We stayed in the one near the marina and coach park, a 10-15min walk through the park into the centre.
Bit hit and miss as to space, they have larger spaces signed up for bigger vans but obviously dummies with small vans park in them🙁🙁

There's a nice aire adjacent to a lake at Zillebeke about 1.25 miles south of the Menin Gate. Pleasant walk into the town.
Hell of a long walk to Bruges.:giggle:

I spent a week there recently. Only two options really as mentioned above.
Camping Memling which is bookable but was full when I was there, and the Aire next to the marina.
Aire is much closer to walk but was very busy, always seemed to be spaces early but full by lunchtime/early afternoon. No toilets but water, black and grey dump and 16 amp electric for each parking space.
Camping Memling quite a long walk but on a bus route. Can't comment on services.

Memling is a fair step, but not a problem for the reasonably fit. On the positive side it’s a level walk, paved and well lit if walking back after dark. Cycle lane on pedestrian route if I remember correctly. Supermarket nearby site. Recommend.

If you want a campsite then Memling is very good about 15/20 minutes walk to the centre but there is a bus. The Aire at the marina is closer next to the train station and about 5 minutes walk into town.
Memling for me also, every time. Fantastic facilities and not much more than the aire/stelplatz. You can book online.
I'm pretty sure you can't get much nearer to the centre.
Hmm, not sure why the link has called itself Stack Path!

Another vote for the Bargeweg Aire, yes its always very busy but that's because it is such a short walk to the fabulous centre . If you can't get in the Aire itself you can park at the back of the coach park outside.

Or when people turn up, only larger spaces are left !

Not long enough!
If the aire is full, they used to put overflow on the main carpark.
Expensive but a lovely stroll through the park.
Enjoy!

Another vote for Camping Memling. Wonderful shower block, short walk to the bus stop. Pre covid the buses were free on Saturday & Sunday during December.

Memling , if theres any space .
We are booked in from Nov 28 for a week.
Couple of good places very close to eat as well, Hermanus and vossesteert.
We take the push bikes, easy ride to centre.
Bus stop near the entrance to the site and Aldi, Lidl, Mediamarkt within 5 minutes walk.

For folks who do get to Brugge, I can highly recommend De Garre pub and Ribs & Beer restaurant. Also, De Halve Maan brewery and tour. Brugs Beertje is well known of course.

They have extended the aire and now have better bigger spaces as Coastal Cruiser says but not sure that you can now use the coach park as overflow, have you been and done this recently?

Several vans at the end of the coach park in September, I overheard that they had to take the ticket to the parking office near the exit to have it changed from a coach to a van ticket. Far more space between the vans in the coach area but the downside was no hookup.

Thanks for that confirmation, I saw that if you went straight on into coach park you took 50 euro ticket.

There is the aire by the coach park, very convenient for the town.
I think it was about 25 euro when I was there in 2019
They have an off season price (As does Memling)Oct -March if its still €25 in season it will be €19 now. Watch campsites over xmas they hike the prices up to high season price,I came off camping Zeeburg in Amsterdam one xmas as they wanted double over xmas (said it was busy season)and there was only me and one other van on it.
