Our estate has a natural mini campsite. With many spacious and private places to relax. There is a toilet block with ladies and gents toilets with two adjacent showers. An outdoor sink with five hot/cold water taps for washing dishes, etc
Lots of natural beauty around you and a wonderful rest. Possibility to take places with electricity (incl.) and there is WiFi throughout the site. Also a swimming pond and large cozy fire pit.

There is a wood oven on the camping site that can be used free of charge for ready-made pizzas or for homemade pizzas and other dishes. Great to do, fun and tasty!

You are most welcome in Toldijk in the Achterhoek. Our estate is located in the municipality of Bronckhorst in the outskirts of the quiet town of Toldijk, between the particularly atmospheric Hanseatic cities of Zutphen and Doesburg. Toldijk is a real rural municipality in the province, which is very richly endowed with natural beauty.

The peaceful landscape around Toldijk is the so-called bocage landscape. It offers a magnificent variety of forests, meadows, fields and wooded banks, between which beautiful characteristic farms are hidden.

The farm is a wonderful base for cycling or walking routes or just relaxing in the silence of the Gelderland landscape. In the area you will find many farm shops with regional products or stalls along the road with fruit and vegetables that offer the season.

You can easily rent bicycles from us via bike total Zutphen with delivery and pick-up service or via NS station Zutphen.

We have two pole sockets for power! So not those blue plugs. Think of an adapter plug! Bring cozy outdoor lighting. We often get nice thanks for the smooth atmosphere here.

Be welcome!

Sanne

Tell us about your experience
Very restful place. Lots of space (we were almost alone but even with a fuller occupancy you would still have plenty of room). Lots of hidden corners to discover or stroll around. Animals, swimming pond, fire bowls, what more could you want. Too bad the showers were cold. In the summer this might be refreshing but in November a warm shower is sometimes nice too :) in all honesty we didn't bother the host about this so maybe for the same money he could have solved it. So no penalties for this. Because we were usually out and about during the day, we did not meet the host in person. We would definitely come back again.

How was the contact with the host?
Smoothly. Friendly contact via Campspace. Rapid response.

Tips for new guests?
Bring a light to go to the toilet in the evening, it's quite dark 😉 bring your bathing suit for the swimming pond (and don't forget it at home like us). Take the children in search of the chickens, the cats and the beautiful peacock.

Hello Sanne,
Glad you enjoyed our idyllic spot! And yes, oops, forgot to turn the boiler back on… I could have turned it back on for you. A light is handy because you are in the middle of the outside area. Also has something. And the animals are a nice addition! Glad you enjoyed the area and the Hanseatic cities so much in the late season.
Thank you for your positive information! love that! greetings jaco

Small, pleasant No-nonsense campsite. Facilities (shower/toilet) are shared with the group house. That went fine.
At full moon, the campsite is well lit and there is sufficient energy from the chakras and stones.

How was the contact with the host?
Easy host, easily accessible.

Tips for new guests?
There is electricity but the campsite itself has little lighting. (we liked it)

Host Jaco has responded

Totally correct! Wonderful to relax in the Achterhoek! At the entrance is a lamppost and between the front and rear lamps. So bring a light. Beautiful with full moon but really dark with low moonlight!
Glad you enjoyed it and thank you for the compliments! greetings jaco

Linda

Tell us about your experience
For our stay with 10 people, we had rented 4 camping pitches and the mobile home for 3 people for 2 nights.
In the description of the mobile home it is mentioned that there is a stove and water - the whole kitchen is even equipped with all pots and pans. The strange thing about this is that there is no gas or running water and the entire kitchen is unusable. A chemical toilet is also mentioned, but this is really just a bucket with water in it. As a solution to the lack of running water, there was a jerry can that we could use and fill at the public toilet building, only it is very difficult to place the can under the tap which made it difficult to fill. According to the description, the mobile home would also have a veranda, but I'm guessing it has yet to be built - as we haven't seen it. On arrival at the mobile home it was very messy and not clean. A vacuum cleaner was also not present and have not been able to clean it on departure.

