About this campspace

Experience the warm and cozy atmosphere of Johanna's Bos, a charming mini campsite located in a beautiful emerging (still young) food forest. If you like vast landscapes and panoramic views, you will certainly enjoy our idyllic location in the polder, near the beautiful Amstelmeer.

The Amstelmeer offers a range of water sports options, such as swimming, windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing. There is also a beautiful route of about 14 km around the lake, ideal for walking or cycling. In addition, Johanna's Bos is centrally located between Schagen and Den Helder, and you can easily go to Texel for a day. Don't forget to explore the former island of Wieringen, which is full of beautiful spots. A visit to Hoenderdeall animal park is recommended for families, and of course a day of relaxation on the beach is always good when the weather is nice.

Tine and Ben, the owners of Johanna's Bos, know the area like no other, because they grew up here and after living in the Randstad for 20 years, they returned to their roots. On the campsite you will find a beautiful new toilet block, which was built last winter. If you want to enjoy a tasty breakfast with fresh rolls, coffee and juice in the morning, let us know and we will arrange it for you (can be done upon arrival). And if you fancy a refreshing Johanna's Beer upon arrival, we'll be happy to help.

Come and discover the beautiful flowers, meadow birds and typical Dutch skies at Johanna's Bos. Book your spot now and we hope you will have a wonderful stay at our campsite!

Perfect for...

couples, families, nature lovers, creatives

Hi, I'm Tine van Wel and I run Johanna's Bos together with my husband Ben. We moved back to our roots in 2020 with our three children.

We hope to welcome you with us.
