About this campspace #s004446

Your host

Agnes

Our small harbor is located on the Horsa (canal) with our one-man carpentry company. We swim in the water in the summer and it is also good fishing water. Our hideaway is approximately 1.5 km from the pleasant center of Workum and 4 km from the IJsselmeer beach. With a boat it is 1 km to sail to the Frisian lakes, our neighbor rents out sloops (for little money, so book in time, this can be done through me). There are beautiful (pound) cycling routes to explore in the area. Canoe rental and falcon rental is 1.5 km. A cozy ice cream farm 1 km away.
We have 2 lawns where you can put up a tent or caravan. In addition, there are 6 camper places, in the yard there is enough space to park the campers. There is a toilet block with facilities to do the dishes, use the toilet or urinal and take a shower.

Dear guests, We have a harbor and carpentry business in Workum on the Horsea canal. We really enjoy receiving guests, to let them enjoy our beautiful surroundings :-). The Horsea has good bathing and fishing water. You can use the toilet building of the harbor.
Our site is approximately 1.5 km from the center of Workum and approximately 4 km from the IJsselmeer beach in Workum.
Sincerely,
Agnes de Groot

Specially located place on a small marina and Camper overnight place, with which the excellently kept sanitary facilities (toilet, shower and sink) are shared.
Although the shower is in principle “warm” I had the misfortune of only getting cold water on my first shower attempt (seems to have been caused by simultaneously tapping hot water at another point). Fortunately this has not happened again.
The place we got for our tent was just big enough for our tent (De Waard Crested Tit); some more space around the tent to properly tension it was not there, also a pity that the place was surrounded by parking spaces and lanes for cars and campers. Nice view of the moored and passing ships.
It is a pity that the camping site is located at the back of a business park, which you always have to walk through if you want to visit the Workum. The adjacent complex of milk processing companies (Frico-DOMO, CCF-Campina) is also (slightly) audible.

How was the contact with the host?
Excellent, good contact in advance and well received.
Nice that they have also provided tourist information in the area, including renting a sloop from the neighbor (recommended!)

Tips for new guests?
Take a boat trip on the lakes with a neighbor's sloop!

We had a couple of very nice days on Agnes's little harbour. We brought our SUPs and could directly go for some nice tours around Workum. Very recommended.

How was the contact with the host?
Agnes is a very nice and communicative person. We felt very welcome.

Tips for new guests?
The Workum weather can be unpredictable. Best you bring a tarp to protect yourself from sudden rain bursts..

We hebben met onze daktent op een topplek gestaan; kort aan het water, in een haventje, waarin we heerlijk hebben gezwommen. De sanitaire voorzieningen zijn uitmuntend. Workum ligt op wandelafstand en is idyllisch mooi.

How was the contact with the host?
Agnes gaf ons een warm en vriendelijk ontvangst. Ze geeft duidelijke uitleg en, indien nodig, altijd bereikbaar.

Really quite camping place along the canal. The main nearby city can be reached by bike in 5-10 min, and the surroundings are really nice. Clean toilets and showers and welcoming host.

How was the contact with the host?
Really easy via campspace or phone

Tips for new guests?
May suggest to go relatively early so you can rent a canoe.

Super nice place on the water with a view of boats. We stood with our tent for a week and fully enjoyed everything in the area, where there is much to do. With the boat of the neighbors on the lakes is definitely recommended! we thought it was too cold to swim now, who knows, maybe we'll come back for that!

How was the contact with the host?
Very well! Mega friendly and attentive and cozy. Always positive and optimistic.
Super clean sanitary facilities lovely shower!

Tips for new guests?

The contact went very well, very nice people.
Highly recommended, small but nice, 5 places on the water. New sanitary facilities make it complete.
Within walking distance of the small town of Workum, where sailing yachts and old ships are moored behind the church.

This Campspace is located on the edge of Workum, one of the famous 11 cities of Friesland. It is located on the outside of a business park on a waterway that has a direct connection with the Frisian lakes. This place is therefore perfect for water sports enthusiasts. Boats can be rented from the neighbors and there are also possibilities for renting canoes in the area. The water is suitable for swimming and is excellent fishing water. The 2 places for tents are not super big, but they do have a nice picnic table and offer enough privacy even if there are several campers. The sanitary facilities are great and the host keeps it very clean.

Host Agnes is very friendly, easily accessible and ready to give her guests tips for fun activities in the area. There is also a folder in the sanitary building with information about the area, definitely recommended to take a look.
This Campspace is a great base for endless cycling trips through the Frisian lake area. And after that bike ride it is wonderful to relax on a terrace or in a restaurant in Workum.
The nearby beautiful beach of Workum also offers opportunities for fun activities such as kite surfing or just enjoying a beautiful sunset. The train station is also within walking distance, making this place also accessible by public transport.

I would like to mention one possible activity separately, renting a pedal boat from https://www.waterfietsfriesland.nl/ .
These types of pedal boats can only be rented in two places in the Netherlands and Workum is one of them. We were allowed to try the bikes on Saturday evening and it was so much fun! Really something you must try when you visit this Campspace. You can reserve the bicycles through Agnes.

Very friendly and warm welcome by the gesvrouw Agnes who immediately gives you tips to explore the region. Small camping site on a jetty, very neat showers and sanitary facilities. Located in an industrial area, but keep your eyes on the green and this will certainly not disturb you. We stayed during the week-end and so little activity on the site. Four star campsite.
