Camping in the woods at National Park 'de Hoge Veluwe'

About this campspace #s003925

Hidden camping in the woods around Arnhem.
A paved forest path does not betray anything of this special open nature spot in the extensive forests of the Gelders Landschap around Arnhem and Schaarsbergen. A rare special place to experience peace, nature and privacy. Here the deer graze and the foxes scratch in the front yard.
Do you want to sit around and relax or be active? You can do both. All that passes are walkers, cyclists, horse riders and sometimes a neighbor with a donkey.
The camping pitch has a private toilet, sink and an outdoor shower with cold and warm water. There is a swimming pool in the garden that you can use in the summer.
A short distance from the A50 and A12 and Arnhem, close to the Open Air Museum and Burgers Zoo and next to Park de Hoge Veluwe. Arnhem center, with all its amenities, is just around the corner. Within walking distance there is a cozy pancake house and a pizzeria where you can enjoy delicious food.

For the children there is the forest to discover, hide and seek and play. On the site there are also various playground equipment such as a hut, climbing tower and trampoline.
The camping spot is located on the Veluwezoom cycle route.

Meet Janneke, your host

Welcome! We live with our family and small animals (golden retriever named Fiep, 3 chickens and 1 rooster, cat Loes and foster rabbit Perry) in an idyllic spot in the forest within cycling distance of Arnhem center and practically next to Park de Hoge Veluwe. We love (sustainable) travel, for example through Home Exchange and we think Campspace is a great concept to share our place in the forest.
The camping spot is perfect for families, cyclists, hikers and other camping enthusiasts.

After my first Campspace adventure, I was so hyped and excited about this sustainable camping experience that I definitely wanted to do it again. So, when my boyfriend and I had the opportunity to go on another Campspace adventure, we almost immediately packed our stuff. We were planning to go to the Eifel in Germany to see the lovely fall woods there. Unfortunately, that was not possible due to COVID, so we decided to search for a Campspace near the Veluwe. Before our stay, the contact with the host was already very pleasing; she replied very fast and she sounded very kind so we were very excited to meet her.

When we arrived at the Campspace, we were warmly welcomed with coffee and chocolates. The hosts gave us maps of the national parcs and the city of Arnhem, for us to keep and use until we would leave. After we pitched our tent in their lovely big garden, we went on the tandem that we were allowed to use to explore the city of Arnhem. The next view days were filled with hikes to places such as the national parc the Hoge Veluwe and the Veluwezoom.

What made this adventure so special for us was a combination of both the openness of the hosts and the lovely autumn nature around the Campspace. The woods and national parc are easily accessible and even the city centre of Arnhem is very close to the Campspace. Besides, the whole garden is adjusted to Campspace because it is both very big and there even is a separated small wooden house with a toilet and a place to sit if the weather would be very bad.

In short, my boyfriend and I had a lovely stay at this Campspace because we were able to escape the busy Randstad for a few days by walking and sleeping in an environment that was completely surrounded by woods, but where all the services we would want were available.

We enjoyed it very much. Henk-jan and Janneke can give good tips about the area and their place in the garden is very nice and cozy. The surroundings are of course beautiful, right between the Veluwezoom and De Hoge Veluwe. There is a tandem that you can grab and we definitely recommend using it!

A big 5! What a beautiful place and what a heartwarming nice host and hostess Henk Jan and Janneke are. We enjoyed ourselves in the middle of the woods near Arnhem and thought we were in France. There is so much to do in the area that we were short of time. We are fans of this campspace and will definitely be back. And we are also a fan of campspace! So beautiful that people want to share their beautiful place with others

My partner and I stayed at Janneke's place for two nights and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

First off, Janneke and her husband were very hospitable and welcoming. They really made us feel comfortable to use their facilities as if they were our own! The campsite was the perfect getaway from the city offering the chance to wake up surrounded by greenery (accompanied of course by the rooster!).

The campsite has everything you need for a short stay in nature. It was great having a picnic table outside to eat our breakfast whilst enjoying the sun.

Overall, this experience exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend.

Janneke was very welcoming. Her house is amazing, with so much space around. She quickly handed us some warm tea and chocolate to warm up. She saved us from a night in the wild, as our other accommodation didn’t work out. She answered quickly and happily helped us arrive on the phone. We could choose our own place to camp, hopefully not too close to the early-waking rooster. We had our dinner and breakfast on the picnic table, while looking at the wild flowers and the immense forest around. They even had a tandem bike for us to explore around. Their lovely dog is super excited to see people.

The location is amazing, a large garden that’s flows over into the woods. The accommodation is clean and simple, including an outside shower!

During our stay the weather was wonderful, so we enjoyed the pool very much. It was refreshing during the heatwave.

The hosts and their children and pets are very nice! We felt very welcomed! They explained a lot on wildlife spots, the old house, and to accept the rooster... who waked us very early, but that completed our weekend in nature and to start the day with a nice morning walk!

The hosts were very friendly and the location was nice. The house is down a gravel road and is surrounded by trees. There are walking and biking trails behind the house. There was a picnic table set up for us to use and an outdoor shower.