Nevertheless, the camping pitches were pleasant and equipped with electricity. Also, the public shower and toilet building was clean and the showers were really nice (good water pressure!).
When we indicated to Jaco on the second evening that we really couldn't cook because of the persistent hard rain (it was said that we had to cook outside on the witch's cauldron), we were allowed to use the shed with fire bowl and stove. That was very nice.

All in all: beautiful surroundings, nice place, but very misleadingly described on the website and too expensive for what you get.

September 2022 · Translated from dutch

Host Jaco has responded

Hi Linda,
Glad you enjoyed the campsite and the wagon shed / recreation room. For the water you can use the filling hose that is present at the toilet building. A new gas bottle must be connected which we will do again for the new season. The witch's cauldron is a nice option if you like it or bbq. But you were allowed to use the carriage shed. It's a shame you left the gas stove so dirty. Did not have to. The toilet bucket is for nighttime use and is part of the standard camping equipment. This can be emptied and cleaned at the chemical deposit table. That is how it is described. If you want more luxury and comfort instead of a camping place, you can rent one of our studios for a little more, but your father didn't want that.
Mobile home 1 has its own private veranda, mobile home 2 does not have that as stated in the advertisement. This is also clearly visible in the photos. Both have a huge unobstructed view to enjoy. We couldn't do much about the rain, but we did think about a suitable solution with the covered wagon shed. Thank you for your compliments about the beautiful surroundings and nice place and the toilet building! Very clean and great showers!
Thank you for your response, we are happy to take it with us.

Wonderful campsite. Everything you need at hand and super atmosphere. Nice area for walking and definitely recommended with the dog. Would have liked to have known in advance that an autocross would take place the weekend I was there, I would have chosen a different weekend. Swimming pond looked lovely, unfortunately not allowed for dogs.

How was the contact with the host?
Absolutely great! Was always around for a chat or questions.

Definitely go! Just check the events in the area in advance.

Yes, luckily we get to hear a lot, a super atmosphere!
Thank you for your compliments!
Once a year there is a cross in Toldijk. I always mention that. For one an outing for the other to go out. Due to the warm weather, the swimming pond was used a lot and there were many dogs on our property, so we decided no more dogs in the pond. Also keep the pond nice and clean and they do not go through the plants.
Thx again and see you soon! greetings jaco

What an incredibly open and warm atmosphere there is at De Vrije Geest! After we were warmly welcomed by Jaco and his beautiful peacock, we were allowed to choose a spot on his natural mini campsite full of pizza ovens! Then we took a walk through the special energy meadow and along the beautiful swimming pond and we enjoyed the evening with a freshly made pizza from the oven and a campfire at our place!

How was the contact with the host?
We felt more than welcome and at home! Jaco responds quickly, and was always around for questions or to chat!

Tips for new guests?
Bring kindling for a campfire or to stoke the pizza oven! Bags of wood are for sale at the mini campsite.

Pieter

Tell us about your experience
We spent two nights at De Vrije Geest. It was our 1st experience camping in a tent with our two daughters (9 and 6 years old).

The experience was great! The girls immediately found children to play with. The atmosphere from the host feels friendly and familiar. All very relaxed. The toilets and showers were clean and perfect to regulate hot water.

The estate is wonderfully quiet and the energy circles with crystals were super cool. The chairs scattered around the field have been used for stargazing at night and enjoying the zen feeling during the day.

Our children baked sandwiches on a stick over a fire bowl, baked dough in the pizza oven and climbed endlessly in the nearby tree.

Excellent current at the pitches. We are in love! We will definitely come back here!

How was the contact with the host?
Perfect

Tips for new guests?
Bring toilet paper. Expect nothing and get everything.

