La Croix du Vieux Pont is a very large campsite situated to the north of Paris. It is a very large campsite with in excess of 500 pitches of which 120 are touring pitches the rest being taken up with mainly static caravans belonging to various tour operators. It is more of a holiday centre than a conventional campsite with lots of facilities for children of all ages including boating and fishing lakes. The hedged touring pitches are really large with individual water and waste points. Electric points have six amp supply. The unisex toilet blocks are dotted around the site and are to a very good standard with seated toilets and paper is provided but on a large roll outside the cubicles. The large shower cubicles also contain a wash hand basin. Unfortunately the provision of chemical toilet emptying points is limited which means they are a long way from quite a few of the touring pitches. There is an on site shop and bakery, a good restaurant and a bar where WiFi is available. The campsite has an excellent swimming pool complex, part of which is under cover. During our stay in early September 2009 the site clientele was predominantly British.
Although some 60 miles north of Euro Disney this does seem to be a popular destination from the campsite. The site also run excursions by coach into Paris. Nearer to the site the Chateau de Pierrefonds which is worth a visit and has recently been used to film the BBC series Merlin. For food shopping there is an Intermarche in Vic-sur-Aisne and larger supermarkets at Soissons.
