    9 pitches

This is primitive camping with a surprise twist! Our region in South Holland might best be described as "textbook Holland".

It is characterised by meadows with cows, farms, rivers, dykes, ditches, willows, storks and sleepy villages. UNESCO world heritage site the Kinderdijk (famous windmills) is just around the corner, along with a number of picturesque small cities and villages.

Our mini campsite is next to the River Lek. We have a truly spacious garden, an orchard and a modest bit of woodland that provides plent of privacy, if that's what you're after.
Bicycles can be parked in the shed, which can also be used for cooking on a wood stove or enjoying a drink.

The river is suited for swimming and the nearest 'beach' is a mere three minute walk. If you know how to command a Canadian canoe on a current you may use our canoe also.

You can order various beverages and food from us, like cold beer, wine, freshly baked bread, espresso etc. as the nearest supermarket is quite a walk. We also offer buckets of iced water for cooling down your own drinks (free) if you wish.

We've recently established a sleeping accommodation in the woodshed which accommodates at least two adults.

You may also spread your sleeping bag on the straw next to this glamporious addition for the most rustic sleeping experience ever.

Experience the best camping South Holland has to offer!

Perfect for...

Couples, nature lovers, adventurers and families

My name is Alexander a.k.a. Lex, living in the countryside, small house big plot with a garden, orchard, woodland; from rather civilised to rather jungle. Which tells something about myself too getting muddy from working in the garden upto being fuzzy about food.
I run a platform of webshops for food and drinks (needless to say: fine food and..).
Apart from camping with a tent or mobile anything you can stay in one of the the prehistoric caravan and in the shed. Where we also have other facilities.
Strive to be remembered for hospitality.

We had a great time the night we stayed here! The place where we pitched the tent had a lot of privacy and you had the feeling as if you were in the middle of nature. I also paid extra for a fresh breakfast and it was very tasty! Highly recommended :)

How was the contact with the host?
He responds very quickly to messages via campspace. When we arrived he greeted us very warmly and immediately gave us a tour of the campsite.

Enjoyed our stay. Green and admired the sunrise, sunset and full moon🌝

How was the contact with the host?
The contact was very pleasant, partly because the host is very witty.

Tips for new guests?
If you want to make a reservation last minute and wait for confirmation, this sometimes takes a while.
Tip, a caller is faster. You can find the phone number via Google.

Campfires are allowed, but bring your own wood because they prefer you not to use wood from them.

A beautiful and peaceful place. Lots of freedom to stay where you want. Campfires can be made anywhere. The breakfast was also good.

What a lovely place to relax for a while. At the very back there was a nice sheltered spot between trees and ditches, where we had privacy and now and then the cows of the neighbors came by. We had a lovely swim in the Lek. A really nice place!

Lex makes sure you feel at home on his land. A very friendly and interested man with whom you can have a nice chat.

Wonderfully quiet spot in a range of large, overgrown garden!
The beach on the other side of the dike was almost continuously empty, so you can still relax there! Of course, when swimming, be careful with suction from passing ships, especially at low tide.

How was the contact with the host?
Fine! Alexander is much to see on the site so if you have a question, you can contact him almost immediately.

Tips for new guests?
It's not really 100% quiet. Due to nearby stable still some noise during the day.

Vera

Tell us about your experience
Definitely not recommended. Bad host, no explanation, the caravan was not cleaned or viewed before staying. There were loose contact lenses, dirt, other people's stuff everywhere. The fridge and stove didn't work, this hadn't been tested so we couldn't cook or store our food. Host made up all kinds of excuses with no solutions and certainly hadn't prepared our stay.

How was the contact with the host?
Contact was poor, a week and a half in advance no contact could be made, our calls and messages were not answered. When we arrived, the host did not know that we would be coming that day, did not know where we were staying and at half past six in the evening had not even looked at or cleaned the caravan before our stay. After this we had to wait hours for the caravan to be supposedly clean, while at the same time the host took extensive time for beer and wine and had us wait outside.

Tips for new guests?
If you want to come at all, bring your own stuff.

It was a super fun experience. Back to basics with a place hidden in the back of the willow forest. The kids loved it, it was like camping in the wild with a campfire every night above which we cooked food. Environment very nice and swimming in the Lek is a must. Couldn't be better!

How was the contact with the host?
Friendly welcome and nice chat with Lex every day.

