A beautiful, quiet, spacious camping spot, exactly what we expected based on the Campspace website. The sanitary facilities are simple, but in order. No more is needed. We could use a fire bowl, very nice!

How was the contact with the host?
Easy to reserve. He also answered a few questions quickly. Friendly contact on site.

Tips for new guests?
Not an ideal walking environment: few small roads.

A sunny and pleasant weekend behind us with family and friends.

There is also the possibility to consume drinks there, which was very convenient for us.
Sanitary is basic and clean.

SILVESTRE

Tell us about your experience
Very well equipped small campsite. Solid sorting of bins with compost, correct sanitary facilities, a shower, a toilet, a washbasin and a sink but that's okay, it's a mini campsite. The cleaning is well done.
Bike paths everywhere.
Only one small downside, a somewhat indelicate farmer neighbor.

How was the contact with the host?
The welcome is friendly, everything is explained and in French.
The week was a bit rainy (the only one in the summer!) and Gerdi came several times to check if we needed anything.
The terrain is great.
A few drinks available in the fridge and it's cool when you arrive.

Tell us about your experience
For the first time I went camping alone and I really enjoyed it. I specifically chose a place far away from where I live. A challenge that I was looking forward to and secretly also a bit afraid of. Although those worries were unnecessary and you will understand that when you arrive there. I was immediately sold and in love with the site. The campsite is an oasis of peace, beautiful vast landscapes, beautiful pieces of land to place your tent and a super friendly host who makes you feel at home. In addition to the beautiful domain, there is everything you need on site. You can take a hot shower, you can easily do the dishes, there is a pleasant toilet and never too many people, so you don't have to wait anywhere. Recycling and attention is paid to the environment, which is very important to me. It also seems like a great place to come with friends, you can sit around the campfire and do a lot of things in the neighborhood. In the end I didn't do that myself, because I needed rest and rest ;)

Super! Very friendly, social and loving man.

A lovely quiet and rural site without the rigours of a strict pitch and site setup, just perfect. Shower was very warm and drinking water was provided for us by the host. Lots of recycling opportunities so one bag was fine for rubbish. Only thing that would help was an outdoor tap for filling up.

How was the contact with the host?
Gerdi was very friendly and was very helpful.

Tips for new guests?
Pitch where you fancy (noting the electric is by the recycling area to the right of the fire area) and Gerdi will be along to welcome you.

Nice place to camp between the pollard willows. View of the fields. Quiet fellow campers.
Do not expect luxury, but very 'basic' sanitary facilities. The toilet was always clean, that was all for me.

How was the contact with the host?
Gerdi is a friendly host. I made a last minute reservation and got a quick response.
In the evening Gerdi does a tour with his guests to give information and have a chat.

Tips for new guests?
As mentioned in the reviews, you can hear the traffic from the adjacent road and the activities of the farms. But the chirping of the birds in the morning more than makes up for it.

A piece of heaven on earth, there in Klerken. It is a wonderful place to sit with a beautiful view of the West Flemish fields. We were a group of 13 people, had a lot of tents with us. We got the barbecue for the evening and could enjoy the fire pit all evening / night. There were two more guests on the property next to us, but it's big enough to be spread out. We also had a dog who isn't great with other dogs, but we were able to crawl far enough that they couldn't disturb each other. There are sanitary facilities, a hot shower, drinkable water, a fridge on the site... In short, everything you need. In the neighborhood you have nice walking routes, a great cafe with folk games (30 min. walk), a beautiful nature reserve, the beautiful Diksmuide ... Highly recommended!

How was the contact with the host?
Gerdi welcomed us with open arms. He responded quickly to all our questions in advance and was also available during our stay. He was flexible with any changes or questions. Top guy!

Tell us about your experience
Stayed 2 nights on the meadow with the motorhome. Pleasantly received by the host. Clean meadow, quiet location. We had our young boxer with us who felt completely happy there because the dogs of the house were also boxers of which 1 turned out to be the brother of our dog 😃. The sanitary facilities are basic but very clean. The only drawback is that it is not easy to get off with the motorhome on a damp meadow (but this is due to the fact that a motorhome is heavy and only has front-wheel drive because the meadow itself was not soggy, only damp from the dew) . When we wanted to leave on Monday, we couldn't get away. Gerdi had gone to work but the neighbors spontaneously came to offer help because she heard we were struggling 😅. They then pulled us out with their jeep. So good host and good neighbors in a beautiful area. Very successful weekend! We will definitely go back again 😊.

We stayed 4 nights among the trees. We were very satisfied, a very spacious place, a friendly and helpful host, the sanitary facilities were very clean and nice hot water in the shower. I also thought it was great that you can sort all waste on the campsite itself. A must in a beautiful region!

How was the contact with the host?
Very well. Very helpful.

Tips for new guests?
Very beautiful region! Be sure to visit the De Blankaart nature reserve!

Tell us about your experience
Two beautiful days were predicted, so we wanted to go out with the roof tent again. Looking for a nice spot in Belgium ended up in Klerken. A beautiful location to settle in for a night, enjoy and relax for a while. It took a while to get our car right, because we also wanted some electricity. The very beautiful spots on the terrain must then be provided with a lot of cable 😉.
We were able to make our own fire in a fire bowl, which is a must for that extra outdoor experience.
Washing up area, toilet and shower are provided, very neat and are maintained daily.
Too bad we could only stay one night.

How was the contact with the host?
Gerdi was easily accessible and super friendly. On arrival we could choose our own spot on the property and he later came to give us a little explanation about the facilities. Pleasant host.

Tips for new guests?
Be sure to provide enough cable if you want some electricity.

Nice & dry terrain. Ideally located for excursions, even around the corner there is a lot to do (provincial domains, the playman...). Sanitary is basic but neat and clean. You are allowed in "1 place" with 5 tents/10 people, that was not entirely clear to us.

How was the contact with the host?
Hospitable host who was ready with advice and action.

Tips for new guests?
The player => brown cafe with folk games

Tell us about your experience
We went to stay with some friends between the trees. The place is equipped with a clean toilet, sink and shower. We also enjoyed the campfire every night. There was enough wood available for us to burn. In the morning you could wake up to the singing of the birds and the sun peeping through the trees. The view of the fields of the farming village is breathtaking, especially when the sun takes its last breath.

How was the contact with the host?
When we arrived Gerdi was not present. Fortunately we were able to reach him by phone. For problems the house is very close, but otherwise you see the host little.

Tips for new guests?
We have used large wooden blocks, but camping chairs are always handy. One last tip; make sure to provide enough tents for the storage of conveniences. After all, you are staying in Belgium and not in southern Spain, so a rain shower can always pop up.

We spent a long weekend at this camp site with my youngest son. On Saturday we visited Diksmuide as well as the death corridor and the Ijzertoren ( museum on the iron ) . In the evening lit a fire and enjoyed the beautiful views ...

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly and helpful owner .

Tips for new guests?
Bus ( n°30 ) stop not far from the camp site takes you to and from Diksmuide .

- nice place to camp
- too bad that during our 2 night stay there was a very noisy group who had fun until 3 am. There was not much more to notice from the quiet place. Just know that this can also happen when you book something where people rent out places.

How was the contact with the host?
- went very smoothly
