    at least 10 ACSI sites on my App in the area.. and loads of sites all along the coast. Out of season i'm not sure to be honest..But in July/August probably the worse town we have ever visited as crowds unbearable!

    Lovely place, but as above, this was low season. Loads of sites close to town.

    We have visited Argeles for the past 5-6 years, we stay at an adjacent village Latour Bas Elne on an aires located at the rear of a motorhome dealers.

    Its in effect a secure field with electric hook up (no loos/pool etc) and is 10 Euros a night (if you leave by 10am) or 12 Euros if you park during the day. There is plenty of day parking in Argeles, or if you dont mind a walk along the prom, there is a specific motorhome day parking area about 1km West of the harbour.

    As previous posters have said there are plenty of sites though which should have room in June.

    Personally we've never had much bother with crowds in the height of summer and have always managed a table at one of the harbourside bistros.

    We've never had any bother with mozzies either, nothing like the Carmargue (where we were well and truly munched!!)

    We'll be back to Argeles/St Cyprien in Sept this year mid way through our first post retirement long termer :)

    Camping Les Marsouins, nice site, handy for beaches and promenade, pitches are individually hedged with flowering shrubs.

    We were down there two years ago, on the same site Les Pins, as we had taken the kids camping when they were 4 and 5, oh dear that's 30 years ago! Site has direct access to lovely sandy beach and there is an " au natural" section a bit further down.
    A long narrow town with many campsites and can get noisy in high season

    But in all honesty we now preferred the basic 2* Acsi site in Collioure Camping Les Amandriers. You could walk to the to the jem of a beautiful little town over the sea Cliffs and it was stunning, own private secluded beach and very close to the Spanish border. But as I say campsite a bit basic and no good for large vans.

    You can always split the campsites as we did and then get the best of both worlds

    We enjoyed are stay very much, wherever you go it will be good, we did not get too many Mosquitos, we went in September this year and July with the kids and did not have any trouble.

    Would recommend La Chapelle Acsi campsite. We stopped there in early June 2 years ago. Its 200 m from sea and very close to the shops, bars & resturants. Argeles has a lovely promenade for walking or cycling with majestic houses that seem unoccupied! Some other camp sites are out of town but most are linked by regular road train service.
