We stayed here 5 years ago and returned this week, it was even better than last time.
Stayed in the cheapest mobile home, Bali, all neat and tidy and well kept - with much appreciated air conditioning! Only niggle is there was no oven, grill or toaster in our unit which limited what we could cook. No BBQ but you can hire them from the shop for a refundable €20 deposit.
The pool area is superb for kids of all ages, small indoor pool in case of rain and plenty of sun loungers to choose from.
The site is well looked after and family friendly, with Camping Kids activities at various times of the day/evening - even my 11 and 12 year olds joined in.
Gripes - the reception is only open from 9-12 and 3-7 in low season, we arrived at lunchtime on a 30+ degree day and were told that the kids couldn't use the pool until we had wristbands from reception. Never been to a site before that doesn't let you use the facilities straight away. The shop also has limited opening hours, basic choice and is predictably expensive, but the Intermarche in Faremoutiers or better still LeClef in Coulommiers are not too far away and have much more choice/better value.
We were told there was free WiFi near the bar/reception but it was painfully slow and you only get a code for one device, which is a shame.
The train station is right outside the park (but doesn't cause much noise) and you can buy a ticket from reception that takes you straight into Paris with Metro/bus travel included. Easy trip to Disney by car, close enough to pop back for dinner then return for the fireworks later.
Really is a super park, will book again for next year as soon as prices are available.