This mini campsite is nice and quiet and green. the two of us stayed a week with our trailer tent. sanitary facilities are small but nice and are kept very clean.
we will definitely go back again, because apart from the campsite, the area is very beautiful and lots to do!
attached 2 pictures of our place, it was departure day, so very empty, gives a good idea of this field. further on are more spots both open and also sheltered by the trees.

How was the contact with the host?
Jacco is friendly, cheerful and hospitable and is ready for you. If there is something wrong or not working properly, it will be fixed/fixed right away. very nice!

Tips for new guests?
take toilet paper with you, this is not hanging there. and there is no soap at the sinks to wash your hands.

What a lovely place we had! At the very back, plenty of privacy, shade, view to the horizon and lit by a beautiful full moon. The campsite has a festival atmosphere, especially in the evening, because of the campfires, pizza oven, lights on almost every tent / camper, and happy guests.

Cozy campsite, beautiful swimming pond. But ... 1 toilet for ladies and 1 toilet for men was far too little. Regularly waiting in line of 7. Also only 2 showers whose drainage was bad. The water was ankle high in the shower. Too bad we only stayed 1 night.

How was the contact with the host?
Jaco is a jovial man. Fine.

August 2022 · Translated from dutch

Correct. We had a shower drain clogged. That was quickly remedied. Too bad you just had to experience that. We have two separate toilets next to the chemical discharge table. Here guests can also empty their toilet bucket. So easy!

We were right next to a big car racing event. Would have been better if he had only allowed visitors to this event because all those seeking tranquility came home from a cold fair. In addition, the campsite was quite full with not many showers and toilets. Very low sinks (toddler height) for washing dishes. A very nice large garden at the campsite that makes up for a lot.

How was the contact with the host?
He offered to let us come back one more time which was very kind but we don't have much need to go back to this place again.

Tips for new guests?
First check that there isn't a car race going on!
Bring your own toilet paper.

What a lovely campsite. Been to quite a few campsites, but this one is high on the list after our stay. We were supposed to stay 1 night, but it became 2. The children aged 7 and 9 had a great time. The swimming pond was beautifully landscaped and wonderfully refreshing during the tropical days. And it's great that you can make a fire anywhere with a fire bowl. Sanitary facilities were limited, but clean and a very nice shower. We will come back 100%. Thank you Jaco for our successful mini vacation!

We were looking forward so much to a cool swim but the ‘swimming pond’ was a stagnant pond of water with algae throughout - not a safe place to swim! We also felt that one shower and 2 toilets were not sufficient for so many people - they were packed in to the space. We did however have a good night’s sleep.

How was the contact with the host?
Great - friendly welcome and very helpful.

Host Jaco has responded

Hi barely, thanks for your compliments. At the moment people are having a great time swimming! The swimming pond has a clock that goes on two x three o'clock. So you didn't conclude that correctly. the middle of the pond is completely free for swimming. In extremely hot weather, there is some healthy algae on the side of the natural plant row.
Glad you slept well! On the side of the farm near the chemical dump table are two additional toilets. Have a nice day and greetings Jaco

Tell us about your experience
We had a pleasant stay. Nice place where we could stand together as a group. It was very full and every spot was used by Jacco. (Pentecost!). Despite the crowds, it was pleasant and sometimes you had to wait at the sanitary facilities, well 2 toilets.....
Positive was that we were just allowed to light a fire, that there was very hot water for washing dishes and shower. We also liked the grass borders and it gave a bit of the feeling of a private place, without the hedges.
Tip for Jacco, maybe make a sink at an adult height and a shelter above it, if it rains. And prune around the pole of the stream.

How was the contact with the host?
Only seen Jacco on arrival, he knew we were coming as a group and had already 'saved a spot' for us.

Tips for new guests?
Bring toilet paper and a regular plug.

