a moving experience. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is a little further away in Elverdingestraat. In mid August each year, there is a festival for young people in the town, when the campsite is usually fully booked.
