    I doubt it. It's an overnight coach park that get's pretty busy. The motorhome spaces are around the edges.

    There are no facilities there, it's literally just a car park so there's nothing apart from the vehicles staying there to steal or damage.

    No water, there is however a dump and bins, as Nick says it is also used as a depot for the local buses (that have an annoying habit of running their engines from 5:30 onward to presumably heat up). Can be very busy, get there early.

    I forgot about the dump.

    Is Wissant the one where it's drive over but between two hedges that are less than 2m apart?

    Drive over, plenty of room, remember to dump cassette first then flush it with your grey waste as the French do.. Quite pleasant some planted hedges separating sections of the aire. Just don't park near the buses unless you are a (very) early riser.

    It was open at the beginning of the year and agree don't park nr the buses unless you have a very early crossing also.