June 2022 · Translated from dutch

Host Jaco has responded

That's nice too, so many compliments and then two stars. But nice tips that are already in the making! The two extra toilets at the chemical disposal table have already been completed. So we now have four toilets. Instead of two. Already in the comments.
A shelter above the outside washing trough will be done before the summer. The roof panels are already ready on the environmental square. We are not going to raise the washing trough, because now children can also access it, who can often do their thing together with a daddy, mom or big brother/sister. So that is deliberately placed a little lower. So much fun for the kids! Also wash with hands.
Thx for your compliments on the decor and the grass landing! Nice and free and natural feeling. We are going to create some extra space in the large meadow so that we remain a spacious campsite with the next Pentecost or Ascension.
Thank you and for you five loving stars!

Wij hadden een erg fijne plek met onze drie camperbussen. De achtertuin van Jaco is mooi groen met allerlei fijne plekjes in de zon. Jaco is vriendelijk en behulpzaam. De toiletvoorzieningen zijn wat karig (slechts twee wc's en douches op een hoop mensen) en ook niet heel schoon. Dat vergte dus wat tactisch planningsvermogen.

Thank you myrthe for your feedback! Glad you enjoyed a lovely weekend. We have now been able to add two extra toilets so we are going from two to four toilets! These are located to the right of the chemical toilet / dumping table. Two was always enough, but with Pentecost and Ascension, the weekends are just too busy for that. So that's solved!.
All guests can use the pizza oven for free, you don't have to pay extra rent for it. Didn't you have to do it either!
In the past we have had groups of young people that I sometimes had to remind them to take it easy. That's where those reviews come from. From 2022 we will no longer accept youth groups and that is so quiet! Delicious! See you next x! greetings jaco

We did not see Jaco during the entire stay. He didn't even have the decency to introduce himself. The campsite is indeed very messy. You can be renovating, but then you don't have to leave everything in plain sight all the time. Toilet building was not really clean. Washing trough for washing dishes hangs much too low, not really useful if you already have pain in your back. To top it off, a group of men came into the separate accommodation on Friday evening and made a huge noise with music outside until 4.30 am. They could have easily partyed inside. I think that you as the owner could have intervened. They had no regard for the other guests at all. It's a shame because it's a very nice place in itself, but I'd rather go elsewhere.

How was the contact with the host?

September 2021 · Translated from dutch

Hi Marieke,
I'm sorry you experienced it that way.
Sometimes my wife receives the guests usually I do it. But we are not going to knock on tents or walk into caravans because of the privecy. I'm not on the animation team either. With us you can enjoy the nature and space around you in peace.
Noise nuisance or the like Is not desirable with us. In addition, we are currently renovating the group accommodation to rent it out only for families from 2022.

The washing trough is deliberately lowered so that children can reach it. So nice of course!
The waste container has now been emptied. Few bothered about this. But not everyone is the same of course...

With a positive ending,
I salute you with 5 stars!

Tell us about your experience
Beautifully situated site, which unfortunately is not or hardly maintained, and that was clearly visible. No water taps on the campsite, here and there an electricity connection after a good search (ordinary sockets, no standard camping connection).
The sanitary facilities are completely inadequate: 1 men's toilet and 1 women's toilet, 2 showers for all camping guests, including the guests of the group accommodation. 1 sink where the tap worked, the other sink had no water. No toilet paper available. Simply unacceptable for any campsite.
If you pay 29 euros per night (via Campspace), you know that you are being faked. Such a stay should not cost more than 15 euros/night, and then you must be aware of the defects in advance, so that you can make a conscious choice. Unfortunate!

How was the contact with the host?
Just waved and said that we can find a place where we wanted. After that we didn't see him again. We found it strange that the manager / owner / host did not show up at the campsite.

September 2021 · Translated from dutch

Host Jaco has responded

oh dear eric,
Sorry about your negative experience.
Although I must say that your review does not match the experiences that other positive holidaymakers have at our beautiful natural mini campsite.

