Atmospheric camping in the Knaus retro caravan.
About this campspace #s003558
** Winter facilities: campfire, hot water, hot shower, shelter, covered kitchen and heating in accommodation **
One of them is our restored 1977 Knaus caravan! Forty-three years old and now in a condition like never before. You can spend the night here cheaply and very nice with the two of you. It is a special place to stay with many nice nostalgic elements.
The caravan is equipped with a double bed, all basic amenities such as bed linen and towels, a kitchenette and a stove. There is a sun awning in front of the caravan.
Inside there is a toilet, a shower and a sink.
At the fire pit (wood is usually available for a small price) you can enjoy the falling night and the starry sky.
In 2001 we started developing a food forest on our site of approximately 2 ha. The forest is now growing rapidly and offers space for intimate places to stay or camp.
There is therefore plenty of room for placing several tents without causing problems for others.
The location is at the foot of the Hondsrug in Drenthe and is an ideal starting point for a large number of nice excursions, beautiful walks or cycling tours. Guests are allowed to use the entire site and, if they like, make a fire on the fire pit in the evening.
This place has a lot to offer for guests who want to respect nature and others.

Meet Harro, your host
I enjoy being active in nature and with this beautiful place and I enjoy sharing it with our guests.
In addition to an indoor B&B, I rent out two retro caravans and a few camping spots on the camping field in the middle of this area. Finally, we have some special "off grid" spots for campers who like to be a bit remote and enjoy simple camping.
We really enjoyed staying with Harro. We were warmly received and there are good rules to keep it safe for everyone during Corona time. Beautiful environment which we discovered on our paddle boards. The site is well maintained and you are sheltered between beautiful surroundings. We would like to come back again.
The host was very friendly and welcoming. The location was very nice and well maintained. It was our first time to use Campspace and we are now big fans of the concept. We can highly recommend this location and we will definitely come back here.
Last week I stayed a night at Harros Campspace. I had an off-grid spot all to myself (because of Corona the compost toilets cannot be shared, so there was only room for two off-gridders). So nice and quiet! Harro was extremely friendly, showed me my spot and just left me alone, although he said that I could always come if I had any questions. Did not see him again until the next morning when waving goodbye. So top, exactly what you want! The terrain is beautiful and playfully arranged with different heights of grass, all kinds of trees and bushes. Not an even football field, very nice! After a day of bike packing you can easily spend a night here. In the evening there is also plenty of opportunity to walk in the beautiful surroundings, and in the morning (very) early you will be treated to a musical concert by the thousands of birds in the nearby forest. Behind the campsite (and therefore fairly close to my spot), there is a road. Its a back road where maybe one car drives by every half hour. I did not experience this as disturbing, even at night. Really recommended!
What a beautiful quiet place in Drouernerveen deep in Drenthe. Harro received us kindly and immediately showed us the spacious garden and facilities. The green garden, surrounded by tall trees, is sun-drenched and has many intimate areas in the shade for romantic and peaceful enjoyment of the surroundings. Harro said we could pitch our tent anywhere we wanted. We could use the refrigerator and the sanitary facilities and we could also separate the waste there. What a nice place. We will definitely come back here!
I first stayed at Harros. That was a very nice place among the beautiful vegetation (plants). Dragonflies and birds in abundance. Very much enjoyed it.
Camping in the Netherlands has taken on a new dimension for us. A great place in a great province. The space of the campsite, the peace and simplicity have given us a wonderful weekend. Harro is a pleasant host, easily accessible and gave us that free feeling that we were looking for
We stayed here one night with a tent on the bike. We were warmly received and informed about the rules during Corona. We were also shown around the site. What beautiful terrain. We were allowed to put up our tent wherever we wanted. Wonderful to wake up in the morning with those wonderful nature sounds around you. Especially the various species of birds. Highly recommended, we will visit again.
We decided to have a short three day holiday at Harros Campspace. Hosts Harro and Anke are very friendly and welcoming. ??The garden is wonderful, spacious and beautifully arranged. The Forest Garden is slowly growing with new vegetation. ??In the evening and in the early morning you are greeted by a variety of bird songs. And we were lucky enough to be greeted by a nice cat taking a stroll. For walking enthusiasts we recommend visiting Het Boomkroonpad (different walking distances) and Drouwenerzand. Our stay was wonderful, quiet and relaxed. Just what we needed.
We experienced camping at Harros as a fun adventure. Is it just using the hudo (#doyouneedaholeintheground). Harro has created a beautiful place in his food forest. We were welcomed and shown around; nice to see how enthusiastically he talked about the area. There may also have been a deer roaming around. Unfortunately, we did not see it, but that should not spoil the fun because you are surrounded by greenery on all sides. And what could be better than waking up in the morning from an orchestra of birds. You call this enjoyment in its purest form. Do you still have doubts? Take it from me, you wont regret it.
It was very good at Harros. He is very hospitable and has a beautiful place. We will go there again!
I found the location, host, and atmosphere fantastic. I plan to come back again, while I usually never do this, in the same place. I highly recommend staying with Harro. And tell him what you plan to do in the area, he will provide you with appropriate and fun advice. It is noticeable that Harro gets energy from the enjoyment of his guests
I had a great time at Harros. A nice and pleasant host and hostess. Great caravan I stayed in and because of Corona private toilet and good shower room that was kept clean by myself. The garden in which the caravan was located was beautiful. Very quiet area and a small village in the immediate vicinity with a local supermarket, a bakery and a butcher. So fully equipped. The immediate area is beautiful for cycling and viewing the dolmen is definitely worth it. You can stay at the campsite with a dog if he is on a leash
The use of the toilets and the shower is subject to conditions due to the strict requirements of the RIVM.
We therefore ask you to leave the shower clean and disinfected after use.
The necessary material is ready.
We will of course keep the appropriate distance with you, for everyone's safety.
This place has a lot to offer for guests who want to respect nature and others.
Electronic sound carriers do not fit here, but something like a guitar all the more.