It was a nice campsite. On arrival we were allowed to choose our own spot. The shower and pump basin were indeed primitive, which was no problem for us. We also ordered breakfast, the first morning it was a bit later but the host completely compensated for this the second morning!

How was the contact with the host?
Pleasant sweet man!

Tips for new guests?
I thought from the photos that the campsite was on the water, there is indeed a river across the street, but it's not that you are camping on water :)

Pleasantly surprised that you can light a fire at your place. And the breakfast is delicious and very reasonably priced considering what you get.
Also great that you can swim in the lek from a beach that is around the corner.
I will definitely come back!

How was the contact with the host?
Top. Thanks again Alexander for the hospitality. Due to the rain on departure, we were unable to personally thank you. So with this one!

Camping with a twist. To find out, you have to experience the camping experience yourself. Completely different than usual. Everything super-simple, but how? The campsite is literally a result of the owner Alexander (Lex). He is carefree and warm, with attention to everyone present. That atmosphere brings the 'Kampeur' into other spheres. Highly recommended for those who want to get away from it all for a while. Highly recommended.

Out of the ordinary.

What a prime location. We were all the way in the back of the huge garden. First a few days as the only guests, then on a Saturday there were suddenly all tents and camper vans (also nice).

How was the contact with the host?
Lex is quite a character. Someone with strong ideas and opinions. You should be interested in that. My partner found it entertaining.

Enjoy the delicious meals Lex cooks. 3 modest courses, but real restaurant level!
He can do magic with meat on his own BBQ. Keep in mind that you will only be served between 19:30 and 20:30.

What a great experience and what we enjoyed. Lex and Astrid are not people who are 13 in a dozen. That is what makes camping at the Foodbazaar campsite so beautiful. The campsite is beautifully situated in the backyard on the dike of the Lek. It is nice and primitive but fully equipped. If you like luxury, then you better drive on. We have experienced it as a wonderful weekend. Lex has provided us with the best tips to experience the area in a different way than the standard routes.

How was the contact with the host?
The owners are wonderful people who run the site in their own way. Yes, it may be different than most people are used to, but that's what makes it so special. In any case, we have a lot of appreciation for Lex and Astrid and we are glad that we visited this campsite. We will never forget this.

Alexander (Lex) place is simply gorgeous. the campsite is located on their property and it's very private. they also offer an outside shed where you have a sink, a private bathroom, and a shower (hot water included). The property is located by the river and just 5 min from a little "river beach" that is perfect for sunbathing and reading. Lex is very mindful of your space and privacy, which was very much appreciated, and he always made sure I had everything I needed. I would definitely stay there again! 100% recommended

Lovely spacious place in a beautiful location. The owners are lovely, lovely people with a story. The facilities are present and neat, but don't expect a 5 star campsite.

What a lovely place! "A surprising twist" is an appropriate recommendation on all fronts for this beautiful and surprising place.
At the time of our arrival, the orchard was partly the setting of an "Italian-looking" family party.
Friendly and cosy. Our host Alex left his family for a while and led us through his different domains. The barn that also houses the outdoor kitchen, shower and toilet, a vintage caravan hidden behind campfire wood, camping spots in the orchard, and hidden spots between bushes, willows and reeds for those seeking tranquility.
It was clear that a nature lover was standing in front of us who can serve his guests with various and surprising places
Sustainability, creativity in the reuse of materials, attention to the outdoors radiates from everywhere.
We came for rest and chose a place afterwards between the willow bushes. Here we wouldn't bother anyone with our bonfire.
The next morning we were also surprised with a delicious fresh croissant.
We will definitely come back here. Johan and Wilma

How was the contact with the host?
Alex is a very hospitable person, who is ready for questions and thinks in solutions. If you are interested in what he does, he will tell you with enthusiasm about the further plans for this beautiful camping spot.