Nor can I serve as your private animation team. There are other larger family campsites for that. From now on, please read carefully and look at the photos what I and other colleagues offer before booking. Campspace has very nice places to offer. We offer peace and a lot of natural nature. So no places with hedges and a number where you have to stand. We let the guests find out for themselves.

I had to close a sink Eric due to the Corona measures of other half meters.... Hence.

We are going to expand the sanitary facilities above the accommodation in the autumn. Every year the mini campsite becomes more fun and beautiful. We get a lot of pleasure out of that and enjoy it when our guests enjoy it. In that respect you really fall outside the boat with your mood because we experience camping guests as always cheerful and loving who are just relaxing and enjoying.

And about the stage. The cheapest way to camp is in your own garden. Also saves tourist tax.

Good luck and best wishes,

Very relaxed campsite. Really love that is it is so small. The main highlight for us was the small water pond. Some minor downsides is the lock + door handle on one of the showers is broken.

A bit scary to let your little ones run around there with some pieces of wood also having some exposed nails.

Tell us about your experience
It was a bit of a scratch on arrival; NK cross and a large pool of water at the entrance.
But with a few steps further on to the campsite, we were already convinced to stay. The fields, the pond, the playground and camping spots were special. A nice setup. It was easy to make contact with other guests. The cross is then a nice topic of conversation. We got a little late here on Saturday. The next day we went for a long walk and got nothing more from it. Still perhaps worth mentioning. Gives a fairer start.
We swam wonderfully in the pond, the children at least. We enjoyed the atmosphere in the evening with fire pits everywhere in front of the tent. A nice mix of tents, caravans and motorhomes.
What was previously reported was the plumbing. A little too small and could be neater. Perhaps better after the renovation of the group accommodation with its own sanitary facilities.
The recycling center could also perhaps have a different place, there is enough space to set it up a bit hidden. Now also a large waste container as a view.
It might be nice to invite all guests for a pizza night for 1 evening. This can lead to beautiful contacts and a greater understanding of environmental sounds.
It could all have just a little more attention.

It is a nice place from there to make some nice trips in the area (with children): Hertenpad, maze, climbing forest and open-air museum Arnhem were toppers.
Maybe take a look at cross days and otherwise enjoy yourself outside the weekends.

The location is certainly as beautiful as in the pictures. Unfortunately, during our stay there was NK autocross on the open field next to the camping site, which caused unbearable noise nuisance. Even through the night. The host should have informed us of this when booking. We can imagine that it would be a wonderful place without this event. But now our experience was horrible.

July 2021 · Translated from dutch

Host Jaco has responded

Hi Sophie,
I have received compliments that the campsite is in reality even more beautiful than the photos show. Always nice to hear.
The cross has passed through the municipality of Bronckhorst in the end. Many thought it was a spectacle And went to watch. A few visited the beautiful Hanseatic cities or went cycling or walking. In the evening there is no cross.
Despite this, I hope you still enjoyed your stay with us.

Beautiful and casual stay in nature. Wonderful natural swimming pond. Downside was the autocross next to the campsite on arrival. That should have been reported in advance and too few sanitary facilities for so many guests..

Exactly what we were looking for! A lovely place to get away from it all. We had a spacious place with a beautiful view. The swimming pond was sheltered with beautiful water lilies. Great to wake up in or to cool down.

How was the contact with the host?
Friendly man. You can choose a spot yourself.

Tips for new guests?
You can buy a bag of wood and rent a fire bowl at the campsite. Bring your own kindling, marshmallows and frankfurters and you will have a wonderful evening.

Beautiful campsite, with excellent facilities. However, the service of the pizza dough has not been going on for a while (28-07-21). There are several pizza ovens on the site that you can use. It should also be mentioned that the showers are really lovely!

Jaco is a friendly, accessible, cool guy ;). Although he is not always present and/or accessible.

