Campspace is home to all types of gamping, glamping and small-scale campsites in over 30 countries across the world.
Many people associate campsites with large commercially-run terrains housing row upon row of identical white RVs. As camping grows popular amongst younger, more diverse communities, a variety of new types of campsite are increasing in number. These campsites often focus more on truly experiencing nature the way it was intended and tend to offer unique overnight stays that offer more peace and quiet. You can find all of these new forms of campsite, including garden campsites, glamping campsites and small-scale campsites on Campspace.
Campspace is home to all types of gamping, glamping and small-scale campsites in over 30 countries across the world. Operating mainly in western Europe, our ultimate aim is for everyone to be able to travel to a campspace in less than half an hour. We don’t just sign every campsite up to our platform though – campsites chosen for the platform represent the Campspace spirit and exude everything our community loves about camping. Campspace campsites bring guests closer to nature and provide opportunities to truly connect with our hosts by learning about their property, culture, surroundings and of course, the hosts themselves. Our campsites are small in size and focus on rest, wellbeing and getting the most out of local nature. Most importantly, Campspace campsites take on all shapes and sizes. For every campspace that focuses on simplicity, there is another that takes your camping experience to the next level with pitches in trees, wine barrels, bunkers and rafts! No matter the type of campspace you choose, one thing’s for sure: a stay at a Campspace campsite will leave you feeling rested, contented and high on life!

In several western European languages, the word 'camping' refers to a physical place where people pitch their tents, park their RVs or stay in provided accommodation. In English, we use the blanket term campsite or campgrounds. Campspace is a proponent of small-scale campsites, garden campsites and other less commercial camping endeavours, however you'd like to describe them! Read more about the different types of campsite in our article Campsite types explained.
While camping is indeed legal in the Netherlands, there is no wild camping permitted. This means outdoor enthusiasts must pitch their tents in designated locations.
