We spent a week there in September, and were very pleased with it. Of course it was the very tail end of their opening season, so the site was never anywhere near full and therefore we couldn't tell how facilities would do under pressure. The toilet etc facilities are fine, though the lights are on central control and can leave one in the semi-darkness at some times. The pitches are clearly demarcated and of fairly generous size. There is barrier control at the gate. The swimming pool was still open (not that common for French campsites in September faced with rising fuel bills) and pleasant. I don't recall seeing a lot for children to do. The shop has its own bakery (another trend spreading through French sites) so fresh bread was never a problem. The village where the site is situated is very small with no shops (though there are two beach-side oyster establishments) but shopping in Châtelaillon-Plage is quite convenient, especially at the market which operates under cover every day and two days in the street. There is a large supermarket to the North on the main express route; beware that although access to it is quite speedy, getting away involves a draggy stop-start progress through the rest of the trading estate. There is a fairly regular bus service from Les Boucholeurs into La Rochelle. There is quite a nice beach at Les B and also at Châtelaillon We did not swim there as the weather was not ideal. Because of the vast oyster and mussel beds close by in what is a very enclosed stretch of water far from the open sea the water is full of sand. To get to the site we followed the instructions given in the French Guide Officiel list of sites, which takes you off the express route at the official turn-off for Châtelaillon, then working your way round roundabouts and across a bumpy level crossing. Much more sensible is to come off the express route one exit further south and take the D203 which spares you driving through Châtelaillon, though you need to keep a sharp eye open for the site entrance which is right among houses at the end of a dead-end street.
