About this campspace #s000273
A nice place for a camper, with 4 guests it is small and cozy near the pond. From this location you can enjoy beautiful walking and cycling in nature. If you go to the main road you are on a bike junction road immediately. For hikers, there is a walking route from the Campspace. At your tent you can enjoy the Fish in the pond and hear the birds. In the evening it is great dreaming away, staring into the campfire or up to the stars.
There is a barrel sauna on the Campspace, which you can use alone or together (for a fee). There are sanitary facilities (shower and toilet) for the guests. There is a wood stove and firewood available by the camping spot. Instead of a fee you can make a donation.

We were warmly welcomed by Hanneke and Frans on arrival. With our tent, we were allowed to find a place around their beautiful pond and were nicely informed about their work and self-sufficiency of energy in their yard. They are even completely disconnected from the gas network! They have a wonderful place in the Frisian landscape which we can certainly recommend. The sanitary facility with toilet, sink, and shower is very neat and clean. There are beautiful walking areas in the area and Hanneke and Frans are happy to provide you with all the information you need. We were allowed to use a fire pit and there was even a wood-burning stove outside on the terrace deck near the pond where we could gaze into the flames of the fire.
Recently I stayed for a night in the garden of a lovely family in Wijnjewoude in Friesland, the Netherlands. They have a big pond and garden that they have prepared for camping with a tent or camper. They call it Dead End Road. The weather was clouded and I didn't had much time to stay for a longer time. Otherwise I would have take a moment in their sauna in the garden. But the family is very kind and you can buy some fresh eggs from their chicken for breakfast or some biologic meat from their pigs. The pond is also full of fish, but those are not for consumption. What I really liked about the place is that they are almost gaz-free and run their camping garden on solar energy. In the surrounding, you can find a lot of different biking and walking routes. You can also visit some old towns that are very nearby or go to the bigger city Drachten.
I arrived at the Campspace in the afternoon. There were 3 other campers around the lake. The weather was great so I was able to sit outside and quickly got in touch with the neighbours. What I did not know in advance, and what was a very nice surprise, is that there is a cute wooden house with a sauna, which you can use for 5. So ultimate camping luxury! Frans is a friendly host and is happy to help if you have questions or just to have a chat. He stated that only campers are welcome, but sometimes it happens that people come with a tent.
It is a fantastic beautiful place where there are mostly campers, but Frans, the host, also has a beautiful place for you and your tent. The place is very peaceful. You hardly hear the nearby N381 thanks to the hill between the road and the Campspace. Frans is a very friendly host. You can walk near the camping site and the deer also walk nearby. The site stated that you could fish in ‘the pond’. But Frans said that this is no longer possible. He now breeds koi carp, grass carp, and gold winds in the water. It looks great when he feeds them!
