My 33rd year camping at LM 2019 and I've been on just about every campsite around the circuit. From the early days in the 80's on ACO Houx Annex with just a tent, a big queue for the loo and no showers, through Tribune, Houx, Maison Blanche and then onto private sites as I got old and soft with Speed Chills@ Bleu Sud, AMOC and PCGB ( Lycean - Village on the Curves).
IMO, nothing beats the Lycean village on the curves for facilties, catering, value for money, genuine care by Joy and her team and the brilliant viewing. Sure its a hike up to the Village and grandstands, but they run minibusses FOC. Even better this year as Porsche opened their experience centre on the Ford Chicane with a free shuttle to/from their viewing area opposite the Lycean site. That beats walking back @4AM! I now own an apartment opposite the Hotel de France in La Chartre Sur Le Loir, but still do camping on site for the Sat night to see the racing in the dark and the great atmosphere with a few beers and no driving afterwards. Numbers were definitely down this year though, as the area by the Concert/Dunlop Bridge was much quieter than usual. Views were that it was a combination of Brexit (largest number of visitors after the French are Brits) and the predictability of Toyota in LMP1 keeeping people away. Speed Chills cancelled their entire on site presence for 2019 . Bring on 2021 and the Hypercars with Valkyrie et al.
