Few sites enjoy a setting as good as this with great views.
Enjoying exceptional views over the Rhine valley, with a range of public facilities next door at discount prices for campers. Run with friendly efficiency by Herr Mischke, this is an excellent base for visiting the “Romantic Rhine” area, with its ancient ruins, vine-clad valleys and walking and cycling routes – or the owner’s castle, next door. Catch a local bus to the city of Koblenz or the charming town of Bad Ems.

As with most European countries you will find that if you at least try to communicate in the language of that country the welcome is far more friendly.
A bus stop a few hundred yard up the road takes you to Koblenz and from there boat and bus can be used to explore the Rhine. Koblenz has a terrible one way system which is easy to get lost in so be careful.
The abiding memory is having our meal outdoors overlooking the Rhine until sunset.
A good site, the bar/restaurant.

The site is run by an elderly gentleman who unfortunately does nothing to defuse national stereotypes and is unnecessarily unfriendly and strict. That aside, we had a lovely stay despite poor weather and the site is in a lovely location with great views. The sites 'second in command' was in contrast very friendly and went out of his way for us, even appearing with a baguette one morning after we had forgotten to order our bread, having made a special trip down into the village for it.
The site is well maintained and was reasonably quiet whilst we were there, meaning no queues for showers etc.
Travelling with younger children we were really surprised how little there was to do in this area other than walking and cycling. German tourist information is pretty hopeless unfortunately and does nothing to help, this really surprised us expecting typical German efficiency.
The much publicised swimming pool next door to the site was hardly ever open whilst we were there, it only opens when the weather is very, very good, and since the water is unheated you probably won't want to use it anyway, which is a shame because it was absolutely immaculate and spotless.
Highlights included the boat trip along the Rhine to Rudesheim, Koblenz is a lovely town and we cycled up the Lahneck riverside which was very pleasant. I wouldn't bother with the fortress above Koblenz - it is large but has very little of interest really especially for non-German speakers.
We would use this site again but probably only as a stopover.

200m up overlooking the Rhine. Handy for Koblenz. Don't miss out on the cable car to the fortress.

We found the site to be high on a hill. The pitch was good with a wonderful view of the Rhine 500 feet or so below and a castle on the opposite hill which was lit at night. The site was efficiently run and very clean. Showers cost a 50 cent piece for 8 minutes.
There was a nice restaurant/bar which served delicious food which was also available to take away. There was a tiny shop which sold post cards, ice creams and essentials, there is also also an adjacent swimming pool. Lahneck Castle was right by the site and could easily be visited.
The only reason I couldn't give the site 3 x 5's was the attitude to dogs! It is only dog tolerant rather than dog friendly. Dog owners are told at reception that the dog must make no noise at all and when they say that the dog must not go to the toilet on site they mean just that - not simply that you should clean up after the animal. Should your dog offend you will be severely ticked off - even if you have the poop bag in your hand at the time. (Oh, and corks are not provided!)
