About this campspace

Our campsite in Drenthe is uniquely situated in nature and close to a historically charged place: the memorial center of the former Westerbork camp. The name of our campsite (“Tikvah”) was therefore not chosen by chance and means 'Hope' in Hebrew. Our campsite is located in the middle of nature and has pitches of up to 250 m2. From the campsite you walk directly into the forest and onto the heath "Het Groot Zand". A visit to camp Westerbork is very worthwhile (also very suitable for children). Guided tours are given every day. The museum is highly recommended for those who want to know more about Jewish history and life in the camp during World War II.
There is a cycle path in front of the campsite and various hiking trails behind the campsite where your dog is also allowed to run loose in the woods!

Perfect for...

Families, young families, nature lovers, walkers and cyclists

We are Karin and Eelco Schaap and are campers ourselves. That's why we don't like park-like campsites with paved streets. For example, we have set up our campsite as we would like to camp ourselves: camping in nature and playfully set up camping grounds in Drenthe. Above all: SPACE to enjoy nature

Tips

  • The memorial center of the former Camp Westerbork is 700m away.

  • Take a night walk on the heath (Het Groote Zand)

  • All amenities are available in the village: a supermarket, restaurant, bakery, ice cream parlour, petrol pump, bicycle rental

  • There is a restaurant 1000 meters away.

  • A restaurant is 5 minutes by bike.

Just a campsite and not quite what we are looking for when we think of Campspace. The availability of the large pitch at the edge of the forest was also not communicated properly to Campspace. The place was not there and we were assigned another place. No discount, nothing. "Then you should be at Campspace" was the answer. Not quite what I expected but also not in the mood for a discussion on a nice weekend.

How was the contact with the host?
see review.

Tips for new guests?
If you are looking for a real 'Campspace' and not a campsite I would choose something else. A nice place as a campsite, especially with children.
