- Lovely , well-run camp at Sudsee, however - and it is a fairly significant however- if you have no knowledge of the German language - you will STRUGGLE. All of the info at main camp reception re trips , activities and even the weather forecast were all in only German. As a person who studied German at school & first year at uni , albeit 25 years ago , I have knowledge of tourist level German ( & had a phrase book & dictionary with me) - I found both the staff and the local towns were just not geared up for non-fluent speakers..although I did try! The tourist office on the square in the beautiful old town of Celle had ALL its literature in German & I could not find any in English or French etc.. The site is lovely but local shopping is limited in nearby villages & towns ...The site shop is fairly poor with limited opening hours for such a large site ( 3 hour lunch break - longer than we have experienced in many French sites! Also the swimming on site is not value for money - the "discount" for eurocamp customers is small - it cost 12 euros for my husband and son (13 years) for a 3 hour ( minimum available session) & the main feature of the pool, the flume/lazy river was out of order due to a previous accident.... The accommodation we stayed in was a Vista mobile home - 3 bedrooms..it was very clean ( unlike the one in Duinrell we arrived at on 10th July for the last 3 days of our holiday!) We had a very thin lumpy worn mattress at Sudsee , but on requesting a new one the Eurocamp guys were extremely helpful and provided a change of mattress. We found the guys (Ricky & Andy) very helpful and obliging with any questions we had during our stay and still would recommend the site ( just make sure someone in your party has a basic knowledge of German , as like us until the last couple of days of our stay, we were the only British car we spotted in the camp..which is normally what we love in parts of France , but then my French is better than my German ! Still a beautiful site , well - kept , definitely best suited to active , fitter people as the main pool / shop / reception is a good 7-8 minutes walk . Great location if you like to cycle for miles..very rural but cycle tracks run for miles.