The campsite is in a nice spot with lots of greenery and space. The amenities are fine. However, the communication beforehand left a lot to be desired. Little to no response to my messages, as the owner was on vacation. The day itself I received a message that the key to the caravan would be lost and that there was no solution.... Since we were already on the road, we drove on anyway. Arriving there, the replacement indicated that he knew nothing about a key, but that there had been double-booked. In the end we slept with three people in the two-person caravan, which was obviously not very comfortable. I have never heard from the owner since our stay.
It's a nice place, but with the very annoying and difficult state of affairs I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Went here as a group of friends and part of a scouting for a midweek and loved every hour of it. The surroundings are beautiful and this applies to both nature and architecture, in addition, the location of this camping site is ideal because you are far enough away from the crowds to relax, but you are not driving half an hour to the closest village to be found. Although we initially had the idea that there was not much to do in the area, we were pleasantly surprised by the many activities that are possible. The camping site itself was neatly tidy on arrival and facilities neatly clean. Everything went very relaxed, which created a lot of freedom (and this is secretly nicer than when a list of rules is pushed under your nose). Fixed places were not really the case here, so you can choose your favorite place within the site and decorate it yourself. All in all, one of the best camping spots we've come across so far, where you're free to do your own thing and definitely recommended to the younger camper.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact with Alexander went well, although he was also enjoying his holiday at the same time, everything was well prepared and arranged with temporary replacements where we could go with our questions. He can always be reached online and usually responds within every hour via Campspace.
Dear Alexander, on behalf of the group of friends from Sprundel, thank you very much for making this great camping experience possible.

Tips for new guests?
The water is very close by and if you like activities on or by the water, it is definitely recommended to take advantage of this. In addition, it is recommended for campers who also like to sit on the terrace to go to cafe De Dam, both in the afternoon and in the evening, a very nice and beautiful location. Furthermore, we can certainly recommend a regular walking tour, we have not regretted it.

The site is very beautiful and there are picnic tables, a fridge and a kettle which is very welcome. But we were woken up at 6am and bothered until midnight because of the noise from the farm next door. The kitchen and the toilets are certainly original, but it is not very clean and there is a lot of mess. So I was disappointed.

A tour of the site and then the question 'would you like something to drink'. And so began a special afternoon and evening with Alexander and Astrid. What a story, fun, a tasty chicken from the green egg followed by homemade plum liqueur (or was it pears?). At 01.00 we were in our bed. On the day of departure, farmer Bram came by to pull us up the dike; our 30 year old camper couldn't make it on its own. After having bought some delicious types of cheese from farmer Bram, we could continue our journey with a full gearbox. Thank you Alexander and Astrid for your hospitality, we will not soon forget this experience!

How was the contact with the host?
Contact was very good, Alexander responds immediately to emails and also at the campsite he is always nearby if you need him.

Tips for new guests?
Do not drive down with a heavy camper, you will no longer come up or have a chance of sinking into the ground.

the welcome was very nice and friendly. we stayed with Lex and Astrid from Friday to Sunday afternoon, and it felt like a real holiday. In the morning a morning breakfast from the host and in the evening a glass of wine by the fire in front of your own tent. Fall asleep while the frogs next to you, in the field, sing a serenade. It was Great thanks! tip...nice swimming in the lek.from the campsite, left, about 100 meters away

We were given a short tour of the site and were allowed to pick a spot ourselves.
We thought it was a nice place to stand. Sunny spots and lots of trees for some shade. At the back of the train are some small private places where you can pitch a tent. There were chickens roaming the campground and there were two cats. Lex and Astrid are always present so you can ask them questions and especially Lex likes a chat. It was also very nice that Lex cooked for us. And the breakfast the next morning was very tasty with freshly baked bread rolls and delicious cheese.

We went cycling along the Lek and through the nice villages in the area, saw many windmills and encountered nice terraces. Due to the beautiful weather it was very busy on the dike, especially many motorcyclists, but everyone took each other into account.

Our Campspace adventure in Alexander's caravan was wonderful! We made a campfire and sat outside until late. There were some other guests with whom we had a nice chat while at the same time having enough privacy. Alexander helped us where needed and was a lovely host. Waking up to the sound of birds, cows and sheep, followed by a fully catered breakfast with coffee at the picnic table in the sun. It was great and definitely worth repeating!

We spent two days of total peace in the little caravan. It is a private setting with perfectly cut grass and views of sheep and cows. Lex and his wife have been very kind and attentive, we will definitely visit him again.

It is a nice camping to stay for a couple of days. The Biesbosch is a really beautiful natural park, however not reachable by foot. The host was friendly. The accommodation was not super clean, but I liked the simplicity of it.

We had a really lovely few days with Alex and his wife. In his "man cave", as he calls it, besides beers, there were also tasty salads and toast on the table. So we were received very nicely and were able to stand with our van directly on the waterfront and light a small fire for the BBQ at the bus. We will definitely come back for the fun and the beautiful rural environment with lots of water and tranquility.

