An abundance of peace and greenery amidst fens, heather and forests. And besides nature, Flemish culture and ambiance is never far away. In addition, there are recreation lakes for the necessary water fun. These are the main advantages of camping at Baalse Hei in the Kempen.
From the reception you will reach the tent of caravan via grassy nature paths. The quietly located pitches can be more or less shaded, according to preference. Furthermore, they are equipped with water, electricity, drainage and cable television. In addition to these pitches, this campsite also has several types of rental accommodation: luxury mobile homes, safari tents and camping huts.
Lots of fun on the water
The three water bodies on this campsite provide lots of water fun amongst nature. First of all in the swimming pond near the bar/restaurant, with adjacent sandy beach and grassed area. You will also find a rowing and fishing pond. Further down the grounds there are play areas with swings, slides, walking bridges and shelters for the children. Adults will also have no difficulty keeping fit at Camping Baalse Hei with the sport fields and sporting facilities (soccer, tennis, table tennis, volley ball and petanque).
At the campsite you will be able to buy fresh bread. The tavern has a menu to appease both small and large appetites. If you prefer takeaway, you can find it at the Belgian Fry. Obviously, you will also find the well-known beers of this region here.
The numerous marked walking trails and cycling routes in the area are an invitation to explore the Antwerp Campines. With beautiful and interesting towns like Turnhout, Antwerp, Ghent and Bruges at relatively short distance, there is a plethora of day trips to choose from. Theme Park Bobbejaanland is only a 20 minute drive away.

Wonderful woody location; Touring pitches in large bays separated by small hedgerows.
Good toilets close by 3 ladies & 2 gents and washing up facilities. Showers further away and did not visit.
Good CDP and rubbish disposal. Large fishing lake a small walk away and also another swimming lake which looks like it needs some tlc. There was a taverna (did not use) which closed at 6pm may stay open longer in season. Would definitely use again if in area.
No English menu in the restaurant but 1.5 h drive to Brussels and 1 h drive to Antwerpen makes it perfect location for people looking to do some sight seeing in Belgium. Also, the camp is located outside of a lovely little town. I highly recommend this place to anyone.
We spent 2 nights and found it very quiet and relaxing and highly recommend this campsite if peace and quiet is what you are after.
