    Good ACSI site at Licques, Nord -Pas-de-Calais called Pommiers des Trois Pays. Coordinates are:
    N50 46'47" E1 56'52". We always stay here before the tunnel. About 30 mins from tunnel entrance.
    Good luck.

    I'll second Licques - very convenient and a straightforward drive into Calais.

    If coming from Rouen, 4 miles North of Boulogne is Camping L'Escale in Wacquingham. It is 500m of junction 33 off the A16 ands is about 15 miles from the tunnel. It in the ACSI book.
    GPS coordinates

    Latitude: 50.7830325
    Longitude: 1.6693464

    More than an hour but popular with Funsters is Neufchatel en Bray. Nice Aire with electric.
    We use it after late tunnel crossings

    Another vote for Neufchatel en Bray good private Aire with electric and Wifi. 12 euros a night with 10 amp electric. Easy to get to and just off the motorway.
    108 miles from Calais.

    Neufchatel has good campsite with facilities next door to aire, and has excellent vet 400m in town if required.

    I found the first recommendation after a long day of travelling. Thanks very much for the suggestions, it was all going so well till the fridge decided it didn't like gas any more!

    And yes, I do still have gas in the tank! lol.