The reception by Lex was most cordial. Together with him I selected the best pitch for my bus camper, because the ground is very clayey and sometimes someone gets stuck. With his directions it was no problem for my small (5m) bus camper, but for a bigger one?
Lex is very hospitable, has set up a room with a kettle, coffee maker, wood-burning stove and a fridge that you can unpack, he likes to open a bottle of wine with you and have a chat.
It was a lovely place to stand; On weekdays, however, heavy freight traffic drives over the dike early in the morning and the neighbor is working on his farm from early in the morning until late at night.
Wonderful environment for cycling! We recommend taking the ferry to Schoonhoven via Nieuwpoort, then cycling via Bergambacht to Vlist and back. It is also beautiful to cycle along the Lekdijk and the sunsets are beautiful while sitting on the dike. Had a great 3 days here!

Want to relax for a weekend? Then I recommend spending the night in Alexander's vintage caravan! After a warm welcome we were given an extensive tour of the site after which we could settle down in the caravan. The atmosphere on site is very relaxed and warm.
In addition to the fact that the caravan looks super nice, it is also fully equipped. A nice veranda with chairs, a fridge, a nice bed, a heating element in case it gets cold and enough space for playing fun board games. Furthermore, the other facilities such as toilet and shower are clean and convenient to use. Everything on the site has been cleverly thought through by Alexander with an eye on the wishes of his guests. In addition to all these facilities, we were also spoiled with a delicious breakfast in the morning.
A visit to the Alexander site is recommended if you are looking for a relaxing weekend and if you want to immerse yourself in traditional Dutch sores. A walk over the Nieuwpoort city walls and a tour through nice villages such as Otterland and Molengraaf is highly recommended. As well as a visit to the well-known Kinderdijk. All in all! Top location for a relaxing weekend!

We had a wonderful holiday! The campsite is located in a nice area with a lot to do and the beach within walking distance is very nice. The sanitary facilities are basic, but fine for a few nights.

Alexander, the owner, briefly showed where we could shower and where we could get a cold drink, but it was mostly freedom and joy. The whole weekend he turned out to be very hospitable. Also about checking in and out (we arrived earlier and stayed longer) he was not difficult at all. You were allowed to pick a spot in the orchard yourself. We chose sheep, cows and horses as neighbors and at night we were kept out of sleep by the frogs. Glad we were allowed to make a campfire. There was more than enough wood. Of course the bottle of bubbles made the evening complete at the campfire. The next day we decided to cycle spontaneously along the Lek. Alexander had two extra bicycles and he has the bicycle tires pumped up for us. The area sometimes looks a bit French. At least there is a lot of nature. When we came back from cycling, a cold drink was waiting for us again. We will definitely camp here again

Do you know that feeling of the neighbours drill resounds in your brain? Escape the city stress in Langerak. Come for the beautiful nature, the animals and an absence of Mr. Albert Heijn. Stay for the hospitality, the wonderful jokes of the host and the great breakfast. We have had two wonderful days in the wooden house in the garden. Campfires, walking, sitting in the garden: you don't need more. An absolute must!

This Campspace was great! Beautiful grounds and a relaxed atmosphere. Delicious breakfast (and coffee!). Next to the river Lek with a beach at a few minutes walk, so nice possibility to swim and cool off. Sleep at night with the calming sound of birds, cows, sheep, and the trees that rustle. The caravan was a bit too hot to sleep in during the heatwave (in combination with many mosquitoes), so we set up our own tent to spend the nights. Lex is a super nice host who doesn't bother about anything and cooks deliciously. Really recommended!

From the moment we approached the dyke we immediately felt relaxed; what a beautiful surrounding! While enjoying our welcome drink our host told us very enthusiastically about his Campspace and his own camping experiences. Afterwards, we took a tour through the wide and green garden. This Campspace has a few options; set up your own tent, spend the night in a already set-up tipi, caravan or wooden mancave. We decided to set up our own tent, which was hard to choose because there are so many beautiful spots. We picked a spot all the way in the back surrounded by trees and next to a little creek. From this spot you have a beautiful view overlooking the fields. The rest of the day we started a fire and cooking some delicious food. There are plenty of options to cook, from open fire to brick oven. Also, the host loves to cook so we let them surprise us. Until late in the evening we enjoyed the coziness. The next morning we went for a run; so many beautiful paths towards cute little villages. The well deserved shower overlooks the garden, how nice?! Afterwards, we enjoyed breakfast in the sun and in the afternoon we even went canoeing on the nearby river de Lek. In short; we really enjoyed our time here and had some good laughs. We will definitely come back!
