About this campspace #s005612

Your host

Ruth

The 15 hectare blueberry plantation of the Schrijnwerkers family is located in the Limburg Kempen, at the foot of the Oudsberg in Gruitrode.
The Oudsberg is the highest and largest open drifting dune in Flanders. It rises 85 meters above sea level and is surrounded by beautiful heathlands, forests
and grasslands. Since 1998, the Oudsberg has been recognized as a Flemish nature reserve. At the top you can enjoy a beautiful view. The Oudsberg is also part of the candidacy to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Step to the top from the plantation. On foot, by bike or mountain biking: there are plenty of challenges on the edge of the Oudsberg through a varied landscape.
From about mid-July to mid-September you can enjoy a delicious piece of blueberry pie in the cafeteria every day. On some days in the season you can pick your own blueberries.

Tell us about your experience
We had a very nice weekend at the blueberry plantation. Our pitch was perfect for this time of year. We stood alone on a newly acquired property right in front of very large trees with a view of the blueberries. Why was the place perfect for us? We had sun in the morning, shade in the hot afternoon and in the evening the sun shone slightly past the trees so that we could enjoy the evening sun a little longer. What you have to be aware of in any case, you camp there during ongoing operations. Not that the work there was noisy, but the sanitary facilities are shared with the seasonal workers and these are not separated into males and females. So don't be squeamish. But if you act a little anti-cyclically, you hardly get in each other's way. The showers are pre-tempered, which means you cannot change the temperature yourself. But that was ok, the water was never too cold and we are so-called "wimps". It's just not a classic campsite. If you need electricity, no problem either, there are enough cable drums there. In the in-house cafe and shop you can taste and purchase everything to do with blueberries. The cake was awesome. Only the adjacent N370 can be heard until late in the evening, depending on traffic. At night everything was ok, with us!

How was the contact with the host?
Contact with Ruth was always friendly. She is helpful and shows and explains the conditions on site in detail.

Tips for new guests?
Don't forget toilet paper!

Had a very nice 2 days! We camped with the tent on a spacious lawn next to the berry plantation. It's great that there is a playground for the children and a terrace for the adults. Friendly reception!

Very good!

At the time we camped, we were alone in the campsite. Yet the farm was not abandoned. There were many contractors at work. We were in a quiet place near all sanitary facilities.

How was the contact with the host?
A sweet, warm and hardworking woman. She is always looking for a solution. She gave us a tour of her company upon arrival.

Tips for new guests?
Come during a time when it is self-picking. So you can pick and immediately enjoy your tent.

To enjoy! And be sure to check out the self-picking days.

Tell us about your experience
Stayed two nights at this campsite.
Nice flat surface with a view of the berry fields.
Location is great. You can walk and cycle into nature via the path. Dune belt is close by.
Enough toilets, even a disabled toilet.
Unfortunately, there were also a number of drawbacks to the stay.
The grass was mowed but not collected. As a result, you are constantly running this in the camper / tent.
Drinking water can only be tapped at the store via a hose. Difficult to fill bottle. Only available during store opening hours. On Sunday I could not tap water unfortunately.
Showers to be used at the refugee reception center location. In the evening it is very busy here. The space is a Turkish bath. There was no one there on Sunday morning. Showers cannot be adjusted in terms of heat. Also go out every few minutes.
Were not clean either.
There was no gray water drain from the camper.
I was not bothered by this myself, but there is no general refrigerator.

How was the contact with the host?
Very kindly received. We received a good cycling map and explanation / tips of the area.
The couple had forgotten about the power and it was provided by the host.

Tips for new guests?
There are only two places for electricity. So if you need this I would book in advance.
In the morning it is not crowded at the showers.

Scout Krisztian About the scout program

Tell us about your experience
My stay at the Blueberry Farm was very relaxing and positive. There is plenty of room to park your camper or set up your tent. There are also facilities available and they are well kept taken care of. During my stay I took a long hike around the farm, which is surrounded by beautiful nature. I would highly recommend visiting.

How was the contact with the host?
The host was very attentive and welcoming. Ruth is a great communicator and she was available at all times.

Tips for new guests?
There is a store associated to the farm with delicious fresh products which is definitely worth a try.

Very friendly hostess who speaks good German and explained everything to us on site.

Tips for new guests?
More suitable for mobile homes and less for tents, at least in summer, as there is little shade.

Scout Iris About the scout program

Tell us about your experience
We arrived on the site, you immediately get the blueberry farm feeling! Tractors and a large field with plants were greeting us on arrival. We got a good size parking space for our campervan. Some other people were already camping here with their campers or cars with rooftop tents. But there was enough space between all the spots. It was a lovely and quiet place at night. The blueberry fields were right next to the campspace which gave pretty views. There were two sanitary options. One with only toilets and the other one with showers. You share the facilities with the seasonal workers or at this moment in time with people from Ukrainia, who were fleeing the war. There is also a shop with lots of blueberry products and a lovely little library. From the site you can directly do a 3 hike into the forest and the dunes. The times of arrival and departure were super flexible which we appreciated a lot!

How was the contact with the host?
It was perfect, Ruth was very helpful and explained us lots about the blueberry farm and all the products in the shop

Tips for new guests?
Definitely do the hike from the field and buy some nice local products form the shop!

Experienced an early spring sunrise surrounded by an inspiring bustling company. Nice a-typical base to explore the region and to learn more about how such a company works.

How was the contact with the host?
The owner and lady of the shop gave us a warm feeling and welcoming reception. They spontaneously took plenty of time for us. Top!

Tips for new guests?
Know what you are booking. If you want to sleep in for a long time in peace, it is best to check first whether it is possible? It didn't bother us at all.
Yummy blueberry pie, don't forget them when you leave!
Not a place for uninspired instagrammers.
