FAQ - Frequently asked questions

  • Is it necessary to make reservations for a camping pitch?
    If you want to be assured of a camping pitch, we advise you to make reservations before you arrive. This is especially recommended for the months of July and August and the period around Ascension and Pentecost. You can book a pitch only by way of our online reservation form.

    Reservation is of course not compulsory, but Camping Memling is provided with only 90 pitches and there are few other campsites in the surroundings.
  • How do I book a camping pitch?
    Go to our online reservation form and fill this out carefully adding your personal data, period of stay, and choice of pitch. After receiving your request we will contact you as soon as possible with a payment request.
  • How can I change or cancel my booking? Is there a fee due to my changes or cancellation?
    Changing your reservation is free to 1 day before your arrival. After receiving your email with your reservation number and your new data, and if pitches are still available, we will send you a new confirmation. Cancelling your booking is also possible. For more information see our cancellation policy.
