Excellent traditional-style facilities set next to a mountain river
With a range of excellent facilities for a site of this size, plus the traditional buildings hung with flowers, this is a great base for visiting the Black Forest and for making day trips to Switzerland. Staufen and its castle are very pretty, but picturesque Freiburg is nearby too – if you brave the spiral steps up into the tower of its beautiful minster, the effort is well rewarded.

We stayed in May/June. I have to say a little nervous after reading different reviews. People have commented on the owners being un friendly, I have to disagree. Our German is basic however we hardly spoke any English and we found all of the owners really helpful and friendly. People have commented on the pitches being small, again if you are going to take to kitchen sink then yes they are a little snug. The tram, well it's not every 5 mins and you do get used to it. The area is brilliant for cycling and walking. I think everybody else has describe the area well. There is a road opposite the entrance to the campsite where in the little village there is an nice pub that does gorgeous food. Again don't expect the owners to speak english or have the menu in English, however the owners are really friendly and really don't mind how your German sounds. We got on fine. The toilet blocks etc were very clean, again you're camping, we feel if you want 5 star stay in a hotel, the staff had generally given the a quick clean before everyone was up and about. I would reccommend this site if you are willing to give German a go, not expecting the Ritz, however looking for a clean and tidy site and enjoy cycling and walking. Oh nearly forgot an amazing theme park, Europa park about 1 hour away. 11 roller coaster rides!!!!

The campsite is within walking distance of the pretty little town of Staufen. It is sandwiched between a railway line and a stream. We ended up right by the level crossing with the 4 local trains an hour creating audible warning beeps until gone midnight. The barrier is locked between 12.30 and 3pm meaning that cars cannot leave or come onto the site during that time which can be irritating if you decide you want to go out but there are lots of walks and cycle routes around.
It is run by a family - 3 brothers? One spoke English. We and all the campers we spoke to found the men unfriendly and unsmiling. Most of the written information available was in German so we were reliant on fellow campers for info but they seemed to put all the British campers together anyway.
Although we paid extra for having an awning we were only allowed that space and told to move the car to the parking area because there was 'no room for the car', however if you didn't have an awning you could use that space to park your car....in fact it seemed you could park next to the caravan until they decided to put someone next to you but as it was so early in the season there was no need for them to do that. The pitches are close together and I should think there are parking problems in high season, especially as the car park outside the site is shared with the swimming pool close by.
There is a shop that sells very little but you could order fresh bread and rolls for the next morning from the delightful lady who ran it.
You are not allowed to exercise dogs on site but you can take them along the path by the stream next to the site and although there is only one dog poop bin (which is in the town car park 1.5 km away), there are plenty of ordinary waste bins by the stream and most people use those.
I would certainly go back to the area but I would not go to Belchenblick again.
