About this campspace

Welcome to our farm at the Kemnade reservoir!

We live on an old farm surrounded by forests and fields, just a 5-minute walk from Lake Kemnader in Bochum. We would like to offer other families or individuals/couples the opportunity to spend a nice and relaxing time on our property. Please note: this is not a commercial campsite! If you are expecting toilets/sanitary facilities or a super flat spot to pitch your tent or park your RV, this may not be the place for you!

What is there to experience here?

We sell eggs and homemade sourdough bread, focaccia or rolls and bagels for breakfast (upon request). The Kemnader reservoir invites you to go hiking, cycling or inline skating with or without pets. Surfing, pedal boating or kayaking/canoeing is also possible on the lake. Around the lake there are numerous food stalls, ice cream vans, places to stop for refreshments and even a beach bar!

Between the grain overlooking a lake. In the background, the cars from the highway pass by. The liveliness of the city is just around the corner. Ideal location to enjoy yourself. At least if you like primitive conditions.

How was the contact with the host?
The whole family was made to feel welcome. Easy going and used to dealing with different cultures. Nice on a bench in the sun, a glass of wine and a conversation.

Great place, terrific view and super friendly hosts.

How was the contact with the host?
Not only a place to camp but we could also use the fireplace and the hide out. Anne and Toby like to share their place and meet people. Very special

Tips for new guests?
Just sit on the bench and enjoy the view over the river and the fields.

We were warmly welcomed by Anne and Tonio at their beautiful place. A simple Biergarten at walking distance and a beautiful place to put our little tent. Thanks for the possibility to make a fire a night, the chats and I'd love to come back one day!

We spent a great short weekend with the delightful young Grosch family.
A place of peace and quiet in a lovingly prepared environment with the best view to the Kenmnderstausee.
Just arrive, sit on the beautiful blue bench and enjoy the view.
Everything is possible: cycling and paddling, industrial culture or just relaxing with one or two glasses of wine.
Thanks to the great hosts ... we will come back.

In the middle of the Ruhr area, yet in nowhere. Great spot with a great view of the lake with a nice, open-minded young family.
Absolute tip if you are looking for a place in Bochum or the surrounding area.
Drive-up wedges are an advantage, but that's about it.
We would definitely like to come back.

Quiet and yet centrally located. We felt very comfortable with Anne and Tonio. We would love to come back. Quiet place with a great view of the Ruhr valley and Lake Kemnader.