Absolutely no contact with Jaco. A nice place and no noise pollution. Shower room could use some improvement in terms of cleaning. Also a lot of waste in the containers and the sink was always full of food leftovers. I'm not going back here again. Sorry

Hi Karin,
Astrid took care of you and so you were able to choose a nice spot.
The sanitary room is cleaned twice a day, as well as the large sink. Usually the guests handle these spaces neatly. We have an environmental street to separate waste. Glass, paper and two large residual containers. These are emptied regularly.

Tell us about your experience
We really had a fantastic stay here! The pitches are spacious and separated by some greenery. The view is unobstructed and the natural pool is wonderful and soothing. The management is free, but if you need or want something, the management is there. The only 'downside' is the limited sanitary facilities: 2 toilets and 2 showers for the entire campsite. A mobile sanitary unit such as at festivals or at the neighboring campsite would make the stay even more pleasant. The environment is also fantastic. You can especially cycle endlessly, including along the IJssel, and visit picturesque villages such as Bronckhorst and Doesburg. Definitely a place to come back to.

Tips for new guests?
Bring some mosquito repellent.

Hi Eveline,
We are glad that you also enjoyed our camping.

For the toilets we also have a chemical toilet building for emptying your chemical toilet.

The experience you can have depends on who else is there. We spent the first days in the noise of Jaco's group accommodation and the last days in the noise of partying young people at the neighbours' campsite. Overall the place was a bit disappointing. For example, the swimming pond was really a small pond in which you can stand, but not swim. There were also few toilets that had to be shared with the group accommodation.
Very nice was the pizza oven that you could use and the spacious places. The location is also beautiful.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact was fleeting.

Tips for new guests?
The swimming pool in Steenderen is nice and friendly.

July 2021 · Translated from dutch

Host Jaco has responded

There are spacious places on our campsite. And the pizza oven is really an experience!
The swimming pond is 8 m wide, 11 m long and 1.65 m deep. In me and many people's experience a real swimming pond that is enjoyed a lot. If there are already groups, we keep the peace. Therefore, no music may be played outside. Not even at the campsite. People are freer now that more is allowed.
Steenderen swimming pool is also highly recommended, as are the Hanseatic cities of Zutphen, Doesburg and Doetinchem.

Beautiful place with lots of fun and where everything is allowed. The host thinks everything is ok.
You shouldn't have any trouble with partying young people, because you sometimes hear them at the neighbors at the weekend. Furthermore, on the campsite, there are very nice places where everyone can sit by the fire in the evening. You can also use the pizza oven. Swimming pond is nice to cool off in and really nice swimming is possible nearby, Zutphen has a very nice swimming lake. The shop of the neighbors is ideal, you can easily walk there for a nice ice cream, bottle of wine, meat, etc. And Zutphen is a very beautiful (Hanze) city to visit.

How was the contact with the host?
Fun. Good

Relaxed small campsite with a beautiful wild garden to stroll through. The beautiful Zutphen and the picturesque Bronkhorst are nearby and also easy to do by bike. The first few days it was wonderfully quiet. After that it got a bit busier at the campsite. The group in the group accommodation went in very neatly at 23:00 in the evening. On the last evening there was a party in the yard next to the campsite.

How was the contact with the host?
Great contact! If we had any questions, we would visit him in his outdoor office behind the house (at the garden table).

Emilie

Tell us about your experience
A place with a lot of potential, but which we cannot recommend.

Pros: beautiful spots with high grass around it, nice walking paths, friendly atmosphere, number of fire pits available with wood, beautiful location.

Cons: Toilets are dirty. You share 2 showers and 2 toilets with the rest of the campsite, but also with any groups that rent the apartment. In our case, a group of students slamming doors and drinking. One of the two sinks was broken. The water in the shower turns hot-cold-hot-cold very quickly. When we arrived the hot water was broken, but this was resolved after an hour.

