About this campspace #s004613

Your host

Pieter

On this private piece of meadow of 100 m² you have a beautiful view of the Berendrechtse Buitenmolen and you can enjoy a beautiful sunset.

The campsite


You always have the camping spot all to yourself. There is room for a few smaller or 2 larger tents and a maximum of 8 people. The basic facilities are: 1 drinking water tap, 1 socket, 1 compost toilet and 1 'sunset sofa'.

The site is 70 meters from the street, at the intersection of the slow roads Berendrechtsvoetpad and Toon Verbraakpad. It is surrounded by shrubs which, like the surrounding meadows, are teeming with life.

All the woodwork on the camping site has been recovered and assembled together with miller Jorn: from beams washed ashore in the Galgeschoor - Lillo, over discarded meadow posts to pallets ready for heating.

Area


The mill often rotates, and there is a cozy snack bar with a terrace, children's playground, trampolines and mini golf .

In Berendrecht-Zandvliet-Lillo there is still a lot of nature and heritage. You are halfway between Antwerp and Bergen op Zoom (both at 20-25 km). But also on the border of Polder and Kempen, of rural villages and port industry, of Flanders and the Netherlands.

on a trip


This is the ideal starting point for one-day walking and cycling tours in the area or a little further away, such as the Molenwandelroute , the Gansrijdersroute (bicycle): pdf with description / junctions , the walking routes of Grenspark Kalmthoutse Heide , the district routes around heritage and nature , about -and-back to Yerseke (food & drinks), Wemeldinge (beach), Scheldeoord (beach), Lillo-Doel-Emmadorp (Scheldt and Saeftinghe), Bergen op zoom (historic town), ...

But it is also a great stopping point on a multi-day trip along mini campsites , such as a 'Rondje Westerschelde' with ferries Lillo-Liefkenshoek and Breskens-Vlissingen or a 'Rondje Zeeland' via Willemstad, Tiengemeten, Goedereede, Westenschouwen, Dreischor, Zierikzee, Oranjezon, Veere, Ellewoutsdijk, Nisse, Scheldeoord, Wemeldinge, Yerseke and much more…

Nice small, but nice spot just over the Dutch border in Belgium. But also on a border between nature (several nearby forests, such as the Reigerbos, Moretusbos, Brabantse Wal and Kalmthoutse Heide), culture (the defense belt of Antwerp) and industry (the port of Antwerp). The camping site is located directly on a cycle path, but the high vegetation provides sufficient privacy and ensures that the camping site can also be found by the many birds. In the morning it was wonderful to enjoy a fresh cup of coffee and a view of the mill and the grassland behind the camping site. Where some horses were grazing, the birds fluttered around merrily and a hare jumped by from an unexpected corner.
The compost toilet was well maintained, drinking water is available via the garden hose connection and an electric charging point for telephone or power bank has also been considered. There is also a nice picnic table and parasol, which is of course ideal for lightweight campers, so you can actually leave chairs at home.
As for trips, as mentioned plenty of options. I took a nice walk through the various forests, but also along the various bunkers, fortresses and redoubts of the defense line of Antwerp. Please note that because of the bat protection, not all forts are accessible/accessible. And finally I could enjoy the harbor with all the activity and impressively large freight ships in the harbor of Berendrecht.

Tips for new guests?
Do not take too many things with you as a car camper, because you have to walk a short distance over the bike path to get to the camping spot. And don't forget to have a bite to eat at the adjacent mill, the food there is delicious!

Lovely spot, met all our expectations. The picnic table and umbrella were ideal because of the beautiful weather. Nice base for bike rides and walks.

Great camping site, clean toilet. The kids loved the proximity of horses/ponies. The restaurant at the mill is also highly recommended for children.

How was the contact with the host?
Good.

Tips for new guests?
At first I was looking for the entrance to the camp site in the wrong street, Zandvlietsestwg 3 instead of Zandweg 3, a few houses further, where nothing can be found.

Saskia

Tell us about your experience
This camping site is incredibly beautiful and cleanly decorated! Nicely decorated compost toilet, beautiful wooden bench, a border with wild flowers, a beautiful working old windmill nearby, drinking water and electricity. Plus, you get this place privately to yourself. The only slight drawback, if the wind is wrong, is the nighttime noise from the harbor industry, but you can sleep well with that.

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly and attentive host, gives hiking tips, and knows the neighborhood very well.

Tips for new guests?
You can take the Waterbus to Antwerp nearby in Lillo. A boat trip on the Scheldt, an experience in itself!

We stayed two nights in Kamp Molenzicht. All facilities are available and user-friendly. During our breakfast on Sunday morning we could watch the miller start the mill. Afterwards we could also take a look inside, a unique experience! The rooming spot is an ideal starting point for various cycling and walking tours.

How was the contact with the host?
Pieter was very welcoming and helpful.

In May 2021 we went camping for a night at camp Molenzicht. Host Pieter gave us tips for walks and nice addresses in advance. The camp site is intimate and cozy, with a view of a beautiful working windmill and a cafe nearby. Beautiful surroundings, nice camping spot. Highly recommended for walkers and cyclists.
