Camping Houtum is located in the Belgian Kempen, near Kasterlee. This medium sized campground is ideal for those seeking peace and quiet, hikers and nature lovers. In spring, all of Kasterlee is tinted orange during the pumpkin festivals. The high point is the pumpkin regatta, where participants kayak down the river in a hollowed out pumpkin.

Charming atmosphere

The campground is located on a little river in an extensive forest and heath area, the warmest place in Belgium in the summer. The reception is located in a modern building surrounded by greenery.

The campground has little definition between the campsites, so there is an open and convivial atmosphere. If you need more shade or privacy, you should bring a parasol and/or windscreen.

Fun for discovery and play

Children can play for ours in the indoor and outdoor playground. There are also great things to do in the area, such as in the Forest of the Gnomes. The Bobbejanland fun park is nearly around the corner (6 km). Curious and sporty campers can participate in a treasure hunt, geocaching, cycling or kayaking in the natural area around Kasterlee.

A lovely nibble

Campingcafé Congé looks charming , light and airy. Here you can order coffee, tea and snacks (also to take away). There are regular organized activities as well as pool, dancing and bingo. Outside there is a lovely terrace where the fire baskets are lit when the evenings cool off. The campground does not have a shop (supermarket 1 km away), but you can order bread rolls.

Well organised

The bathroom facility is new and modern and is kept spic and span. There are also bathroom facilities for the disabled. There is free wifi all over the campground, with nearly all areas having good reception.

Travelling party: Single

Liked - mooie omgeving, mooie camping, prettige medewerkers.
Disliked - In een zaal op de camping was een (trouw) feest. Dit duurde tot 4 uur 's nachts. De dreunende muziek was zeer hinderlijk en hield me uit m'n slaap.

Deze camping voldoet aan alle verwachtingen. Niet in het minst de ondersteuning van de uitbaters. Niets is hun teveel om van onze vakantie een leuke tijd te maken.
Naast de camping is er van de group Van Eyck een restaurant waar men voortreffelijk kan eten.