Biggest downside as far as we're concerned; the glamping camping spots at the neighbors. In our case there was a group of 20-25 people who played music, shouted, sing, etc. until 5:00 AM. We really didn't sleep a wink. This will probably not be typical for an overnight stay here, but the fact that the owner of our campsite doesn't say anything about it or that the neighbor lets this happen, says everything you need to know about this campsite.

A place with a lot of potential that is not being used.

How was the contact with the host?
We didn't see Jaco, but he was good at responding to emails and was there quickly when the hot water didn't work.

Tips for new guests?
Bring earplugs and be prepared for dirty plumbing.

July 2021 · Translated from dutch

Host Jaco has responded

Thanks for your compliments Emily,
And also for the points for improvement.
A single guest has had some nuisance from the adjacent clamping concerning that night.
I have discussed this with the neighbor in close consultation and he would keep an eye out for enthusiastic people staying overnight.
I keep the washroom clean every day. Now there were a few people who didn't handle this as neatly as usual.
I have to close a tap from the boa due to the 1,5 mtr Corona measures. That's why it's taped.

With best regards,

Contact with host was good. Good explanation and we were allowed to choose a place ourselves. The campsite was nicely laid out, beautiful of course and you had quite a bit of privacy. Definitely recommended for atmosphere. I did not like the large groups that were present on the campsite and were a bit on the noisy side. But they ate a bit further from my camping spot so it didn't bother me too much. However, I found the neighboring campsite a bit less successful. During the day people were often busy with noisy maintenance during the day. Groups came to the neighboring campsite at the weekend and they continued to party until 2 am on the weekend.

Well, he showed us the campsite on arrival. No further contact (needed). There is also a group accommodation on the camping site where a group of noisy young people was staying at the time of our stay. Next to the campsite is also a kind of youth campsite where music was played until late at night. Unfortunately, not a place to camp peacefully. The 2 toilets also have to be shared with the group accommodation, which is not enough during a busy weekend. Too bad, because the camping spots and surroundings are beautiful.

Beautiful place, not suitable for renting out to partying young people and as a quiet place.
The man himself, Jaco, takes absolutely no responsibility and is verbally strong not to be liable: “you should just call the police”. And if you are stuck in the ground with your car in a place designated by him: “then you just have to ask the farmer further down if he will help you and then you give him a tenner”. If you have a complaint about noise at night at 04:00: “I only hear the wind” and “you're the only one complaining” and “maybe you should think about yourself too”.

May 2021 · Translated from dutch

Host Jaco has responded

Dear Dick,
I'm sorry you experienced it that way.
When it was a very rainy period, and the ground was soggy here and there, you yourself moved to a soggy place with the camper. And that wasn't such a good idea. Other than that, no one was inconvenienced. We don't want that at our campsite either. And sometimes you have to give and take a little bit. That's a free spirit.

Yours sincerely ,

We had made a reservation for a tent and caravan site with electricity. On arrival we were allowed to pick a nice spot from Jaco. There were a lot of people, so there were not enough power spots, but that was quickly solved by a distribution block. There were many more people than you would normally expect with 2 toilets and 2 showers, but the sanitary facilities always looked neat and there were no queues. In the evening you could light your own fire. Our boys enjoyed the swimming pond. We could not find the WiFi, but that did not spoil the fun.

We saw many beautiful animals (frogs in the pond, large dragonflies around the pond, swallows trying to eat the dragonflies, storks, an owl, a hare by the tent.)

We had a very good time at this campspace. It is a cosy, small-scale and natural campsite. Incredibly friendly and easy-going owners. There are various places on the campsite where you can sit in bad weather. There are also cooking facilities. Two toilets and showers are a bit small if the group accommodation is also filled. Furthermore, the campsite has few shady spots. It is, therefore, useful to bring an awning or umbrella. Very nice that you can rent a fire bowl for the tent. Recommended for hiking enthusiasts; the circular walk around the beautiful town of Bronckhorts. Beautiful route about 9km through the fields and over dikes.
