About this campspace #s002602
Come camping with us and enjoy peace, space and nature!
Our natural camping site has spacious pitches between fruit trees and berry bushes with a view over the countryside. In the immediate vicinity are various nature reserves where you can enjoy cycling and walking.
The farm has comfortable and clean sanitary facilities and there is a recreation room with books, games and a piano. We sell apple juice from apples from our own orchard, organic fair trade coffee and tea, beer, wine and ice cream.
In the neighborhood are the heathlands Hijkerveld and Witterveld, Fochteloërveen with the cranes, the bird hide in Diependal and forestry Hooghalen. You can swim in the nearby Baggelhuizerplas.
Within cycling distance is Fochterloërveen where nowadays cranes are again and where the snake eagle has been spotted. The forests of Hooghalen forestry are vast and quiet. Spruce and larch define the face. There are also beautiful heathland areas and pools.
You will also find the former Westerbork camp and Radio Sterrenwacht Astron in Hooghalen.
Assen is only 8 kilometers. A visit to the Drents Museum is always worthwhile.
The famous TT circuit is located between Assen and our camping site.
The prison museum in Veenhuizen is also a fun trip for everyone.

Meet Loes, your host
Loes and Ronald welcomed us heartily, despite the distance we had to keep because of Corona. They had arranged a toilet tent for us, because we came walking with backpacks ourselves. Loes and Ronald are super friendly and like to chat. We were allowed to choose a spot ourselves, and found one with a great view over the farmlands. I can definitely recommend this place.
This was a top spot! Very neat and cosy nature campsite with a nice view. We had private spots because it was quiet. Good service in terms of cleaning, mobile toilet, and hospitality. We took a nice long walk with the dog. There are roe deer and cows in the backyard.
We expect our guests to be quiet, especially between 23:00 and 7:30.
Because we are a nature camping site, the nature camping card is mandatory. It is also available from us (in Het Groene Boekje) and costs € 15.95.
For electricity we charge € 2.50 per day. And for a dog € 1.50.
