Fort

Come camp at our fort. Cycling and walking from the Fort is very possible. The LAW Waterline Path runs along the Fort. A Klompenpad starts close to the entrance of the fort. For the NS walk from Gorinchem to Leerdam and other Struin Routes, the fort is often the resting point or overnight stop for the weary traveler.

Our fort is part of the New Dutch Waterline, a defense line that could not be started until 1845. This line runs from Muiden to the Biesbosch and contains more than 60 fortifications.

It is a tower fortress and was built in 1845. A major renovation was already taking place in 1878: the construction of the Contrescarp.

Scout Miranda About the scout program

Camping on a fort is like a little adventure. It starts when you arrive over a bridge at the fort. A beautiful old historic building. As a camping guest, I am allowed to walk through the fort. From the toilet and shower rooms in the fort, I have to go through a tunnel in the fort to enter the camping field. From this field, we have a nice view over the river the Waal. While sitting in the sun, We can see the big boats passing by from here. There are a lot of possibilities for nice walks along the river. It is also possible to visit Castle Loevestein on the other side of the river. You can reach it with a water taxi.

In the evening we made a campfire on one of the firepits. A nice stay at a beautiful historical place.

We had a fantastic time at Fort Vuren. Our hosts were so helpful, even though we came to them with questions at weird times or when they were having a break. They have just started managing the accommodations and everything worked very well. The area is beautiful for camping, we had a nice spot under the trees. Vuren itself is calm, you can swim in the river Waal or take the ferry to the castle or a fortified town. Every day, we had some beers on their cosy terrace. I would definitely recommend visiting this place!
