The area

Our camp site is situated in Westerwolde, in the south-eastern part of the province of Groningen, right next to the German border. It is a lovely area for recreation and it is not yet discovered by mass tourism.

Unlike the rest of the province of Groningen, Westerwolde consists of sand grounds, it is small scaled, somewhat hilly and has a varied landscape. You will find old oak forrests, varied with beautiful views and small streams, calmly flowing through the old farmers land. The hospitable and friendly people will guarantee you an unforgettable holiday in an unexpected part of Groningen!

The area has excellent and extensive biking routes. We have also planned several biking routes starting from the camp site. The route descriptions can be obtained from the reception. End if you like to walk we have 20 scenic routes.

At walking distance from the camp site you will find the fortress Bourtange, a fully restored fortress town from 1742.

Other attractive towns are Sellingen, with its stretched forrests and peatponds and Ter Apel with the very well preserved Kruisheren Monastery, built around 1465.
