Eco-Camping nearby Wad and DarkSky-park Lauwersoog 2
About this campspace #s003649
I have a free country house with a vegetable garden and a large surrounding garden with enough space for a tent. You can lie in the grass, sit under a tree or take the bike and cycle to the mudflats. When you return, you can pick vegetables from the garden or just sit in the attic window with a book.
The area is agricultural and has many hiking routes. You can take a walk in the 'Dark Sky Park' in the evening. As soon as it is dark, a world opens up for you. This is because there is hardly any light pollution in this sparsely populated area. You can see the Milky Way, Orion and many other stars. It's so bright, it looks like a 3D starry sky.

Beautiful area with very picturesque villages, the house of Frits is really pretty as well. Frits is a great host and lighted the fire pit for us at night. Had some good talk with the other campers and the frogs. Robert Parker an Jur the cats are great company. Highlight was the Loo with the view! Bathroom is basic, but has a nice hot shower! It can get pretty windy in the garden, but there is also a shed where you can put up your cooking gear in case of bad weather.
After a 2 hour drive from Amsterdam we arrived right at the sunset and were welcomed by a peaceful quiet landscape in the middle of Groningen. Frits wasn't there but after a quick phone call he told us where to set up our tent, which is a beautiful private spot near a little pond and overlooking the wide fields. We could use the private bathroom and the kitchen for cooking. In the area there is lots to explore varying from nature to little sleepy towns. The garden right next to our tent is comfy for hammock and bbq nights. Frits is friendly and relaxed, but mostly super hospitable. If you are looking for a place to unwind with privacy, this is the spot to go!
After a long day at work, my welcome at this campsite couldnt have been better. The host, Frits, was sitting in the sun in front of his cute house. He was kept company by his two cuddly cats and surrounded by the greens of his garden. I got served a nice cup of tea and he showed me around the house and the garden / camp site. In the fruit garden there are several spots under the trees, as well as a place for making a camp fire and a hammock. Further in the back, there are some more secluded spots with views over the surrounding fields. In the house, there is a shared kitchen, living room, meditation room bathroom and toilet. For the more adventurous campers there is a toilet in the garden from which you have a view over the farmers field. Frits relaxed attitude made me feel very welcome to use whatever space in the house and garden, which felt really nice.
In the evening I took a walk through a tiny forest and sheep fields that are easily accessible from the garden. Id hear nothing but birds singing and lambs calling their moms. To the same sounds I woke up the next morning, while I saw the sun rise over the fields.
I enjoyed my one-night stay very much and I cant wait to go back and explore all the nice surroundings this place has to offer (the coast, Noordpolderzeil, the open air museum, etc.).
We had a great time with a very relaxed host Frits, who has a super nice Campspace place in Warffum. Received with homemade apple juice and rocked to sleep by the stars and frogs. The next day we had a great day on the mudflats, really enjoyed it!
We loved our first Campspace experience! Beautiful garden (orchard!), many different places where you can set up your tent. Despite the fact that it is someones backyard, you feel like you are in the wilderness. There were other campers as well, but we still had a lot of privacy. I thought it was a really nice environment to discover, for me it was unknown Netherlands, because when I go this way, I usually travel to the Wadden, so the Wadden Sea on this side was a discovery! Highly recommended!
The whole experience was awesome, me and my partner loved staying at Frits place! ? Hes very kind and relaxed host that gave us a lot of privacy and shared all the good of his property. We could light up a beautiful campfire and paddle together on his canoe. The kitties are the sweet touch on his beautiful wood house surrounded by amazing green yard. After enjoying the day exploring the area around, we could have nice hot shower in a private bathroom and the open toilet is fun thing to remember! Thank you Frits for the hospitality
My first Campspace motorcycle adventure. Stayed one night in Fritz backyard. He was not there when I arrived so I received a friendly audio intake. Besides a caravan in front of the house, there was nobody there so I could pick my spot. Chose a secluded space at the edge of the garden, watching over a field. Put up my tent, and made myself a cup of coffee while listening to the birds and the frogs, and every now and then, one of the cats came by to see everything was still okay. At dinner time, Frits came to say hi, we chatted a bit and then he left again. Then I took a nap and around midnight I woke up and just sat outside in the dark with the milky way above me, the wind around me and the sounds of frogs nearby, and I slowly became utter stillness. Really a wonderful experience just sitting there being an empty vessel. Then in the morning, I did my kriya's. I planned to do them in the meditation space which is available, but the temperature was nice so I just did them outside. Then I took a shower, packed my tent. Had a final chat with Frits in the garden and then I left. All in all, I got what I wanted, a quiet place to just sit outside with nature around me and a friendly host who leaves you be.
We enjoyed our stay with Frits. What a beautiful place. Too bad we havent seen Frits. The contact over the phone and SMS was very pleasant, so we would have liked a cup of tea with Frits. Bird concerts, frog arias and cuddle sessions with the two lovely cats. It was all there. The toilet is an experience! We would love to come back again.
Last week the two of us stayed in a tent at Frits. We did not see Frits due to a combination of circumstances. But he told us over the phone exactly where everything was and where we could put up our tent. We had a good night and really enjoyed the area. The facilities are good, everything you need is there. We look back on a successful weekend
It was our first Campspace experience. We find it a very nice concept. Frits has a nice place, where you can nicely stay in your tent. So the camping experience was as expected. It is a bit tricky that there is no sink or something like it, that would make it even better
Our stay with Frits was absolutely amazing and relaxed. His place is beautiful and perfect for those who look for a peaceful place far away from the busy everyday life. Nature, animals everything in perfect harmony and a great environment to explore around his house.
It was great! Frits was really kind!!
Fritz’s camping/garden is very beautiful but very basic. Do not expect luxury: there is hot water in the shower and the possibility to use electricity in the shed. Toilet is primitive “green” with sawdust and a view over the field; in other words “loo with a view”. Contact with Fritz is fine! You can enjoy a campfire in the evening. We used the campsite as a base to Schiermonnikoog which was very doable.
Despite the rain, we had some nice days. The spot for the camper is slightly sheltered, so you are out of the wind but at the same time have a beautiful view over the fields. The shower was perfect and the toilet took some getting used to but in the end really great! When we are back in Groningen we will definitely come back.
The location is very beautiful, green and private. We were lucky to be the only campers, so we had the whole garden to ourselves. Frits was not present in the house during our stay, but he gave us all the information we needed over the phone. Very relaxed to be able to communicate this way and to coordinate everything in good faith. The garden is a wonderful place to relax and simply watch all the life that flows, flies, and crawls. The only downside is the factory a few hundred yards away. When the wind blows from the west, you can hear the factory noise, especially at night, this can disturb the peace a bit. There is also plenty to do and find in the nearby area. You will find a supermarket in Warffum, the boat to Schiermonnikoog is nearby, and you can eat delicious fresh fish in the harbour of Lauwersoog. This place was our first experience with Campspace and definitely tastes like more!
Respect for the Campspace. Enjoy, relax, discover and have fun.
