Beautiful piece of nature near a nature reserve.
About this campspace #s004106
Quiet, charming place on an old fishing pond, situated on the Schoten-Dessel Canal where cycling is beautiful. Westmalle Abbey is also within walking or cycling distance. Located next to the nature reserve Kooldries-Hoofsweer, ideal for a morning or evening walk. There is also a ping pong table under a shelter for rainy days, a hammock for quiet reading or doing nothing;) and a kub game. Noorderkempen station at 4,7km. Dry toilet provided. Waste can be left behind (sorted of course), drinking water can be refilled, also the possibility to use camping shower (in the wild or) by appointment. We all ask a small contribution for this. Welcome everyone.

Meet Tom, your host
The site is ideal for losing your van, car and tents. The veranda is more like an old canteen of the former fishing club. This is very spacious and ideal for shelter during the rain or a bite to eat. The busy road nearby and the motorway, a little further, are audible. In the evening the noise from the paved road disappears, but you can still hear the highway.
The toilet was all you need. From the location you can take beautiful walks in the adjacent nature reserve or further explore the beautiful region.
Are you looking for 100% peace and quiet in a remote forest, this is not for you. Would you like to relax in the green without being completely cut off from civilization? Supermarkets, bakery and chip shop within a radius of 2 km.
Tom and his wife were also extremely friendly and helpful! We will certainly do this again in the summer when everything is nicely closed. Hopefully the groundwater will rise again so that the pond becomes full again.

We really enjoyed a weekend of rest at the idyllic fishing pond and the beautiful nature, with the Kooldries-Hoofsweer nature reserve just around the corner. There is a handy roof with hammock and table tennis table, dry toilet, and the possibility to make a fire. Tom and his wife are very hospitable and helpful, communication went very smoothly. Also a good base for cycling trips. Highly recommended on every level!
Pets are allowed after consultation. No night noise. Respect for nature. Fire is allowed in 1 designated place and not if it is too dry. Waste can be left sorted for a fee. We live nearby, it may be that my husband is walking around somewhere while he is spotting insects or birds. ;-) (This is actually the intention of this piece of land) Of course with respect for each other!
